Kingdom Hearts 2 Axel 13-inch Plush. The Kingdom Hearts 2 Axel Plushie measures 13-inches tall, and comes form the hit Playstation 2 game Kingdom Hearts 2. Toy Gears, the company that creates this Axel plushie has 5 out of 5 star reviews for their products. A reviewer said, "The packing of the item I purchased was perfectly intact, and the item itself undamaged from the travel. The item came well ahead of the delivery estimate. I'm very pleased with this seller."

My thoughts on this Axel plushie is only high. It has very soft textures, and everything about him is adorable. A lot of the time, Plushies with big hair tend to start to fall off. I've had mine for almost 4 years, and slept with him and what not, and his hair is still perfectly intact. He holds his two chakrams in both hands which both look very well made as well. Overall, 5 out of 5 I would say, and would recommend buying this plushie over the other ones.
