While I was at the Time To Play (Top Toys 2009) event I received a Princess Tiana doll (which I have yet to open and it will magically and I loved to add it to my collection of dolls of color. Then at the Blogalicious conference I actually got a special snippet of The Princess and the Frog movie (they were one of the sponsors). Look I am no princess girl so I was excited about the fact that this was going to be a movie with the first Black princess, but the the princess bit riled me a little. Anyway I was (super) thrilled to hear that this is not the typical story, as the prince (the handsome Prince Naveen) does not turn back into a prince when she kisses him, but she turns into a frog. I won’t spill any more of the movie, you would have to see it when it hits the circuit in December.

But the magic of the movie has extended to toys. I had the wonderful opportunity to review the Disney The Princess and the Frog Tiana Musical Instruments Play Set.  Since I already had many reasons to love the movie I was pretty keen to check out the toys. Musical toys are always welcome since it is not electronic and also it encourages free play. We actually have a box of musical instruments so I was keen to see whether this would make a great addition. Set includes a drum and 2 drumsticks, trumpet, ukulele, lightning bug shaker, and a pair of cymbals.

Pros

  • No batteries. I simply love this!
  • Musical instruments promote play.
  • Toys with rhythm that you create is always a great sign.
  • The “Mardi Gras” theme of the design is a fresh theme and adds the pizazz to the regular mute themes.
  • The ukulele in the set is a nice change from the typical list instruments that come in the musical sets. I also simply love the “real” music you can make with it.
  • The trumpet is a wonderful addition for that older kid trying to add more than just blowing a plain horn or whistle.

Cons

  • The drum has a paper top that is not the most secure. Honestly for a great set the drum is a downer.
  • The trumpet, though wonderful, may be a tad difficult to blow through.

Disclosure: I received the musical set to review.

    Those are so cute. When I thought about the toys that would come out for retail, I never thought instruments. Duh, why not (Well I am a little slow). But what a great idea. I too love that Princess Tiana is of color. I love the rich New Orleans culture in the movie too (Well the little snippets that I did see on tv. I am not sure if my daughter will grasp that aspect, but she can appreciate it for what it is. She love the part where Princess Tiana turns into a frog. She screamed at the tv (at the commercial) “That is not how it goes”. LOL but now she loves the idea of something new and surprise twist. We can not wait to see it. Thanks for the review. It was nice to see the cute toys.

    Oh and I wonder why they didn’t do a sturdier drum top?
