For the past 86 years, Mickey Mouse and the Walt Disney Company have been putting a smile on the faces of children and adults alike. From Mickey’s first appearance in “Steamboat Willie” to the first Disney princess, Snow White, Walt Disney’s success in the 1920s and 30s led to the creation of a wide array of collectable merchandise. Figurines, houseware, children’s toys and more were sold in department stores around the country beginning in the 1930s. Called Disneyana among collectors, collectibles are related to Disney films, theme parks and the Mickey Mouse Club.
While some collectors are only interested in vintage Disneyana – products made from the release of “Steamboat Willie” up to the year 1968 – many have expanded their collections to include contemporary collectibles from their favorite Disney movies.
Disney pins are one of the most popular items among collectors, with over 60,000 created and traded over the years. Disney figurines are another favorite and some of the rarest figurines have been sold for thousands of dollars.
Whether your collection contains a vast array of Disney memorabilia or pieces related to a certain character or film, it could be worth a lot more than you think! From the Tinker Bell figurine on your bookshelf to the Mickey Mouse tea kettle boxed away in the attic, who knows what your Disneyana may be worth? We recommend having a professional appraise your collection.
