Review & Giveaway: Lalaloopsy Sew Magical Mermaid Doll

Lalaloopsy and mermaids? What a genius combination! MGA Entertainment’s Lalaloopsy Sew Magical Mermaid Doll – Coral Sea is adorable, whimsical and a cool doll for girls. The doll is fun for in or out of water play but my daughter, Teagan is a natural fish. Teagan loves anything to do with the water therefore it’s safe to say that our Coral Sea, has spent most of her time off land.

This doll has the classic Lalaoopsy attributes. Large head, button eyes, and rag doll body. But, each doll has their own unique story. “Sewn from a swimmers bathing suit, Coral Sea Shells™ loves to imagine she’s a mermaid.” Coral Sea has a feature that stands her out from the rest. Her hair changes color when it gets wet! Neat, right? Her hair is a rosy pink and changes to a darker purple when immersed in cooler water temps. Running warmer water over her hair will bring back the original color. I feel that the color change is fairly minimal and my daughter hasn’t really been overly impressed by this. Teagan is all about splashing and dunking Coral Sea in the bath. I’d have to say that Teagan enjoys Coral’s wardbrobe the most. Coral Seal comes with a pretty shiny mermaid outfit and a cute one piece pink swimsuit.

Like all Lalaloopsy she has a companion. Coral Sea’s is a blow fish pet which doubles as a fun squirt toy. We’ve taken Coral Sea to the beach once but otherwise she’s a favorite bath toy. The dolls are quite large (12″+) for a bath toy but that doesn’t seem to be bother Teagan. Just a few notes on how to care for Coral Sea. Make sure to squeeze the water out of the doll’s head to avoid mold/mildew buildup. There is a pinhole in the back of the dolls head for drainage. And don’t leave her out in the sun. That could cause damage to her hair color and doll.

The toy is manufactured for kids 4+. The Lalapoopsy dolls are durable, adorable and my 4.5 year old is fond of her mermaid. Like most girls my daughter thinks that mermaids are magical/fairy like creatures. Coral Sea will be a delightful addition to any doll collector’s collection!
