This year for Halloween my little girl is going to be a princess, ....again! It's funny because my little girl is not a princess, meaning I don't dress her in pink and frills all the time and call her princess but we love Disney princess characters and she has a few dress up princess costumes so when she asked for a crown to go with her dress, The Early Learning Centre was the first place I looked as they are always good for little accessories such as this. Although not a crown, my little girl is very happy with this tiara as it is shaped just like the one her Cinderella doll wears. The tiara is basically just a fancy plastic headband to be honest and its actually quite frustrating trying to keep this on her head as its a bit top heavy and doesn't have any comb bits at the end to help it stay in the hair so we have to be quite good at propping it in her hair or most of the time she just carries it around and puts it up to her head herself. The tiara is silver and actually has quite a cute design to it. There are little bobbles all over it, which I'm guessing are meant to look like tiny diamonds or jewels that make up the overall framework of the tiara. This gives it quite a jewelled effect rather than just being a plain headband which we both like. I think the fact that its silver too makes it a little bit more realistic than if it were pink or purple like other play tiara's I have seen. Then there are bigger jewels placed strategically around the crown, one big one in the middle and then two either side. All of these jewels are heart shaped and I think go very well with the theme of the crown. The big jewel in the middle is pink whereas the ones on the side are silver and blue. I think the silver and blue contrast well with the pink and give it a bit of colour. The best part about the crown is that it lights up as there is a little battery that operates the lights. This lights up well although you do need to be in the dark to see it, on a regular afternoon light its not very bright but this will be perfect on the dark streets when we are going trick-or-treating. There are a little pair of earrings that come with this outfit too but I opted not to give them to my little girl. I know they are only dress up earrings but I do not like little kids in earrings at all and so do not want her to get familiar with them or start liking them. Plus, I think they would pretty much fall off all the time anyway so that's why I didn't let her have them. At just £5 for the set I thought this was a great bargain. It's good enough quality to last us through Halloween and then to go in our dress up box afterwards too and I can see it lasting until it gets stepped on or something like that.
