For the most part, Disney is pretty good about making adults feel welcome and serving up magic for all ages. Particularly during the Disney Store's Twice Upon a Year Sale, when it takes up to 60% off. (Prices are as marked. Shipping starts at $5.95, but orders of $75 or more bag free shipping via coupon code "SHIPMAGIC".)
For unknown reasons though, some really cool clothing, accessories, and toys are made exclusively for kids, and we've rounded up eight such items. But don't worry — we've also included gifs to make the disappointment from their unattainability easier to swallow.
8 Disney Items That'll Make You Wish You Were a Kid Again
To Infinity and Beyond
Buzz Lightyear Light-Up Gloves for $20.99 ($7 off)
If you had child-sized hands, you could vanquish imaginary bad guys with the cool laser built right into these gloves. (Note: To maintain movie accuracy, it's not a laser. It's a little light bulb that blinks.)
Disney Girls' Descendants Wedge Sneakers for $9.99 ($15 off)
Sorry, these glittery height-boosting shoes won't fit on your giant adult feet. It's understandable if that makes you feel rotten to the core.
The Dark Side
Disney Boys' Star Wars PJ Pals for $7.99 (a low by $12)
Darth Vader and the Storm Troopers are some of the coolest looking characters in history. But if you're older than 8, these pajamas simply aren't going to work out for you.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Bling
Disney Cinderella Costume Accessory Set for $9.99 ($10 off)
Yes, that would be an awesome statement necklace to add to your jewelry collection. If only the scale were appropriate for grownups.
Disney Dumbo Hooded Towel for Baby for $14.99 ($10 off)
It's hard to think of anything more snuggly than wrapping up in this plush velour towel. But unless you're 3 feet tall, it doesn't matter, because you'll never get to experience it.
Disney Girls' Elsa Costume for $24.99 (at least $20 off)
Even if you despise Frozen, even if you hope you never hear "Let It Go" again, even if you don't typically go for iridescent attire, you have to admit it — you're a little bit jealous of Elsa's amazing gown. This official Disney version is the closest you'll ever get to a real sparkly ice dress, except it's made just for people born this millennium.
Star Spangled Man
Disney Kids' Captain America Hat for $7.99 ($7 off)
Unless you have a freakishly tiny head, it's probably best to give up your dreams of sporting this hat. Which is too bad, because it keeps you warm and makes you feel like you could knock out Adolf Hitler over 200 times.
Happiest Place on Earth
Disney Princess Light-Up Castle Play Set for $49.99 ($40 off)
Okay, you might actually be able to get away with owning this more glam version of a Barbie house (complete with 10 princesses to live in it). Because if you can't afford your own actual castle home, this is the next best thing.
