Tinker Bell Collectibles on Display

A fantastic collection of Tinker Bell collectibles are now on display at the Buena Park Library District, located at 7150 La Palma Avenue in Buena Park, between Knott and Western Avenues. Caroline Egan, a Buena Park Library District staff member, has been collecting Tinker Bell memorabilia for a few years but states that Tinker Bell has always been a childhood favorite. A small portion of her collection is on exhibit in the Library lobby now through the end of December 2006.

Included in the display are mugs, watches, snow globes, music boxes, figurines, original artwork, pins, key chains, tea sets, desk accessories, and a set of "Disney Fairies," a new series of books about Tinker Bell’s friends from Pixie Hollow. The collectibles are from Tokyo Disney, Disneyland Paris and from London’s Disney Store, as well as our local Disneyland.

Tinker Bell originally appeared in the J. M. Barrie play "Peter Pan" in 1904. According to the Disney website, the pixie debuted on May 5, 1953 in the animated movie "Peter Pan" and is still used as an icon for Walt Disney films and television shows.

The Buena Park Library is open Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., but closed on Federal holidays. For information on how you might want to display your own collections for the public to see, please call the Library’s Reference Desk at 714-826-4100, ext. 125.
