Complete Angry Birds Plush Guide for Collectors and Kids in 2022

Are you restless like Chuck, the enthusiastic roadrunner? Let me turn you into a calm and collected Terrence with my complete Angry Birds Plush Guide. If you’re like me, your urge to collect every classic plushy is bubbling over, but please, hold your rage if you’re like Bomb.

Long before the squishy plushies embraced our lives, Angry Birds was a game developed by Rovio Entertainment. I found myself obsessed with the flightless birds flying through the air, knocking pigs down left, right, and center.

The irony of flightless birds battling green pigs combined with the rage released from each pull was undoubtedly satisfying for me. I have another obsession—collecting every quality plushy representing a character reminding me of an exciting experience—hence, Angry Birds.

Let me put my Matilda hat on and show you the wondrous world of Angry Birds plushies. My favorite is the original Red because I envision myself as a responsible leader with a mild case of hotheadedness. The mildness is debatable, but that’s another story.

Why Wait? Straight to the Bottom Line

Angry Birds took the world by storm as the characters became loved by children and adults who took a timeout to destroy Pig Island. As a parent, I can assure you that Angry Birds was a means for adults to release anger. It’s inappropriate to hurl a bird plushy at your child.

Please, don’t do that! However, flinging emotional birds through the air to destroy the naughty pigs in a game is appropriate. I’ll admit that I love Angry Birds as much as my kids do. I own a few plushies from Angry Birds, and my kids also love the characters.

Every Angry Birds plushy has pros and cons, and maybe choosing one is about picking the relatable emotions. I’m not sugarcoating anything. Each plushy belongs to specific flocks, which I’ll share with you. My favorite remains Red from the original Angry Birds Movie flock.

Angry Birds plushies come in various shapes and sizes, and there have been 17 flocks, but many of them are limited editions. I’ll share the 13 plushies currently available, and some of them have other plushies I’ll recommend you consider.

Some Angry Birds flocks include Star Wars, Space, Rio, Angry Birds Movie, and Stella. It’s challenging to collect each bird from every flock because of the limited editions, but my 13 choices cover the most popular Angry Birds plushies.

Hunting for your favorite character from Angry Birds is an adventure. Finding your kid’s favorite character from the brand is likely easier because the games, movies, and series have evolved through generations, even turning Bomb into Firebomb, an upgraded and level-headed cool guy.

You’re bound to find an Angry Birds plushy that reminds you of your escape into your smartphone when the game first launched. Mine is Red, but yours might be Chuck, the speedy bird, Matilda the motherly bird, or Stella, the vibrant soul.

Keep reading if you want to find an available character to add to your collection or your child’s wishlist.

Angry Birds Plush Guide: Available Character Plushies

Are you an Angry Birds lover who also likes Star Wars? Do you want your Angry Birds plushies on your backpack? The Angry Birds options will serve many purposes, whatever you desire from your plushies. I’ll only share what’s available in 2022 to prevent disappointment.

Red Plush

Red Plush

You can’t own Angry Birds plushies without having the main character. I relate the most to Red because I have a calm and collected nature that quickly becomes hotheaded when someone pushes me into a corner. I sometimes make decisions without thinking, and that’s Red.

Red is a native to Bird Island and is known to have a short temper, being somewhat rude, or so it seems. Let’s face it, his personality describes many people, and I’m not embarrassed to match it. I’m a “nice” person, but people can sometimes misunderstand me as a rude person.

Key Features

  • Character: Red
  • Flock: Angry Birds Movie
  • Size: 11″
  • Type: Durable but soft plushy with double stitching and cotton fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Brand: Shinmoon
  • Available: Amazon

Pros

  • It’s a traditional plushy that fits well into collections or makes a great cuddle buddy for kids
  • It represents the main protagonist from the series, games, and movies
  • The design is detailed, except for the eyes, but they’re safe for babies and toddlers

Cons

  • Everyone misunderstands the character as a rude bird
  • The eyes could be glass to add more detail
  • It’s not as soft as the bean bag version available at Walmart

Other Red Plushies to Consider

Bomb Plush

Bomb Plush

Bomb is another character you can’t avoid owning. Even if you have to tip-toe around him, he has so much personality, but surprising him could set him off! Bomb might have some cautionary characteristics, but he’s such a lovable character in the movies.

