Nobody Puts Pooh In A Corner
At Disneyland now they sell merchandise with adorable simplified character models. Big heads and tiny bodies, kind of like super-deformed anime characters except they also have tiny eyes. The Mickey one is pretty cute, but Minnie, with printed eyelashes, is strange looking and Donald, who's all fuzzy and molting-like to suggest his constant state of agitation, is funny to look at but doesn't really look like Donald.
However, the Winnie the Pooh cast is more adorable than ever. Which is not saying much, because really they're not that cute normally. But now they are. See Stephanie holding Pooh and see the wonderfully cute little Tigger on the table. There's also an Eeyore, who is not included because his cartoonish snout is just confusing in still photos, or at least the head-on shots we have of him.
