Moana Singing And Light Up Snow Globe

www.disneystore.co.uk £65

Disney Animation’s latest movie Moana arrives in cinemas on December 2nd with a host of toys including singing Moana and Maui dolls (we quite like the idea of squeezing The Rock in the belly and hearing him sing), cuddly toys and mugs. For collectors, however, the must-have tie-in is the Moana snow globe, featuring Moana, Maui, Pua the pig and chicken Hei Hei. The water lights up and the globe plays the song ‘We Know The Way’.
