Disney Princess Jasmine Lego Set Review

The Lego Disney Princess Jasmine set is since yesterday part of my collection. It’s a cute little set full of small creations. Highlights are the magic lamp & magic carpet, the fountain is cute too and of course Rajah and Princess Jasmine.

The magic lamp existed already since the Lego genie figure, the carpet is a cute build with Lego DP Jasmine 41061 (4)2 printed parts with pattern. I would have used a single 1 x 1 plate with clip on the corners and 2 x 1 plate in the middle to represent the rugs tassels.  Little Rajah looks so cute, I see Lego even made a temple in honor of this feline. Princess Jasmine herself comes as a mini doll, a new minifigure model aimed at girls, and though I prefer a real minifigure this is the next best thing. The best part is her wig that has the iconic hairband and pony tail with bands.

But there are of course  things that I would change to make the set more accurate. Take the lamp standard, for example wich would work in a Cave of Wonders playset with Aladdin, Abu,and Genie but not here and include.2 more leaves to the make silly palm tree more real and perhaps make a little table for the meat. I would make the market stall stand out a stud by moving the slope pieces forward and put 1 x 1 bricks behind it. Or nix it and give the tower aka Jasmine’s bedroom a better look. For example I would add 2 more round walls and a round fence to make the balcony, yes that little gold fence is the famous balcony, And then move the tower tops together to from a complete roof.

At the end I’m happy to finally have an official Lego Aladdin set something I’ve been hoping for many years ever since Lego started producing sets based on Disney movies and characters back in the days of Mickey and friends. Putting up my Lego collector head I’ll put the Jasmine and Rajah & Carpet figures in my collection and take the set apart use the pieces elsewhere.

Aladdin The New Stage Musical Promo Pics

Check hese promo pics to get a feel of the costumes for the soon to open Aladdin musical. I’m not really a fan of Aladdin’s costume I think it doesn’t really resemble the animated character outfit. Carpet is just a random perzian rug but perhaps it works in the stage show. I love Jasmine’s costume specially the color matches cartoon Jasmine very well. But perhaps it’s a bit too skimpy for a family stage production. And I wonder why that poster has Sultan on it and not Genie or Jafar. I for one love to see how Jonathan Freeman looks as Jafar.

Oasis Date – Aladdin & Jasmine coloring page

It kind of connects with Hula Dance a recent coloring page, Aladdin and Jasmine escape the daily stress for fighting monsters and magic there too.
