Product Review: “Elena of Avalor” Rolls Out New Toys Ahead of Show’s Debut

This Friday, the new series Elena of Avalor will premiere on Disney Channel. Ahead of this event, Disney has released a number of new toys that tie into the show which I recently got the oppurtunity to try out. I’ve divided my review to tell you a bit about each item and let you know what I (and my daughter) thought of them:

Elena of Avalor Classic 12″ Doll

This is a beautiful doll that fits right in with Disney’s classic Princess Collection. She has wonderful details from her soft, ruffled dress with cute earrings, to the beautiful flower clip in her hair. This doll has poseable arms that make her ready for any adventure with your child!

Did I mention that this is a beautiful doll? My daughter was absolutely thrilled when I gave this Elena to her and she hasn’t set it down since. Like other dolls in this collection, I really like that her arms are poseable, giving her more mobility. This particular doll came with a rope that looks fun for display, but once she’s out of the box, it doesn’t serve much of a purpose. Overall, I’m really looking forward to this new TV series and I’m sure my daughter will watch it with Elena by her side.

Elena of Avalor Deluxe Singing Doll Set with 11″ Elena and 10″ Isabelle

Elena and her little sister Isabelle are ready to sing and dance with you! This deluxe set includes an Elena and Isabelle doll with three accessories: a book for Isabelle, a scepter for Elena, and a guitar. Both dolls include beautiful shoes, and Elena sports earrings, a bracelet, and tiara. With the twist of Elena’s hand, she will sing you original songs from the show including “The Magic Within You”, and “My Time”.

Both dolls have exquisite dresses, details, and hair with poseable arms and legs to hold their respective accessories. Children of any age will love how fancy these dolls feel and will play with them for hours! My own daughter loves that she can play with these dolls with her friends and they each have a doll from the show to play with. As a mom, I love that Elena sings when you twist her hand instead of pushing a button somehow placed on the doll. This is fun and it’s a feature that my daughter and her friends really like!

Elena of Avalor Skylar 14″ Plush Doll

Part jaguar, part eagle, Skylar is a great plush doll to add to your collection! He is firm enough that he won’t fall apart, but soft enough to make him a good plush animal to cuddle.

This is a great plush and my daughter loves his wings. They are firmer than the actual doll itself, but it’s not enough for her to have already found a place for him in her bed. He is very comparable to other Disney Store plush dolls and you won’t regret him as an addition to your house!

Elena of Avalor Scepter with Lights and Sounds

Use Elena’s magic scepter to cast spells with shimmering lights and songs from this new series. This gold scepter features jewels along the base and a large sparkly diamond on the very top. A disguised jewel beneath the large diamond acts as the button to activate the lights and sounds, featuring the song “My Time”. There are two different modes on this toy, the first being activated by the click of the button, and the second being motion activated.

My daughter has not let this scepter out of her sight. She feels just like a princess with her beautiful scepter that chimes and rings when she waves it around. If she’s not in my sight, she’s in a closet admiring how beautiful the lights in the large diamond are when lit up. To say that your child will love this toy is an understatement! It’s very durable, yet child-friendly, which is great for play time.

All of these items and more are now available at Disney Store and other retailers. And be sure to catch Elena of Avalor when it debuts Friday night on Disney Channel.
