Our whole family enjoyed this movie immensely (check out our review here) and now it seems as though the majority of my kids' imaginative adventures include flying and wings lighting up and saving the Pixie Dust Tree. Considering the cute, sweet messages of friendship, family and working together that this movie portrays, I'm happy to see my girls so excited to extend them into our everyday life!
Tinker Bell, everyone's favorite Disney Fairies character, is back with her latest fun and imaginative adventure. In Secret of the Wings, she visits the forbidden and mysterious Winter Woods where her wings begin to magically sparkle. It's only after she meets Periwinkle, a beautiful Frost Fairy, that she uncovers the truth behind the glow…they are long lost twin sisters!
Inspired by the movie, JAKKS Pacific has developed a magical line of dolls, dress up and role play items that truly brings the movie to life and allows girls to relive their favorite movie moments (and create their own).
When a selection of Secret of the Wings toys arrived, I had no doubt that my girls would be thrilled to get to experience the magic of the movie with such colorful new ways. Even the box was a delightful fairy hit!
As soon as the Disney Fairies Magical Light Up Wings (SRP $19.99, ages 3+) were out of the box, it was clear that they were going to provide a great deal of oohs and ahhs. Who wouldn't be drawn to a magical pair of fiber optic wings that light up in six different vibrant colors?
I love how easy these wings are for my girls to use (there is a simple on/off switch on the back) and that the lightweight fabric is so comfortable for them to wear. They don't have any problem slipping their arms into the durable elastic straps and then fluttering around as they transform into these beautiful fairies!
When it comes to pretending and reenacting Secret of the Wings, it just wouldn't be the same without the characters themselves. As we opened our Disney Fairies Secret of The Wings Fashion Doll - Periwinkle (SRP $11.99, ages 4+) it brought a smile to our faces to see this starring character in a miniature, 9" size.
Also available in Tinker Bell, Silvermist, Rosetta and Spike, this adorable fairy is just the right size to hold, make "fly," and recreate the adventures of Pixie Hollow and the Winter Woods. My girls have had a great time admiring her fashionable winter clothing, removable shining wings (attached with Velcro) and cute little shoes.
Now we just have to bring home Tinker Bell so that the girls can bring the twin sisters together!
When it comes to the magic of flying fairies, however, the Disney Fairies Sky High Periwinkle (SRP $16.99, ages 4+) has made that possible in a whimsical and entertaining way.
Featuring a petite Periwinkle with plastic arms/wings and a flower-shaped launcher, this toy is designed to make it easy to help this Frost Fairy soar through the air. Simply place her in the launcher, pull the string and watch her spin around and around as she flies up to 10 feet high!
I appreciate the way that this doll comes with a safety lock mechanism that kicks in when it is not being held at a 90° angle, therefore preventing the user from accidentally launching the doll into themselves or someone nearby.
Instead, you simply give the string a good pull and watch Periwinkle go shooting off into the sky!
As well as the variety of whimsical dolls, toys and apparel that JAKKS Pacific has debuted to bring Secret of the Wings to life, they are also celebrating the special bond that sisters (and best friends) share with an exciting Disney Fairies giveaway, aptly named the "Sisters Sweepstakes."
