Rapunzel Sing and Glow Doll
Advantages: Very pretty, young girls will love it!
Disadvantages: Doesn't stand up, two lines of song only, a bit pricey...
My daughter is a little bit obsessed with Tangled. And why not? It IS after all one of the best films to come out of Disney in a while. But, as usual, there is justifiable complaint that maybe, just maybe, that they have gone a tad (just a tad mind you) overboard with the merchandising....
This is just one of several supposedly different Rapunzel dolls you can get and is priced at £48 currently on Amazon. That seems a lot and I am sure we didn't pay that much when we bought it....still, we have had it a while now.
The first thing you notice, when you finally manage to remove this doll from the packaging, is that it doesn't stand that tall. The second thing you notice is that, because of the weight under the dress, it is not free-standing. And that weight comes from the attached equipment that enables Rapunzel to sing.
She sings? That's right but don't get too excited and let me tell you why. She sings two lines. Two lines. The same two lines, I might add, repeatedly every time you wave the wand over the doll. By about the twentieth time I heard 'And at last I see the light...' I was about ready to scream! Imagine hearing this constantly then for about three hours!!!
This doll is very pretty, colourful and a good likeness of the Rapunzel character. And when you wave the wand over her dress and the colours light up, it is a little bit like magic ~ especially for my young daughter who is still obsessed with seeing Rapunzel's dress glow, months after she first got this doll. I t is just the repetitive two lines of song that does your swede in and I personally am very disappointed that you don't get a little bit more for your money. A couple more lines or a bit of the chorus is all I'm asking for.
Overall, this is an average buy at best and not worth the hefty price-tag. My daughter loves it, as I imagine all little girls will, and does not pay attention to the fact that it repeats itself so I suppose it is a good buy. But fellow parents, you WILL despair of this and its limited, repeated two lines of song very quickly so think about it seriously before you bring this into your house!
Summary: An okay addition to Rapunzel merchandising that could've been better value with a few tweaks
