A modern twist on paper dolls.
on March 14, 2016
These dress up dolls were given to my 6 year old niece as a gift and they are fantastic. Very similar to paper dolls of the past but rather than being made out of paper that doesn't last long, the dolls and clothing are made out of wood. The set comes with 2 wooden dolls (one prince and one princess), 2 doll stands and 36 pieces of clothing which include 12 crowns (6 for each), 12 tops (6 for each) and 12 bottoms (6 pants for the prince and 6 skirts for the princess). Each matching outfit for the prince and princess matches the others and then you can mix and match to make your own outfits. The dolls and clothes are high quality and should last for years making this a great toy to pass down. The first time we played with them we spent a few hours creating different outfits and having a lot of pretend fun. Since the clothes are magnetic it is easy for children of any age to play along. My 2 year old nephew got in on the fun and played with the dress up dolls with his sister, which makes this not only a great toy for girls but for boys too! My niece was even showing her little brother how to make matching outfits for both the prince and the princess. And I can see this being a great toy to teach colors, patterns and matching, so not only is it fun but educational. Both kids had a blast with these wooden dolls and I think I had just as much fun as they did. I can see many more hours of imagination fun with these Prince and Princess Dress Up Magnetic Dolls.
The only downside to these dolls is the wooden box doesn't come with a cover making storage a little difficult, but every piece fits perfectly back into the box so it's not too much of a problem.
Overall this is yet another high quality Melissa & Doug toy and I highly recommend.
