Disney Princess Swirling Lights Cinderella
Advantages: Nice doll, lights up
When I was younger I used to play with a lot of Barbie dolls and loved playing with them so for my little girls 3rd birthday I asked my parents to buy her a Barbie doll. The selection was really terrible though, not sure if they have changed from years ago but these days they look a bit tarty and slutty and not something I want my little girl to play with so in the end my parents bought her a Disney Princess doll which I think was a bit more appropriate for someone her age. They decided upon a Cinderella doll and obviously did not look at it too hard when they bought it as they were unaware it lit up and so was I until I read the packaging and saw that it was a magical Cinderella doll.
The doll looks just like a Barbie doll in the she is plastic and looks like a person with a head, arms that move in their sockets and then a body and legs underneath. She even has the same sort of face as a Barbie doll, a very pretty looking face with pink painted lips and blond hair piled up on her head. However, Cinderella is way more exciting than that. When I first held her she felt quite heavy and I thought it was a plastic stand that she was standing on as her long ball gown covered something quite hard and solid. Turns out it is her battery pack which makes her light up and play a little tune. According to the information on this doll, "It is an unforgettable movie moment when magical dust swirls around Cinderella and transforms her tattered pink dress into a gorgeous, elegant blue gown perfect for the royal ball. Swirling Lights Cinderella comes dressed in that iconic blue gown and a matching necklace that, when pressed, re-creates that fantastic moment: just like in the movie, twinkling lights travel up and down Cinderella's dress as magical music plays. Now Cinderella is truly ready to meet her prince."
She is a very pretty looking Princess. Her dress is a gorgeous blue colour and all over it are little stars and swirls. Underneath there are cut out little stars too so when the lights go through the back of the dress you get this twinkling lights effect to the dress. It probably only lasts about 10 seconds but its very fun to watch. The music that accompanies it is very dramatic too and very befitting of a princess making her entrance at the ball. The bodice of the dress on Cinderella is solid and plastic and a sparkly blue colour. This also glows and lights up when you press Cinderella's blue jewel necklace. The jewel is easy to press and my one year old boy likes to do it too, just to hear the music probably.
My favourite part of Cinderella is her shoes. She has a gorgeous pair of glass slippers and I would love a pair just like it too. In fact, these are actually see through plastic high heeled shoes but they obviously are meant to resemble her glass slippers and look very effective. I was going to take these away as they are quite small and could probably be a choking hazard for my little boy but they fit onto her feet quite tightly and you can't see them because the dress is long and covers them so so far they have lasted on her feet well.
Cinderella does not stand up on her own but you can bend her at the waist so she will sit down and you can prop her up and she will stand like this. At the moment my little girl is 3 and all she really does with Cinderella is press her jewel to make her light up, she loves this aspect of her. At the moment as she is our only doll like this she doesn't really play with her too much but I think give it another year or two and she will be playing with dolls like this and if we get some other ones then I'm sure they will all be like one big family. In the meantime Cinderella is fun to watch and light up.
