She's cute as a b-b-b-utton! I finally got to see Coraline with both my hubby and son a few weeks ago (2/18). It definitely met my expectations; and I will be purchasing the DVD when it's out. Some parts reminded me of my favorite book "Alice in Wonderland".
One of the best parts was what my hubby noticed while watching it. I whispered, "fairy ring!" and he knew exactly what I meant. We've had a few in the yard and I've told him about them. His response confirms he's actually been paying attention to me.
Coraline Character Set
My sister gave me the Coraline Soundtrack CD . She's going to use a song or two for some dances she's choreographing for her students. I love brainstorming with her about these numbers. I don't have the kinesthetic intellect she does, so it always amazes me to see what she does with it. I may have to go see Coraline again with her before the DVD comes out. What a shame ;) LOL
I was admiring some characters from the movie for sale on Ebay last month, but I see Amazon has some adorable mass produced versions that are more affordable.
I was going to sign up for the "Coraline Mystery Box Swap", but I decided I couldn't add another thing to my plate. If you'd like to see photos of the original boxes that were sent out to promote the movie and/or see what the swappers come up with, click on the link in the first sentence of this paragraph. It'll take you to a fun little blog that is coordinating the swap.
