While in Caleeforneeuh (that was my Governator impersonation), of course I had to visit the Disneyland and Caleeforneeuh Adventure Theme Parks.
While there, we happened upon a new Disney merchandising gimmick entitled… Vinylmation.
Not to be confused with the Divinyls and "touching one's self"...
I should clarify this… it was I that was unfamiliar with the products. My mother had already known about them and happened to purchase two earlier this year. They were the display image on her phone, and I had no idea what they were until finding these at the park. Mystery solved.
(SIDENOTE: It should also be known that my entire family is very Disney-fied. So much to the point that my brother knows – and swears by this fact – that the best gummy candies in the world are found in Disney theme parks. He feels the same about their chocolate-covered pretzels, too.)
(SIDENOTE ADDENDUM: I’d have to agree about the gummy candy. My brother thinks it’s because they use sugar from beets.)
Anyzip-a-dee-doo-dah, upon spying these Vinylmations, I immediately thought of these:
These are Ye Olde English Dunnies (I don't know if I should have pluralized it).
Kidrobot makes (or distributes) these painted vinyl rabbits, each called a Dunny (like I said, I don’t know if I can pluralize it).
Did The House of The Mouse rip it off?
Is it a Coinkydink or a Coinkydonk?
No, I really want to know.
Actually, I probably don’t care.
The only reason I know about Kidrobot is because of these:
Yes. These were sold by Taco Bell.
The conspiracy about the BellHedz can be read here. Or you can read what (little) I had to say about them here.
