If you are looking to buy a gift for a young child who loves dolls then the Designafriend range could be exactly what you are looking for. Part of the Chad Valley range of products and available from Argos, the Designafriend range includes a variety of different dolls with outfits and accessories available separately.
We were sent Designafriend Brooke. She is 18cm tall and comes with silver sparkly shoes, black trousers, a smart red top, rose hair clip, a black handbag and a Designafriend charm bracelet that fits a small child.
There are a variety of different Designafriend characters who each have their own style, outfit and hair. Brooke has long blonde hair but you can also find characters with ginger curls, an afro, a bob or even really long hair. Each of the characters also has their own character and backstory.
“Hi, I’m Brooke. When I’m not in my fashion boutique you will find me in Paris, Milan, London or New York looking for new and exciting ideas to fill it – I’m constantly on the lookout for the latest trends. I’m organised and strive for perfection in everything I do, including my friendship with the Designafriend girls.”
Brooke has a soft body with hard plastic legs, arms and head. Her arms and legs are jointed as they join the body which means they can be moved easily. Her eyelids are fixed so her eyes are always wide open.
I love the little accessories that come with these dolls and the quality of the clothes that they are wearing. The across the body leather handbag looks great with her outfit and can be used to store the charm bracelet.
When you buy additional outfits you will be able to collect charms to add to your bracelet.
Compared to other similar dolls I think the Designafriend range is a great price, great quality and something that I would definitely recommend.
