Good Night, Luv! Mrs. Potts & Chip are Suspended!

Sales Reps and Authorized Dealers were advised of the suspension of Mrs. Potts and Chip ("Good Night, Luv") from Disney's Beauty and the Beast (1991).

Mrs. Potts and Chip were released in March 1997 along with Lumiere (Suspended in February, 2009) and Cogsworth (Suspended in June, 2009). All three Enchanted Objects were sculpted by Valerie Edwards.

In 2009, the Walt Disney Classics Collection introduced the Enchanted Objects in 'Enchanted Size' versions in scale to Belle and Beast (Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts & Chip and Babette, sculpted by Jacqueline Perreault Gonzales). These were done as Open Edition releases and are still available and not to be confused with the full-size releases that are now all suspended.

Special Note Regarding Suspensions: When an Item is Suspended it is out of stock and there are no plans to re-order for at least a year. However, it could be decided to change the status from Suspended to Retired (Dry Retirement) at some point.

If interested in a suspended item, you may want to check with retailers regarding availability as there is no guarantee that the item could be put back into production and its status changed back to active status.
