Tangled - Review & Giveaway

To say that we're excited about this review and giveaway is an understatement. I took the kids to the cinema to see Tangled when it came out and we've been looking forward to the DVD release ever since.


(Media Release)
The tale begins with Mother Gothel and a magical flower which holds the key to eternal youth and beauty. Discovering the flower’s influence, Mother Gothel hides it for her own selfish needs, until the kingdom initiates a desperate search for the healing plant to cure the sick, pregnant Queen.


The glowing flower is found, and Baby princess Rapunzel is born with magical abilities in her golden locks. Still longing for her fountain of youth, Mother Gothel kidnaps Rapunzel and locks her away in a hidden tower for eighteen years, raising her as her own child.


Tower-bound, and led to believe the outside world is a dangerous place, Rapunzel (voiced by MANDY MOORE) has only her 70 feet long golden hair, her dreams, creative spirit, her pet chameleon Pascal and the mesmerising floating lights that she sees from her tower window every year on her birthday to keep her spirit alive.
Her life as she knew it is about to change when the kingdom’s handsome outlaw picks the wrong place to hide. In comes Flynn Rider (voiced ZACHARY LEVI), charming and on the run from the law with a stolen jewel. Stunned and caught off guard, Rapunzel does what she knows best and uses her long locks to capture him...

What follows is an fun filled adventure with bad guys, good guys, hilarious side kicks called Pascal and Maximus and a blossoming new love. The soundtrack is WONDERFUL and you'll find yourself singing along with the catchy songs in no time. Seriously!


Tangled is a return to the classic Disney films which I love. I'm not sure who loves this film more, me or my children :-)

  1. Oh I loved this movie so much. I am like you - not sure who loved it more, me or the kids. We went to see it at the movies too. I took my niece and she had never been to the cinema before. What a wonderful first movie for her.
    As for my favourite Disney princess - that's a hard one. I do love Rapunzel, she has so much spunk! And I love Mulan and Cinderella is such a beautiful story, I don't think I can decide on just one.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win :-)

  10. Lol, I love Zachary Levi in 'Chuck' and if there's a 'cool' horse in this movie then DD would love it too. I think my favourite Disney Princess would have to be Mulan as she doesn't start out as a princess but she fights for what she wants and ends up as one.

  11. My Daughter loves Rapunzel after watching this movie. I often catch her saying "Rapunzel Rapunzel let down your hair" so cute! She wants long hair just like her now :D

    But her all time favourite princess is Snow White. OMG she is Snow White mad....currently planning a Snow White 4th birthday party. Not my favourite of the princesses, I must admit. I was a Sleeping Beauty kinda gal :)

  16. How do I choose just one Disney princess? There are so many wonderful characters that I remember from my childhood, but if I had to choose I'd say Jasmin from Aladdin. She is so down to earth and she loves Aladdin despite his and her upbringing.

  17. My favourite Disney Princess is Cinderella. Who wouldn't love to have a fairy god mother transform them into a beautiful princess, and then win prince charming in the same night! I follow, but with private settings & as I am new to this don't know if you can see my email address or not. If not it is pickett5@adam.com.au

  20. As promised, my photo as an entry is on my facebook in an album called 'Dressup', this comment thing won't let me send a link. i'm meant to be Belle in her peasant dress, but yep, completely Alice in Wonderland. Belle has been my favourite since I first saw the movie when I was tiny.

  23. how can I choose a favorite when I love all disney, pixar, etc I must say that Belle from beauty and the beast springs to mind, the music is so catchy and fun and it teaches us that it is what is inside that matters most not the wrapper thanks for the chance ttfn nicole ;0)

  24. I don't know if Tinkerbell counts as a princess, but I like her attitude. I suppose she's more of a fairy.

  26. I LOVE Kids Disney movies and my sister saw this while working in Disney World and said it was awesome.
    To choose just one disney princess is very tough! I love so many of them!!! I think Ariel is my pick though.

  27. Ariel is my favourite princess. I would love to live "under the sea" just like her!

  28. I would have to say The Little Mermaid - Ariel, followed very closely by Tinkerbell.

  29. My daughter loved this movie (shhh and so did i ) she asks me everyday if tangled is out yet lol
    My fav princess of all time would have to be Cinderella - prince charming glass slipper and a dream come true what more can you ask for :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, wow! It's already this soon!! I was hoping to get in to see this when it came out at the cinema but decided that my daughter (at 2yo) was too young still to have that 'adventure' (even though she was in with me and a gf to see Sex and the City at 2wks old ... feeding then sleeping, lol). I also couldn't justify seeing it without her, so ... I can't wait to introduce her to this story!

    My favourite Disney princess('s) would have to be either Belle from Beauty & the Beast, or Cinderella as well. I know, 'traditional' and classic - but that's why I love them! My all-time favourite character would have to be Tinkerbell though - and if you could call her a 'princess', then so be it!

  33. Oh Gosh Rapunzel has to be the ultimate princess...The hair...OMg to have hair like that

  34. am following you as m_jelly

    While I live in hope that I could be Cinderella and a chiselled Prince Charming would knock on my door one day, I think it's more likely I will be more like Belle who settles for the 'great personality'.

    Can't choose a favourite though, I'll choose a princess pie.

  35. Jasmine from Aladdin. She is a tough cookie with a tiger. Need I say more.

  36. Cinderella, because she was meek and mild and generous, and she could sing!
