One of the sweetest toys of the year is Hasbro’s Dance Code Belle. Since previewing it at Toy Fair earlier this year it has been on my list of must-haves!
Whether your kids are huge fans of Beauty and The Beast, or if they just love to dance, Belle combines both of these in the most incredible way.
Belle performs 10 dances when kids touch of her necklace. She will also say over 100 phrases and plays 7 songs. When the music plays when she dances and guides kids with her phrases.
As you cycle through her performances she will charm you with her beautiful moves and interactive commentary. Press her pendant twice and she also teaches kids how to do a few routines.
Jointed arms allow her the ability to have the perfect ballroom frame, while her gorgeous yellow gown makes her the Belle of the ball. Her hair is pretty rolled on each side and connected at the back with tiny elastics.
The doll itself sits on a base that allows her to go up and down just like she would if she were on her tippy toes. That same base has a track and wheels so she can be manoeuvered in all directions.
More features can be unlocked when kids connect Belle to the app.
Here they can create dance routines three different ways:
- Block coding – Where kids move blocks around to choreograph a dance she can perform
- Connect the dots – Where kids create dance patterns for Belle to perform
- Freestyle mode – Where they draw any shape or pattern they like and she can perform
As a bonus feature – she turns off after 5 minutes of inactivity!
With her charm and grace, Belle is one of our tops picks for the holidays and beyond.
*Thank you to Hasbro for sending Dance Code Belle for review! We absolutely adore her.*