Bomb is the kind of bird you want to snuggle up with at night. He’s the kind of friend you want next to your children, and his cute face makes you forget about the ticking time bomb. He can even teach children how to practice staying calm in stressful situations.

Key Features

  • Character: Bomb
  • Flock: Angry Birds Movie and Angry Birds Movie 2
  • Size: 7″
  • Type: Traditional plushy with huggable bean-filled fabric and double stitching
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes (using the coming tips)
  • Brand: Johnny’s Toys
  • Available: Walmart

Pros

  • It’s a conventional plushy that suits collectors and kids
  • It represents a much-loved character who tries his best to stay calm when the pressure rises
  • It’s a safe design for kids over three, and the details are unique, especially on the flightless wings

Cons

  • The plushy could be more significant and rounder to represent Bomb better
  • The eyes can be more detailed, especially for collectors
  • The feathery tail seems out of proportion

Other Bomb Plushies to Consider

Chuck Plush

Chuck Plush

Chuck is a smooth-talking, fast-moving, and wild bird from the Island, and he has no time to slow down. Chuck reminds me of my son, who’s always running from one place to the next, never spending his energy entirely. That’s why I think of Chuck as a roadrunner.

I like that Chuck also thinks fast and has enough enthusiasm to match his speed. Chuck goes from zero to 60 in a split second, and my son has the same skill. I sometimes feel like a cartoon character with my head spinning like mad when he zooms past me.

Key Features

  • Character: Chuck
  • Flock: Angry Birds Movie and Angry Birds Movie 2
  • Size: 7″
  • Type: Plush character head with a soft, huggable polyester fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Brand: Johnny’s Toys
  • Available: Amazon

Pros

  • It’s an incredible plushy for collectors and kids who love the character
  • It represents a character with endless energy and optimism (if only parents had the same energy)
  • The plushy is soft and safe for kids of all ages, and it’s a bright color

Cons

  • The plushy could be full-bodied, but it’s only the head
  • It could have more detail and a better design
  • The crest is flimsy and can break off during a wash

Other Chuck Plushies to Consider

Stella Plush

Stella Plush

Stella is a vibrant bird with so much personality. She’s cheeky and free-spirited, always striving to get what she wants, making me think of my little girl again. Stella is like a princess who fends for herself, and my little girl makes me think she won’t rely on anyone when she’s older.

Stella has a childish and playful nature, but don’t be fooled because she’s also as bright as they come. Stella often tricks the pigs when they try to steal eggs from Bird Island. She’s a pink bird with whom you don’t want to mess.

Key Features

  • Character: Stella
  • Flock: Stella and Angry Birds Movie
  • Size: 7″
  • Type: Full-bodied plush with soft, huggable polyester fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes (follow the coming tips)
  • Brand: License to Play Inc.
  • Available: Walmart

Pros

  • The Stella plushy works for collectors and kids over three
  • It has beautiful details, more than other Angry Birds plushies, especially the crest and eyes
  • The plushy is cuddly and safe, and it’s a gorgeous toy for girls

Cons

  • The limbs seem a little flimsy and could break off if you wash them too often
  • The striking pink color makes it challenging to add to a boy’s collection
  • It’s not available in different sizes and designs

Other Stella Plushies to Consider

  • None available right now

Matilda Plush

Matilda Plush

You’d think Matilda would represent me better than Red, but I’ll argue against it. Sure, Matilda is a motherly figure who looks after the Blues, and she’s always showing her caring and nurturing sides, but I’m a little less conventional. I’m motherly but in a contemporary sense.

Matilda, the chicken, is a beautiful character, though. She has a superpower where she can lay explosive eggs. She can also calm other birds’ moods and runs the anger management class on Bird Island. Matilda is an original flock member, and you must own her.

