Well, here we are with the first year with Enesco at the helm of the Walt Disney Classics line. It certainly appears the promises made have been kept. And based on what I have to share with you today, it looks like another great year!

Many long time members have renewed their Club Kits. The Members- Only pieces for 2004 did very well, including the Witch’s Cauldron, Sir Hiss, and Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother. The Witch’s Cauldron is no longer available to the dealers but some may still have one or two on hand. New collectors joined with the Bambi and Thumper pieces. These Kits are still available through December. The Spring Event piece Jessica was a smash hit. The Fall Event piece Donald Duck was of course a big hit, with Donald in his true angry self.

The 2005 year offers some more great ones. Beginning with the Club Kit, Belle at the Fountain and the companion piece is a sheep. They will be available in December for Christmas. This would go great with the Fountain piece from last years Spring Event.

Then some of your favorite toys are back. This year being the 10th anniversary of Toy Story, Stinky Pete and Woody they would go great with the Woody’s Round-Up Record Player with Jessie and Bullseye.

There is also a special Villain’s piece on the way this quarter. From Beauty and the Beast, Gaston (in a chair sitting on a bear rug). No image is available yet. This will be a must have after how well the last Gaston did.

Finally, here is one more piece I know you will be waiting to see. It is everyone’s favorite Pixie. This piece will have in one of the most popular scenes from Peter Pan with Tink trapped in the lantern. I will share both of those images as soon as I get them.

Well the 1 st quarter releases look pretty good. I don’t know about you but I am starting to save my money now. With the 2005 year of WDCC, I see lots of happy collectors. The Magic Lives on!
