Poodle

This pink pooch made the cut. In my opinion, it looks a little odd on this Jr mold, but it has been well received.

Penguin

I like the choice to have him looking up so his beak uses the ear.

Indian Girl

One of the female dolls in the attraction.

Girl Doll

Frog

Looks good on the Jr with the eyes in the ears.

Boy Doll

Queen Chess Piece

A black and white figure, the Queen spins around on a chess board with the King toward the beginning of the ride. Will we see the King? Could he be on the back??

Cactus


Next to the Leopard (already done brilliantly in Park 4), the musical Cactus is one of my favorite characters in the attraction. Glad to see him a part of this set. – Nick
Masked Girl

This is another one I was hoping to see after refreshing my memory with last weekends boat trip. The masked girl is in a hula skirt and is dancing around a masked boy playing a drum.

Smiling Sun

The big smiling sun. If they were not going all Kids and Animals, this one had to be in there. It brightens up any trip around the World.

Tiger

I really like all the animals in It’s a Small World. This tiger Jr is great A lot of character packed into a 1.5″ piece of vinyl.

Girl

This girl was our first glimpse at this series when Disney Artist Thomas Scott tweeted it one morning.

Hippo

Including so many animals really brings up the enjoyment level of this set for me. Great detail for a Jr. Will it have a bird on the head?

  • I haven’t collected but a few Jrs, but this may change my mind. The detail is awesome relative to past Jrs. Since I won’t be collecting the NEW mold 3″ vinyls, I have to have a Disney fix.

    I would rather collect these SW Jrs than buy ANY 3″ Haunted Mansion, which is my fav ride at Disney, vinyls on the NEW mold.

  • (= Animals that I were hoping for look to be in the set, such as poodle, penguin and frog! (Pink figure at top right, Black figure on the left near cactus, and the green spotted figure next to the poodle.

  • I really like the two chasers and a couple of the juniors but, all in all, not as excited with these as I thought I would be!

  • I love the Juniors…but I agree with Carol!

    That new mold has got to go! It’s like something that fell into Roger Rabbit’s dip…all the Mickey features melted away!
