Whew! It has been a great week for merchants, but a really bad week for my bank account. Well, my imaginary bank account, because I can’t actually purchase any of the items that are featured this week.
On Monday, Coach launched a line of Minnie Mouse handbags, coin purses and bag tags. They are stunning with their adorable dots and Minnie ears. But holy budget Batman, the cheapest item was $95, which was a bag tag. Aren’t those free at the airport? I must be the only one with budget constraints, because the entire site was sold out by Monday afternoon.
Now the kitchen can join the bandwagon, as Le Creuset has launched a Mickey Mouse Dutch Oven. It is bright red, with Mickey Mouse featured all around it and on the handle. I am not much of a cook, but even my humble oven would love a dash of red Mickey Mouse….until I saw the price tag. I don’t know how much the Dutch cook, but my entire stove did not cost as much as this Dutch Oven. I am not even sure what you make with a Dutch Oven, but I won’t be making it at my house.
Maybe in my dream, I will sit on my Ethan Allen Mickey Mouse chair, I will eat a home cooked meal from my Mickey Mouse Dutch Oven and happily swing my Minnie Coach purse. But for now, I will admire them from a distance.
What Disney merchandise do you admire?
