==Sprinkle Spice Cookie Lalaloopsy Littles Doll ==
If you have read some of my other reviews you will know we are Lalaloopsy mad in our house and have a growing collection . Lalaloopsy started off with just 8 dolls, the story is that each ragdoll magically came to life when their last stitch was sewn. They all have their own personalities that correspond to their clothes and accessories . In the first 8 dolls released was Crumbs Sugar Cookie, and then about a year later along came her little sister Sprinkle Spice Cookie. As my daughter was such a fan of Crumbs we had to get Sprinkle too, the r.r.p is around £15 but i often find them on amazon for around £10.
== The Box ==
All the big lalaloopsy sisters and the little sisters come in the same house shaped box . It has a hard cardboard back with a full see through front , you can see exactly what you are getting in the box clearly. You get Sprinkle, her pet mouse and a baby bottle. There is also a collectible poster included , these are double sided with the doll on one side and a group picture on the other. The handle is styled to look like a large safety pin or nappy pin .
There is a heart shaped tag tied to the box that has a picture of Crumbs and Sprinkle on , and on the other side tells you Sprinkle Spice Cookie was sewn on May 15 th.
She was sewn from a baker's apron and her personality says she has a huge appetite and a serious sweet tooth. Her favourite things are fresh cookies and licking cake batter from the bowl .
== The Doll ==
Sprinkle Spice Cookie is a hard plastic doll that stands approx 18 cms high . She has a larger head than body , bright pink hair , and the trademark button eyes. She has a little chocolate mark near her mouth from where she has been pinching the cookies which is a lovely extra detail.
Undressed she had a nappy and large pin detail molded onto the body ,she has the same mitten style hands that all the Lalaloopsy dolls have and plain angled feet.
Her dress has a white bloomer style bottom with a pink with tiny red spots short dress. She comes with a large yellow check bib with yummy sewn across , and cute little yellow shoes . which are all removable and fit all the other little sisters.
Sprinkle comes with her own pet mouse that looks like a cookie. She is about 4-5 cms high and has what looks like iced on features to keep with the cookie theme. The mouse also has a bit nibbled out of his ear my daughter loved this and likes to pretend Sprinkle has been eating it .
She also comes with a small baby bottle, a 1 piece molded plastic design with detail printed on.
== My Thoughts ==
Now as we are big Lalaloopsy fans so i do try to be objective when looking at the dolls , but i honestly can not find a fault or a niggle with this doll, she is incredibly cute , she is safe , there are no small bits or hazards. She is very well made , the clothes have a good finish and for the price I think she is great value.
As for play time i have had my monies worth 10 times over already , she is played with every day , and is a nice size to take with you if you are out and about .
But the best thing about Lalaloopsy is the detail , they really put a lot of thought into it , Sprinkle's bib is made from the same fabric as her big sister Crumbs dress, this was the baker's apron so it all fits into their own stories and personalities. My daughter loves this as it makes her make believe stories more real , and the fact they both have a pet mouse is another nice touch .
Out of all the little sisters this is probably the best value as you get a bottle as well as a pet , the other little sisters just have a pet .
5 out of 5. A lovely doll i would buy again.
'The Lalaloopsy were once rag dolls who magically came to life when their very last stitch was sewn. Each doll has their own personality that comes from the fabrics used to make them. Lalaloopsy live in a whimsical world full of silly surprises, including Mini Lalaloopsy and fun Lalaloopsy playsets and accessories'. Well that's how the story goes anyway!
I first came across Lalaloopsy a couple of years ago when I saw a Lalaloopsy doll whilst out shopping. It was so lovely and original - like a traditional rag doll but with a very modern twist. At the time there were only a couple of Lalaloopsy dolls available. Now there is a whole Lalaloopsy world which include Lalaloopsy dolls, Lalaloopsy Littles, Lalaloopsy outfits, Lalaloopsy Minis and Lalaloopsy playsets!
