Frozen II Inspired Adventures With shopDisney

(AD - Post contains products gifted from shopDisney, but all thoughts and opinions are our own. The adventure described is all from our own imaginations).

“Come on, we are going on an adventure with Sven and Olaf” said Elsa.
“Where are we going?” her sister replied.
“The Magical Forbidden Forest. What do you think you should pack?”
“Everything”

Frozen captivated M’s heart right from the beginning. She was enthralled by the songs, the story and the Queen with the long blonde hair. I have memories of her at 3 years old running around and singing the line: “Let it Go” over and over out of tune. Fortunately her singing has improved over the years, but Frozen still holds a special place in our hearts. I have lost count of the number of times M and Little have taken on the roles of the sisters from Arendelle and now we are ready for a new adventure with the release of Frozen II.

"The Forest is dark, what if we get lost?" worried Elsa.
"We won’t get lost, I have a compass" said Anna patting her bag.
"What’s a compass?" 
"It shows you which way to go"
"So which way should we go now?"
"Let’s follow the path"

I have so many memories linked to the Frozen film. From M singing in the forest, to repeatedly jumping off a wall in our old house dressed as Anna. Then there was the Frozen themed birthday party of her friend where M had her photo taken with the princesses, it was the first time she was brave enough to go up to any  “characters”, although the adult size Olaf still scared her a little.

"Where has Olaf gone?" said Elsa.
"Didn’t you have him?"
"No, I’ve been looking after Sven, I thought you had him"
"Oh Olaf, he’s always getting into trouble"
"Yes, just like you"
"No, I’m not, you are so mean" says Anna stamping her feet in frustration.
"It’s true, remember that time you were playing on the beach and you got all the sea in your boots? We had to carry you home in a blanket"
"That was fun" giggled Anna, "look there is Olaf"
"How did he get up there and in all the brambles?" asked Elsa.
"Who knows, lets rescue him again"

Oh Olaf, how did you get there?

I have bought several Frozen dresses over the years as M has grown. Each one has snags, rips and marks on; memories of all the adventures the girls have been on when they insisted on wearing the dresses. Disney princesses of old may have been more “princess like” but the Frozen sisters climb mountains, fall in streams and go on adventures in the forest. They are the inspiration for exploring and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

"Come on, I want to go home" says Anna.
"Yes, I’m hungry" replied Elsa.
"And I’m cold"
"I don’t get cold, but I do want some chocolate"
"Mmm chocolate" the girls say together.

The friendship between the sisters is so important. I grew up with an older sister and I have 2 daughters of my own. I know a sister means arguments and fighting, but it also means loyalty and lifelong friendship. It doesn’t matter what they go through, when one of them is hurt or upset the other one is there. The film shows the strength of sibling friendship that I see growing in my daughters day by day. We are so excited to watch Frozen II.

    1. I must admit we have bought a combination of dresses from the Disney store and cheaper versions, but the Disney Store ones are always such great quality that it's worth that little bit extra. I would love to get Incredible outfits for my family, we totally identify as them right down to the cheeky baby Jack Jack. So excited for the new Frozen film too
