Review: Barbie and the Secret Door – Princess Alexa Doll

Emmy is such a girlie girl.  She loves dolls, hair accessories, dressing up and make up.
Her favourite thing to watch currently on TV is Barbie – this stems from when we went to see the Barbie movie at a premiere screening at the London Aquarium.  This of course is much to Daddy’s dismay as he isn’t keen but what would he know?  Emmy and I love watching it.
Recently Emmy was sent a new Barbie which is from the new movie ‘Barbie and the Secret Door’ – this is released on DVD on the 1st September however the dolls were released and launched last month.

Emmy received the lead doll – Princess Alexa (Barbie).  Alexa is a shy princess who discovers a whole new fairy-tale world in the movie.
“Straight from the movie, the Princess Alexa doll captures all the magic of the character and story. Wave her wand and she sings two songs from the movie and her dress flashes with lights.”

This doll retails at £24.99.

Alexa comes wearing her finale dress which fans will recognise from the movie.  The bottom of the dress features flowers and sparkles and the top has a one shoulder design which also has flowers on.

To make Princess Alexa sing you need to pull down on her arm with the wand in and she will sing 2 songs from the movie, while her body lights up. She also has a removable tiara on.

The songs aren’t very long – only 2 lines so I find Emmy has then playing constantly which I admit I have found very annoying but they are actually quite catchy.

A huge plus with this toy is that the batteries are already included!  Always a bonus for parents.

Emmy is very taken with this and can’t wait for the movie to come out on DVD.
