Excerpts Transcribed from Mattel ‘A Guide to Disney Collector Dolls and Toys’ (1998):

A Dream Come True
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Disney Collector Dolls

We all have a favorite Disney memory. Our first pair of Mouse Ears from Disneyland, or the first time we ever saw Walt Disney’s Cinderella. Disney has been a part of our lives, even our everyday world, for many, many years. And Walt Disney’s movies helped shape our childhood. Today, Disney movies and videos continue to offer joy and wonder to a whole new generation.

The birth of Disney licensing began when a man asked Walt Disney if he could put an image of Mickey Mouse on a school note tablet. At first, Disney resisted, but eventually agreed to a deal that netted him $300 in cash. It was October 29, 1929 and Disney licensing was on its way.

Now, some 68 years later, Disney memo­rabilia, or Disneyana as some refer to it, is one of the biggest collectible markets in the world. By 1935, a poster displayed in a grocery store proclaimed Mickey Mouse to be “the world’s finest salesman” ringing up sales to the tune of $35 million in 1934.

Having displayed a long tradition of fine quality in doll manufacturing, Mattel reached an agreement with Disney in 1996 to become the worldwide licensor for Disney Collector Dolls. With combined imagination, a new line of collector dolls has been created that is providing ground breaking brilliance in today’s collector market.

Now is the perfect time to begin your Disney Collector Doll collection.

Whether you choose a favorite character from your childhood memories or one that evokes new joey in your heart, we promise you a classic, beautiful doll that you can treasure forever.

The Great Villains Collection

An inspired doll collection starring the greatest, most evil Disney villains. Each doll is authentically re-created with an eye to detail and atmosphere. The doll’s fashion and environment are sure to evoke memories of a special scene in a favorite Disney film. Already established as the most sough-after of the Disney Collector Dolls, the two Cruella de Vil dolls bring to life the fur loving character of a real “devil” in disguise. Then from The Little Mermaid, the powerful all-reaching an all-knowing Ursula. Almost real in her perfectly sculpted face and white hair, Ursula’s brilliant presence is strikingly captured in this recreation of a classic Disney villain.

Evil Queen
4th in a series

(Video) Disney |Great Villains Collection| 101 Dalmatians ruthless in red Cruella De Vil doll review

A limited edition doll that perfectly captures the cunning beauty of the Evil Queen in Walt Disney’s classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Her purple satin gown is trimmed in white satin, with a flowing black velvet cape that has a white satin collar and white faux “fur” trim. She also wears a golden crown and shoes. The Evil Queen can be displayed holding the box that she sends the hunter into the woods with to retrieve the heart of the beautiful and innocent Snow White. The package is fully displayable and features an authentic scene from the film.

Caring for your Special Collectible

Of course, by now, it seems important to keep your collectible in a box, free from wear and tear. Maintaining the original packaging of any collectible is a must if you want to retain the highest resale value.

Keeping your collector doll beautiful:

If you choose to display your dolls out of package, you may clean the vinyl with a mild liquid dishwashing soap. Test any cleaner carefully on a part of the doll that is not visible and always use extra care cleaning the face so that the face paint goes undamaged.

Always keep your original packaging. Even if you choose to display your dolls out of package, the original box is an essential part of your overall collection.

Store your dolls away from direct sunlight. The direct sun could cause the doll’s package and fashion to fade over time.

The top shelf of your closet is not always the best spot for your doll collection. The heat from the summer may damage both the doll and the package.

Dust your doll’s face and features with a small paintbrush. Delicately sweep away any dust with the brush instead of a cloth.

The Package as Showcase

Disney collector dolls all feature uniquely beautiful packaging, designed to showcase the doll and the movie it came from. Along with an exquisitely created doll, comes a beautiful package that captures a magical scene with pop-outs that give a complete three dimensional feeling to the characters environments. Collectors will love this brilliant packaging as it allows them to both collect and showcase their dolls in pristine condition.

A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes…

Whatever you do, remember your collection is made up of magical moments, treasures of memories past and present. Whether it’s the loveliness of Cinderella, the gruff charm of the Beast, or even the decidedly evil Cruella de Vil, each one of these characters evokes enchanting Disney memories that will stay with you forever.

Excerpts Transcribed from Mattel ‘Guide to Disney Collector Dolls’ (1999):

Anything Your Heart Desires Will Come To You…
The Magic Never Ends With Disney Collector Dolls

For most of us, the magic of Walt Disney has been an integral part of our lives since childhood. Combine that magic with the joy Mattel toys have brought to children worldwide and you have the very special combination that is Disney Collector Dolls.

Walt Disney’s vision and creative genius made fairy tales come to life, dreams come true and imagination last forever. His creative force went beyond the movies, and into our lives. Mickey Mouse is a universally recognized character, as are many of Disney’s animated creations. In a language that needs no translation, Disney’s genius made us laugh and cry. Mattel’s Disney Collector Dolls capture these same feelings of nostalgia and wonder, as today’s new characters create as much excitement and anticipation as the old favorites. Begin your Disney Collector Doll collection, now and forever, and keep the magic of Disney and Mattel close to you with a doll that will truly fulfill your heart’s desire.

The Great Villains Collection

A clear favorite among Disney doll fans everywhere, the Great Villains Collection comes to a brilliant close with Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent. Authentically recreated down to the smallest detail, she even includes her fierce pet raven. The phenomenal success of the Great Villains Collection recognized the award winning Cruella doll as one of the most sough-after of all Disney Collector dolls, followed by the wickedly wonderful Ursula from The Little Mermaid and the dramatic prowess of Snow White’s Evil Queen. The Great Villains Collection triumphantly concludes with a truly inspired, truly evil Maleficent.

Last In A Series – Maleficent
Wonderfully Wicked

Last in the Great Villains Collection Maleficent looks as magnificent as she appeared forty years ago in Disney’s animated film Sleeping Beauty. Her fearsome skin tone and her long, pointed red nails and black ring evoke evil magic. Her velvety black and purple cape is wired in front, creating a swirl of wickedness around her. Maleficent’s magical staff and pet raven complete this limited edition collector doll, showcased in a stunningly designed package that seemingly engulfs her in flames.
