REVIEW: PANDORA Mary Poppins Bag & Umbrella Charms

“Winds in the east, there’s a mist coming in, like something is brewing, about to begin…”

Mary Poppins’ magical accessories will add a dash of eccentric English elegance to your outfit!

As a child, one of my favourite films was the Disney 1964 classic Mary Poppins. Although I hasten to add that I wasn’t born when it was originally released! Hence I was delighted to discovered the release of three Mary Poppins charms in the PANDORA Winter 2018 collection. The three monochrome charms are based on Mary Poppins’ trademark accessories and the iconic silhouette of Mary flying beneath her marvellous umbrella. My favourites of the three charms are the PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Umbrella Pendant (797507CZ) and the PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Bag Charm (797506). The PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Silhouette Charm (797510ENMX) is still on my wish list for the future.

When I first saw low resolution images of the PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Bag Charm (797506) it appeared to have a pavé finished with cubic zirconia stones. However when I inspected the high quality stock images I was delighted to discover a stunning, cubic zirconia free charm! I’m sure long time collector’s will agree with me that this charm is the epitome of PANDORA at it’s best. An intricate floral pattern covers Mary’s carpet bag, the design is lifted beautifully with oxidisation detail. Just like Mary’s actual bag, PANDORA Mary Poppins Bag Charm looks as if it’s filled with unexpected items!

More treats can be located beneath the PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Bag Charm. The marvellous Mary Poppins is anything but ordinary and so it is only appropriate that PANDORA have produced a splendid design engraved with Mary’s name. Either side of the ornate title are the standard PANDORA hallmarks ‘S925’ and ‘ALE’.

There is such expert craftsmanship on the Mary Poppins Bag Charm that it appears as if the bag’s handles can be lifted and the clasp opened. Both the ‘PANDORA’ and ‘©Disney’ hallmarks are stamped on two of the leather straps. My only wish is that PANDORA could have created this charm with a hinge and made it openable like the Free As A Bird Pendant (797575CZ). That would have been incredible!

Interestingly, despite being a large and solid charm, the PANDORA Mary Poppins Bag Charm has a smooth core. This has made me wonder if PANDORA will produce more unthreaded charms in the future.

The PANDORA Mary Poppins Umbrella Charm is a fantastic rendering of Mary’s brilliant brolly! Mary’s umbrella is as unconventional as she is and it’s not just a practical accessory in case of rain, but also her preferred method of travel. Wonderful details such as the talking parrot handle and Mary’s Practically Perfect Measuring Tape are all complete on this fabulous charm.

The front of the tape measure is engraved with Mary’s pretty nameplate in her signature handwriting. This hangs separately to the black enamel umbrella, and swings next to the handle. Like many other PANDORA pendants, the PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Umbrella Charm (797507CZ) features a slender silver bale set with clear cubic zirconia stones. Although I think it is quite pretty, I enjoy to see more creative uses for the space, such as the beautifully engraved ‘Tinker Bell’ on the Disney Tinker Bell’s Dress Pendant (792138EN93). One side of the bale is engraved with the typical ‘PANDORA’ and ‘S925 ALE’ hallmark, while ‘©Disney’ is stamped on the other side.

The Inspiration

Along with the quirky storyline, extraordinary bag and magical umbrella, I have always adored the songs from Disney’s Mary Poppins. Each time I hear one of the melodies, I’m filled with a lovely warm fuzzy feeling of nostalgia. Consequently, I chose three favourite songs from the film as a theme for each styling with the Mary Poppins Umbrella (797507CZ) and Bag (797506) charms.

Style 1: Feed The Birds

797507CZ PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Umbrella Pendant Charm 797506 PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Bag Charm Winter Collection Club Charm 2019 Valentines Day Spring sneak peek sale promotion offer discount 50% gwp gift with purchase becharming new collection gift idea blog blogger 797510ENMX PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Silhouette Charm

'Feed the birds, tuppence a bag, Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag' - Disney, Mary Poppins

'Mary Poppins was very vain and liked to look her best. Indeed, she was quite sure that she never looked anything else.' - P.L. Travers, Mary Poppins

First, the ‘Feed the Birds’ styling, is set on the PANDORA Rose Heart Clasp Bracelet (580719) to lend a vintage feel. Additionally, the beautiful copper shade of PANDORA Rose echoes the tuppence coin that it costs to feed the birds! And the PANDORA Rose Pink Intertwining Radiance (781968PCZ), Darling Daisy Meadow (780004EN12) Open Your Heart (780964)Shimmering Heart (781241CZ) and Two Hearts Spacers (786559CZR) are scattered like spent tuppence coins throughout the design.

