Disney Characters Chibizu Yukiwari

Cutesy characters wedged within inner tubes don't have much in the way of practical uses but they may keep a small rodent afloat if stranded on the Sargasso Sea.

Sega's upcoming toys measure 19cm or 7.48" in diameter each and five styles are on offer as follows: Mickey in Blue/Clear inner-tube, Mickey in Red/Clear inner-tube, Marie in a Pink/Clear inner-tube, Stitch in Lt-Green/Clear inner-tube, Pooh in Aqua/Clear inner-tube. Preorders are welcome to ship in August 2007 at US$10 per figure.

Disney Characters Pop Candy

Chupa Chups are a brand of lollipop which are wrapped with a distinctive wax wrapper. Sega's Disney-branded lollipops look like Chupa Chups but feature wrappers that depict various Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, and Stitch.

Looking over the product photo, we're guessing the green Mickey lollipop tastes like a sour apple, the pink Minnie lollipop is bubblegum flavor, and the yellow Winnie the Pooh tastes of creamy banana. Five flavors will be available and preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late August 2007.

Mickey & Minnie Chibizu Beverage Holder

We've never found a need for beverage holders or sleeves of any kind but we're sure that some people swear by them. The apparent purpose of such a sleeve is temperature maintenance in that a cold drink keeps chilled and a hot drink remains piping for inordinate amounts of time. Sort of like a thermal sweater of sorts.

In keeping with today's Disney theme, Sega has started preorders for two beverage holders in the shape of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. The actual holder is a pouch that's sewn into the body of the figure which expands to hold a mug or cup securely in its confines and theoretically keep the drink at a certain temperature. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late August.

Mickey & Minnie Chibizu SJ Tissue Box

A standard cardboard box serves well as a tissue dispenser because it's convenient, simple, and practical. For those in the general population who prefer fancier tissue boxes, check out the 30cm (11.81") long Mickey & Minnie tissue boxes from Sega. Insert a batch of tissues into the box and then slip the top sheet of tissue through the slit on top. From that point hence, each and every subsequent tissue is partially ejected for easy removal.
The Mickey and Minnie figures are topped onto toboggan-shaped tissue boxes where they adopt sprawling toboggan-like postures on their elbows and knees. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late August 2007 at US$15 per tissue box.

Shining Wind Trading Collection Figure

Six characters and their weapons from the Shining Wind video game are sculpted into plastic PVC representations of themselves in Yujin's upcoming gashapon set. . The figures feature accurate clothing style reproduction and the colors are spot-on. Each toy figure measures approximately 12cm or 4.72" tall. Seven standard figures and one secret figure are randomly packaged in each factory case of 10 toys. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late July 2007 at US$60 per factory case.

Stitch Soap Ball Maker

The super-weapon known as Stitch is a destructive little beast with unimaginable power. Nowadays, Stitch just sort of cools out and relaxes after being gentrified by the lovable Lilo. While on his leisure time, we hear that Stitch also blows out a lot of "soap balls" or "soap bubbles" as they're better known in the American English vernacular.

The Stitch bubble blower measures 30cm or 11.81" tall and it sits with a little jug of soapy water. A little wand is attached to Stitch's right hand. To create bubbles, dip Stitch's right arm into the jug and then lift it up to create bubbles that waft through the air. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late August 2007 at US$19 per figure.
