In my post last week about new food-related Vinylmation releases, I mentioned that I was waiting for the delivery of a Kitchen Kabaret Vinylmation box set. Well, now I have it — and you get to see it first!
This set of six tasty treats retails for $99.95 at Walt Disney World and Disneyland locations. Get your own Kitchen Kabaret set here! Here are our representatives from the dearly departed “The Land” attraction, Kitchen Kabaret:
The hostess with the mostest — Bonnie Appetite.
Mustard, representing the Kitchen Krackpots band.
Rice, from the Cereal Sisters.
Broccoli, from Colander Combo and the Fiesta Fruit. Sadly, his glasses stay put.
Mr. Hamm, from the Hamm and Eggz comedy duo.
Mr. Dairy Goods, from Dairy Goods and his Stars of the Milky Way
While the figures themselves are super cool, I have say that I’m disappointed in the packaging. The box is two-sided, with three figures showing on one side and three on the other. This means that when you’re trying to both display and keep the figures mint-in-box, you have to choose only three to showcase.
I like to have full view of all my Vinylmation friends at all times (I’m crazy, don’t judge), so this is a bit of a bummer for me :-(. I’m sure the configuration maximizes some pack to ship ratio or something, but still, I wish the box had been different.
Overall, I’m pleased. I love it when Disney honors its roots, and I think the Kitchen Kabaret is enough of a cult classic that it merits the star treatment of a full set. Well done, Vinylmation overlords!
So what do you think? Did the Vinylmation treatment do justice to this classic attraction? Let us know in the comments below.
