Advantages: pretty little dress up costume, great to put close underneath to keep them warm
Disadvantages: the price and the lack of accesesories,
I am a part time child minder and look after myy neice and nephew, while their mum goes out to work three days a week and it's good to keep something in the house for them to play with as they are over around at mine so much.
My little niece just loves Disney films, and one of her favourite Disney Princesses is Belle from Beauty and The Beast, so this Halloween instead of opting for the scarier costume, she decided she wanted something a bit more girly and prettier, so when I was in the Disney Store in Belfast I came across this and just couldn't resist spoiling her a bit and buying it for her.
This little dress was good for Halloween because it covered her almost from head to toe, so it wasn't hard to put some clothes in underneath it when she was out trick or treating to keep her warm, however she plays dress up quite a lot and doesn't need to wear extra clothes underneath it when she is in the house.
The dress itself is soft yellow satin and there is white puffy shoulders and jewels and print on the bodice, the dress is flowy and really princess like and the skirt is puffy and has some extra netting in it to make it sit out just like in the movie. It isn't hard for my niece to get into the dress as an outfit and she can dress up in it all by herself, there aren't any extra bits and pieces that come with this dress, though they are available for purchase at an extra cost.
Prices really do depend on where you shop, I bought this dress in the Disney Store, but I didn't buy the rest of the accessories because they were so expensive and my niece has loads of dress up accessories so we could use something from her collection instead.
This dress is suitable for ages 2 and up, there are a range of different sizes that you can buy, so just check the age on the label when you are buying, my niece is 4 and a half I think she bought the age 4-5 dress, and hers is a bit big on her but that was all the better as you could fit clothes under it at Halloween as opposed to it being too tight, and also she will grow into it which gives her more use out of it.
The only thing that this dress is missing is a pair of little shoes and extra jewellery, (it is a shame it didn't all come with the dress) though my niece already had yellow shoes and a little plastic dress up jewellery set so she puts them on along with her dress when she wants to dress up and play princesses.
I bought this dress in the Disney Shop in Belfast for £30, however I can see it online for around the £10 mark which is cheaper and a more reasonable price to pay for it.
Overall I think that this was a lovely little present for my niece, especially because she loves the Disney Princesses and also growing up, she has got lots of use out of this costume and I think that when she grows out of it, I might get her the Snow White one if she is still as interested in the whole dressing up game as she is now.