Key Features

  • Character: Matilda
  • Flock: Angry Birds Movie and Angry Birds Movie 2
  • Size: 7″
  • Type: Plushy character head with huggable, soft polyester fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Brand: Johnny’s Toys
  • Available: Walmart

Pros

  • The Matilda plush is suitable for collectors and children
  • She represents a character so level-headed that she can even soothe the anger of emotional birds
  • The plushy is cuddly enough and safe for kids of all ages

Cons

  • The crest has a flimsy design and can break off during a wash
  • The design leaves much to desire, and the details lack too much
  • The facial expression doesn’t represent the character well

Other Matilda Plushies to Consider

Hal Plush

Hal Plush

You can’t complete your original flock collection without adding Boomerang. Hal is also known as Boomerang because he returns after being flung to the pigs in level six of the original Angry Birds game. Boomerang and Bubbles are best friends in the movies.

Boomerang has a long beak compared to other birds from the island. He also has a clumsy nature, constantly tripping over everything. Irrespective, he continues to pursue his goals, making him somewhat relentless.

Key Features

  • Character: Boomerang/Hal
  • Flock: Angry Birds Movie and Angry Birds Movie 2
  • Size: 16″ (wow!)
  • Type: Large character head plushy with soft, huggable polyester fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Brand: Commonwealth Toys
  • Available: Amazon

Pros

  • The Boomerang plushy is enormous and works well for kids who want cuddle buddies
  • The character represents great talent and relentlessness masked by deceptive clumsiness
  • It’s well-designed for durability, safe for small kids, and brightly colored

Cons

  • It’s too big for a collection and impossible to find in other sizes
  • The stitching on the front of the beak might come loose if you wash it too often
  • The beak is disproportionately too big for the face, and the plushy is only a head

Other Boomerang Plushies to Consider

  • None available right now

Lightning Bird Plush

Lightning Bird Plush

Lightning Bird is an ice bird determined to extinguish the space pigs, making him a newer character. However, three original characters inspire the space character: Jake, Jim, and Jay. Lightning Bird can become three characters while breaking the ice.

Lightning Bird’s helmet has flashes of lightning on the sides. The plushy comes as a single character, but the games show the essential elements of where the bird originates. It’s also a newer plushy with a voice box to create sound effects that resemble the game.

Key Features

  • Character: Lightning Bird
  • Flock: Space
  • Size: 16″
  • Type: Character head plushy with polyester fill and voice box
  • Sound: Yes (he talks)
  • Machine Washable: No
  • Brand: Commonwealth Toys
  • Available: Amazon

Pros

  • Lightning Bird is a collector’s dream if they want the Space Flock
  • The design is quite sturdy and colorful, and the lightning flashes are solid
  • It’s safe for kids over three

Cons

  • The character isn’t well-known to older Angry Bird generations like me
  • The design looks like a mashup of a pig and a bird
  • The soundbox makes washing it a challenge

Other Space Angry Birds Plushies to Consider (If You Can Find Them)

Firebomb Plush

Firebomb Plush

Firebomb is a supercharged version of his earlier counterpart. He’s still a lovable character with his cute face and shy demeanor, but he’s also an explosive character if he’s pushed into a corner. Bomb gets an upgrade in the space flock, and he doesn’t disappoint.

Firebomb’s superpower in Angry Birds Space is to burn anything nearby, and it’s called Heat Shock Wave. I have this guy in my collection, and he’s a squishy stuffed toy that makes you think of a big softy. Imagine a panda bear, and you’ll have the personality of Firebomb.

Key Features

  • Character: Firebomb (Bomb)
  • Flock: Space
  • Size: 16″
  • Type: Plush character head with huggable, soft polyester fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Brand: Commonwealth Toys
  • Available: Walmart

Pros

  • The plushy is terrific for kids and collectors
  • The character is undoubtedly an upgrade from the earlier version because Firebomb can control his temper a little better than Bomb could
  • It’s safe for kids over three, huggable, and has a unique design

Cons

  • The plushy has many small parts that could break if you wash it too often
  • The creator aesthetically misrepresents the character because Firebomb has a welcoming demeanor
  • It has a disproportionate beak for its body

Other Space Angry Birds Plushies to Consider

Leonard Plush

Leonard Plush

Leonard first appears to be charming and friendly, but that’s untrue. Leonard is a classic character from the original games and movies, and you have to own him as a collector. Kids also have tons of fun if they have birds and pigs to role-play the age-old battle between the two islands.

