    A Disney merchandising failure returns!

    So I aimlessly wander into Star Trader looking for new and exciting pins, only to find that possibly the worst decision Disney merchandising has made is back on the shelfs!

    Take a look if you dare:













    I thought all the Disney Parks merchandise was pulled due to the negative feedback and never to be seen again. I guess I was wrong. May The Almighty Shed have mercy on us all...

    They should have just printed "Someone went to Disney-somewhere and all I got was this lousy T-shirt" on them instead. Could they BE more generic (and ugly)?
    A signature should go here.

    Probably why that stuff went back up is because of all the Disney Park commercials on TV now.

    I finally saw one last night. Phillip and I were having dinner at BJ's so he could watch the football game and I look over and suddenly I see the scene with the little girl running into the castle and I had a feeling it seemed familiar... and then all of a sudden *BOOM!* the Disney Parks logo takes up half the screen...

    I almost had a heart attack.

    "coming soon to a Disney discount store near you!"


    Those folks in marketing have absolutely NO idea what people like. I've spoken to so many of them too... just oblivious to what works and what doesn't.

    Was it me, or did it all look like cheap knock offs? Like something you would see at 7-11 on Harbor 5 for $10.

    It ain't going away any time soon. Or maybe it will after Jay Rasulo gets canned...and THAT can't happen too soon!

    Y'all have seen the new web address...right?
