One Direction Doll: A Review

by fanfreluche

Review of the One Direction doll collector's set. This Christmas many wish list will contain a One Direction doll (or all of them). Make sure to read my review!

The British-Irish boy band One Direction has become a world wide sensation. The band consists of five members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. All of the five singers have their own fans, but the most attention is given to them as a group. Because they are young their appeal to teenage girls is understandable. Teenage girls always seem to think they are the cutest guys on any stage.

All five of the band members have had a collectible One Direction doll released this year. Each One Direction doll resemble each of the singers. It is hoped that many young fans as well as doll collectors, will be interested in a piece of One Direction memorabilia. The big question is will the dyed-in-the-wool One Direction fan find these collectible dolls worth buying.

I can't believe it. One Direction Singing dolls? And not, absolutely not a single little review about them? I search everywhere, tried to find more info about them but NADA. 

This 1D Singing Doll - Niall (probably the first of the new line) is available at Toys R Us on pre-order. Ship date is October 20th.

How can such a new hot toy not make the news? Is this an error from Toy's R' Us? Maybe it's not even suppose to be announced yet..

Exciting no?

Ok, the page has been removed as of October 11 (glad I took a screenshot, see below). The plot thickens. So is there going to be a new One Direction Doll release?

Now To The Question, Are The One Direction Collector Dolls Worth The Price?

Short answer: yes

When you first look at a One Direction doll, you will be amazed by the realism. Each doll looks just like the One Direction singer it was modeled after, the likeness is uncanny. The fine craftsmanship perfectly captures each singer’s facial features. Any serious fan will instantly recognize their favorite member.

Beside the quirky facial expressions and of course the boy band smirk, these collectable dolls are outfitted perfectly. Each figure is outfitted with the same wardrobe they wear when performing. They have a lifelike appearance due to the perfect detail of their clothing. Shoes, trousers, jackets, and shirts have been carefully recreated.

The uniqueness of each One Direction doll can be seen in the amount of detail that has gone into the making of the individual singer’s image. It is obvious that a great deal of time and effort has gone into making each figure as realistic as possible. Even the hairstyles of each singer, have been carefully molded to be accurate, this is a nice finishing touch.

The scale of these dolls is what allows them to look so good. Because they are 12” figures, there is plenty of room provided to create detailed facial features, giving them extra character. This also allows for the wardrobe to be tailored to each of the One Direction doll. Because they are so well made the appeal is not only to fans but to the serious collectors as well.  


The lack of accessories beyond clothing is the only real drawback to these figures. Depending on your budget price may also be a consideration. The cost of a single figure should not strain your funds, however if you or your child would like to have all five figures in the band the cost can add up quickly.

As you can see there is a lot to praise and very little to criticize about the One Direction collector dolls. They make a wonderful gift to any One Direction fan or collector. So feel confident in purchasing one, make sure however that you get the correct member of the band when giving a One Direction doll as a gift, since everyone has their own favorite band member.
