We were sent five mini CHOU CHOU dolls for the girls to play with.
My three are huge My Little Pony and Frozen fans so other figures aren’t getting too much of a look in at the moment, so I was interested to see how they’d be received.
The dolls are small and very cute and each one has their own mini fox pet friend and a different outfit as well as different boots/shoes and different fox hats (the idea of a fox hat might not be to everyone’s liking). There was a flurry of excitement opening them.
They loved the size of the dolls and the fact that all the outfits and accessories were interchangeable. They did find the outfits and shoes rather fiddly to remove and put back on again so they needed my help but this didn’t dent their enthusiasm. They picked up on the details of what the dolls were wearing, specifically that they had a different fox design on their outfits, which they really liked. I thought the clothes were really nice as some were dresses and others were more unisex all-in-ones.
My six-year-old’s (nearly seven) enthusiasm waned after a couple of days, but my four-year-old twins continue to be really engaged and after coming back from pre-school they were the first thing they went to. They encouraged great role play from them and they were very particular on how they wanted to dress them. You can visit
The dolls are recommended for three and up and were absolutely perfect for my four-year-old testers. There are eight dolls to collect and they’re £7.99 each so I think they make for a very good, slightly bigger stocking filler individually or more of a main present if you’re buying a couple.
