G!veaway – Mattel’s Disney Sofia the First “Talking Sofia and Animal Friends!” Rev!ew

There is nothing like watching your little one dance around the room singing and dancing with her favorite Princess. Do you know Sofia the First? Well, she has a weekly TV show where she struggles learning about being a Princess! With the help of the three fairies in charge of the Royal Training Academy — Flora, Fauna and Merryweather of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty — and her fairy godfather Bailywick, Sofia learns that what makes a real princess is what’s on the inside. The cool thing about Sofia is that she has a special gift. You see, Sofia has the Magic Amulet of Avalor that allows her to talk to animals, but is coveted by the evil sorcerer Cedric who wants to steal it so he can use it to take over the kingdom!

We had the opportunity as a 2013 Mattel Disney Insider to review Mattel’s Disney Sofia the First “Talking Sofia and Animal Friends!” and boy did we love this set.

First of all the doll is a perfect replica of the Sofia on TV, wearing her signature princess gown and her special amulet from the King. Standing at 10-5 inches tall, she is just the right size to play, dance, and talk with my little ones. Oh and did I tell you that her Magic Amulet of Avalor actually works? There are two ways that it works, either you can press the amulet to see it glow bright purple and to hear a signature ‘Sofia’ phrase or you can hold up one of her three of her best animal friends: Clover the Rabbit, Robin the Robin and Mia the Bluebird and Sofia will actually have a short conversation with that animal!

My girls just LOVED this set. They spent so much time just pressing the amulet enjoying a conversation with Sofia.

They also really liked how Sofia interacted with her animal friends, but it was a bit tough for them because the animals face has to be aligned with the amulet and they have to be pretty close together… so it took the girls a bit of time to figure out how to work each animal. After a bit, they got a hang of it, though and now they are pros…

The best part of this was watching Little Miss interact with her new doll. She had a blast just talking to her and dancing with her. Here is a short video that starts with Sofia talking to Robin the Robin then goes into a little dance!

All in all, we just love this set, Little Miss is so excited to have a doll that she could interact with and Baby Miss is just as excited!

With over 30 character-specific phrases from Sofia and her animal friends, it’s endless interactive friendship fun! Available at ShopMattel.com  for $39.99.
