Shimmer and Shine Dress Up Trunk Review

Shimmer and Shine is the latest cartoon to have captured my daughters imagination.  It’s a rather charming animated series that followers the story of twin sisters, Shimmer and Shine, who happen to be of the genie persuasion.  Throw sparkle and magic together and you have the perfect combination for it’s young audience.

The girls were lucky enough to be the sent the Shimmer and Shine Dress Up Trunk to try out very recently.  They were very excited as they are two young ladies who like to dress up as their favourite characters A LOT so to receive a toy like this was perfect for them.

When they saw the dress up trunk they were very keen to get into it.  The trunk itself was very pretty and decorated with the Shimmer and Shine characters.  The trunk is also quite big so it can be used to store the Shimmer and Shine accessories in after it’s been opened.  It would be the perfect gift if you were adding it to the Shimmer and Shine dress up set, as you would have the perfect place to keep your genie outfits safe.

Shimmer and shine genie slippers

The Shimmer and Shine Dress Up Trunk contains a pair of cute genie slippers that the girls instantly fell in love with.  I think it was the Shimmer and Shine badges on each of them that they loved so much.  The two bangles were also a hit as they come with 12 interchangeable jewels that are different shapes and colours.  The girls soon got the hang of spinning the dial on the genie bottle, and adding the correct jewel to the bangle.  It made playing with the Shimmer and Shine dress up trunk even more magical.

Shimmer and shine accessories toys

My daughters other obsession at the moment is their hair, and they love putting clips in and having different hairstyles.  This Shimmer and Shine set also comes with 2 genie bottle shaped hair clips which are essential if you want to recreate the big genie hairstyles from the show.  I will have to draw the line at dying their hair blue and pink, well for now anyway, but the rest of the Shimmer and Shine accessories get a big thumbs up from us.

We were sent the Shimmer and Shine Dress Up Trunk for the purposes of this review but all thoughts and opinions are our own.  The Shimmer and Shine Dress Up Trunk is available from Toys R Us priced £12.99
