To celebrate the launch of Cinderella on DVD we were sent really lovely delivery from Jakks Pacific – a Cinderella Doll, Enchanted Waltz Light Up Slippers and a Fairy Godmother Wand and Combs Set. As soon as the parcel arrived I knew LP would be in her element, and with her Birthday just a few days later I thought we could have an early Birthday treat watching the movie and playing with her new toys.
The afternoon we chose was one full of thunder and rain outside – the kind of afternoon that’s only fit to get your PJs on, watch a movie and have a snuggle. The perfect afternoon to indulge in Cinderella!
LP’s light up slippers were a little big for her but she didn’t seem to mind. I was impressed that they had an adjustable band at the back to make them fit various size feet and keep them in place too. The heels lit up when LP walked around in them and they matched the slippers from the Cinderella movie perfectly.
The Fairy Godmother Wand has a button to press to make it light up and LP was in her element casting spells and running around the room telling me that she was being the godmother. She also tried to put spells on the Cinderella doll but that didn’t seem to work so well! The doll is well made and lovely to look at with beautiful clothes and hair – I think she’ll be a firm companion for LP.
This was the first time I had seen Cinderella and I had heard great things about it. I am always a bit nervous of any live action remake of Disney movies as I love the animated classics so much but I needn’t have worried – Cinderella was great to watch for both me and LP. It had a really good story and great morale undertones, just like the original. LP now firmly believes that all she needs to do is have courage and be kind – I have to agree. I don’t think she can go far wrong with that aim in life.
