My seven year old thought this doll was fabulous. She loved the music and swirling lights and took it everywhere she went for a while.
She liked it most at bedtime where she enjoyed the lights in her dark bedroom.
Since the dress is permanently attached, it would have been nice if there were more accessories that could be changed out...for example... hair bows, shoes, jewelry. The light and sound mechanics found underneath the skirt are somewhat bulky and add a small amount of weight to the doll, however, these factors did not seem to bother my child while she was playing with it. All in all, she's happy with the doll, therefore, I'm happy with the doll.
The author of this review recieved a free sample of the product.
Purchased this for my 8 y/o for Christmas who decided she wants to start "collecting" along with her everyday play Barbie dolls. This will be the first one of her "special" dolls. I couldn't believe how beautiful this doll was when I picked it up off the shelf! This one won't be removed from the box as long as I can help it! (We'll see!)
This doll is beautiful. The only thing that I didn't like was that her arms are hinged and the gloves are not detachable (they are her "forearm"). But other than that, great quality!! My daughter is going to love this birthday present!
