Cave Club Dolls Review (Mattel)

Cave Club Dolls
What It Is

Get ready for prehistoric play with Cave Club. Based on a new YouTube series about the adventures of an unruly group of prehistoric kids, the Cave Club dolls bring the wild hairstyles, neon-bright looks, and adorably ferocious pets to life. These dolls' fashions are anything but ancient.

Raised by tigers, Roaralai wears a furry shrug over a tiger-inspired striped dress. She wears a bone hairpiece in her purple hair. Her tiger purse and cat-ear headband complete the look. Roarala's pet sidekick is the saber-tooth tiger Ferrell.

Reflecting Fernessa's love of plants and natural life, her leafy-accented dress has what looks like an animal print floral pattern. Watch out for the Venus Flytrap headpiece that she wears in her pink and yellow hair. And her rocky purse has a surprise - push up the lever to watch it bloom. Accompanying Fernessa on her adventures is her Pterodactyl friend Ptilly.

Emberly is the group's inventor, and over her polka dot dress, she wears a utility belt to keep her tools at hand. The bone scarf tied in her crimped pink and yellow hair matches the bone worn around her neck. And her purple club turns into a torch. Emberly's pet friend is a Velociraptor named Flaire.

And Tella can see the future thanks to her clairvoyant telescope. Her celestial belt and the crystal hairpiece in her blue and light pink hair reflects her abilities. She's got her Dire Wolf pet Hunch to keep her company.

Each doll includes a cave comb, styled to look like a bone.

Is It Fun?

The bright colors of the clothing and hair coupled with the cute pets will be really appealing to kids, whether or not they've seen the YouTube series. Obviously, Cave Club fans will enjoy bringing the characters and adventures to life, but the fun fashions and accessories will inspire any kid's imaginative play and storytelling.

Who It’s For

The Cave Club dolls are for ages 4 and up. Kids who have seen the YouTube series will like bringing the characters to life. But the bright colors of the dolls and their cute pets will also appeal to any kid who likes playing with dolls.

What To Be Aware Of

Each Cave Club doll is sold separately. A Slate doll is also available but was not sent to TTPM for this review.

It is tricky to get the dolls to stand on their own, despite the dolls having flat feet.

Some of the dolls do not hold their accessories very well.
