When I was at school, dream jobs used to include things like TV Presenter, Doctor, Vet, Radio DJ etc, but nowadays kids aspire to become social media influencers and YouTubers.
With this change in dynamic, it is not surprising that toys are being produced that reflect this dream and one of the first are new SNAPSTAR Dolls.
SNAPSTAR is an immersive world of fashion, beauty, music, photography and design where the trendsetting squad of social influencers define what’s next and aspirational.
There are six dolls to collect: Lola, Aspen, Izzy, Echo, Don and Yuki.
We were sent Echo and Yuki to review.
Echo is a dreamy damsel who floats through life with an easy-breezy outlook. Although she embodies the shimmering grace of a mermaid, she is never a ‘fish out of water’. Echo is a hair & makeup pro whose beauty tutorials have made her a social media superstar—no wonder all the girls like getting ready at Echo’s place!
Yuki is a feisty chick who marches to her own beat! She is a music enthusiast always cranking out the hottest EDM tracks. When Yuki isn’t in the studio she is booked solid DJing parties all over town; and she’s always sure to get her girls on the VIP list!
The real difference between these and other fashion dolls is that they come with free interchangeable hairstyles, a stand, a folding green screen and their very own app.
The free downloadable SNAPSTAR STUDIO APP, available on Google Play and App Store, allows kids to style and customise their SNAPSTAR’s hair, make-up, eye colour and shape, accessories and background scene!
The dolls also have 15 points of articulation that allows for striking just about any pose, so you can really go to down on getting the perfect shot.
Eliza had great fun designing her dolls ideal look using her iPad.
The rotating wheel at the bottom allows you to change the background, hairstyle, eyes, lips, the dolls name and can also give the picture a funky frame too. Once you are happy with your design, you can save the picture to your camera roll with a simple click of the button.
SNAPSTAR Dolls are available in all good toy shops and have an RRP of £17.99, with extra accessories costing from £4.99.
