Pros:So cute, smaller hair, lots of details, cute pet
Cons:Can be hard to find
The Bottom Line: This is one of our cutest Lalaloopsy dolls
My kids have been obsessed with Lalaloopsy lately, and my 3 year old was extremely happy to receive this for her birthday. We had never heard of Toffee Cocoa Cuddles before, but she is a very cute doll and my kids immediately took to her as one of their new favorites.

I had not seen this doll before, but I usually see an assortment of Lalaloopsy products at Walmart, Target, and Toys R Us, with the big dolls averaging about $20-30. You can also find this as a mini set, which we do not have, but I find that my girls enjoy the mini sets just as much as the large dolls.
Toffee is a very cute doll, and I think her bright pink hair is one of the most eye catching of all our dolls, since it borders on fluorescent. When I first took her out of the box, I thought she was smaller than our other full-size Lalaloopsy dolls. However, it seems like it is just her hair is smaller, and therefore she appears a little smaller and is a little lighter too, which is actually kind of nice, considering these are heavy dolls.
Toffee has pretty brown eyes, and lavender bows in her hair that matches her heart-shaped cheeks. Her hair is made of plastic, detailed to look like yarn, and is pulled into short pigtails. I have grown to appreciate having dolls that don't have actual hair, since these really require no maintenance.
I love this doll's dress, which is gorgeous with lots of great details. The main part of her dress is pink satin with little brown dots, and has a brown ribbon that goes around her waist and ties in the front. There is also brown lace along the bottom and a white lace collar. Toffee has soft sleeves that are sewn to the dress to make it look like she is wearing a shirt under her dress (but I like that it is sewn together to keep it one piece). Under the main part of the dress is another layer that is bright pink velvet, which has swirly white stitching on it and is trimmed with a white, shiny organza. I love the details and thought that was put into the dress.
The doll has pink underwear that are painted on, and shoes that are removable. The socks and shoes are a single rubbery plastic piece with a slit in the back. They are easy to remove and replace, but not easy enough that they would ever fall off by accident. The shoes also have an "R" and an "L" on them so you can keep track of which shoe goes on which foot. The shoes are super cute, and are pink Mary Janes with 3 dark pink straps on top. Toffee also has white socks with a ruffle on top.
I love that the whole dress, as detailed as it is and constructed of so many parts, is one single piece. There is a long strip of strong Velcro that runs down the back, which makes it easy to remove and replace the dress. My kids have so many toys that have so many pieces, so it is nice when I don't have to worry about having to put a dress back together.
Toffee comes with a cute brown puppy that is made of hard plastic, but designed to look as though it is sewn, with stitching and button eyes. The puppy has a pink bow around it's neck, and there is a "bite" out of one of the dog's perky ears, which I think is very cute!
These dolls don't seem like the most cuddly of dolls, and they also don't sit on their own, but my girls love them. Toffee has been my 5-year-old's favorite Lalaloopsy, and I can see why, because when we got it, I thought it was easily one of the cutest in our collection.
Overall, this is probably one of our cutest Lalaloopsy dolls. My kids love playing with Toffee and her puppy, and she definitely stands out with her extremely bright pink hair!
Toffee Cocoa Cuddles™ was sewn from a chocolate box. She’s a sweetheart who’s always giving hugs. She loves candy, ruffles, and sending nice notes, but getting them makes her blush. She has a pet puppy.
