Disney Store Classic Moana Doll
Moana is Disney’s newest heroine and, because the movie hadn’t been released during our testing period, it was interesting to see that children were still drawn to it. This is either a case of Disney’s marketing being highly effective or Moana is just a really appealing doll. Parents noted that Moana breaks all stereotypes of physical proportions found in so many dolls. No makeup and high heels here. They liked that…a lot. Her arms are fully articulated, and can be moved at the shoulders, the elbows and the wrists, adding a lot of fun possibilities and personalization to the imaginary play. Her hair is gorgeous, full and super soft, and her clothes are beautifully made with intricate detailing. Moana got high marks on everything from her size and quality of the build, her expression; basically everything about her appealed to our testers. Another great feature is the packaging. The box it comes in can be turned into two boats, complete with paddle.
