I always get attached to the sweet nature of these films, and when I sat down and watched UP for the very first time, this warm feeling of love came rushing over me and I just knew this was going to be a good one.
And from that moment on, I just had to track down a Grape Soda badge, just like the one Ellie owned, so I too could wear it with pride and treasure it amongst my most fond possessions.
The search took me all over the world (via the World Wide Web) and I stumbled upon many a replica and home-made version, but it was this one that I set my heart on owning. Simply because it’s retro appeal had me right from the start. It came all the way from America, from this incredibly whimsical Etsy Shop.
I am quite so taken by this little connection to such a wonderful little film.
