Pros: Work well together, fun, and a good way to learn manners
Cons: Battery eaters
I purchased the Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin Caucasian dolls play set for my seven year old daughter. I used the try me option in the store and was able to play with it a bit in the sample mode. It looked like some thing that she would enjoy. It was on sale too so that was another reason that I chose to buy the Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin Caucasian dolls play set that day. I may have thought twice otherwise, and now I am glad that I did not think that way.
The Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin Caucasian dolls play set only cost me $29.99 at the Toys R Us toy store located near by me, here in Rhode Island where I reside. The regular price was ten dollars more at $39.99. So I got a nice price break on the set. But I will certainly say now, that even at the full price they are worth it. Although they do have one minor flaw that I will get in to below.
Details and facts:
This set comes with two dolls, both are Caucasian. Even though they are meant to be twin dolls. They do not look exactly a like. One has blond hair, blue eyes, pigtails in her hair and wears a pink jumper dress and purple shoes. The shoes do not come off of either doll. But the dresses can be taken off. The other doll has brown hair up in pigtails, light brown eyes and wears a purple jumper dress with pink shoes. So although they are alike, they are also very different as well. This making them a bit more appealing as far as I am concerned.
These dolls do come with batteries. However only the blond doll has batteries. There is a wire connecting the two dolls when you open them. Both dolls will work in try me version while the wire is plugged in. Once you take the wire out of the dolls the blond goes in to full mode play. While the other is inactive. Why is she inactive? There are no batteries in this doll. The wire was what made her work. This is the slight flaw. Because these dolls each take six AA batteries.
To replace the batteries you will need a phillips head screw driver to remove the screw that holds the battery case together. Now you have to pull the material strap. This lifts up the first battery case to expose the second one. Fill the second one with three AA batteries. Then put the 1st battery case back over it leaving the material strap hanging out for easy access to it for the next time. Now fill the first case with 3 more double A batteries. Then replace the cover and screw. Now switch the doll on. She will talk about how big she has grown and now be in play mode looking for her sister.
In play mode these dolls will move, they will turn their heads, lift their arms and wiggle a dance or two. They will sing songs like Row Row Row Your Boat, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and more. These dolls will also make knock knock jokes of all kinds. The Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin Caucasian dolls play set comes with a juice box with a straw. This is stable to thew juice box, it also comes with a bowl of food and a fork with play food on it.
When you put the fork or juice box up to the blond doll's mouth she will say mm,mmm and this will prompt the other doll to ask if she will share. And so begins a conversation between them with plenty of saying please and thank you. If you put them up to the brown hair doll's mouth she will will make slurping like noises and say that they are her favorite snack, the blond will ask for a bite and so on.
The Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin Caucasian dolls can also laugh, ask for snacks from their mommy, play side and seek with each other and so much more. They even know if you have given them a hug. They have a sensor on the side of their heads that helps them to interact with each other and with you. Magnets with in the mouth area know when they are being given a snack and so fourth. It is amazing how well they work together. They can say over one hundred different things that correspond with the other doll, prompting response.
The age recommendation on the Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin Caucasian dolls play set is that it is meant to be used by children who are ages two years old and up. This is great because my son has joined in the play and he just turned 2 a couple of months ago. He adores when they sing. And had learned a few songs from this set as well. The age recommendation is a good one. There are no small parts in relation to the Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin Caucasian dolls play set.
Use and recommendation:
My daughter has been having a blast with the Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin Caucasian dolls play set. She even saved the inner box that they came in. This is a table like cardboard cut out with chairs that the dolls are seated in when you buy them. It stayed in great shape so she kept it for them to sit at when she gives them the snack or juice that they came with. The also came with a brush which I think I forgot to mention above, so figured I would add it in down here.
This doll play set was worth every penny and then some. The flaw is that they take a lot of batteries and we have had to recharge the rechargeable batteries that we use three times with in the last month because my daughter plays with these dolls so much on a daily basis. However, this is only a problem if you are buying disposable batteries for them. If ou get rechargeable at least it won't run you in to any extra costs, so for me it wasn't much of a flaw, but for some one not using rechargeable batteries it could be.
The Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin caucasian dolls play set gets use by my daughter and my son as well. He has learned Row Row Row Your Boat, and the Pat A Cake rhyme very well from it, and he will do it right along with them. These dolls are loud enough to be heard and sound very clear. There is no static. They are a good volume level, but not so loud that it is bothersome to me or anyone else in the house while they are being played with.
This set makes a very nice gift and provides endless hours of fun. It also can be a great way to teach your child manners. Both dolls stress the fact that they have to be polite and say please and thank you, they both are polite to each other and the Mommy that owns them. These would make any little girl happy, and in my case, a toddler boy too. I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend the Toys R Us exclusive You and Me Too Cute Twin Caucasian dolls play set.
