DKL Toys - mic.o.mic & Corolle Doll Review
I was delighted to be chosen by DKL Toys to review two of the products from their fab range of children's toys, the mic.o.mic Small Aeroplane and the Corolle Mini Corolline Blonde Doll.
H was in charge of road testing (or rather, runway testing) the mic.o.mic airport and small aeroplane. The components that make up the mic.o.mic small plane are chunky and durable plastic, and easy for little fingers to assemble. They're bright & colourful and use a press stud connector system to build the model. H managed to construct most of the model himself with only a little help from me, and will no doubt enjoy taking it apart and re-assembling it many times over. The airport zip-up mat is a great little storage bag and play mat for the plane, opening out to become a little runway. A great little build & play toy that will keep little ones well entertained. We'll definitely be expanding our collection of the mic.o.mic toys and adding one or two of the cars!
E is a huge fan of dolls and babies and was thrilled (as I am sure you can tell by her little face) when I gave her the Corolle Mini Corolline Blonde Doll. She's a really caring and motherly little girl and spends hours playing with her dolls and their accessories, so this was an ideal toy for her to try out. Her face lit up when I handed her the box, E said that her Corolline Doll is "so pretty" and "smell lovely!", as it is scented with a lovely vanilla.
It's the perfect size for her little hands and is lightweight, at 20cm it's just right to pop in her backpack when we go out and about. She has taken great delight in showing everyone her new 'baby' and loves to brush Corolline's long hair.
There is a list of DKL toy stockists available on their website, and you can follow them on Twitter, and like them on Facebook to keep up to date with news, offers and competitions.
