As a fan of all things Disney, one must be familiar with Vinylmation. In case you aren’t familiar, these are 1.5″, 3″, and 9″ vinyl collectibles sold at Disney theme parks, select Disney Stores, and the online Disney Store. Vinylmation comes from combining the words Animation and Vinyl. Each figurine is shaped like Mickey Mouse but they have different markings and colors. Trading Vinylmation characters is quite encouraged, much like Disney pin trading. I have yet to begin a collection because I just know it could get out of hand!
Whether you have a Vinylmation collection or not, I have an idea of how to spend your Friday night! Check out this free viewing of Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story by Disney. This isn’t your typical movie. Creatively using animation, stop-motion and a silent film, you can follow the story of Blank, an unpainted Vinylmation, on an epic adventure through an original new world to find his lost soulmate. I found the film to be adorable!
Blank is at the factory with all of the other Vinylmations, where they are getting their special markings and colors. When he comes out on the conveyor belt Blank is sort of stumped because he didn’t receive any markings. He decides to go back through, again, and again. Each time he goes through he has some random paint splattered on him, until finally he is wiped clean again. Blank is what is meant to be. He is a little disturbed until he meets a girl. This girl is also blank, but has a red bow between her ears. It appears to be love at first sight when “Bow” gives blank a black bowtie to wear. Follow along as Blank and Bow are separated and spend their journey befriending others, having their own adventures, and doing all they can to come back to one another.
Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story is 38 minutes and can be found exclusively on Google Play! Viewers can watch the film online from their computer, via Android phone or tablet or on iPhones and iPads. Did I mention it is free to watch? I’m thinking family fun night this Friday evening! Grab the popcorn and watch with the kids!
