Lizzie Hearts ~ Spring Unsprung ~ Playset and Doll Review

Phew! It has been awhile! How has everyone been?! I don’t even think I know how to do a review anymore! But it is finally that time of year! Where new dolls are coming out just before Christmas!

The first doll to hit is the Lizzie Hearts Spring Unsprung doll.

“Lizzie Hearts is bringing her Wonderland style to Spring Fairest. Inside her dorm room, Lizzie gets fairest for the party in an outfit she designed herself! Then it’s off to the spellebration when the Well of Wonder unhexpectedly appears. What a Wonderlandiful surprise for Lizzie and her friends!”

Lizzie’s box comes with the book exposed and a great deal of empty space.

This panel does not have anything behind it. It is just empty space. Why put this book-playset in such a large box?

Each Lizzie playset I’ve seen comes with Lizzie tilting her head. That is going to cause some people a difficult time to spot straight eyes or disproportionate eyes. Be careful. Thanks to the great people at Toot’s Toys, I got a great Lizzie.

Lizzie’s book is significantly smaller than the Thronecoming playset book of Briar Beauty. It is smaller and much thinner.

The back of the book features a beautiful scene of the Well of Wonder (or I’m assuming that’s what that well is)

The book features writing on the side where it opens.

Lizzie comes attached to the book playset. She does have those annoying tabs in the back of her head, but she isn’t attached to the book, she’s attached to a white cardboard backing. WHY?! Does she absolutely have to have tabs in the back of her head?! This cardboard isn’t attached to the book. Why was she attached to it?!

The front cover of the book features scenes of Lizzie’s dorm room.

The playset also features this container. The container can hold your jewelry or can be flipped upside to create a chair for Lizzie.

The playset comes with this little baggie of goodies. Please be careful, though, I’ve heard that some sets were packaged without these accessories. Check yours carefully! You should get a purse, a little jewelry box (for the doll), a ring for you, and a set of cards that Lizzie can hold.

Okay, so that’s the playset. Are you ready to see the doll?!

Lizzie comes wearing a gold headband with red roses and a crown of three hearts. The middle heart features the letter Q. I swear that I couldn’t read that Q until I took this photo, though. It is another of the EAH accessories that is detailed, but hard to see unless you photograph it closely.

Lizzie has her signature heart on her eye. She is wearing a deep red lipstick.

The heart seems to be the same color as the signature Lizzie, but her lips are definitely a deeper red.

This Lizzie doll features pink streaks in the front of her hair. This doll does not wear earrings.

Lizzie likes her collars. This one features roses and red chains that go over her shoulders.

Lizzie’s dress is strapless in style (but does feature two clear straps for functionality). The top of the dress has red and yellow flowers/roses on a background of black. She has a red overskirt.

Under that red overskirt is a black and white checkered pattern with the same red and yellow flowers on top of it.

Lizzie wears one bracelet that is hard to tell. I think it might be a crown? Umm… and ….?

The dress closes in the back with velcro. The collar doesn’t actually close in the back.

Lizzie’s shoes feature two flowers on the sides. The heels are plain, but the fronts feature a heart design.

This is the purse that comes with the bag of accessories. The red of the purse doesn’t match her outfit too well. I don’t think my Lizzie will carry this bag

The bag also comes with this set of cards that Lizzie can hold.

And that’s the Lizzie Hearts doll and playset!

I’m not sure of the retail price of this playset. This is the only way to get this Lizzie Hearts doll. She is slightly different than the signature doll, in that she has the pink in her hair. Is she different enough? I don’t think so. If I weren’t in a “gotta catch ‘em all” state, I don’t know that I would have gotten this doll. Then again, we’ve been in such a drought lately that I grabbed the first new doll that came my way. I’ve been desperate for a new doll.

The playset really isn’t all that great. I liked the Thronecoming book much better. This playset only has the one scene of Lizzie’s dormroom. Yes she has a chair, but that’s it. The book itself acts as a stand, so she doesn’t come with anything like that. I was so excited for the Thronecoming playset. It provides a great way for portable play. This playset, though, just seems more like storage. I don’t see as many opportunities for play here.

In short, the doll is not impressive in comparison to her signature doll. The playset doesn’t provide much in the way of extra play or accessories. If you’ve got to get them all, are super in love with Lizzie, or just like me, really wanting a new doll, then this playset is for you. Other than that, I’d say order the Signature Lizzie doll.

  1. I think that just like the Thronecoming playset, I’ll be waiting for this set to go on sale or clearance before I pick it up. There’s some things I’d love to get my hands on, like Lizzie’s shoes, headband & dress, the little jewelry box and purse, but since I don’t want the actual playset or the doll, it’s just not worth paying full price to me. I thought I might like the Lizzie, but there’s two things that are stopping me from liking her. The first thing is the pink in her hair. I don’t like how pink & red look together. The second thing I don’t like is how she’s wearing lots more gold eyeshadow on the eye with the heart. If she had the same amount on both eyes I would probably overlook the pink in her hair, but as it is, this bugs me.

  2. Lizzie looks GORGE in this set. (I love that lipstick color) I also love that dress. Why do here dresses have to have some sort of checker board design? I have to ask, what is a good beginners pullip? I really want to start getting into pullips. To me they look cute and good for display.

    1. Thanks!

      For a beginner Pullip, I would suggest going with someone you love. It you really want a cheap one, check out Pullip Ally. She’s a 2013 doll and is only $80. That will give you a good idea if you like the dolls. I don’t have her, so I can’t recommend her totally, but she’s the cheapest one I can think of off the top of my head.

      1. Pullip Ally is PRETTY, I have always loved black and white. She is at a pretty good price. (might have to check the Tuesday Morning to see if they have any pullips) Hopefully they make a Sailor Jupiter pullip, she is my favorite scout!

        1. But being the Harry Potter geek I am, I will probably have to make her a Luna Lovegood costume. (probably make her some spectraspecks too) Sewing is fun but you sometimes need patience and I will probably do her Hogwarts uniform rather than her pink jacket and skirt.

  3. What is with mattel making loads of ever after high dolls right at Christmas time? they had the whole year but they waited to push it all out right before the end of the year, so now every one has to scramble to get them. Then they come out with lack-luster dolls instead of the dolls everyone wants! ugh, sorry for the rant, nice review by the way ^_^

  4. I’m like you, I HATE the hang tags on the back of the head! What is the point!!! I love how Lizzie looks in her book, I like her lip color but not really interested in this set. I with the original Lizzie came with a deck of cards to hold. I’m anxious for new dolls too. Guess I’ll have to wait for Kitty! :)
