We've watched Moana before, but we all loved it and loved watching it again! Look at how serious they looked (while having our #MoanaNightIn dinner), listening to the legend of Maui and Tafiti! We were laughing lots during the whole movie though, especially when the chicken Hei Hei appeared!

The Singing Moana Doll and Friends by JAKKS Pacific is definitely the Moana doll to get for little fans! The pack comes with a gorgeous Moana doll, Hei Hei and Pua figures, and they are super cute!

Look at the details on Moana *insert heart eyes emoji*! Those patented eyes are just so beautiful. I absolutely love Moana's outfit and said to Abby that it's totally wearable (you can get the outfit from Disney store!)! She actually agreed with me! I wouldn't even mind to get her the feather outfit Moana was wearing at the end of the show. So pretty!

But yes! The quality of this doll is amazing, and I'm not sure if it's just me, but I think JAKKS Pacific has done some improvements to the doll's hair and scalp, as well as the packaging for it? Moana's hair came out (from the packaging) beautifully, and quite evenly around her scalp too!

The Singing Moana Doll already has batteries (3 x AAA) in, you just need to flip the switch from Demo mode on the right to "On" on the left ("Off" is in the middle) and press the necklace to hear the song, which is longer than the demo mode, and different actual movie phrases. The necklace will glow too! You can watch this video clip I uploaded for examples of the song and phrases:

Moana's Magical Necklace by JAKKS Pacific is absolutely stunning! You can see the attention to details there, and the necklace looks just so "real"! If you look at the pictures above carefully, you can see a shimmer on the blue shell and the pearls. The necklace opens up to reveal the embedded Heart of Tafiti (not removeable hehe) inside a Mother-of-Pearl-like shell.

The necklace doesn't come with sound, which would be a bit weird because Moana's necklace doesn't make any sound in the movie, but the Heart of Tafiti inside will glow in the way it did in the movie when you press the button on the back! It looks just like the real thing with the necklace closed, and still mesmerising when it's open.

You can see the necklace glow in the following video clip. Just a note that the background sound is from the TV and not the necklace! I was contemplating of switching the audio off for the video clip, but I liked how helpful Clay was for this filming, so I left it on:

We loved the movie and I know we'll be watching it again soon! We also love the quality of the doll, figures and the necklace by JAKKS Pacific! Pua and the necklace is my favourite out of all (so I'm keeping the necklace haha)!

Will you be having a #MoanaNightIn this bank holiday?
