I think we can all agree that adolescence was a time of transformation, self-discovery… and some serious awkwardness. These are just some of the themes you’ll find in Disney and Pixar’s new animated film “Turning Red,” a coming-of-age tale like none you’ve ever seen, now streaming on Disney+. Based in the early 2000s, this nostalgic flick follows 13-year-old Meilin “Mei” Lee, who turns into a big red panda when she gets excited (talk about awkward!). Can’t wait to be transported back to this boy-band-loving time? Neither can I, which is why I’m delighted to share with you the multiple ways you can celebrate the film with new products from Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, shopDisney, and global retailers.
If you’re looking to sport your red-panda-best and bring the fun of the film home, check out this plaid flannel shirt, featuring the embroidered face of Red Panda Mei on the back, and highlights of the film on the front. I should mention that it also goes perfectly with this panda-riffic top that’s sure to zen you out. Both are available now on shopDisney and coming soon to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Finish off your look with a classic Minnie Mouse ear headband, which features a plush embroidered Mei, Panda Mei, and a furry fleece bow- coming soon to shopDisney, Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort!
For the little panda cubs, there are plenty of goodies for them to join in on the fun too, including a baseball cap and plush slippers– both available now at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and on shopDisney—and a tie-dye T-shirt and mineral wash T-shirt, available now on shopDisney and coming soon to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Stylish, cozy, and– above all– cute!
For the chefs or foodies in your life, this red figural mug and noodle bowl will have them bursting with excitement. Write down all your recipes and notes in this adorable Red Panda Mei journal, along with stickers to help amp up the fun. Any journal that has a tail is a journal that deserves to hear MY deepest thoughts! These are all coming soon to Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and shopDisney.com.
Not that this “bears” repeating, but your red-panda-best wouldn’t be complete without your very own Red Panda Mei plush, ready for all the cuddles! If you want to match and turn into a panda yourself, snuggle up in this plush robe. Both are available now on shopDisney and coming soon to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Keep checking back on shopDisney for even more great items to appear! By the way, if you’re snagging any of these goodies from Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort, I highly recommend using merchandise mobile checkout to save yourself a bunch of time! It’s a new way to scan and pay at select stores right from your phone (Check the My Disney Experience or Disneyland app during your visit for the latest location availability).
