Alice Disney Heroes Card

Alice Disney Heroes Card from Sainsbury.

2019 giveaway by the supermarket, who say:

There are a total of 144 Heroes cards including 36 special edition cards.

So I’m very lucky that my lovely nephew Owen had a duplicate of Alice and decided to give it to me. Thanks Owen!

From Sainsbury’s website:

Running from the 21st August until 2nd October, the campaign will bring Disney, Pixar, Star Wars™ and Marvel heroes together.  Customers will be able to get their hands on an exclusive collectors album along with 144 cards all based on characters from the stories

Based around the theme of ‘unlock the hero in you’, the album and cards are packed full of facts, games and challenges ranging from Eating Well, and Getting Active and Being Smart to Expressing Yourself, Doing Good and Teaming Up to help keep children entertained and active over the summer.  Each challenge is associated with a different Disney Hero – from Marvel’s Incredible Hulk helping children eat well and Pixar’s The Incredibles showing how you can get active.

The albums will be on sale for £2.50 with two free card packs being given to get people’s collection started. Customers will also receive one free pack of four cards for every £10 they spend in store or online and for those wanting to expand their collection, booster trading card packs will be available for 50p.  To encourage healthier eating, an extra pack is also up for grabs when customers purchase Sainsbury’s Mini Easy Peelers, mini bananas, mini apples or mini pears*, to help encourage eating well. Sainsbury’s Travel Money Bureaus will also be offering one free pack of trading cards for every £100 spent. 

Cards can be traded and swapped with other children to help complete the set.  In addition, there are some special effect cards that sparkle, glow in the dark, and have a secret picture beneath a rub-away surface.

Mark Given, Chief Marketing Officer, Sainsbury’s, said: “This incredible collaboration is bringing the world of Disney Heroes to Sainsbury’s stores for the first time via these special albums and cards.  We can’t wait to see collectors make their own fruit-inspired lightsaber, dance like Groot, or find the glittering Elsa card.  We’re proud to showcase through this campaign that being a hero is not just about being strong and fast, but about being kind, working with others, being expressive, and being smart.”

The Disney Heroes campaign at Sainsbury’s runs until the 2nd October 2019.

The Alice card has a heat sensitive portion on the rose and iris, which change from black to coloured with the heat of a finger rubbed over the area.

Urban Decay: Alice in Wonderland

AD694684-F1D6-4CB1-A611-1AA90D0AD6C2Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland eyeshadow palette- Inspired by the Movie Alice Through the Looking Glass.

From Urban Decay’s product description:

When Disney asked us to jump down the rabbit hole with them again and collaborate on an all-new spectacular adventure, of course we said yes. Inspired by the new fantasy-adventure film release of Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, this limited-edition, pop-up palette is a trippy tribute to our favourite characters from the film.

Using the visually stunning Alice Through the Looking Glass as our inspiration, we painstakingly created the perfect mix of 20 ALL-NEW shades, then arranged them all in columns by character and put them in an intricately designed, collectible palette. Match up the columns to steal their looks or mix up these shades to create countless others. From softer shades inspired by Alice’s look in the film to bold, bright shades like those seen on the Mad Hatter, it’s all here.

The shadows are designed and organised by character, so Alice’s include a pretty pink and a pinafore blue, whereas the White Queen’s are pale and interesting, and the Mad Hatter’s bright orange and purple and puce and viridian.

This palette features colourful, kaleidoscopic artwork woven out of flowers and butterflies and includes several of our favourite quotes from the film. Hits of embossing and gloss give the palette a luxe, dimensional feel. When you lift the lid and open up the doors inside, a three-dimensional butterfly springs up. Pull open the palette’s drawer to reveal the shadows, which are arranged by character in columns from left to right: Alice, Mad Hatter, Mirana (the White Queen), Iracebeth (the Red Queen) and Time (a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock).

What you get:

Alice: Looking Glass (pale pink demi-matte), Reflection (soft peach matte), Dormouse (warm brown matte w/ floating gold micro-sparkle) and Metamorphosis (vibrant periwinkle blue w/micro-sparkle).

