I have an old Mickey Mouse Hand Puppet made by Character Novelty Company, of South Norwalk Connecticut, a Disney licensee from 1940-1947. I have been unable to find out any information about him beyound that. I was wondering if he is complete or if he is missing a hat or other items.

Good Morning all you Disney lovers! I'm still looking for info on my Sun Rubber dwarfs dated 1937 or 1938 copyright by Walt Disney. (I think 1937, but I am going to have to get some younger eyes to read them for me.) The dwarfs are solid hard rubber, molded and painted like in the original movie. Snow White was hollow and melted long ago. They were given to me when I was an infant and have been played with. I have only seen one other set--in the museum at Disney World, Florida. I have looked through books, and different research options on the internet with no luck. Surely there were more than 2 sets made!! Thanks for any input.

QUESTION:
I HAVE A BOX WITH 2 DOLLS IN IT AND THE BOX IS NEXT TO NEW WITH ONLY AN AGED LOOK AND EARLY PRINTING ON THE BOX WHICH I SENSE IS FROM THE 1940's...THE BOX SAYS WALT DISNEY'S PINOCCHIO AND THE BLUE FAIRY DOLLS..MADE BY DUTCHESS DOLL CORP.,JACKSON HEIGHTS, NY...COPYRIGHT WALT DISNEY PRODUCTIONS...INSIDE ARE 2-7 INCH DOLLS....1 PINOCCHIO DRESSED IN SHIRT, PANTS, VEST, TIE AND HAT AND NEXT TO HIM IS THE BLUE FAIRY WHICH HAS GOLD WINGS AND GOLD HEAD PIECE AND A LAVENDER GOWN (NOT BLUE AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT).....NEITHER PIECE HAS EVER BEEN REMOVED FROM THE BOX AND ARE IN MINT CONDITION AS IS THE BOX ITSELF...THERE IS NO INDICATION OF YEAR OF MFG...THE BOX COLOR IS BASICLY RED/WHITE/BLUE COLORS ON WHITE CARDBOARD AND HAS A CELLOPHANE WINDOW OVER THE DOLLS

ANSWER:
These dolls were produced between 1952 - 1954. The company specialized in selling dolls of Peter Pan and Tinker Bell (Disney's newest animated film at that time); with Pinocchio and the Blue Fairy being the less popular and likely more collectible from this company. Because of the pristine box, we'd estimate them at $95 - $150; possibly more in a good auction.

QUESTION:
I have the opportunity to purchase a 4-5 inch Dumbo resting on his ear figurine. I would like to make sure who made him before I invest in it. I have searched everywhere for info including the eBay pottery and glass discussion forum but have not been able to establish any maker.

My question to you comes from a 2005 question about a Dumbo that was asked on that board and I thought perhaps you could point me in the right direction for verification.

ANSWER:
This piece was made first in 1941 by Vernon Kilns; then by American Pottery (a newly developed division of Evan K. Shaw) from the same molds that Vernon used.

It was widely sold and remains in plentiful supply today. 10 years ago, this piece sold for $125 or more; but with today's competitive eBay environment, the piece is often available for $75 - $100.

QUESTION:
I have a Mickey Mouse Club 'Push Em Car', with little wear. It looks like an open toy chest on wheels. Bought it at a flea market last year; seller had some cool stuff.

ANSWER:
We've seen these offered for $75 - $150; though we've never seen one actually sell. It's a nice piece; but very bulky and not often collected. It's easily worth those values; but may be hard to sell even at that reasonable price.

Hi Dave I was wondering if you could give me a value on an old Disney toy that was mine from childhood. It's a light box that you trace Disney television character on. It was made by Lakeside Toys Inc. It has a 1962 copyright date and model # 0104.

ANSWER:
These often sell on eBay for $25 - $50; though the box can sometimes be worth as much as the toy.

I don't have a reply to anyone, but a question to all. Does anyone have any information about the 1937 or 1938 Sun Rubber Disney seven dwarfs? Am I the only one in the world that even knows they existed? I saw a set years ago in the museum in Disney World, FL.
Thanks

QUESTION:
HI...I have a ornate crown jeweled jewelry box that I was told came from Disneyland many, many years ago. It stands approximately 10" tall & approximately 24" diameter at the base. I would like to know if it did indeed come from Disneyland, how old it is, and what the price would be today.

ANSWER:
While it may have come from Disneyland, there is no way to be sure. It's not a licensed Disney product; and would carry no particular premium simply because it was sold at Disneyland. Keep checking other jewelry box collectors though... It might still have some collectible value if a manufacturer can be determined.

For European Disneyana... we can recommend Mr. Didier Ghez as one of the world's most knowledgeable collectors in this field.

His web site indicates his interest in Disney books, but he'll be the first to acknowledge his appreciation for European Disneyana. You might want to visit his web site and contact him directly: www.pizarro.net/didier

Thank you for the reply. I have contacted someone else who I found through Google. They had made a mention in a posting at one point about the Disney plush made by Lars, had said they were produced in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. Hopefully they can help me figure out where this little duck is from and how old it is because I've always been so curious. I know that we have had it prior to the opening of either of the two parks you mentioned. Ah, the quest continues! lol. :-)

QUESTION:
Hello everyone. I am actually not a Disney collector or anything, but I do have a Disney duck I am curious about. He's holding a blue plastic gun, wearing a green felt shirt, and has a bandana wrapped around his head with a nautical theme on it. There is a tag attached that says "Licenza Walt Disney Lars Schio Italy" all on one side, and on the other side it says "Art" under which there appears to have once been a sticker, followed by a number 8212/27 it looks like, and underneath that there is a scripted letter L.

ANSWER:
We're not familiar with this; but we'd guess that it's from one of the international Disney theme parks; possibly EuroDisney or Tokyo Disneyland. It was unlikely sold in the USA. Sorry, but we can't estimate value on this one; but we wouldn't think it's worth a great deal.
