Beauty and the Beast is a favorite Disney movie for both children and adults alike. It is one of those classic movies that were able to pass through age and sex and take a special place in all of our hearts. Like many of you, I was not too sure what to expect when I heard that one of my favorite animated movies of all time was going to get reimagined into a live action feature. I waited for the movie to hit theaters on March 17th, 2017. I assumed I was going to hate it, but instead came out of the theater with a brand new love and appreciation for this tale as old as time.
I knew that there was going to be all new toys that I could add to my already large collection. One of those that caught my eye was the App-Controlled Belle. I always love when classic toys take on a new form of technology. I knew this doll would be hot for the holidays, so I had to take a closer look at what Belle would be bringing to the toy stores.
I have to admit, I fell in love with the doll the moment I saw her. The doll fits in perfectly with the reimaging of the movie and is a fine replica of Emma Watson as Belle. From her beautiful features to the intricate design of her ball gown, it has all been perfectly captured.
I know there are many people who are going to buy this doll simply because they are either a Beauty and the Beast fan or they know someone who is. That is how it is here in my family, both me and my daughter love Beauty and the Beast, so we might end up having to buy two! However, there has been a lot of talk about the new look of Belle, with many people simply saying she is ugly. I try not to bring controversy into these posts, but I just find that disrespectful to both Emma Watson and Belle. They are both beautiful women, and I feel as though all of these dolls have captured that. It is true they do not have that same cookie cutter beauty of many of the other dolls on the market, but that is what I like. In fact, I feel as though much attention was used into getting all of the details perfect with Belle. For that reason alone, I believe this is one of those dolls that is going to become rather collectible several years from now.
If you are a collector, you are going to love the fact that the doll is designed to last. It is not like many of the other technological toys and dolls that get tossed onto the shelves every single year. In fact, this toy has a true sense of being a high-quality toy.
Now that we have talked about the beauty of the doll, let’s look at the real fun. We love that we have the ability to control Belle through the convenience of the free app. The app s going to allow us to move Belle and let her dance to several songs. All that is required is downloading the app, and instructions are included in the box.
If you are a true fan of Belle, this app controlled doll is a must have for your collection. This is one of those toys that come around which is perfect for both the child and adult. I for one will be waiting for this one to ship as I have already pre-ordered it!
