What do you hang on the bathroom door in 2009?

Classic Sleepingbeauty artwork in the 2009 calender

Classic Sleepingbeauty artwork in the 2009 calender

The batch of Disney calenders for next are out let us see what Disney has to offer their fans for 2009, and if we Aladdin fans be satifised with fresh Jasmine artwork.
Like every year there’s the usual Mickey and Pooh Bear calenders then there’s Pixar strongly represendet with Wall-E, Cars and general calenders, Tink and friends are good for another 7 different calenders and then there are the stupid Disney Channel stars calenders that most people probably will ignore.

So how about that Jasmine artwork, even Jafar as part of the Disney Villian line-up will do. Sadly Disney dissapoints us Jafar is in that horrible stock art pose he’s been in for years and as for Princess Jas…
…well she gets the new hot Disneyland based outfit she’s been spotted in recently. But she’s still in the same 2 horrible poses she’s doing since forever. In fact all the Princesses are yet again in the standard poses the girls have been on practilly everything. Way to go Disney, just throw in a new dress and let the money roll in. So strike through a Princess calender wish on your Christmas list they’re not worth the money.

Disney does have 3 beautiful classic character calenders in 2009 that are a good alternative.

Cute Bambi calender

Cute Bambi calender

First a Bambi 2009 Wall Calender uses old promotional artwork. Next Disney’s Musical Moments 2009 Mini Wall Calendar uses retro posters or they might be LP artwork from oldies like Snow White, Jungle Book and Alice. Key scenes from Sleeping Beauty are in Sleeping Beauty 2009 Mini Wall Calendar.
Personally I would love to have that Bambi calender myself. Or if you want Calender.com sells a surplus of other cartoon calenders ranging from Tom & Jerry to old Hanna-Barbara toons like The Flintstones and The Jetsons personally I love the 2009 Transformers calender

What do you hang on the bathroom door in 08? Disney Princess Calendars in regular and gold

Exactly a year ago I wrote a few lines on the 2007 edition of Disney Princess Wall Calendar. It so happens I can repeat this for the 2008 edition because I just picked it up this week.

Last year I did a frantic search to get it but besides the web no regular stores carried it here in the city. And those web stores that did carry it only accepted the credit cards I don’t have, which no card at all. My best bet for Disney calendars has always been the department store V&D. I got a cute general Disney calendar there some years ago and it’s just simply fun to shop there. It’s big enough to find what I’m looking for, often CD/DVD or clothing, prices are okay and except on weekends not too busy despite it’s located in the city centre that’s swapped with tourists.
DIsney Princess Wall Calender 2008 May Jasmine

The calendar itself is made by Grupo Erik and comes in five languages English, Spanish, France, German and Portuguese. The girls are portrayed in their regular princess form except Jasmine who wears a fancy dark blue/pink outfit with veil and crown. This outfit seems to be replacing her regular movie pants and top because I’m seeing it more and more on new Princess products.

Grupo Erik has also an Enchanted Tales 2008 16 month calendar with the same poses just different backgrounds and the girls wear gold. Jasmine is again included twice as are everyone else. Not very original but if you don’t own the regular ’08 calendar the ET (i.e. Enchanted Tales) version is nice to have. I suspect only little girls would want both. Plus the agenda’s posters and other calendars Grupo Erik makes. There’s a Princess, Disney, Pixar, Ratatouille and Fairies product overview on their site you want to check it out.
