Poor Minnie is now a size zero. I thought this new fashion campaign was going to be a good thing, but now childhood heroes are being used to promote an out of touch 'too thin' culture. click here

I can't believe Disney authorised these pictures in this day and age.

Daisy is awful too. Goofy looks swanky, but he's not meant to be. He's meant to be Goofy. If he was going to be Swanky then he would be called... Swanky.

You are right of course though, it is totally wrong. But then, I've seen some prety ugly interpretations of characters in the past... try this for size...
This was at the Disney Store, believe it or not...

Oh goodness, those Sing-a-long toys gave us nightmares when we saw then in FL last year.

As for Minnie ... yeah, that's both appalling and ridiculous. You see an awful lot of stylised Disney charries in the Art of Disney stores but this is taking it a bit too far in the wafer thin department. The only good thing is that frankly, it doesn't look like Minnie. *shudder*
