Earlier this month, Lionsgate released LALALOOPSY: FESTIVAL OF SUGARY SWEETS on DVD. For those who haven’t picked it up yet, it’s airing on Nick Jr. Saturday, March 28th at 2pm ET/PT – so set those DVRs! Now, in addition to the newly-release Lalaloopsy Littles (I have a chance for you to win those – through 3/31 – here), MGA Entertainment released a new doll that’s pretty unique: The Stretchy Hair Doll. As a Lalaloopsy SIP (Sew Important Person) Ambassador, my girls and I went hands-on with this new doll that allows kids to stretch her hair over three times it’s normal length.
While the doll itself has classic Lalaloopsy styling, the hair is a rubbery material that has some sort of sandy substance inside of it. The whole process involves air – turn the cupcake valve to let it out, pump the bow ten times and she’s ready for another stretch.
*Please note: Only one child should stretch at a time. Don’t get silly like we did…. could wind up dangerous!
While the hair is pulled out, it allows for a variety of styling options – like the braids we did. There’s even four hair clips included.
Want to have some Stretchy Hair fun of your own? Help Lalaloopsy Stretch Across the USA! Get a doll (MSRP is $29.99, but third-party marketplace sellers may charge more), and take a picture of your child stretching it – preferably in front of a local landmark. Tag it #StretchAcrossUSA and your state (example: #Illinois) on Instagram, and then hang tight. Once all 50 states are colored-in on the Lala map, one winner will be selected at random to win a $200 prize pack! Read the official rules here.
