I’m sure you know by now that Moana is definitely one of my favorite things from 2016! If not, I suggest putting Moana in the search bar on the site and seeing how many posts I have written about this beautiful Disney creation.
How can you not love this gorgeous, brave, brown young lady? Granted, she didn’t follow her father’s rules but what teenager does? This young lady followed her heart, her grandmother and her purpose. Another Disney character I wouldn’t mind JustaBXgirl to look up to.
If you follow us on social media you might have already gotten a peek at Singing Moana when she joined us for an advance screening of the film. You know the screening we actually saw, not the one that JustaBXgirl had a meltdown trying to see. Either way I want you to get a closer look at this beautiful doll and her partner Mega Maui.
Here’s JustaBXgirl excited to open her Moana toys. I’ll be discussing the toys in detail below the video 🙂
Singing Moana -This doll is great because even if you get her alone she still has Pua and Hei-Hei to play with. JustaBXgirl is still wondering why Pua couldn’t go on the trip with Moana. As you heard from JustaBXgirl in the video Moana’s friends are very hard. Be careful if you have a little that likes to launch his/her toys. These will hurt! True to her word JustaBXgirl brings Pua and Hei-Hei in water with her. It’s too cold for the pool but they regularly join her for adventures in the bathtub. Moana gets to brave the cold and come with us outside on adventures. So far she has been to the movies (shh, I didn’t get her a ticket), to gymnastics class, out for pizza and to plenty of stores. The doll sings and says a few of her movie lines. Currently she is in charge of guarding our Christmas tree. Personally, I think JustaBXgirl has her counting how many gifts are under it, but that’s just me!
Mega Maui – This toy is HUGE. We love him (even if JustaBXgirl can barely carry him). I am completely impressed with the detail in this toy. His tattoos are great. I keep waiting for Mini Maui to start moving. He speaks and sings as well. If you close your eyes you can imagine it’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in your living room. I know moms (and some dads) that’s enough of a reason to want this doll for ourselves! Don’t worry the littles will love it just as much. One thing that both JustaBXgirl and I like is that his hair is part of the doll. As you see in the video she says it feels rubbery. It helps when playing with him that there isn’t hair to get in your child’s face. We also both love that his hook is detachable. It means both Maui and our littles can have adventures using the hook.
