Fisher-Price has a great set of collectible toys out right now based on a popular kid’s show, Nickelodeon’s Shimmer and Shine. This set not only includes the main characters Shimmer and Shine but also includes our subject today which is the pet friends also featured on the show. The Fisher-Price Shimmer and Shine Tala and Nahal dolls are very cute and very affordable additions to the Shimmer and Shine collection.

Tala and Nahal are easily unboxed. Attractively displayed in a plastic package with cardboard backing, Tala and Nahal are pictured with their hair brush accessories and included genie gem stickers. Fisher-Price goes easy on us with their Shimmer and Shine Tala and Nahal dolls because they are easily removed from the package by unwinding or clipping the few clear rubber bands holding them in place. Once, the rubber bands are removed they are ready for playtime to start. unboxing tala and nahal

The Playtime Experience

Playing with the Fisher-Price Shimmer and Shine Tala and Nahal dolls made it clear to me why they are part of a set. The dolls themselves are each fixated plastic other than their swiveling heads. Tala has one small pony tail that you can use her brush to maintain however, Nahal has no hair and only features soft ears. A lot of the play with the Fisher-Price Shimmer and Shine- Tala and Nahal dolls is purely imagination and creative play, which I love. However, I was getting bored with them quickly when they were separated from the other pieces in the Fisher-Price Shimmer and Shine collection. shimmer and shine tala andn ahal toys

Things I Liked

I like that Fisher-Price tried to give each piece in this collection something unique. The dolls show their individuality in small features like Nahal’s soft ears or Tala’s soft hair. I like that the Fisher-Price Shimmer and Shine collection is very affordable and encourages kids to use their imagination during playtime. I think that toys based on favorite kid shows and movies always end up being of a higher value because kids tend to love playing with their favorite characters. It is great for that not only for allowing play with the main characters but including Tala and Nahal as well as the main characters’ pets.

Things I Didn’t Like

I am not 100% sure Fisher-Price has a thought through the brush accessories that come with the Shimmer and Shine Tala and Nahal dolls. The hair brush accessories are almost as big as the actual dolls themselves and since the only hair present is a small bit in Tala’s pony tail. I’m not sure it was necessary to have them be so large. I don’t generally have any dislikes for the dolls themselves and they are part of a great set and stay very true to the look of their characters on the Nickelodeon Shimmer and Shine series.

Appropriate Ages

Fisher-Price recommends their Shimmer and Shine collection for ages over three. Tala and Nahal are very appropriate for kids in a wide age group over three. I wouldn’t necessarily be worried about using Tala and Nahal with younger children but their accessories are another story. Generally, kids over three know not to attempt eating the brushes or sticker accessories. Kids over three will get the most benefit out of this toy and the entire Shimmer and Shine dolls because they are more able to use their imaginations to re-enact their favorite show.

Tala and Nahal Review: Worth it?

Tala and Nahal are getting two thumbs up from me. They are adorable toys that are affordable and fun to play with. As a parent, toys that encourage kids to use their imagination, are my favorite kind of toys. I love them for two big reasons: One, these toys are generally quieter than most of the toys in my son’s arsenal. Secondly, toys that encourage imaginative play are great for growing minds and encouraging creativity. The Shimmer and Shine toys check boxes in both of these areas for me and they are more than budget friendly in their pricing. All of these factors combined makes them a great buy and worth the investment in the whole set! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x38eLNCDvNw

    Great set!

    Shimmer and Shine are very popular as a television series on Nickelodeon right now. Fisher-Price did a great job capturing these characters with their new Shimmer and Shine series of dolls. I enjoyed playing with the Shimmer and Shine Tala and Nahal dolls but I definitely think they area only entertaining long-term if they are paired with the other parts of the set.
