Vintage Walt Disney & Disneyland Collectibles

in reply to saturdaystoys
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. I just loved this toy as a child. Thank you for any information.

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.

Just curious as to who this duck is, how old it is, and whatever other info anyone might have. Thank you!

Hopefully this picture will work:

QUESTION:
I was wondering if anyone had any idea of the value of a Disney (Gund) Danny the black lamb purse? I was told it was purchased the first year Disneyland opened and is a character from the movie (So Dear To My Heart).

ANSWER:
Unfortunately, the Disney Studio has all but abandoned the promotion of this wonderful Disney gem. The characters are largely forgotten now, dramatically reducing their potential resale value. Even so, we'd estimate this piece as selling on eBay for approx. $25 - $50; possibly more on a good day.

QUESTION:
Thank You so much for your information on the signed Pinocchio book. I have had it for a long time. I have another question for you. Where would be the best place for me to try to sell it to get that kind of money for it?

ANSWER:
Keep in mind that it must be authenticated first. There are so many mistaken Disney signatures on eBay that we can't advise enough caution. The eBay market is soft for most Disneyana right now... The glut of merchandise from Disneyland's 50th Anniversary has left most collectors with a deluge of unused collectibles. However, the vintage collectibles do retain the highest percentage of their potential value. You can try eBay at a fixed price... or any of the major auction houses (at 35% commission or more!) would be interested in your item. A nice Disney piece in any auction is a prize! It's unlikely that you'll find any sellers paying those prices though unles they happen to be searching for that particular piece. Expect dealers to offer 35% - 50% of retail prices...

QUESTION:
I am trying to find out what the value of a 1939 Walt Disney's Version of PINOCCHIO Hardbook would be. It was also signed by Walt Disney. The book is in very good condition. Hope someone can give me an idea. Thanks!!

ANSWER:
The book would normally sell for $25 - $75; but with Walt's signature authenticated, it would sell for $1,500 - $2,500; possibly more if other animators had also signed in 1939 / 1940 as well.

Thanks so much for your information! I don't have possession of the Small World Figures yet, so couldn't post a photo.
The owner was pretty excited when I told her I would sell them on ebay. Her neighbor had offered her $20 for all twelve. This will be a real help to her. Your knowledge is amazing!

QUESTION:
I have had this figurine since the 60's and think it could be Disney since I visited Disneyland often as a child. There are no markings of any kind that I can find. It stands about 2 1/2" tall.

ANSWER:
There is a faint resemblence to the squirrels in Disney's animated feature, Sleeping Beauty. It's a possibility that it came from Disneyland during that period. We aren't familiar with the maker, but will post more information should we come across any definitive reference.
