You've heard of fan art, but what about fan MERCHANDISING art? That's just geeking out on a whole other level! ...and also wasting time on another level. But whatever.
I've always kind of liked the unique design that all of the Disney park characters have, and I also like buying STUFF! And if there's one thing the Disney parks like, it's selling STUFF!
Throw all of these things together, and you get the Park Pals.
I just did the main five for now, plus Tinkerbell because everyone loves Tinkerbell these days... and I wanted to do at least one "face" character.
