I have good news for those who have been looking for merchandise (like they were looking for Perry); there are several new “Phineas and Ferb” items arriving at Disney Parks in the coming months.
I recently spoke with Rachel Phelps, product developer and softlines champion for “Phineas and Ferb,” about some of these items.
“’Phineas and Ferb’ has become such a hit, and we know fans of the show are looking for merchandise when visiting Disney Parks,” explained Rachel. “As the softlines champion, I work with the various product developers in the softlines division to gather information about new items. I’m currently working on new T-shirts for kids that will be arriving in the next two months. Yet they are just some of many new items coming from a variety of categories.”
One thing I noticed is the number of Agent P items currently in development. He is featured on many things including shirts for ladies and men (coming in early August); an individual Disney pin and a foam novelty hat (both arriving in November); and even a water bottle. Back in April, I shared artwork for a new Disney Racer featuring this “semi-aquatic, egg-laying mammal of action.” Cody Hampton, associate product developer for Toys, shared with me the first sample of the toy for this article (pictured above). The Disney Racer will arrive in late fall this year. After seeing all of the Agent P merchandise, I couldn’t resist channeling my inner secret agent.
As a secret agent, there is one mission I know I will be completing on Aug. 5. That is the day the new original movie – “Phineas and Ferb Across the 2nd Dimension” will debut on Disney Channel. I invite you to visit the World of Disney locations in California and Florida now through Aug. 5 as we are distributing an 11”x17” poster like the one pictured above (of course, all quantities available while supplies last).
