If there's one thing Eva really loves, its a bag. She takes after me on that one. She has quite a few bags but she decided this was the bag she was going to use for big school (she started preschool in September). It's a good sized rucksack and would be perfect for sleepovers or days out. She carries it almost everyday to school and she literally has about 2 things in there but she loves it.
Eva also loves to take pictures. Again I think she has developed that passion from me. As you can imagine I'm not always willing to give her my actual camera to use so this was an idea solution. The camera came with batteries (this is normally unheard of in toyland). She set to work straight away taking pictures of anything and everything in sight. When she looks through the viewfinder she can see various scenes from Sofia the First and when she presses to take a picture, it actually makes a camera noise. I love the fact that it comes with a removable lens. Just like mummy's she says.
Eva already had a Sofia the First dressing up dress so she was thrilled to get the tiara to match.
The royal friend figurines were Sofia, Ruby and Jade. Each one comes with an animal featured in the show. The figures are identical to how they look on the programme. I often find with children's toys that they can sometimes look slightly odd but these are a very good match. They are great for imaginative and role play which she tends to do a lot of nowadays. They are a handy size to pack in a bag if you are going to a restaurant or anywhere where the kids would need entertaining. In fact, Eva packed them in her hand-luggage for our very recent trip on the Eurostar.
Amber's closet playset comes complete with an Amber figurine, a closet, a mannequin and removable clothes. Eva is able to remove and place the clothes on Amber without my help.
Overall, we think these toys are really good value for money. There are plenty more available in the collection and with prices as low as these then we don't mind adding to the collection. You can view and buy the collection here, Smyths.
