Another Lego Disney Princess set-Ariel’s Amazing Treasures

Both the children received some money from Grandad. Little Sis chose to buy Lego Disney Princess 41050 – Ariel’s Amazing Treasures in our local toy shop. She has quite a few of the Lego Disney Princess sets and really wanted this one.

  • Explore the beautiful coral reef and the pretty golden gates
  • Search for objects and hide them away in the treasure chest
  • Look for the pearl in the shell and help Ariel practise singing
  • Swim through the gates and play tag with Flounder the fish
  • Accessories include diamond, binoculars, trident, and starfish

Ariel's Amazing Treasures

This is quite a small set and Little Sis wanted to build it herself. The age guide is 5-12 but she completely surprised me by building the whole thing herself! I sat with her but she found the bricks she needed for each step and built it. Sad times, mummy no longer gets to build Lego for her!

It’s a lovely Lego set to accompany The Little Mermaid film and instantly recognisable. When built there are 3 parts: the golden gates, treasure chest and coral reef.

This goes really well with our other Lego Disney Princess sets but I have to admit we’re running out of room to display them!

Making our own sunshine

I’m sure you’ve noticed that the weather hasn’t been so great recently. We’re lucky that the children love to craft so we spent the morning making our own sunshine.

Paper plate sunshine

First we painted paper plates then we drew around their hands and cut out the shapes.

We glued the hands around the paper plate and added on a pair of sunglasses.

A trip to fruit towers

We received an invitation to Innocent fruit towers to learn more about smoothies and why they are good for you. We got to visit some new stations including Wood Lane

and Ladbroke Grove. It was sunny for once!

We arrived at fruit towers and got straight to work making our own smoothie.

The children loved their visit. As well as making smoothies they had fun making fruit and veg heads, painting using fruit and veg and playing on the coconut shy.


We were also able to sample the brand new fruit & veg smoothies which are shortly hitting the shelves.


We had a lovely time and the children really want to go back and visit again soon!
