What are vinyls? I would like to have a collection, but I don't know what they are. Can someone please explain to me?
Google and Disney store can help - KAA

From Wiki "Disney Vinylmation is a brand of 3", 1.5" and 9" vinyl toys sold at Disney theme parks and other locations. The toys all have a common shape (that of Mickey Mouse) but have different themed markings, colors and patterns. The first figures were introduced in November 2008.
Trading of figures is officially encouraged and practiced at Disney locations in a fashion similar to Disney pin trading. There are designated places where guests may trade figures with cast members.
Vinylmation figures are sold in sealed packaging. The purchaser does not know which figure they are buying until they have opened it. Each figure belongs to a series and all of the figures in a series are printed on the packaging for that series and the series comes in a large box . Each series has one unknown figure, termed the chaser. Some come with cards, stickers or another figure to make a set. In addition to being a mystery figure the chaser is also the rarest figure in each series. Limited edition nine-inch figures are also sold and these are visible without opening the packaging. There is also a 1.5-inch Vinylmation Jr. size.
There are various series to choose from. Park series vinyls feature designs relating to Disney theme park attractions and characters. Urban series vinyls have designs that are more open-ended than Park vinyls as they do not need to relate to Disney or its theme parks. There are other series such as the Muppets which group together designs based on characters. Similarly, there is a series for Toy Story characters and a Star Wars series. There are also limited edition sets such as Condiments and Billiards." - Polkadobo

Vinyls are an ancient medium for delivery music to your home stereo. They have been "replaced" by cassette tapes, compact discs, and digital music players but still manage to stick around due to exceptional sound quality.
