Well gawrsh! Goofy is celebrating his 90th birthday and shopDisney is commemorating the occasion with a new Collectible Key themed to the tallest member of the Fab Five (and Sensational Six)!
A long time ago, Goofy made his on screen debut as ''Dippy Dawg'' in Walt Disney's cartoon short Mickey's Revue (1932) and we’ve loved him ever since! Now that his career has reached 90 years, Disney is honoring the humorous, lanky fellow with two new pins.
It’s been 20 years since gamers first met Sora and wielded the magical Keyblade to fight the heartless and restore light to Destiny Island. Now Square Enix is honoring the milestone with a lovely selection of 20th anniversary merchandise featuring the game’s characters and of course, the iconic Keyblade.
H2O Glow After Hours returned to Typhoon Lagoon for the summer and with the return came the latest in a long-line of souvenir sipper cups. This one however, is actually pretty cool. It’s a replica of Miss Tilly, the icon or “weenie” of Typhoon Lagoon.
Looking to bring some Disney charm to your curio cabinet? shopDisney has introduced a new selection of brightly colored statues and figurines from some popular Disney designers such as Jim Shore and more.
Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Infinity Saga (Phases 1-3) can add Captain America (Infinity War) and Happy Hogan (Iron Man 3) action figures to their collection.

Now shopDisney is delivering new collectibles inspired by the original concept art for Star Wars: A New Hope —which by the way is celebrating its 45th anniversary!
Earlier this month Sobel Westex kicked off a sale on their Star Wars Home Collection that includes sheets, towels, pillows and a throw blanket that evoke the essence of the galaxy far, far away. Bekah did some shopping and reviewed her purchase, which as you can see from the title, she thinks is pretty great.
Obi-Wan Wednesdays are officially here and this week’s exciting reveals include the first action figure versions of Reva the Inquisitor aka The Third Sister.
