Monday Merch Meeting: Americana, Muppets, Vacation Tees, Havaianas & More!

Haaaaaaaappy Mon-day, to you… It’s been a public holiday here today in Sydney, Australia, and I am way more relaxed than usual, which is probably a good thing as under ordinary Monday evening circumstances, I would have been particularly frustrated with the abundance of t-shirts in this week’s Disney offerings. Instead, I’m like, show me what you’ve got, Disney. And now, I shall show you.


Let’s begin.

Americana – Round Two

You knew it was coming. The second big release of Americana merch has hit those virtual shelves just in time for the summer festivities in the United States of America(na). This time we have more t-shirts than you can handle, along with a MagicBand, Havaianas flip-flops (or called thongs for us Aussies), as well as marked-down face masks.

Raiders of the Lost Ark 40th Anniversary

Marking the 40th anniversary of the Indiana Jones movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark, two t-shirts have been released in its honor. The Raiders of the Lost Ark 40th Anniversary Short Sleeve Cotton T-Shirt for Adults – Customized, $24.99, and Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark 40th Anniversary T-Shirt for Adults, $29.99, are available now.

Mickey Mouse Icon Black Lava Bead Bracelet

Subtle accessories to mix and match with your everyday attire are always at the top of my list. The Mickey Mouse Icon Black Lava Bead Bracelet, $60.99, would look fantastic with both summer and winter styles, depending on which end of the globe you reside on, to add a touch of Mickey to your OOTD.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Trinket Jar Set

What you would do with them, I don’t entirely know, but for some reason, I want them anyway. Perhaps the perfect addition to that medicine cupboard to hold bandaids and cotton buds? The Nightmare Before Christmas Trinket Jar Set, $29.99, is something many of us could all find a use for.

Minnie Mouse Card Wallet

As technology improves and my children grow, I find myself taking less and less into the parks each time we visit. The Minnie Mouse Card Wallet, $14.99, is a great way to keep your life in order in or outside the parks keeping all your essentials in one place and getting rid of the clutter.

The Reluctant Dragon Pin – 80th Anniversary – Limited Release

I have to admit I did a bit of a double-take on this one. After a ten-minute google-fest, I feel like I know a little bit of Disney history that was missing from my education. I could fill you in, but instead, I would encourage you to do your own research if, like me, you don’t immediately recognize this throwback. The Reluctant Dragon Pin – 80th Anniversary – Limited Release, 15.99, is available now.

Tinker Bell Baseball Cap for Adults – Peter Pan

Cute hats can be hard to find for adults, especially women. I think this is one area where the Disney designers for men’s and kid’s headwear have the market cornered. The Tinker Bell Baseball Cap for Adults – Peter Pan, $27.99, is adorable, and the writing on the front says it all.

Marie Short Sleeve T-Shirt for Kids – The Aristocats – Customized

Those of you who join me for the Merch Meeting often will know that virtually anything with Marie from The Aristocats will make it onto my weekly list of favs. If only this one were available in women’s sizes. Marie Short Sleeve T-Shirt for Kids – The Aristocats – Customized, $19.99

Orange Bird MagicBand Slap Bracelet

Orange Bird fans are like Figment fans; you dare not cross them or say a bad word about their deviation. For this reason, I will simply leave this here for you, quietly. Orange Bird MagicBand Slap Bracelet, $29.99

The Nightmare Before Christmas Three-Pair Earring Set

Funky earrings are a must-have when piecing together your outfit for the day. It’s a silent nod to the characters you love in a way that most of us could get away with wearing to the office or even school. The Nightmare Before Christmas Three-Pair Earring Set, $26.99

Star Wars Family Framed Wall Art

If you are a committed Star Wars family, then this next one is for you. The Star Wars Family Framed Wall Art, $36.99, is perfect for your entryway or foyer to remind you of your roots.

Minnie Mouse Statue of Liberty Light-Up Ornament

It’s a bit random, but there is something about the Minnie Mouse Statue of Liberty Light-Up Ornament, $16.99, that I just like.

Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse Bucket Ear Hats for Toddlers

Your little ones often need more shade than standard caps can provide, making these new bucket hats perfect for keeping little faces and necks in the shade.

The Muppets Apparel

Muppets fans, it’s your turn—three customizable offerings for you, including two T-shirts and a hoodie. I shall leave these for you below to play with and create your perfect look.

Giclée on Canvas – Limited Edition

Finishing off your themed room or that child’s bedroom with the right wall features can be really hard. You didn’t put all of that work in just to finish it off with a cheap-looking poster. Have a look at these new canvas pieces. All $149, and see if something there might compliment your decor.

Family Vacay T-Shirts

These might be my favorite items in this week’s Merch Meeting. In particular, the This Family is in Vacation Mode shirts. These are a great way to create a cost-effective matchy-family look and set the tone for the days to come.

This Just in From Disney Parks

If you blinked this week, you probably missed out on the new Designer Collection Minnie Mouse Ears from Karlie Kloss. The limited-release, light-up, rechargeable ears came in a special box and sold for $98. The STEM-inspired coder design was part of a tiny release that sold out in a matter of minutes.

Up Balloon Steals the Show

I want it; I want it now. I really have an issue with balloons being sold in the parks too, and I still want one.


That is going to wrap things up for this Monday, my friends. I hope you start your day with something fabulous, whether it be breakfast with the family, a moment of reflection, or just taking the time to appreciate each day as it comes. I’ll catch you on Wednesday.
