2008 Snow White's Garden Collection - Statues

The statues are the pièce de résistance of the Disney Store 2008 Snow White's Garden Collection. Made of resin, the series includes Snow, the Seven Dwarfs, and three animal friends.

The princess weighs approximately 7 pounds and measures 20" high.

She stands next to a "AA" battery for size comparison.

Snow came boxed with a rabbit, chipmunk, and squirrel--all around 4" high.

Original packaging.

Placed side-by-side, the figures make a nice feature. The Dwarfs measure approximately 10"-12" high. The series includes three solar-powered pieces: Doc's lantern, Dopey's diamond, and the bug on Sneezy's nose.

All of the statues are pictured on the back of the box for the birdhouse (previous post). The Dwarfs were sold in sets of two: Sleepy and Doc, Bashful and Sneezy, Happy and Dopey. Grumpy went solo along with a mine car planter (10.5" high x 13" long x 9" deep).

The statues don't often come up for auction online. Yet we do get a good look here at the entire group in these photos from Robin Knight via Collectors Quest.

In 2010, the set was seen in a yard on Noble Street in Brooklyn. (Happy must have been off playing somewhere.)

When the statues were first in production, Disney Store designer Steve Thompson snapped a pic of these Doc figures in the factory awaiting their final paint. For more info on the Garden Collection, visit Steve's tumblr.
