Review: Final Release in 'Tinker Bell Seasons' Series

For fans of Tinker Bell, this coming weekend is the 4th (and Final) release in the Tinker Bell Seasons Series. The final release is Summer Tinker Bell.


Celebrating summer while sitting pretty on a blossom in full bloom, Tinker Bell shows all the sunniness and sass that has made her so irresistible ever since she first flitted onto the scene in Walt Disney’s Peter Pan.

Pretty as a posy, this twinkling pixie lights up with a pert smile for a ladybug who lights on her shoulder. The piece is plussed with pewter leaves, hair ribbon and ladybug, and specially designed by Disney Master Artist David Pacheco.

'Enchanting Encounter' sculpted by Jacqueline Perreault Gonzales is the fourth and final release of the Tinker Bell Seasons Series (and the seventh release in the Disney Artist Series) is the showpiece of the 2012 Enchanting Encounter Premiere Event to be held September 07-09, 2012

Hey! It's fun seeing them all together! Thanks for posting.

You're Welcome Tim! They do make a great grouping.

I also like the fact, the series was done by two very talented sculptors, Margi Wray (Fall and Winter) and Jacqueline Perreault Gonzales (Spring and Summer), yet their own unique style blends well together when all four are displayed together.

Yes, for the "casual" WDCC collector, they may not even realize there are two sculptors for this series.

My favorite is still the first/Fall Tinker Bell, but now that I have all four pieces (After this weekend I will!), I think I'll dedicate a spot and rotate the four pieces with the seasons.

My favorite is Spring Tinker Bell. Really like the pose, the base and how the weight of the rain, weighed her wings down.

When we got our new curio, Mary quickly put in dibs for one of the shelves. She has all four displayed together (really makes a nice grouping). I prefer your idea ]:)
