Last weekend we went to the most adorable birthday party at one of my favorite places as a kid, a farm. As a kid my mom and I spent most of our free time at the barn. Riding horses, setting up jumping courses for us to pretend we were riding after bathing our horses and put them back in their stalls for the day.
Being back at a barn even though it was a different one from my childhood brought back a flood of happy memories. B got a chance to ride a horse and she loved it. For a moment I thought about asking her if she wanted to start riding. And then I talked to some friends who reminded me that most days it is in the 90s. Which means as the parent you are sitting in the heat waiting for lessons to be over. And the expense of the sport is staggering.
So, when JAKKS Pacific Disney sent us two of the biggest boxes I have received all year I did something I don’t generally do, I just had to open them before B did so I could see what they sent. Kurt and I both were over the moon and we knew that B would love these three gifts. I wanted to share all about them because I know your kids will love them too.
Holiday Gift Guide for Kids
Disney Princess Maximus
The look on B’s face was priceless. She could not wait to get it out of the box. Maximus, Rapunzel’s horse is 2-feet tall and can support having a child sit on him (up to 70lbs). B immediately jumped onto Maximus. She loved that when she pulled on the reins he moves and makes sounds.
Maximus also comes with an apple (that he will make chomping sounds when he feed him), hair brush and hair accessories. Buy one today here.
This Rapunzel is huge. She stands at 32″ tall. B loved that she can pose and play with Rapunzel. She is wearing her signature purple dress. She comes with a brush which is perfect with her long blonde hair. Buy one today here.
Disney’s Fancy Nancy: My Friend Fancy Nancy Feature Doll is a huge hit. Nancy is ready to play with her signature outfit of leggings, tiara, and a chic party dress. The doll is the perfect size at 18″. B loved that her body is able to move so much with the 12 points of articulation at the neck, shoulders, waist, elbows, wrists, hips, and knees.
Having a daughter with red hair has really opened my eyes to just how important it is for kids to have dolls that look just like them. It is no surprise that B loves Fancy Nancy because she is a redhead too. Buy one today here.
