Ty to the Rescue

Thirteen long years after I moved to Australia my brother and his family finally made it out to Australia for a holiday and boy, did we have fun. We had been counting down for months and managed to make loads of beautiful memories which I hope will last a lifetime. Of course when the welcome is so warm and wonderful the goodbye is utterly heartbreaking too and we’ve all been rather down this week. Time to cheer up my sad girls with some Ty surprises:

From the moment my little ladies first discovered Ty Beanie Boos they were absolutely taken by their big shiny eyes and they have been on every birthday and Christmas wishlist since. They are always checking the shops to (hopefully one day) find that one special Beanie Boo that shares their name or even their birthday. So far only Harriet has been in luck after adopting Harriet the Horse but we’ll keep looking!

Huge and huggable, mini and magical, fluffy and funky, sweet and shimmery… there are so many Ty creatures to choose from. Real Ty Beanie Boos fans can now partner up with their Ty friends in even more ways with the stylish Ty Gear collection. They can complete their favourite outfit with bags, purses, wristlets and even slippers and slides, you’ll be guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.

Miss Sybbie never leaves the house without some tiny treasures stuffed into small pockets so she is completely in her element with her new ‘Whimsey’ Ty Fashion Backpack (RRP $39.99) to keep things safe, doesn’t her smile say it all? Juliet decided on the colour-changing Ty Fashion Purse (RRP $34.99) which turns out to be an excellent way to sneak one of our baby rabbits out of the house, it blends in perfectly! Of course I know my girls very well so her cheeky grin gave her away and bunny was safely returned to its mum.

These three lucky girls slid their feet into some eye catching Ty Fashion Slides (RRP $24.99) and I love how their footwear shows their personalities so well. Shiny and sparkly for Juliet, rainbow pastel magic for Olivia and the cutest kitties (complete with pink bow) for Hattie, there really is a perfect Ty character for everyone. What is your Ty Fashion style?

It’s time to get your Mickey Mouse ears ready! The countdown is on until Disney On Ice twirls its way into Australia and Disney fans of all ages are starting to get very excited. The chilly weather has well and truly arrived here in Adelaide and there’s no better way to enjoy the cold than with ice skates on.

Last weekend we were lucky enough to get a little taste of the Disney magic to come when we hit the ice at Adelaide’s Ice Arena and got to meet Mickey Mouse up close… My girls’ hopes of ever becoming a Disney princess on ice skates may not be very likely to come true (staying upright was a lot harder than they expected!) but they had so much fun!

The real Disney On Ice cast is unbelievably talented and seeing them perform some of their mind-blowing moves was a fabulous treat. Where we were wobbly they were whirling, we were a little shaky and scared but they are simply spectacular… One thing is clear: the audience is in for an amazing experience with Disney On Ice celebrates Mickey and Friends!

If you haven’t booked your tickets just yet there is still time, thanks to the addition of extra shows throughout the country now even more people will be able to enjoy the magic of Disney On Ice. During the checkout process you can take a look at the seating plan of your local venue and select your family’s preferred seats (but of course there is plenty to see all around the rink so the view is great from every angle!). Children under 23 months are free if seated on their parents’ lap and concession tickets are available.
