Nancy Doll

Have you met Nancy?

When Little Bean was a small girl, say 4 or 5 years old she played with ‘baby dolls’ but only really to undress them and then leave them somewhere generally with their head trapped in a box or behind a door. I used to think to myself ‘she doesn’t seem very maternal’ or ‘girly’ when it came to dolls. I remembered playing with dolls all the time when I was younger but actually, the older she is getting, the more she has become interested so when I was asked if she would like to review the beautiful new Nancy Dolls from Bandai, I thought it was worth a shot.

Little Bean loves Nancy

Little Bean was very lucky to receive two Nancy dolls; World Adventures – Paris and Nancy Hair Braids. Since she opened their boxes I can testify that they have barely left her side, she even took World Adventures Nancy to school for ‘Golden Time’ on Friday so that she could show her off to her friends and at night when she goes to bed, Little Bean has set up a bed for Hair Braids Nancy to sleep in and World Adventures Nancy sleeps at the end of her own bed – all very cute.

Nancy Doll

Who is Nancy?

The Nancy Doll was first launched by Famosa in 1968 and is the leading Fashion Doll in Spain, now crossing the water to make new friends in the UK. Nancy is a modern girl in her looks, tastes, interests and hobbies. She is a sweet, supportive and pretty girl with an eye for fashion and the most beautiful eyelashes I have ever seen on a doll! She enjoys wearing beautiful clothes in a natural style and going on adventures with her friends and her pets. Standing tall at 42cm, Nancy is a doll that stands out from the crowd – and why not!

World Adventures – Paris

I think that World Adventures Nancy is Little Bean’s favourite, she is the one who goes most places with her and the one who gets to share her bed. She comes complete with a shoulder bag, pet carrier with dog, travel documents, stickers and a secret diary with key. She looks super chic with her Parisian beret and very girly in her pretty pink clothes.

There are four dolls available in the World Adventures range; Paris, Rio, London and New York. I know that Little Bean would also love the London doll so no doubt I will be seeing her added to her Christmas list in the coming months.

RRP £29.99

Hair Braids Nancy

Girls just love to play with hair don’t they! I remember sitting at school during reading time playing with my friends hair or vice versa and Little Bean is the same. She will often have her dolls hair done up in weird and wonderful styles so Hair Braids Nancy will fit right in. Dressed in a cute flippy skirt, t-shirt and pumps, Hair Braids Nancy comes with a cute braider and bows. Little Bean has already been using the braider on a number of her other dolls too, I’m just waiting for her to ask me to do her own hair with it next.

RRP £19.99

    I like the sound of these dolls I use to love my babies when I was little. It’s good to see more different dolls have come out since then too.

    My daughter is still a little young for these dolls but she is very attached to her rag doll and baby dolly, so will probably be ideal in another year.

      Oh I do love a good rag doll 🙂

    They are lovely dolls and I like that they aren’t too ‘overdone’ like certain doll makes are.

      I should have said that this dolls hair doesn’t seem as ‘static’ as others can, it certainly doesn’t seem to tangle as badly as other dolls which is great 🙂

      I don’t think it’s fair that they have such long eyelashes when mine are so short 😉

    Aww my little girl has only really just stopped playing with dolls like this. Spent hours doing their hair! She has loads of the Designer Friends which are very similar to these… but these look a bit better… loving the eyelashes! x

      I think there is a common theme with us Mummies, we ALL love the eyelashes xx
