    Major League Baseball Properties and Disney Consumer Products today unveiled 36 different designs of MLB-themed Mickey Mouse collectible statuettes and related apparel and merchandise in celebration of the 2010 MLB All-Star Week festivities taking place July 9–13 in Anaheim, Calif. as part of a new collaboration between the organizations.  The statuettes are replicas of 7.5 foot tall, life-size statues that will be placed at key Southern California landmarks leading up to the All-Star Game on July 13. This special line of commemorative collectibles, commissioned in conjunction with MLB and Disney Consumer Products’ licensee Forever Collectibles, will be uniquely decorated with bold graphics featuring logos of each of the 30 MLB Clubs as well as an American League and a National League design.  In addition, four statuettes will feature various All-Star Game themes.  All are available in a 7.5-inch size through MLB.com beginning today and later this month through DisneyStore.com and additional retailers including MLB stadium shops, Walgreens and Dick’s Sporting Goods.  Photos of all variations are available here . The 36 life-size statues are also decorated using the same logos and designs as the statuettes.  With a height of 7.5 feet and weighing 989 pounds, these MLB-themed statues will begin to appear at landmarks throughout Southern California closer to the 2010 All-Star Game.  Exact locations will be made public at a later date. “With the All-Star Game returning to Anaheim, now is the perfect time for these two iconic American brands to team up and celebrate the premiere sporting event of the summer,” said Bob DuPuy, President & Chief Operating Officer, Major League Baseball. “These Mickey Mouse statuettes will allow fans of all 30 Clubs to share in the excitement of All-Star Summer even if they can’t make it to Anaheim for the festivities.” “Baseball and Mickey Mouse really connect families and with the All-Star Game being in our backyard this year, it made perfect sense to combine the magic of Disney with America’s favorite pastime,” said Stephen Teglas, vice president and general manager of Fashion & Home North America at Disney Consumer Products. “We look forward to delighting fans of both brands with our unique products and collectibles.” In addition to the statuettes, starting next month, fans can obtain a wide variety of merchandise and apparel featuring Major League Baseball and beloved Disney characters, including caps, t-shirts, sweatshirts, drink ware, pins, throws and beach towels.

    Walt Disney Signature, Disney’s first upscale, inspired, non-character, adult lifestyle brand and Cappellini, one of the most renowned design innovators worldwide, today unveiled five limited edition chairs at the Milan Furniture Fair in Italy. The combination of Cappellini’s reputation for innovation and the magic and inspiration of Disney has produced a series of everyday products that resemble works of art. This introduction follows the success of Walt Disney Signature’s dining installation in collaboration with Cappellini for last month’s Dining By Design DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) event in New York City. A 3-dimensional sculpting of Mickey Mouse sitting on a giant chair, previously used for the DIFFA event display, was recreated at Fuori Salone, Milano Design Village to mark today’s launch. The Mickey sculpture is made of polyurethane, measures more than three metres tall and weighs 40 kilos. “Walt Disney and Cappellini both have a shared approach to design, creativity and collaboration that turns everyday products into functional works of art,” commented Pamela Lifford, executive vice president, Home and Fashion, Disney Consumer Products. “Collaborating with a leading Italian design brand specialising in contemporary furnishings like Cappellini is another exciting step in continuing Walt Disney Signature’s philosophy on design and innovation.” “This collaboration is the premise for a joint Cappellini and Walt Disney Signature stylistic commitment that promises to become a new, interesting and exciting chapter in the history of contemporary design, combining Cappellini’s strong inclination for innovation with the magical creativity of Disney,” added Giulio Cappellini, Art Director for Cappellini. The Ribbon stool and the Fish Chair, Y’s de Luxe and Rive Droite armchairs are embellished with patterns, each one with a different image and underlying theme. The Ribbon’s new profile blends Cappellini design with the outline of Disney’s most famous character, Mickey Mouse; Y’s de Luxe and Rive Droite reflect and multiply the same image in striking processed fabrics; the Fish Chair’s shape is inspired by nature found in many Disney films like Bambi and produced in recycled material. Products will be available to the public in late Spring 2010.
