We have a ballerina in our house. We actually now have two – Paige and Molly Ballerina. Paige has been taking ballet classes for a year. Her most prized possession is her pink ballerina medal she received after her first ballet concert. She was so proud of herself, and that she overcame her nerves to perform. At only 5 years old, with mommy standing behind the curtain, she took to the stage with the routine she had been learning all year.
This year’s concert is only in term 4, but she is already excited to receive another medal and learn a new routine. Molly Ballerina has already joined her for two lessons, as Paige loves to show her the new moves. I’m a little envious of Molly, as I only get to watch the lesson once at the end of the term. She will have to fill me in on what they are learning.
There are only a few toys that my children own, that the adults love to play with as much as them. When Molly Ballerina arrived from Prima Toys for Paige, it was love at first sight. Paige adored her new doll that can talk and play music, and can also tie her hair up in a bun. Granny, my mom, also fell in love and thinks that Molly is one of the most beautiful dolls ever. My godmother was also taken with Molly, and wants one for her granddaughter. Molly has a timeless charm, that girls (of all ages) want to play with her.
My favourite feature is that Molly can play 8 classical ballet tunes by pressing her hand. This feature isn’t obvious though, unless you received instructions for her. A music note printed on her hand, would be a nice reminder for children to press to hear the songs.
Molly also speaks 200 words, with phrases such as ‘let’s dance together‘ and ‘I want to hug you‘. This adds an interactive element, and Paige’s favourite feature. Her eyes close when laid flat to rest. She has the most gorgeous hair for a doll, and pretty pink pumps. The ribbon laces on her shoes started to fray, so I put a little bit of clear glue at the ends to stop the ribbon from splitting.
She is a very sweet doll, and at 40 cm tall, she is a good size to hold.
