Just in time for the first day of summer, Pixar’s newest movie Brave opens this weekend! What better time than summer to grab a cold drink, some popcorn and spend the evening in an air-conditioned theater watching a fantastic movie? After falling in love with Merida, you can head to the nearest Target to pick up a couple adorable Mattel toys featuring the “brave” princess. Here are a couple that your kids will love!
Brave Gem Styling Merida doll gives girls the chance to decorate Merida’s signature blue
gown or red hair with “gems.” They can even flip her reversible cape to reveal a beautiful
sparkly print. $20.99, Age: 3+
Brave Castle & Forest Playset brings Merida’s magical world comes to life. When closed the play set is outdoor “forest” where Merida can venture with Angus. Open the play set to play out Merida’s life within the kingdom. $26.99, Age: 3+
I have always loved anything and everything that has to do with Disney, so I was just as excited as my girls when their Brave toys came! They went crazy when they saw that Merida was going to be the newest addition to their collection! The Merida Gem Styling Doll was the first thing we opened. My girls loved it because is uses Velcro to attach the gems to her dress, hair or even their own hair! What a clever idea! Her bow and arrow and shoes were cool too! The Castle & Forest Playset is really neat because it can transform from the outdoors to the inside of the castle just by folding in the trees. My daughters had fun searching for the three brothers and putting Merida to bed in the top floor of the castle. My son loved Angus and had fun riding with him around the castle. Both of these toys, made my Mattel, are of the highest quality and will definitely be played with, and loved, for a long time to come!
The Merida Gem Styling Doll ($20.99) and Brave Castle & Forest Playset ($26.99) can be purchased at the Mattel Shop, Amazon or your other favorite retailer. They are recommended for ages 3+ and don’t require batteries!
