So what do you think a Shibajuku doll is?
When I first heard that these dolls are set to be hitting the shelves and kids were going crazy over them , I thought that maybe they were something new , had something different to offer and maybe have a more realistic look to them .
I then read a little into their information and found that infact these dolls have been made to resemble and be in theme of the Harajuku, which is an area in Japan .
There are many fashion statements to be seen and these dolls are here to show you the newest and latest looks but they also allow you to join in on the styling.
There are 5 dolls to collect which each of them displaying a seperate personality and style
We were sent the beautiful Yoko .
Yoko is a fan of the dark and mysterious and loves and dreams of one day becoming a writer and writing her own spooky novels.
Although her outfit may sound a little glum , she is actually very pretty with her pink and purple hair , many sparkly accessories which you can also wear yourself .
Her beautiful big blue glass eyes and real eyelashes mesmorise you into loving her and I personally found her cute little pussy cat socks adorable.
Shibajuku Dolls are available from Smythstoys.com for only £24.99 and are suitable for ages 6+.
I find the fact that you can use the hairclips that come with the doll for yourself a great little incentive for interaction between doll and child and I am actually surprised that they are very good quality.
The doll comes with 4 clips , all different styles and the doll is fully poseable to.
We love her style and self expressions , her attitude is definitely seen in her outfit and we would love to own more of them.
My daughter who is 9 in particular loves dolls like this .
