When Alice was a toddler she wasn’t too sure about dressing up costumes and it wasn’t until she started preschool and saw others doing it that her love for it began. Whereas Holly has always loved it and would often spend all day at home in a costume. They love going to our dressing up box and finding a costume to wear for their current game.
Alice has been complaining that she is growing out of all our costumes, so when shopDisney got in touch and asked if the girls would like to get dressed up in their favourite characters, Alice couldn’t wait. With us recently watching Toy Story 4, it came as no surprise when Holly wanted to be Buzz Lightyear. She has been desperate to be him! Alice took her time, looking through the different costumes and decided on Merida from Brave. Which was a great choice.
I’ve never seen the girls so excited when they arrived, along with some lovely accessories to get them into character. Alice’s Merida costume is the most beautiful costume I’ve seen and Alice looks gorgeous in it.
Of course she wouldn’t be Merida without her bow and arrow. This archery set is great and can be worn around the waist or on the shoulder. It comes with four arrows and a bow. She really looks the part.
Alice couldn’t wait to try it out and has tried archery before, so she knew what to do.
Holly is the cutest Buzz Lightyear I’ve seen and she is the happiest little girl in her costume. Along with the costume, she was sent Buzz Lightyears helmet to complete the look.
Holly loved Buzz Lightyears glow in the dark blaster.
Alice also wanted to try it out!
The girls immediately got into character and declared the treehouse, the castle and Holly would defend it. I love their imaginations.
Alice was also sent a Merida doll, where the artists have turned back time to when Merida was a little girl with long curly hair and a cheeky face. Alice loves her!
Here is Holly patrolling the castle, with Forky that she was kindly sent. To say she was happy with her Forky is an understatement, he hasn’t left her side.
Alice decided to set up a tea party, because that is what princess do and Alice said that if she was a princess for the day, she would just eat cake.

You can buy all the costumes and accessories from shopDisney.
They had such a fun afternoon and it was great to watch them and listen to their little chats. Children have the best imaginations.
