NIYAMA AZIAM GIRLZ YOGA DOLL REVIEW (AND YOGA POSE-OFF AGAINST MADE TO MOVE ROSABELLA!)

NIYAMA AZIAM GIRLZ YOGA DOLL REVIEW (AND YOGA POSE-OFF AGAINST MADE TO MOVE ROSABELLA!)


Hi, it’s Dolls, Toys, & Games Gal. I want to share with you a line of dolls that I just discovered called “Aziam Girlz.” It seems to be a line that has an empowering message for young girls and encourages them to be themselves, and of course, I’m all for that. They are called “the world’s first yoga doll” and this is Niyama. Her message is “I am green.” You can see her doing the yoga pose, the Wheel there. Her box says, “I am a girl who wants to see world peace. I am positive. I am real. Don’t try to change me please. Be you to be full. I am perfect AZ.I.AM. Yogini, girl power, raise it up, zip zam! And it looks like she’s got a book called, “Mono Risa’s Coconuts.” So yeah, clearly a very empowering message – love yourself type message, and I am all for that. Back of the box says, “Meet the Aziam Girlz, teenage girls beautiful from the inside out making a positive difference in the world today.” Her name is Niyama. She lives in Manaus, Brazil. She loves hiking and gardening, her favorite pose is the wheel – yep, that’s what she’s doing on the side of her box. Her pet is Mono Risa monkey, favorite food is coconut smoothies, favorite color is green, message is “I am green,” favorite charity is “Save the children.” And each box includes all of these items that I cannot wait to get out and show all of you. Let’s see if she has anything on the other side. It says, “I move just like you.” That’s right, these dolls are supposed to be extremely poseable. I mean if they can do yoga positions, then they are really poseable! All right, let’s go ahead and get her open. First thing I notice is this flyer that says, “Take twenty-five percent off your first Aziam Girlz order.” I’m going to have to take them up on that! And on the back it says, “Let’s do yoga,” and it shows you some poses. So let’s see – we will be seeing if Niyama can do these poses. So Niyama and her accessories slide really easily right out of the box, and it looks like she’ll be easy to cut out as well. And she was! There were no pins in the back of her head, thank goodness! She comes with a hairbrush and a backpack with an – I guess that’s a peace sign/peace symbol on the front and straps in the back (the backpack does not open), a water bottle that says, “Aziam,” with some flower design next to it, a purple camera, a pair of white socks that I will be trying to get on her, and a pair of hiking boots. And then this is, I guess, called a girl power cuff, but for Niyama, it’s her yoga mat. It says, “Aziam” on one side, a bunch of “I am Greens,” and then Niyama on the other side. I did slap this around my wrist ,and it is huge on me, so it’s by gonna be enormous on my little girl. I really like Niyama’s complexion – it reminds me of, like, a coffee colored complexion. I like that. I like the brown eyes and the purple eye shadow. Her hair is brown and it’s pulled into two braids parted down the center, and it has some blond highlights. And I like the natural color lipstick they have her wearing. I also like that there are three pieces to her outfit. So she’s got a shirt inside that says, “I am Green,” and then she’s got a shirt on the outside that’s pink and white gingham. There’s even buttons and it’s tied in the front. And I like these hiking shorts and, okay, so I haven’t put her socks on. I’m looking at the shorts. I also like the suggestion of a belt with a buckle and that the shorts do come off. So you can see that there’s three different pieces there. I know a certain Monster High doll that’s gonna steal that shirt – her name is Venus McFlyTrap! Al lright, this doll is really articulated! Her head doesn’t go back and forth that easily, but it does go side to side (it sure is hard to film this with one hand and try to show you all the points of articulation). She bends at the arm joint, at the elbow joint, and at the wrist joint. She also has this plate in her chest that allows her to kind of move the chest around, like the DC Super Hero Girls. Her waist is also very bendy – she can bend side to side on her waist, she can also bend front and back. At her thigh is also another joint that rotates and bends, and then the most interesting part about these dolls is the knee – the knee cap has two joints. There’s an upper ball joint above the kneecap, and also one below the kneecap. So it makes her able to do a lot of poses. And then, of course, she bends at the ankle. All right, let’s have a posing competition, shall we? Between Niyama and a Made to Move doll, a Made to Move Barbie. So clearly she can do a downward dog. Now you remember this Made to Move Rosabella that I just created not too long ago? Oh, look at you Rosabella, you can also do a downward dog. That’s pretty good! How about the triangle pose? That’s also pretty good! I gotta say: I didn’t expect Rosabella to be able to do that (the Made to Move Rosabella). And they can both do a bow pose, except that Rosabella – the Made to Move Rosabella – is not as stable, so unless you hold her, she kind of falls forward. And let’s see if they can both do the wheel. Yep, Niyama can do the wheel, and surprisingly enough, Made to Move Rosabella can also do the wheel! They can also both do the tree pose – not bad! And let’s see – so I decided to make this position. This is a probably a position I can’t even do in real life myself, but you see how those double jointed knees give her that flexibility. Rosabella can do something similar and – Made to Move Rosabella – she can kind of sit back on her haunches, and she’s also got great flexibility in her arms, as you guys can see. These two are pretty comparable. I gotta say I’m impressed with Made to Move Barbies! All right, there go the white socks, and now that she has her hiking boots on, she can actually stand pretty steadily. I like that too! I like dolls that can stand on their own two feet, especially if they don’t come with doll stands. She’s super cute! I can’t believe that I just discovered this line! I really want more of these dolls! All right, let’s see if her backpack goes on. Okay, so her water bottle hooks nicely – you can just stick her thumb through it – and of course, she’s holding her camera. She’s got her hiking boots on and showing you that her backpack also goes on nicely from behind. She is ready to go into the jungle, take some pictures, and have a little hike! And this doll, I think, is absolutely amazing. Now how much did I pay? I think I paid about $26.95 for her on Amazon. There are other dolls, but they are sold out! So this one is Asana, she is not yet sold out. I might get her next. This next one is Yama the surfer, she is sold out. I can’t find her anywhere. The next doll is Prana, who is a fashion design doll from China. I really want this doll. Unfortunately, she is sold out! Then there’s Dara, who appears to be like a singer/rock star/dancer type. I also want that doll, she’s also sold out. This one’s Pratya, the Zen girl. It looks like she’s doing some meditation there – she’s also sold out! This is Dyana, the study girl. I love this on! I can’t wait to get it – she’s also sold out. I wanted this one, too: her name Sama. She’s the healthy chef. She is, guess what? Sold out. And finally this one is the Dolly Alanna. I think as of right now, she’s still available. So I want to know what you guys think of this new line of dolls. Let me know in the comments below! And can’t wait to hear from you. Thanks for watching. and if you liked this video, please give it a thumbs up! Bye!
