It All Started With a Mouse!
"We hope you enjoy this celebration of the characters and settings that live at the heart of our fondest Disney memories."
Walt Disney Classics Collection
"I was creating maquette sculptures for the animated films and was asked to work on a new collectible line called the Walt Disney Classics Collection. I had seen various porcelain figurines before and I was very skeptical of what could be done in this medium. However, I decided to see a couple of the initial figurines. When I saw the "Field Mouse" piece in all its detail, I was astonished. I knew right then that I wanted to be an integral part of the project".More about Kent Melton

Background and History
The collection debuted with teaser ads for retailers in the Fall 1991 trade magazine issue. The Field Mouse from Bambi was unveiled and excitement mounted. This was the first collection where the Disney Company had produced their own line of Disney figurines.
The Walt Disney Classics Collection premiered in July 1992. After months of painstaking work, the first sculptures were shipped to dealers in October of 1992.
After more than 20 years, the Walt Disney Classics Collection came to a close. At the end of 2012, Enesco parted ways with the line. Precious Moments stepped in to take over the role, but following much negative feedback surrounding these new collectibles, the entire series was cancelled.
WDCC pieces have become highly collectible. Due to their intricate, hand-painted designs featuring favorite and memorable Disney characters; collectors now have decades of fine figures to enjoy as prices climb higher on the resale market for these fragile and increasingly rare pieces.
