Disney Store has become a major pit stop for fans of
Cars, the high-octane, animated Disney--Pixar summer feature directed
by John Lasseter. In stores now, Disney Store introduces exclusive Cars
merchandise, including character-inspired toys, apparel and fun
accessories, with new items arriving almost every week.
Disney Store designers capitalized on the ever-growing popularity of
auto racing when creating Cars character-themed apparel. "We paid close
attention to making the fashions character-correct as well as
trend-right," says Doug Braunstein, Vice President of Trend and
Softlines Design and Art for Disney Store North America. "All of our
Cars apparel is based on authentic racing styles with bright, bold
colors, patches and details that accentuate the personalities of the
characters."The apparel assortment includes fashion tees,
woven shirts, jackets, shorts and baseball caps (SRP $7.50 - $49.50).
Guests can choose from the slick, bold stylings of Lightning McQueen,
the vintage, distressed, "auto shop" look of Tow Mater or a
metallic-printed, embroidered tee inspired by the flashy Ramone.
Kids and collectors will enjoy exclusive Disney Store Cars action
figures. Each has moving eyes, speaks three phrases and possesses a
unique moving function: Lightning McQueen does wheelies, Mater wobbles,
Ramone hops, Sally zig zags, Doc Hudson sputters and speeds and Tractor
rolls back (SRP $12.50). The Lightning McQueen remote control car is an
exact replica of the lead character featured in the film, right down to
the decals. It has moving eyes and mouth, speaks three phrases, and
does side wheelies (SRP $49.50).
"There is nothing more
inspirational than working on the Toys and Hardlines product for a
Disney--Pixar film," says David Harrison, Vice President, Product
Design - Hardlines for Disney Store North America. "Disney--Pixar's
stories and characters are so captivating, it really encourages us to
raise the bar with our design and execution.
