== Lalaloopsy Crumbs Sugar Cookie Mini Doll ==
Back in 2010 M.G.A Entertainment released a new creation the Lalaloopsy dolls , my daughter then aged 3 years was transfixed by the bright colourful and very girly adverts that were showing on Nickjr. And that's where the love of all things loopsy began.
Originally there were just 8 dolls released in series 1 , and Crumbs Sugar Cookie is one of those original 8. She is still one of the most popular Lalaloopsy dolls and have been released again in different mini doll sets and wearing different clothes. I know we have some series 9 dolls, and with usually 8 dolls is each series you can imagine how many dolls there are now, all unique in their own way . They promote the idea that old can become new with the doll's being created from old material .The ethos around the design is that it teaches children that everybody is unique in their own special way.
According to company press releases, the dolls were, "Designed to encourage a child's imagination and creativity" and "teach important life lessons such as diversity, individuality and the idea that everything deserves a second life."
Crumbs was one of the 1st Lalaloopsy mini dolls we bought , at the time i had to order them all off the internet but now 2 years on they are popping up everywhere . The R.R.P of the mini dolls is £5.99 but i usually get them from the toyshop.com for £4.50 .
== The Box==
Like all mini Lalaloopsy dolls , Crumbs comes in her own house shaped box. The house is basically the box , with the dolls packaged between 2 clear plastic boxes at the front . Once you cut around on the back of the box the front comes away and your house is ready , the door is perforated for easy opening. The houses do vary slightly in shape but are all roughly 10 cms across and 15 cms high. They are made from a smooth coated cardboard , and have a wider base so they do stand independently .
The boxes, if prevented from getting squashed are still going strong and a nice extra play item.
Crumbs's house is decorated to look like a cookie shop / cafe , with a menu on the wall and picture of her pet mouse and lots of sugary sweets on the outside .
== The Doll ==
Crumbs Sugar Cookie is a 3 inch mini doll . She comes wearing a pink dress , with yellow gingham check pinny , pink knee high baseball boots , and has bright pink hair. The mini dolls are solid dolls and you can not undress them , but the arms and legs are movable and they will stay in the sitting position .
Her personality says because of her sugary-sweetness and big heart, Crumbs is very well known and liked. Often her time is spent baking, and when it isn't, she's more than likely setting up a tea party and inviting friends over for some treats.
Crumbs Sugar Cookie has perfect manners at all times and while she is gentle and kind, she can also be stern when she has to be.
== Accessories ==
Crumbs comes with her very own pet mouse , he is tiny but exactly the same as the pet mouse that comes with the large dolls , well except his ear hasn't been nibbled ! .
Crumbs also comes with a heart shaped bowl complete with cookie mixture, A spoon , and a tray of heart shaped cookies .
These are tiny but well made with lots of detail and fit the whole theme of the doll.
== Thoughts ==
Crumbs was one of our 1st Lalaloopsy mini dolls , and is still one of my daughter's favourite dolls . She is bright and pretty and loves cookies what is not to love about her . Our Crumbs has been loved and played with for 2 years now , we still have all the tiny accessories which just proves how much it has been cherished .
These dolls are perfect for imaginative play , and the perfect size for small hands to hold and take with them, or pop in your bag.
My daughter loves to re-enact the Lalaloopsy dvd with her dolls , and will play along with them while she is watching clips on the Lalaloopsy website as well as making up a whole range of stories of her own .
My daughter also loves to learn about their personalities and mirrors that in her play using it to create stories that would be true to Lalaloospy life . She also remembers which pet and accessory go with each doll so good for memory skills too .
All in all 5 out of 5 .
Stitched from a baker's apron, Crumbs Sugar Cookie is always making tasty treats. This 7.5cm mini Lalaloopsy doll comes dressed in her pyjamas with a cosy sleeping bag and little pet mouse.
