It Came from Disney!

About the Column

If Disney piled all its themed merchandise in one place, it would likely reach to infinity - and beyond. You see it everywhere: at the parks, online, in your neighbor's house. And you're tempted, sorely tempted, to make it yours: not always because you need it but because it came from Disney. For many people, that means irresistible. But fight the urge, just for a moment, until you've read what Jessica Clawson thinks about that irresistible piece of Disneyana. Chances are, she has already succumbed to the urge - and now, temporarily recovered, wants to tell you whether it was worth it.

FROM: It Came from Disney! Published Tuesdays

Vintage Mickey Mouse Bread Box Set

Most folks want more than what they've got. I'm no different. Neither is Jessica Clawson, who spends enjoyable hours on DisneyStore.com compiling wish lists of very cool items. Call them the things that MIGHT come from Disney. Here's one now!

This week, I'm doing something a bit different. Instead of presenting It Came from Disney!, I'm asking Will It Come from Disney? Because I don't own it yet...

Are you one of those people who love to surf DisneyStore.com looking for things you'd like to add to your home collection - though perhaps not today?

Well, I am!

I love to 'shop' the Disney Stores, both mortar and media, to spot new items that one day, maybe, I'll buy, or that my family might like to buy for me. (Hint? Yeah!)

The newest item on my Wish List is the Limited Edition Vintage Mickey Mouse Bread Box Set.

I saw these beauties on DisneyStore.com and thought they looked awesome! For $59.95, I'll have a red bread box with vintage Mickey and Pluto pictures, a black and chrome toaster with Mickey on the outside, and two stencils (Mickey and Minnie) that I can pop into the toaster to decorate my toastables.

The classy toaster, in particular, would look good in any kitchen. Beyond that, however, I want this toaster for a personal reason. Years ago, I had a Winnie the Pooh toaster. It broke, after much heavy usage, and I'd like nothing more than to fill that empty spot on my counter with a Mickey Toaster, especially one with stencils, because I know my picky cousins would scarf down 'Mickey and Minnie' toast even faster than I would.

The reviews from DisneyStore customers are uniformly positive, except for one person from Alaska who trashes both the breadbox ('lid does not fit') and the toaster ('bread burns at the ears').

So let's see. I've appealed to the heart-strings with my Winnie the Pooh story, I've appealed to the relatives with my cousins story, and I've appealed to everyone's desire for hassle-free shopping with this link:


I'd love to write more, but FedEx comes early and I'm sure there's something on that truck for me...
