Best Thomas Kinkade Disney Puzzles



MY QUICK REVIEW

A little explanation about why this my favorite Thomas Kinkade Disney puzzle is probably required here.

While I love the fantastic, magical dreamscapes that Thomas Kinkade depicts in his artwork of imaginary Disney scenes, there is something soothing to me when I pull out a puzzle of Main Street USA -- a place that I have visited many times and felt the magic that is there.

When putting together this 1000 piece puzzle of Kinkade’s masterpiece, I promise you’ll be transported to a warm night at the Disney park, engulfed by the sights of a spectacular fireworks show, allowing you to relive the awe that comes from experiencing this quintessential Disney moment.

MY QUICK REVIEW

At 750 pieces, this puzzle of Aladdin and Jasmine soaring together on a magic carpet ride, is challenging enough that it will require some concentrated effort and give a satisfactory sense of accomplishment when you're done.

MY QUICK REVIEW

A 500-piece puzzle provides a quick, enjoyable puzzle experience for adults that need their "puzzle fix". 

For older children, it is a sense of accomplishment to put a 500 piece puzzle together. 

I recommend this pack for all Disney lovers, as it comes with four 500-piece puzzles of famous Thomas Kinkade works of art: 

  • Lady and the Tramp
  • Winnie the Pooh
  • Tangled
  • Fantasia with Mickey Mouse

Great gift idea!

If you're a fan of coloring (or you know a little one who is), you should also checkout Frozen coloring pages, Tangled coloring pages, Moana coloring pages, and Coco coloring pages.



MY QUICK REVIEW

The Thomas Kinkade Disney coloring book gets a recommendation all its own, because if you’re a fan of his work, you will adore the way this adult coloring book allows you to channel your inner Kinkade.

It couldn’t have been an easy task for the illustrators to convert a complex Thomas Kinkade Disney painting into a straight-forward line drawing, but they did so beautifully.

In 63-pages, almost every classic Disney movie is included, giving ample opportunities to color favorite Disney characters.

The pages are bound together by glue and can be cut out individually if desired. (I personally like keeping all of my work in the book.)

When you open the book and lay it flat, the Kinkade original is in full-color on the left, and your black/white design to color is on the right. This makes it easy to look at the picture of the real painting while doing your own coloring.

Note: certain markers will bleed through the pages. Do a small test before diving in. Colored pencils work especially well.

When I was reading the product reviews, several people suggested these would be amazing birthday or holiday gifts for Disney lovers. I completely agree.

Best Thomas Kinkade Disney Cross Stitch

1. Fantasia Thomas Kinkade Cross Stitch
Our Recommendation for 2018



MY QUICK REVIEW

If you’re serious about Disney and serious about cross stitch, this is the Thomas Kinkade Disney Cross Stitch that I would recommend. Probably not the cross stitch to do if you’re a first timer.

However, thanks to the high level of detail in the patterns, you can get a lot of satisfaction out of your finished product.

The package includes 28-count cotton Aida, cotton floss, decorative thread, needle, chart and instructions.

MY QUICK REVIEW

Remember: I'm supplying my recommendations on this page of Thomas Kinkade cross stitch options for those that are more experienced with this craft.

When finished, the Cinderella rendition will be a beautiful work of art to cherish.

Just note, this project takes a lot of time and patience. But it's worth it!

 The finished size will end up at 12" x 16". Packaging comes with Aida, floss, thread, needle, chart and instructions.

MY QUICK REVIEW

Since Beauty and the Beast is my favorite, I had to include Belle and her friends from Thomas Kinkade's Disney Dreams collection. I love the vibrant variety of colors in this delightful Disney cross-stitch.

Finished size is 5"x7". Again, this is a gorgeous pattern but is not ideal for a first-time cross stitch project. Intermediate stitcher, however, should have no problem.

Hope you liked those options!
That is probably the most comprehensive list of Thomas Kinkade Disney reviews and recommendations you’ll find anywhere online.

My 3 Favorite Thomas Kinkade Paintings

There are a lot of items (hundreds) in the the Thomas Kinkade Disney collection.
Here are my three absolute favorite paintings.

1) Mickey & Minnie Mouse at Sweetheart Cafe


Best Thomas Kinkade Disney Painting: Mickey and Minnie Mouse Sweethearts Cafe

I just love a good romance, and Mickey and Minnie’s relationship has always been a favorite. 

When Mickey brings all the trappings of romance in a delightful Parisian-esque setting, he steals Minnie’s heart and mine at the same time. 

Thomas Kinkade Studios is famous for little details and hidden secrets.  Here are a few pieces of trivia that make me love this painting more.

  • In the painting is a tribute to “Mickey’s Follies” – a short film by Walt Disney made in 1929 where Mickey first declared his feelings for Minnie Mouse.
  • The chocolatier shop is called “Clarabelle’s”, named after Clarabelle Cow
  • Notice the other couple enjoying a romantic dinner inside the cafe?
