My Little Pony Equestria Girls Rarity Doll Review
The Rarity My Little Pony doll in the Equestria Girls dolls set is one of 8 well-made dolls to complement the ponies in this line. She’s sure to appeal to any fans of the original ponies. She’d be a great addition to a fun, colourful imaginative world of play and also a must-have purchase for a collector.
This doll has a good level of detail in the design. She immediately catches the eye with her long purple hair that includes a section that is longer than the rest (resembling a tail). She wears purple boots, a purple mini skirt, and a strapless form-fitting blue top. The makeup on the Rarity Doll is very colourful too. She has big wide eyes decorated with purple hues of eyeshadow and wears bright red lipstick. There are also little white ears on the top of her head to remind you of her pony origins.
As one of the Equestria Girls dolls Rarity makes a great collectible item as well. Her coloring and fashion is similar to the ponies in this product line with the detailed designs, accessories and long manes (long hair in the dolls, of course). She seems very well-made and durable, and most kids will think her beautiful.
A couple of things to note: first, Rarity is not joined at the elbows and knees so there are limits to how much you can pose her. However, her legs and arms can be turned at the hips and shoulders so she can sit, for example. So she can be used for imaginative play as well as looking great displayed on a shelf.
Second, at the time of writing the Equestria Girls dolls have to be imported from America and the price tag reflects this. They are available on Amazon UK but only from marketplace sellers as yet (October 2013). If this has changed by the time you read this, please let us know in the Comments section.
Overall, the Rarity My Little Pony doll is a great addition to anyone’s My Little Pony collection, especially for dedicated fans of the TV series or the movie. It’s a good buy for a child or collector. And if this is your first Equestria Girls doll, it probably won’t be your last – you or your child will want them all!
