A while back I had the chance to check out one of the cute Mini Lalaloopsy Dolls, and it didn’t go over all that well with my then three-year old Rainbow. However, I had a feeling an older kid would appreciate the doll, so I found her a home with my friend Kim’s daughter.
Now, here is Kim with a guest review on their experiences with the doll:
When I found out for my second child I was having a girl. I was thrilled! But I also vowed she was not going to be one of those frilly princess types. As you can see from the picture I lost that battle. My princess ballerina is never too far away from her next costume change and always has some sort of doll / stuffed animal in tow. Entire sections of our home have been transformed into her play castle areas for her and her entourage.
Ever since she was given her Mini Lalaloopsy™ Peanut Big Top™ she has carried this doll around. It has been to the beach and out to dinner. Over to Meme’s and friends. The very fact that her room is such a disaster and she always knows where this tiny doll is amazes me. Personally I love it too. I love the little personalities they come with and how they create this sense of magic (her is ” was made from bits of a brightly-coloured clown costume. She is a silly prankster who’s a little bit clumsy and loves to make her friends laugh. She has a pet elephant. Sewn on Date: April 1st (April Fool’s day)”) I love their simple ragdoll design and the way she maintains that ragdoll feel even though she is made from plastic. She moves just like a ragdoll it is actually quite cool.
Her younger brother even loves the doll and I am thinking of getting him the little boy pirate ragdoll and they will be able to play with their dolls together with hopefully little or no fighting over who gets to be which character. There are tons of accessories which I can’t wait to get my hands on and cute little playsets. The pirate doll is larger size which means Princess G is also going to gain a larger size doll which I am sure will be set up in her own little palace as soon as she comes home from the store.
Here’s the pirate boy Lalaloopsy doll Kim was talking about, Patch Treasurechest. Isn’t he adorable?
