D23 Treasures of Walt DisneyI grew up watching Mary Poppins on VHS tape.  We watched it over and over again.  I was able to quote the movie and sing every song beginning to end before I was in double digits.  With that information, I am sure you understand why I happily queued up to see the Mary Poppins archives at D23 Expo – part of the D23 Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit.  With Saving Mr. Banks coming out in theaters this December I thought the Mary Poppins archives were  very appropriate treasures to share!

Who else wanted this parasol and dress as a little kid?  This is a BEAUTIFUL piece  close up, the detail is amazing.  While I tried, I don’t think I was able to do it justice in the photograph.  It was lovely, and while it did show it’s age a bit, the outfit was still practically perfect in every way!

Sing it with me friends…. “Though we adore men individually, we agree that as a group their rather stupid!” (that line always cracked me up – absolutely no offense to my husband…. he knows it is a joke!)

Jane Banks Original Costume

As a little girl, I always wanted Jane Bank’s costume, especially her coat.  If I could get my hands on exact replica now, I would totally dress my girls up in it now – seeing it in person was really fun!

And then there was this cuteness……………..

It took all I had to not jump right on top of one of these precious Mary Poppins Carousel horses!  I mean, these are the real deal, these are the real horses used in the movie!  And yes, they are every bit as adorable as I would have expected.

Don’t you want to just scratch her little chin?  Is that just me? I promise I didn’t touch anything…..but I REALLY wanted to!

Mary Poppins Vintage Lunchbox

I’m not quite sure how I got through my childhood without this lunchbox and thermos.  Seriously, if they remake this I would totally buy it for myself.

And for those that are eagerly anticipating Saving Mr. Banks like I am, I present the following brand new additions to the archives…………
