Ariel’s Musical Surprise and Light Up Dress

If your daughter is as into all things princess as much as my daughter is, then you’re going to love this post… especially if you’re looking for a great Christmas gift. Full disclosure, I was sent these products to review, but all opinions are my own, as usual!


First of all, Molly was beyond excited when we opened up the package and she hasn’t stopped playing with the instruments since they arrived a few weeks ago. They are really good quality and the dress is just fabulous — it lights up!!! She likes wearing it around the house and the best part is that I can turn of the motion sensor so the music doesn’t constantly play… this mama likes when things come with off buttons! :)


The musical instruments actually interact with a FREE app that you can download where children can explore Ariel’s grotto, paint and decorate fish under the sea, and create and play music. However, I’m not cool enough to have the needed iphone (I’m still on a 4) so if you want to use the app you need at least an iPhone4s.


So, despite the fact that I can’t yet access the technology that goes along with the products, I would highly recommend Ariel’s Musical Surprise and Light Up Dress to any princess-loving child. It is in heavy rotation now with Molly’s favorite things. And actually, Burke really enjoys banging on those bongos as well! You can find them at any large retailer that sells Disney products. Below I shot a little video to give you more of an idea of what the products look and sound like. Enjoy!
