Holiday Guide: Disney Princess Sing & Glow Rapunzel {Review}

sing and glow rapunzelRecently I received the Sing & Glow Rapunzel doll from the wonderful folks at Mattel.

Lucy is a HUGE Rapunzel fan. People often comment that Lucy’s hair looks quite a bit like Rapunzel’s, and I could totally sit and brush it all day. {But, wouldn’t you know it? I sing and sing and sing, and I’m not looking any younger.}

When the package from Mattel arrived, Lucy about went through the roof. Even in the box, Lucy had so much fun with this toy. You push the button on her chest and she magically lights up and starts singing. When she’s out of the box, well, that’s when the real magic happens. Rapunzel comes with a magic wand. When you wave the wand over the flower on her chest, she sings and lights up. It really is a very cool feature.

There are several things I love about the Sing & Glow Rapunzel:

  • It’s made by Mattel and backed by Disney – two awesome companies that this mom approves.
  • The lights and sounds are phenomenal and really make the doll something special. It’s really Rapunzel from the movie singing, too, so no “fake” voices.
  • Her clothing is high quality, hard to rip, and you can’t access the lights or batteries easily. {Good for when baby brother grabs the doll and doesn’t want to let go.}
  • It takes 3 AAA batteries but they last for the longest time. Lucy has played with this toy for countless hours, and the batteries aren’t showing any signs of needing replaced.

All in all, this is a super fantastic toy, and it gets 2 thumbs up from everyone in our house. While we’ve heard “At Last I See the Light” about a million times, it never gets old to watch Lucy spin around and sing along with all the drama she can muster. It’s really very sweet.

I would highly recommend this doll to any parent that has a Rapunzel fan in their household.
