Today’s mug comes to you from the Disney store inside the Sunvalley Mall in Concord, CA. YEARS ago, when my grown boys were still little guys a Disney store came to our local mall. It was a new phenomenon back then, being able to buy Disney paraphernalia without going to Disneyland, and we were excited! I can’t count the number of times we visited that store. We had little kids, so it was the place.
Winnie The Pooh was big in our house! We had several Winnie The Pooh Playtime VHS tapes that the boys would watch over and over again; Cowboy Pooh, Detective Tigger, Rabbit Marks the Spot, just to name a few. Tigger has always been my favorite. My personality is more like Eeyore, but I want to be like Tigger;
“bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!”
If I remember correctly, this mug was one of the first things I bought from that new Disney store. Since then birthdays, Christmases, and grandkids have taken me back to the Disney store, but most recently to the one in the Round Rock Outlets now that we live in Texas.
This mug makes me happy. It takes me back to a happy, child-filled time and makes my heart feel bouncy. For just a little while, as long as the coffee lasts, Eeyore turns into Tigger.
