Japanese Disney Merchandise

Here in the West Disney merchandise is everywhere, there is so much of it available that you quite often forget just how consistently present it is in stores, malls and product aisles everywhere. Disney really is amazingly good at getting its brand in front of peoples eyes. Like everywhere else, Japan also has its fair share of Disney merchandise.

One of the things that interests me the most though are the Sega produced Disney UFO Catcher prize items. For some reason Sega seem to be able to produce items that are of a higher quality than many of the items you'll find in the Disney Store. As the picture shows some of the releases are very Japan-centric but I still believe there is a market for that kind of item in the West. Those two plushes will typically sell for between $20.00 and $30.00 - at just over a foot tall that's a real live bargain right there. ;)

So for all you Disney fans (or friends of Disney fans) next time you want to get yourself something excessively cute take a few minutes to search for some Sega Disney releases, you might find something a little more unique than your average Wal-Mart offering.
