Disney Catalog - Cover Art in Pins

From 2002 to 2003, the Disney Store produced a series of pins representing some of the most memorable cover illustrations from the Disney Catalog. The pins, limited to 3500 each, were sold in sets of three. An interesting feature about these guys is that they have two different backings, the regular pin-back and also an easel so they can be displayed standing up like a picture frame. Each pin measures 2" x 1.5". Printed on the back is "Disney Catalog Exclusive Pin Collection, Limited Edition of 3500."

The first two sets appeared in October of 2002. The third set in the series, the first to include Snow White artwork, was released in November.

  • The Fall 2001 catalog cover of the princess and all seven of the dwarfs.



  • A "Royal Holiday" from the Christmas 2001 catalog; Snow White, Aurora and Cinderella decorate tree.



  • One of the Ariel covers completed the set of three. Original retail price $22.50/set.

The next set in the Catalog series included two more Snow White covers. Released in April of 2003, the collection of three pins retailed for $24.50.

  • The Fall Preview 2002 pin with Aurora, Belle and Snow gathered under a tree.



  • The well-known Halloween 2002 catalog cover (and the backside).



  • A Winnie the Pooh on "cloud 9" pin completed the set.

  1. In the second picture, I was a little distracted by the garlands being a similar color to Cinderella's arm; at first glance, I thought the garland was her leg, and she was doing high can-can kicks in front of the Christmas tree!

  2. The "girls" do go a little crazy when they get together for the holidays. :)
