You may have read my earlier posts about Eva and how she is struggling with starting school this year. It has been so difficult to watch her change from the confident, out-going little girl she was back in September, to a very insecure, clingy little girl who still cries every single morning, even three months down the line. Despite trying various things, including bribery, the only thing that really helps Eva is to make sure that our evenings and weekends are as lovely as possible to tide her over through the week.
It’s very hard with four children to give them quality one on one time in the same way that I did when it was just Lewis and I. With two younger siblings Eva has had to share me from a very early age and although I don’t regret that, I do allow the Mummy guilt to eat away at me from time to time. Which is why I try really hard to make sure that every so often, even if it isn’t as often as we would like, we do something special together. And last weekend it was Eva’s turn for our very own Frozen Northern Lights night in which co-incided nicely with the new Frozen LEGO adventure which premiered on Disney Junior last weekend.
For our Frozen night in we were kindly sent our very own Elsa bauble for the Christmas tree, a Frozen magazine, fleece blanket and the new Disney Frozen Northern Lights Elsa Doll from Jakks Pacific.
It was so lovely to snuggle down under the blanket and read the Frozen magazine while we waited for the show to start. Eva has come on leaps and bounds with her reading over the last three months and I was so impressed by the way that she sounded out her letters. The magazine was a big hit with Eva, she especially loved the paints and felt tip pens that came with it.
When I brought out the new Elsa doll, Eva’s face was priceless! It was just what she needed to cheer her up and as we read the enclosed information, her eyes grew wider, “Get it out!!” she said, impatiently.
“Queen Elsa of Arendelle needs your help to bring back the Northern Lights and restore her powers. Wave your hand over the interactive snowflake, and create beautiful colours, lights and magical sounds with Elsa. When you hold your hand over the snowflake, watch as the beautiful Northern Lights are restored and sparkle upon Elsa’s dress as she sings “Let it Go”.
Elsa says 40 phrases, lights up and sings and, at 14 inches, the doll is a really good size. Eva particularly loved the motion censored snowflake and was convinced that she had magical powers to change the colours of the lights!
The Frozen Northern Lights Elsa Doll retails at £39.99 and I would recommend it to any Frozen fans out there. We thoroughly enjoyed our Frozen night in and it was lovely spending one on one time with Eva, even if she did have her head stuck in her magazine for most of it!
