My daughter is a huge Lalaloopsy fan. This Lalaloopsy Stretchy Hair doll, Whirly Stretchy Locks, is the newest doll to the collection!! She is the same size as the other Lalaloopsy dolls, but her stretchy hair is what sets her apart from the rest. Your child will have hours of fun with her, and there is also an awesome Instagram contest you can enter using your Stretchy Hair doll (see details at the end of this post)!!
The Lalaloopsy Stretchy Hair doll's squishy hair stretches up to 3 times longer, and you can style it in all kinds of quirky hairstyles. Each doll comes with removable shoes and skirt, and 4 hair clips.
You can puchase the Lalaloopsy Stretchy Hair doll directly from Lalaloopsy, or in stores at Walmart, Target, Kmart, Toys R Us, and on Amazon.
This is how the doll looks directly out of the box. The four rubbery strands of her hair are soft and squishy. You can style and stretch her hair like this, but they won't really hold a shape. Keep hair strands away from sharp objects to avoid possible damage.
To make the hair hold a shape and make it easier to create funky hairstyles, turn the white frosting cap on the top of her head clockwise as tight as it will go. Then, pump the yellow "sweet" bow up & down at least 10 times to remove the air from the hair strands.
Now, you get to s-t-r-e-t-c-h her hair!! For best results, hold the strand near her head and stretch it with the other hand at one arm's length only.
After stretching the pink strand, you can see the hair length difference between it and the orange strand. The hair is much longer, and the pink strand can be molded better than the orange.
Once all four strands have been stretched, you can create lots of different hairstyles!! We twisted, rolled, and braided her hair into all kinds of crazy styles. My daughter's favorite was this twisted braid with all four hair clips.
After playing, remove the hair clips and return the hair to normal length by turning the white frosting cap counterclockwise. The hair bounces right back like magic!! To keep your doll's hair looking fabulous, store doll flat (face down) with hair strands untangled with white frosting cap open.
