Autumn’s first month is here, but we can still taste the sweetness of the summer. The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the wind is soft. The nights are rather chilly, so there is definitely a change going on.

During our trip to Denmark, we visited the Disney Store. I did not just buy a cute Funko Pop box, but even an Animators Mini Doll set. Could not resist! One of the walls had shelfs filled with Disney Animators’ in all kind of sizes and I did not know which one to pick. Had to make a quick decision when one of the workers came and said that they will close in 10 minutes.
|Look at that face, she is up to something!|
I picked Merida, from the movie ”Brave” and she was released in the summer 2016, so she was pretty new. I have not seen this movie, yet, but the things I have heard and the trailer makes me think that it is different to the other movies about the princesses.
Merida is a bit tomboyish and she wants to take control of her own destiny, and yes don’t we all want to do that. She is bold, brave, stubborn and does not seem like an ordinary princess. I like it and I think that we will get along just fine.

The doll set is packed in a little handbag-like hard plastic box and in this box you can find Merida, all impish and charming with freckles, her horse Angus (this one really rocks!), two arrows plus the bow and a target, a doll for Merida and a lyre. There is even a dark figurine, that looks like her family. The box reminds me of my childhood, when I owned a little yellow suitcase. Inside I had my pens, paper, eraser, my Sindy doll and my Barbie. On the outside I had stamps that I had collected from different places and shops, mostly those you get for free - because you could behave. It was rather different times back then.

Well, anyway. The doll is just 5 inches, 13 cm. A cute little one. I like her just as she is, even if I have seen these Disney Animators’ with tiny obitsu bodies and different face ups. But her hair, so stiff and I wonder what I should do about that….
