Dozens of expectant mothers and families gathered Wednesday at the Americana at Brand to celebrate the opening of the first-ever Disney Baby store. A cast of popular characters from the famed Burbank studio joined actress and television host Alison Sweeney and Disney Consumer Products President Bob Chapek to unveil the new store. “Disney is all about life's magical moments,” Chapek said, “and maybe there's no more greater magical moment than the birth of a child.” The company teamed up with Operation Shower, a nonprofit organization that supports military families with members who are deployed, to throw a baby shower for military moms-to-be, complete with games, prizes and live music.

Employees obediently trooped behind group leaders, dressed in bright orange vests emblazoned with yellow Mickey Mouse faces and carrying placards printed with the names of different Disney characters.

DOWNTOWN — Piles of once neatly folded and stacked sweaters were strewn about the ground in wrinkled clumps at Mervyn’s department store early Friday morning, signs of a pre-dawn shopping rush that had thousands of consumers sifting for holiday bargains. With Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday already fading from memory, area retailers were banking on hopes that consumers were ready to jump headlong into the gift-giving winter season. And to coax buyers out of their food-induced slumber before the sun rose, some Glendale Galleria stores offered hundreds of “doorbusters” and one-day-only discounts starting as early as midnight.

Furby - the strange-but-cute fluffy animal with giant eyes from the 90s - is back. In 2012, it joins giant punching gloves, gangly dolls and, of course, the latest gaming stations. These were just some of the items to pop up at a retail forecasting event at the Glendale Galleria mega mall on Tuesday. Interactive Furby dolls are expected to make a return this holiday season alongside merchandise from the new hit animated movie “Wreck-It Ralph,” which will likely be in the minds of many children as they fill out their Christmas wish lists.

DOWNTOWN — It looked like a typical evening at the Glendale Galleria. It was dark out, traffic in the parking lot was heavy and inside the mall, droves of shoppers scoured the stores for deals. The only difference was — it was 5 a.m. A little cold, a lot of darkness and the heavy Thanksgiving meal from the evening before couldn't stop shoppers from making their way to the mall early Friday morning for what has infamously become known as Black Friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

GLENDALE — After three highly publicized recalls by Mattel this summer involving thousands of Chinese-made, lead-tainted toys, the Walt Disney Co. and Toys ‘R’ Us both announced steps to independently test their products. “We will enhance our compliance process,” Disney spokeswoman Nidia Tatalovich said. “This sends a message to [manufacturers] that says, ‘We are looking over your shoulder.’” Previously, Disney would license the production of toys to manufacturers, which would submit documentation back to Disney based on the toys’ safety standards.
