Review: New Sofia the First Toys from JAKKS

Disney Junior is a firm favourite in our house, and the girls both love watching Sofia The First. So they were delighted to get the chance to review some of the new collection of Sofia toys from JAKKS Pacific.

However, we did have lots of fun making the videos so hopefully you will enjoy them!
