Disney's Vampirina Toys! *Review*

Who loves Vamipirina? We do, we do!! For those who aren't aware who Vampirina is, she is Vee, Disney's vampire who moves from Transylvania to Pennsylvania to open a local bed and breakfast which is named the Scare B&B for visiting vampires, ghouls and goblins! The Hauntley family have to learn to adapt and do things the Pennsylvania 'way' even when Vampirina (Vee) is at school. It's fun, engaging and enjoyable to watch.

We're relatively new to Vampirina in the Blogging Beautifully household but we love it.....and I say we because I enjoy watching it too! The theme tune certainly gets stuck in your head and the storylines are easy to follow engaging and fun for young children to enjoy. 

Recently we were sent a huge bundle of Vamirina goodies to feature and review and when they arrived Elarna couldn't wait to get her teeth into them (pardon the pun) and test them out, there was actual squeals of delight when she opened the on to discover more!

First up was the amazing Scare B&B (RRP £49.99) *New for Autumn*
On first glance this looks amazing, now this does require a little bit of patience to put together but it is very simple, there are a few bits included that need to be attached and stickers need to be applied. Once set up there is three spooktacular levels and something to be discovered on each floor, the clear, glittery stairs flip up and down to allow access to each floor.

On the bottom floor is the kitchen with an opening front door and magically rising food as well as an opening fridge door. On the middle floor there is a magic bookcase which transforms into a day bed, then on the next floor is a spooky record player that moves as Vee takes a spin on the rotating disc. There are also 6 spots throughout the house that you can position Vee on and make her magically glow. You can also magically extend the bedroom tower to reveal magical growing portraits. Also included are 2 figurine's one being glowing Vee as well as tables, chairs, sofa, bed and bat pillow. 

The attention to detail on the B&B is great from the black bats and the grating outside the house to the pictures and special little touches within the house.  It's huge and sturdy and encourages lots of imaginative play which I love. This is already a well played with toy in our house and a must for any Vampirina fan.

Next we have the rather cool Vampirina backpack set (RRP £24.99) * New for Autumn*
Included in this set is a bootastic backpack, honestly it is so cute and a light and sound necklace, webtastic sunglasses and some glittery bat wing hair clips and some sticker sheets to accessorize the backpack as desired. The necklace and glasses have been a huge hit with Elarna to the point where she actually wants to take them in to her bed with her at night! We loved this backpack set, although the backpack doesn't fit a huge amount in it you can pop a few small items inside like necklaces, figurines etc. It's the perfect size for my three year old. 

There was a fabulous Vampirina Fangtastic Friends set (RRP £29.99) *Existing Line*
We love these sets as they really are good value for money, the set comes with 10 characters from the show and enhance the play for the scare B&B. Each figure features either poseable arms of glittery accents, they really are fab! I keep finding Vampirina characters throughout the house! 

Also sent was this awesome Hantley's Mobile Vehicle (RRP £29.99) *Existing Line*
Elarna loves this car, she really enjoys making it transform into a spooky drive in cinema. Featuring a table, popcorn and Vee this a lovely pre existing item in the Vampirina range. It's a really good size and pushes along nicely, it's very simple for the child to convert from vehicle to drive in movie theatre too, it's been very popular with Elarna, it's another item that accompanies her to bed!

Also we were sent a Vampirina glove and headband set as well as collectible Boo figures (RRP £2.99) and Best Ghoul Friends set (RRP £7.99) *All new for Autumn* 

These were all fabulous additions to the already brilliant Vampirina range. I can honestly say Elarna was over the moon with all of these items, there was nothing negative we can say about them as they have been played with and enjoyed for many hours already. I guess the only thing she wasn't so keen on were the gloves and headband as you can see below, she was thrilled...... but perhaps with time she'll learn to love them!

All items are available are many large retailers including Smyths, Argos and all good toy stores as well as online. There is going to be an amazing Twitter party hosted by UK Mum TV held on Thursday 25th October 1pm - 3pm to celebrate all things Vampirina, make sure you head over and use the hashtag #VampirinaToys to join us and be in the chance of winning some prizes, see you there!

* Please note we were kindly sent the items free of charge in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts are our own.
