Bush Baby World Princess Melina – The review
Bush Baby World Princess Melina – We were selected a few months ago to be toy testers for the Rainbow Toy Awards and were really excited when we got the email to say that we were going to be sent a Bush Baby.
I looked these up before it arrived and I knew that Isabelle would love it.
Isabelle is crazy mad about any kind of collectables, and this was cute, pink and furry so ticked all the boxes.
The Bush Baby
We received Princess Melina who has flecks of glitter through her fur and has a Princess crown. She lives in a sparkling palace within Shimmer Mountain where Shimmer Stars grow. Only Princess Melina can pick the Shimmer Stars which are very rare and are used to protect the Dream Tree.
Isabelle is all about the accessories. The accessories are the difference between a thumbs up and thumbs down when it comes to toys.
Princess Melina comes with a pink pod which she sleeps in, a comb, a Royal Sceptre and a Shimmer Star which comes in a little silver drawstring bag.
What does she do?
She waggles her ears and eyes using a little button on her back.
You can brush her fur and hair.
She is one of many Bush Babies that you can collect. You can also get the Dream Tree which all the pods hang from which Isabelle has her eye on.
You can also visit the Bush Baby Website where there are some videos to watch, activities, colouring sheets and printables.
As I’ve said previously, Isabelle loves watching a You Tube video so we thought we’d do an unboxing video of our own.
I must point out at this stage that Isabelle had absolutely no idea what was in the box so that you can see her genuine reaction.
What we thought.
Princess Melina gets a huge thumbs up from Isabelle. She’s soft and brushable and the pod fits perfectly over the edge of her bed. Once you’ve put Princess Melina into the pod, all of the accessories fit in as well which is a bonus. This was the first time that we’d seen the Bush Babies but it is definitely something that Isabelle would choose herself. She has (or will) add the Bush Baby Tree to her Christmas list. I should also point out that Isabelle has just turned seven and this was very suitable for her age range, but would also have appealed to her at a younger age as well.
The Bush Babies retail for £19.99 which we think is entirely reasonable.
