Hallmark has had some really great Disney items over the years. Best known for their holiday ornaments, many might not realize what other delights have crept onto this retail store’s shelves.
Things like this Mickey Express Merry Miniatures train set:
I found this mini train set at a flea market for only $8 CAN. The complete set contained just these five pieces: Mickey’s Locomotive; Pluto’s Coal Car; Minnie’s Baggage Car; Donald’s Passenger Car; and Goofy’s Caboose. I found this store display at a Hallmark ornament show:
Here is the original packaging:
Walt would be proud!
Goof on a caboose on the loose!
1998 Disney/Hallmark Cards Inc.
These little rail cars range from 1 1/4″ to 1 1/2″ high to almost 2″ long, but not quite.
16 years old and still having fun! The connection between Walt and trains has been beaten to death and needs no more reiteration from me. But I think we can all agree that seeing Mickey in an engineers outfit atop an engine, just like his papa Walt, brings a wave of nostalgia to the heart!
