My daughter, although just 6 years old, is totally old-school. She loves Charlie Chaplin, the soothing sounds of classical music, and totally has a thing for Shirley Temple. So, it may come to no surprise, to me or any one who knows her, that she would become enamored with a Disney character from generations ago. No, she doesn’t pine over Mickey, Minnie, Donald or Goofy; she is all about Oswald.
Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, for those of you not in the know, is the cartoon character that Walt Disney created before Mickey Mouse. He existed in the 1920 and 1930s, but through some big business shenanigans, Disney lost the rights to his creation. Recently, due in part by the popularity of the game Epic Mickey and the fact that the ownership of the character finally went back to Disney, Oswald has had a rebirth.
But back to my darling daughter. As soon as she laid eyes on Oswald, she was in love. We looked everywhere to find Oswald merch for her, from searching through Disney gift shops to going online. When we spotted the Disney Artists line at Target, where Oswald is very much the star, we bought everything we could in her size. But it’s not just Oswald they are paying tribute to in this unique line; they also pay homage to classic Disney characters like Dumbo and Bambi, as well as co-stars like Thumper and the Big Bad Wolf. It’s all old-school…and awesome.
