Baby Gyro

Baby versions of the Disney Characters (known oddly enough as Disney Babies) have been around for almost 25 years now helping sell baby clothes, baby furniture, baby bedding and anything else you might need for a baby. They've also appeared in a number of books geared towards the under 4 set. Usually the Disney Babies consist of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto. Of all the other Disney characters out there, it's kind of strange to find Gyro Gearloose presented in his younger years. In the 1991 book, Safety First, you'll find Baby Mickey along with his good buddy Baby Gyro getting ready for a day at the park. It's odd that they chose Gyro Gearloose for this story, as he's an inventor and yet there are no inventions, gizmos or gadgets in the book.

Here we see Baby Gyro and Baby Mickey, apparently home without adult supervision, enjoying some delicious scalding hot soup. Careful guys, that soup is hot! Always wait for a grown up to fill your bowl with soup! grown ups!? OK, go ahead!

Here Baby Gyro and Baby Mickey head off to the park in the big city all by themselves. At least they remember to stay on the sidewalk and always use the crosswalk!
