I don’t know how this doll works, but it’s so cool. I’m as amazed by it as my daughter.
Rapunzel is about the typical Barbie size, and her long blond hair changes color with the help of a wand. You can change sections of the blond to purple, and there are stencil caps that work with the wand to make specific shapes on her hair.
In addition, you can reveal an image on Rapunzel’s cheek or make Pascal’s stripes show up. The toy reminds me of the makeup sets where makeup appears and disappears depending on the temperature of the water, but this one doesn’t require any water at all.
That’s a huge plus for me because when my daughter plays with those toys, water inevitably ends up all over the floor. It kind of goes with the territory with those types of toys.
You do need three AAA batteries for this toy and they don’t come with it. If you don’t have AAA batteries lying around at home, that could mean you have to spend a bit more on the toy than the price tag would make you believe at first.
We were lucky enough to find this doll on clearance at Target, so it negated the cost of the batteries by a few bucks.
Aside from having to purchase the batteries separately, I don’t have anything negative to say about the toy. She looks just like she did in the movie and her clothing is of the same quality as your average Barbie clothing.
Her hair, though long, isn’t especially prone to getting frustratingly tangled. Pascal’s a cute addition and I’m glad he wasn’t overlooked.
If you have a Tangled fan of your own, check this doll out.
