Last week, Sausage celebrated her 5th birthday and the awesome folks at Moxie Girlz decided that they’d like to send my special girl a very special present. She was super excited when a package for her arrived and was beside herself with excitement when she saw what was inside – her very own Moxie Girlz Magic Hair Colour doll! We were sent Avery, pictured below:
As you can see from the photo, Avery comes with everything she needs to do some seriously funky stuff with her hair. As well as blue and pink clip in extensions, she has red and blue hair crayons (which slot into a little miniature pair of what look like hair straighteners, adding to the novelty value for the littlies), a brush, a tube of hair glitter and an applicator. As well as being able to use the accessories on Avery, all of them can be used on real hair too, a fact that it took Sausage about half a nanosecond to work out!
The colours wash out really easily (from Avery and Sausage’s hair!) and the glitter doesn’t make things too sticky so it can be brushed through if you don’t have time to wash it out. If I had one minor criticism, it would be that the hair extensions are held in the packaging looped over themselves, which means once they come out they stay curled up. It’s not too much of an issue as I just put them inside a tea towel and ironed them flat on the coolest setting, but it’s still a bit of a pain that they can’t be used properly right out of the box.
I’m definitely more a fan of Moxie Girlz than I am of Barbie – the body shape is a lot less extreme and the dolls just seems a bit more dynamic than the others on the market. Sausage absolutely adores her new doll. She’s been walking around with various bits of pink and blue in her hair for the last week and has played with the set pretty much every day since it arrived.
The good news is, not only did the lovely people at Moxie HQ give Sausage a set to enjoy, they have two sets to give away to my readers! Simply fill in the Rafflecopter widget below to be in with a chance of winning.
