You might not know it from looking at him, but Mickey Mouse is about to turn 90 years old. November 18th marks the 90-year anniversary of the iconic Disney character's first appearance in the animated short film Steamboat Willie. Since his debut at the helm of that little steamboat, Mickey Mouse has gone on to appear in over 100 more cartoon shorts and has become a symbol for Disney. With all he's accomplished in the past 90 years, Disney is honoring him in 2018, and that's exactly why so many brands are releasing limited edition Mickey-themed products.
In the 90 days leading up to Mickey's 90th birthday, food and kitchen brands will be rolling out their own Mickey products and collaborations in honor of the mouse's big day. Some foods will come in specially designed packaging featuring Mickey while others will simply be shaped like the mouse. The collabs even include Mickey-themed appliances and cookware.

Smeg, an Italian manufacturer of luxury home appliances, has released a limited-edition FAB28 fridge to mark 90 years since Mickey Mouse's creation. The refrigerator features a classic drawing of the iconic Disney character. Unlike many of the other products on this list, the Mickey FAB28 will be extremely difficult for fans to get their hands on. Only 90 fridges were produced for the European market. Still, it's fun to admire from our computer screens.
