Baby Belle is packaged in a large clear faced box. She si held in the packaging with several rubber bands, plastic ties…etc. I had to use my scissors to get her out safely, being careful not to clip her hair which is also secured with sewing thread in the cardboard backing.
The play experience with this doll is purely pretend and imagination based. She is dressed in a golden dress, like the iconic one from the movie and comes with a rose rattle. Her left hand is closed just enough to hold the rattle when it is placed there. She has beautiful brown hair which is styled beautifully and is soft to the touch.
I love that this doll is so beautiful and is classic in her soft body, baby doll design.
The rose rattle doesn’t actually rattle which I found really odd. I really wish that had been done better.
This Beauty and the Beast Baby doll is recommended for players 2 and older. However I can say confidently that given the choice, I wouldn’t hesitate to hand this doll to a younger child. There are no choking hazard pieces and she is soft bodied which makes her a great first baby doll.
Although the rattle left me scratching my head, I am actually really impressed with the Disney Beauty and The Beast Live Action Baby Belle Doll. The name implies some sort of action, but this dolls play time is purely imagination and pretend play based. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy for a young Beauty and the Beast fan.
