Barbie and the Diamond Castle Dolls is a great gift for a little lady, and is among the hottest toys for 3 to 4 year old girls for 2008/2009. (Manufacturer recommended age is actually 3 to 8 years.)
The dolls (Liana and Alexa) are based on characters from the movie, "Barbie and the Diamond Castle" and are simply beautiful in themselves. But there are a number of features for these dolls that make them quite special, and even more certain that almost any little girl would love them.
- The dresses do a "magical" transformation with a simple twist that turns their "regular" dresses into magical princess gowns. This is a delightful feature that little girls love.
- Individually each doll sweetly sings songs from the "Barbie and the Diamond Castle" movie
- There is a beautiful necklace that comes with the doll lights up when she sings and makes magical princess sounds
- If both dolls are purchased they can hold hands and sing a duet song from the movie.
Other characters and items from the movie are also available as toys, such as the Prince Ian Ken Doll, the magical Horse and carriage from the movie, the Diamond Castle Glimmer (TM) horse and the Barbie and the Diamond Castle Playset (a darling version of the castle from the movie with lights, sounds and music).
Safety note: The Barbie and the Diamond Castle dolls come with some small pieces, and definitely not recommended as a toy for a little girl younger than 3 years of age.
Cost Information: These lovely dolls from the "Little Girls Toys 3 to 4 Years" list retail at around $ 50.00, the dolls as well as the other toys available can be found at a discount price from specific merchants online.
