This a review on the Toys R Us Exclusive DJ Pon-3 with her convertible. The doll and car can be bought separately. I ended up getting 2 of these exclusives so I could open one up just for you guys.
If you are fan of Vinyl Scratch like me you'll probably love this set as a collectible to keep in the box because let's face it, this is adorable even if we would have preferred her with a huge DJ set.
The box is pretty cute with a little background while DJ is driving upward on a road. Not a fan of pictures of random children on my boxes but I suppose that's supposed to be your glimpse at the free shades that are her cars windshield, but I do wish they hadn't added it to the front of the box, it ruins it as a display option for me.
On to the unboxing, I was so pleased when I began opening DJ and her convertible when I noticed they had done the most simple and easy packaging. It was seriously in place with 1 or 2 thick cord things, and a couple clear rubber bands holding DJ in place. just a couple snips and this car was ready to roll.
Look at the adorable art on the back! Once you open a side to the main box you can just slip out the backdrop piece that the car is attached to and at the bottom you can see the 2 spots to cut but you can easily cut them from the top too. The windshield is a pair of shades meant for younger children with smaller heads. Trust me I tried to wear them. -------------------------------->
When I got this set I hadn't yet seen the DJ doll on it's own person so I wasn't sure how she was going to look. Like most of the Equestria Girl dolls she isn't ball jointed at all but she can obviously sit in the car and her shoulder joints move. In the slide show above you can see how her hands don't naturally set on the wheel you have to squeeze them into the wheel to make it look like she's actually driving which is a big silly but for the price it was sort of "alright then"
At first I thought her would have an opening trunk or something but it doesn't. you can fit 2 girls into the car and push it around and that's it, so the retail price of 29.99 is a bit high in my opinion since all you are really getting is a hollow light weight plastic car. I much would rather have had a more expensive remote control car or at least had her car hook up to an ipod with a cooler looking dj set in the back that lit up or had spinning things so she could be a real rockin DJ, but you know I don't get to make these toys so they'll never get to be as cool as I want ahaha.
That aside I love the design of the car a lot, it's similar to my pinkie pie pony RC car that is remote controlled that I ADORE. just in Vinyl Scratch colors. I love both looks. Though the Purple Pony on the hood of this one is super epic compared to the yellow on Pinkie's car. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - --------->

Just some extra perks to this purchase. Ever After High dolls, Monster High dolls, and other Equestrial Girls dolls, pretty much all fit into this vehicle. Some characters may have shoes that are big like my Trixie doll, so I just removed them so she'd fit in easier.
Also if you aren't a kid, give your DJ shades to a Lalaloopsy doll! It fits like magic!
Basically this EG convertible is the jam, I make it the centerpiece to my dolls having a chill time. They all look like cool kids, don't you think?
And that concludes this review as a positive one. I highly recommend this to both children and collectors. I just love doll vehicles!