Needless to say it was pretty soon after that my daughter received her first Lalaloopsy doll, which instantly set of her love of all things Loopsy! Shortly before her fifth birthday she told me she wanted a Lalaloopsy Littles doll to be a 'little sister' for her larger Lalaloopsy doll. Her larger Lalaloopsy doll is called 'Crumbs Sugar Cookie' so I thought I would choose a Littles doll that looked and sounded most similar - she was called 'Sprinkle Spice Cookie' - How cute!
Lalaloopsy Littles are widely available at most toy shops including Toys R Us, The Entertainer and Amazon. I brought my daughters from Toys R Us for about £13.00. They generally cost between £10.00 - 15.00. There are currently about 10 different Lalaloopsy Littles dolls available (which include Bundles Snuggle Stuff, Trinket Sparkles, Scribbles Splash and Trouble Dusty Trails!). They're all very cute, I couldn't choose a favourite. Sprinkle Spice Cookie came packaged inside a beautifully decorated box, much like the bigger Lalaloopsy Dolls. You can see right inside the box to see exactly what you're getting.
Here is the description of Sprinkle Spice Cookie: "Sprinkle Spice Cookie was made from pieces of a baker's clothes. She's got a huge appetite and a serious sweet-tooth. Her favourite things are fresh cookies and licking cake batter from the bowl. She has a pet mouse".
Each Lalaloopsy Littles doll comes a 'pet' and another accessory. Sprinkle Spice Cookie has a small (but chunky) bottle of milk and a cookie which is shaped like a cute little mouse. There is a bite out of the ear of the cookie mouse and a little chocolate splatter on the side of Crumbs Sugar Cookie's mouth!
Lalaloopsy Littles are very similar to normal Lalaloopsy dolls, except half the size and slightly less 'grown up' looking (they're about 19cm tall so smaller but certainly not small). I find that my daughter plays with her smaller Lalaloopsy Littles doll more often than she plays with her bigger Lalaloopsy doll, I believe this is because it's a lot smaller, lighter and is easier/more convenient to move around and take out and about. Sprinkle Spice Cookie is very cute looking - she has short pink hair (moulded from plastic) which she wears in bunches, big black button eyes, rosy pink cheeks and a little smile (along with the chocolate splatter). Her head is significantly bigger than her body, this makes her look cuter and more animated than if she was all one size. She wears a pink spotty dress, yellow slip-on shoes and a pink checked pattern bib which has 'yum' stitched on it. She has lots of lovely detail. All of her clothes can be removed and she has pink knickers/nappy printed on underneath to avoid any embarrassing exposures! My daughter is constantly dressing/undressing her and using her bib when feeding her milk and cookie to her. I haven't seen her yellow shoes for a while though! She quite often plays with her Lalaloopsy dolls together but is happy to play with her Lalaloopsy Littles doll alone or with her other dolls and toys (many of which are a similar size). Her arms and legs can be bent which allows my daughter to put her in different positions and can sit her up unaided (although she doesn't stand up by herself). Her head can be spun all the way around and can even be tilted side to side - she looks even more adorable when her head is tiled to one side!
The doll is very good quality. The whole thing (including the accessories) is made from a thick, durable plastic. We've had this doll for almost a year and it's in perfect condition, including the clothes. Although it's quite small, it's also very chunky and is the perfect size for young children to handle. The age recommendation is 3+ years.
You can also buy seperate outfits for Lalaloopsy Littles. My daughter has a stripey pyjama set which she regularly changes Sprinkle Spice Cookie in to for bed!
My daughter plays with her Lalaloopsy Little Spinkle Spice Cookie doll on a regular basis. She also likes to take it out and about with her. It's very cute and looks a lot different to her other same sized dolls. She tends to favour her Sprinkle Spice Cookie doll over her Barbie-type dolls and although her larger Lalaloopsy doll is well loved, her smaller Lalaloopsy Littles doll is the one which gets played with the most (this is probably due to the smaller/lighter/more convenient aspect that I already mentioned). It may be a little overpriced but it's also very nice looking and very good quality. I am happy to recommend this lovely little doll.
