British singer and presenter Alesha Dixon has unveiled Disney Junior’s biggest ever Christmas tree which is made entirely out of stuffed animals.
The Christmas Tree is 14 meters tall and is placed at St. Pancras International train station. Dixon’s daughter had the honor of placing the last stuffed toy onto the tree to complete it. She had chosen a soft toy version of Disney’s popular character Doc McStuffins.
The tree is made of about 2000 stuffed toys and it is not a simple stand-alone item. Every four minutes the tree comes to life, has artificial snow falling on the ground. Then it dissolves to keep the train station clean.
The Disney Junior Christmas tree will be at St. Pancras Station in London until January 4th 2016, so there will be plenty of time to visit it. All of the toys used to make the tree will be donated to the charity organization KIDS. It helps disabled children, young people and their families.
“Christmas is always a magical time at Disney Junior and this year we wanted to bring the holidays to life for people of all ages. St Pancras is not only one of the busiest stations in the county, it’s also one of the most beautiful. We couldn’t think of a better setting to house our magnificent soft toy creation which will be surprising and delighting families over the next two months. We’re also thrilled to partner with a fantastic charity like KIDS to ensure that these toys find loving homes after the last snowflake has fallen,” said David Levine, general manager, Disney Channels UK & Ireland to ToyNews.
Dixon is also pretty thrilled about the event. “What better way to launch the festive season than unveiling this unique and enchanting Disney Christmas tree. It’s such a special time of year and I would encourage families to come down and share in the magic of Christmas at St Pancras”, she said.
