Waverly Hits All the Sweet Spots

A glittery pink glowing seashell that reveals secrets.  The magical undersea land of Azarella.  Tiny three inch tall mermaids. A quest for magic pearls.  Cute squishy pearl pets. Lots of tiny pieces to collect and trade. Girls, meet Waverly and the Magic Seashells.

Yes, this toy is plastic and made in China.  And in general I’m not so much on board with filling my apartment with more plastic stuff.  However, sometimes a little girl wants some sparkle and glowing lights.  And if that’s on your little mermaid’s list, Waverly and the Magic Seashells will absolutely satisfy.

The Waverly and the Magic Seashell set comes with a battery operated magic shell, the Waverly mermaid doll, seaweed, a magic pearl, and the pearl-holding ring.  Once turned to the “on” position, the sea shell springs to life, revealing one of several “secrets” when the pearl is placed in the magic spot.  Waverly can swing in her swing, sit on her couch or slide down the slide.  Her five mermaid friends are available in separate sets, which come with unique hairbrushes (yes these dolls have HAIR), pearls, and a separate accessory.  Also available are Pearl Seashells with Pearl Pets included.  In addition to the big Seashell set, we received the individual Waverly doll set and Chip, the snail pearl pet.

Girls like tiny toys. Girls like sparkles.  Girls like mermaids.  Girls like collecting shells. Girls like pets.  Girls like battery operated toys that sparkle talk to them.  At least my girl does.

This toy has them all.

The Seashell Set is essential for the whole secret-revealing aspect of the pearls.  You need the set for them to talk to you.  So if you’re buying this toy you’ll probably want to start with that set (which is the most expensive set, at $24.99) and then add on.  And I look forward to meeting some mermaids with dark skin and hair.  All of the toys we received fit into the Seashell set and close up for storage.  And the miniature size means it doesn’t take up too much room on  your shelves.

But here’s the thing.  We received two Waverly dolls in our review package–one came with the seashell and one in her own set.  And when Cate opened them and discovered they were the duplicates, we thought about it, and we decided she could give the second doll to her cousin when we visited over the long weekend.  She packed the doll, and upon seeing her beloved older cousin, immediately gave the doll to her.  Just in case you were wondering, the 8 year old seemed pretty taken with the tiny mermaid as well.

And I think that’s what girls like.  They like to collect trinkets and then to trade them and even better, to give them away.   Yeah this toy talks at you.  It takes batteries.  It is plastic.  But it does allow for open ended, imaginative play.  It creates a neat new magical undersea world.  It believes in magic.  And these mermaid dolls have hips!

And that’s something babies definitely gotta have.
