I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of the Precious Moments line of characters and figurines. I find I can’t connect with the big-eyed children. But…
Throw in a touch of Disney, and…
Precious Moments started to incorporate the big-eyed children interacting with Disney characters, and as a disneyana collector, I got sucked in!
I love the renderings. The sculpts are done very well and the subject matter is well thought out. It’s just too cute that the little girl with Sulley has Sulley slippers!
There are even some figures where the children are dressed as their favorite Disney character as well as interacting with a presumably plush friend.
Also, I found the figurine above, which features a young Rapunzel with Pascal. With this figurine, the Precious Moments style certainly works!
One of my favorite pieces is the snow globe below:
I love the rocket ship design (based on the claw game from Pizza Planet). The ‘snow’ and the music just makes it even better! These figurines are part of the Disney Showcase Collection.
We have one last piece, but it doesn’t feature the trademark big-eyed children of the Precious Moments stable. Instead, it simply has Mickey and Minnie chillin’ on the coach:
This is how Karen and I watch TV
We have been adding new pieces to our collection by purchasing at Carlton Cards when they have their ‘buy one get another half-off’ sale. Who knows what characters will be added in the future? Karen and I will be in-store to find out!
