Advantages: beautiful, well made
Disadvantages: hair never stays nice!
My daughter is absolutely crazy about the Disney Princesses and last year we started her collection of the princess dolls. The first one she chose was her favourite Princess which is Cinderella.
Cinderella comes packaged in a clear fronted box with a picture scene behind her of a field with a beautiful castle in the background. At the bottom of the cover of the box you will see a cerise pink label with the name of the princess in various languages along with a picture of her also. All in all it is very attractively packaged doll and will catch the attention of any Disney Princess lover. On either side of the doll you will find the accessories that come supplied.
When opening the box you will find that Cinderella is secured in place with plastic ties, which prove almost impossible for a child to remove! After a few minutes trying to remove the ties without damaging the hair (there seems to be an art to this) the doll is ready to be played with.
The Cinderella doll's appearance is probably not a great likeness to the character but her features and beautiful blue gown do make the doll look more her than she actually does. The blonde hair is tied up into a bun with a blue headband in place, which can come off when removing the doll from the box if not careful! It doesn't bother my daughter at all that the doll doesn't really resemble Cinderella, to her she is Cinderella and that is all that matters really! My daughter loves how the doll has make up on and regularly tries to copy it so she looks the same.
The doll is not disimilar to a Barbie doll in that it is made out of plastic, has moveable arms and legs, and clothes that can be removed. The hair can be taken out of the style it is in if you wish and can be brushed but we have found that it very rarely ever looks nice again and can go quite scruffy looking, even after brushing. The legs do bend so the doll can be sat down when playing or left straight which is a good feature as some of the dolls we have don't move at all.
The accessories that come supplied with the Cinderella doll are a brush, comb, hair slide and ring. All of these come in a silver and blue colour which co-ordinate well with the doll. The accessories are quite small and the ring would fit a little girl up to the age of abour six I would guess, my daughter is four and it fits her finger with ease. The comb and brush are a great size for the dolls head but my daughter insists on trying to comb my hair with them which is not only time consuming but extremely painful!! The hair clip did break very soon after use so it does appear that the accessories are a little flimsy but I think had it just been used in the dolls hair it would have been ok.
To say my daughter plays with this doll daily is by no means an exaggeration and though her hair does look a little bit ragged now it is still in good condition and has witheld some pretty rough play. The clothes are very easy to get on and off, they fasten with velcro so a young child won't have many problems in doing this. The only problem we found with the Cinderella doll is that the shoes do not stay on the feet and after removing the ties (which I told her not to do) my daughter lost one of them on the very first day! The doll is easy to clean, I have regularly had to wipe extra make up off her face but this can be done with a damp cloth or even a baby wipe.
I can't recommend the Cinderella doll enough, it is a good quality doll and a complete must for any Disney Princess fan. You can find the doll on Amazon for around £15.00 which I think is a reasonable price to pay and we have more than had our moneys worth already!
Thank you for reading my review.
