Jamie received an all expense paid trip to the Disney Planes premiere, as well as The Little Mermaid event, however all opinions are her own.
It seems as if I should know about a new movie coming out just from watching the previews of another movie, or seeing a commercial on TV, but I’ve realized that more and more, that’s not the case. I’m usually learning about a new movie just by seeing the latest consumer products in my favorite stores.
With the re-release of The Little Mermaid coming to Blu-Ray on October 1st, stores are busy adding related products to their shelves. Items like plush dolls, Ariel costumes, tank tops, and even makeup are available for the biggest Little Mermaid fans.
While in Hollywood last week, our group of bloggers had the opportunity to attend a dinner put on by Disney that showcased all of the consumer products related to The Little Mermaid and even learn a little more about them, as well as where they can be found.
Although there are so many products you can get your hands on to celebrate the re-release of the movie, I wanted to share my favorites with you.
Under the Sea Surprise Ariel was what struck me as the cutest toy at our dinner. I thought it was so neat when put in the water, her fins light up, which creates a magical rainbow of color. This Ariel also sings and says sounds and phrases from popular movie moments. You can find this product at a retail price of $29.99.
The Little Mermaid Plush Collection will likely be a favorite for many. This adorable collection features all of your favorite characters from the film, including Ariel, Prince Eric, Ursula, Flounder, Sebastian, Max, Scuttle, and Flotsam and Jetsam. I was wishing I could have taken this Ursula plush doll home with her eels. I know even my boys would love to have them. These products range in prices from $9.50 to $19.95.
This Ariel tank top from the Ariel Tee and Tank Collection at Hot Topic is what made me realize that even I can fall in love with Ariel all over again. This movie is not just for kids and I expect many of my peers who saw this movie for the first time as a child to have their mermaid love resurface with the re-release. These tank tops can be found at Hot Topic at a retail price of $9.00.
As a step-mom of a 14 year old girl, I know what kind of interests girls her age have and I’m so glad Disney and Sephora have thought of them, too! You can now find this Disney Reigning Beauties Ariel Collection on the shelves at Sephora.
This collection features an assortment of color cosmetics, a signature fragrance and princess-worthy accessories that are inspired by the world under the sea and the bold determination of Ariel. The colors are just beautiful and I can’t wait to see my big girl use them for herself. I might even have to invest in these beautiful colors for my own use.
With the release of all of these products, one thing’s for sure! There is truly something for everyone. From little girls to big girls and even something for the boys in there, it will be easy to jump in on The Little Mermaid mania as the October 1st Blu-Ray release inches closer.
