My daughter fell in love with Taylor Swift even before she knew who she was. Last year she got a Kids Bop cd which featured "Teardrops on My Guitar", and she went crazy over the song. She and all her friends know it and love to sing it, so much so that 3Po and Jammy have learned to like the song! So when I told her that I would be reviewing a doll that actually sang "Teardrops on My Guitar", she was so happy.
Here's how Jakks Pacific describes the Taylor Swift doll:
Jakks brings “It Girl” Taylor Swift to the toy aisle! The Taylor Swift Performance Collection Doll Assortment sings a 30 second highlight of one of Swift’s hit songs, such as “You Belong to Me”, “Our Song,” “Teardrops on My Guitar,” “Picture to Burn,” and “Love Story”. Each doll is dressed in Swift’s signature outfit from the song’s video and also comes with accessories, including a guitar and hair brush. Collect them all! Ages 6+, Suggested Retail Price: $19.99
The Taylor Swift doll is one of 4 dolls in the Taylor Swift Performance Collection. In addition to "Teardrops on My Guitar", there are 3 other versions. In each of the other versions, the Taylor Swift doll wears a different show outfit and sings a different tune. The Performance Collection is part of Jakks Pacific's new Spring 2010 line-up, which also includes new Disney Fairies dolls and playsets.
I think we lucked out and received the best doll in the whole collection. Of course, the Taylor Swift doll is the same no matter which song she sings: she's really pretty, with curly blond hair and sweet features that haven't been made up in a tarty way, unlike some other fashion dolls I detest *cough!*Bratz!*cough!* -- in fact, a lot like Taylor Swift herself. But I like her dress (a sea green evening dress) the best out of the 4 outfits because it's elegant, yet not too poufy-princess-y. And of course, it's great that we got the doll that sings The Pea's favorite Taylor Swift song, "Teardrops on My Guitar".
If only the Taylor Swift doll sang a bit longer than 30 seconds!
The Bottom Line
The Taylor Swift doll is the perfect collectible for any Taylor Swift fan -- and what tween girl isn't?
