I cannot be alone when I say I AM SO EXCITED FOR THE RELEASE OF BEAUTY AND THE BEAST! Yes the remake of the classic Disney film is released today and we already have our tickets booked to see it tomorrow morning. To celebrate its release, Jakks Pacific sent us a bungle of gorgeous new Beauty and the Beast toys.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that the new film is not fully animated as the old one and stars the rather fantastic Emma Watson as the legendary Disney princess Belle. Beauty and the Beast is one of my girls favourites and she is P2’s favourite princess by a mile. She so desperately wanted to see her when we went to Disneyland Paris but sadly she is something of an enigma. The new toy range reflects the makeover all the iconic characters have had in the film, most notably Mrs Potts and Chip.
I love that Mrs Potts eyes close as though she is blinding when you “pour” a cup of tea from her. Chip also wobbles when you place him down and of course has his chip indented on him. The set has an RRP of £19.99.
My girls love having dolls to play with so this beautiful Belle doll was a winner with them.
Belle is a 14inch doll wearing the Tree of Life pendant from the new film. She wears shoes meaning she can stand independently and her trademark yellow dress has been updated to reflect the new film. She has long brown locks and is perfectly for little ones to play with and love. My girls absolutely love her and she’s already had numerous trips to nursery!
Without the enchanted rose, there would be no story so the Enchanted Rose jewellery box (RRP £19.99) comes complete with a collectible gold feather ring that you can place in the drawer. When you open the drawer, the rose opens and lights up and plays the gorgeous music of the signature sound of the film. I definitely will not admit to opening and closing it just to hear the music, no not me!
If you want to look at these toys in action, my girls are on hand to show you with their little video of them playing with their new Beauty and the Beast toys which, along with the film, are out now. It really is such a lovely range and at a really reasonable price, one all Disney fans will love.
