*Ad – We were gifted the Candylocks Dolls in exchange for this post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
We are all for the latest collectible craze on the market, and we haven’t been disappointed with the latest one – Candylocks Dolls from Spinmaster.
So What Are The Candylocks Dolls?
They are scented collectible dolls with hair so soft, it looks just like cotton candy! With 15 inches of colorful cotton candy-inspired hair wrapped around each doll. There are 23 dolls to collect including an ultra-rare doll with each having scented hair. Each cute Candylocks doll has a different scent, name, and theme. Delicious scents included are vanilla, apple, and cotton candy. There are also 2 larger deluxe 7-inch dolls to collect as well.
When you open up the cotton candy cone packaging and unravel the doll’s hair (it’s around her head like an ice cream cone!) you actually reveal which Candylocks doll is inside.
The unique texture of Candylocks’ extra-long hair makes it easy for kids to work with; it holds its shape and doesn’t come apart. You can create braids and buns, twists and ponytails, whatever you like!
What We Think Of The Candydolls
We got sent one of the small collectible Candylocks doll called Candy Dotty and one of the larger dolls Straw Mary. Straw Mary has strawberry related accessories and yellow and green hair. She smelled faintly of strawberry.
The hair is fantastically designed to style which way you want and it holds in place on the dolls. I’ve enjoyed myself having a go at braiding! It’s soft, fun, a great length to practice on as well. The Candylocks dolls are perfect for a budding hairstylist. I will say that we did have some shedding of the hair, after a while. But it wasn’t really a noticeable loss from the doll.
Each collectible doll comes with 2 surprise blind bags, which includes the hair accessories. There are 3 hair gems, a hair twirler and 2 hairpin accessories that match the doll’s theme. It’s good that you can mix and match the accessories within your Candylocks doll collection, and a good amount of accessories included with each doll.
The larger Candylocks doll comes with its own stylish accessories including hair chalk. Which is not messy at all. It can be used in your hair as well as the dolls. This was a great added element of fun.
The outfit comes off from the doll, including the boots. This is easily done and I’d imagine interchangeable with other deluxe Candylocks doll Lacey Lemonade.
One of the best things about collectibles is, of course, the collector’s guide. Each Candylocks doll comes with their own guide, so you can mark off your collection and see who you need to find.
Overall we are enjoying playing with the Candylocks dolls. They are unique, fun and gives you real practice with hair styling.
The Candylocks collectible dolls are £9.99 each from Amazon and other good toy retailers.
