The 11″ “Forky” character plush has poseable arms, a base, rainbow screen art on the top of the foot, and plastic, rolling “googly” eyes. The eyes are composed of three parts; a white plastic base, a clear plastic dome, and a small black plastic disc within the dome, which represents the character’s pupil.

The toy was sold at Disney stores nationwide, Disney Theme Parks, online at shopdisney.com, and through the Disney store on Amazon Marketplace from April 2019 through June 2019 for about $20.

The tracking code information is included on the sewn-in label attached to the base of the toy.