As regular readers know, I am partial to symmetrical designs. Thus the Mary Poppins Umbrella Pendant swings at the centre and the pretty Forest Trinity (791214PE) and Free As A Bird (797575CZ) pendants fly either side. The peridot stone from the Forest Trinity pendant perfectly compliments the olive tones on the Wildflower Murano (791638CZ) charms. Other gorgeous green stones sparkle and shimmer from the retired Wise Owl (791211CZ) and Peacock (791227MCZ) charms. Also waiting for their turn to be fed are the Snow White’s Bird (797166CZ)Majestic Swan (791732CZ) and Spring Bird House (797045) charms. Amongst the birds, the white enamel flowers on the Darling Daisy Meadow Clips (791494EN12) perfectly suit the floral design from Mary Poppins’ Bag.

'She’s saying it! She’s saying it! cried Jane, holding tight to herself for fear she would break in two with delight. And she was saying it. The Bird Woman was there and she was saying it: Feed the Birds, Tuppence a Bag! Feed the Birds, Tuppence a Bag!' - P.L. Travers, Mary Poppins

Style 2: Spoonful of Sugar

A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, The medicine go down-wown, The medicine go down, Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, In a most delightful way! - Disney, Mary Poppins

'The honey bee that fetch the nectar, From the flowers to the comb, Never tire of ever buzzing to and fro, Because they take a little nip, From every flower that they sip, And hence, They find, Their task is not a grind.' - Disney, Mary Poppins

The second design ‘A Spoonful of Sugar’ is set on the retired PANDORA Oxidised Moments Bracelet (590702OX). Just as sugar helps the medicine go down, subtle drops of gold sweeten the dark oxidisation. Once again, as with the previous style, the Mary Poppins Umbrella Pendant hangs centre. At either side the PANDORA Shine Queen Bee (367075EN16) and 14k Gold Heart (750809D) pendants adorn the bracelet. Also providing sweet touches of gold are the two tone Dragonflies (790898)Tree of Life (790429) and He Loves Me (790541D) charms. Gold sprinkles the sugary nectar of the Lazy Daisy Clips (791014) and Bouquet Safety Chain (790864). Meanwhile, Mary Poppins the quintessential Englishwoman settles down with her carpet bag for a nice cup of tea from the Enchanted Tea Pot (797065CZ) and a freshly baked Cupcake (790417).

'Then Barbara had her share, and she gurgled and licked the spoon twice. Mary Poppins then poured out another dose and solemnly took it herself. Rum punch, she said, smacking her lips and corking the bottle.' - P.L. Travers, Mary Poppins

Style 3: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

'Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Even though the sound of it, Is something quite atrocious, If you say it loud enough, You'll always sound precocious, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!' - Disney, Mary Poppins

'So when the cat has got your tongue, There's no need for dismay, Just summon up this word, And then you've got a lot to say.' - Disney, Mary Poppins

797507CZ PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Umbrella Pendant Charm 797506 PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Bag Charm Winter Collection Club Charm 2019 Valentines Day Spring sneak peek sale promotion offer discount 50% gwp gift with purchase becharming new collection gift idea blog blogger 797510ENMX PANDORA Disney Mary Poppins Silhouette Charm

Especially compared to my two previous designs, my final styling might appear a little crazy! But what else would you expect from the title Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? Filled with the flavour of this magnificent word this colourful look is set on the Mickey Moments Bracelet (590731CZ). Mary takes centre stage with her bag at her side and umbrella swinging in the middle and Jiminy Cricket (797492EN41) plays the role of her cheeky friend Bert. Opposite, the Disney Parks Flying Dumbo (792124ENMX) and Carrousel (792125) charms illustrate the films fun merry-go-round scene. The Ferris Wheel (797199NLCMX) and Alice in a Teacup (792126ENMX) charms also reflect the enjoyable park scene. Finally, the Figaro Portrait (797488EN16) charm portrays the cat who has your tongue, when you need to summon up the word, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

'Mary Poppins sighed with pleasure, however, when she saw three of herself, each wearing a blue coat with silver buttons and a blue hat to match. She thought it was such a lovely sight that she wished there had been a dozen of her or even thirty. The more Mary Poppins the better.' - P.L. Travers, Mary Poppins

My verdict on the PANDORA Mary Poppins' Bag & Umbrella Charms? Practically perfect in every way!

Summary

The PANDORA Mary Poppins’ Bag and Umbrella Charms receive a well earned 10/10 from me! Both have are eye catching and have a splendid design. Some may argue that the Mary Poppins’ Bag is overpriced for a plain silver charm but it is a larger charm well worthy of the price. As shown in the three very different stylings the charms are also very versatile. Altogether I am  absolutely delighted with both pieces and fully recommend them.

I agree that he charms are beautiful. I am not a Mary Poppins fan but bought her bag anyway. I love the intricate detail on this charm. It is definitely Pandora at its best. Also nice to have no C Z’s for a change.

