Disney 'gear' websites??

Hi guys!

Just turning my thoughts to getting started on my Christmas shopping. The girls love Disney stuff for Xmas (of course!!) PJ's, fleecy blankets, cushions, stocking fillers etc..... Particularly Minnie, 101 dalmatians and Pluto...

Do you have any websites you purchase Dsiney stuff from that might be a bit cheaper?? Or end of line/sale items? Just thought I'd ask before I get started

Ali

I was in primark earlier and they have LOADS of Disney pajamas think they had Mickey and Minnie, Winnie the Pooh, Bambi and Thumper and 101 Dalmations. I think it was only £9 for the top and bottoms in a set or they had some seperates that you could mix and match too

Also i was in the Disney store the other day and their stuff isn't actually too expensive

Another vote for Primark here - particularly if you're looking for Disney t-shirts! Lately, they've had a big selection of different designs and I think they were £6 each. I stocked up on a few for my holiday next year! Haven't noticed the PJ's yet so will have to look out for those

H&M also have some great Disney clothes à la t-shirts and tops. They have some lovely Disney knitwear at the moment - especially a lovely burgundy bambi knitter jumper

If its little stocking fillers that you want too, then check out Home Bargains or shops like B&M bargains - they often have little Disney knick knacks. We've bought them in the past for parties.

Also check out the Butlers UK website: http://www.butlers-online.co.uk/Disn...ney,en,sc.html it has Disney homeware, but some stationary and stuff too.

And do a search on Amazon

Hope that helps somewhat!

I would ditto that, also Matalan and Asda (online) have quite a vast range. We were in the Trafford Centre Asda the other day and they had an entire themed section devoted to Disney, kind of like walking into the Disney store.

I would urge caution with the Disney Store, whilst I live going in there and obviously live all things Disney, the quality of their clothing is really not up to par at all. Has a tendency to shrink, widen, bobble etc. conversely and a bit weirdly the Disney stuff from George (pyjamas excluded) and Matalan have retained their shape / quality.

I have had to return three lunch boxes (zips broke very quickly), one set of pyjamas (shape changed following one wash) and two sets of boys swim shorts as Cars image peeled off the front from the Disney Store and we literally have never returned anything ever really to any other store. Other stuff e.g toys etc from the Disney Store the kids have loved so its horses for courses really x

eBay is always great too, lol xxx. Have fun shopping x

just came back on DME yesterday and they advertise www.disneyparks.com/merchandise
not sure if you can order from the UK. Haven't checked it out yet but did write it in my notebook to have a look at.

A bit left field here, but adidas do some really nice disney stuff.
We have bought our son so far a Cars 2 tracksuit, and a Mickey Mouse athletics one.

The latest one is really nice too
http://m.adidas.co.uk/Kid%27s-Disney...othing&start=1

But we will wait til it inevitably comes down in price.

We also got him some adidas Lightning McQueen soft trainers too

Just had my first bad experience with the Disney store today DBF ordered a Beauty and the Beast snow globe for my birthday next month because that's what I wanted and when it arrived today the snow globe bit was broken, the paint job was a not pants and there were little chips taken out of Belle's dress. Really hope the replacement isn't as bad

another vote for primark, I got a really nice Mickey and Minnie sweatshirt at the weekend. It's meant to be a pajama set but think it will come to wdw for layering purposes!

I know! I spend hours on there making wish lists. If it helps anyone, code SAVE10 gets 10% off. Not sure when it expires.
