Precious Moments figures have always held a special place in my heart. For as long as I can remember, my grandmother collected Precious Moments. She had figures to commemorate special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and more. I always enjoyed admiring her Precious Moments collection when I went to visit her. Each of the figures were adorable and shared a message of love – whether it be the love of a spouse, mother, child, or God’s love. When my grandmother passed away, I was given a few of her Precious Moments figures to remember her by. They now decorate several rooms in my home. Whenever I see a beautiful Precious Moments figure, I am reminded of her and the love she had for her family.
Recently, Precious Moments contacted me with an opportunity to review a figure from their Disney Showcase Collection. Given my love of Disney and my grandmother’s love of Precious Moments figures, which I now share in, I was thrilled to have the chance to share my thoughts and opinions on the Precious Moments Disney Showcase Collection with you.
Precious Moments sent me the above pictured “When You Hold My Hand I Feel So Grand” figure which features Mary Poppins, Bert, and two penguins. In addition to the adorable Precious Moments versions of these classic Disney characters, the figure is also a music box. When you wind up the music box, it plays music from the classic Sherman Brothers song “Jolly Holiday” from Mary Poppins.
When You Hold My Hand I Feel So Grand
My “When You Hold My Hand I Feel So Grand” figure came packed in a box with styrofoam formed to the shape of the figure, so as to protect it during shipping. Upon opening the box, the figure was easy to remove from the packaging. This Precious Moments figure stands 5.5 inches tall, 5.25 inches wide, and 4 inches deep. The figure is made from porcelain and each detail is beautifully hand-painted.
The hand-painted details on the figure are perfect! You can tell the figure was created with care by a talented artist. While admiring my Precious Moments figure, I noticed the painting on Bert and Mary Poppins even includes tiny details such as their cute little eyelashes. Both characters have the traditional Precious Moments faces which to me makes the figures look like children dressed as their favorite Disney characters. So adorable! In addition to Mary Poppins and Bert, the Precious Moments figure includes two of the dancing penguins from the Jolly Holiday sequence of the 1964 Mary Poppins film. I love that a couple of the penguins, which just happen to be one of my favorite animals, made it on to the Precious Moments tribute to the classic Disney film.
As if the beauty of the “When You Hold My Hand I Feel So Grand” Precious Moments figure wasn’t enough by itself, this figure also includes a music box playing “Jolly Holiday.” The song was written by the Sherman Brothers, my favorite Disney composers, for Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins. The song is one of my favorites of the many Sherman Brothers tunes written for the film. As you may guess from the title, the song gives a happy feeling and you can’t help but sing along. The version of the song played upon winding up the Precious Moments music box provides that same happy feeling, and combined with the visual of the adorable Precious Moments characters, brings you right back to the magic of the Mary Poppins Disney film.
I am incredibly happy with the “When You Hold My Hand I Feel So Grand” Precious Moments figure and would highly recommend it as a gift for any Disney fan! The quality and detail of the figure is remarkable, as you would expect with any Precious Moments product. Each time I look at this figure decorating my home, I smile because it reminds me of the love of my grandmother, as well as, the Disney magic I have grown so fond of.
Precious Moments figures are a great way to celebrate special occasions, send your love to a special person, or just let someone know you are thinking of them. I can’t think of a better way to do that than with a Precious Moments figure from the Disney collection!
