Little Mermaid Diamond Collection Blu-ray Out NOW!
The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition Out TODAY Oct 1st!
When I was little my favorite Disney movie was The Little Mermaid. I LOVED Ariel – I even told my mom that I wanted to be a mermaid when I grew up! I watched The Little Mermaid almost daily on VHS. I loved it so much that I still watch it. On VHS. Yep, I am old skool!
When I heard The Little Mermaid was coming out on Blu-ray & DVD I was positively giddy with excitement! I couldn’t wait to get it! I was sent my very own copy! This meant introducing it – they way it is meant to be watched – to my twins. Although Ursula is a bit scary at times, my daughter fell in love with Ariel. I love hearing them sing “Under The Sea” in their car seats, pretending to be Ariel and Flounder, and asking to watch The Little Mermaid again and again.
