Souvenir Friday- Tinkerbell Disneyland T Shirts

Today's souvenirs are two different Tinkerbell T Shirts sold at the Emporium. What is neat about the shirts is that on the end of her wand is a little metal piece that kind of glows and catches the light. I believe the bottom shirt is actually older from 1955 or 1956 and the top shirt approximately from 1959. T shirts are a very unique collectable from the early days of Disneyland. I have seen a couple of different ones that are not in my collection. One T shirt is of the native from Adventureland that Gorilla's Don't Blog showed with a kid wearing the shirt as his first post, and there is one that is a shield design as seen on some of the pennants from the late 1950s. I would almost think there is a T shirt with the spaceman or the Rocket to the Moon from Tomorrowland. A great source of information are the various gift catalogs printed. But the trouble is that the gift catalogs are collectables in their own right.

It's amazing that something like this would survive for 50 years. Some little girl didn't wear her Tinkerbell shirt? What's up wit dat? If you ever find a Tomorrowland shirt, I hope you will post it here, since that is my favorite land!

Tinkerbell looks so cute there -- it seems like they make her look kind of trampy now!
