Discover the Magic Behind Our New Disney Collection
The magic of Disney has a way of staying with us whether we’re 5 or 55. Chances are, you remember your favorite princess, first trip to Disney World, and best Disney movie moment. It’s only natural that you want to share these good memories with your baby. Here at HALO, we’ve partnered with Disney to create some exclusive prints for the sleep sack swaddles and wearable blankets.
We started with using Mickey and Minnie as inspiration and just launched our new Finding Nemo collection. Each print features hand-drawn elements, character cuteness, and trending designs. This way, your baby can ‘just keep sleeping,’ and you can make bedtime ‘totally rad’ alongside your favorite Finding Nemo characters.
Take a look at our baby sleep sacks below and find the print that brings back your Disney nostalgia.
See How We Make Our Magic
The magic of Disney wouldn’t be complete without seeing our idea go from a spark to a swaddle. We chatted with our designer, Lauren Hauck, to dive deeper into her inspiration for the Disney collection. Scroll on to see how this collection was born.
Teaming Up With Disney
When we partnered with Disney, we knew this would be an opportunity to work closely with Disney’s design team. Our initial idea was to create a Mickey and Minnie-inspired collection, but with a modern twist. We looked through Disney’s vast collection of artwork, and we were taken by some of their prints. Disney designers had reinterpreted the classic Mickey Mouse into contemporary geometric shapes.
Upon seeing what Disney designers could do, we explored different color palettes and added a Minnie Mouse. We loved taking the classic allure of Disney, then giving it a midcentury modern twist. The result was Disney sleep sacks that were subtle yet whimsical.
Finding Our Nemo Collection
After playing with some classic Disney characters, we knew that we wanted to explore the bright colors, quirky characters, and stunning animations in Finding Nemo. I mean, what new mom doesn’t relate to Marlin’s protectiveness and Dory’s kindness.
As a designer, as I was rewatching the movie, I noticed all of the little details in each scene. Everything from the hues of blue in the ocean to the lifelike coral. These details inspired me to start creating two prints for the HALO sleep sacks, Great Barrier Reef and Tie-Dye.
Before my inspiration turned into baby sleep sacks, I started sketching them out on paper.
Great Barrier Reef
For this print, I handpainted the Finding Nemo characters and then included the coral at the beginning of the movie. I wanted to capture how playful this film is through these two very prominent and fun elements.
Disney Pixar did a magical job of capturing the interplay of light and dark in the ocean, so I wanted to capitalize on these stunning hues of blue with the Tie-Dye print.
