The Little Mermaid

I remember watching The Little Mermaid as a young girl. It was by far one of my favorite movies growing up… and I am more than thrilled to get to share that joy with my kids now. In fact, as of October 1st, The Little Mermaid is now on Blu-Ray and we have watched it a dozen times already.

But it has not stopped there. Actually, it started months ago. We grabbed The Little Mermaid toys and even had a fun Under the Sea party. Adding the Blu-Ray to our movie collection definitely helps make it complete.

Look at this stuff
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who has everything?

Together we have been enjoying not only the movie itself, but the bonus features as well. I think our favorite clip is the special behind-the-scenes moment where lyricist Howard Ashman coaches Jodi Benson through “Part of That World.” Just watch and you will see why.

Of course, I think our love for the movie was fueled even more by Colby’s trip to LA when he actually got to meet Jodi Benson. She even sang for them! Amazing, right?! Needless to say, we are a bit obsessed with all things “The Little Mermaid” around here. How can you not be?
