    we bid on a collection of nemo chatacters including bruce the shark which was about the size of a mini van a couple years ago-- I didn't get them. We wanted to put them out by our pool. they went for about 3k. they also needed a little work. Dumbo would be really cool!

    I just love the fact that it's mounted on wheels. Wonder if they put their kids/grandkids in that thing and pushed them around the house?

    Naw, Disney periodically sells some stuff to super collectors instead of crushing everything. They have sold attraction ride cars, a section of the original monorail red but mostly it is small trinkets like curtains, lamps, furniture and periodically some out of date CM uniforms.

    ---> it didn't sell.

    My wife wants to make a Dumbo-themed nursery for our upcoming little one and I keep telling her I bet I could convert a Dumbo car into a really cool crib. She keeps saying some nonsense about it being too expensive.

    I thought that was a good idea too. Don't know about how safe it would be though:/

    Simple motor and off center shaft and it could rock itself. I like it. I wonder if you could take a picture print it onto a transparency and then project it on a block of foam. If you could on your next trip to disney take a top, bottom, side and back pictures of Dumbo you should be able to carve the foam and then make a fiberglass mold... It is a major undertaking but if you are artistic it may be do-able.
