Disney Consumer Products and Nordstrom announced a collection of “It’s a Small World” themed children's apparel, accessories and footwear. The collection celebrates the 45th anniversary of the It's a Small World attraction at Disneyland.Comprised of four season-themed lines, the apparel for newborns, infants and toddlers will hit Nordstrom stores throughout the year. The lines include Japanese Spring, which launches February 28; Indian Summer, scheduled for June; Scottish Fall, which rolls out in September; and Russian Holiday, which hits the racks in November.
"Our creative team here at Disney Consumer Products has always been inspired by the original Small World art and wanted to draw upon the magical story, prints and patterns, and diverse iconography to create this design-driven contemporary children's collection that brings beauty, meaning and the legacy of It's a Small World," says Robert Oberschelp, director of Disney collections at Disney Consumer Products. "This collection is especially great for gift-giving and keepsakes as the story of Walt Disney's It's a Small World is truly timeless."
To give back, Nordstrom and Disney have teamed up with Toms Shoes and Feed Projects to offer philanthropic pieces in the collection. Toms Shoes will give new shoes to children in need, while funds raised from the sales of Feed's items will enable UNICEF to provide vitamin supplements to children in need.
