Winx Club is now appearing on Nick Canada.
“The WINX characters represent today’s modern girl. Relying on their strength, smarts and teamwork, they are heroines that girls relate to. Savvy and smart, the WINX are also playful and fashion forward. Positive messaging and girl empowerment it what the Winx Club epitomizes and their guiding principles that appeal to girls are self-expression, friendship, adventure, magic and fashion.
When trouble arises, the Winx Club transforms into beautiful fairies who use their magical powers to fight villains and save the world from evil. Each fairy has a unique power that not only helps define her as an individual, but helps her defeat villains. Also, each fairy has her own personality traits and hobbies, so there is really a character for every girl to relate to.”
The dolls are 11.5″ in height and each Winx doll comes with some fashionable clothes, a set of sparkly wings which can easily be removed, a hair brush and a special Winx card that has a QR code on the back.
The first thing my daughter did was remove all of the clothing from the dolls. She told me it was summer and they are all hot. I can’t argue with that. The clothes and fairy wings are easily interchangeable so there are a lot of different clothing combinations she can make, if she ever decides to put their clothes back on.
As for the special card that comes with each doll. There is a picture on the front and a special QR code on the back that, when scanned, takes you to some exclusive content at Nick.com/Winx. My daughter and I had fun scanning each with my iPhone (there’s an app required for that) and watching the secret video that showed on the screen.
For the recommended age group, my daughter just turned four years old and they are great for her right now. I wouldn’t recommend any younger though. You can also find more information about the world of Winx Club at Toys R Us.
