(Disneyland, 1955) An extremely rare souvenir of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle from 1955. The toy features a heavy cardboard base with graphics of the castle topped off with the three fairies from the soon-to-be-released “Sleeping Beauty”, underneath a “crystal ball” dome. As the air inside the dome would heat up in the sun, the fairies would spin. These “solar” engines” were popular in Tomorrowland as part of the science themed merchandise. However, the “magic of solar-driven motion” was applied here to create an unusual souvenir of Fantasyland. Specific merchandise of the Castle itself is scarce, and the use of characters from a feature film not yet released even more so. Measuring, 3.25 x 5.25 in. and in good condition with some fading and wear.
