|The four sets, front (top row) and back (bottom row)|
In Flight Fun for the Kids is my new series of articles about items I find that can occupy my children's time on a flight that are easy to manage and keep organized. Last week, I shared Disney magnetic drawing pads I found at a local department store. This week I am sharing Disney Magnetic Dolls.
We have four sets of these magnetic dolls: Beauty and the Beast, Tinker Bell, Cinderella and The Little Mermaid. Each set comes in a tin with the Princess or Tinker Bell on the front and their Princes on the back (Fawn is on the back of Tinker Bell's). The clothing and accessories are magnetic and stay in place in the tin. Each doll comes with several outfits. Included with the clothing are several of the key characters and elements in the stories. For example, the Beauty and the Beast set has three outfits for Belle, Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumiere, Cogsworth and several items from the Be Our Guest sequence during the movie, including the twirling napkins.

Beauty and the Beast Set
I will admit that though I love these, there are so many little pieces that I actually keep some ofthe smallest ones stored away. With Emily being just three, they can be easily swallowed or lost. I keep just the clothes and a few of the extra characters in each tin. When the girls are a little older, I will keep adding a few of the accessories to each set until eventually all the pieces are in one.
One of the best things about these magnetic dolls are the tin containers. All the extra pieces stay in place in the container while the girls are playing with them, even if they tip them upside down. Like I mentioned in my past article, one of the things I like to avoid on the airplane is constantly looking under the seat for the kids' toys that are dropped.
Santa delivered these sets to us for Christmas this past year, but if you are looking to purchase some, I saw them at Lakeside Collection and ABC Distributing for $4.95 each. I've only seen the four we have (Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Tinker Bell), but I am always on the look out for more. These are great for the flight and are so easy to keep organized.
