My 3 year old daughter and I stumbled upon Ever After High on Netflix one night and we both fell in love with the series. I really loved the messages behind each episode, the self sufficiency of the characters and the amazing outfits, not to mention the quirky personalities of some of them! I found myself attracted to Cerise as I'm a fan of werewolf stories, and as we have a small collection of other dolls I felt she'd be a good addition.

Even though the Amazon system marked her up as an almost two week delivery time, she arrived within 3 days. Cerise came in a jiffy bag, and her box was just gorgeous, being curved on one side with a beautiful background decor inside. There's even a little keyhole at the back, which is where the stand is kept (very easy to assemble, you just pop it together). The dolls all come with their own brushes too, which are attached next to the doll.

As we found out with the first two, these dolls are notoriously well sealed and you have to open the entire box and background to get to all the tags and plastic holders. You will need scissors as some of the tags are tiny and not really removable with fingers, so not really a job for the littles.

Once you've successfully run the gauntlet of packaging, you can then peel out your doll. They have the most amazing hair to brush, it's so nice and so therapeutic, my daughter and I often sit together and brush them every day! Cerise's hair is split, she has the majority in a ponytail that hands out of a hole in her hood, and then a strand that hangs out the front of the hood by her cheek. The hood can be dropped off her head and the hair put together in a single ponytail if you prefer.

Cerise, being the daughter of Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf (who is a werewolf and a teacher at her school) comes with a picnic basket that she carries on her hand. It has a moveable handle but the rest is moulded and static. She has a pink ring and black bracelet on one hand which can also be removed and as I found out, are very easy to lose so beware! She wears a plaid style body piece with a 3 band leather belt with a silver chain hanging from it (obviously it's all plastic, however the plaid body is a soft cotton). At the bottom of the body piece is a black tutu and on her legs are a pair of grey patterned leggings. Over her shoulders sits her cloak, decorated with a beautiful red and pink coloured background with black and pale turquoise tree branches and leaves. it's held on with a plastic silver clasp that's sewn on so if you want to take it off you'll need to negotiate it over her head. The base of the cape is elasticated to keep shape. Her boots are probably the least remarkable of all the dolls we have, being just a plain, basic brown plastic which don't close all the way at the back. All clothing, accessories and jewellery can be removed, the clothing has a Velcro strap at the back and the belt is held on with two tiny pop style clips. The head, arms, knees and wrists are all moveable and have a great range, they make for some really nice poses.

The stand snaps together easily and has an adjustable clip that goes around Cerise's waist. The bottom of the stand is shaped as a padlock and has Ever After High written on it. There's a gap at the side which supposedly the key shaped brush is meant to sit in but I find they dont fit, so we just lay the brushes next to them.

As well as the doll and accessories you also always recieve a mini story that doubles as a bookmark. Out of the 4 dolls, only one we received was in English - one of the others was in French, the other in German, this one was in Spanish. It was disappointing on those as it means reading he story won't be easy and relies on my ability to translate all languages! These little stories do also make a useful bookmark, which is their intention too.

I find these dolls superbly well made, the body and clothing feels of good quality. They're very thin body shapes, but so are the characters in the show. The clothing designs are so cool, I find them so quirky and interesting.

We are both really satisfied with these dolls, and we're planning to buy more soon. They're so much fun to play with, a pleasure to brush the hair and switch out the clothing and they look amazing sitting up on their shelf.

There are two variants of the Cerise doll. The one that was sent to me is the first one, whereas the one advertised is the second one.
It is a gorgeous doll, however. But if one would like a Cerise doll specifically like advertised and got an earlier version, they would be really disappointed, I would imagine.
The two dolls differ from one another, but both models are lovely dolls.

Excellent product, it is very good and deserves the five star rating. This product is exactly what I expecting and I would recommend this to anyone who is considering buying it.

Love the doll, I like all the clothes too! She looks a little gypsy-ish to me, and she also has longer legs than other dolls.
Unfortunately the hood of the cape had greasy glue stains that won't wash out (believe me I tried everything, though not the ironing-tissue-paper trick yet!) Apparently this is a problem for some of the dolls (I went onto some forums); they have glue in the head which leaks out (gross!)
For greasy doll's hair I've used mineral oil before, but I don't want to use that on fabric...

Cerise Hood is the daughter of Little Red Riding Hood, though her father is more of a mystery – he is in fact the Big Bad Wolf.

Big Bad, sorry Mr Wolf, is one of the teachers at Ever After High School and for her there isn’t much worse than everyone knowing that one of the teachers is your parent – especially when he’s supposed to be the Big Bad Wolf.

Ever After is a boarding school which is attended by the children of famous and infamous storybook and fairy tale.

Cerise is a speedy and sporty young lady who keeps her hood up to cover her tell-tale ears – except that this young rebel needn’t worry as in her dolly form her ears are virtually normal.

She is wonderfully dressed in the short red check dress, denim jeans and silk cape she looks beautiful and has her picnic basket with her.

The multi-poseable Cerise is a great addition to the Ever After team.

I thought my 10 year old daughter was getting a bit old for dolls but she is extremely happy with this addition to her Everafter High / Monster High collection (there still seems to be a place for imagination games slong side the electronic ones!).

The product is fine - it's just the Italian version! Packaging was in a padded envelope so it wan't very well protected - so in conclusion not what I thought I was getting exactly! Hence 2 stars and I'm still short a present!
