Review: Lalaloopsy Loopy Hair Peanut Big Top

Lara is completely and utterly Lalaloopsy-crazy, with an ever-growing collection of minis, vehicles, houses, playgrounds, and a few of the bigger ones too.  The latest addition to the range is the Loopy Hair quartet: Jewel Sparkles, Spot Splatter Splash, Mittens Fluff 'n' Stuff and Peanut Big Top.

For anyone not acquainted with the world of Lalaloopsies, these are a range of dolls based on traditional rag dolls, which magically come to life when the last stitch is sewn, taking on the personality of the fabrics used to make them.  They live in a fantastical world full of silly surprises and each character was 'sewn' on a special date in history to reflect their personality.

Accordingly, each one has its own personality, characteristics, clothing, pet and friendship group with whom they have fantastic adventures.  There are literally hundreds of different dollies in varying sizes, and they have become a real collectors thing.  As the packaging says, they are suitable from age 4 to 104!

The new Loopy Hair dolls have hair made from real yarn which can be combed, curled, twisted, braided, straightened and styled using the enclosed comb and hair clips.  They are wonderfully tactile and great fun for little girls - and big ones! - to cuddle and play with.  Each doll has its own wacky, unique hair, which can be styled and played with again and again.

Lara has been asking for one since she first saw this new addition to the range, and was beyond excited when she received Lalaloopsy Loopy Hair Peanut Big Top last week.  She loves playing with her hair and examining her cute outfit.  Apparently, Peanut Big Top was sewn on 1st April from a clown’s costume.  She is a silly prankster who's a little bit clumsy and loves to make her friends laugh.  Sounds like a lot of toddlers I know!

Lara and Peanut Big Top have been inseparable since she arrived, even for naps, with much cuddling, hair styling, and adventures being played out during waking times too.  She will definitely be a toy which lasts and lasts over the next few years too, and certainyl earns her pace in the toy box.  I - and Lara! - would say this is the perfect gift for any little girl this Christmas, highly recommended!

Lalaloopsy™ Loopy Hair large dolls have an RRP of £34.99, but Peanut Big Top is currently available from Asda Direct for £32.00
