Today we stopped by Great Movie Finds, the merchandise location near the exit of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, and found several new toys and pieces of kids’ clothing. Let’s take a look.
Kids Mickey Mouse Longsleeve T-Shirt — $31.99
This red long-sleeved t-shirt features Mickey Mouse. On the front, Mickey seems alarmed as he points and exclaims “Whoooa!”
Down each sleeve of the shirt, Mickey can be seen in different poses and expressions.
Kids Goofy Hooded Sweatshirt — $39.99
This grey hooded sweatshirt showcases Goofy, as he sings and dances. Goofy is wearing a green hat and yellow vest while green and yellow musical notes surround him as well as the sleeves of the sweatshirt.
Kids Pluto Tank Top — $19.99
This white tank top for kids features Pluto. He looks perplexed, with one eyebrow raised, one ear raised, and his hands crossed.
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway Train Whistle Toy — $14.99
Both sides of this whistle feature “Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway” as well as the ride’s main characters, Mickey and Minnie.
At the bottom of the whistle, there is a plastic handle.
Kids can blow through the plastic yellow piece at the end to emulate the train’s whistle sound. This toy will help to bring the sounds of the steam engine’s whistle to life, with a little imagination.
This toy set includes a Roadster, remote control, Mickey and Minnie figures, Pluto figure with picnic basket plus paper cut-out accessories. The trunk of the Roadster even folds down to accommodate Pluto with his picnic basket. The paper cut-out accessories include trees, hedges, a blanket, picnic ingredients, a guitar, and a smiling sun.
The toy also features music and character phrases from the “Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway” attraction.
Great Movie Finds even installed this table so that guests can see the toys in action before purchasing.
Take the controls of the Runnamuck Railroad with this Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway remote control trackless train.
Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and their pals Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Goofy, plus Chuuby the bird, are all included. The battery-operated locomotive and carts zoom, shake and spin while playing music and character phrases.
Much like the actual ride vehicles, the railway cars will “magically” follow the leading train.
Chuuby the Bird
Chuuby is frequently featured in Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway merchandise. He is the friendly orange cartoon bird residing in Runamuck Park. He lives in the train barn adjacent to the Runamuck Railroad station and enjoys entertaining guests with his charming personality.
According to the ride’s lore: “Joyfully whistling up in the train barn or tunnel entrance, Chuuby is a merry resident of Runamuck Park and the essence of his happy surroundings. This multi-talented song-and-dance bird has aspirations of one day performing on the big stage!”
Disney Imagineer Kevin Rafferty created the original character Chuuby for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. According to The OC Register, originally intended to be named “Chubby,” a typo during a development meeting led to the adoption of the name “Chuuby,” which was deemed more endearing. Additionally, the three baby birds hatched from eggs in the train barn loop are referred to as the “Chuubettes.” We at WDWNT lovingly refer to him as “Chuuby the Merchandise Bird” since he appears so often on attraction-related items.
