Winx Club - Do You Believe in Magic?

Thursday, July 26, 2012


Imagine waking up one morning in your ordinary bed, in your ordinary house, and greeting your normal parents before heading out on a normal day and then bumping into a fairy who will forever change your life. You discover you are no longer that ordinary girl from the city of Gardenia who leads a perfectly normal life but rather Princess Bloom, one of the strongest fairies in the magical world and the last survivor of planet Domino. Soon you find yourself packing your bags and moving away to Alfea College, the finest fairy school in all the realms, where you will make new friends and form the Winx Club.


Winx Club is Nickelodeon's first girl-targeted animated t.v. show, a modern fantasy adventure series starring fairies who rely on their strength, smarts, teamwork, and magical powers to fight villains and protect the world from evil. The six fashion savvy fairies, Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa, Tecna and Aisha, each have their own unique power that helps define their own individuality and defeat villains as well. The Winx characters were created to represent today’s modern girl, heroines that girls can relate to. With the aim of providing positive messaging, the show empowers girls to embrace self-expression, friendship, adventure, magic and fashion.





My children sat down to watch the screener of Winx Club and were instantly mesmerized. They loved it so much, they insisted on watching it again and again in the subsequent days. I'm sure they will be thrilled once season five of Winx Club launches throughout Canada on YTV and Nickelodeon Canada. My only hope is that the show will introduce new characters who have different body proportions than the ones depicted in the show.


For review, we were sent the entire collection of Winx Club 11.5” Deluxe Believix Dolls, perfect for recreating magical adventures and role-play scenarios. These dolls feature the six friends with eleven points of articulation, outfits and beautiful hinged wings that are easily removable. I found it remarkable how the points of articulation made the dolls seem so life-like. Each doll also comes with a magical membership card that unlocks exclusive content on Nick.com.


My daughter ended up picking Bloom and my son, believe it or not, insisted on having Tecna. My daughter has already given one of the remaining dolls to her friend as a birthday gift and we have two more birthday girls who will get one of their own as well this summer.


Currently, there are a few dolls available for purchase online at toysrus.ca. The entire collection of Winx Dolls won't be available until Fall 2012. In the meantime, you can explore the world of Winx at toysrus.ca. But you don't have to wait until this fall to have your very own Winx doll. Nickelodeon Canada has offered a full set of dolls to give away to one of my Canadian readers. Simply enter using the Rafflecopter form below.
