From the moment my daughter placed her eyes on her new Sophia doll toy, she has not stopped playing with her, or telling everyone she meets or knows about her new favorite toy! She immediately knew how to make Sophia talk- by pushing her necklace (which, I couldn't figure out myself), and carries her around with her every chance she gets. It's a perfect size, not too small, and not too big. The little animal figurines that come with the doll are cute as well although small, and potentially easy to lose or find in random places around the car or house. Sophia the First has brought a lot of fun and joy to our household thus far!
