There are some outstanding deals going on for Cyber Monday on all of these Moana presents, that you could do an entire Moana Advent Calendar, or a Moana-a-Day for Hanukkah. You could even deck your kids out in all the available Moana and the Ocean, including a Moana Doll & Me outfit for your gal and her American Girl doll!
For the Barbie lover, there is a classic Moana doll from The Disney Store and she comes with an oar. I know this will be under our Christmas tree this year, because Madilyn love, love, loves her Barbie doll and she loves Moana, so it just works.
For the Tsum Tsum collectors in your house, there is an entire collection of Moana Tsum Tsums available, and they’re some of the cutest little bundles of cotton I’ve ever seen. I just want to love them and hug them to pieces.
Until, of course, I saw a large, tattooed, plushy Demigod, named Maui and then I decided I’d rather love and hug and squeeze HIM to pieces. He’s the perfect plush for your son OR daughter, and his hair is tres chic.
Since my teenage son is obsessed with all things Alan Tudyk, my vote for best Christmas gift for a teenage boy is this Hei Hei Plush. He’s way too cool to admit he’s sleeping with it, but he’ll definitely admit to looking at it as he laughs about how Alan Tudyk went to Juliard to one day voice a chicken in a Disney movie. Epic.
Not to be left out, the strong willed girl on your holiday shopping list will love the Moana plush. She embodies all the things a strong, able-bodied girl should, and she’s a decision maker. Is there anything Moana can’t do? She CAN find her way onto your holiday shopping list and you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home. The only crowds you’ll have to battle are the ones you have in your own kitchen at dinner time.
The sweet little pig, Pua is also available in plush form, and so are the menacing Kakamora plush set, which I totally see getting thrown around my house like bowling balls. Hmmm…there might be a fun game there.
I practice the “One thing they want, one thing they need, something to wear, something to read” rule at Christmas for my kids, and a great book for this Christmas is Moana and the Ocean. There is such love for the ocean in the Polynesian culture, and a really beautiful relationship with water. This would be a great book for your kids to pick up a love and respect for the ocean and a culture that might be different from their own.
Remember when “the thing” was Hulk hands, and Iron Man Hands, or Thor’s hammer? Well, move over, Avengers! This year Maui is stealing the spotlight with his Moana and the Ocean. Just think of all the shapes your little one will be able to shift into with Maui’s hook on hand. Imagination takes center stage with this fun light up fishhook.
In keeping with the “One thing they want, one thing they need, something to wear, something to read” rule, Havianas has some adorable Moana flip flops right now that you can get on sale during Cyber Monday. Make sure you snag these up QUICK! Havianas are our family’s favorite flip flops. They last a lot longer than other rubber flops and withstand the heat and sand we encounter at the beach so often in our coastal town.
For kids who love to play with LEGOS, the Moana LEGO set would blow them all away.
These two fun adventure play sets are the perfect way to spark imagination in young children. Let them set sail with Maui and Moana and defeat Te Ka, Tamatoa, the Kakamora, and any other evil villains they can think of as they lead themselves in imaginative play.
You could always get some Fandango gift cards, they’re a perfect gift for a teenager, or a family who wants to go to the movies but can’t always justify the cost. If you know someone who hasn’t seen Moana yet, get them some gift cards and attach them to one of these awesome Moana gifts as a kind of a HINT HINT!
Moana is out in theaters NOW! Follow up with all things Moana right here on The Dirty Floor Diaries!
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess & the Frog) and produced by Osnat Shurer (Lifted, One Man Band), Moana sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
