Christmas Gift Reviews: Dolls and Action Figures

It's that time of year again, when I start researching for Christmas gifts. I'm always curious to know what other parents are buying for their children. I read countless reviews on toys that I'm considering to buy because I want to know the pros and cons for each toy. The best way to really discover a toy is to ask other parents and children too. I would love to know what your children favorite toys are. So, each week, I will have a different category to review. Click here for the category list and dates. Please feel free to share your views about toys in each category too.

This week's theme is Dolls and Action Figures.

Izzie is not much into playing with baby dolls. However, she does enjoy dressing-up her Melissa and Doug Magnetic Dolls!

Pros: Another durable product from Melissa and Doug. This set comes with two dolls, which are the perfect size for a preschooler's hands. It's nice that there are stands included to place the dolls in. There is a large amount of clothing and accessories with bright colors and patterns. Izzie can spend an hour at a time dressing up her dolls!

Cons: There isn't a lid, which is problematic! It's hard keeping all the "stuff" together. The shoes and hats are extremely small, which could be a possible chocking hazard.

*This set can be found at A.C. Moore, where you can use a 50% coupon on it!* I buy most of our Melissa and Doug products here for this reason.

Disclaimer: I did not contact or receive any products from the above companies. These are my opinions, which may vary from your experience with these products.

Please link your child's favorite Dolls and Action Figures too!


  1. I am a huge Melissa and Doug fan yet I never thought to buy it AC Moore with the coupons! Thank you so much for that suggestion!! I am sure I can get them a LOT cheaper there than at the local learning store!

  2. I get all of mine at A.C. Moore too, I love the 40 or 50% off coupons!! They are great for the Thomas The Train wooden sets too :0)

  3. I just bought this doll set for my nieces. So glad to here Izzie likes it. I hope they do too.

  4. We gave the same set to Anna for her birthday. She plays with it once in a while, but not as much as I thought she would. She is just not into dolls - hence lack of dolls/figures review on my blog. I totally agree with your pros and cons on this set.
