“ Brand: Nintendo „
My daughter absolutely loves anything to do with Mario she especially loves playing Mario games on the Wii or her DS. Her favourite character to play in any of these games is Princess Peach. For her birthday last year she asked for anything Princess Peach related, I actually found it rather difficult to find anything on this Nintendo character, but in the end found some bits on Amazon. There were actually a few Princess Peach plush dolls but in the end I decided on the Officially Nintendo licenced Princess Peach plush, which I am reviewing today.
Princess Peach arrived in a standard Amazon box, inside she was packaged simply in a plastic bag with a small cardboard tag attached to her hair which gave general information, including the fact that this was a official Nintendo licenced product. The tag was easily removed and left no marks or holes.
Princess Peach is wearing her standard light pink dress, which has a dark pink trim on the neckline, waist and hem, along with the gold and blue ring displayed on the front of the dress. Peach is also wearing red "high heel" shoes and long white gloves. A pair of blue earrings and "gold" felt crown complete her outfit. Peaches hair is bright yellow and in a bouffant style.
Peaches head is slightly bigger (and therefore slightly heavier) than her body which means her head always tilts at an angle, but this does not seem to have bothered my daughter.
This is a plush doll, it is well stuffed and very soft. There are no sharp or hard bits. My daughter takes this doll to bed every night and loves to cuddle it.
I bought this doll nearly twelve months ago now and have been really happy with how well it has lasted, especially considering it has been well played with. I have put it through the wash a few times and have been pleased to discover it has not fall apart, although it has gone ever so slightly bobbly in places. The stitching is of an excellent quality and we have not experienced any holes or rips. However, have had a few problems with the felt crown on top of Peaches head which keeps coming loose and needing to be sewn back on.
My daughter absolutely loves this doll and we have found it to be of a excellent quality, it is a really cute doll and of a true likeness to the character. She is lovely and soft and perfect for cuddling.
I have no problems recommending this doll to Princess Peach fans.
Other Official Nintendo Mario characters are also available.
The Princess Peach doll is available in varying sizes and prices. I advise checking that you are purchasing the officially licenced products as there are quite a few unofficial ones about and I doubt these would be of a decent quality.
