What is it
Willow is an 18inches/46cm tall fashion doll and she comes wearing a long-sleeved sequin bomber jacket, blue denim jeans and rose gold and silver trainers. She has fudge coloured hair which comes styled in space buns. Glittery hair bobbles complete the look.
She has pierced ears and comes with two pairs of earrings. She has three more outfits – a pink velboa all-in-one with faux fur trim, a star T-Shirt with tutu skirt and ballerina shoes, and a blue chiffon dress with gold star detail.
Willow comes with a silver Designafriend charm bracelet and is beautifully packaged in a boutique-style gift box with Designafriend wrapping paper.
She also includes a handbag shaped swing ticket with images and information on the full Designafriend collection.

What our experts think
The beautiful doll Willow is a great companion for imaginative role play and helps children to build key social and emotional skills in empathy and communication. Our testers loved the extra clothes and jewellery she came with – they dressed her up for a party and all put on their party outfits too!
Playing with dolls is a great way of developing caring behaviours and children build their confidence by communicating with their new friend. Acting out different scenarios with their doll allows them to make sense of the world around them too. We found Willow went everywhere with our little testers, even sitting at the dinner table together!
