Great Figurine Set for Fans of Sofia The First!
on January 26, 2013
My two daughters (ages 3 and 5) really love the new Sofia The First TV Series. It is a cute story with cute characters. I would say it is geared towards younger, Disney Junior age kids due to the simple story and ages of the main characters. It is nice to finally have a Princess series on the Disney Channel for my girls to look forward to watching every week.
This set is a great figurine set for the girls to play with. There aren't too many Sofia The First toys out there yet and this is a great one to start with. It comes with Sofia, Sofia's stepbrother Prince James and stepsister Princess Amber, the Fairies who teach at Royal Prep Academy (Sofia's new school), and some of Sofia's animal friends. It is a well made, quality set and the figurines seem pretty sturdy. My girls love playing with these and love using them for pretend play while acting out the shows.
The one problem is that sellers on Amazon are selling this set for more than $25. We purchased the same exact set at the Disney Store in the mall for $12.50, which is the normal price for all of the Disney figurine sets. If you have a Disney Store near you, it is a much better deal there. They are also sometimes available on the Disney Store Web Site for the $12.50 price. Make sure to shop around.
That being said, it is a great set and highly recommended however you acquire it. Five Stars!
So we've had these Sofia the First figurines for several months now and my kids have put them through the wringer. These poor toys have had to go sailing with Jake and Bucky on a regular basis to fight Captain Hook, they get crammed in purses, they get buried in piles of other toys and then get thrown all over the house. Through all that play (or abuse), they have held up just fine. The quality of these toys has been very good in our experience and everything is still in one piece. Still highly recommended for your Sofia the First fan!
