~*~ Lalaloopsy Littles Sew Cute Patient Feature Doll Bumps and Bruises ~*~
Lalaloopsy are a range of rag dolls each with their own personality . The range of dolls is extensive and there is now a range of little sister dolls to accompany some of the Lalaloopsy girls.
One such little sister doll is Stumbles Bumps 'n' Bruises , she is the little sister of Rosy Bumps 'n' Bruises and while all the other sister dolls are available on their own with their pet for R.R.P of £14.99. This doll is only available in this Sew Cute Patient Feature Set .
When this set was first released with the R.R.P of £29.99 , twice the cost of the average doll for just a few accessories extra I didn't look much further at it as I considered it a rip off .
However , it quickly became available for around the same price as the little sister dolls on the own , and I actually got a bargain of around £12.50 from Amazon.
~*~ What do you get ~*~
It wasn't until the toy actually arrived that I properly looked at what it contained . Through the window front of the box you can see what the box contains
The product description reads Stumbles Bumps 'n' Bruises and her pet are in need of some lala-love! Stethoscope makes silly sounds. When she drinks the milk from her bottle it magically disappears! You can also put her bear back together so it feels better. Accessories included: pet, bottle, medicine bottle, stethoscope and bandage. Requires 2 x AG13 batteries, included. For ages 4 years and over.
It was only reading this that i realized the accessories were a little more than just extras .
~*~ Stumbles Bumps 'n' Bruises ~*~
Stumbles is in my opinion one of the cutest little sisters and i'm sure my daughter would agree. With her bright turquoise hair , she has lovely little freckles and a small mark over her eye to look like she has had a cut and stitches.
She is dressed in onsie pj's and a dressing gown and is wearing just 1 tiny pink bunny slipper .
She is 8 inches tall and the first ever Littles feature doll, Stumbles Bumps 'n' Bruises was sewn from a nurses uniform on February 7th (Love you patients day). She's a perfect patient who always takes her medicine, loves to wear bandages, and is sure she's coming down with the sillies.
~*~ Pet Teddy ~*~
Stumbles pet teddy is a more deluxe version than the usual pets . Teddy is 4 inches tall and comes with removable arms, legs and ear. Made of plastic but with a knitted design molded into it to look like a real teddy .
Teddy looks lovely but the arms and legs do come out easily , a little too easily to be honest , they isn't a click as such to get them in they just go in , so with only being 2-3 cms they are small and easy to lose.
~*~ Stethoscope ~*~
The stethoscope was a nice surprise as I hadn't expected it to do anything . It is a decent size and fits my 6 year old as well as Stumbles . It has different sound effects when the button in pressed. These are silly sounds , clocks ticking, frogs , ringing , bubbling and buzzing very much like sounds clowns would make .
~*~ Other Accessories ~*~
Also included in the set are a milk cup , a double handed baby style cup which contains magic milk, when you turn it up to drink the milk magically disappears.
An empty bottle with lid for medicine. A bandage for teddy which fits over his ear, and a bandaged foot cast for Stumbles , and the reason why she is only wearing one slipper.
Also a small heart shaped flannel material cloth .
~*~ Thoughts ~*~
If you can get this set for around £15 or even less like I did then you are on to a winner . It's a lovely Lalaloopsy doll , her clothes are cute and well made . They are easily removable with velcro fastening.
All the extras are good quality and not cheap extras thrown in to look more .
The bandages and removable limbs help open up imaginative play , my daughter plays doctors, nurses and vets with these and while she adds other Lalaloopsy dolls too , you wouldn't need any more as there is enough in the set to warrant being called a play set.
The stethoscope is a stand alone toy , you don't need to be playing Lalaloopsy to use it. My daughter plays with this just listening to our heartbeats and laughing her head off when it sounds like a frog or a phone. She hasn't grown tired of it yet and still finds it funny.
~*~ Conclusion ~*~
For us this set is a 5 out of 5 but I didn't pay anywhere near the R.R.P because of that high price and the fact that Teddy's limbs and a little loose I feel a 4 is the way to go .
