Model:DLT61

Our testers liked that these dalls are taller and more muscular than regular dolls and that the boots allow the dolls to stand on their own. Parents also approved of these awesome girl power toys that encourage a strong sense of self and body image. Multiple articulating joints on these dolls make them ultra-posable - a nice feature that allows for more play. Most of our testers hadn't really played with super hero toys before, and one parent commented that being dolls kept play in a comfort zone while encouraging the new superhero storylines. The new cartoon also helps encorage imaginative play.
