Happy Feet x Disney: A Fun New Collection from a Shark Tank Favorite...

Written by

If you're an avid viewer of ABC's Shark Tank, you may recall an episode from a few years back when Shark Robert Herjavec, Founder & CEO of Herjavec Group made a deal with a little company called Happy Feet. The maker of plush character slippers had been around since the late 90s, but it was that 2014 deal that really took things in a new direction. Now, a new collaboration between Happy Feet and Disney has been revealed, with Happy Feet set to produce a robust line of plush slippers and proprietary footwear for Disney and Disney•Pixar brands, which includes Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Nightmare Before Christmas, Winnie the Pooh, Disney Princess, FrozenToy Story 4, and many more. This new lineup of over 30 hand-crafted styles joins previous collaborations including a Marvel line. Each pair of Happy Feet is created using unique fabrics, soft plush, and detailed embroidery to bring fan-favorite characters to life. Check out a preview below...

"We are delighted to embark on this new journey with Disney. Their expansive portfolio of beloved characters and timeless stories provide Happy Feet with a never-ending supply of inspiration," says Happy Feet President, Pat Yates. "Our line of plush slippers and patented Zlipperz™ provide Happy Feet fans with the exceptional quality, innovation, and touch of magic that we have come to expect from Disney."

The new Disney x Happy Feet collection is available exclusively through BuyHappyFeet.com and Amazon.
