Enamel pin collecting really became a thing for me in 2018 and although my collecting has calmed down LOADS this year, I still order pins that are unique or designs I don’t already own. This enamel pin from FoxLeap is one of those!
I’m not the biggest Disney fan in the world and I much prefer Studio Ghibli and other anime style films. However, I can’t deny that I do love to watch Disney films when the mood takes me and I own a handful of my favourites on DVD. These include, Dumbo, Oliver & Company, 101 Dalmatians, Pocahontas and of course Lady and the Tramp, which is my favourite Disney film.
Since 2018 when my enamel pin collecting began, I was always keeping my eyes peeled for a gorgeous design of Lady and the Tramp together, or even separately. Of course, Disney have their own enamel pins of them but I’m more for supporting independent artists with unique designs. Let’s face it, Disney just use images from promotional items and various stock photos.
From memory, I think I had been following FoxLeap on Instagram as I can’t remember how I stumbled across the Animals of Animation: Enamel Pin Set Kickstarter she set up to sell a bunch of gorgeous Disney style enamel pins.
I waited for Lady and the Tramp to be fully funded before I backed the campaign but I then had a while to wait for the enamel pin I ordered to be produced, as well as a free Lady pin and some stickers to make their way to FoxLeap before I could receive my goodies!
Finally nearly a couple of months ago I received my goodies, which I knew I had to share with you on my blog post today. Every time I look at my Lady and the Tramp and Lady pins they make me so happy!
In my package I received my Lady and the Tramp enamel pin, a limited edition Lady pin that was only available for people who backed the Kickstarter, two sticker sheets and even a cute thank you card from Sophie, the owner of FoxLeap.
Through backing on the Kickstarter we all had 15 designs to choose from:
I love that there were a couple of non Disney related films in there – such as All Dogs Go To Heaven, which in turn is a film my mom introduced me to during the Christmas holidays as a kid. I fell in love with it and she made sure I had it on video to watch. I do love the Charlie pin style!
As I’ve mentioned, I backed the Kickstarter for the Lady and the Tramp pin, so when it arrived I was so damn excited! I love when I back Kickstarter enamel pin campaigns and seeing the owners of the campaigns sharing the pins on their social media platforms, especially Instagram.
This pin made me so happy when I saw it in the package and the first thing I thought of was how adorable the dog couple looked. They’re sitting next to one another, giving each other a loving look – which is confirmed by the cute little red heart above their heads.
The special Lady pin that was designed purely for people who backed the Kickstarter and it’s such a cute little pin, it’s perfect to me! It’s just of Lady’s head with a little speech bubble coming from her mouth, that contains a heart.
Both pins are rose gold plated, which I love! I’m not a fan of gold in general, so when pins are plated on that I’m not 100% keen. The rose gold compliments them both really well! Alongside this the enamel pins themselves are so soft to the touch, which feels really nice. Not all pins I own feel nice when I hold them in my hand. Even Dane said how nice these feel when being held. They also both come with two pins on the back with black rubber clasps. I like that Fox Leap decided to do this with the Lady pin, because even though it’s tired, you know you have more “security” I suppose when pinning this to clothing, bags, etc.
The one thing I really admire with these pins is that all 15 designs that came out of the Kickstarter (and the limited edition Lady pin) had their own special backing card designed. This was such a lovely touch and to this day I haven’t seen any other enamel pin artists/sellers do this.
For the Lady and the Tramp pin the backing card is at night, with a full moon at the top and “Bella Notte” above their heads and for the Lady pin it has a thank you message from Sophie, which I thought was a lovely touch!
As I mentioned, alongside these pins I also received some stickers! I’m pretty sure as a backer of the Kickstarter I was only supposed to receive one, but I actually received two! I got a sticker set I really wanted, alongside the one that everyone received.
The sticker sheet that everyone received contains some of the Disney dogs, including Angel and Scamp (Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure) Lady and Tramp (Lady and the Tramp) and Georgette and Dodger (Oliver & Company).
The additional sticker sheet I received is one that has loads of cute foxes on! As I’ve said many a time, foxes are my favourite animal (alongside dogs) so I was so pleased to receive this set! There is one Disney dog on this sticker sheet though… But I can understand why. 😛
The Disney foxes sticker set includes Vixie, Todd and Copper (Fox and the Hound), Nick (Zootopia) and Robin Hood and Marian (Robin Hood). Honestly, Robin Hood is by far my favourite! He’s so damn cute and I would love if Fox Leap brought out a charm like this!
Finally we have the cute little thank you postcard that was also in my package. It has Todd and Conner from Fox and the Hound running through a field and it’s just adorable! I plan to hang it up on my notice board in the office. 🙂 It has a little thank you message on the back too, which is always lovely to receive.
So those are the goodies I backed from the Kickstarter, as well as any extra bits I received in my parcel!
I loved this Kickstarter so much and so excited for it to arrive.
I’m going to pop any social media and store links down below for Fox Leap. Although I’ve linked it throughout the post, it’s always good to have stuff together too.
What do you guys think of Fox Leap? They sell some really cute enamel pins, as well as t-shirts, stickers, notebooks and keyrings. They don’t just design Disney either! They also design Pokemon and have recently held another Kickstarter campaign for some Pokemon “pups” designs!
I’ll definitely purchase from Fox Leap again, as their designs are adorable! I’d love to see a Meeko and Flit design from Pocahontas as well as Dumbo.
What pin(s) would you pick up from Fox Leap if you could? 😀 Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!
Until next time, take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend!
