It’s barely November and Christmas decorations are starting to infiltrate New York City. Most of us city dwellers avoid Times Square like the plague between now and, well, nevermind, we always avoid Times Square. So what would make me, at 9 months pregnant, want to venture down there with my two year old son?
The Disney Store is hosting a private event highlighting the Top 10 Toys & Gifts for the 2011 Holiday Season and I’ve been invited to cover the event for Chip and Co! Who’s better than me? Not only will the top gifts of the season be revealed, but guests of the event will be able to meet with a Christmas-clad Mickey and Minnie and we may even get a chance to mingle with some celebrity parents!
I’m excited to walk down the twinkling blue path (made of pixie dust of course) that winds through bright displays, check out the Buzz Lightyear super blasters, and will try not to buy the $500 life-size Hulk head in the Marvel Comics section! But most of all I’m looking forward to hearing about and sharing with you readers Disney Store’s holiday theme this year: “Share the Magic.” For every Mickey and Minnie holiday plush sold from October 31-Dec. 11, Disney Store will make a $1 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Stay tuned this Thursday, November 3rd for my live Facebook posting and Tweeting from the event as well as a follow up review of all the great things I learned and saw!
