Mary Poppins Mobile Apps

The magic of Mary Poppins is legendary – and from umbrella-aided flight to a bathtub-based dreamworld, it’s all present and correct in the amazing Mary Poppins Returns!

Look, Mary has to bend over backwards to entertain those Banks kids – and probably wishes there was an easier way.
