I have a soft spot for Dr. Seuss’ Horton character. In high school, I was asked to read Horton Hears a Who! and Horton Hatches the Egg to local elementary school classes as Horton, an elephant with a big, caring heart. Perhaps it was because I saw some of Horton in me, but I thoroughly enjoyed being in front of the classes acting as Horton. So, when Funko announced that Horton would be included in the Funko/ Dr. Seuss line of releases, I knew I had to add anything Horton to my collection. When I saw the Horton Dorbz XL for sale at an amazing price on Barnes & Noble’s website, I had to snatch him up. Check out my review video, and then check out more pics from the unboxing.
As a Dorbz XL, Horton is large in comparison to a normal sized Dorbz. Clocking in at roughly 6″, he towers over the normal 3″ size of any regular Dorbz.
Unlike some other Funko items with wider shaped heads, Horton is very sturdy due to his unique body sculpt with his four legs and tail. Also love how he is holding the clover, which contains the speck of dust planet that’s home to Whoville. Overall, even though I am not a big Dorbz collector, Horton is a great addition to my vinyl collection, and I will probably end up getting the rest of the Dorbz in the line.
