A few weeks ago we were fortunate to have been invited by Disney to see their gift offerings for Christmas 2021. There was so much to look at from toys for children, joyful crockery for your kitchen to wonderfully jolly clothing for your festive days out!
We always have a Disney themed tree in our Family Room and over the years we have added furnishings such as Mickey and Minnie blankets and cushions. We add a few items every single year and our Family Room is probably my favourite come Christmas time! Our Disney tree makes us so happy.
There were a few items that caught my eye at the Disney event and I haven’t stopped hinting at my husband – so lets hope he gets it!!
Disney have so many wonderful Christmas items to make your home feel festive and I particularly loved this Winnie the Pooh cookie jar available from Asda. There are coordinating items available too and the size if very generous with it being 26.7cm tall!
Best of all… It is only £13.
They do have festive Mickey back this year along with matching serving plates, bowls and mugs.
Last year we picked up a gorgeous Minnie and Mickey cushion and fleece blanket from Primark and it added a lovely cosy feeling to our Family Room where our Disney tree is. I noticed that Asda have a lovely red cushion and blanket this year – I especially love the candy cane stripes! Which especially matches the theme of our tree… hmmm
This year Disney have not forgotten about pets either! I think the dog and cat beds are the cutest I have ever seen and so reasonably priced from only £14, again from Asda.
We have just returned from spending Halloween in Disneyland Paris and whilst we were there we picked up this gorgeous red dress for Ita. I have seen this is now available on the Shop Disney website linked below.
Shop Disney have a baby/ toddler version which, dare I say, is even cuter? It is £25 and comes with tights and a hat too. The age range is 0-3 months to 18-24 months. The neckline on this dress is absolutely stunning.
When we visited Disneyland Paris back in December 2019, I couldn’t find many themed Disney jumpers but all of a sudden they have loads! I really like this Spider Man one and feel it is not bad priced at £18. If you are planning a Disney trip this Christmas, you may need this.
And lets not leave out this UP! jumper for adults…
Again available from Shop Disney.
We stopped to check out the Neo Smart Watch which is perfect for children about 4 – 9 years. It is packed with features including a camera, activity tracker and much more. Plus, kids stay in touch with GPS location, calls and chat. All personalised with characters from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel.
This is available from Vodaphone at £99.
We also got to check out the new Guardians of the Galaxy game which is available on x-Box and PS4 and 5 which is sold exclusively from Game.
Now, it wouldn’t be Christmas without board games. Ita has loved them from a very young age – shes quite competitive like her dad!
Hasbro Gaming Disney Song Challenge is on the top of our list to get this year and it is available from Amazon for £26.50.
The Disney Song Challenge is a game that tests a players’ Disney song expertise. A card is flipped over from the deck, revealing a Disney movie or TV show. The first player to jump up and sing a song from the movie or show wins the card. But, if the player messes up the song, the player must spin the Wheel of Fun-sequences and perform a silly action. Most of the Fun-sequences are Disney-themed—impression of a Disney character. First player to earn five cards wins.
The Disney Think Fast game where you put your Disney knowledge to by completing fast-paced trivia. The teams go head-to-head in 3 rounds. With each round the answers stay the same, but the questions get harder, until you’re only given one word! You have 30 seconds to answer in, so you need to Think Fast if you want to win!
Best of all in my opinion is that playing time is around 30 minutes. Sorry but Ita likes to draaag out board games.
I have also recently ordered this Frozen 2 Monopoly game from The Entertainer for only £12.
We have almost every Disney Princess Lego set out as well as a few Star Wars ones too. This is a gift for children (or adults) that you get to take part in too.
LEGO Disney Ariel, Belle, Cinderella and Tiana’s Story is a lovely small set which comes with 4 princess characters and a small castle setting which doubles as storage too. This is actually such great value at £20.
We have actually bought Ita the Mini Disney Castle from the Lego website for £30.99 which I think she will really love. Mickey is so cute!
Another little stocking filler which I think is adorable is the Mickey Mouse Lego keyring at £3.99.
Ita was lucky in that she got to review this Rapunzel Glow and Style doll back in the summer and since then she has played a lot with this doll. She even came to Disneyland with us. When you brush and style Rapunzel’s hair, it glows!
It goes without saying that Disney have released new annual plush toys of Minnie and Mickey which can also be personalised.
We usually get Ita a Minnie plushie – the tartan this year is so festive.
Currently on The Entertainer website, there are really big reductions on Disney toys!
I hope this little guide has been useful but most of all, we wish you a Merry Christmas #FromOurFamilyToYours
