One of the kids pieced together this collection of Disney Tsum Tsum trading pins that I found when digging out some of our Disney stuff. You have 'Disney Parks stuff', don't you? As for these pins....I don't think Tsum Tsums are 'a thing' any more, are they? I never really *got* them - they were stackable - that was the appeal. But, they're mostly hamster-looking Disney characters. Not for me, but that's ok. Same with Funko Pops. Not drawn to them. These Tsum Tsums *do* have cute faces, though. This collection of pins will join some other Tsum Tsum pins on our big boards in the garage . There are a few interesting ones in this group - Obi Won from Star Wars, Baloo from Jungle Book and the pair of birds that are from an Adventureland Booster set. Juan the Barker Bird from the outside pre-show at the Tiki Room is pretty awesome. And, so is one of the Showgirl Birds - the cockatoos who come down from the ceiling during "Let's All

I thought we'd see a lot of these Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary "Fab 50" statues . But, due to some unforeseen circumstances, I only took a single photo of *just* one of the golden (EARidescent is what they're calling them, I think) character statues that is inside of the Magic Kingdom. Luckily, it is a guy who's big in our house - Pooh Bear. And, it is a double feature that has the big guy (Winnie the Pooh) giving a nice cuddle to his pal Piglet. Guess we'll have to go back before the 50th Anniversary Celebration is over. I know this is a minor thing, but it bothers me that there aren't REALLY 50 statues like this one for the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World - the Vacation Kingdom. There are *ONLY* 36 statues . A bunch of them are two-fers like this Pooh Bear/Piglet one above. I know that costs are important, but feels like a little bit of the bean counters winning out.
Since my trip to the Tokyo Disney Resort, I've posted a bunch of times showing some of the highlights and items that I brought back home including this pin marking the 35th Anniversary Celebration of the resort and the latest versions of the two park maps and the resort-specific bandaids - which I love. But none of the things that I brought home top this: the fleece Winnie the Pooh Bear blanket or cape or shawl with a hood. My middle child has a snuggle pal of Pooh Bear that she adores and after seeing this, I couldn't come home without it. I mean...come on, right? Just 'adorbies', as she says. Nat took this photo and I couldn't help but share it here on the blog. I found this product photo on this ebay listing that shows how it lays out: Those dots are snaps that bring it together in the front. I think they technically list it as a 'wearable blanket', but I'd rather call it a cape. They had a bunch of characters like Mickey/M
Another post about a pin that I found in my office closet is up for today. And the reason for posting this one, like the Easter Egg Star Wars ones is because this pin is part of a set that I've already posted about. Tigger, here, on a circle is a part of the set that includes this Pooh Bear pin that I posted in April of this year . This one, was certainly, traded-for by the Bird - our Pooh Bear SuperFan. This is the fourth Pooh Bear-related Disney pin that I've posted on the blog over the years. The other three are: Most recently was this circle Winnie the Pooh outline one A safety pin Pooh Bear one This cross-stitch Winnie the Pooh one that is part of a set of four
On a recent trip to the V acation Kingdom , the Bird traded for this pretty great Pooh Bear pin. It is a good-sized circle with just the silhouette of Pooh on it. I've posted this other 'safety-pin' Winnie the Pooh pin before on the blog . The Bird has quite a good Pooh Bear collection on her board that this one will go.
The Bird picked up this pair of 'safety pin' pins featuring Sully from the Monsters Inc/University movies and her favorite: Pooh Bear. (Well...Ariel might be her favorite, but she's a princess, so that's different in her mind!). These appear to have been originally marketed to Hong Kong Disney Land so between the ratty enamel on these and that post on the Disney Pins Blog , I'm guessing that these are scrappers. Doesn't make them any more fun to the girls, but they're still scrappers .
Late in September, I posted a few photos of a special Lionel/Disney Dumbo boxcar that I picked up for one of the kids this year and just this week I received another Disney pre-ordered boxcar. This time it is the 50th Anniversary of Winnie the Pooh in O-Gauge boxcar form. And just like with the Dumbo car, this Pooh Bear car comes in a pretty nice "Disney Railroad" box. Took pics of the front, a close-up of the photo of the car on the back of the box and the product listing on the side label that you can see below. As I mentioned in the Dumbo car post, I wasn't quite sure who that one was destined for (amongst my kids and nephews), but this one? The Pooh Bear one? That's for the one and only Pooh Bear lover in our family: The Bird. She sleeps with a Pooh Bear every night! He's her favorite. Well...Ariel might be her true favorite, but Pooh Bear has been there through it all! Have to say that I'm a sucker for Disney/Lionel crossovers. There
Another weekend, another stop at a few garage sales. And...another vintage book added to the collection here on the blog . This one is a Golden Book titled "Walt Disney's Winnie-the-Pooh and the Honey Patch". It has a 1980 date printed on the inside and with Pooh Bear being The Bird's favorite (or all time!) and him being generally a big deal in our house, I couldn't pass this one up. This will make for some good bedtime reading together!
The Babe picked out this set of 'Cross Stitch Booster' pins down at the Magic Kingdom earlier this year because she thought they were 'Minecraft' pins. It is a nice set that she wore on her lanyard for most of the trip. For those of you who are uninitiated (or just don't care), there's Mickey the Mouse, Dumbo, Pooh Bear and Stitch. They each have 2 pinbacks on each of them. The Pooh Bear one is the biggest and the best one, imho. We've started to put some of the girls pins on a corkboard in their room, but since we're not settled, that is just a stopgap measure. But, even though it is just temporary, these pins are prominent on that board.
We couldn't pass up this 'Winnie the Pooh for President' glass when we saw it. I thought it was too much for something silly like this (I think they were asking like $5) so I put it down after admiring it, but..when you put all the pieces together, it almost seems like this glass was destined for our family. Nat said we *had* to buy it. It is Disney (of course) and is marked with 'Walt Disney Productions' - which this page tells us that it could be from a VERY wide range of 1939 to 1986 when they changed to 'The Walt Disney Company '. So...why buy it? Let's count the reasons: Pooh bear? Check. The Bird's favorite guy in the world. She sleeps with a Pooh Bear everynight. Political reference? Check. I'm a sucker for political kitsch stuff. And...it was sold through Sears? And has a Sears mark? Check. The Moran's have a deep Sears connection. This guy now is ours and as you can see from the top photo is
