My love for Disney is certainly no surprise to those of you whom have been reading this blog for any length of time. I’ve loved all things Disney since I was just little, and laying eyes on Cinderella Castle for the first time simply cemented the connection for me.  The magic of Disney, the attention to detail, none of it was lost on me.

When Disney first released their collection of Vinylmations, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of them.  The small collectibles – their names derive from a combination of the words animation and vinyl – come in a variety of sizes.  They’re all shaped like Mickey Mouse but have different colors and markings to represent everything related to Disney.

I don’t yet have much of a collection, but I do have a few special ones.  One of the Bakery series, one with the year on it, a few of the characters I really love.  I’m also looking forward to adding one that Bubbles gets to choose when we take our first Disney World trip.

Disney now has given the much-beloved collectibles their own short film, Disney “Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story”, available for free exclusively on Google Play.  It’s presented in beautiful stop-motion animation, and while not a word is spoken during the entire 38 minutes, you can’t help but be captivated by the story of Blank and Bow.  A short introduction to the film can be seen below.

Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story – Trailer on Disney Video
Blank and Bow are different in the fact that they are “blanks”, Vinylmation figures that somehow weren’t painted.  “Blanks” get rounded up to be “fixed”, but Blank and Bow don’t want their futures decided for them.  They want to be free to be themselves, to create their own paths.

So Blank sets off to rescue Bow from being “fixed”, telling the story of friendship and acceptance in a sweet and compelling way.  Through their journey, they’re able to show that we should all be able to express ourselves in our own way.  It’s truly heart-warming.

You can share a frame from Disney’s “Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story” with friends and family.  After you send one of these digital greetings, you’ll unlock a second special film, “Cranes in Love”.

To whom will you send a “Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story” frame?
