Disney Tangled Rapunzel Costume
Advantages: Cheap dressing up dress, Can be machine washed. Looks the part, my daughter loves it.
Disadvantages: Hair piece does not stay on, velcro is not strong enough.
My daughter is really into princesses and when the Disney Tangled movie come out on dvd I was please to be able to pre order it from Amazon Uk. The movie is not like the classic story of Rapunzel it has a whole new twist to it, we all really enjoyed it. As I was going to Disneyland for the first time , friends had recommended purchasing our dressing up costumes in the Disney store here as they are double the price in paris and since Rapunzel was flavour of the month I had decided to get the costume. I found the Disney store version of Rapunzel costume was too expensive at £34.99 so I opted for the cheaper dress from Tesco.
Tesco sell this exact Rapunzel costume complete with the braided head wear for £12.99 a real bargain in my opinion. The label states that it is an official disney item.
The Rapunzel dresses start in size from age 2-3 years and finish in the size 9-10 years. My daughter is three and I opted for the age 2-3 years as this fitted her best , she is very petite for her age.
The dress is mainly purple with light lilac coloured trim and ribbon and made from satin polyester material. It has short sleeves with elastic cuffs so they sit better puffed up on the sholders, the bodice has the ribbon criss crossing down the top half and a plastic badge in the centre of Rapunzel , this is glittery and colourful.
The bottom of the dress floats out a little and has a mesh undercoat this seems to help. The dress is thin and mainly just for play dress up or games.
The head piece is made from synesthetic blonde hair that's been braided just like Rapunzels own hair in the movie. At the top is a purple bow ribbon and a small tab of velcro. The way this attaches is awkward but you have put the plait around the head and secure both bits of velcro and let the rest of the braid hang down. There is no decoration on the head piece apart from a small bow and its very thin. Unfortnitly the head peice kept falling off as the velcro is not strong enough so my daughter ended up losing this on our trip.
The dress can only be machine washed but must be air dried not tumble dryer or it will melt the fabric. I think the dress looks very like the Rapunzel character from the movie. It is of coarse a cheap version and is not as good quality compared to the Disney store version but this one is half the price.
Money nor quality matters to my daughter she was happy enough just being Rapunzel.
My daughter did wear the dress at Disneyland and got loads of comments from the princesses she was in heaven.
I have washed the dress around five times now as it gets dirty easily and have no issues with it. I am so pleased with the dress I will recommend it.
