What It Is
The Disney Sofia the First Deluxe Styling Head from Just Play is a 15-piece styling head with interactive features to engage fans in lots of hair play. Unlike a static styling head, kids can press the amulet on Sofia's necklace or hold the included hairbrush on or close to it to make Sofia talk. Sofia will tell kids the different qualities that make a good friend as well as ask for help styling her own hair. The set also comes with multiple hair clips and accessories to style with, including pinecone curlers. The hair has a damp feel to it, which seems a little weird at first but in terms of styling seems to do a better job in holding a curl after using the play curlers. In addition, the styling head features a holder along with her two animal pals to help keep her accessories organized.
Is It Fun?
Little Sofia fans will love using the brush to make Sofia talk. This element we think especially adds to the engagement and fun of classic hair play. We also think the whimsical details of this set is something fans of the show will appreciate, such as the snap on pinecone curlers that harkens back to a specific episode from the series.
Who It’s For
The Disney Sofia the First Deluxe Styling Head is for ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
It's unlikely kids will be able to recreate the beautifully styled updo's featured on the packaging, but we still think for young Sofia fans this is an engaging toy that offers a lot of repeat hair play.
Three AAA batteries are required and included.