Leonard is a sly, cunning character full of surprises, and his only goal is to feed his pig minions with bird eggs. Leonard is also known as King Mudbeard, and he was the first ruler of Pig Island until his son succeeded him. King Pig, the clumsy and childish one, now rules Pig Island.

Key Features

  • Character: Leonard
  • Flock: Angry Birds Movie and Angry Birds Movie 2
  • Size: 8.6″
  • Type: Full-bodied plush with soft cotton fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Brand: Unknown
  • Available: Amazon

Pros

  • It’s a fabulous plushy for collectors and children
  • The plushy represents the character in a quirky manner and has a good design
  • It’s safe for young kids to keep as a cuddle buddy and cute stuffed friend

Cons

  • The creators misrepresent the character because Leonard doesn’t look so happy
  • The plushy isn’t proportionately accurate
  • Its nails are flimsy and break off in the wash

Other Pig Plushies to Consider

Zeta Plush

Zeta Plush

Zeta is arguably a villain and hero in Angry Bird 2. Zeta is the ruler of Eagle Island in the second movie, and she’s known for being an arrogant eagle, mocking Red and his friends for failing to stop her crazy plans. Crazy is a good word because Zeta is the definition of it.

Zeta is also the ex-wife of Mighty Eagle, the once brave eagle intended to protect the birds on the island. However, Zeta is another misunderstood character. I believe she’s a scorned woman with eccentric ideas of how she can take revenge. Fortunately, she resembles no one I know.

Key Features

  • Character: Zeta
  • Flock: Angry Birds Movie 2
  • Size: 7″
  • Type: Full-bodied plush with a soft, huggable polyester fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Brand: Commonwealth Toys
  • Available: Amazon

Pros

  • The plushy is an excellent addition for collectors and children
  • The character is controversial, and the intricate plushy design captivates her eccentricity and layered personality
  • It’s a bright plushy better suited to older kids (over three)

Cons

  • The character is controversial enough to make people love/hate her plushy
  • The design is beautiful but also delicate, and you shouldn’t wash it too often
  • The legs are flimsy and could break off after a few washes

Other Zeta Plushies to Consider

  • None available right now

Darth Vader Plush

Darth Vader Plush

Of course, Angry Birds and Star Wars had to team up to make things more exciting. I love how this bird changes the entire concept of Red being the leader of Bird Island. Red Skywalker represents the classical Red character, meaning Darth Vader is now his father.

Maybe Red needs a break from his double-sided personality where responsibility meets hotheadedness? Anyway, I’m a massive fan of both franchises, and I love the mashup. The 2012 Angry Birds Star Wars game inspired the plushies.

Key Features

  • Character: Darth Vader
  • Flock: Star Wars
  • Size: 16″
  • Type: Plush character head with polyester fill and plastic eyes
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes (follow the coming tips)
  • Brand: Commonwealth Toys
  • Available: Amazon

Pros

  • It’s a must-have if you collect Angry Birds or Star Wars plushies
  • The plushy’s design is unusual and detailed around the mouth
  • It’s a more durable design and washes more effortless than others

Cons

  • It’s not safe for small kids younger than three
  • The eyes lack detail
  • It doesn’t look like a bird

Other Plushies to Consider

Yoda Plush

Yoda Plush

How can they combine Star Wars and Angry Birds without including Yoda? The good news is they never forgot about Yoda. Admittedly, the plushy is creepy beyond words, but it’s a must-own for anyone collecting either one of the fan merchandise.

Maybe Red Skywalker can use some guidance from the Yoda plush. After all, how will he react when he learns Darth Vader is his father? How will he accept the threat to his leadership to prevent the hotheaded fires from burning? Okay, I’ll stop with the jokes now.

