Review: Tinkerbell and The Secret of the Wings

Jess McGlynnDecember 13, 2012

We were very lucky to be invited along to the Gala screening of Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings at the Mayfair on Sunday.  I’m not very well at the moment so it was nice to be able to treat myself and Meg to a special day out.

We started our afternoon by making some sparkly Christmas decorations before Meg got to be overawed and meet her heroine.  She didn’t stop talking about it for the rest of the day!

Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings is out in cinemas on December 14th and is the first of the Disney Fairies films to be shown in 3D.  This meant we got to wear some very funky glasses!

The Secret of the Wings tells the story of the ‘great divide’ between the warm world of Pixie Hollow and the forbidden Winter Woods where the Winter fairies live.  As curious as ever, Tinkerbell crosses the boundary into the Winter Woods where she meets Periwinkle, a fairy as mischievous as Tinkerbell.  Together they unravel a magical secret!

 As with all the previous Tinkerbell films, this is a lovely story ultimately about love and friendship.  It is absolutely perfect for Christmas with it’s wintery setting.

If you’re at all interested in film trivia – Periwinkle is the first Disney animated character to have her hair designed by a leading hair stylist.  Ken Paves (“the hottest hairdresser in Hollywood”) designed her look.  He can feel free to come and sort my hair out any day of the week!

And if you’re after some more fairy-filled adventure there is this lovely print at home treasure hunt you can do with your little ones as well as some lovely craft ideas and printable colouring sheets.  Meg is away at her Nana and Grandad’s at the moment but we will definitely be doing this when she gets back:
