I loved the feeling I had when I left the theater after saying this movie and in the tradition of the "new new classics" (as I like to affectionately call them being my childhood was filled with the "new classics" like Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Lion King, Beauty & the Beast to differentiate from the "original classics" like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White). In this world it is so great to have a movie that any child can relate to-- that can appeal to a kid no matter their gender or ethnicity-- because then we empower ALL kids and that is what childhood should be about!
We've been slowly reviewing some great Disney products and I thought a little roundup was needed (considering this year, at our house, Santa is going to be saying "Mo! Mo! Mo!" as he leaves presents under our tree)!
There are multiple Moana dolls out but the Disney Store version takes the cake! she has an oar with her and directions for turning her box into a boat! You can nab the doll pictured above from the Disney Stores or website, and they also sell a deluxe singing version!
The novelized version of the film was beautiful crafted- complete with a canvas cover and tattoos! We featured it in our most recent book round-up along with the beautiful Disney Art of Coloring Moana book that might just be my favorite sample I have ever received!
And, of course, we can't look at the best of Moana merch without another shoutout to the beautiful new line from LeSportSac! Enter to win this great bag starting tomorrow!
