This is a set of miniature pewter figures from Walt Disney's film, "Alice in Wonderland". This set was produced by excellent Disney artists Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily. It was sold online by Disneyshopping.com, and came with a Certificate of Authenticity. As you can see, there are 5 figures in the set.
Look at the details on these figures. They are so small, and yet so detailed! All of the characters are in fun poses, and this is one of my favorite things that I bought within the past couple of years. Pictured here are the Catepillar, Tweedle Dee and Dweedle Dum, the Cheshire Cat, and a photo of all the figures in the box they came in.
Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily are excellent are true Disneyphiles and have created some of the best Disney figures for consumers. They sculpted for the "Tiny Kingdom" series that was sold at The Disney Store, for example. These pewter figures pictured here are fun because of the details!
If anyone would like to purchase this from me, I am willing to part with this great set for $200 plus shipping.

This is a button advertising the "D23 Expo" that took place in September of 2009 at the Anaheim Convention Center. This button features the Hitchhiking Ghosts from the "Haunted Mansion" attraction at Disneyland. There were several D23 promotional buttons, but was a cool one for me to get (I got it at the D23 Studio Tour that I got in August). The D23 Expo was really cool, but I have a lot of suggestions for them if they want to make it better next year!
Anyway, I like this button. Don't you?
