Do you love for Disney products? If so then Disney chess set pieces are for you.
The Walt Disney Company was founded back in 1923 by brothers Walt and Roy Disney, then under the name of Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio.
It was later named Walt Disney Productions at the end of the 1920's, before taking on its current name in 1986.
Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks created the characters of Mickey and Minnie Mouse in 1928. Minnie was designed to be a girlfriend or wife for Mickey and is featured with him in several shorts from this period.
The most memorable feature with Minnie, Mickey and his nemesis, Black Pete was shown in the cartoon about the gaucho in Argentina; in it Minnie is portrayed as a dance hall girl who is rescued from Black Pete by Mickey Mouse.
Today, it is one of the largest producers of films in the world. From the creation of Mickey Mouse to the present, this company has given the world a large number of characters to love. There are several types of memorabilia available for all the characters and movies created by Disney, including the Disney Chess Set.
Disney Heroes and Villains Chess Set
The unique Disney Chess Set features characters from some of the most popular movies offered by the company. Instead of playing with plain black and white pieces, you can choose to be play as the heroes or the villains.
The hero's side features characters from 101 Dalmatians, Hercules, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Aladdin.
The villains are derived from some of the same films, with the exception of Captain Hook from Peter Pan. The game board features blue and purple squares, which gives it a more animated, kid friendly appearance.
Playing the game using the Disney Chess Set has been found to be enjoyable for adults as well as children. Many people have used this set to teach their kids how to play the game of chess. It may be easier for children to learn from this type of set, as they can relate to the characters used as game pieces.
Also, the name of each piece (rook, bishop, queen, etc) is printed on the base of each character, so kids can learn the true game pieces of chess while playing with this set. This will also help them as they transition to the regular board and pieces when they are older.
