The Queen of Hearts from Walt Disney's "Alice in Wonderland"

This is a Walt Disney Classic Collections sculpture of the Queen of Hearts from Walt Disney's "Alice in Wonderland", along with the King of Hearts. The Queen is playing croquet. The name of the sculpture of the Queen is "Let The Game Begin!". Both of these sculptures were retired by WDCC a few years ago. You can still find these sculptures on Ebay sometimes, but they are rare.

Disney Dollars

Do you know about Disney Dollars? They came on the scene in 1987. They are, to put it most descriptively, money created by Disney. It's currency that spends like U.S. currency, except that it's only valid for purchases at Disney's U.S. theme parks, as well as at the U.S. Disney Stores. As you can see, the Disney Dollars are so beautiful, you might just want to save it instead of spending it. In fact, there are lots of people who collect them. Every year the designs change on them, as well as the characters. I really like that Snow White $5 bill!
