The Little Mermaid
When Riinu was about 1.5-2 years old, she got a present from my US host-parents: a DVD of the Little Mermaid. We tried to watch it, but she got so scared that started to cry. She still cried when we tried to watch it again at 2.5 years. And she did not want to see it at 3.5 years. At the age of 4, she still didn't show much interest. The fear was there.
But then - the princess era arrived. Princess books, princess dresses at Marta's place and all this. Ariel, the Little Mermaid, became her favorite character among all the Cinderellas, Snow-Whites and others. So one day this fall, she discovered that we have the Ariel-DVD!
And now, at the age of 4.5, it has become her very favourite. She watched it the day before yesterday, yesterday (we stayed home because she looked like she was getting sick) and today (she was a bit sick). Tonight she insisted on watching it again. We didn't, however, but found something else to do. Just for change.
Her favorite part is about Ariel and the Prince getting together. Today she said, when watching them get married: "It is so beautiful that it makes me cry". And indeed, there were little tears in her eyes...
By the way, the movie is all in English, I have not translated it to her and she has all figured it out by herself.
