How the Grinch Stole Christmas is one movie that is watched every year in our household. Both the animated version and the live-action version starring Jim Carrey. When Manhattan Toy decided to offer me Dr. Seuss Cindy Lou Who and Dr. Seuss THE GRINCH in Santa Suit for the purpose of a review how could we say no! After all, what would Christmas be like without the Grinch? And where would the Grinch be without that loveable little girl who made his heart melt, Cindy Lou Who? You can’t have one without the other, can you?
You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
You really are a heel.
You’re as cuddly as a cactus,
You’re as charming as an eel,
You’re a bad banana with a greasy black peel.
Mommy and I just had to throw that song in if you’ve never heard it before. If you’ve never seen the movie you also need to as well. Both movies are amazing! You do not want to be a Grinch. The Grinch dresses up in a Santa outfit and stole all the presents, the trees, the food, everything that he thought Christmas was about. While stealing from one of the homes The Grinch encounters Cindy Lou Who. Little innocent Cindy Lou Who is getting a drink of water. The Grinch got her the water and continued to steal all her gifts. Poor Mr. Grinch. When the people of Whoville start singing without the gifts and all the trappings he realizes that Christmas is not about gifts. Christmas is all about spending time with your family and friends. It’s something that you cannot see. It’s about community!
We have seen so much of The Grinch but no-one has really paid much attention to Cindy Lou Who until now. Both Cindy Lou Who and the Grinch are plush figures suitable for ages 0+. The Grinch comes in his famous Santa hat and jacket while Cindy Lou Who comes in this pretty velvet dress, satin bow in her hair and plush slippers that are not removable. Maybe I should also mention that none of their clothing are removable, but I don’t mind that at all. They are also both posable and are the perfect size for little hands. Cindy Lou Who is 15″ tall while The Grinch is 16″. The Grinch even has a smile on his face, who would have thought that! Guess he’s not so mean after all.
I am really happy that Manhattan toy has decided to bring the two main characters of Who-ville to reality for us to share with you. I am really enjoying playing with both The Grinch and Cindy Lou Who and as you can see they both have a prominent place in my bed. They also both get my Two Tiny Thumbs Up!
