The other day we were in the Park early enough to see the Disneyland band perform in front of the floral Mickey. I made a comment about how bright and white their costumes looked and how they've changed over the years. With that being said, let's take a look at a few of these changes.

Below, from my collection, are NT: 0595, "Send a Disneykin from Disneyland". The Nickel Tour states these are circa 1955, however; Disneykins.com claims they're from 1961. These are postcards with a plastic bubble that contained a Disneykin. Made by Marx, Disneykins were injection molded hard plastic representations of Disney characters and hand-painted by artists in British Hong Kong.
Below are three others I aquired the other day. Unlike the previous two, these do not say "Send a Disneykin from Disneyland" and have the 1961 Walt Disney Copyright in the lower right corner.
