REVIEW: PANDORA DISNEY TIGGER CHARM
“Once in awhile someone amazing
comes along… and here I am.” – Tigger
Tigger, the epitome of fun and friendship is portrayed delightfully in this charm.
As a Winnie-the-Pooh fan, the PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm (N0. 792135EN80) was a must-have from the PANDORA Disney 2017 Spring Collection. The PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm is so cute captures Tigger’s loveable expression perfectly.
The original drawings for the Winnie-the-Pooh stories were by E H Shepard. After Disney bought the rights to A A Milne Winnie beloved Winnie-the-Pooh, some of the characters altered a little. In the E H Shepard’s illustrations Tigger is mostly seen walking on four feet but the Disney mostly features him walking or bouncing on two feet.
E H Shepard based his illustrations on the real stuffed toys owned by Christopher Robin which featured in the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. The orange colour and dark stripes are similar in both Shepard and Disney versions of Tigger.
These days the Disney interpretation of Tigger is widely recognised, with distinctive orange and black stripes, large eyes, a long chin and of course a springy tail for bouncing!
The PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm features Tigger in a seated pose, which holds true to E H Shepard’s illustrations, whilst the long nose and eyes are more similar to the Disney version of Tigger.
Er, jump? Tiggers don’t jump, they bounce.
Like the PANDORA Disney Eeyore Charm, the PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm has a pink enamel detail. The pink enamel on Eeyore’s Bow and Tigger’s Flower is a slightly different shade, which you can see in the styling images.
The PANDORA Disney Tigger and Eeyore Charms are very similar in size and weight. The PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm is a threaded charm, and as such is relatively heavy for its size.
The detail on the PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm is really quite incredible! The stripes go all around Tigger’s body. On close examination of the Tigger Charm, I feel that the PANDORA design is spot on and that PANDORA were faithful in his representation.
Tigger’s long, stripy, tail curves up his back in a playful manner and when you look at it, you can feel an adventure is about to happen!
The PANDORA and Disney hallmarks are on bottom of the PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm. The Tigger Charm sits quite nicely on the bracelet and you don’t notice the hallmarks when wearing the charm.
'Oh Tigger, where are your manners?' 'I don’t know, but I bet they’re having more fun than I am.'
If you read about my last PANDORA haul you will know I bought quite a few PANDORA Disney charms in the last PANDORA promotion. In this styling I used my sparkly new PANDORA Disney Mickey Clasp Bracelet (No. 590512cz) and created a Pink and Green Disney theme! I really love this design as it is pretty and playful and with the Magnolia Bloom Clips it has a Spring element too. I used all four of my Winnie-the-Pooh characters: Piglet, Tigger, Pooh and Eeyore. You will also notice the new Donald and Daisy Duck charms, Mrs Potts & Chip and Tinker Bell’s Dress all from the PANDORA Disney Spring 2017 Collection.
Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce.
I love my PANDORA designs to be symmetrical and in this design have the PANDORA Disney Piglet Charm in the centre with Eeyore and the PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm at either side. I also used the Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes Charm (No. 791818mop) to create balance with the Pooh Portrait Charm (No. 791566). The Shoreline Sea Glass Murano Charms (No. 791608) compliment the pink enamel of Tigger’s flower and Eeyore’s bow. If you don’t already have the Sea Glass Murano Charms I recommend you add them to your collection soon as they so versatile! They are retired in some countries but are still available from BeCharming.com.
As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen!
In my third styling I highlighted the fuchsia flower of the PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm with the Orchid Pendant and the Cerise Encased in Love Charm. Once again I used the Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes Charm to create balance with the Pooh Portrait Charm. I really love this style as it is bright and fun yet quite simple and easy to wear.
Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.
The PANDORA Leather Bracelets are perfect for Spring and Summer or when you want a more relaxed look. I used the Pink Double Leather Bracelet (No. 590705cmp-d) with the PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm for a softer look. The Pink Petite Facets and the pearly shimmer of the Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes Charm make this quite sweet and delicious design.
I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each others dreams, we can be together all the time.
For a more vivid style, I used the Honeysuckle Pink Double Leather Bracelet (No. 590734chp-d). The Honeysuckle Pink is perfect match with the flower on the PANDORA Disney Tigger Charm.
My verdict on the Disney Tigger Charm? As Tigger would say, 'The wonderful thing about tiggers, Is tiggers are wonderful things...'
