As Seen on Barely Necessities
Dooney & Bourke has cooked up a new collection of bags inspired by Remy Ratatouille Adventure and fans of the fashion brand (and the attraction!) can scoop up their favorites on shopDisney.
Mickey’s best pal Goofy is bringing his charming wit to shopDisney as part of the beloved collection of nuiMO plush. Joining a wide assortment of characters, Goofy helps to *almost* complete the Sensational Six (still waiting on Pluto). But he’s not the only new offering. A variety of playful and dressy summer fashions have made their debut this week too!
shopDisney is continuing their series of adorable Disney VHS-inspired collectibles with five new films and characters. Celebrate the animated classics we love with this fun assortment of plush and pins that come in clever packaging designed to look like Disney VHS boxes.
Could your jewelry collection use a bit more Disney magic? Good news, BaubleBar has just debuted a charming new style in time for Mother’s Day (May 8th) and it’s part of their limited time doorbuster event!
Build-A-Bear is the latest company to join in Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration and they’re bringing the magic with an online exclusive Mickey Mouse bundle. Of course Minnie Mouse is here too and both characters are the perfect way to give kids the “I’m going to Disney World” moment.
The calendar says it’s spring, but it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas at your local Hallmark store. Hallmark is getting a jump on holiday shopping by releasing its 2022 Dream Book filled with a variety of keepsakes and collectibles. Once again Hallmark does not disappoint fans when it comes to Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars.
Guests can get their hands on another popcorn bucket at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT at Walt Disney World that is sure to be sought after, shaped like the new favorite way to get around the Resort, the Disney Skyliner.
The multiverse can be madness and it sounds like Doctor Strange might have opened up a whole world of weirdness that he’s not prepared for! Fortunately for us Marvel fans (and merchandise gurus) that means there’s a massive new selection of items for us to shop, purchase and collect—all themed to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
“This is madness!” Yes, yes it is, but that’s part of the fun of being a Star Wars fan right? We have a lot to look forward to in May, the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+, Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, but for now we’re focused on May the 4th better known as Star Wars Day. What are we hyped about this year? Take a look!
