Disney Sofia the First Talking Sofia and Animal Friends Review
For children who like the Sofia the First Disney Junior series about an ordinary little girl who becomes a princess, this could be the ideal toy because it brings the TV show to “life”. Even children who don’t know the show will probably enjoy the pretty Sofia doll and the way that she talks to her animal friends.
This Sofia the First talking Sofia doll is well made and looks very like the cartoon princess on TV. She’s a convincing replica that many little girls will think beautiful. She wears her purple amulet, a long purple princess dress with multi-layered skirt and underskirt, tiara and shoes.
To make Sofia interact with her animals, you need to bring the animal close to the magical amulet that she wears. She will then recognise her animal friend and the animal will even make a special response. The animals are small and you’ll need to make sure that kids are careful with them and don’t lose them. However, Sofia can also talk without having any animal nearby, if you press her amulet.
When you get your Sofia doll, be sure to switch her out of the Try Me mode so that she can say all of the different sentences. You’ll only get a few sample sentences in Try Me mode and this has disappointed some buyers who don’t realise that all you have to do is turn her on!
All in all this is a popular doll with plenty of scope for imaginative play. Children will enjoy playing with the animals and making Sofia talk as well as acting out scenes from her kingdom of Enchancia. A good set and probably the best Sofia the First toy on the market now.
