We want to give a huge thank you to Disney for inviting our family to this event and providing us with free products. All views and opinions are me own as always <3
Hello there, mermaid lovers! I’m here to share our recent adventure at the Little Mermaid product launch Shell-ebration. My family and I had the opportunity to attend this event, and let me tell you, it was a shell of a good time! We were so excited to get a good look at all the new products surrounding the release of The Little Mermaid Live Action on May 26th.
The Little Mermaid Shell-ebration
First things first, Shop Disney sent my kids a Little Mermaid Ariel costume dress and tridents for my sons to dress up for the event. They looked absolutely adorable, and it definitely set the tone for the day.
The event was held at a hotel penthouse and rooftop in Hollywood, and it was decked out in Little Mermaid decor. There was a photobooth with props fit for a mermaid, and my family and I had a blast taking silly videos with the different accessories.
Flounder’s Learning Alcove was also a hit with my kids. They enjoyed reading books and learning more about the Little Mermaid characters. The water and sand play stations were also a hit, as my kids had fun playing with the dolls and creating their own Little Mermaid adventures. There are so many new books your kids can enjoy!
Of course, we can’t forget about the snacks and themed beverages for the movie. The Little Mermaid themed cotton candy were almost too pretty to eat, but we managed to devour them anyways. And the drinks were the perfect refreshing beverage for the day.
Let’s Talk About The Products
Before I talk about the movie screening, let’s talk about the whole reason behind this awesome celebration- the new products! With the release of The Little Mermaid there are countless products coming alongside of it. Anything from cereal with the characters on the cover to clothing to of course- toys!
We were fortunate enough to not just take a look at and play with new products, but also take some home AND hear from some of the Disney team regarding their inspiration for these new pieces. Let me tell you I left wanting to basically turn my life into a Little Mermaid ad. Now, let’s talk about some of our favorites.
My Family’s Favorites
The Little Mermaid Barbies are showstoppers! Everything from a collection of Ariel and her sisters to Prince Eric and Ariel right to an Ariel doll perfect to swim alongside your child- there is something for everyone!
One of our favorites is the Little Mermaid Sing & Dream Ariel Fashion Doll with its beautiful details and sparkling tail. The Ursula doll was also a hit, as it captured the essence of the character perfectly. And the Loungefly backpack and wallet were both stylish and functional, perfect for any Little Mermaid fan.
A few more of our favorites have been the ZAK and Tervis water bottles (pictured above), Posh Peanut packing cubes set, the Under The Sea Exploring Ariel, the Lego sets, the Transforming Ariel doll who switches from fins to dress with ease, and of course the Singing Seashell necklace. We are extremely grateful we got to come home with these items and many more from Pandora, Disney Books, and so much more!
The Little Mermaid Movie
Now, let’s talk BRIEFLY about The Little Mermaid Live Action film. I say briefly because you know a whole dedicated post is coming to you soon! IT WAS AMAZING! The cherry on top was an unbelievable visit from The Little Mermaid herself, Halle Bailey right before we got to watch the film. It was an absolute dream. My kids were starstruck, and we were all in awe of her talent and beauty.
The movie is an absolute must watch. The cast is incredible. Halle Bailey is an amazing Ariel and Melissa McCarthy is such a great Ursula I hated that I loved her character haha!
The Little Mermaid product launch Shell-ebration was a fun-filled day that my family and I will never forget. It was the perfect way to celebrate the launch of these amazing products, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to have attended. Thank you, Disney, for making our mermaid dreams come true!
