We previously took a look at the apparel and ornaments that are available this holiday season at the Disney Parks. Here’s what didn’t fit into either of those categories, also known as “the rest of the good stuff.”
For me, the best part of the holidays is the food. I have so many wonderful memories of baking cookies with my Mom. I must not be the only one because Disney had a bunch of kitchen goods themed for the season.
The artwork celebrating the 60th anniversary of Disneyland (holiday-style) made an appearance on a serving dish as well as a darling two-piece dish towel set.
This clever mug appears to be a portly Santa Mickey but you can flip it over to use it for drinking!
If making your own sweets isn’t something you fancy, there were plenty of pre-made treats available. Many of them had label art similar to that on some of the shirts we saw in the previous post.
I must confess, I love the art style on this hot cocoa mix set.
Decor is a big part of many families’ holidays. These Mickey and Minnie nutcrackers cater to a range of tastes, from the traditionalist to the Park-enthusiast. And of course, a Jedi Mickey is thrown in there for good measure.
And what is Christmas without a tree? I spotted two mini faux trees, themed to either Mickey Mouse or the Disney Princesses. They would be the perfect size to fit on a mantel or large desk.
There were a variety of stockings available for purchase (and personalization!) as well. It looked like Disney put a lot of detail into many of the designs. The most plain were the Frozen and Toy Story ones. My favorite was definitely the Nightmare before Christmas stocking, with its skull bow and Jack-faced jingle bells.
For a child (or child at heart), one of the best parts of the holidays are the toys! Several toys, like this train set, make their rounds every year with little tweaks and fixes. They are always big sellers.
And then, there are this group of plushes which are exactly the same as last year. Adding insult to injury, their designs are uninspired and plain. What a shame.
This pair of plushes is available in both large and small sizes. Mickey and Minnie each hold a plush ornament that is themed to their traditional outfit (Minnie’s has polka dots, for instance).
These two small plushes are made in the same style as the art from the hot cocoa label. It has a really cute, retro feel.
Even more Star Wars! The Droid Factory figure has a limited run, so don’t wait if you are interested in purchasing this guy. Both toys can be found at Star Traders in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland (I presume Merchant of Venus in Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland will have it as well but I am not sure).
To keep the cheer lasting all day, why not adorn yourself in one of these festive hats or headbands? The light-up ear headband decorated with holiday lights looked like popular. The Santa cap with attached gloves (available in Mickey and Minnie styles) would be great for cooler evenings.
So, you have picked out your items and are at the register checking out. I bet you think the shopping ends there but you’d be wrong. Spend over a certain amount and you can purchase this tote for $19.95.
I hope you enjoyed our pictorial. Happy Holidays!
