Yesterday morning during the 2012 Toy Fair in New York City, Sharon Osbourne (voice of Mama Hook in the animated television series Jake and the Never Land Pirates) and actor David Arquette (voice of Skully in the in the animated television series Jake and the Never Land Pirates) unveiled the brand new Disney Junior toy line, inspired by the popular programming block on Disney Channel.
Both Sharon Osbourne and David Arquette treated the toy and entertainment industry audience with a light-hearted talent show previewing the new toys inspired by Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Minnie’s Bow-Toons, and Doc McStuffins, a new animated series set to debut on Disney Junior next month about a six-year-old girl who heals toys and stuffed animals out of her backyard clinic.
The new Disney Junior toy line features colorful play sets, figures and feature plush from Fisher Price; role play sets, accessories, plush and dolls from Just Play; interactive board games from Wonder Forge; children’s electronics from VTech; ride-ons from Kiddieland; and bikes and scooters from Huffy, among other products.
Key toys from the new Disney Junior toy line include:
Jake and the Never Land Pirates— A brand new toy line releasing in June will feature plush, role play and accessories from Just Play and action-oriented play sets and figures from Fisher Price, including Jake’s Pirate Ship ($44.99, national retailers, June 2012), which is designed after Bucky, Jake’s ship featured in the series. This swashbuckling pirate ship rocks and rolls when pushed along a surface, with Skully smartly perched on the lookout. Kids can even fire water out of the cannon or stage a surprise croc attack.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse — As the #1 preschool telecast for kids 2-5, this toy line of fun and interactive play sets and figures will be releasing throughout the year. Products include
- Mickey’s Farm Play Set ($44.99, national retailers, Aug. 2012)— Kids can create their own fun farm stories with Mickey Mouse and his friends with this new play set that features realistic animal sounds and fun farm music. Character figures and animals can go for a spin on the dance floor, and a silly hand moves between the silo and windmill.
- Master Moves Mickey ($69.99, national retailers, Aug. 2012). The new Master Moves Mickey dances and interacts, showing off some never-before-seen break-dance moves, ending in a signature handstand. The new dance toy features original music tracks, funky beats and plenty of awesome humor to get the whole family up and dancing
Minnie’s Bow-Toons is an adorable pink and polka-dotted line of Minnie Mouse toys including kitchen and fashion-themed role play from Just Play and dolls and accessories from Fisher Price. One of our favourites is Minnie’s Kitchen ($74.99, national retailers, Aug. 2012), a colorful, multi-level play set has everything girls need to cook up their own kitchen adventures, such as sink that flips to a hidden cutting board and dish rack that flips to a hidden blender. Girls can cook up their own treats with a frying pan to flip a Minnie-shaped pancake and flipping recipe book for inspiring new ideas. The kitchen includes Minnie’s voice and realistic kitchen sounds. (This set reminds me so much of the adorable Minnie Mouse House at Walt Disney World!)
Another line to debut is inspired by the animated series Doc McStuffins and includes an assortment of toys from Just Play.
