We came across the Shimmer and Shine TV show in 2016 and it became a fast favourite with my then-2 year old… It has remained a go-to and she enjoys it just as much now at 4. We have been keeping an eye out for Shimmer and Shine merchandise since we discovered the show… The amazing team from Mattel sent us one of their Shine dolls and one of their Leah dolls, knowing Charly’s love for the show.
The Shimmer and Shine story is simple enough… Shimmer and Shine are twin genies-in-training who grant 3 wishes a day to their best friend, Leah. Because they are still learning, there are always a few mistakes made along the way. The twins and Leah work together as a team to find solutions to the problems that arise and learn how to do better next time. The underlying message of team work, friendship and learning from mistakes resonate with young viewers. There are 3 seasons of the show so far.
The toy range is really lovely and perfect for your little ones to stretch their imagination in play. The Leah, Shimmer and Shine dolls are roughly 15cm tall, easy to hold for little hands. Charly has spent hours brushing their bright and beautiful hair with the combs that came along with the dolls, shaped like their pets.
There are also three lovely playsets available:
The Shimmer & Shine Mirror Room (Our prize)
It comes with the mirror room set, a Leah doll, her pet fox Parisa, six magic genie gems and a brush. If you turn the jewel on top of the playset, the mirror turns to reveal an image of Shimmer, Shine and the genies’ mentor, Princess Samira. You can use the included jewels to decorate the mirror or hide them behind the secret doors.
Shimmer and Shine Zeta’s Scooter
Zeta is a mischief-mkaing sorceress with an adorable dragon sidekick named Nazboo. This playset comes with a Zeta doll, Nazboo, a scooter with detachable sidecar and genie gems that can be stored in the scooter’s seat.
Shimmer and Shine Princess Samira’s Palace
Princess Samira is from Shimmer and Shine’s home, Zahramay Falls. She is their mentor and teacher and often steps in to help. This beautiful playset includes the Princess Samira doll, her pet peacock Roya, her throne and the magical genie gems that she occasionally rewards the genies-in-training with.
