Review: Lalaloopsy Glitter Hair-Dough Doll Tress Twist 'n' Braid

Our girls are massive fans of Lalaloopsy. They love everything about her and can often be found playing with their toys in the bedroom, in the living room, in the back garden... you get the picture! We were very excited to be sent the Lalaloppsy Glitter Hair-Dough doll - it looks amazing, and we were intrigued to find out what weird and wonderful things we could do with her!
This doll is designed for you to be able to make her hair, twist it, braid it, and even cut it - and start again. It includes everything you need; the doll, the hair dough, scissors and hair accessories. Our girls love playing with dolls and creating hairstyles for their dolls hair, so I knew that they would be all over this special doll.




As you can see from the photos, our girls adore this doll. They spent quite a long time playing with the hair and creating lots of different styles. I obviously had to make sure that they were sharing - they are at that age where they can bicker over things. Fortunately they are starting to learn that "sharing is caring" and they do have such a good time when they play nicely together. It was great to see them working as a team to make Lalaloopsy have funky hair.



This doll is recommended for children over the age of 8 - but I did supervise my children throughout and they were fine. Prices start from £29.99 and I am sure children would love to play with this doll - I know we had a lovely afternoon together.

Disclosure: We were sent this doll for the purpose of the review. All words and views are our own.

Review: Sylvanian Families Cat Family

I have mentioned before on this blog that Rosie and Alice are big fans of Sylvanian Families. We have quite a few sets of these now and she really does not get bored of them. They will sit for a long time, making each animal interact, chat and play. I really think imaginitive play, either with other kids or independently is a really great way to get the kids thinking about the world and the way we all interact and learn in the world around us. I love watching them play.



Rosie and Alice were delighted to receive a full family of cats from Sylvanian Families. The family of four cats are smartly dressed in floral dresses and striped tops and trousers, with little black beady eyes and large whiskers. We do love the attention to detail that goes in to every Sylvanian Family - there is even a space in the clothing of each cat at the back for their long tail to poke through! Their arms and legs are posable - as well as the tail!




We absolutely love this adorable family - it is a much loved part of our collection. The price of a cat family starts from around £12 and would make a lovely gift for a collector of Sylvanian Families. I know that Rosie and Alice absolutely adores their collection, as you can see from the photographs.

Disclosure: We were sent the Sylvanian cat family free of charge for the purpose of this review - all words and views are our own.
