Luna Petunia is a colourful, fantastical Netflix original kids’ show.
If you’ve never had the pleasure, Luna (a real little girl) goes through a petunia in her bedroom wall and ends up in a colourful cartoon land called Amazia where her toys come alive and help her solve seemingly impossible problems. It is inspired by Cirque du Soleil (who I’ve seen perform) and is therefore as bright and wacky as you’d expect.
Having tried almost every show on Netflix, Luna Petunia is one that my daughter often asks to watch; the bright colours and butterflies appeal a lot. When we were asked to review a Talking Luna Petunia Doll from Funrise toys I thought she would probably love it.
The Talking Luna Petunia Doll looks just like she does in the cartoon with bright blue, sparkly hair which definitely sets her apart from the other dolls.
If you press on her necklace, she speaks – she says eleven phrases from the TV show at random (yes I counted) when you press on her necklace (or more accurately the button underneath her necklace) and the sounds come out of a speaker on her belly.
It says on the description that she has brushable hair but the way it’s tied up and packaged does not make this easy. In fact this hair came out just taking the band out so we quickly put it up again.
I’ve tried taking her hair down and brushing, but I really would not advise it!
All in all she’s fun, and I really like how colourful and cartoon-like she is; it appeals to my daughter a lot. I am slightly disappointed with the hair as this is what my daughter likes to play with most when she plays with dolls. I like the fact that the phrases are played at random rather than scrolling through each one in a predictable sequence.
We were given the Talking Luna Petunia Doll by Funrise Toys free for the purposes of review but all words and opinions are mine.
You can buy the Luna Petunia Talking Doll for £24.99 exclusively from Smyths Toys. During October half term there will be visits from Luna Petunia in Smyths Stores; keep an eye on their Twitter and Facebook pages for info.
