With Christmas less than a month away and Hanukkah starting on December 8, now is the time to get your gifts for your family and friends, especially the little ones. If after Black Friday and Cyber Monday you’re still at a loss for what to get your fellow Disney fans, here are a few new items available at the Disney Store that are sure to earn a smile.
Disney-Pixar’s Brave 5-Disc Set
After doing well in movie theaters this past summer, Merida and her family are all set to come to your home in this 5-disc set that includes Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, a DVD, and a digital copy. Special features include a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “Brave” and more. This set is currently going for $34.99, but other versions are also available. The 2-disc Blu-ray combo pack is now selling for $24.99 and the DVD by itself is $19.99.
Epic Mickey 2: The Power of 2
Surprisingly, this new video game for Nintendo Wii is not available through the Disney Store website. Instead, you can find it through retailers like Amazon.com, Target, and Best Buy. Here, gamers can play as Mickey or, for the first time ever, as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. In this game you can expect to see a lot more of Disney’s forgotten characters and some old Disney attractions. So far Epic Mickey 2 has gotten reviews that it truly changes depending on how you play the game. The soundtrack, for example, varies depending on which paths you take and what you choose to do. Prices may vary from store to store.
Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion
The Nintendo 3Ds version of Epic Mickey is available through the Disney Store website and has its own story line. Gamers can play as different Disney characters and battle villains at the Castle of Illusion. It is currently selling at $39.99.
Give a little princess to your little princess with one of Disney’s many dolls. Regular 12″ dolls of Disney princesses and their princes are now on sale for just $10 each. Some secondary characters like Charlotte from “The Princess and the Frog” or King Triton from “The Little Mermaid” are also available. A new favorite that has been rising in popularity is the Disney Animators Collection. This collection features each Disney princess as they would appear as toddlers. Standing at 16″ they are on sale for $20 per doll.