Hi Kathy,
The Mary Poppins’ Bag is really beautiful and I imagine it will tempt lots of fans into a purchasing a PANDORA Disney charm. It reminds me of another Disney charm which also has a gorgeous floral design – the PANDORA Disney Parks Epcot 2016 Flower & Garden Festival charm

Thanks for sharing your view and commenting. Have a wonderful weekend,

My Nanna was friends with Julie Andrews’s auntie and my mum met her when they were both around 11 or 12 years old, she had long plaits back then, not her signature short hair. Back when that film was made we hadn’t gone decimal yet and we didn’t actually have a tuppence coin so you would have had to pay with two pennies.

Hi Pat,
Wow that is incredible! What do you think about the new Mary Poppins film? Have you seen it yet?
Thanks for reading the review and sharing your story. Have a lovely evening,

I didn’t even know that they’d remade it until I read this review shock . Too many remakes so I doubt I’ll see it until it’s on telly wink

Hello Pat, I find it very interesting what you say about the ‘tupence a bag’ song – there was not a tupence piece. Maybe tupence was cockney for two pence? I love London, the Mary Poppins film makes me want to visit one day.

Pat
Pat

Not cockney, we all called it tuppence, 2d; threpence was 3 pence, 3d, and there was actually a trepenny bit, lol smile . When we went decimal, we made more of an emphasis on it being pence and if we were converting we say punse so that others would know what we were on about. My grandparents never did get the hang of it but I was still at school so not so bad for me but I still do catch myself thinking that’s a shilling for something that’s 5p shock

Hi Dora. This is an absolutely beautiful release, with the bag being the show-stopper for me. I do not own many disney charms as they are generally not my style, but this bag is so well executed, it has gone to the top of my Pandora wishlist. I also wanted to say that while your three bracelet designs are stunning, the first is an absolutely amazing, eclectic use of charms I would never think to combine. The result is gorgeous. Excellent review and photos as usual, very inspiring. Thank you!

Hi Tanya,
Thank you so much for your kind comment! The Mary Poppins’ Bag charm is truly exceptional. It also reminds me of Anne’s carpet bag in Anne of Green Gables and I think its design and old world feeling will appeal to lots of people. I’m so glad you enjoyed the review. The first and second design are my favourites and the Disney charms look quite grown up in them!
Thank you again for your sweet comment and enjoy your weekend,
Dora 💞

Thank you for this lovely review. The Pandora x Disney range is driving me crazy! I live the Walt Disney era pieces like Peter Pan and this fro Mary Poppins has really tickled my fancy. The bag is so lovely, there is something so beautiful about it.

Hi Alyssa,
I know how you feel! This year I have mostly bought PANDORA Disney charms and they are impossible to resist! There are some interesting pieces due out next year too, including a rather pretty PANDORA Rose charm with a filigree design of Cinderella’s carriage and a blue facet stone set inside. Watch out for the previews coming soon!
Thanks for commenting and have a lovely weekend,

Such a lovely review Dora, your pictures are so inspiring. I love what you have done with the “Tupence” charms that is very original – I would never have thought to do that.

I mostly keep my bracelets made up and not so adventurous as you. I am thinking about a new way of going about things for 2019. Maybe you could do a blog post to help people like me?

Best,
Patricia

Hi Patricia, I’m so happy that you enjoyed the review and found it inspirational. When I plan a bracelet I like to think about the theme, and in this case the songs from the 1964 Mary Poppins film were the theme for each design. I use a long charm bar to play around with different combinations of charms until I feel that the style is right and then thread the finished design on a bracelet. The more you play around with your collection the more you will know what colours and shapes work well together. Thanks for commenting and I… Read more »

I love the new film, it is so much like the Mary Poppins in the P. L. Travers books. The charms are fantastic too, I think I must get one of them maybe the bag…. or the umbrella 😂

Your designs are lovely Dora, thanks for the hard work.

Thanks for your comment Orla, yes I read that Emily Blunt took her inspiration from the original books rather than the Julie Andrews portrayal.

Wow! I have yet to see these charms in person. SInce I had not seen Mary Poppins in its entirety it wasn’t my go to at the store. These are stunning pictures. I’ve recently purchased the film and the measuring tape is such a fun spunky added detail! These are beautiful! I will add the bag and umbrella to my wishlist! I have been thoroughly enjoying seeing your designs on instagram! So much creativity! Truly and inspiration!

Thank you for your supportive comments Nichol! have a lot of fun brainstorming the designs for some of these reviews. Watching the films and picking out some of the key songs or quotes is often a starting point. Designing and photographing the bracelets comes next, and then writing the review. The photos provide content for Instagram which is a bonus and I have been designing a nine segment layout just for IG but then posting it at the top of the review, so it kind of goes full circle.

Enjoy your evening
