 Cinderella’s Magic Pumpkin Play-doh Surprise Egg

Feepy and I (mom) met some friends to see the new Cinderella movie over spring break.  I thought it was absolutely beautiful.  To me, the sweet romance between Cinderella and Prince Charming was as magical as the big scene with the fairy godmother.  Feepy, who was not so interested in the dancing and happily-ever-after kiss, was mesmerized by the special effects when the pumpkin turns into the carriage.  When it came time for us to check out the Disney Princess Horse & Carriage, we knew we wanted to incorporate a pumpkin into our play scene for our YouTube toy review.

We crafted a big Play-doh surprise egg into a pumpkin to set up and open before taking a turn with the Disney toy set and doll.  Inside the surprise egg we discovered some cute trinkets: a Minnie Mouse Yazzle, a Littlest Pet Shop blind bag, and a Hello Kitty bubble necklace.

We had already set up Cinderella with her horse and carriage.  The toys looked absolutely stunning on our little video soundstage.  The horse and carriage are well made and roll easily.  It’s a little tricky to get Cinderella inside the carriage because of her crown.  Cinderella’s glass slippers slide on and off very easily, which is important for story reenactments.  The set would make a lovely addition to any Disney Princess collection!

Barbie Flippin’ Pup Pool!

As the mom to two boys, the most exciting part about starting a toy review channel on YouTube is the fact that we’re also reviewing (and playing with) girl toys!  In the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to play with friends’ little girls and my sweet niece, but there hasn’t been much demand for dolls, kitties, princesses, or pinks and purples in my home.  Having said that, my boys had almost as much fun as I did playing with the Barbie Flippin’ Pup Pool!

This super cute playset from Mattel is part of the Chelsea doll’s world collection.  It includes Chelsea, wearing a heart-patterned swimsuit, a yellow duck tube float, and she’s holding a pink dolphin toy that squirts water.  Accompanying Chelsea are her dog Taffy and two puppies.  The toys each add their own fun stunts to the playground, which includes the pup pool, a big slide, and a diving board.  Taffy performs a flip worthy of 10 points from the slide.  The other puppies can ride their dog-bone floaty down the slide or jump off the diving board.  Chealsea can slide down the slide herself, but she required us to hold her while jumping off the diving board, as the doll cannot stand up by herself, which is typical for Barbie dolls.  My boys loved playing with the two smaller puppies because they are squirt toys.

We also had a Kira doll, sold separately, join the pool party. Kira wears a purple and teal swimsuit and she has a purple whale tube float.   Her hair is styled in adorable thick pigtails.  The Chelsea doll’s world series also includes one other dolls for add-on.

The three friends are also sold as a set.

My boys and I played with this playset for hours.  We sent Batman down the slide.  Some SickBricks jumped off the diving board.  Other guest appearances included:  Shopkins, Hello Kitty, and My Little Pony.  You name it, if we had the figurine, we flipped it!

We finally cleaned up and set out all the toys to dry in time for dinner.  The boys kept asking to play more, but I had to explain that the Barbie Flippin’ Pup Pool is prize pack #1 for our latest giveaway.  LINK TO GIVEAWAY HERE  I promised them that we’d have more Barbie toys to play in the future!  Yay for girl toys!

 

Lego Disney Princess Jasmine’s Exotic Palace

Lego Disney Princess Jasmine’s Exotic Palace is a fabulous build!  We highly recommend this set for your Lego and princess enthusiast.

This 143-piece set includes Princess Jasmine, her pet tiger Rajah, the palace, and four other smaller accessory builds.  Bag one includes the Jasmine minifigure and all of the pieces to make Alladin’s magic carpet, a pedestal for Genie’s lamp, a marketplace stand with magic potions, a water feature that is reminiscent of the one that Queen Elsa freezes, and a shaded area for Rajah to eat.  There is also a snake charming toy.  Bag two includes all of the pieces to construct the opulent palace which is adorned with purple flowers, torches, a gilded domed roof, luxurious furniture, and pretty stickers.

Once built, the playset is a fun, interactive toy.  Jasmine can ride the carpet around her kingdom, roam around the palace, feed her pet, and take care of the grounds.  Add in other Lego minifigures or other Disney princesses for unlimited play scenarios.

The set is labeled for ages 5-12.   Surely this a a fun build for any Disney Princess fan, though!

Monsters, Inc. Sulley Egg Surprise! Huevos Sorpresa!

Hey!  This is Feepy at Toy Toons Reviews.  I just opened my first play-doh egg.  My mom made a Sulley from Monsters, Inc.  I watched her make it, too.  Well, after she hid the prizes inside.  She used a stuffed Sulley to get an idea how he looks.  I think he turned out pretty awesome. Later she made a Mike wazowski, and I made the little horns for him.

Then I got to open the Sulley for a surprise egg video.  Pulling apart the play-doh pieces was fun.  When I got down to the plastic egg, I could already tell there were Lego minifigures inside.  Booyah!  And they were actually Series 13 which is awesome because I don’t have any of those yet.  Plus there was a Sickbricks bag.  He was Hiro Thunderbutt.  That’s a new one for me.

I got 5 of the Series 13 Lego minifigures.  I looked them up for the official names: Galaxy trooper, alien trooper, evil wizard, classic king, and goblin.  I hope I can find all the rest: Snake charmer, lady cyclops, paleontologist, carpenter, hotdog man, Sheriff, samurai, disco diva, sensor, unicorn girl, Egyptian warrior.  I was stoked to get 5 out of 5 with no duplicates.
