A few months ago I shared a couple of "Capsule Toys", also known as Gashapon or Gacha.
Today, I'd like to share a few items from the "Sweet Dreams Gallery." These little pieces of animation art are small, just 2 1/2 x 1 3/4 inches, and come in a little plastic bag with their display easel.
First off, the Brave Little Tailor.
This features Minnie prompting Tailor Mickey to go after the giant. The year of the release is above the title, 1938. And check out the ornate frame with Mickey presenting the piece!
Next, we have Mickey's best pal, Pluto, with Dinah the Dachshund, in Pluto's Heart Throb. The year printed on the title scroll is 1931. This isn't even close! Pluto's Heart Throb, was released in 1950!
Finally, Tinker Bell from Peter Pan, from 1953.
I payed $5.84 for each of these on eBay, which included shipping. While the capsules weren't included, this sheet was. It shows the rest of the series, 12 in all, including one mystery piece.
I'm hooked on these capsule toys, and have some more to share in the future. Like Vinylmation, they are tiny collectibles that don't take up a lot of space, but have a lot of personality.
