Today’s post wraps up my impromptu little Pandora Disney week, with a review of another much-loved face from Winnie the Pooh: the adorably anxious Piglet. This is another charm that, along with Tigger, I knew I had to have from the SS17 collections. The Pandora Disney line is one where you can still get amazingly detailed character beads, and Piglet, with his little teddy bear, shows all those cute details that Pandora have historically bestowed upon their animal beads.
I had originally promised this review on Friday, but I’d forgotten that I’d be doing a post for the Memorial Day promo, so I thought I’d give both me and you a breather. ^^ I hope you’ve enjoyed the Disney posts this week, however, and I’ll be reviewing my purchases from the Summer 2017 collection soon after this! :D
Read on for a detailed review of Piglet, and some pretty-in-pink ideas as to how you might style him. 🐷
Pandora Disney Piglet Charm Review
Piglet’s face is much more close to the actual character when you see him in person – the shadows in the stock image distort his features a little bit, but he’s very nicely done. I’m not sure where the teddy bear comes from, however, as I struggled to find any pictures of him online holding one – but it’s a very cute addition! It’s almost as nicely detailed as Piglet himself, with a fully drawn face. Two little charms for the price of one. ^^
Piglet is detailed in a brighter enamel of a different code to that of Tigger or Eeyore; it matches the Latin Love Heart from the Valentine’s 2017 collection and it’s super vibrant. This makes it a little harder to style than the other two pink Winnie the Pooh beads – it is much more likely to clash with other colours.
As far as dangles go, he hangs quite low, but he’s not too heavy. I know that a lot of people don’t really go in for the dangle charms, but you can see how the format has given the designers more freedom with his pose and proportions. You’ll also be glad to know that I haven’t had – so far – any problems with him snagging on jumpers or pulling threads. He’s relatively free of dangerous edges!
You’ve already seen this bracelet, but I thought I’d post another photo of it for good measure. ^^ After taking this picture, I did rearrange this bracelet a little so that I could fit my silver Pooh Portrait charm on it as well. I took the Scottie Dog off and swapped Pooh on. Sometimes you get so used to charms being in a particular design that it doesn’t really occur to you that you can change them! The Scottie Dog has always been on this bracelet, and it was like a slap-your-forehead moment for me when I realised that he really wasn’t crucial to this design, haha.
My next styling is also pink – the majority of the Winnie the Pooh charms have pink on them, so it makes sense that you’ll most probably be looking to do a colour scheme based around that. This is a cute little mini bracelet, featuring the Cherry Blossom and Wild Hearts muranos. The vibrant pink of the Wild Hearts picks out the enamel in the beads really nicely.
A reader was asking me in a previous review what other dangle could balance out Piglet in a Winnie the Pooh mini design – my suggestion is a butterfly charm. Pooh is often pictured chasing a butterfly, and the pink Morning Butterfly is a great one for a pink colour scheme, too.
It’s so great to see Pandora continuing with more characters from the wonderful world of Winnie the Pooh: when it comes to Disney, my preference is for the cute and quirky animals. I’d love to see them do Bambi or Lady and the Tramp or 101 Dalmatians. Piglet is very sweet indeed, and goes very nicely with the other Pooh beads they’ve done so far. He’s not as much my favourite as Tigger or Eeyore, mainly as his enamel’s a little brighter and less delicate, and I prefer the non-dangle versions of the animals overall. His face is also a little harder to see. But he remains, nevertheless, very cute indeed and a lovely addition to any Winnie the Pooh- or Disney-themed bracelet!
The Pandora Disney Piglet charm is $60 USD.
What did you think of Pandora’s take on Piglet? Would you have preferred a non-dangle version?
