Nothing brings two sisters together like a brand new toy that reminds them of themselves. My girls are typical sisters- best friends one moment and archnemesis the next. Their imaginative play is one of my favorite things to watch, as I know one day they will grow up and these moments will be a thing of the past. When Shimmer and Shine were first introduced to Nickelodeon, my oldest daughter immediately felt a connection between the show and her own life with her sister. It wasn’t long before my middle daughter took notice and they looked forward to their after-school routine of unwinding together while watching Shimmer and Shine.
A few weeks ago we brought Shimmer and Shine into our home and took them on an adventure. The Shimmer and Shine Genie Dance 2-Pack is exclusively at Walmart. My oldest connects most with Shine because she is her favorite color, blue, while her little sister loves Shimmer because she’s pink. The set comes with both dolls which sing and dance, and create the perfect accessory for pretend play. Since that morning we decided we were going to take a train ride to the North Pole, my girls eagerly packed their dolls and brought them along for the ride. Before the trip, their Shimmer and Shine dolls needed to get properly primped for the occasion! Both dolls come with their own brush to create fun hairstyles.
While getting ready, the girls had fun dancing with their dolls and fixing their hair for the occasion. They all sat together while reading a Christmas story about a trip to the North Pole on a magical train. The only thing missing was matching Elf pajamas for our Shimmer and Shine dolls on their special trip. Our road trip was about 3 hours long by car, and then an additional hour and a half by train. The entire ride up their clutched their dolls and created fun scenarios mimicking what they watch on TV. Their favorite feature of the dolls is that they can be synchronized with each other when they sing by simply pressing the buttons on both their foreheads simultaneously.
I think it’s safe to say everyone had a fun making memories and taking an adventure. You can purchase the Shimmer and Shine Genie Dance 2-Pack from Walmart!
