Princess of the Month~ The Little Mermaid #DreamBigPrincess {Giveaway}

I am feeling really old now.  The Little Mermaid Disney film was first released in 1989! As I have been digging up info on the stories of these princesses it’s been really interesting to learn along.  For example, The Little Mermaid was first written by Danish writer, Hans Christensen in 1867 and released on April.7.   I am researching every Princess I get thanks to the Hasbro team and if you’re curious about Rapunzel, you can find the original story and info I found in April’s theme here .

The Little Mermaid, longing for the prince and an eternal soul, visits the Sea Witch in a dangerous part of the ocean. The witch willingly helps her by selling her a potion that gives her legs in exchange for her tongue and beautiful voice and warns that once she becomes a human, she will never be able to return to the sea.

Now the ending is quite different than the original and has been up for some debate.  I wonder if there will be a Disney cartoon about the “Daughters of Air” as Ariel becomes one.   In the original ending, of the Den lille havfrue it was made to scare children into good behaviour.  You can read the original Little Mermaid <— and translate automatically if you’re using Google Chrome.  But below is the excerpt from the ending.  Oh those little children who were read the original. It’s very interesting how stories have changed and endings to accommodate a gentler story and a happy ever after with their Prince.   But check it out below.  If you were a little child would be scarred?  I don’t think so but it is fascinating to discover storytelling in the late 1800’s.

Too earlier we could get there!” whispered one. “Invisible soar we entered the man’s house where there are children, and every day we find a good child, who makes his parents joy and deserves their love, shorten God our Probation. The child does not know, when we fly through the room, and we must then joy smile about it when taken for a year from the three hundred, but we see a naughty or a wicked child, then we must cry tears of sorrow, and each tear down one day to our Probation!

In 2000, Ariel became an official member of the newly launched Disney Princess line and as we celebrate the end of May with this months princess theme being Ariel we have some great bath time goodies for you to enter to win.  Disney Princesses are some of the most iconic characters in the world. Many of their stories have been carried down from generation to generation, and are still resonating with girls today. However, even though these stories are being passed along, children’s play patterns are changing. Today’s consumers are looking for more fluidity in their play, and the opportunity to take charge of their storytelling.  In discovering this, Hasbro has worked closely with Disney to develop a new Disney Princess line that gives kids ways to do that while staying true to each Princess’s unique attributes and story.

My twins have had so much fun in the bath playing with Ariel and her friends.  The Disney Princess Spin and Swish is fun and entertaining for children 3 yrs old and up.  

B5836_pkgOurs sits in the edge of the bathtub, I would love it more if it had a suction so I can put it on the tiles of the wall for even more bath time fun but this is still a great bath or beach toy none the less.  The Little Kingdom Ariel’s Castle is going to be loved by your little one.  This is 4yrs and up as it comes with little tiny accessories to decorate.
