Krusty the Clown Seal of Approval!
on May 20, 2012
Disney's Singin' in the Bath Ariel is a hilariously awful toy. To begin with, it doesn't actually sing. It's called "Singin' in the Bath Ariel," the instructions are filled with musical notes coming out of Ariel's mouth, but then, in fine print, it says it only, "giggles and speaks phrases," not breaks out into "Part of Your World." So, strike one. Next, when my daughter put it in the bathtub, the hair began to fall out almost immediately. So, it's a singing bath toy that neither sings or does well in the bath. Strike two. Finally, there is a comb/tiara that comes attached to the top of Ariel's mirror. It only actually managed to be attached once and now won't fit back on the mirror. Strike three.
Strike four is that my kid (who is almost four) thought the phrases weird and asked for me to take the batteries out only a few hours after she got it. But that's personal preference.
I can't hate this toy too much, though, because it is so profoundly awful that we all got a big laugh out of it. But no one should ever, ever buy it thinking it can actually do the things it says it can on the box.
