U Hugs are customisable dolls each with their own character and accessories, although these can easily be mixed and matched between dolls to create your own character. From Flair, a second series of these dolls has been released with some fun themes and designs. We’ve been checking out a couple of them below – take a look!
There are six dolls to choose from in the second season. These are:
- Thorny Flower
- Lazy Hero
- Cheeky Kitten
- Sweety Robot
- Snowy Girl
- Time-Off Elf
The first one we looked at is Cheeky Kitten who was both mine and my daughters favourite. She is really cute and has some fun features such as a pin on tail to put on the back. The unique part of these dolls are the pins, which are basically the accessories, which all have a simple push in pin like action to push into any of the 16 holes that can be found across the doll. The dolls all have a soft rubbery body, there are no sharp bits and these are so easy to change around almost instantly. Being a cat, she has cute accessories like a fish, bird and mouse as well as a cute collar with a bell.
Time-Off Elf is also really cute and perfect for this time of year. As you can see each doll comes with a selection of small accessories, but also their hair, jackets and skirts are all removable and can be swapped around. There is a diamond style pin for the top of the head which has a hole through it so the dolls can be used for hanging up or carrying with the loop included.My daughter enjoys these and has a collection on her bedroom shelf already, she often shows me her new creations where she has mixed and matched them with each other. A huge plus with these dolls is that they are hollow and there is a removable patch on the back of them, that is easily opened and closed with a pin. This means that inside you can store all the little accessories that the doll isn’t currently wearing – a brilliant idea which helps to keep things all together so less chance of them getting lost.Here is one of the creations my daughter made substituting the eyes for some other fun elements!
These are fun toys that both my children have enjoyed playing with. Even my younger boy has fun customising them in various ways and showing me how he got on. For something different, then these are a bit of fun, and if your child likes playing with accessories on dolls then these could be the toy for them. A fun, durable doll with fun features, available from all major toys shops now.
