Emmy is always on the lookout for new toys to try.

It’s a kid thing, but she takes it even farther, and she is pretty serious when it comes to toys and playtime. For her, a toy needs to do more and inspire her. She likes toys that help her take playtime from ordinary to extraordinary just like Sofia the First from the TV series on Disney Junior about a girl whose life turns from ordinary to extraordinary when she suddenly becomes a royal princess! sofia the first

I asked Emmy what she loves the most about Sofia the First and she said that she loves how she likes to have fun and that she always tries to be brave no matter what happens. We talked about how Sofia’s life changed one day and that she was scared at first of her new life but that she now likes it. She also loves that she can talk to animals with her amulet because it’s magic.

When we heard that the new line of Sofia the First toys has just launched we headed to our local store to see them!

Emmy was immediately drawn to Mermaid Magic Princess Sofia! Emmy loved that Sofia can be the most magical princess, both on land and under the sea! With the Magic Mermaid Princess Sofia Doll, she can recreate Sofia’s ocean adventures right in her own home and tub! In the water, she can wind her tail, press her magical amulet, and Sofia the First will swim across the water. Her tail will magically light up in a variety of rainbow colors as Sofia “sings” a song, right from the show!  sofia mermaid

Emmy spent the rest of the weekend taking Sofia the First everywhere. 

She came with us on quite a few adventures, but I think Emmy loved just sitting and imagining Sofia’s world the most. She spent time styling her hair with the hair brush and removable tiara that came with Sofia the First, and creating her own princess world.  They “talked” about the importance of kindness and loyalty as they created a kingdom of stuffed animals to protect, and they acted out what it all meant. Bath time is extra special now and I can see this being a part of Em’s new evening routine. Quiet chats about all the important things, like friendship, with Sofia the First. sofia the first toy

There are a lot of new toy options for your Sofia the First fan. From dolls, to a palace dollhouse, to a magic musical gown, to an interactive amulet necklace, Sofia takes playtime from ordinary to extraordinary! The toys have amazing new features that are interactive, light up, play music, and more! We spent a good 20 minutes looking through them all. The amulet was really beautiful and Emmy has added it to her birthday list for next year already! I thought that the products were really high quality at a reasonable cost…..a really great value! We found ours at Walmart, but they are now also available at mass retailers such as Target, Amazon, and ToysRUs too!

What is your child’s favorite Sofia the First toy?
