Favorite Finds: Disney Valentine Treats at Target

During a recent pass through Target, I was please to see that much like last year, they’ve got a nice selection of Disney-branded treats fill your Valentine’s stocking. (Wait, that’s not a thing, is it?)

Many of the items feature retro-style Mickey and Minnie illustrations. They remind me a bit of the “Get A Horse” film short that runs before the theatrical showings of Frozen.

My Target had an aisle end-cap with a Disney theme, but I found Disney items scattered throughout the Valentine candy section, not just on the end-cap.


The items included a plush Mickey, holding a chocolate heart lollipop.

Disney and Star Wars Valentine’s Day Treats at Target

I made my bi-monthly trek to Target and encountered a staggering amount and variety of Disney-themed Valentine merchandise. Not surprisingly, a fair amount of Mickey and princess goodies graced the shelves. Very surprisingly, the Mickey and princess treats were far outnumbered by Star Wars Valentine candy. Apparently residents of a galaxy far, far away have quite the sweet tooth. Who knew?

Here a photo tour of what I found in the seasonal Valentine shop:

Star Wars Valentine’s Day Goodies

Goblet mugs filled with Star Wars conversation hearts. Chewie needs me, I know he does.

R2 and Darth heart-shaped boxes, filled with conversation hearts.

Take a close look at the back of the R2 heart box and you’ll see that the “conversations” appear to be somewhat Star Wars related.

The ones I can make out say, “Mine will U B,” (like Yoda texting?) and “Luv Machine.” Machine! Get it! I need to find out who makes this stuff and steal their job because it is awesome beyond belief.

New Disney Tableware at Target — For Fans of All Ages!

Last month, Target had a display of adorable Mickey and Friends Holiday kitchenware by Zak designs.

They are back again this month with fun new designs that can be used for everyday! What I like most about these is that they’re some of the first Disney-themed kitchenware that’s perfect for Disney fans of all ages. With the fun, sketch-like appearance of the print, this would be just as appropriate for an adult get-together as it would be for a kids’ party.

Prices range from $2.49 for a cereal bowl and $9.99 for a Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse shaped serving bowl. Let’s take a look at this cute way to bring Disney into your kitchen all year round!

Disney Character Plates

Spend every mealtime with your favorite friends! Choose from Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, or Winnie the Pooh plates. They are only $2.99 each, and are available in a six-pack from Target.com.

Mickey and Minnie both have two styles to choose from. Here are the Mickey and Minnie color dinner plates. They have a little touch of pink or red, depending on who you buy!
