Finding Dory Glow Friends Dory Review (Jakks Pacific)

Finding Dory Glow Friends Dory
What It Is

You'll definitely be able to find Dory with the Finding Dory Glow Friends Dory. That's because this toy Dory lights up and talks! Based on the Disney/Pixar movie Finding Dory, this Dory has a soft feel with fabric fins and embroidered eyes. But when you give Dory a tap, it lights up. Tap Dory again to make the light change colors. And if you tap Dory a third time, you'll hear character phrases, such as, “It is me, Dory”, “You found me! How did you find me?”, “I remembered something! I actually remembered something. Something important”, and “You know, I think I'm gonna remember you.” As Dory talks, the light continues to glow and change color. The packaging doesn't say this, but the light stays on for 30 minutes or until you tap Dory again to turn it off.

We're showing you the six-inch version of the toy in this video review, but there is also a four-inch version of the Glow Friends Dory, but that one doesn't have the character phrases. It is sold separately.

Is It Fun?
This is a really cute way to bring a favorite character from Finding Dory to life and light! Little fans will like how easy it is to activate the light-up feature, and the character phrases just enhance the imaginative play as kids pretend that they are swimming under the ocean with Dory. The lights obviously look better when viewed in a darkened room, and that's kind of the main use for the Glow Friends. Sure, this toy is fun to play with, but it really makes a cute nightlight in any Finding Dory fan's bedroom.
Who It’s For
The Finding Dory Glow Friends Dory is for ages 3 and up. This will be a cute toy for imaginative kids who are fans of Finding Dory. And it will also be a nice nightlight for a young child's bedroom, helping kids who are afraid of the dark not be so afraid as long as they've got Dory nearby.
What To Be Aware Of

The six-inch Glow Friends Dory comes with three AAA batteries for the in-store try-me features, so you'll probably want to replace them before you play for best results.

Additional Finding Dory Glow Friends characters include Nemo and Hank in both large and small sizes. Each is sold separately.