Mad Hatter: Hatter (vibrant green w/tonal micro-sparkle), Gone Mad (aubergine w/pink iridescent pearl), Paradox (vibrant orange w/gold pearl) and Cake (saturated blue-pink w/silver micro-shimmer).

Mirana: Lily (opal pink pearl), Duchess (peach w/pink shift and micro-sparkle), Kingdom (copper-bronze pearl) and Chessboard (medium brown matte).

Iracebeth: Heads Will Roll (vibrant turquoise w/gold micro-sparkle), Bandersnatch (deep teal matte), Salazen Grum (metallic crimson) and Royal Flush (pale beige shimmer).

Time: Time (black-navy satin w/soft iridescent micro-sparkle), Dream On (metallic purple-silver), Chronosphere (metallic deep bronze) and Mirror (gray-taupe satin).

The box is really pretty, but not terribly practical (who really cares!).The shadows are in a drawer that takes up the bottom half of the box. The top half is decorative, with a pop up butterfly hidden behind double doors. There is a mirror though…
Pretty much out of stock at the moment, but pops up on amazon.

Alice in Wonderland: a Visual Companion

Alice in Wonderland: a Visual Companion by Mark Salisbury, with a foreword by Tim Burton.

Published by Disney Editions (16 Mar 2010). Hardback first edition with dustjacket.

ISBN: 9781423128878

From the publisher’s bumpf:

Think you know the classic story of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland? Think again because renowned director and producer Tim Burton (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, James and the Giant Peach, Edward Scissorhands, Beetle Juice, Batman) has applied his signature style to this beloved tale! The “Making/Art of” takes readers to the world behind Burton’s camera, revealing the secrets of performance-capture technology, the marriage of live-action and CGI technology, and the final result in a singular, artistic format. Fans will delight in reading about Johnny Depp’s portrayal of The Mad Hatter, and Anne Hathaway’s of The White Queen, to name just a few of the star performances. And, of course, this gorgeous book chronicles some of Tim Burton’s most unique techniques!

Whatever you think of the film, it’s certainly a beautifully produced book, and it’s currently reduced on Amazon: Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland Visual Companion: A Visual Companion (Disney Editions)

Alice in Wonderland: Disney Novelisation

Alice in Wonderland: Disney Novelisation by T.T. Sutherland

Based on the film by Tim Burton, and the screenplay by Linda Woolverton.

Published by Puffin, 2010

ISBN: 978-0141330464

Product Description:

From Walt Disney Pictures and visionary director Tim Burton comes a magical re-imagining of one of the most beloved stories of all time. Mia Wasikowska stars as 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl, reuniting with her childhood friends: the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Dormouse, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, and of course, the Mad Hatter. Alice embarks on a fantastical journey to find her true destiny and end the Red Queen’s reign of terror.

From the cover:

Just beyond our world lies a place where madmen share their tea with hares and dormice. A queen enjoys a tyrannous reign, while terrifying beasts and immaterial felines roam her kingdom. There is a simple way into this world, and a young woman named Alice has found it. Join her as she travels down the rabbit hole and into a place called Underland.

Based on the frankly meh film. And why call it Alice in Wonderland, when that’s what most people think the original is called? I suspect this’ll get bought in error by people looking for the ‘proper’ Alice. What a disappointment they’ll get…

Grump.

Bought on amazon only in an attempt at completeness: Alice in Wonderland (Book of the Film)

Alice in Wonderland: The Visual Guide

Alice in Wonderland: The Visual Guide: Disney.

Published by Dorling Kindersley, 2010. Hardback.

ISBN: 978-1405352598

Product description:

Go behind the scenes of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Meet Alice, from Alice in Wonderland; now aged 17 she attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. She runs off, following a white rabbit into a hole and ends up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn’t remember. Step into Wonderland and come face-to-face with the characters from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, and satisfy your curiosity through tons of cool facts. You’ll meet The Mad Hatter, The White Queen, Cheshire Cat, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and more. Then journey through fantastic stills and CG character photography from the movie and discover all about Alice’s magical adventures.

Not as ‘DK’ as you’d expect: pretty much a storybook with photos and a few odd facts. Glossy and well presented though, but I suspect the ‘Visual Companion’ is more interesting.

Available on amazon: Alice in Wonderland the Visual Guide (Disney Alice in Wonderland)
