Yum Yums :: Reissues
"So yummy to love!"
Yum Yums were a short lived series
produced by Kenner/Hallmark in 1989-91. They were
large, colourful plush animals with sweet treats
pictured on their bellies, ears and feet. There
was also a one-off special cartoon made.
Yum Yums were reissued by a Japanese company around 2011 (licensed by Hallmark) and produced a multitude of accessories. They also introduced several new characters.

There were literally hundreds of different kinds of Yums Yums merchandise produced in Japan, from bags and clothing, to phonecases and stationary. You name it, Yum Yums were printed on it! The look of the plush Yum Yums varied very little from the original plush version, and the cartoon images printed on merchandise was based on original artwork too.
All six original Yum
Yums were reissued as plush toys, along with two new characters.
They had sparkles in the fur on their faces, sparkly noses
and were candy scented. The plush toys were produced at
various sizes from 30cm downwards. All but the largest had
keychains on their heads. Pictured below are the largest
size plush toys.
