WINNIE THE POOH AND FRIENDS: A NEW COLORFUL BUNCH OF CHARACTERS
Since 2005, Swarovski and Disney have collaborated on collections that capture the essence seen in Disney’s popular movies and characters. Most of the characters you think of when ‘Disney’ is mentioned have been issued in Swarovski Crystal: Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Tinkerbelle, Peter Pan; the list goes on and on. In 2007, Swarovski released the first Winnie the Pooh set consisting of Winnie, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore. Each were produced in clear crystal, with the exception of Winnie, who wore a red vest, carrying a crystal balloon.
This successful collaboration continues with Winnie the Pooh and Friends again for Fall/Winter 2012 and is the first time Swarovski presents the same characters in precision cut, ‘colored’ crystal.
The ever popular and charming Winnie the Pooh glistens in Light topaz crystal with a bright Light Siam crystal shirt. His sapphire crystal honey pot features the word HUNNY in black text. Winnie retails for $230.
Full of bounce, Moroda effect stripes accent the topaz crystal body color of Tigger. As an extra detail, Swarovski has perched a little mint green colored metal caterpillar on the tip of Tigger’s Tail. Tigger retails for $300.
Eeyore, with Jet Crystal eyes, and created in a Light Sapphire Silver crystal, has a contrasting Dark Indigo mane and tail tip. A cute little Jonquil crystal butterfly is perched on his ear and there is a sweet pink crystal bow on the tail. Eyeore retails for $290.
Last but not least is Piglet, in a Rosaline and Rose Crystal color,performing a light-hearted dance, holding a Light Siam Satin crystal colored heart balloon on a silver tone wire. Piglet retails for $120.
With great attention to detail, Swarovski delivers a sparkling portrait of Winnie the Pooh and his Friends which is certain to capture the hearts of Disney enthusiasts of all ages. However, some of our Crystal Fanatics feel this is just another ‘repeated’ set of ‘new’ issues.
