Lalaloopsy Switch-A-Roo Pet Mouse

Lalaloopsy's are rag dolls that magically came to life when their last stitch was sewn. They were 1st released in the U.K in 2010 when there were just 8 different dolls , there are over 80 now and the collection is growing all the time . In the original release of 8 in Crumbs Sugar Cookie, she was made from a baker's apron . Like all Lalaloopsy doll's she has her own personality she is kind and sweet and has perfect manners at all times , and when she isn't baking she is having tea parties for all her friends. Her personal pet is a mouse.

There are currently only 2 different switch-a-roo pets the cat [ which I have previously reviewed] and the mouse we have had ours since July 2011 when I purchased them both from the toy entertainer online for £10 each. They are packaged onto a cardboard stand and looked a decent sized gift when wrapped unfortunately there is a lot of packaging and it doesn't look quite so good once opened.

The Mouse



The mouse itself is a round ball shaped of approx 13cm diameter , and is made of a soft plush , with a ribbed pattern at the front and a plain back . He features 2 large fixed button eyes and embroidered eyelashes, whiskers and nose . The stitching is excellent and had not come undone or frayed at all. On the back are 3 large fixed buttons , 2 for the ears and 1 for the tail . The mouse comes wearing large 8 x 10 cm plush white ears with yellow polka dot detail , which match Crumbs Sugar Cookie's apron a nice little detail i thought. He also comes wearing a curled pink plush tail.

The Accessories



With the mouse come a range of accessories for which to swap around .They all have the same sized slit and the buttons are all the same sized so you can swap them around , the buttons are nice and chunky so easy for children to do.
2 x heart shapes pink on 1 side , pink gingham check on the other
2 x pink flower shapes
3 x bows in yellow, pink, and pink polka dot
1 x pink flat tail
2 x cookie ears - these are the best , 2 large cookie shaped ears 1 even has a bite taken out .

Thoughts

I love Lalaloopsy as much as my daughter , I love the little extra touches and detail that go into the story of each doll and her pet . Out of the 2 switch-a roo's this one is the best . It larger and because of the plush fabric makes a nice soft toy , once they are bored of switching them , which with only 2 different ones to do that with its not going to take long . It is a shame they haven't released more switch-a-roo pets as they are very good quality . We have had no rips or holes or seems coming apart.

All in all i give the switch-a-roo mouse a 4 out of 5 . you get more for your money with the mouse than the cat , and the cookie ears are very cute and my daughter's favourite . The mouse has had more play than the cat because of it's soft plush my daughter will take this to bed and just use it as a cuddly toy .
Summary: A cute extra for a Lalaloopsy fan.

"I love Lalaloopsy as much as my daughter ," - that sounds a bit odd?!!!

These are weird looking things but kind of endearing!

Not keen on this one Chel. Looks a bit freaky.
