American Baby’s Baby Booty: The Disney Store Turns 25
We’ve got several huge Disney fans here in our offices. I’m definitely one of them. Mostly, I love Disney World itself. But when I can’t go down to the parks, I get a lot of joy out of visiting a Disney Store. There’s a big one here in New York City, right in Times Square, where I like to bring my college roommate Tami. She collects Tigger stuff. I was also there a lot (more than I want to admit) when my daughter, Grace, was in full princess mode, and when my son, Joe, thought he had to have every Cars character. I’m serious, the Disney Store has WAY better princess dresses and a lot more Cars figures than any regular big-box store you’ll visit. Does that sound geeky? So be it. You can’t accuse me of having not done my research.
The Magic Kingdom in Orlando just turned 40 in October, and now The Disney Store is turning 25. To help them celebrate, you have until the end of the day on the store’s birthday, Wednesday March 28th, to leave a comment here and be registered to win $265.95 worth of Disney Store merch.
Be warned: There’s no baby stuff. (But check out the baby line here, I love the grows-with-baby bodysuits.) This giveaway does include plenty for Disneyphiles who appreciate anniversary-labeled gear. It includes T-shirts for Mom, Dad, Sister and Brother; two collectible statues (one worth $99.50 and one worth $44.50); Mickey plush and Sorcerer Mickey Vinylmation. (Never heard of Vinylmation? It’s…a Disney thing. See a bunch here.) And a lot more stuff.
Leave a comment! Tell me if your baby has a favorite Disney character yet, or if your nursery is Disneyfied. We hear that The Lion King has now taken over as a favorite nursery theme, even beating out longtime number-one Disney nursery theme Pooh. You can read the full giveaway rules here. Goody luck!