Key Features

  • Character: Yoda
  • Flock: Star Wars
  • Size: 16″
  • Type: Plush character head with soft, huggable polyester fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Brand: Commonwealth Toys
  • Available: Walmart

Pros

  • It’s another must-have for collectors
  • The character represents Angry Birds and Star Wars in a freakish but accurate way
  • It’s a substantial deluxe plush that suits older kids well, too

Cons

  • The plush freaks me out, no matter how I look at it
  • Putting a beak on Yoda’s face feels insulting
  • It’s enormous for a collector’s piece

Other Star Wars/Angry Birds Plushies to Consider

Princess Leia Plush

Princess Leia Plush

Admittedly, Princess Leia looks fantastic as an Angry Bird. Her face is pretty calming after seeing Yoda with a beak. She looks a lot like Stella, even having some similar personality traits. She’s also known as Princess Stella Organa in the 2012 game.

Princess Stella is the ruler of the Bird Republic (a knockoff of the Star Wars story), and she intends to destroy the Pig imperium at any cost. Her personality is as bold as the original Stella, but she’s more level-headed than her earlier counterpart.

Key Features

  • Character: Princess Leia
  • Flock: Star Wars
  • Size: 16″
  • Type: Plush character head with soft, huggable polyester fill
  • Sound: No
  • Machine Washable: Yes
  • Brand: Commonwealth Toys
  • Available: Amazon

Pros

  • It’s a tremendous plushy for kids and collectors
  • The plushy’s design is impressive, bringing the beak to the princess without scaring babies
  • It’s a safe, well-designed, and huggable plushy for kids of all ages

Cons

  • The bold pink color might be off-putting for boys
  • The eyes and beak could use more detail
  • It’s a massive plushy for collector’s, but you can opt for a different size below

Essential Washing Tips

Angry Birds plushies can be challenging to wash, and the first rule is never to submerge one with a voice or soundbox. Otherwise, these tips help to keep them clean, even if they have delicate crests and legs:

  1. Use a mesh lingerie bag to wrap your Angry Birds plushies.
  2. Add a mild fabric detergent to the machine, and choose a delicate cycle with cold water.
  3. Don’t use fabric softener to wash your plushies.
  4. Gently squash them inside a towel to remove excess water (Don’t rub them as you could break the crests).
  5. Place them in a dryer at low heat, or leave them on a towel to dry. Don’t place them in the sun or hang them from the crests.

Top Q&A

Question: Which Angry Birds Plushies Are Rare?

Answer: A few Angry Birds Plushies have become rare on Amazon and stores. The original Commonwealth Toys Mighty Eagle with no sound is near impossible to find, and there isn’t a single one for sale, not even on eBay.
Another rare plushy is the Angry Birds Hockey Bird Mascot, representing the 2012 IIHF World Championship. A seller on eBay is raking in money by selling this rare bird for nearly $300! The two birds are certainly the rarest Angry Birds plushies in 2022.

Question: Did They Cancel the Angry Birds IOS and Android Games?

Answer: Rovio Entertainment canceled the original Angry Birds games on smartphones because it was hard to keep up with the evolving technology, but they promised to return the old favorites in 2021. The original flock plushies might spawn after a game return again.

Question: How Many Angry Birds Plushies Can I Collect?

Answer: More than 70 Angry Birds plushies have existed, ranging from 4.5″ to 16″, but it’s challenging to collect them all because of the limited editions. Some Angry Birds plushies are already challenging to find, such as Mighty Eagle and Bubbles.

Angry Birds Plush Guide: Final Chirp

Angry Birds plushies are a must-have for collectors, and the ever-evolving movies, series, and games introduce kids to the classic characters, even if some of them receive an upgrade. I love challenges, and finding all the characters, especially older generations, is an adventure for me.

As a collector, it’s also priceless to find the golden nuggets once they become rare. Sure, they can cost the same as your car, but collectible plushies are a satisfying hobby. My kids have their favorite Angry Birds plushies, and my collection includes various size Reds and other characters.

I still seek Mighty Eagle, but it sustains my adventure. If you don’t have an Angry Birds plushy yet, I highly recommend starting your collection. Choose the character that matches your emotions the best, or find one that represents something you want your kid to know.

Either way, you don’t want to miss the characters that will still become rare. I suspect Stella is one character that might not always be available. The pigs are also hard to find, and you should scoop them up as you see them.
