Today, Disney Store celebrated the launch of Kidada for Disney Store, an exclusive collection with celebrity designer and Disney enthusiast, Kidada Jones. The Charming Collection is a mix of apparel, jewelry, a limited edition Vinylmation figure and Wish-a-Littles, Kidada’s design twist on Disney Princess. The Kidada for Disney Store collection is designed to inspire the dreamer in all of us.
“With this classic collection, Kidada brings a unique and whimsical vision to the beloved Disney characters,” said Jim Fielding, president of Disney Stores Worldwide. “Disney Store’s reinvention over the last two years has taken us to magical new heights and our collaboration with Kidada Jones is the first of many that will position us as a retail destination where guests will find designer collections and unexpected surprises.”
“As a kid growing up in Southern California, I was a frequent visitor to the Disneyland and developed a deep love of the magic and wonder of Disney,” said Kidada Jones. “This collection was inspired by childhood memories of Disney and the Disney Princess characters combined with my many influences from music and travels around the world.”
DisneyStore.com launched the Kidada for Disney Store online boutique DisneyStore.com/Kidada showcasing all of the tantalizing new merchandise.

Ever since DisneyStore.com began teasing the new Kidada Jones for Disney Store collection late last week, the internet has been a-buzz with the Wish-a-Littles and what magic they would bring when they are fully revealed on Wednesday, May 4. Through a little magic of our own, however, we are pleased to bring you this pre-veal of the entire Charming Collection by Kidada as well as other items from the collection including jewelry, tees and tote bags.
Some of the items have already been leaked, such as the 9″ Vinylmation figure which we now know to be limited to an edition size of just 500 pieces. Each figure also comes with a mini bow charm bracelet.
At the heart of the collection are the Wish-a-Littles, Kidada’s unique take on Disney Princesses Belle, Cinderella, Snow White and Tiana. The key items in the collection are 3 1/2″ tall figures made of resin and each contain a ‘secret’ compartment containing an enamel and gold-plated charm along with a color-coordinated 18″ poly cord necklace.
The figures, in turn, inspire additional items in the collection such as girls’ and womens’ tees, reusable totes and a white enamel Disney Couture watch which features a gold bezel surrounded by rhinestones.
In addition to the collection, each of the princesses has an inspired pendant with chain which comes in a package resembling a book with the respective princess illustrated on the cover. Opening the box reveals the pendant in a windowed box along with a small, inspiring message relating to the princess and what the pendant represents in the context of her story. Along those same lines, there is a line of charms (as well as a starter charm bracelet), each sold separately and packaged in the same way.
The Kidada for Disney Store collection debuts at Disney Store on Tuesday, May 4, 2011. It will be available exclusively online and at five Disney Store locations, including the Times Square location in New York City.
According to Melt Comics, this is a 9″ vinylmation designed by Kidada Jones for Disney store. Aside from Minnie Mouse peeking through a porthole and a portion of a porthole ‘below’ the feet, the vinylmation appears to represent something edible complete with sprinkles and heart shaped candies.
According to the site, this figure will be released exclusively at the Disney Store Times Square in New York City on May 4. Disney Store President Jim Fielding has added via twitter that the collection itself will be available online and at five Disney Store locations, one of which being Times Square. No additional information has been provided at this time.
This news comes in addition to what we have recently learned about Kidada’s ‘Wish A Littles’ collection for Disney Store.
Considered some of the most benevolent persons on this great planet, as well as being modest to levels extreme, we concede that the only forgivable reason for chopping a princess in half is to count her rings and determine her true age. That said, we couldn’t help but notice that on May 10, Disney Consumer Products is giving away a Snow White figure by Kidada (a.k.a. the Wish A Littles) and that her body is trimmer than usual as she is pictured.
So what exactly are the ‘Wish A Littles?’ Well, we’re still not entirely sure, but we do know that the worst fears of many are about to be confirmed — Disney Princesses are hollow inside. Thought at first to just be a new spin on vinyl collectible dolls (or vinylmation as some Disney-ites might call it), these Princesses were made to come apart.
Once we realized we might be on to something, we re-visited the teaser page for the ‘Wish A Little’ collection by Kidada Jones and — going frame by frame — as well as reading the Da Vinci Code three and an eighth times — we deduced that Snow White has a secret. As does Cinderella, Belle and Tiana. You may want to refrain from blinking while watching the following video because spliced into the video are individual frames that reveal that the Snow White figure contains an apple charm, Cinderella contains a pumpkin coach charm, Tiana contains an evening star charm and Belle contains what appears to be a highly inspired bell charm.
Could there be even more to the secrets behind the Wish A Littles? Tune in May 4 when they make their official debut exclusively at Disney Store and DisneyStore.com.
As for the Kidada for Disney Store collection itself, the page’s description reads:
“Based on beloved Disney characters and infused with her signature style and whimsy, Kidada has created a delightful range exclusively for Disney Store that includes clothing, jewelry, bags, watches and Vinylmation.”
In addition to the princesses named, Tinker Bell is also mentioned in the page’s keywords, suggesting she too will be part of the collection.
