Miss A’s favourite princess has always been Rapunzel (until Anna and Elsa arrived on the scene). She has always wanted hair as long as Rapunzel and was very happy when she was able to meet Rapunzel in Disney World.
If you love the movie Tangled, then you’ll love Hair Glow Rapunzel. Miss A was very excited to review hair glow Rapunzel when she was given the chance to.
A larger than average doll, Hair Glow Rapunzel is suitable for children aged 3+. She doesn’t have any small parts on her but her hair does need to be treated with care to ensure that Rapunzel’s hair will glow when she has been activated.
Hair Glow Rapunzel can be activated one of two ways, either by brushing her hair over the button just behind her crown, or by pressing the button on her chest. If you have the settings (found on her back) turned to Try Me, then you will get a snippet of the song “I see the light” when pressed. Turning the setting to On will play the full version which lasts around thirty seconds before stopping. Rapunzel’s hair will stop glowing as the song comes to an end.
Hair Glow Rapunzel is a good size for children of all ages. I gave Miss A the choice before accepting this review as I wasn’t sure whether she wanted more dolls now she is eight, however she has been delighted with Hair Glow Rapunzel and brushes her hair daily.
Dressed in a lifelike Rapunzel outfit and pretty shoes, Hair Glow Rapunzel also comes with a hair brush to use. I particularly liked the fact that Rapunzel’s hair is very soft. It feels like it won’t tangle up very easily which is a great plus as this is one of my pet hates when Miss A has dolls and messes with their hair until it becomes a tangled mess and there is nothing you can do with it.
The hair that glows is cleverly clipped with pink clips around hair which surrounds the tube that lights up. It’s a good idea to keep these clips in the hair to prevent the light tube from becoming damaged. Rapunzel’s crown is attached to her head with a plastic clip that can be removed, but I like to leave these in place in new toys as it helps to keep the doll complete.
Hair Glow Rapunzel retails for £39.99 and would be a great gift idea for any Rapunzel fan.
