|Left to Right: Sage Starling, Libby Starling and Scarlet Starling|
The 3 of the 5 Star Darlings - Sage (the lead guitarist), Libby (the positively radiant keytarist) and Scarlet (the rebellious drummer), arrived our home in a gorgeously wrapped box, and in my favourite colours too! There is also Leona and Vega in the more summery colours, who couldn't join us this time, but are equally charming:

Apparently Star Darlings are "a Disney publishing book franchise about an extraordinary group of 12 teenage girls from the all girls' school Starling Academy, who have been chosen to go to Earth and grant 12 very special wishes in order to save Starland from an unknown evil force." The story sounds very exciting, and we'd love to read it! The TV animation is also showing on Disney channel.
At first I couldn't quite understand why the Star Darlings' eyes were so mesmerising. Even yesterday when I reviewed the Rapunzel doll, which also has really stunning eyes, I couldn't quite pinpoint what it is about these dolls that make them so special.
And then I remembered that dolls' eyes are usually painted on, but these JAKKS Pacific's ones aren't. So that's why JAKKS Pacific's Royal Reflection (TM) eyes are so special and make these dolls so notably different than others! Look at how gorgeous the Star Darlings are, especially under the sun light!
The Star Darlings also have shimmery skin, giving them a magical feel. They are wish granters after all!
Although not from Earth, the Star Darlings are very fashionable too. What I like about their outfits is that they aren't inappropriate like those on some other dolls. The Star Darlings are suitable for 4 years +, and I as a parent would like to keep the kids' innocence for a bit longer. The Star Darlings dresses sensibly while being highly fashionable, and most of their outfit will look perfect on young girls. I especially love Sage Starling's purple boots for myself!
They have a very positive image, which makes me like them even more! Abby really likes Scarlet, because she's the rebellious one (ha!), and I love Libby because she attracts me the most. But then I also like Sage because of her colours, and boots!
The 11-inch tall Star Darling dolls are fully poseable, so children can act out their favourite scenes, or even their own scenes, more freely. Each Star Darling also come with their own musical instrument. They are RRP £19.99, suitable for 4+ and are available now in all good toy stores.
I also have a Sage, Scarlet and Libby to giveaway to 3 of you on my Christmas Gift Guide Giveaway, which will be released soon, so keep your eyes peeled if you'd like to win one!
