Toddler Tangled Fanatic Approved
on December 31, 2011
First of all, I'm not really sure what is going on with the one star reviews for this doll since the same 3 one star reviews appear for just about every Rapnunzel doll out there. Since these reviews are all identical (down to the typos), my guess is that is is a 3rd party vendor who is trying to sell the previous version. We purchased this doll at Disney World this past October after we had already bought the Tolly Tots Rapnuzel doll so we ended up giving our toddler 2 different Rapunzels for Christmas that cost about the same (our Tolly Tots version came with a dress up dress). The Animators Collection doll was hands down the better doll. Granted, she is a little tricky to pose and her hair does get a bit "Tangled" but a quick braid solves this problem really easily and the same issues are prevalent with the Tolly Tots version (along with cheaper costume and markedly lower quality hair). The hair on this doll is soft, silky and much fuller then the Tolly Tots doll. The dress quality is much higher, the features on the face are way cuter, and Rapunzel feels much more substantial. She's not a particularly huggable doll, but my 2 year old adores her none the less. If I had to bet which one of these dolls survives toddler Thunderdome (2 dolls enter one doll leaves), I'm placing my money on the Animators Collection. I'm not sure how on earth some of the previous reviewers said that the hand fell off the arm on their doll since the only joints on it are the tops of the arms and legs, but I'll be sure to update this if I find a wee little Rapnuzel arm hanging out of the toy box any time soon.
Update: 3 months in and this doll is hanging in like a champ, she gets rather used and abused (aka Toddler loved) and still looks brand new. Also, all limbs are accounted for.
