A few weeks ago I came across a package of adorable Disney toy characters called “Tsum Tsum”. According to Wikipedia, “Disney Tsum Tsum is the name of a range of collectible toys based on popular Disney characters.” Their name is derived from the Japanese verb tsumu meaning “to stack” because the toys are shaped like rectangles and are designed to stack on top of each other.
Since Easter is coming up, I decided to use a few of the Tsum Tsum characters to make non-food gifts for Easter baskets. How about a clear bar of soap with a Tsum Tsum character in the middle?

Package of Tsum Tsum characters
Clear Glycerin Soap Making Base 2 lb size (I used natural/organic)
Soap Mold with cavities that are at least 1.5 inches deep (mine measures 2.3″ x 2.3″ x 1.5″)
Glass Measuring Cup
- Place one Tsum Tsum character in each soap mold.
- Cut one-fourth of the soap and place it in a glass measuring cup.
- Melt in the microwave at 15-second intervals until soap is fully melted.
- Pour the melted soap into each cavity.
- If your Tsum Tsum starts to float (like one of mine did), hold it down with a toothpick until the soap starts to set.
- Tap the side of the soap mold to try to get rid of as many air bubbles in the soap as possible. I didn’t do a very good job of this and as a result, several of my soap bars have bubbles.
- Allow the soap bars to harden for at least 24 hours.

Poor Alice is surrounded by tiny air bubbles. Maybe she shouldn’t have drunk that potion. 😉
Here’s a top view:
Say hello to Baymax and Bing Bong. They’re just two friends hanging out.
Flounder feels right at home.
But Minnie is looking a bit mad. She doesn’t like all those air bubbles either.
Finally, I wrapped each bar of soap in cellophane bags I had left over from last year. I think they’ll look cute in a kid’s Easter basket. What do you think?
The unicorn figures and cards were a Target Dollar Spot find (before Valentine’s Day). I used these same unicorns in my DIY Pink Sugar Coconut Scrub project. Can you ever have too many unicorns around? I think not.
