Where To Buy page

The plush toy collectibles have a suggested retail price of $12.50.
The price can change at any time with or without notice.
When do the next releases come out?
This is the most commonly asked question, and 99% of the time no one knows the exact answer to this question until very soon before they are released. You can find all the details about future releases here:
If the release date is not listed on those pages we do not have an answer yet.
What does "Set 1", "Set 2", etc. mean?
The Set number refers to when the designs were released. Designs released at or around the same time are typically put up for sale on DisneyStore.com in a bundled set.
What are the "Mickey & Friends", "Pooh & Friends", "Toy Story", etc. pages?
On Pook-a-Looz.com we assemble mini-collections to encourage "non-completist" collectors to complete a smaller series of related designs, as well as for better organization of the website. We find that browsing by "Set 1", "Set 2", etc. might not be as easy to find the design you are looking for as it would be by browsing by one of the themed pages (i.e. Mickey and Friends, Muppets, etc.).
Some Pook-a-Looz may eventually be moved to another page, or "mini-collection", once other related designs are released. For example, Peter Pan and Tinker Bell are currently listed under Disney Classics, but if other Peter Pan characters are eventually released, then it would make sense to move Peter and Tink and create a new "Peter Pan" mini-collection with the new designs.
Some designs may be featured on multiple pages. For example, the Queen of Hearts may be featured on the Alice In Wonderland page, as well as an eventual Disney Villains page.
The "mini-collections" are not official.
There is a seller on eBay using pictures from Pook-a-Looz.com. Is this you selling on eBay? If not, are they allowed to steal your pictures?
The official user name for Pook-a-Looz.com and VinylNation.net on eBay is "pook-a-looz" and "vinylnationdotnet". If you see someone using Pook-a-Looz.com or VinylNation's pictures and it is not "pook-a-looz" or "vinylnationdotnet', then they were borrowed from us either with or without permission. We request that if people borrow pictures from us that they leave the images unedited, unalterd, and uncropped so that our logo is still visible. Also, they must make it clear in the item description that they are not affiliated with Pook-a-Looz.com or VinylNation.net.
Is there a way to submit my idea to Disney? Does Disney read the site looking for ideas?
No. Disney does not want to hear any of your design ideas. It's for their own legal protection, not that they don't care about what fans would like to see. Disney does not browse the site looking for ideas. Anything you post and they then develop is by mere coincidence only. The most common occurrence of this is when someone designs a character. The character is a popular property of the company and just because their design looks similar it does not mean they stole your idea. Also, their designs are done months, even a year in advance. To prevent any case of "Disney stole my idea!", they have made it clear to us that they do not want to be sent any ideas and do not browse around looking for ideas.
