(KUTV) The Disney umbrella has such a reach that both Marvel and Star Wars will be getting their own guides in the coming days. For now, let's look at a handful of Disney and Pixar toys and new releases.
Mickey and Minnie
We're going to kick off this guide off with the classics.
Minnie's Walk & Play Puppy features a plush Minnie Mouse and Snowpuff, her dog. Minnie features two modes of play. One allows the child to teach the dog to bark, spin and dance. The other mode allows Minnie to take Snowpuff on a walk.
