Snow White 80th Anniversary Funko Pops

Funko announced in August that they would be releasing a full set of Pops to celebrate Snow White's anniversary in 2017 - the big 80!

Funko has previously released some Pops of Snow White, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen:
Evil queen number 42 - from 2012.  There was also a Grumpy in this series (number 46).  Sadly I don't have this.

Key chain version of Evil Queen

A miniature Evil Queen sold in a set with Ursula and Maleficent.  There was also a set of the evil queen and Snow and Snow and Grumpy.

One of the first in the Disney series from the Disney Store - Snow White - from 2011

The new series has all seven dwarfs plus a Grumpy variant and Dopey chase, two Snow White variants, and the Hag.  For those in the 'know'  a variant is a Pop that is available only at particular stores (Toys R Us, Books a Million, and Hot Topic in this case).  The chase is a tricky thing to land because it is randomly sent in boxes and stores don't know if they are going to get them.

I had to the witch - she is so well done!

The Hot Topic exclusive - the Snow White Diamond edition.  Very well done and I am grateful to Hot Topic's local instagram feed for posting when they arrived so I could put one on hold!

The Toys R Us exclusive - I love this so much! I haven't found her...yet.

This is the one that will drive collectors crazy!

Creating a Disney Collectables Log

If you are reading this blog, there's a good chance you are a Disney collector like me.  Over the years, I've fallen into the trap of, do I have that item?  Did I buy that one?  How did I end up with two of these?

I've tried making photo albums, but those are not easy to carry around.  I have found that using Google as a platform for logging my collection has been the best idea I've ever had!

Years ago, I had to move my entire collection into storage for some time.  Being a nervous Nelly, I decided that I needed a log of every item I was putting into storage.  I made a spread sheet of every item in each box.  I also took a picture of each item.

Fast forward ten years later, I realized I could digitize those pictures and then converted my spreadsheet to a Google Sheet.

Now I can access my files in Google Drive.  Here is a look at my collection file:

Each file contains pictures of all of the items I have.  The image has an identifying number that matches to my spreadsheet:

My Google Sheet has lots of room for improvement, but here's a peak:

The best benefit is that I can share these among all my Google accounts and can pull up my file no matter where I am (especially handy when at a collectible show sale).  I have also been able to share the file with others as I need to.  A great benefit when loved ones see something on eBay they want to get me.

Every few months I take some time to photograph new items, upload them to the correct folders, and make sure I have added details to the Google Sheet.  As of a few weeks ago, I have logged 2,149 items, so that's not too shabby!

Box Lunch Gifts

Box Lunch gifts is one of my favorite pop culture stores.  They always have such a great array of Disney items.  I went into one of the stores earlier this month and saw the best evil queen purse I've seen in awhile:

I had to go home and see what else they had on the website.  I was pleasantly surprised at all the Snow White merchandise available!

Downtown Disney Snow White Merch

I went to Downtown Disney earlier this month and found a few fun Halloween treats and some cute merchandise.
This is why I went to Downtown Disney.  This year's Disney Visa card pin is an adorable Snow White dancing pin - it actually moves!

This extra thick lanyard with the evil queen is great!

This picture is hard to see, but the Dopey is adorable!

This was my favorite find of the day - I love the blue bird necklace!  I should have asked how much it was, but then it would have come home with me.

Love this graphic!  Did not love those sleeves.

It is so wonderful to see merchandise in the concept art style, but what is with the knot on the bottom? (yes, it's part of the design)

Again, I don't understand the lacing on the side...what happened to regular t-shirts?

Love this purse!  So fabulous!

The evil queen apple is back!

A poison apple, apple...not sure about this one.  May be to literal for me.

The apple cake pop is more my speed.

Dooney & Bourke Snow White Purses have arrived

What I have been hoping for (and my wallet has been dreading) has happened!  Dooney and Bourke has released a Snow White collection!  These can be found at Disney World and at the Disney Parks App.  What do you think?  Are they worth the high price tag?

Finding Snow White at Disney's Character Outlet Store in Florida

Last June I had one of my best vacations ever on the Disney Dream.  While in Florida I took the opportunity to go to the Character Outlet located near the Disney Resort.  I was surprised at how many Snow White items I found!  While I usually refuse to leave the theme parks while I Florida, this was the perfect chance for me.  Getting a Uber ride over to the outlets from our resort was very easy.  I picked up a few treasures while we were there.  Please note that merchandise turns over very quickly, so you never know what you'll find.  For more up to date information check out the monthly outlet report on Touring Plans Blog (one of my favorite blog writers - I love the indignation at original Disney prices and strange merchandise that appears!)
