Barely Necessities Episode 92 – September 15th, 2022
Didn’t catch our show live? No worries! Here’s a brief recap of what we discussed plus links to those stories and items available for purchase.
We’ll start off at shopDisney with “Coco” Dooney & Bourke, the Disney Designer Collection Belle and Fantasia makeup from One/Size. Next we dive into some of the new merchandise collections that debut at D23 Expo 2022 including Loungefly exclusives, Princess Tiana, and Munchlings. For Marvel we take a look at the Groot nuiMO (he’s so cute!) and the Infinity Stones Collection dropping weekly on shopDisney. Star Wars gives us Ashley Eckstein’s Guided by the Light Collection and Funko gives us snowmen Pop! figures of Darth Vader, Boba Fett and more.
As Seen on Barely Necessities
Dooney & Bourke is recognizing the world as their familia and have launched a new collection inspired by Pixar’s Coco. Just in time for the Day of the Dead (and Halloween), this assortment of bags features musician Miguel in his Día de los Muertos look surrounded by skeleton heads—as you’d expect!
Belle is the twelfth doll to be featured in the collection and is designed by Heidi Ticehurst who’s always cherished Belle and loves the story. Instead of a twist on the yellow dress from the film, Ticehurst decided to focus on another key element for her design: the Enchanted Rose.
If your wildest imagination has you dressed as a Sorcerer’s Apprentice while overseeing an army of marching brooms, then you’re going to love the new cosmetic collection from ONE/SIZE. This fantastical and magical 6-piece series is inspired by the animated classic Fantasia.
The D23 Expo 2022 has officially wrapped up but the shopping is only beginning! Loungelfy debuted four exclusive styles at Expo and now these fashionable finds are also available online.
This year design powerhouse Color Me Courtney is bringing her unique flair—and plenty of color— to Disney with a bold and playful Princess Tiana Collection that’s perfect for any aspiring princess.
One of the fun product lines to debut during the D23 Expo 2022 is a line of snack inspired mini plush called Munchinlings. Similar to the Wishables and TsumTsum pals that fans adore, this series of cuties offers a fun play on favorite Disney treats from the parks.
What happens when you cross the adorable Disney nuiMO line with the equally cute Baby Groot? We’re about to find out! The very first Marvel nuiMO is coming soon to shopDisney and will feature the sentient tree as he appears in the Disney+ shorts series I AM GROOT.
The power of the Infinity Stones is right at your fingertips and over the next six weeks you can possess them all! Now through October 19th, shopDisney will introduce a new Infinity Stone replica (and the item that housed it) each week ending with Tony Stark’s Nano Gauntlet—complete with all six stones.
The D23 Expo brought us many new collections but one of the product lines fans were most eager for was Guided by the Light, a stunning Star Wars collection inspired by Ahsoka Tano’s journey and designed by none other than Ashley Eckstein.
Oh the weather outside is frightful…alright we still have a few months before the snow starts falling, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get into the spirit of the season! This winter brings home a delightful array of Star Wars Funko Pop! figures featuring our faves disguised as snowmen!

Have you ever wanted to own a Disney castle? While we can’t actually acquire the gorgeous icons, soon Disneyland Paris guests will be able to own a piece of the Sleeping Beauty Castle tarp! That’s right, following its refurbishment, the Resort has upcycled the temporary cover turning it into a collection of limited edition bags.
Believe it or not, but Pixar’s heartwarming film Coco is about to celebrate its 5th anniversary! Of course you can’t ignore this first major milestone and shopDisney is commemorating the occasion with new merchandise.

With their expressive faces and multiple accessoires, Jack, Sally and Oogie Boogie are here to bring the frights and delights to your display case this Halloween and beyond.
We all have a favorite Pixar film or two and with so many (26 for the time being) stories to explore you can imagine there are hundreds of merchandise collections to shop.
