Poppy is well-represented, appearing very similar to the movie character in every way. She sings several signature songs from the movie, and her bracelet is synchronized to the one your child wears. Whenever a song is played, both Poppy’s bracelet and your child’s light up simultaneously, and in the same pattern.
One of the themes in the movie is that “With a song in your heart, you can do anything!” Accordingly, playtime with Poppy promotes positive thinking and self belief, through the many phrases and songs that this cute little troll repeats. When Poppy is activated, she lights up for hug time every hour, on the hour.
Poppy reminds young girls to “Always let your true colors shine”, and this is just one of the many phrases and sayings borrowed from the movie. Poppy stands a full 14 inches tall, and is always ready to take a break for “hug time”. The bracelet that your child wears lights up to the beat of different songs, as mentioned earlier, and Poppy’s hair lights up as well!
There have been a few negative reviews complaining about the price of the doll.
