Someone call Jumba and Pleakley, because Experiment 626 has been on the loose for 20 years! Ohana means family, and we certainly haven’t left behind or forgotten our favorite “cute and fluffy” alien. Lucky for us, we won’t be the only ones celebrating!
While we break out our favorite records and voodoo dolls in celebration of 626 Day on Sunday, June 26, shopDisney is encouraging families of all types to share their Ohana on social media with photos and videos showcasing what makes your family unique, using the hashtags #ShareYourOhana and #shopDisney. You can also add 626 Day stickers on your Instagram stories and use the 626 Day Stitch selfie lens on Snapchat to add some chaotic fun to your snaps!
Ready for even more fun? In honor of the 20th anniversary of “Lilo & Stitch,” Disney has also released a slew of new items. So, pick up some peanut butter (for Pudge, he controls the weather), and get comfortable, because we’re sharing our favorite releases below!
First up is a special edition collectible key, featuring Lilo playing the ukulele for Stitch as he enjoys a coconut beverage. Not only will it brighten up any collector’s display case, but it also comes in a commemorative 20th Anniversary window display box.
If you’re on the hunt for a new cuddle-able plush, look no further than this unique 20th Anniversary plush duo of best friends Lilo and Stitch sharing a coconut drink.
Looking for a relaxing night-in this 626 Day? This 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle will help you stitch together Lilo and Stitch’s fun and happy memories.
A collection is truly not complete without a colorful Loungefly backpack to bring on all your adventures. And this time, Stitch is coming along for the ride!
You can still have Stitch on hand if you’re not packing as much with this perfectly-sized Loungefly wristlet. It looks and acts like a tiny backpack, featuring the little monster in various poses across the print. And if you still haven’t had your fill of Stitch, just add a matching Loungefly wallet!
Whether you’re celebrating this 626 Day with a shopping spree, a Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride or a pizza night-in rewatching “Lilo & Stitch” on Disney+, we’re excited to celebrate together.
