Is the FurReal Friends StarLily, My Magical Unicorn Worth Buying?
The first thing most people notice about StarLily is her size.
At roughly one and a half feet tall, StarLily is very large when compared to many toy pets of this kind. This is a welcome change.
Toys of this style need to be sturdy and imposing for the child to be able to form a bond. StarLily’s large frame is excellent for this reason. It also means that her features, from her long legs to her sparkling wings and light-up horn, all have a more dramatic impact.
The build quality is exceptional here. StarLily’s fur is soft to the touch, and her limbs and joints all feel secure.
She is also well balanced, which is particularly welcome when she has so many motions to go through. At no point does StarLily become unstable or unsteady, which is impressive for any kind of horse styled motion toy.
The voice and touch responses are appropriately sensitive and include some nice touches that you often don’t see in competitor toys. For example, StarLily comes with a plastic strawberry for eating. After she crunches on her strawberry, the color of the light-up horn will change to signify that she is not hungry.
StarLily is not a cheap toy, but it is difficult to argue she is overpriced. When you compare her to similarly styled toys, you can’t ignore the fact that not only is StarLily far more responsive than most, she is very well built and is strikingly larger than the vast majority of these kinds of toys.
For many young children, and in particular young girls, StarLily will be a treasured pet.
