I didn't plan this vintage collection. I do love Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Actually Minnie the most. I have been to Disney World and Disney Land. I am actually planning a trip with my BFF this fall for our birthdays. Two senior citizens........ She is the serious Disney person. She recently moved two hours from Orlando and has a season pass.
Okay, back to the subject. I was at a garage sale and saw the first Mickey on a table. I asked about it and she it was her daughters'. She said her daughter was 40. I thought I couldn't leave him on the table and end his career like that. I picked up the night light at a barn sale and it still works. Then another small Mickey. (He would be probably 30 years old) The little figurines are from when I took our youngest to Disney World 21 years ago as well as the large Mickey. And tada, the new Mickey......the rubber faced one, I just got from the French Hen Sale. I did finally figure out how to turn my pictures but forgot to turn this when downloaded so .....sorry. I picked him up and put him down. I talked to Linda about him. She could tell that I was really interested. It's not the kind of thing she has in her sales. I brought him home with me and cleaned him up. He is filled with sawdust. He has a voice box and a place where there used to be a pull string. I researched him on the net and he used to talk. I don't know if all of them were a mistake but the ones I saw were. They said, "I am Donald Duck." Does anyone know if you can rig it to talk again? There is am imprint on the back of his neck . He was born in 1974 and has the #10. The one on the net is #18. So I don't think there are alot of them. I don't think he is really valuable and he has been really loved, but he is cute, don't you think. Some early Mickeys can look a little mean. So there my folks,
