I’m not sure what it is about Tinker Bell but there’s something so magical and special about everything she touches. So when we heard that Disney was releasing a brand new Tinker Bell movie entitled “Secret of the Wings” we couldn’t wait to watch it.

In Tink’s latest adventure, she visits the forbidden and mysterious Winter Woods where her wings begin to magically sparkle. It’s only after she meets Periwinkle, a beautiful Frost Fairy, that she uncovers the truth behind the glow.

Thanks to Mom Spark Media, our family recently had the opportunity to check out some cool products from JAKKS Pacific. Here’s what we got:

  • 9″ Periwinkle Classic Fashion Doll ($11.99)
  • Sky High Periwinkle ($16.99)
  • Magical Light Up Wings ($19.99)

The Periwinkle Classic Fashion Doll is the perfect addition to the girls’ doll collection. She comes with a beautiful sparkly dress, shimmery wings, and a pair of shoes with little fluffy puffs on them. Like most fashion dolls, Periwinkle’s outfit and shoes are removable so you can mix and match with other dolls her size. Everything is basically held together by Velcro so it’s super easy for even the youngest girl to play independently. No small buttons or stretchy plastic.

Her arms move at the shoulders and she’s able to bend at the waist. It would have been nice to have her joints (elbows & knees) bend as well but the girls didn’t seem to mind. They just loved that she was so shiny!

The Sky High Periwinkle is a fun way to get this Disney Fairy high up in the air . . . 10 feet high! There are 2 pieces to this set: Periwinkle and the launcher. It’s super easy to use! Just place Periwinkle into the launcher, give it a half turn to secure, hold launcher vertically and pull the cord back. That’s it!

What I really liked about this toy is the safety mechanism that it has installed. If the launcher is not held straight up the flying fairy will lock. This ensures that no one gets accidentally hit by the flying toy. Pretty cool, huh?

Finally, Kaila’s favorite item was the Magically Light Up Wings. These super lightweight wings run on 3 AAA batteries (included) and shine at a push of a button. It lights up in 6 different colors and looks great in the dark!

The wings secure to Kaila with 2 arm bands and I was really surprised at how well they stayed in place. In the past, I’ve had less than desirable results with costume wings.

Kaila was supposed to be Rupunzel for Halloween but I think we’re going to have to change things. Wouldn’t these wings look so awesome while trick-or-treating?

These are just a sample of Disney Fairies Secret of the Wings products that are now available from JAKKS Pacific. Check out the rest of the adorable line for that little fairy in your life!

Pixie Dust forever!
