Did you ever hear the phrase “Go big or go home”? They like to use it a lot on ESPN and in other macho franchises or industries. Melissa & Doug’s plush pug may not be macho or intimidating, but he sure does fit that saying to a T. Don’t believe us, because he’s “just a toy”? Fine, hotshot.
Have some examples. The Jolly Green Giant, Paul Bunyan, the Colossus of Rhodes (though standing only 107 feet in height, which was a marvel then, many modern statues eclipse it), Sultan Kösen (who, despite his name isn’t in fact Arabian royalty, but a farmer in Turkey. He’s currently the world’s tallest man, at 8’3”). Of course we can’t forget Tim Robbins (Shawshank Redemption, Bull Durham, Twister, etc etc). He’s currently the tallest actor to win an Academy Award (6’5”). Then there’s Peter Mayhew. Don’t remember who he is? He’s only the tallest Brit to ever play a walking carpet with a crossbow.
Now, at only 17 inches long, 16 inches tall and 11 inches wide, Melissa & Doug’s ponderous plush pug won’t be getting a call from Guinness anytime soon (after all Sir Alec has been dead for eleven years – as of August 5th, 2011), but he’s definitely an elegant dog for a more civilized age. Despite looking as wrinkly as a Hutt, Melissa & Doug manage to capture the unique charm and personality of the pug in this larger than life plushie pal.
