Cinderella Royal Ball Augmented Reality app
Stretching your arms and stifling a yawn, you slowly wake to the tweets of your feathered friends who have gathered at your windowsill.
If only they knew what a wonderful dream you had been having, they wouldn’t have been so quick to get you stirring.
The rest of the house remains quiet as you prepare yourself for another day of the same old chores, delivering breakfast, singing to yourself as you go. “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes…”
Every day it’s the same.
Scrubbing the floors, washing the draperies, the mending, the sewing and the laundry.
Yes, the day starts out just like every other… or so you think. Today, though, a special surprise is waiting for you that will soon change everything all at once.
Why, it’s an official invitation to the Royal Ball! (A little birdie told us that everyone can get an invite, via the Royal Ball Augmented Reality App, which your parents can download right to their phones for you. It’s available for both Apple and Android phones.)
It says every little princess is invited, especially the ones who are kind to others and keep up with their chores. Certainly they deserve a celebration the most, of course!
OK, then. There are lots of preparations to be made for such a royal bash! And none of them include scrubbing floors.
They do include dress-up. And that’s perfect, because you and your brother are old pros at dressing up.
You get dressed in your prettiest princess dress. After you finish getting ready, your handy assistant tells you that you can unlock even more dress-up choices by visiting the Cinderella Royal Ball AR app trigger points at Wal-mart.
Your carriage awaits to take you to the dance party, but first you make a quick detour to the store to make sure that all your options are available.
It sounds like a princess-themed scavenger hunt, and one thing this princess knows how to do is to be a big helper to her mom — and how to make it fun as you go!
These were the images we needed to locate and scan throughout the store. If we found them all, we’d unlock the rest of the features on the AR app. More dress-up costumes, more accessories and more options for building our own carriage are always a good thing!
Here’s what we found when we made it there.
My First Princess Cinderella hanging with her BFF Snow White. Hi, Little Cinderella. Hi, Little Snow White! Have you seen any of these images around here? Not yet? OK, we’ll keep looking. Thanks!
Whoa… the ultimate Cinderella dress-up station. I know one little princess who would love to spend some time here, especially knowing that Cinderella wears her favorite color pink, too! But I think we’re getting closer to completing our mission. So we continue on.
And just like that, we turn the corner and we spot it.
“We found her, Mommy! Look! She’s even wearing the same dress as me!”
I admit I was a little disappointed to find out that there was no special Cinderella Retailtainment event that weekend at the store, as planned. But sometimes princesses’ moms have the right idea when they don’t disclose every last detail of their afternoon adventure plans to their little princesses ahead of time. My little princess was none the wiser and we were still able to have a fun adventure totally on our own. Ahem, with the help of the Royal Ball AR app, that is!
Imagine her surprise when I told her we were able to purchase our very own copy of Cinderella on Blu-ray and DVD! There was even a combo pack that included a collectible tin bank. We can’t wait for our next family movie night.
Scanning the DVD cover, our 3D magic carriage pops up and awaits us once again.
And just like that, we’re off to the Royal Ball to dance the night away!
Just another (adventurous) day at our house.
