If there was one thing I was determined to purchase on our last trip to Disney a few weeks ago it was the 9" Disney Vinylation Holiday 1 Series Turkey. This little guy was hard to find as he is a Limited Edition of 400 and I'm sure with Thanksgiving coming up people had the same idea as I did.
Disney vinylmations, created for Walt Disney World and Disneyland, have been the hottest thing in collecting since we first saw the popular 3" size last year. The smaller size are not as hard to find or limited in edition as the 9" vinylmations. This was the first one in this size that I immediately liked and thought would make a great holiday decoration and a collectible at the same time.
I love the holidays and what could be better than a collectible vinyl figurine that I could never break if it was dropped? I also love Disney so I was heading to every shop until I found this elusive Mickey dressed as a turkey!

**This piece is imported, 9" high, and limited to an edition of 400
**Check out the colored turkey feather tails on the back!!
As you can see from my pictures I have made my Mickey "turkey" the centerpiece of my dining room table. I added autumn leaves, some small ceramic gourds and pumpkins and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Mickey "turkey" is just the right size for a centerpiece and made of vinyl so I never worry that something might happen to it.
There was one little surprise which my daughter had to point out to me. Have any of you caught it in the pictures?? Mickey "turkey" has two left arms!!! Imagine my surprise when she had to point that out to me. So, does this make my piece more valuable as an oddity in a limited edition? I'll let you know if I find out as I've sent out a few emails to Disney.
