New “Emperor’s New Groove” Character Connection Mystery Sets and “Newsies” Anniversary Pins Arrive at Walt Disney World
One of our favorite shopping spots over at Disney Springs is the friendly little Pin Traders store. This fun, circular hut is full of everything our little pin trading hearts love best, so we always have to be sure to stop over there each time we visit the Springs to check out what’s new.
After all, a new day means new pins!
In fact, there were two new pin sets available in-store today, and we can’t wait to show you our findings.
The first set we found is this boxed, mystery pin collection, inspired by The Emperor’s New Groove.
If you haven’t seen these “Character Connection” pin collections before, each box contains a mystery pin shaped like a puzzle piece. As you collect the set, you’ll find that each pin fits together like a jigsaw!
We don’t see too much merchandise inspired by The Emperor’s New Groove, so this pin set is a great find if you’re a fan of this awesome movie!
In fact, the second pin we spotted is also inspired by a different, under-represented franchise…
I must say, I got very excited when I saw this one. It was recently announced that the stage adaptation of the movie is set to arrive in London’s West End later this year, so I’m definitely appreciating this Newsies attention at the moment!
In fact, Newsies is currently celebrating the 30th anniversary of the movie, which hit theaters back in April 1992. This pin beautifully commemorates the occasion, with a bunch of newsies, headed by Jack Kelly, touting “papes” with the headline “NEWSIES 30TH Anniversary!”
It’s so cute, and makes a great keepsake for any fan of the movie.
As always, make sure to stay tuned to MickeyBlog for all the latest pin news and more. My current favorite is this adorable Easter pin, which is very relevant for this week!
