This review is from: Barbie and the 3 Musketeers Corinne Doll (Toy)
As with my other Barbie toy review, this was opened on Christmas Day by my 8 year old daughter, who had been asking for it for ages. The anticipation was immense, which doesn't really help...
She attempted to extricate the doll from its wiring and elasticated bits of plastic on her own. This took a while. Then she handed it to me, wondering what to do with the tiara. Oh. 'It's meant to be attached to that pink stick coming out of her head,' I told her. 'Did you break it off by accident?' 'I think I might have,' she said a little sadly. This tiara is meant to slide up and down to be either a tiara or mask. You're not supposed to take it off. We pushed the stick into her head and decided to forget about the 'crown and mask' as it was clearly unmendable. Seconds later, my 6 year old had a go and broke the sword. All in the space of an hour in its life with us.
The cloak works! You take it off manually and place it around the doll's shoulders, then take it off and wind it round her waist.
Ah! The good old days... I remember getting Pippa dolls which broke within minutes on Christmas Day... Sigh...
