Playing with I’M A GIRLY doll – Review

A few weeks ago we were invited to attend the launch of I’M A GIRLY doll in London. Since I told my little one about it she had been counting the days to meet this cool doll from Switzerland.

Finally the day arrived. At the event, J was dressed along with other girls and boys as proper stylists and were given a doll each to do a completely make over: dress, outfit, accessories…

She fell in love with the one she was playing with called Lucy, and another one called Zoe. After the event we had to wait a couple of weeks to receive the doll in the post. When she finally hold her own doll she was completely over the moon. I think one of the main reasons why this doll stands out from the rest are her realistic proportions. If I were 7 years old, like my girl, I would be super excited to play with a doll like this.

The number of outfits, accessories, wigs, that you can choose are limitless. They all have different styles, so that means you can create your own. It gives the child plenty of freedom to be innovative, to take risks, even to the point where you can cut their hair, and hey! that is not a problem, you just get another wig, maybe even in a different colour? Who wouldn’t like that?! When I was a little girl my mum found me once with all my dolls with her hair cut, she didn’t know what to do, if to laugh or to cry! But she eventually bought me some wigs for them, but we are talking about the 90’s so none of those wigs she bought would fit properly.

However, with I’M A GIRLY, you can really ‘Cut hair, and Don’t care‘ because if you want another hairstyle you get a different wig, which by the way, they look of very high quality. Like all the rest of the clothes and accessories. Even the box where the doll comes in is like a little wardrobe, so the child can play with it too.

I asked my girl what she liked the most about her doll ‘Zoe’? Thinking she would actually said something specific but she told me – Everything!- what do you mean by everything? – I replied. Well, she basically kept going saying she loved her clothes, her shoes, her hair, yep, that’s everything.

What I like most as a mum of a girl who is growing too fast and still wants her to be a child is that with I’M A GIRLY my girl can be exactly that, a girl. A girl that likes to play with dolls, which necessarily doesn’t mean to play like a 3 year old. I don’t believe on the idea that girls need to act, dress and pretend they are teenagers already. Unfortunately sometimes it seems that society would like us to believe that. With this doll though, girls can still play like girls, no need to put your doll aside because you are not going to look ‘cool’ with your friends. She can use her imagination, be creative, and most of all, have lots of fun playing. They really become an ideal ‘bridge between childhood and teenage years’.

    I loved your review. I laughed out loud at the part about you cutting your dolls hair! It is great that our girls can change the dolls hairstyles according to their preference. I’M A GIRLY really did a great job. x

      Haha thanks Roxanne. I know, we used to go crazy when littles, right? 😀 these dolls are really cool. Our little ones are very lucky!

    It definitely sounds like the perfect go-between doll for kids that aren’t quite teenagers yet but aren’t toddlers either. The outfit choices and wigs look amazing! We like that they are designed by kids!

      So true. It is definitely a way to encourage children’s creativity. What a good opportunity for the Kids4Kids panel and for us to play with their creations. 🙂

    Lovely review! My daughter has already ‘trimmed’ one of the wigs, I’m so happy the hair is interchangeable.
    Really enjoyed reading your review

      Thanks Tinuke! We haven’t trimmed their hair yet but I suppose it will happen sooner or later 🙂

    Totally agree with ref growing up. I have encouraged my girls to play and enjoy their youth for as long as possible. Play is so important for mental well being and these dolls are so beautiful even I want to play with them!

    How cute that your daughter was so excited! My girls loved their doll too. x

    She’s such a gorgeous doll, I bet she’ll be at the top of some Christmas lists – especially with the trendy clothes and changeable hair!

    The more I see of these dolls and the more individual they become the more I love them.

    My daughter loves her I’M A GIRLY DOLL, she’s able to play with her in a more grown up way which she loves. I’ve lost count already of how many times she’s done her hair
