I’m rounding off the week with another Pandora Spring 2017 preview – today’s post brings a sneak peek at the Pandora Disney Parks Spring 2017 collection! There are some exciting new characters included in this drop, including a particularly adorable fan-favourite elephant and three of the Tokyo Disney Parks mascots, and some brand-new Mickey and Minnie beads, too, of course. :D
We previously had a full preview of the new Disney pieces coming to both concept stores and the Disney Park locations; the charms in the following sneak peek will be exclusive to Disney Parks locations. I also do not have full details yet on which pieces will be available in which countries either.
Read on for a sneak peek! :)
Pandora Disney Parks Spring 2017 Sneak Peek
Included this time around are some great new character beads: the teacup and Dumbo beads are based on classic Disney rides, while Duffy, Shellie Mae and Gelatoni are characters who represent the Tokyo Disney resorts in Japan, from what I understand. The two-tone Carousel we have seen before, but it’s had a bit of a Disney makeover with Mickey Mouse motifs detailed in two-tone.
These might not also be the official names of the beads; I’m not sure – but they do give you a good idea of what each charm represents. I wasn’t very familiar with the Tokyo mascots!
Again, the depth of the detail in the character beads really gives Pandora the room to add those trademark little touches that make their animal beads so cute – I love the Mickey Mouse silhouettes tucked into the pawprints on the Duffy and Shellie May beads!
I am a big fan of enamelwork, so this release appeals to me enormously. It has a lot of character and cute detailing, and I hope that fans of each ride/character are pleased with how they’ve been depicted here. For me, my favourite is far and away the little Dumbo dangle; one of my very earliest memories is going to Disneyland Paris with my parents and my brother, and me choosing the pink Dumbo and him choosing the orange Dumbo to ride on! I also think that I like the bear mascots (I’m not at all familiar with the characters and have had to Google them since people first mentioned them in the comments on the blog!), and will be interested to see where they end up being released in terms of countries.
What do you think of this launch? Is anything going on your wish list?
