Avid Swarovski crystal collectors may be eager to get their orders in for a new Swarovski Peter Pan Collection.  The items in this collection include Swarovski Peter Pan, Swarovski Tinker Bell, and a star-shaped title plaque for this collection.

Disney fans may be equally excited to see this new collection collaboration between Swarovski and Disney.  While the Peter Pan collection is the newest, Swarovski has produced other collections cooperatively with Disney:  Swarovski Lion King, Swarovski Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Swarovski Bambi and Friends, Swarovski Winnie the Pooh and Friends, and others.

Swarovski also produced Disney limited edition crystal figurines:  Swarovski Tinker Bell in 2008, Swarovski Mickey Sorcerer in 2009, Swarovski Pinocchio in 2010, and most recently Swarovski Dumbo in 2011.

The Swarovski Peter Pan and Swarovski Tinker Bell feature accents in Olivine (green) crystal, with other colorful effects.  The three crystal figurines in the Swarovski Peter Pan collection can be view on the Swarovski site.  The site further states that the release dates for the figurines is in early March, 2011.

Swarovski Dumbo figurines have been  produced by Swarovski or using Swarovski pave components since 1987.  The rarest Swarovksi Dumbo figurines are those  made  in 1987 and 1988.  These Dumbo elephants were made in several variations.  Some crystal figurines were made with larger ears and some with smaller ears..  Some crystal figurines were made with frosted tusks and others were made without any tusks.  While the ears and tusks varied within the two years of production, they all were all seated in a teddy-bear-like position.  These limited edition Dumbo elephants were made with and without a Swarovski logo only available through the Arribas Brothers stores in the Walt Disney theme parks.

So, all Swarovski crystal fanatics….if you like the new 2011 Dumbo and wish to purchase some of the previous ones….Crystal Exchange America has a number of different retired Swarovski Dumbo figurines available for purchase in their online store.

Swarovski has provided its SCS members with a sneak peak of the 2011 Limited Edition Dumbo. Swarovski Limited Edition Dumbo is the fourth limited edition of the Swarovski Disney line.

The first Swarovski Disney Limited Edition was Tinkerbell in 2008. The second Swarovski Disney Limited Edition was Sorcerer Mickey in 2009. Mickey Sorcerer was available in two sizes, large and small. The third Swarovski Disney Limited Edition was Pinocchio 2010.

The 2011 Limited Edition Dumbo is not the only Swarovski Dumbo has been produced. Swarovski made crystal Dumbo figurines for the Arribas stores in Disney World and Disneyland in 1987 and 1988. These Dumbo elephants looked teddy-bear-like in the design. Some variations of Dumbo even had frosted tusks. In 1990, Swarovski made another Dumbo figurine wearing a clear hat for Arribas with large flying ears and black eyes. The 1990 Dumbo was produced for only one year. In 1993, Swarovski made another Dumbo figurine wearing a frosted hat for Arribas with large flying ears and baby blue eyes. This Dumbo with blue eyes was available for approximately three years.
