Singer, TV presenter and Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon has unveiled the world’s biggest Disney Junior Christmas Tree, created entirely from Disney Store soft toys.

The tree is housed at St Pancras International until January 4th 2016, and every four minutes, snowflakes will fall from the top of the tree, specifically designed to dissolve as they reach the ground without leaving a trace.

Dixon placed placing the last toy on the tree, which is made up of over 2,000 individual soft toys of children’s favourite Disney characters.

“Christmas is always a magical time at Disney Junior and this year we wanted to bring the holidays to life for people of all ages," said David Levine, general manager, Disney Channels UK & Ireland.

"St Pancras is not only one of the busiest stations in the county, it’s also one of the most beautiful. We couldn’t think of a better setting to house our magnificent soft toy creation which will be surprising and delighting families over the next two months. We’re also thrilled to partner with a fantastic charity like KIDS to ensure that these toys find loving homes after the last snowflake has fallen.”

Dixon added: “I am so excited to add the last toy to the magical Disney Junior Christmas tree. I picked Doc McStuffins, from my daughter’s favourite Disney show and can’t wait to bring her to see the tree and falling snow inside the station. 

"What better way to launch the festive season than unveiling this unique and enchanting Disney Christmas tree. It’s such a special time of year and I would encourage families to come down and share in the magic of Christmas at St Pancras.”

After the tree is taken down, the 2,000 soft toys provided by The Disney Store will be donated to KIDS, a leading charity which cares for disabled children, young people and their families.
