The Disney Smoothie Maker and Disney Popcorn Popper have special safety features and offer simple, step-by-step instructions. The Disney Smoothie Maker and Disney Popcorn Popper provide parents with a great opportunity to introduce kids to the concept of reading a recipe, calculating basic measurements and following basic kitchen safety rules. The popcorn popper makes five quarts of fresh, delicious popcorn, which is large enough for an entire family to share. A pre-portioned lid measures corn kernels for calculating the desired serving amounts. The clear design lets everyone watch the popcorn popping.

Manufactured and distributed by Back to Basics, the Disney Smoothie Maker is red and has a capacity of 40 ounces. It features a quick-mixing stir stick, mess-free dispensing valve, safety locks and is whimsically designed, with Disney-style non-slip rubber "feet" at the base.

The Disney Popcorn Popper has a capacity of five quarts, features a non-stick coated popping surface, a cover that flips to become a serving bowl, a motorized stirring rod, heat-resistant handles and base, and Mickey's white non-slip rubber "feet." Both items are available at a suggested retail price of US$39.99 each.
