We think the Sofia The First Talking Magical Amulet is adorable! Not only does the Amulet necklace look just like the one Disney Junior character Sofia wears in “Sofia The First,” but her voice also comes out of the necklace when you push a button.
PLUS if you use the magical cards that come with the necklace you can hear Sofia give you different advice about being royal and helping others. All you have to do is slide the card into the amulet and Sofia will give you some advice fit for a princess!
Here’s a description of the fun toy:
Little girls can learn to be a princess with the Talking Magical Amulet, a beautiful and magical necklace that is just like Sofia’s. The interactive Talking Magical Amulet features the voice of Sofia and brings her world to life by teaching little girls valuable princess lessons about kindness, sharing, manners and more. The Talking Magical Amulet comes with 12 collectible cards, each featuring a different lesson from Sofia, along with a carrying case. Batteries included. Ages 3+.
This is one of the cutest Disney toys we have seen recently! We want to know what YOU think of the Sofia The First Talking Magical Amulet so be sure to Tweet us @Disney_Dreaming if YOU check the toy out!
