My limited edition Merida doll arrived! She’s fantastic. And yes, the first thing I did was try out the bow and arrow. It actually works - they even added the little notch in the arrow for the bowstring, and it propels the arrow right across a room.

I wasn’t able to take many photos because the light was going so fast and our indoor lighting is too dim, but these were a couple of my favourites (the arrow is bent, it’s from being tied to the cloak. I hadn’t finished untying and unboxing her at this point, which is why I didn’t use one of the straight ones).

I’m currently adding photos to my page about her, I’ll add more as I take them.
