Have you discovered DesignaFriend?

February 18, 2016

A couple of years ago whilst flicking through the Argos catalogue, Roo came across the Chad Valley DesignaFriend range. Since then the range has appeared on every birthday and Christmas wish list. The DesignaFriend range consists of 18″ dolls, an array of different outfits and accessories to make any young girl happy and keep her occupied for hours.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

Take a look at Roo opening up the DesignaFriend range…

As a parent, I love that the DesignaFriend dolls come with a charm bracelet that when new outfits are purchased a new charm can be added to it making it a collectible item. The dolls stand at 18″ tall which is a good size making them easier to interact with and the accessories aren’t small which means that they don’t get lost after the first play.

Price and Availability

The DesignaFriend range is available from Argos with prices starting at just £6.99

    Oh wow! I cannot believe how much Boo has grown- she’s absolutely beautiful and so confident.
    I love the idea of these! It’s Seren’s birthday soon and I can’t bear the idea of buying her anymore My Little Ponies or Shopkins- this looks ideal, especially if she can save up her treat money for extra accessories.

    I have to admit, I haven’t actually had an Argos catalogue for years now, I generally just search for what I’m looking for online so hadn’t ever seen these.
    Alexa would love them and I have to say, I like the fact they don’t have tiny bits too!
    …off to have a look now I know they exist!

    I love the DesignaFriend dolls – they’re so cute! I much prefer them to AG and the other US 18″ dolls – and I much prefer the price too! 😉 x #toytuesday
