Disney Wikkeez are collectible figurines (each about 1" to 1.4" in size) in stylized likenesses of a wide array of Disney owned characters, distributed by PPI Worldwide Group, the makers of Gogo's Crazy Bones (similar figurines that became a popular fad during the 1990s and 2000s). They were first released in mid-2014.
The series was first distributed in Israel under the name Disney Gogo's Crazy Bones; they were given away as promos for Strauss Brand, Dany Chocolate Pudding and Yogurt. Following this test run, the figurines were renamed Disney Wikkeez and subsequently sold in the UK and Germany. In the latter country, marketability was tested with blind bags of 30 select characters given out as promos at Rewe grocery stores during the 2014 Christmas season. The Rewe chain also offered collector's bags, collector's boxes, and board games for the toys.
Series #1 (2014)
The first series features 53 figurines. Two characters (Standard Mickey and Boo) are exclusive to the German Rewe promotion; five characters (Minnie Mouse, Retro Mickey, Rockstar Mickey, WALL-E, CLU) are available as gold variants in the UK. The blind bags also contain a sticker of the character.
The Kermit Wikkeez has been prominently featured on the product's packaging.
