Bratz Remix Cloe Doll Review

It has to be more than 10 years ago since I last saw a Bratz doll.

My eldest was obsessed with them and spent hours in her room swapping clothes, doing their hair and setting up little scenarios.

When I was asked to review the newly launched Bratz Remix doll I was hoping that number three was going to love them just as much as her sister had all those years ago.

She turned ten earlier in the year and had cleared out most of her dolls so I wasn’t sure how she was going to react when the package arrived.

The opening was unfortunately taken out of her hands as the two little devils got theirs hands on the post and ripped it open before she got a chance.

At least this shows they are appealing to boys too!

Once she got her hands on Cloe she was immediately taken with the cool clothes and even said she would love the cropped top in her own size!

She loved the funky oversized headphones that really appealed to her as she is a huge music lover and aspiring singer.

Cloe’s hair was really easy to style with the cute heart shaped brush which allowed number four to spent a long time trying out new hairstyles.

The only issue we really found was that the movable limbs moved well but she was not that easy to stand upright and took a fair bit of balancing.

All in all number three was really pleased with her doll and can’t wait to add some friends to start a new collection.

With the music theme of the doll we had a little chat about how music makes you feel and she let me know a few of her favs:

What song makes you happy? 

Hair by Little Mix

What song makes you feel confident?

Impossible by James Arthur

What song makes you want to dance?

New Soul by Jay Z

What song makes you want to sing?

Diamonds by Rihanna

What song reminds you of your favourite people?

Always Be Together by Little Mix

Music plays such an important role in people’s lives and I was so surprised that she could relate songs to feelings at such a young age.

We had such a good time trying out the doll which lead to a great Mum and daughter chat about music and how it makes you feel.

The dolls are really on trend which will appeal to a wide range of ages, comes with super cool accessories and would make a great gift for any little music loving fashionista like mine!
* We were given this doll for the purpose of this review and they are all our own honest opinions.

Hours Of Fun With A Cardboard Box Car


As we all know cardboard boxes are a massive source of fun for kids.

We have all bought that super expensive, much asked for toy for it to be thrown into the corner in favour of the massive cardboard box!

After a boring trip to the supermarket today to purchase a new microwave we came home and removed it from its oversized box much to the delight of number four.

We had a few hours before the school run so I decided to change the box into a car with the help of a couple of things we had knocking around.  

 If you fancy giving this a try you will need: 

  • A large box
  • Five paper plates 
  • A plastic milk carton lid
  • Coloured paper to cover box
  • Four cupcake cases

First I pushed the flaps of the box inside leaving one end slanted to create a dashboard.

I then stuck a paper plate to the flap with the milk carton lid stuck to the centre to make a steering wheel with a horn.

To the side of the steering wheel I cut a small hole that he could put in a spare key I found.


Next I covered the outside with some red paper and then added the paper plate wheels.

Lastly I made a number plate on a piece of paper for either end and added the cupcake cases to make some lights.



For a boy that has a massively small concentration span this kept him occupied for hours.

He was pretending to drive his friends around, watched a bit of TV and then finally crashed out in it!  Well worth the small amount of time it took me to make.
