The Princess Twins of Legendale
Last weekend, the girls and I enjoyed a family film debuting this week at Target stores: The Princess Twins of Legendale.
The Princess Twins of Legendale is made by the creators of the cute Lalaloopsy dolls, and I even noticed that the two dolls shown in the movie bear more than a passing resemblance to her. It’s the tale of twin sisters, Eve and Dawn, who are separated at birth and only reunited in their teens, by a series of magical events (just in case the kid on a flying horse featured on the cover didn’t clue you in that this is no everyday story).
Aren’t they cute? The film also features cheery music and fun, visually-appealing animation. My girls enjoyed it, and I feel that at 12, 14, and 16, they’re far older than the target audience.
My one hesitation on this one is evil Queen Dume, pictured above. She’s a super-creepy spider who enters the baby princesses’ lives early on, stealing one away and knocking their mother to her death over a castle parapet. “Ugh, that’s going to totally creep out little kids!” one daughter exclaimed, and I have a feeling she’s right. Use your discretion on this.
I think The Princess Twins of Legendale would make a great gift for the elementary-age girl in your life. Pick up a copy for a gift next time you’re in Target, or pick one up anytime on Amazon!
