I got a plastic red Mickey clock with floating hands with the white gloves. It stopped keeping time almost as soon as I got it home. I think one of the inner hands is stuck. But the floating white gloved hands still work.

post it notes!

A set of 4 adorable notepads that are supposed to be self-stick like post-it notes. Unfortunately they do not stick - so they fall off over everything unless you use tape. Sort of defeats the purpose of "self-stick" (and reminds me of the Seinfeld episode with George and the label maker )

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

The play Castle. Garbage.

The spinning light up Minnie's - they stopped working before we got to the car. The kids still always ask for a new one - ugh no they are junk.

Disney Polly's dolls...

We brought the prince doll pack.. It looked like you got 3 doll and a few changes of clothes..
Only to open it up and fine it was one doll with changeable head!!! The heads were so little that there was no way to get the heads on the one body..
I don't understand way they make such little pieces!!! They were lost before ever getting home..

SAVE you money and buy the new ones in the store, that have the magic clip on outfits! Much better, and less Likely to get lost..

I'm glad I read through first. This is EXACTLY what I was going to say! I thought to myself, surely someone else has purchased the ever so cute sticky notes that won't stick!! LOL! Those things stick for about a solid minute!

There are almost too many things to remember them all. Buzz lightyear blaster, buzz lightyear spinner, two monorails, a pose able woody doll... My dh and I decided that we're going to stop buying toys at wdw for awhile!

I have bought several of the little plastic pouches that hold your tickets on the end of your lanyard. Each one has ripped. I guess I overstuff them with my whole family's tickets and fast passes, and sometimes some cash. So really it's my fault. I should just buy a sturdier fabric one at home to bring with me. Maybe next time.

Agree with the post it notes that don't stick! Also agree with the charm bracelets that fall apart and shirts that shrink two sizes. I bought a pair of earrings that broke before I even put them on! My daughter saves her $$ and usually buys hair stuff or jewelry and most of it breaks before we even leave (the stores take it back, though). My son's monorail broke within a month. Geez....now that I see this written down, why do we spend our $$ on this garbage?? Oh yeah...because it brings a bit of magic home...even if it doesn't last longer than a day

I bought the same and had the same issue.

I purchased a pair of 14k gold Mickey earrings a few years ago. When one fell out, it bent so badly and was not fixable. Definitely not worth the money I paid. I also agree with others regarding how much many items shrink

Some sort of mini-digital camera themed to POTC. While it seemed to take pictures, we never knew because it would not connect with the computer to download them.

Mickey Mouse scheduler thing-y. It looked a bit like a red calculator and was supposed to help you keep up with things like Fastpass times and such. Piece of junk.

Balloons. No luck with them lasting more than a few hours.

Gemstone Mickey ring. We've bought three....the stone always falls out within a short time. My DD just loved them though. After the last one, we said, no more.
