As you might know already a new Disney princess is coming to a theater near you – Moana. She is from Oceania which includes Australia, New Zealand and all the islands surrounding this area.
Hasbro has released numeroud toys based on the characters of this new movie. Needless to say that Moana will be a popular toy this year I think. She is absolutely charming and quite different than any other princesses we already know. I have received the Disney Moana Musical Moana of Oceania for this review.
The doll is quite sturdy and possesses long curly hair. She comes with accessories like a anklet, hairband and a bracelet for her upper arm. Her knees and elbows do not bed but the doll can be placed at a sitting position. At her neck she has a necklace made out of a seashell that is embedded in her body. When you press the seashell, the doll will sing "How Far I'll Go" featured in the Disney's Moana movie.
The doll comes with three A76 batteries. Eventually, you will have to change the batteries. I wonder why they have chosen this type of battery for the doll. Would it be too bulky to have an AAA battery instead? I wonder. You can change the batteries in her back by simply removing the screw and opening the section where the batteries are located. Also you will find a little switch in the middle of her back to go from demo mode to singing mode. The switch is automatically placed on demo mode when the doll is in stores.
Disney Moana Musical Moana of Oceania is not easy to find in Canada. Amazon.ca has it for a very ridiculous price and I have not found it on ToysRUs Canada or Wal-Mart Canada either. The doll can be purchase for a more reasonable price on amazon.com.
