This wonderful piece stands about 16″ tall and features Mickey and Minnie spooning on the moon! How cute is that? It was produced as part of the Mickey & Co. line of merchandise and isn’t as old as it looks. Each piece was hand crafted to appear antique, so the patina and ‘damage’ is intentional.
This Big Fig originally came with a rope so that it could be hung for display. This would complete the magical effect of Mickey and Minnie swinging on the moon!
Above you can see where I have it displayed in my home, giving some reference as to the size of the piece.
These used to be more commonly available on eBay and other seller sites but now you see them only sporadically. Prices vary but as of the date of this post expect to pay about $250.00 U.S.D. for one of your own.
However, while in Florida several years ago I did see one in a Disney liquidation store. They were asking approximately $750.00 U.S.D. at the time. It just goes to show that you can ask whatever price you want but it doesn’t mean you’re going to get it!
You can see the Disney copyright in the picture above.
FUN FACT: Do you know what spooning is? It’s defined as two people behaving in an amorous way; or to kiss and cuddle. Just Mickey and Minnie keeping it PG!
