Cute Crowned Plushies!
I'd be willing to bet that some of you who keep a close eye on Tofu Cute's new products may have noticed a common theme amongst some of our newest plush. Because I certainly have. Not one, not two but three of our new plush charms feature cute AMUSE characters wearing crowns. But why? Is AMUSE suggesting that these particular plush rule over something? Does the Chocolate Brown Pometan Cupcake rule over poms & cupcakes, or only pom cupcakes? Does the silver crowned Hedgehog of the Harin Hedgehog Forest Party series rule together with the gold crowned hedgehog, in a co-operative monarchy? Does having a tiara made out of stars our flowers or strawberries indicate some sort of princely status, or is it just a cute accessory?

I'm sure you hold these questions & more, just as I do. Today we'll be tackling this complicated topic as we look at and review several new AMUSE plush and decide: Which one would make the best King or Queen?
Harin Hedgehog Forest Party Charm
The title of this series is 'forest party', which means could suggest that these hedgehogs are actually just cosplaying as a king and queen (just as some of the other AMUSE series with crowns also suggest) - but here's another idea - what if the 'party' in question is to celebrate their recent coronation - a forest party to honour the new king and queens of the forest.

But the question of whether or not these hedgehogs are really royal or not distracts us from the real question: Would they actually be suitable for the role of monarch? Does the crown suit them?

This set gives us two crown-wearing hedgehogs to examine. The first wears a golden grown atop his dark grey furry spikes. He has the classic look of a hedgehog, and his fur is fluffy and soft, as they all are. The other has light brown furry spikes with a silver crown. In the hierarchy of metals, silver tends to be of a lower value than gold, but does that make them less important than the the other crown hedgehog? I don't think so.

The expression of the silver crown hedgehog is one of surprise or embarrassment - I like to think they're just surprised at the attendance numbers of their forest party. The hedgehogs show a confidence in their expression that puts me at ease in their role as a monarch (of plush hedgehogs). They know what they're doing. Clearly, they like their subjects enough to either appear at, or host, forest parties, and the other hedgehogs seem to be having a good time in their company. Hooray!
AMUSE Kotoritai Bird Cute Dressup Charm
There's no shared monarchy in this AMUSE series, which clearly places one Kotoritai Bird above the others - the 'Whooper Swan Queen' which asserts itself with a menacing beak and its shiny, golden crown. Whilst the other birds in this series commit to a casual aesthetic with their berets, bows and witch hats (okay, that one isn't exactly casual) the 'Whooper Swan Queen' must announce her title of power to everyone else by wearing this crown. In a charm series featuring birds as cute and soft and round as this who seem to be enjoying dress up, the Whooper Swan fully commits to the role.

The other birds in this series give off a fairly relaxed vibe, but the whooper swan queen is a bit different - it exudes an energy of power, or something like that. When you're ruling over other other whooper swans which according to my research, are naturally unruly, migrate in packs of hundreds and are very noisy - it's probably a good thing that they would have a queen to keep them under control. As this is a charm series, you can use the stretchy cord on its head and take that authority with you wherever you go!
Fuwa Mofu Pometan Cupcake Keychain
The next contender for the throne comes from the Fuwa Mofu Pometan Cupcake Keychain series, which features several cute Pomeranian dogs in cupcake cups, with a variety of cupcake-style 'toppings' on their heads. They're super adorable. One of them, however, has a crown on their head. What does this mean?

The Pometan Dog characters by AMUSE have a history of wearing crown accessories - I recall in a previous AMUSE series that there was a violet coloured pom with a crown and a cheeky expression. But there's no way a Pomeranian, plush or otherwise, would make a good king. For a start, the AMUSE Pometans are very small and round and stand on four legs, which would make signing important documents a challenge. Secondly, Pomeranians are overly excitable, and can also be quite mischievous, and that's not what you want in a king or queen. Their personalities can sometimes be more suited to that of a spoiled prince.

Interestingly, pomeranians do have a connection with royalty, with the breed being popularised by Queen Victoria's ownership of one of these dogs in the 19th century. Despite this connection, I don't think AMUSE Pometans of any kind should take a royal position themselves. The crown does look cute on this plush, though.
As well as the plush charms and keychains I've just discussed on this list, the Forest Party Hedgehogs will also be available in small plush and keychain form, and the Kotoritai Dressup Bird Charms will be available in keychain and giant plush form too, so there will soon be even more types of the Hedgehog & Whooper swan king and queens for you to enjoy.

Aside from that, I couldn't find any other AMUSE plush that wear crowns that we currently have in stock, so the contenders for the best 'AMUSE king or queen' will have to stay limited for now.

I briefly considered placing other AMUSE with tiaras or flower crowns on this list, as both are technically a type of crown, but that would open up the floodgates to including too many other kinds of AMUSE on this list. Honorable mentions include the new Harin Hedgehog Dream Forest series, which features two hedgehogs with 'star crowns' or the Strawberry Party Usadama series which has rabbits with crowns made from strawberries and flowers. These are respectable attempts to make the crown look more kawaii.
What do you think of these crowned AMUSE plushies? Do you have a favourite? Do you think Pomeranians should wear crowns? Let us know your thoughts by commenting our or Instagram, Facebook or Twitter - we'll have a poll up to see who you think deserves the title of Best AMUSE King/Queen!
