Mad Hatter Musical Animated Big Figure - Limited Edition - Mint Condition. This piece was part of the 50th anniversary celebration at Disneyland way back in 2005, is from a very limited edition of only 310 pieces, and has been sitting in its box in my garage, unopened, all this time! This stunning Mad Hatter big figure is, well, BIG! Its nearly 2 feet tall, about 15 wide, and heavy.
This sculpture is rendered in high quality, hand-painted resin, and is retired with a limited number of examples in the hands of Disney collectors. This piece is extremely cheerful, playful, and vibrant.The colors are vivid and the mood is crazy as a Mad Hatter! On the base of the tea pot in the Mad Hatters right hand is a small music box key. Turn that key and the song, A Very Merry Un-Birthday to You plays. Yes, this big figure is also a music box!
The tea thats pouring from the tea pot into the stack of cups actually rotates as the music plays, giving the illusion of liquid pouring! Disney imagineers use this same effect in several rides in Fantasyland. It took me over 30 minutes to carefully remove this piece from its packaging and assemble it. Its big and heavy and delicate.
Please set aside the better part of an hour to unbox and set it up or youre likely to break some part of it. The tea that comes out of the tea pot is actually a little flexible where it attaches to the tea pot so that it wont break off quite so easily. That was a stroke of genius by the folks at Disney. Even so, please be very, very careful when unboxing and setting up this piece! If you notice any small white dots in the photos, theyre likely just tiny bits of styrofoam from the packaging.This piece is brand new, in the box, with all original packing materials. The piece was only removed from the box to inspect and photograph it and is in brand new, mint condition.
This piece does include the original instruction/assembly sheet and the certificate of authenticity (COA) indicating that its from a Limited Edition. Its very strong now and has more than enough protection.The piece itself is perfect and the styrofoam that surrounds it has some wear on the outside that doesnt affect its ability to protect the piece. Ill say it again to avoid any confusion: the piece itself is in perfect condition.
