I have been waiting for this movie to arrive for a year — maybe more. Beauty and the Beast is one of my all-time favourite Disney films, and I can’t wait to see how the animated feature will be adapted with real humans when it finally comes to the big screen on March 17, 2017.
So, here’s our plan…
Miss Q’s going to get dressed up in her best Belle threads and we’re going to have a princess date. Don’t blame me if we sing too loudly in the theatre.
Come and play!
Want to celebrate this timeless tale with a bunch of other Beauty and the Beast fans? Drop by any Toys R Us store in Canada on March 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a special play date event. Kids are invited to make and take home a Play-Doh rose, and they can also enter to win a Beauty and the Beast prize pack in-store.
While you’re there, check out some of the new Beauty and the Beast toys and collectibles from Hasbro. They’re really impressive — especially the smaller pieces. They have so much detail and they’re proving to make for great imaginative play in our house.
Belle’s likeness to Emma Watson isn’t bad, either!
Shop ’til you drop

Win a “beauty-ful” prize
Win a Beauty and the Beast prize pack worth $180! Between now and March 19 at 11:59 p.m., enter to win some of Hasbro’s most collectible Beauty and the Beast dolls and figures. (Hint: I’m not even letting Miss Q open the Deluxe Ball Gown Belle — she’s going into strict hiding!)
One lucky winner will walk away with:
