I was lucky to be able to review two new dolls from Mattel this holiday season, The Disney/Pixar Brave Gem Styling Merida Doll and the Little Mommy Doctor Mommy Doll.
The Disney/Pixar Brave Gem Styling Merida Doll retails for $19.99 and is perfect for fans of the movie Brave! She comes in her riding gown and with her bow and arrow. We love Merida because of her fiery red hair and this doll captures that beautifully! This doll is for ages 3 and up, due to choking hazards, and includes gems that your child can use to decorate Merida’s dress, cape, or hair. Her cape is gold and sparkly with accents to match the blue color in her riding gown. She is available for purchase on the Mattel website or in major retail stores.
The Little Mommy Doctor Mommy Doll is perfect for your little nurturer. My daughter loves to play doctor and I also feel like letting her play with the instruments, such as the stethoscope or the thermometer, help her understand what is going on when she visits the actual doctor. This doll includes the Doll, and Doctors Kit complete with stethoscope, thermometer, tongue depressor, reflex hammer, name tag, bandage, and syringe.
This doll does require AA batteries, which are not included, and is for ages 3 and up.
Your child is able to check the doll’s temperature, bandage her, check her reflexes, and her heart with the tools and the doll will actually respond and interact with your child. My daughter loves this doll and the fact that she is interactive and actually makes sounds and says phrases back to her.
Be sure to check out the entire line of Little Mommy dolls on Mattel’s website. Although this doll doesn’t appear to be currently available through Mattel’s website, you can find her at Toys R Us for $59.99.
