Not long after Sissy turned one she discovered her sister’s Ariel necklace. It is a string of faux pearls with a purple sea shell in the middle with a button that when pushed played Ariel’s song. You know the one she sings when Ursula steals her voice, Ahaha ahaha ahaha ahaha ahha… (Don’t make me sing it for you.)
From the moment she discovered that necklace she was obsessed and soon toddled all over the house “singing” Ariel. She couldn’t talk yet, but if she saw anything related to Ariel, she began to sing. (The necklace is available in The Little Mermaid Musical Set from the Disney Store.)
Not long after that her big sister and I decided that we should throw a Little Mermaid party for her second birthday in October — days after the re-release of The Little Mermaid on Blu-Ray and in 3D. It was perfect. (Party planning currently in progress.)
So for my little mermaid, I couldn’t have been more excited when our 3D copy of The Little Mermaid arrived in the mail.
We own a copy of The Little Mermaid on DVD from the last time this classic was released from the vault, and my girls have worn the copy out. And every time we watch it my husband, the techy, rolls his eyes at the poor quality. Now we can watch the movie free of eye rolling.
Plus don’t miss Carly Rae Jepsen performing “Part Of Your World.” I take Disney remakes very serious, and I was concerned about a remake of one of the best Disney songs of all time. But Carly Rae did it justice, her voice is beautiful, her rendition is melodic and her video is fantastic. In the mean time, you can settle for adding the song to your iTunes playlist.
The best deal I have found is for the Blu-Ray/DVD combo for $12.96 at Walmart with coupon — plus get $8 movie cash to see Disney’s Frozen in the theater this fall. (But hurry, this deal is only good through October 4, 2013.)
Disney is offering some great freebies! You can get a FREE Ariel Palace Pets Lithograph with the purchase of any version (just pay $2.95 shipping), a FREE music download of family favorites and Little Mermaid inspired songs with the 3D Combo Pack version, and if you purchase one of the versions that includes a Digital Copy, you can also use the Magic Code to claim a FREE $5 DisneyStore.com credit.
So what are we doing for the party? One thing I always do is print coloring pages, a nice filler at the beginning of the party. Download The Little Mermaid Coloring pages here or clicking on the image below. There will be much more to come. (Make sure you follow me on Instagram too.)
One lucky winner will receive a copy of The Little Mermaid on Blu-Ray / DVD combo.
