Rapunzel Baby Doll and Crib Gift Set
The newest addition to the Disney Animators’ Collection is the Rapunzel Baby Doll and Crib Gift Set. This is just in time for the holidays and makes an amazing gift with everything included in the set and the beautiful presentation of the box.
The set includes baby Rapunzel, her crib, a blanket, a mattress, bedskirts, and the mobile that swings above the crib. The box is stunning and any little child would be delighted unwrapping this on Christmas or Chanukah. The only downside is removing everything from the box, so there is the option of parents removing every item (which takes several minutes because the set is very well packaged) and putting the set together so the child can see it all set up. Either way, it is a fabulous addition to the collection and something that will be treasured by little ones for years.
The bed is a sturdy plastic that looks like wood. It is adorned with designs from her kingdom and the sides include bedskirts that are attached to the bed. And of course there is a soft mattress for the baby. Above the headboard is a rod that holds a mobile. The mobile has five little toys that are free swinging so Rapunzel can play with them. There is, of course, Pascal, a duck, a horse, a bird, and an angel.
Rapunzel herself is similar in size and composition to the Animators’ Origins Collection. She is 13” from head to toe. Like the other dolls in the Origins collection, she is meant to lie down or sit up, however with the right stand she can be positioned to stand on a shelf. But baby Rapunzel is happiest sitting on lying on her bed.
Even as a baby, Rapunzel has a headful of soft hair. Her blonde locks are rooted and fall in soft curls. She has big green eyes and an open mouth with a little tongue. Her nightgown is lilac with deeper purple accents. She also has lilac underpants.
The assembly for the set requires an adult. The entire set is designed for ages 3+ because of the small pieces in the mobile, however the doll itself is suitable for ages 2+. She has a soft but her head, arms, and legs are soft plastic.
Due to the presentation, the sturdy construction of the bed, and the doll herself, I think this is one of the best selections this holiday season!
