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!”
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 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 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.
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.
