Reader's Digest Disney Tangled and Princess Books Review and GIVEAWAY-CLOSED!

 Just in time for the release of Disney's "Tangled" in the movie theaters (and Veronica's birthday, too!), I received a box in the mail from Reader's Digest chock full of interactive hardcover books! These are must-haves for girls of any age this Christmas. By the way, I heard that the movie made second place in the box office, right under Harry Potter, and it's a bit of a tear-jerker, so bring the tissues!

The box was fun to open - and the boys even got excited about the books! The four books that came in the package weren't just any old books...

The book, "Tangled" is a Rapunzel story, Rapnnzel's Dream that includes the musical hairbrush with a magical tune. Rapunzel's Adventures includes the music player that plays 20 different tunes. The music player is detachable and can be brought places or stood on the dresser in your daughter's room. Rapunzel's Magical Hair comes with the hair clip with Rapunzel's hair for your daughter to brush and play with (the clip even lights up!)


Have you seen the commercials where Grandma presses the button and records her voice while reading the book? Then, the children that receive the book get to hear Grandma's voice read it to them? Princess Dreams is the fourth book in the collection that I received and it's one of the record-a-books - this was the hit of the house! I can't say that the children were recording themselves reading the story, but they sure had fun playing with the recorder!

Toy Story 3!!!

There are also Toy Story 3 books just like these that we're going to have to get for the boys for Christmas!  (I still looooooove Toy Story, don't you???)


GIVEAWAY!

You guessed it! Yes, Reader's Digest (an official Disney publishing licensee) has offered to give away the whole set of (four) books to one lucky random winner here at Mommy Rantings. Any little girl will go nuts over this set of books! And you'll get them in time for Christmas!
