Having just recently returned from the Disney parks on a family vacation and having seen the concept art for Disney’s upcoming movie Tangled I was pretty excited to receive these Tangled Dolls from Mattel. There are two dolls in this review, the Rapunzel Doll and the Flynn Rider Doll.
Rapunzel – This sweet doll has the charm and innocence of Rapunzel, a girl who has been locked away in a tower for years and who has 70 – 75 feet of magical hair. This doll comes with a dress, tiara, hair extension and a comb. Her hair is really long but can be combed. I know, I spent the morning combing many of Eva’s Disney Princess Dolls’ hair including Rapunzel. Rapunzel was welcomed into the fold with open arms, Eva’s already taken her dress off and let Jasmine try it on. Flynn Rider has stood in for Prince Charming and Prince Eric too. Eva is having fun with the doll is what I am saying.
What I like about this doll. – I like that Rapunzel’s shoes are on pretty securely and don’t just fall right off like other Princess shoes. Believe me, when I am cleaning up around the house I find so many doll accessories like shoes that I’m thinking of opening a second hand store for doll clothes and random doll shoes. I also like how the tiara is held onto Rapunzel’s head. I was smart his time and didn’t cut it off because once you do the tiara never goes back on right, never.
Flynn Rider – The dashing Flynn Rider is a thief who stumbles upon Rapunzel’s tower and figures that he’ll steal some treasure. The doll comes with a plastic “leather” stachel, belt, boots and then some treasures that Rapunzel can wear like a necklace and such. I told Eva that I he was a thief and was going to take the rest of the princesses jewels and she got upset. I had to quickly tell her that he learns that stealing is wrong, she was good with that. We played with the dolls for a good long while, making up stories and such. She insisted that he have a horse (because of the trailer) and so Flynn Rider found himself riding a small unicorn.
What I liked about this doll. – Flynn Rider is a boy and as such has painted on hair (no combing, YAY) and they even painted on a little chin beard for him. He is really pose-able, much more so that Rapunzel. I had thought he was a bit too loose but as I played with him more I saw that he could actually stand and bend his knees and arms. He can move around way more than Rapunzel and so he’s pretty fun to actually play with. The accessories for him are good too, his tunic and pants are good and the boots are nice, he can stand without help too.
I think these two dolls are good additions to any Disney Princess fans out there, they are well made, good playability and ready for kids to reenact the story of Rapunzel from Disney’s Tangled.
