A colorful new collectible series called Disney Wisdom is coming to shopDisney starting in January 2019, and you’ll love every month of special items. Each month throughout the year, a new batch of collectible items inspired by a Disney character, inspirational quote, and color arrive on shopDisney.
In January, we saw collectibles inspired by Dumbo land in the store.
February’s series was a collection inspired by “Mulan” featuring Mushu. February’s inspirational quote comes from The Emperor: “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.” The Mushu plush will reportedly cost $26.95, and other items in the “Mulan” collection are available on shopDisney while supplies last.
March’s series was “Jungle Book”-themed items featuring Baloo. “Forget about your worries and your strife,” which was sung by the easy-going Baloo in the 1967 movie was March’s inspirational quote. The “Jungle Book” collection is available on shopDisney while supplies last.
In April, we venture deep into the 100-acre wood and gain insight from Christopher Robin himself. This month’s inspirational quote is “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think”. The “Winnie the Pooh”-themed items consist of a Piglet plush, pin set, journal and mug which can be purchased on shopDisney.
On May 18, we draw wisdom from wise Grandmother Willow who reminds us that “sometimes the right path is not the easiest one”. Meeko, Pocahontas’ raccoon friend, will be this month’s special edition plush. Again, all items for this month can be purchased on shopDisney

New themed items arrive on the third Saturday of every month in 2019. As the current month’s items become available to purchase, the following month’s items will be revealed. To make it even more fun, you can display the collection’s limited edition pins with this canvas pennant featuring a quote from Walt Disney: “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”
According to INSIDER, the inspiration for the quote-based merchandise came after the success of 2018’s monthly Mickey Mouse-themed items. The first release in that collection featured a Mickey plush with Walt Disney’s quote, “I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing — that it was all started by a mouse.”
