Tomart’s Disneyana – Issue 8

I have all 74 issues of this great magazine, most in one place, but I need to locate others. But here is issue #8:
..
This issues coverage starts out on the inside cover with merchandise from Indiana Jones Adventure in Disneyland.
.
Next it covers Sotheby’s Art of the Lion King auction. One of the things I love about this magazine, is it’s coverage of animation art auctions. I worked for a short time in an animation gallery, doing background paintings for collectors to display their cels over. In exchange, I would get credit towards animation art. I have several original sketches, drawings, and production art pieces, which I will share here eventually.
.
Next, an article about Disneykins. Disneykins are tiny little plastic figures that came packaged individually or in groups.
.
After that, information on Big Little Books.
.
Then, a 1995 Toy Fair Report on Pocahontas. I actually collected Meeko merchandise, and have several of the items pictured here.
.
.
Next up, coverage of the 1995 Disneyana Convention. At that time, I couldn’t afford to attend these events, and that is probably for the best!
.
Then there is info on U.K. Disneyana, Walt Disney Classic Collection, and buttons and pins.
.
They even had a section on Disney Store merchandise. As I was a Cast Member at the time this issue came out, this was incredible. I can now point at this page and say: ” I have that, and that, oh, I didn’t get that, but remember it coming in.”
..
Finally, on the inside back cover, theme park collectibles.
.
Did I mention I love this magazine?
