Thumbs up Disney paint back... now at Walmart instead of Home Depot

I just got an email from Disney Consumer Products. They went with Glidden (wasn't the Home Depot line with Behr?) I wonder if they'll have Alien Green again and if this means the return of the Mickey paint chips! :

I noticed that it was gone from Home Depot a while ago and then I went to Walmart like a week ago and noticed it was there. Kind of strange I think because I would think Home Depot would generate more money for disney off paint than Walmart would. So there must have been something that went on to cause this but whatever.

Almost all paint is mixed. Most of the computers have the formula for competitors colors already stored. I know you can go to Home Depot and ask for a Benjamin Moore color by name and they'll tint Behr paint to match. Otherwise get the brochure with the color samples from Walmart and bring it to wherever you buy your paints. They can computer match the color, it should be very close.

True enough. I just wish they would have chosen a different partner.

I'd think Walmart would generate more money for Disney selling bedding and accessories then Home Depot. Are you going to paint a room with Disney colors and not coordinate with other Disney products? Do people decide they want Disney paint and go the store that sells it or do they go to a paint store and fall in love with Disney colors?

I've hear they don't but my fingers are crossed that they eventually will.

I was at Walmart so I thought I'd check out the Disney paint. As was previously reported, no Mickey head paint samples were to be found. However, they did have some cute colors, a couple of different glitter top coats, metallic colors, and colored chalkboard paint (which I LOVE). Just a little info for ya!

This makes me so happy! Although, I do have a large dislike for Walmart (which is still better than K-Mart, IMO)...

I loved collecting the little sample cards when I was younger, especially with the little Mickey heads! This past semester of college, I actually started a little mural with just regular paint cards. Even if the samples don't feature Mickey, I'll still have to go on a little trip to start my collection for the empty walls in my apartment.

For those that aren't familiar with quality paints I'd like to give a little heads up. Behr and Glidden are poor quality paints. They aren't awful, but compared to what you would get in a smaller paint store they really aren't that good. Your best bet would be to try and find a couple samples you like and then try and match them up with a quality paint like Benjamin Moore. Just my 2 cents.

Walmarts Disney paint chips are plain rectangles, but they have mini Mickey heads in the corner, and they have the Disney names printed on the front. Still nice for scrapping, but not for the Disboards heads.

Though, the Mickey and Pals Cricut cartridge will make heads quick and in any color you want.
