Dwarfs Hand Puppets and Plush Dolls (50th Anniversary - 1987)

Back in 1987, these dwarf hand puppets were sold at the theme parks as indicated by a label inside each one that reads, "Disneyland/Walt Disney World".

There were plush dolls too. Unlike the hand puppets, these have feet! Each doll measures approximately 8" in height (hat adds a couple more). Made in Korea.

The tags on these guys are nearly identical to those found on the hand puppets above except that these were sold at Sears. Retail price: $9.99 (USD).



And for those customers who bought the Snow White Commemorative Passport, they also received a coupon redeemable at Sears for a free dwarf (with the purchase of two others).

  1. Aw, Bashful and Dopey translate into plush so well! :-)

  2. Which is actually quite amazing considering plush dolls generally don't look all that much like their animated selves.

  3. I love these! I got the puppets through some sort of mail-away offer during the 1987 Snow White release (I know where Dopey is, but the other Dwarfs are Missing In Action).

  4. I don't see them on ebay very often, but they do show up now and again if you're looking to find Dopey some friends. :)
