Monday Merch Meeting: Figment Ears, Kermit Loungefly, DCL Playset & More!

Hey Friends, fancy seeing you here on a Monday; it’s just like old times! I’ve got some excellent stuff to show you again this week, including some fantastic items for the kids that you might like to get early and tuck away for the holiday season. Shall we?

Madame Leota Lamp – The Haunted Mansion

My new office definitely needs one of these new Madame Leota Lamps – The Haunted Mansion, for $125. Doesn’t she look perfectly mystical when lit up in the photo below?

New Disney Munchlings Scented Plush–Baked Treats

New Munchlings are now available in fabulous scents, including Peppermint Bark, Candy Cane, and Gingerbread. I actually had the chance to smell some of these a few days back, and they are delicious.

Minnie Mouse Candy Cane Crush Cupcake Disney Munchlings Scented Plush – Baked Treats – Medium 15 3/4”, $34.99

Figment Ear Headband for Adults

Those of you who noticed the missing Figment Ear Headband for Adults, $29.99 from the more significant release a few weeks back, can rest assured that it has finally arrived. How cute would this look with the skirt from last week too?

Disney Cruise Line Ship Playset

If your family loves to vacation on Disney Cruise Line, you might like to pop this one away for the holidays and let the kids enjoy their own DCL fun at home. The Disney Cruise Line Ship Playset is $99.99 and is available now.

Kermit Loungefly Mini Backpack – The Muppets

It was only a matter of time before Loungeful took hold of Kermit for another crack at the Kermit Loungefly Mini Backpack – The Muppets, $78. He’s so cute and happy.

Mickey Mouse Groom Ear Hat

No sign of the new Bridal Ears, though the Mickey Mouse Groom Ear Hat, $27.99, has now arrived for those of you tying the knot in Disney Parks.

Kate Spade x Disney

Kate Spade is only of my favorite Disney X designers, so I was excited to see the new collection New Kate Spade x Disney Accessories, pop up. Check them out on that link for more details.

Mickey Mouse and Friends Cardboard Quick Mart

I absolutely love this for the holidays. There is so much you can do with a playset like this, as kids learn all sorts of skills when using it. The Mickey Mouse and Friends Cardboard Quick Mart is $99.99 and comes with heaps of accessories for hours of fun.

Mickey Mouse and Friends Market Accessories Play Set

Step up the Quick Mart above by adding the Mickey Mouse and Friends Market Accessories Play Set, $39.99. Before long, you’ll have your own little bodega!

Mickey Mouse Ear Hat Ring by CRISLU

I like this in theory, but I struggle to see how this design wouldn’t get in the way when, well, doing anything at all. Let me know what you think of the Mickey Mouse Ear Hat Ring by CRISLU, $150.

Briar Rose Limited Edition Doll – Sleeping Beauty – Disney Designer Collection – 11”

Some of the Disney Designer Collection is beautiful; others, like the new Briar Rose Limited Edition Doll – Sleeping Beauty – Disney Designer Collection – 11”, $129.99, just look angry and unprincess-like.

New MagicBand+ is Now Available

If you’ve taken to the new MagicBand+, you can now select from these three new options, each with a unique, limited-edition design.

Disney Model Kits

These are great ideas for stocking stuffers and gifts in general. Each kit has press-out pieces to construct either of the castles or even Space Mountain. Put the pieces together and watch them come to life right before your eyes.

The Jungle Book Dooney & Bourke Tote Bag

A colorful interpretation of The Jungle Book Dooney & Bourke Tote Bag, $328, has hit the shelves this week featuring a busier-than-usual design.

Darth Vader Tote Bag by Vera Bradley

Taking a more straightforward approach, the Darth Vader Tote Bag by Vera Bradley, $120, has more of an emphasis on the dark side with accents of red around the straps.

Meanwhile, in Disney Springs

Nothing really happened except for lots of yummy-looking food that, you guessed it, has made me hungry. So, we are going to end today’s meeting with my nighttime treat of choice, this thing:

And that, my friends, is all I have for you today. I hope your week kicks off to a fabulous start. I’ll see you again real soon.
