    Had an email yesterday from Disney Store UK announcing the return of the classic characters to their merchandise range. I was promised tons of Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and Pluto goodies. Was in Brighton today so popped into the Disney Store there and....

    It's all kids stuff!!!! And 95% of it was Minnie.

    If there was any grown up stuff in the shop it was at the back where I don't go because it means going near the HSM and Hannah Montana section.

    Very disappointed.

    However the G-Force guinea pig with the nunchucks on the way made me giggle. But I didn't buy one. I wanted a Mickey thing.

    Normally, I can't walk past our (not so) local Disney shop without checking for Steamboat Willie items but I did last weekend. So tired of HSM etc....I want the original characters back with a vengance and a small section for the likes of Hannah and HSM

    I want snowglobes back, and kitchen equipment etc. We should tell them that snowglobes are for life, not just for Christmas...which is the only time we find these goodies now.

    Isn't that very annoying when you have made a special journey to go there and they haven't got what you wanted after them saying they would have them in.

    The Minnie stuff is lovely, Caitlin got the lunchbox, but would have been nice to see more adult stuff - I wanted the girls baseball boots or the boys Mickey canvas shoes but they didn't go up to size humungus!

    None of the other characters though I also notice that Toy Story is back with a vengeance.

    Last year in DTD we tried to buy the Giant Mickey & Minnie plush toys for one of our bedrooms. We managed to buy Minnie but couldn't find a Mickey the same size anywhere. We evenutally found one when we got home (in the Swindon branch) and ended up having to stuff him into a suitcase of his own to take him to meet "his bride" in Florida this year - Customs at Sanford were very bemused

    Disney store isnt a patch on what it used to be. The one we have in Bath has far too much of Hannah Montana and HSM in it for my liking.
    Also mentioned to the lady serving the other day that i think its got quite expensive in there too, a decent sized plush used to be 10 and is now 15!
    I miss the big pile of toys they used to have in the middle aswell. Oh, i just miss how it used to be - proper Disney!!
