Are you a fan of “Alice in Wonderland”? Or perhaps the Mad T Party, which lights up the night in Hollywood Land inside Disney California Adventure park? Well, hold on to your hats, because this collection designed by local Southern Californian artist Jeff Granito, in collaboration with Disney Theme Park Merchandise, is going to make your head spin.
The key (quite literally) to this first set of pins is that not only do they represent some of the iconic images in the Mad T Party, but they actually glow in the dark.
What else did Jeff have up his sleeve when designing these? How about a pin that comes with its very own Mad T Party guitar pick? It pops right out of the middle of the hat.
There’s a glow-in-the-dark Cheshire Cat pin that is simply a’MAZE’ing, a pocket watch reminding you it’s “Time to Trade,” an adjustable lanyard (which also serves as a functional guitar strap) and even a mystery pin set collection.
Last but not least, here are two others that, in my mind, take the cake – the un-birthday cake, that is. The first is an Annual Passholder exclusive that says “Password Please” and features the infamous Tweedle bouncers. The other is an actual guitar-style pin, complete with strap, and designed with what appears to be a teapot, but here’s the trick … it’s actually a pin-on-pin, and when the teapot is removed, it reveals “We’re All Mad Here” with the Cheshire Cat, which glows in the dark.
Want to meet the artist? Then you’re in luck. As part of the release on December 8, Artist Jeff Granito will be on hand for a special signing from 6-8 p.m. at Off the Page in Disney California Adventure park. It’s where the “Par T” is!
