Attention everyone! The latest wacky and wild holiday coming up on the calendar is on June 29th with National Camera Day! Meant to honor the invention of the photograph, it's time to commemorate the photographer in your family or friend group!
But figuring out what to get them can end up turning into a nightmare of indecision. So what can you do?
Well, you've come to the right place. The good folks here at the House of Mouse are here to present you with the top fun Disney collectibles you can get to commemorate National Camera Day! So without further ado, let's jump right into it!
Cool Coins? Gotta Collect Them All
One of the main vintage Disney collectibles you can get to celebrate National Camera Day is pressed pennies. Two notable camera-themed designs are safari Goofy with a camera from the Animal Kingdom and baseball Mickey (also with camera) from Epcot. If quarters are more your speed, Disney offers a special pressed quarter with Mickey holding a video camera from Hollywood Studios.
Or if you're looking to impress the classic movie buff in your family, there's a pressed quarter of Goofy with an old-school film camera. It's important to keep in mind that Disney rotates the machines out with some frequency. So if you see a pressed coin design you love, make sure to leap on it while it's available.
Camera-Themed Disney Collectibles for the Kid at Heart
If you're looking for a camera-themed collectible with a little joy, it's hard to go wrong with the special Mickey Mouse camera accessory for a Mr.Potato Head toy (there's a movie camera accessory too, if that's more your speed). Or if you'd rather go a little more formal, Disney offers these fun sliding pins that resemble cameras with a second piece that slides out as a "picture" of your favorite Disney character. Beach Goofy, Tinker Bell, Stitch...the options are vast, but there are other types like the special DVC camera pin with a surfing Mickey and Minnie Mouse if you seek a break from the norm.
If you're more in the mood for something to use as a decoration, the vintage vinyl figure for Mickey Mouse includes him holding an old-school photo camera is the collectible for you.
For the Active Photographer
But what do you get the photographer you know who's always out and about taking pictures? Well, how about a Disney Movies camera strap? Decorated to look like a film reel with screenshots from classic Disney flicks, this sturdy strap will prove a hit with any photographer.
Capture the Moment
And there you have it! Now that you know the top Disney collectibles to grab for National Camera Day, you're ready to celebrate the poetry of photography (after all, it's a fusion of two Greek words that translate to "writing with light")!
