Over the next few months expect the Jessica Rabbit pin activity to pick up quite a bit. Like it or not, pin collecting is very much all the rage. It's still a mystery as to just who is on Jessica's side in the Pin Department over at Disney and why there is all this sudden interest in her - especially in pin form - but I'm not going to complain.
Just released today are the Jessica Artist Proof sets of the 6 pin set that was released a few months ago. Each 3 pin set is sold separately and there is only one of each set available.
A NEW design also released today is the Jessica and Roger Valentine 2005 pin. This is only Limited to 100 pins, is gold finished and oversized. Jessica opens her Valentine Card with Roger popping out of it to give her a big kiss - against a heart background. Sadly, this is not a Buy It Now pin, it's a regular bid. It's priced at $18 now but expect that to change as time drags on for this 10 day auction.
Coming soon is the Jessica and Roger Ski Lodge pin. Jessica and Roger take time out at a Ski Lodge, sitting on a big couch with their skis nearby, having a warm cup of hot chocolate. Unfortunately Roger must have had an accident and is wrapped in bandages, but Jessica is in a fetching new Skiing outfit.
There is also an Andy Warhol inspired Jessica, with four panels of her in different colors and features glittering dresses on the way.
Last is a new Jessica sitting pin. This pin goes right along side of the 6 pin set released months ago and looks like it might be a continuation of that set. Jessica is sitting in a glittered dress in front of a pink square.
These other pins look to also be only limited to 100 and will be up for bid - not Buy It Now. Let the frenzy begin.
Also, there will be two Jessica pins released at the Chip and Dales Wild Wild West Pin Adventure on February 3rd, a Jessica Lanyard and pin set released in Disneyland Paris in March and a New Park Ranger Jessica released at the Disney Road Trip event on April 30th.

For a short time on DisneyDeals.com you can bid on the never released official Disney Jessica Rabbit costume! There are a few various sizes up for bid and indications state that this costume was originally planned to be released in Disneyland, but was not for an undisclosed reason.
Another new item can be found in the World of Disney in New York City. It's a black long sleeve shirt with a nice image of Jessica crossing the city streets with Mickey Mouse himself behind the wheel of a cab right in back of her. This is a first since Amblin and Disney both own the rights to the Roger Rabbit characters; there haven't been any items with other Disney characters together with the Roger characters, at least not since 1988. It looks at though it's only a woman's shirt but you might want to check on that. Jessica's dress has glittery accents to it and the whole design has an airbrushed look to it. Worth picking up!!!!
Jessica is also appearing on little girls clothing and in particular there is a shirt available in Disney World of Jessica in her Hawaiian outfit on the beach.
