So this my first time at reviewing a toy and today my helper is Abby who is 2 years old.
After opening the package the first thing that hits you are vibrant colours and that bright orange hair .Shes a good size too,at 44cms tall so ideal for smaller hands to get a good grip of her.
Abby heads straight in for a cuddle with Carly before beginning to play.As you can see from the above picture,the activites are very visible.
She has a coat to button up,a belt to thread through,a zip on one boot and Velcro fastener on the other boot.she also has great crinkle sounds in her boots!
First activity Abby heads for is the zip on Carly’s right boot,and after a bit of help,she manages to get the zipper moving and is please with her work
The left boot is next and Abby makes light work of that Velcro fastener.
After a bit of a rest Abby goes back to Carly and when she realises all of her clothes do not come off, (this is a girl thing i think,dolls are not to be played with until they are naked!) she proceeds to try doing up Carly’s jacket.
Abby did find the doing up the button abit tricky as at first she looked for a hole for the button to go through,but after abit of help from me,she soon got the hang of the elastic loop that goes over and around the button.
Abby definitely liked Carly,she has even taken her to bed with her.and i could see from watching Abby play and the concentration on her face that she was enjoying it.
We give Carly the Cowgirl a rating of 9/10 for play,attention to colours and activities
