Just like a Disney princess needs her tiara, Minnie Mouse wouldn’t be Minnie without her bow. In fact, my grandson recently reminded me of this fact when I inadvertently referred to a Mickey keychain as being Minnie. “No, Grandma. It’s Mickey. See – there’s no bow.” Yep, everyone knows Minnie has a bow. (And for that matter, Daisy Duck wouldn’t be seen without her lovely bow either!)
So naturally when any self-respecting, Disney-loving girl heads to a Disney Park, or just wants to embrace her DisneySide on a normal day around the Clubhouse, she absolutely must have the proper fashion accessory – a Disney bow!
If you’re looking for just the right bow, look no further than Little Heron Co. I was recently pixie-dusted with the chance to receive a few of these bows in exchange for my honest review. The timing was absolutely perfect because we had a trip planned with the grandkids, and my 10-year-old granddaughter, Grace, was excited to serve as a model.
Little Heron offers several sizes and styles of bows. “Classic” bows, which are essentially just the bow (no “tail”) come in 3 sizes to accommodate girls of all ages. “Sailor” bows, which have a slight tail, are available in 2 different sizes. They also offer “schoolgirl” bows which have a tail but are a little narrower. And relatively new to the shop are adult sized headbands. They were kind enough to send us an assortment – we received an adult headband, 2 mini sailor bows, a large sailor bow, a large classic, and a medium classic. Talk about some major pixie-dust!
The first thing we (well, I) noticed about the bows was the quality fabric and craftsmanship. It is durable, ready to take on whatever adventure your little Minnie may be planning. Sometimes we’ve had bows which are so flimsy they last for about one outing, then begin to rip or fray. These bows aren’t like that! The first thing Grace noticed about the bows was the adorable prints! They definitely all had a Disney flair, but they didn’t “scream” Disney. You could easily wear these bows anywhere! My husband even remarked some of them were almost like wearing your very own hidden Mickey! My favorite was the black with white polka dots and a bright pink Minnie bow printed right at the knot of the bow. It was unmistakably Minnie-inspired, yet neutral enough to accessorize any outfit. Honestly, all the fabrics were simply fun and fabulous!
Another aspect of the bows from Little Heron that I love are the clips used. They are alligator style, so they will stay in place even on the littlest Minnie’s with very fine hair. My youngest granddaughter just turned 2, and still has her baby-fine hair. I put one of the sailor mini bows in her hair, and it stayed in place all day! Quite a testament to the steadfastness of these bows if you’ve ever met a rambunctious two-year-old!
The adult headband was a wonderful surprise! Given the hot, muggy days in Florida, it’s essential to keep my hair off my neck. I typically put it up somehow but being able to use the headband was a wonderful option! It was a fun red with tiny Minnie bows printed on it and had an elastic back to provide the perfect fit. One of the bows for my granddaughter was made of the same fabric, which allowed us to have matching accessories!
The final point I want to make about these bows is how affordable they are! If you shop at boutiques or craft fairs and see the price of quality, hand-made items, you sometimes have sticker shock. These bows are absolutely priced so you can order several and always have your choice of the perfect accessory to fit any occasion. To find quality, hand-made products at such a reasonable price point is truly magical!
