Small World Collection Story!

Small World Collection Story!

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday!

Today we wanted to share a very special product story with you! Our Small World Collection was one of our first EVER collections as a new brand, back in 2012. That was like, 5 years ago! This collection all started with a love for Walt Disney and his magnificent world! We've included the first sketches that artist and owner, Kristen Ley, sketched back when the idea first came about! How cool, right?!

Read below how this collection started and what it means to us!

. . .

Since Kristen was a child, the Walt Disney® ride "It's A Small, Small World" has fascinated her. Starting at age four, Kristen’s parents would take her to Walt Disney World and all she would want to do is ride "It's A Small, Small World" over and over again and watch the colorful parades.

The lights, colors, music, cultures and beautiful installations inspired Kristen then, just as they do now. If you have not had the pleasure of taking a trip through the magical ride, “It’s A Small, Small World,” and have that enchanting melody play over and over again in your ears so that you will never forget we urge you to visit as soon as you can.

The amazing experience is available at Disneyland, Disney World, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland!

We also love that the song is argued to be the single most performed and most translated piece of music on earth. That’s pretty amazing, huh? Visit THIS LINK to watch an uno cial video of the ride at Disney World in Orlando!

Our Small World Collection of prints and greeting cards is a small tribute to the ride that has helped inspire much of Kristen’s life and work. If you would like to shop the prints, please visit one of two local locations in Mississippi! Shop the cards in-store or online HERE!

Each print and greeting card in our Small World Collection features a hand drawn illustration by Kristen and inspired by the shapes and colors within that magical ride!

The cards come in a collection of 3 different color studies! Color Study 1, 2 and 3! See the closeup image below to get a glance at what each design looks like! Walt Disney World has so much inspiration!
