Disney Inspired Fall Gift Baskets

I know everyone is talking about the fall weather and everything that comes along with with it. They have since the beginning of September while I'm still clinging to summer! In order to put my mind in the right frame of mind, I decided to put together a couple of gift baskets. I used the two books I was sent from Disney Publishing Worldwide for review: Papillon Goes to the Vet and Art of Coloring: Mickey & Minnie.

Before we get to the baskets, let's talk about the books.

Papillon Goes to the Vet
by A.N. Kang
Publisher: Disney Publishing Worldwide
ISBN: 978-1484728819


Papillon, the kitty so fluffy he floats, is back! Papillon Goes to the Vet, is the second book in this whimsically charming picture book series. With lively mixed-media illustrations, Kang takes readers on the journey that every fluffy kitty must make when his ability to float drops and the hiccups won't stop! The encouraging ending will inspire many giggles, and perhaps a kitty hug or two.

My review:

This was an adorable book that any child will enjoy. The artwork is absolutely wonderful. Who doesn't love a fluffy cat with the ability to float? Papillon swallows a toy that causes hiccups and he can no longer float. He has to stay at the vets where he meets other cats who seem to have talent and beauty he doesn't. All's well that ends well when Papillon's hiccups finally are cured.

This was a fun basket to put together. It would be great for a birthday or a get well basket for any child.

Art of Coloring: Mickey & Minnie
by Disney Book Group
Publisher: Disney Publishing Worldwide
ISBN: 978-1484789735


Fun, funny, and feisty patterns and character designs permeate the near-ninety-year history of Disney's beloved mice: Mickey and Minnie. These images are ideal for taking pencil to paper and adding your own brand if color and style. Perfect for cultivating creativity, relaxation, and focus, these pages are filled with line art from Disney animation, comics, featuring work from Ub Iwerks, Floyd Gottfredson, and more.

My review:

One of my favorite parts of this coloring book is the history that is included. It names the cartoon short along with the date, and occasionally the person who created the poster or comic strip. If you have a friend who is an avid Disney fan and enjoys coloring, they'll like this book. There are a couple pieces of this book that I'm not thrilled with. One is that there's a lot of black already colored in so it limits the amount of coloring you can do. The other is that the comic strips as well as a couple of other pages are so minute and detailed it would be hard to color. I did find inspiration to make a fall gift basket for a friend or sister who needs a boost.

Those are both great gift ideas. I think I'd enjoy the coloring book. I own a few adult coloring books and find it relaxing. Like you, though, I'm not sure I'd like that there's a lot of black already filled in.
