Tangled review and giveaway

What can I say
I loved this movie.

Mr Magoo didnt but only because he realised it was a "movie" so he refused to watch it. (Yes I am the only mother of a 5 year old who hates movies)

The Princess refered to it as the scary movie and only watched the first half of it (twice) And during that time gave a running commentary on who liked who and who didnt like who and who was scary (including  the mean horse) (yes she has just turned 3)

But I am doing the review so my opinion counts and
I loved it.
I was actually so super excited to get a copy to review as I had wanted to see it at the movies but as mentioned above I have a child who refuses to go. So since I had wanted so badly to see it before I jumpped at thie opportunity.

Tangled has a modern day twist on the Rapunzel fairy tale.
I loved how in this Disney film the girl in the story can kick ass when needed.  In todays world I love to see such role models for my own Princess. (and for anyone who knows, we call her a Princess very tongue-in-cheek)

The side characters help make the film like Pascal the chameleon and Maximus the horse. Then the hero of the story is Flynn Rider, he just cracks me up.

During the movie I laughed (a lot) and even actually cried at one moment.  (yes I am sad I know) I loved it and I am sure the little people in your life will too

So if you would like to win a copy of the  Tangled dvd (which will be released on the 11th of May)

For the record I cried too ;)

I must say I love that my girls love Bindi Irwin. She's passionate about what she believes in and is not about how sexy and grown up you can be.

Ooh I hope I win-my kids love this movie so much. We even have the sound track!

My girls would love to see this this we never got to the cinemas to see it!!

I think the best role models for little girls are their mums, I pray everyday that I'm a good positive influence in their lives. So far I seem to be doing a good job!

My thought is not so much of a role model as such but to be who they are and believe in themselves..... to understand right from wrong,. develop their own personalities and in general to learn to be responsible for themselves and their actions...
Of course this all comes with the guidance of loving parents.....
