New! Goofy’s Candy Company Disney Vinylmation

Two of my absolute favorite parts of Disney are Goofy’s Candy Company and collecting Vinylmations. You can imagine my utter delight when I learned that worlds have collided and there is now a Vinylmation series entirely devoted to Goofy’s Candy Company.

Take a look at the box. Even the illustrations look good enough to eat.

Once you open the wrapper, you’ll find a surprise Vinylmation Junior (these are the mini 1.5 inch size) depicting some form of [Read more…]

Vinylmations are SO TASTY!

While there have been many foodie Vinylmations in the past, this week saw the first-time introduction of a Vinylmation series dedicated to food items: the So Tasty series.

These are currently being sold at retail Disney stores and through for $11.95 each.

And besides being uber-adorable, these vinyl cuties are embedded with the scent they represent, just like the Jingle Smells series that appeared last Christmas.

So Tasty Vinylmation Set

The So Tasty set includes: a mint chip ice cream cone, frozen lemonade, buttered popcorn, grape soda, root beer, and bacon cheeseburger.

Here they are, front and back:

Grape Soda
I have to give a special shout out to the grape soda Vinyl, which smells so fabulously grape candy fake that I’m going to go order some Bottle Caps right now so I can really dive into the sensation. The grape soda also brings to mind the grape soda pin in the Pixar film “Up,” giving it an extra measure of [Read more…]

“Jingle Smells” and Other Foodie Vinylmations Available Now

There’s a feast of food-related Vinylmation available on and in Disney Store retail locations. This is a great way to do some holiday shopping for Disney foodie friends, even if you can’t make it to the parks this winter.

Smellable Holiday Vinylmations

Now available is next best thing to edible Vinylmations, smellable Vinylmations.

“Jingle Smells,” which retail for $11.95 each, are Vinylmations actually embedded with scents of the holiday season: gingerbread, marshmallow, candy cane, and chocolate.

My Jingle Smells haven’t arrived in the mail yet, but from all reports I’ve seen, these cutie patooties do actually smell like their namesakes. To add to the deliciousness quotient, the Jingle Smells are topped with a little cap that allows them to accept a hook and function as an ornament. You know what, I think I’m going to go order some more now.

Peter Pan “Never Grow Up” Vinylmation Set

And here’s the second in the “Kidada for Disney Store” series. This one, a combination 9″ and 3″ set, is called “Never Grow Up.” The larger figure features Peter Pan fighting his shadow while cavorting on a giant ice cream sundae. (I think I had [Read more…]

Disney Foodie Vinylmation Update

Disney Food for Families columnist Erin Foster is our Vinylmation guru, too! Check out these cute new food Vinylmation figures and ear hats!

We’ve covered the world of foodie Vinylmation several times in the past, from a Rice Krispie create-your-own to sushi and, of course cupcakes.

Since then, there have been some additions to the Vinyl food world. The Urban 7 series of Vinylmation figures was released in July. I couldn’t resist adding this spaghetti and meatballs figure to my buffet of food-themed Vinylmations.

Isn’t it adorable? Makes me think of [Read more…]
