Great vs. Grimm Fairy Tale Revisions

This is an interesting article comparing various fractured and revised classical fairy tales. Some I agree with, and some I disagree with, so here are my picks for "Great" and "Grimm" from their list! GREAT: Frozen It's old news at this point, but the Disney adaptation of the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale Frozen is as inspiring as it is magical. The writing is beautiful, and the themes of family, faith, and love are truly inspirational. GRIMM: Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters I love the idea of a more modern version of this classic tale, but this movie really doesn't cut it. Guns seem unnecessary and awkward, and Hansel suffering diabetes is just strange. The attempted to make the story and setting more modern only seem to make it disappointing. GREAT: Ever After I don't think anyone will be surprised that this is one of my favorite movies. It maintains the romantic fantasy of the original tale with appropriate adjustments to modernize the story. It's beautiful and classic. GRIMM: Beastly What made Beauty and the Beast a classic tale was you were able to tell from his actions that the Beast is not truly beastly, merely lonely, confused, and largely misunderstood. With his melodramatic adaptation the audience is supposed to associate tattoos and scars with being a monster, and I just don't get it. GREAT: Tangled Tangled, much like Frozen, took a classic and beautiful fairy tale and did something incredible with it. The imagery is beautiful and the themes are complex but invaluable for young audiences (and thoroughly enjoyable for older ones too!). GRIMM: Jack The Giant Slayer I loved the idea of a princess out to seek her own fortune and adventure, but the story just devolved into the tired "damsel in distress" trope which was really disappointing. GREAT: Enchanted Positively perfect, modern and inspired. I love the movies ability to be self referential and just as magical and enchanting (I'm sorry, I had to!) as any of the Disney Renaissance classics. GRIMM: Mirror Mirror More or less everything Enchanted did right, Mirror Mirror got wrong. They tried for a modern and self referential twist, but it's over done and loses the magic of a fairy tale. Overall it feels overdone and lacking. GREAT: Princess And The Frog A wonderful and creative variation on a story every child has heard. Each of the characters is complex and very real, and the focus is less on defeating a villain and more on personal growth and determination. It's a wonderful inspiration. GRIMM: Red Riding Hood I've heard a lot of critique for this movie, and I agree with a lot of it. It's flat and disappointing, and trying to do to much with a classic tale in what feels like an unoriginal attempt to be shocking.

Popular and Stylish Kids Wear
The kids are charming, cute, and lovely. Because of their immense cuteness and softness, anyone can fall in love with them. They are among the loveliest creations of humans. They are curious, sensitive and so full of energy. Their shiny eyes and innocent faces easily melt the heart and attract us towards them. Every movement and expression of the kids fill our hearts with happiness and love. Kids are also the best way to get rid of work or office stress. First, the children see and discover the world while remaining in their parents' arms. However, as children grow, they learn to walk and explore their small world on their own. That is the time when their real development begins, and they need comfortable and healthy clothing in order to move and play safely. In this blog, we will be talking about clothing. In this blog, we will discuss briefly the various styles of children's clothing that, in addition to offering complete comfort and protection, enhance the beauty of children. 1. T-shirts: T-shirts are the cutest clothing item for children. It is available in a variety of pleasing colors and styles. They're gentle, light, and cozy. T-shirts are comfortable to wear and can be worn in any season since they do not cause rashes or damage to children's skin. T-shirts are the most traditional and fashionable children's clothing items that can be worn by both girls and boys. This makes it easier for parents to choose T-shirts for their children. The best and high quality T-shirts are easily available on sites like eBay at an affordable price. T-shirts for children are typically made of soft cotton fabric that protects their skin while also providing warmth and relaxation while playing or sleeping. 2. Trousers: Trousers are pants made of soft and durable material that provide children with safety and comfort. Trousers are a category of unisex clothing that is made of stretchable and comfortable material. Their stretchy nature allows children to play with greater ease and protection. Because of the durability of the trousers, they can be worn on any surface, including the floor or rough ground. It not only provides warmth, but it also protects the children's knees and legs from bruises and rough surfaces. Because a little slip here and there is common for children, therefore it is important that parents dress their children in covered clothing. Covered clothing protects children from rough and sharp surfaces, as well as insects and other potentially harmful items. 3. Skirts: Skirts are the most popular and common piece of clothing in a girl's wardrobe. They are the most beautiful and adorable children's clothing, giving your child a fairy-like appearance. Skirts are typically worn by baby girls and are not recommended for baby boys. It's fine if the parents wants their baby boy wear it as well; at their young ages, they can wear anything, as they look adorable in any outfit. Skirts are usually made of cotton or a combination of fabrics to make them durable and comfortable for children. Skirts can be worn with almost any form of clothing. They can be worn with either T-shirts or tops. They can also be worn at any gathering, party, school, playing, or traveling. Skirts are a common choice among parents due to their combination with a wide range of clothing. A pretty skirt, top, and hairband are the best options to make your child look like a cute little fairy. 4. Shorts: Shorts are the most popular choice for bottom wear for kids. Shorts are half-sized trousers that can be worn in any season but are generally worn during the summer. Shorts cover the body from the waist to the knees, making them easy to carry and comfortable for playing, running, or crawling. Shorts are preferred by children because they do not interrupt their free movements. They are non-restrictive, allowing the children to feel free and comfortable as they want. Shorts are also unisex, and both boys and girls can wear them. They are relaxing and ideal for summer. They could be the best choice for indoor play for children. They are also suitable for outdoor games, but since they do not cover the entire bottom portion, children can get scratches on their knees while playing. When the kids are at home or in the car when traveling, shorts are a perfect choice. For outdoor use, full-length trousers are the only healthy and safest choice.
