After spending the last 1.5 week cooped up inside with miserable kids surrounded by sick buckets I am very much feeling the Christmas stress. So much to do, so little time and only two sleeps left until the big day! So where does one go for awesome children’s gifts that are a guaranteed success? Smiggle of course!

At Smiggle they know exactly what’s hip and hot among the cool kids and this Christmas it’s all about the return of Anna and Elsa in Frozen 2. Whether you are team Anna or team Elsa, Smiggle has you covered with a wonderful range of Disney Frozen 2 goodies that is sure to make even the coldest of hearts melt in an instant:

Backpacks, lunchboxes, diaries, wallets… thanks to Smiggle you can take Anna and Elsa along wherever you go. It’s a close call between Anna’s pink and gold glitter hues or Elsa with her ice blue and silver shades, who is your favourite? If Elsa is your queen you can start the new school year in true Frozen style with the awesome Frozen 2 Elsa Pop Out Pencil Case (RRP $26.95).

Forget about boring pencil cases, this limited edition design is full of surprises. It has loads of secret slide-out drawers, flip-out flaps, blue buttons and cute compartments to store all your stationery. You can open the the top, the bottom and the sides and it even has a built-in pencil sharpener and calculator for those tricky math questions! Our miss 6 thinks the sparkling ‘melted ice’ in the top lid is pretty magical.

Smiggle’s 12-pack Scented Colouring Pencils (RRP $16.95) makes a great starting point for filling up that pencil case. Whip up a fragrant Christmas card for your family, create a welcome back artwork for your new teacher or record your holiday adventures in your diary using these 12 lovely colours. Each pencil has a unique scent that’s bursting to come out, simply rub to activate delicious fragrances like watermelon, donut, fairy floss and cinnamon.

Obviously the average temperature here in Australia is a little higher than in Arendelle, so hydration is an absolute must. With this pretty Frozen 2 Elsa Drink Bottle (RRP $19.95, 650ml) you will always have a fresh drink of water on hand, my kids pick transparent bottles so they can instantly see when it needs refilling (and I can see when it’s dirty). Mums love this bottle too because it has a removable straw for easy cleaning and is completely free from harmful BPA.

At 18 months old miss Hattie is proving to be a lady of few words, just like Sybil was. She may not say much but Harriet is very clear in what she likes (and dislikes!) and sure knows how to use her vocal cords when it comes to her favourite song. With three older sisters who are crazy about Frozen it is no surprise she can already ‘sing’ along too and I can’t wait to see four sets of little eyes light up next month when we surprise them with a visit to Disney On Ice presents Frozen:

From the moment the world first met royal sisters Anna and Elsa and fell head-over-heels in love with Olaf back in 2013 (really, it has been that long!) everyone has been waiting impatiently for the Frozen cast to put on their ice-skates once again and slide onto the smooth, slippery floor of Disney On Ice. Well the wait is over and they’re about to whirl into Australia, Disney On Ice presents Frozen arrives in Perth on June 2 and will visit Adelaide, Wollongong, Newcastle, Brisbane, Melbourne with the curtains closing in Sydney on July 17, 2017. Hot off the press: Due to overwhelming demand, Disney On Ice presents Frozen will return to Melbourne on July 22 and 23 for three additional shows. Grab your tickets while you can!

It promises to be a dazzling 2-hour experience featuring all your much-loved Frozen friends, your all-time favourite couple Mickey and Minnie as well as a host of beautiful Disney princesses and even a visit from loveable characters from Toy Story, Finding Nemo and The Lion King. With such a stellar cast the show is sure to please guests of all ages and I just love how the characters move around the entire stage so that every spectator, no matter where they sit, gets a great view of their personal faves.

Get ready to be amazed by a magical mix of dancing and singing, jaw dropping stunts and mind-blowing costumes, if you’ve every had the joy of seeing Disney On Ice you know it is a memory that will be treasured forever. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this unforgettable celebration of love and friendship, book your seats before they’re all gone!
