We finally got round to taking the kids to the cinema to see Disney’s new offering Brave at the weekend. What a great film! The kids and adults alike were completely engrossed by Merida’s wonderful coming of age tale set in the highlands of Scotland.
Thankfully (though sadly unusually for the movies) the producers have relied on a mainly home grown cast of voice actors, so the Scottish accents are genuine rather than those awful Hollywood approximations that threaten to completely distract me from the storyline the faux “Och, hoots mon!” lingo.
If you haven’t yet made it to see this wee animated wonder, we’d definitely recommend it for a a rainy day activity. Perhaps as a back to school treat this weekend? If your kids like it half as much as ours did, you’re sure to be onto a winner.
If the little lady in your life is a big fan of Brave, we also recommend you take a wee look at the new costumes in our Girls TV Star Fancy Dress range. We’ve got a choice of two gorgeous Disney’s Brave fancy dress outfits: the cutesy Classic Merida Brave costume for an amazingly low £10.50 and the seriously stunning Deluxe Merida Brave costume which comes complete with headband and will set you back only £17.26. Each of these gorgeous dressing up outfits comes in a choice of 3 sizes: small (age 3-4), medium (age 5-6) and large (age 7-8) so you can find the perfect fit for your own little Merida.
Of course, no Merida costume would be complete without the glorious mane of red hair. Don’t worry though If your wee one isn’t blessed with natural strawberry curls – we’ve got the perfect solution in the shape of our delightful Princess Merida Wig. A snip (pun intended!) at just £7.65.
