Video Of The Month!

Hey Gang!

I am featuring one of my favorite doll video makers, DIY doll stuff makers and
an avid recycler -- My Froggy Stuff!
They reviewed the Disney Store Moana Doll!  I thought it was a good review.
I wanted to share it with you plus post my own review of the Hasbro Moana!

Disney Store Doll
She has a smile (without teeth for those of you who have a thing about that)
and they have made her look feminine!

If you shop in Walmart, Target or Toys R Us, you might have also seen this Moana
but she is different.  This doll is made by Hasbro.  Different makers do dolls 
differently as you might have notice from Mattel versions of Disney dolls!

Hasbro Doll
This doll is shorter--not 11 inches like the Disney.
She is just about 9 inches.  More like Stacie!
There isn't the same detail in the clothing as the Disney Doll.
The costume's detail is printed on.
She does have articulated elbows and knees!
 The Hasbro doll doesn't look as feminine as the Disney Store doll!

There other Hasbro versions of this doll like in the 
Disney Store!  This set with Maui 39.99...
 and by himself for 29.99!

 He is not really play scale!
Ms. Leo: Maui, I see you in the thrift store!
There is one that comes with a boat!
At a boat load of money 30.99
I am kinda liking the boat but I don't need
 another boat around here!
They used a better looking doll pictured on the box.
This is the one that sings at 29.99!
Ms. Leo: I have some stories to tell you about 
talking/sing dolls going off in the middle of the night! 

 This one swims for 19.99

I really think this the Hasbro version of the doll makes a better boy.  So that
is what I did. To me the face looks like a young boy.  The hair is a bit long, so
it might need cutting.

Yes, there are small breast but they can get covered.  They are not the size of
Barbie breast and to me aren't a big deal.
The articulation isn't too band but the feet are big and wide for the body.
The doll does have Fred Flintstone feet! As a girl, heels are out!
 Compared to Stacie!
Moana is taller!
 Compared to Skipper!
Moano is smaller!
 Moana redress as GT!  He is my new Native American boy!
GT's real name is Adoeete! Which means Great Tree in Kiowa. 
GT: Hey Gang!

There will be more on GT in November!

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Thanks for sharing, Ms. Leo. I enjoyed the video and your commentary about the doll. I don't think I'll add her to my collection, but it's great to know she exists. I love her hair and her facial features.

Hi Ms. Leo! Great post! I love the new Disney Store Moana doll and can't wait to add her to my collection. I'm really excited about taking my girls to see this in the theater as well. :)

I haven't seen her in the stores yet so thanks for sharing!

Male Doll World said...

I always enjoy your doll reviews and comparisons. I totally forgot about Hasbro dolls (name from the past!) Thank you for sharing.

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks for your comments dbg of BDE, Farrah, Muff, Male Doll World and April.

dbg of BDE, I would wait to see how the Disney Store doll looks in person. The baby Moana is so cute!

Farrah, I have not heard anything about the movie. I hope you and your girls enjoy it!

Muff and Male Doll World, when I was in Walmart, she was on the very top shelf. They didn't want to sell it to me. I not sure if the movie has been released.

April, Hasbro must have the Disney contact. I believe Maleficent was done by Jakks.

I just ordered this doll, and I was doing a Google image search to see if I could find photos of her articulation, and I came across one of your photos. Thanks for this informative post, and for the video! I think that I may need to order the Disney doll as well, and they really should have given the Disney doll knee articulation!

Glad I could help! I got mine at Walmart. Until yours arrives, you should be able to see her in the store.
