Bill Peet's storyboards for Dumbo

VINYLMATION POPCORN SERIES
I love these kind of Vinylmations because you can collect them and show them off at the same time without the need of taking them out of their package :) Plus the box design as a popcorn box is so pretty it would be a shame to open it!
FOR ALL THE POPCORN LOVERS (X)
Personally, I simply cannot have enough popcorn. i LOVE it. If you have the same addiction I do, or just really like it, you won’t be able to resist it now. For a limited time only, this summer (as long as there is stock), you’ll find the adorable Dumbo popcorn buckets in Fantasyland at Disneyland park and Magic Kingdom Park (in WDW). The R2-D2 buckets are in Tomorrowland at Disneyland park and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, are a cool souvenir for Star Wars fans!
Did you get to attend the Disney Dreamers Everywhere “Step into a Disney Story" event? If not you would have stepped into the circus with Ringmaster Mickey, Dumbo, and friends, from the 1994 series!
Imagine that! A Dumbo appearance, not something you get to see quite often.
