DISNEYLAND 50TH ANNIVERSARY SMALL WORLD ANIMATED CLOCK. This ultra rare item was created by Disney artist Jody Daily for Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary 2005. It is a Limited Edition of 1500 and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Disney as well as a description card. So there’s alot going on here. There are three different mechanical movements. The first is a battery operated quartz clock in the center. Apparently it is removable so you can replace the battery. I’ve never taken it out but would assume it works just fine. Second is the music and facade animation. Just wind the gold windmill on the right side, like a music box, the Small World song plays and the facade animations (sun and hourglass) spin as well as the flags atop the facade turn. Third is a battery powered animation. In conjunction with the music and facade animations the lower doors automatically open and a set of six, three on each side, Mary Blair inspired dolls rotate out from the facade, circle back into the facade and the doors shut. Just like the attraction at Disneyland! This is really a fantastic piece! All the animations work. All the spires are intact, nothing broken, no dings that I can see. The flags, although they still attatch to their posts, are the only flaw. The delicate thin base of each flag did break. Please see the photo. Also the lower door on the right where the dolls emerge from, gets hung up. It is not broken, simply a manufacturing flaw that can easily be fix. The door is just a little high and gets hung up on the ledge. It just needs to be sanded down a bit and it will close normally. I just chose not to do it. Cut and paste the link below to see a video clip of the clock. Also included are the original instructions. Please look at the pictures of the actual item.
