What An Amazing Find We Made

Recently we started cleaning out some things from many years ago that I had found.  In these items I found a old Mickey Mouse Christmas Ladder.  This ladder goes next to the Christmas Tree, and has lights, and moving parts.  I realized when we found it that it would take some serious amount of work to make this item work correctly.  I was going to throw it away, but my wife decided that the two of us should take a little time and try to make the necessary repairs.  After a few days we completed the repairs that we saw needed to be made.  Now the item is good as new.  The item won’t be sold by me, but I have seen this item go for some good money.  Thanks dear for advising me to keep it.

After we finished with that we continued going through the rest of the things that I had been collecting.  We found a very old 33 record, and book.  While these were nice back in the day the times have changed, and everything is audiobook, or other digital means.  If I had a usb turntable it may have swayed my decision to heave this item, but I am not going to go out and spend money to be able to use something that has absolutelly very little value at this point in time.

Character Clothing That Disney Makes

Back when Disney had a really well setup backlot you got to see how lots of things were done. The wardrobe department had a section setup that displayed some costumes from some of the most recent movies. Some of the costumes were well designed. Some of the costumes were things that I can’t imagine you could find at any stores that custom make fur coats for women. The fur from 101 Dalmations is just hideous looking. I am glad that my wife isn’t into fur coats. I can only imagine what she would come home with.

Stationary Of Almost Any Type

When you are looking to make that special occassion a Disney special occassion it isn’t a hard thing to do anymore.  If you search around you can find almost every type of gift available with Disney characters on them.  This also stands true with cards.  You can find birthday, graduation, get well, and baby shower invitations with Disney characters on them.

Disney cards are great if you can get the right card with the right character.  You still have to know how to shop for cards.

Duffy Mickeys Bear Makes His Debut

Disney News

On October 14, 2010 at both the Epcot at Walt Disney World and Disney California Adventure park, our newest character, Duffy the Disney Bear will make his much anticipated debut. But who’s Duffy you might ask? He’s Mickey’s very own teddy bear….made with love by Minnie herself.

Duffy the Disney Bear

You see, awhile ago, Mickey was about to set sail on an adventure to visit friends around the world. Minnie made a special gift to keep Mickey company and she presented it to Mickey in a duffle bag. Mickey, delighted with his gift, pulled out the gift, a very special bear, and named him Duffy. Mickey and Duffy embarked on many special voyages and Duffy got to meet all of Mickey’s friends. Each time they returned home, Mickey and Duffy would share their stories and photos with Minnie. While on their travels, Duffy and Mickey landed at Tokyo Disney Sea where they have been meeting and greeting fans for the past few years.

Duffy is not just your typical stuffed bear – he’s Mickey’s bear and he resembles his owner. Duffy’s face is shaped like Mickey’s, he has Mickey heads on his paws, and he has a very unique birthmark on his hip. There is no question who he belongs to.

We are very excited to welcome Duffy here in October to join our character family.

Duffy the Disney Bear Costumes

Not only will guests get to meet Duffy and have their picture taken with him, but we will launch Duffy’s full line of costumes and souvenirs like key chains, magnets, zip pouches and even pre-dressed Duffys that will launch for special holidays like Christmas and Easter and occasions such as birthdays and graduations. The launch will also consist of some special treats like his crispy treat, chocolatey cake, moulded dessert cup, menu placemat with activities and coming later, Duffy’s very own moulded popcorn bucket. In addition, Epcot’s Kidcot mask program will be changing to a unique Duffy that Guests can take from country to country to color, decorate, and receive country specific Duffy stamps.

Duffy will be located at a newly created venue inside Epcot across from the Mexico boat ramp and at Disney California Adventure park on Paradise Pier.

I can’t wait for you to meet Duffy. He’s so loveable and huggable and I can’t wait to hear where you will take YOUR Duffy!!!!

Characters Seem Perfect

My wife, and daughter are always noticing how perfect the characters in Disney look.  For the most part they are right.  It seems that every single character has a perfect complexion.  No pimples, or wrinkles.  My wife wants to know what wrinkle cream they are using because she wants to look that good when she gets older.  My little one enjoys seeing these characters because they always look the same.

Is it creams, or is it “Disney” magic?
