My daughter is a mad Disney fan and just like most girls she loves the Disney princesses, so when we seen this doll in our local Disney Store we knew she would love it straight away.
There was a number of choices as this doll is part of the Disney Animators collection so it is one in 15. The other dolls you can get are Ariel, Aurora, Snow White, Cinderella, Mulan, Pocahonas, Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Tiana, Merida, Jasmine, Belle and Tinkerbell. Sometimes they are difficult to find as collectors are very keen to get the ones that are missing however we have found that at Christmas time they have loads in stock and are often on offer for £15 rather than £20.
The doll comes presented in a white box with light purple sketches of the character around the box. It also has a transparent window on the front so you can see the doll.
What I did notice about the packaging is that the doll is very secure in the box. There is the plastic covered ties that secure the arms and legs and there is also ties that go through her head and attached to the box. My daughter is 6 and she had trouble getting the doll out of the box.
Rapunzel stands at 16 inches tall and her hair is 17 inches. Her hair is very soft however it does have hairspray on it to keep it in place whilst in the box, once it has been played with a couple of times it looses its stiffness and it is really soft however does get tangled very quickly and I do find myself brushing her hair when my daughter goes to bed.
Rapunzel comes in a lavender coloured satin dress with a white lace collar and satin purple ribbon detail down the front. She is barefoot as well ( anyone who has watched tangled will know that she doesn't wear shoes). Her face has amazing detailing too. Her eyes are big and green with a "twinkle" in them and her lips look like she has pink lipstick on them. You can see her freckles on her nose too which look very cute.
She also comes with her little chameleon friend, Pascal who is attached to her arm and is made of satin. He is 3 inches long. You can take Pascal off her arm and my daughter likes wearing him on her finger to make him move around and "talk" to Rapunzel.
Rapunzel's arms and legs move at the top joints but like most dolls that is it when it comes to movement which makes dressing and undressing quite difficult for younger children. We bought the doll as a gift set which included an extra dress so we often find that we are helping change Rapunzel all the time.
I think this doll is really well made and great for children. They use their imagination and make the doll come to life.
My daughter received this at Christmas from my little brother. We had been looking at them for a few weeks in the Disney Store and couldn't make a decision which one to get. Eventually we settled on Rapunzel but you can also get Belle, Ariel, Mulan, Merida, Jasmine, Aurora, Cinderella, Tianna, Pocahontas and Snow White so there is plenty of choice.
The dolls retail at £20 however just before Christmas they were reduced to £15.
The recommended age for the doll is 3 and over my daughter is 2 and I can't see any reason why she can't play with it. There arw no small parts.
The dolls are designed to look like your favourite character as a toddler.
The doll came in a display box which was really nice, it has the character name at the bottom and a large window for you to see the doll inside. The box is also covered in animations from the film. For this reason these dolls may appeal to collectors too not just children.
When I opened the box it was a nightmare to get the doll out. She had been arranged for display and her hair was tied down in several places. We had no intention of keeing the box as this doll is to play with so I cut all the ties and threw the box away.
The dolls are 16 inches in height so a nice size for my daughter. The doll is beautifully made, she has long blonde hair which is longer than her body. The attention to detail is good. She has big green eyes and little freckles on her nose and cheeks. As she is a toddler she comes barefoot. She has a purple satin dress as in the film. This has puffed sleeves and a satin ribbon down the front. Finally she comes with a plush Pascal which is about 3 inches.
My daughter likes this doll, she tucks her into bed and night with her and by day she takes pride of place on the bed. The only problem we have had is with her hair, it really does get in a mess. When the doll came out of the box it was fixed in place with something I can only describe as hairspray. She also had several see through elastic bands keeping it neat. After these were removed the hair became quite knotted as a result I have had to brush it and plait it or tie it up several times. My daughter actually enjoys doing her hair so this gets done quite frequently. The hair is quite soft and it brushes well too.
This is a lovely doll its so cute and baby looking for the price as well I think it represents good value. I would recommend these dolls and I would certainly look to buying another one.
This was one of my daughter, Sofia's christmas presents. As soon as I saw these dolls in the disney store I knew she would love them! Her favourite film is tangled so I knew she would love the rapunzel one!
They are part of the Disney animators collection which shows all the princesses when they were young girls.
You can also get Sleeping beauty, Cinderella, Snow white, Belle, Ariel, Mulan, Princess Jasmine, Tiana,Pocahontas and Merida.
They are priced at £20 each, but near christmas they were on offer for £15 each. I had a voucher to get 20% off so I only ended up paying £12 which I think is a really good price, they look a lot more expensive than they are!
As they were such a good price I couldn't resist getting her belle too! She now watches beauty and the beast a lot so I'm glad I chose that one.
Sofia really adores this doll, its one of her favourites, she sits it on her lap while she watches tangled :)
The doll comes presented in a lovely box which features sketches by the disney animators.
It's a really beautiful well made doll, it's very good quality and very detailed.
Rapunzel is quite a big doll, she's approx 40cm tall. She has 43cm of blond hair, & huge green eyes, she's really cute and pretty. She has a purple dress with satin ribbon on it, and attached to her arm is a soft pascal toy.
Her hair had a coating on it a bit like hair spray, but it easily brushed out & now feels softer. As her hair is very long I decided to plait it to stop it from getting tangled! Tangled, get it!? hee hee!
I would recommend this doll to anyone. It would make a lovely present for any disney princess fan!
