The heroic adventures of Moana of Motunui inspire children to take on an unfamiliar world with strength and confidence. Whether they are looking to mimic her ocean adventures or pretend to face the heartless Te Fiti, toys can open up their imagination to the animated world. Children can embody Moana’s bravery through a costume, reenact the movie with a set of dolls, or even create their own daring exploits through drawing. Here are some great Moana toys we recommend.
Choosing a Moana Toy That’s Right for You
Keep these things in mind when looking for the perfect Moana toy:
- Age: Plastic dolls can have outfit pieces that are choking hazards for young children. These changeable dolls are best for kids above toddler age as they understand that these pieces are meant for expressing choices on the doll. Soft dolls are appropriate for toddlers, as they don’t feature hard items that can be swallowed or cause harm.
- Price: Dolls with special features like extra outfits, brushable hair, or talking features will be more expensive than the classic doll but provide more interaction between your child and the doll. While figurines may be small and seem overpriced, they are typically sturdy and are more detailed due to their painted design. Playsets with multiple pieces or moving elements will be more costly, so look for toys with quality plastic material and special design details.
- Characters: If your child has a favorite Moana character they adore, opt for a doll replica or costume so that they can roleplay as that figure and recreate the movie’s adventures. Children who enjoyed the movie and all its quirky characters will enjoy full playsets that allow them to give life to all of the Disney characters. Giving these children only one of their beloved characters may lead to them asking for the toy version of each Disney hero.
