Enchanted Hair Rapunzel Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The Enchanted Hair Rapunzel doll offers a new way to play with Rapunzel's long hair. The doll comes with a light wand that changes the color of the doll's hair. Press and hold the button on the wand to keep the light on. (When the button is released, it will automatically shut off after a few seconds.) Hold the wand up to the doll's hair so that the light shines on it. After a few seconds, the doll's hair will become purple. The longer you hold the light to the hair, the darker the purple color will appear. The doll comes with three clip-on stencils that can be attached to the wand so that kids can create purple shapes (star, heart, and butterfly) in Rapunzel's hair. The wand also works on the doll's cheeks, causing a heart and star to appear. The included Pascal figure also changes color with the wand. After a few seconds, the color-change effects will fade, and kids can do it all over again.

Is It Fun?

In the Disney movie Tangled, Rapunzel's hair glowed. While there wasn't anything about it turning purple in the movie, fans of Tangled will like that the Enchanted Hair Rapunzel doll offers a new way to play with the character's signature long blonde hair, and color changing, particularly when it's this easy and involves no water or heat, is especially appealing to kids and parents. And it's not just the hair. Kids will have a lot of fun playing with all the color-change features and creating new adventures for Rapunzel, Pascal, and Rapunzel's hair.

Who It’s For

Enchanted Hair Rapunzel is for ages 3 and up.

The color change play feature appeals to kids, and brings the magic of Rapunzel to life while not literally recreating the storyline of the movie.

What To Be Aware Of

The wand comes with three AAA batteries. These are for in-store try-me purposes, and Mattel recommends replacing the batteries before you play for best results.

Only the doll's white-blonde hair can be color changed. Use a slow-motion movement along the doll's hair to allow the color change to activate.

Don't look directly into the wand's light. It's very bright.
