Disney is synonymous with magic anytime and anywhere, but this year brings even more magic to the brand with the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Co. To mark the occasion, Jakks Pacific is sprinkling its own version of pixie dust with the launch of a new line of Disney Tsum Tsum collectibles.
The Disney Tsum Tsum 100th Celebration Series features mystery sets of vinyl figures and accessories inspired by some of the most iconic Disney films. The name comes from the Japanese word “tsumu,” which means “to stack.” True to form, the figures are designed to stack on top of each other, making them even more collectible.
Each mystery set in the new Celebration Series comes with two Tsum Tsum figures (one medium, one small) and an accessory piece inspired by the movie from which the characters hail. For example, the Little Mermaid set comes with Ariel and Flounder Tsum Tsums that kids can stack on top of a sea rock, while the Moana set comes with Maui and Moana Tsum Tsums that kids can stack on top of a boat floating on a wave. Once kids grow their collection enough, they can intermingle the figures and accessories from different movies. The Little Mermaid, Moana, and Lilo & Stitch all take place in ocean settings so kids can have Ariel and Lilo hitch a ride on Moana’s boat.
Series 1 will feature characters from Pinocchio, Cinderella, Peter Pan, The Little Mermaid, The Jungle Book, Tangled, Finding Nemo, Frozen, Moana, and more, while Series 2 will feature characters from 101 Dalmatians, Aladdin, Nightmare Before Christmas, Toy Story, and Frozen, among others. Each series will have a total of 20 different mystery sets to collect, with 100 sets planned in total (that’s five series in all). Since Mickey Mouse is the leader of the pack, each series will feature one unique Mickey Mouse set with a special Disney 100th Celebration finish.
Each set comes with a collector’s guide that shows all 100 sets that will eventually launch in across all five series, giving fans something to look forward to. Collectors won’t know which characters they’re going to receive in each bag, but unboxing is part of the fun and searching for the special Mickey Mouse figures makes the hunt even more exciting.
While the collection is recommended for kids ages 6 and up, it’s clear that plenty of adult Disney fans will love these Disney Tsum Tsums, too. The whole family can look for their favorite Disney movie moments in the form of these tiny Tsum Tsum nuggets to collect, stack, trade, and display. Look for them in stores soon!
