I have dreamed of taking my family to Disney Parks since my oldest was 2 and began her obsession with all things Princesses (and Charlie & Lola of course). I have planned the trip a million times and each time we have to use the money for something else.
When I got invited to the Disney Social Media Moms conference this year I was over the moon, figuring this would be the time I could finally make all our dreams come true. Because the Conferences was being held in Disneyland, it would have required cross-country flights for my crew, which turned out to be out of the budget. This means I finally went to Disneyland, but I didn’t bring my kids. Bummer.
Needless to say I had quite a bit of mommy guilt leading up to the trip so when I was given the opportunity to go to Kohl’s to purchase items from the new Magic at Play Disney Apparel line from Jumping Beans, well, I jumped at the chance. I figured the next best thing to meeting Mickey might be wearing Mickey. At least that’s what I hoped.
Jumping Beans makes clothes for babies through size 7 so only my youngest benefitted. For a kid who has an older brother, he has very few clothes that are new, so this was a pretty good deal for him.
I am usually not a branded-clothes type of mom. My mother passed on her aversion to buying anything that looked like advertising for another company, so I tend to shy away from clothes for my kids that are obviously anything. I was pleasantly surprised at the Magic at Play line. So pleasantly suprised I wanted to buy the whole line for my boy! Oh, and don’t even get me started on the little girl stuff. The tutus!
The adorable Minnie dresses!
I couldn’t get enough. My niece might have made out like a bandit if I hadn’t already bought her her fill of tutus recently.
For the boys, the clothes were all athletic styles, so it fit my rough and tumble only-likes-cotton-man perfect. What fit me perfectly is that the Disney design was subtle and classic. The t-shirts looked like the old-time (ok, my childhood old-time) Disney apparel with banded sleeves and Mickey sans glitter or sparkle.
I loved every piece and had to narrow it down to avoid spending all my money. The prices were reasonable, but not if I wanted to buy the entire collection!
We finally settled for a few pairs of Mickey shorts and the cutest Mickey tshirt that made my other kids jealous. Clearly he was happy with my choices.
I’m not sure he took them off the whole time I was away.
I may not have gotten to take my kids to Disneyland (yet!) but at least they got a little Mickey close to their hearts while I was gone, thanks to Kohls and Jumping Beans Magic at Play line!
