“ Brand: Simba Toys / Type: Doll „
Snow white is a much loved character within our house, my daughter is an avid reader of the book and she absolutely loves dressing up in her snow white costume. This Christmas she received this very lovely snow white doll and it is to date her most played with toy.
This snow white doll comes packaged in what you might describe as an overly decorated box, this actually makes the toy look a lot more interesting than it actually is, the box is beautifully decorated with a woodland theme in the background and the box being bright, bold and attractive colours. Admittedly this does make this doll look better than it is as once taken out of the box it just looks like any ordinary doll. Don't get me wrong, the doll is great; it just seems a little disappointing once it's out of the box.
This snow white doll is like your typical Barbie doll or one similar, it is small in size being approximately 20cm tall. It has all of the same features as these types of dolls, removable clothes; long, adaptable hair, movable limbs, and of course has a very detailed finish from the shape of the hands to the facial features and lipstick.
The doll is very beautifully presented and I think that it looks very much like snow white, it has lovely long dark hair with a pale complexion accompanied by a very beautiful face which has a little bit of make up on. The dress that snow white is wearing is identical to that from the original character; this I think is the most important part as this is what allows my daughter to recognise that it is snow white rather than one of her other similar dolls. As I said earlier the clothes are removable and once my daughter had removed the pretty snow white dress and dressed the doll in another outfit, the doll didn't really look like snow white.
As well as having the doll this also comes with a small ring and bracelet to be worn by a child, the sizing is very small and I don't think that the bracelet would fit a child over the age of 6. It has a nice comfortable fit on my daughter's wrist but she is only 4. The bracelet and ring are really nothing special, the plastic material is cheap and tacky but it's a bit of fun and my daughter enjoys them, she likes to wear them with her snow white dress and in doing so she says that she looks more like snow white which is really cute.
My daughter really enjoys this doll and as I have previously mentioned it is her favourite toy. Being as small as it is, it's the perfect size for my daughter to enjoy at every occasion. She likes to take it to bed with her, she will put it into her dolls pram (although it is too small for this) she also likes to sit and watch the television with her.
The doll is excellent quality as are the clothes. My 4 year old is not exactly careful or light handed so this doll has taken a fair beating. It has even had a fall down the stairs but it is still in one piece and it has no signs of braking just yet. The clothes are easy to use and my daughter is quite capable of removing them and putting them back on with ease, they are also fitted with Velcro, this makes it even easier for her. We (thankfully) have not had any spillages yet so I don't know how the outfit would turn out in the washing machine, saying that, I don't think it's recommended so perhaps a damp cloth would do.
I would highly recommend this doll; it is my daughter's absolute favourite as I am sure it would be for any young princess. Apart from the accessories I can find any faults with it at all and costing £15 it's a bargain too.
