Hello! I’m Crystal from Yasumi Designs! Not quite your average healthy living blog…as in not quite healthy and not quite a blog. However, I am an avid runDisney fan. I recently received the new runDisney medal holder as an anniversary gift from my husband, and offered to guest post a review for Heather.
When I first heard about this medal holder, I was instantly curious. I had been wanting a holder for all my runDisney medals, but was unsure about this one. Luckily, I didn’t have to make that decision since my husband ordered it for me.
The first thing I noticed upon taking the holder out of the box, was that it didn’t look quite like the photo online:
Notice that there are not the extra “hang bar” slots between the bars like in the online photo? Even though the description online says it can hold 6 medals, the photo makes it seem like you can put 13. Clearly, you can *maybe* put 8.
I found a random wall to temporarily mount my new holder to see how it held up:
I was able to get 8 medals on, which was my 2013 runDisney haul. I’d need a hanger for each year at this rate…
I do have to say that the two different surfaces they used for the “run” and “Disney” created a pretty cool effect.
I wasn’t sure how I felt about having all the medals hanging at the same level and clanking against each other, so I tried to stagger them:
An improvement, but the lanyards are not neatly arranged on top. Perhaps something other than paper clips would work better.
I think this is an extremely cute, well-made medal holder. My main concern is that it is WAY TOO SMALL. If I had run any more runDisney races this year, they would not have fit. I hope to see a revamp of this in the future with the capability to hold a lot more medals. Most runDisney fanatics are bling-chasers, and want to proudly display their achievements. This official runDisney medal holder will definitely have a home on my wall, but I will be sure to leave room for additional holders, as I may need one for every year.
Thanks for reading!
