If you're an avid viewer of ABC's Shark Tank, you may recall an episode from a few years back when Shark Robert Herjavec, Founder & CEO of Herjavec Group made a deal with a little company called Happy Feet. The maker of plush character slippers had been around since the late 90s, but it was that 2014 deal that really took things in a new direction. Now, a new collaboration between Happy Feet and Disney has been revealed, with Happy Feet set to produce a robust line of plush slippers and proprietary footwear for Disney and Disney•Pixar brands, which includes Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Nightmare Before Christmas, Winnie the Pooh, Disney Princess, FrozenToy Story 4, and many more. This new lineup of over 30 hand-crafted styles joins previous collaborations including a Marvel line. Each pair of Happy Feet is created using unique fabrics, soft plush, and detailed embroidery to bring fan-favorite characters to life. Check out a preview below...

Mickey Mouse is timeless, and as the iconic mouse prepares to celebrate his 90th birthday this November, a fantastic array of new products and collectibles keep rolling out. Funko has been rolling out a ton of items created in collaboration with the team at Disney Consumer Products, and one of the latest reveals is an exclusive with my friends at GameStop (affiliate). The Gamer Mickey Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure will hit stores on October 13th, presenting the main mouse in a familiar form for anyone who's ever spent some time playing console games online. With his backward baseball cap, gaming headset and controller in-hand, he's ready to rock! So what would Mickey be playing... Kingdom Hearts, perhaps?

The 90th Anniversary of Mickey Mouse is a big deal for Disney fans, and that means a lot of cool new merch. Some of it's already been featured here, but other items continue to roll out, such as a new lineup of products from Funko, including an assortment of their signature Pop! Vinyl figures. My friends over at Entertainment Earth (an affiliate) are taking pre-orders for a bunch of the new items including Pop Pencils, Pocket Pop! Keychains and Mini Vinyl Blind Box Figures, but it's the five Pop! Vinyls that will likely have collectors scrambling. Apprentice Mickey, Conductor Mickey, Brave Little Tailor Mickey and Firefighter Mickey are all there, and you can't celebrate such a milestone without throwing it back to where it all began with Steamboat Willie Mickey

Oh, disposable income, how I miss thee...

The celebration to honor of the 90th anniversary of Mickey Mouse is about to kick into high gear! Disney today announced that Mickey: The True Original Exhibition, an interactive art exhibit, will open in New York this November. To begin the 90-day countdown, new brand and product collaborations spanning fashion, food, consumer electronics, toys, accessories and more are now available worldwide - many of which I previewed behind closed doors back in February at the 115th North American International Toy Fair (see those in another article). Check out a video preview of the exhibit below, along with all the details on what to expect!

There's long been a strange relationship between Halloween and Christmas, perhaps the fact that two of the year's biggest holidays arrive at the end of a month, at the end of the year with just a month bridging the gap between the two. While Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas might be the most famous example, this year Mickey Mouse is getting in on the action with a new DVD collection, Mickey Mouse: Merry & Scary. Featuring the fantastic retro-styled Mickey Mouse cartoons from Disney Channel, families can get into the Halloween spirit as Mickey, Donald, and Goofy swap hair-raising Halloween stories. Then fast forward a couple months to Donald’s first Christmas festivities with friends! Check out a preview below...
