EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Shimmer and Shine Magic Flying Carpet from Fisher-Price is designed to look like the magic carpet seen on the Nick Jr. preschool series, allowing fans to soar into adventure with the twin genies, which are included. The glittery jewel-toned carpet features a realistic flying motion and over 40 phrases and sounds. Press the jewel at the front of the carpet to activate. As kids pretend to zoom the carpet around the room, it will magically flutter and move up and down like it's really flying. Tilting the carpet up and down activates different fun sounds and phrases in Shimmer and Shine's voices. Three AAA batteries are required but not included, and an on/off switch is located under the carpet. The carpet toy also has wheels and moves across the floor, appearing to flutter and float as it goes. The included posable Shimmer and Shine dolls measure six-inches tall and are dressed in their sparkly genie outfits. Their pants, shoes, and bracelets are removable, and their ponytails are soft for styling. Kids can pose the genies in seated or lying down positions, and then clip them securely onto the magic carpet. 

Is It Fun?

This cool toy is easy to operate with realistic magic carpet flying motion, and over 40 fun phrases and sounds in Shimmer and Shine's actual voices from the preschool series. Designed to look like the magic carpet seen on show, it allows fans to soar into adventure with the twin genies. The magic carpet also has wheels so it can be used on a floor or table, as well as kids holding it in the air. The dolls are included so kids can have a complete play experience. Kids can pose the genie dolls in seated or lying down positions, and clip them securely onto the magic carpet so they won't fall off during play. This is a super cute toy for Shimmer and Shine fans. It offers imaginative play for kids to recreate favorite scenes from the show or pretend to fly to Leah to grant their own wishes.
