My six year old daughter is a great fan of Sofia the First and she really wanted this Magical Amulet. There are good points and bad about this toy. On the plus side it has a nice case for the cards which your child has to insert into the Amulet to receive words of wisdom about being a successful princess, which stops them getting lost. The Amulet itself looks nice, although it is large and heavy. So, although it is good for dressing up pretend play, it is not something your child could wear for a long time. As well as being heavy, the clasp is not easy to open or close and my daughter could not fasten it on her own. However, that is often the case. The problem really comes in using the toy, or inserting the cards themselves. My daughter is six and was able to operate the toy on her own, but the instructions say that if the cards are bent, or something else incorrectly inserted into the amulet, then it may not work. The cards are quite fiddly and my daughter often had to push them further in, before they engaged and you heard the voice. I do feel that the toy is most appropriate for 4+ at the youngest; for smaller children attempting to jam the cards in would easily bend them. Also, the play value is quite limited. I noticed that my daughter and her friend had resorted to the 'try me' function when playing with it, so it would 'talk' without using the cards. So, if your daughter is a big fan, then she may like it, but I found it had novelty value but did not engage her attention for long.

Was surprised how big the amulet was, and it looked enormous when my young granddaughter put it on. Lets hope it gives good value as some of the Sofia products bought this Christmas seem rather flimsy plastic for the high price paid for them - obviously being sold at extremely inflated prices because of demand for the products!

This was one of my daughters favourite Christmas presents, she loves it, however, as others on here have said, the clasp is not only child proof but adult proof, it took 2 full grown women to work out how to open it as we were afraid it would break - also the cards DO NOT activate the phrases, so thank god for the 'try me' button - I've also bent a few of the cards trying to push them in further to see if it works but it doesn't my daughter has just ended up with a few bent cards in her new gift!!!! Overall mixed feelings about this - Disney you could do better!!!!!

My 4 yr old is sofia mad purchased this as it was all she kept talking about. After taking it out of the packaging and taking it off demo mode, my little onevwas disappointed to find it did nothing until a paper card was inserted and then only said about 2 -3 words. Meaning to get it to work properly the child has to walk around with the card dangling from the bottom of the amulet. After 15 minutes play on Christmas Day it has not been touched since. She has replaced this with the cheap sofia amulet with earring set. Very disappointed considering its disney!

I rarely write reviews, but feel the need with this toy. My daughter wanted this for her 10th birthday as she loves little polly pocket type things, and she thought this seemed similar. She is so disappointed to find that she cannot open it, and it is broken - we changed the batteries but still it won't work. I spent £20 on this, and it is the biggest waste of money ever, and I have a very upset daughter on her birthday. We don't usually buy Disney stuff and never will again.

I bought this for my 5 year old, she had been saying she wanted it for ages. It looked nice when we received it but once out of the packet its very flimsy and broke quickly . You insert cards to make it talk but the cards offern took a lot of fiddling with to make it work and also they are pointless really as if you just have the necklace set to demo, you dont even need the cards. After a day it was put down and forgotten and hasnt been playedmwith again since. Not .worth £15.

Quick delivery. This is a pretty limited product , all you do is push a card into the item and it plays a very very short sentence, not very entertaining and quiet flimsy made, plastic, pretty disappointing , daughter has wore it round her neck a few times but we could have spent a lot less on a plastic necklace for her instead.

not really worth the price very delicate I bought it for my 4 year old grand-daughter, it took ages to actually figure out how to unfasten it, not the easiest thing. The cards you slot in are not very strong, (easily bendable by a 4 year old). I would say not worth anymore than £9.99
