    Great Figure, Useless Amiibo

    This figurine, while rather cheap and very good looking, suffers from having little to no usefulness as a Nintendo amiibo, having limited and poor compatibility with the software it's supposed to interact with. In Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, you can build this character a house if you have the amiibo. You can also do it without the amiibo, although how long it takes to do that is completely random. In Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, you can use this character in the main game, and in fact have to. Unfortunately, the unique functionality of the character is limited to flavor text, and there no mini games you can play with just the amiibo. You will probably will not want to play this game, as it is repetitive and requires no actual skill even a little to complete as it doesn't really have a game component. This figurine also unlocks costumes in Super Mario Maker and Mariokart 8 you can unlock either in game or with another figurine anyway. In short, don't buy this figurine unless you want to have a nice looking figure of this character. Otherwise, you will greatly regret the purchase. Here's a short test to see if you want this. Do you know who Mabel is? Do like Mabel as a character? Do you like Animal Crossing enough to collect figures for it? If you answered yes to all of those questions, then go ahead, purchase this. It will satisfy you. Otherwise, proceed with caution.

    Well worth the price as revitalized older game.

    I purchased this for my daughter because Nintendo upgraded her Animal Crossing game into an amiibo version, including adding a camp ground area to the town for special items, and we wanted to see what amiibo's would do in the game. I didn't think Mabel, who runs the dress shop in Animal Crossing, would do much to add to the gameplay but my daughter is happy with the extras she brought into the game with her. Apparently not all amiibo's work the same and the specific Animal Crossing ones she picked work in other amiibo games, where some of others don't, so she brings them to friends to add to their games. Definitely worth the full price but enjoying it more so at the sale price I got at Best Buy.

    I purchased this for my daughter because Nintendo for some unknown reason upgraded her Animal Crossing game into an amiibo version, including adding a camp ground area to the town for special items, and she wanted to see what amiibo's would do in the game. I still don't exactly know what part Mabel plays in the game as my daughter hasn't put her 3DS down since she got her but she has arranged this with others on her bedroom shelf as if they were hanging out by the town tree. Definitely worth the price, even more so at the sale price I got these at Best Buy.

    Animal Crossing Amiibo

    While many people don't like the amiibo for animal crossing, I agree that the purpose of the amiibo is not yet great on many games, but even as it is right now I love the characters and how adorable they are. By this time the update for Animal Crossing New Leaf Welcome Amiibo is already available so it gives now more purpose than just one or two games, and the functionality added in this game is great, gives you something extra to use your loved amiibo characters.

    My local Best Buy was clearing this Amiibo set out for less than a dollar. I could not turn these down at that price. My daughter uses them for her Animal Crossing games on the 3DS but they can also be used with the Wii U Animal Crossing game as well. I am not sure I could recommend this at full price but if you can find it at the price I did and you like Amiibo/Animal Crossing I highly encourage you to pick this up.

    Worth Buying at The Right Price

    This amiibo works well in Animal Crossing, but doesn't bring a huge value. The character shows up in your campground where you can buy furniture from him/her. You are only able to use one a day. If you are playing Zelda on the Switch, you can use this character to drop additional items in that game too, which consist of items you would otherwise have to hunt for forage. I use this more in Zelda than in Animal Crossing.

    I have never played an Animal Crossing game. That being said, this Mabel amiibo was cute and extremely cheap when I bought it. Mabel makes a nice friend for my Sonic amiibo, seeing that they're both hedgehogs. Other than that, I can't recommend this or any of the Animal Crossing amiibo to friends since their use is very limited and you'll likely only buy one character.

    We buy amiibos mainly to collect, rather than to actually use on games. That said, we're becoming more and more impressed with amiibo quality as of late. Mabel is no exception. They did a fantastic job with her spikes, and making any seams nearly invisible. The light texture on her apron is a really nice touch. Can't wait for the next set of Animal Crossing amiibo!

    I honestly can't remember who Mabel is though I only played the first couple Animal Crossing games. As an Amiibo there's no reason to buy this character other than for collecting. As a generic toy it's cute and has a decent paint job. On clearance is was cheaper than any other toy of similar size but not worth it at full price.

    Mabel amiibo

    The Mabel amiibo is great as a figure but is almost useless for features. The only notable things it unlocks is a costume for Super Mario Maker and a character to use for Animal Crossing amiibo festival. (At the time of this review.) I would only suggest you buy this figure if you like Animal Crossing or you need it for your amiibo collection.

    Well-made, great paint job. Worth collecting, as Nintendo's releasing all of the worker-type characters from the AC universe it seems. Use her to unlock her in Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival or to unlock things in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for Nintendo 3DS. Other games may support her in the future, too.

    Amiibo for days

    These figures are a nice addition to you Amiibo collection if you are collecting them purely for the figure and not fore functionality. They don't have much of that, and Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival for Wii U is terrible. Not nearly as nice as the Super Smash Brothers figures, but not nearly as bad as the Super Mario Brothers.

    Cute Amiibo (Not many games supported)

    The games that support the Animal Crossing line of amiibo are slim in regard to them functioning as actual Animal Crossing amiibo. Other games merely provide generic items when the Animal Crossing amiibo are used with them (such as Hyrule Warriors). Otherwise, they are definitely cute and a must have for any Nintendo amiibo fan.

    Maybe she's born with it. Maybe it's Mabel-ine.

    I'm not a huge Animal Crossing fan, but I still enjoy the series. I thought it was somewhat random that Mabel of all characters got an amiibo, but I'm glad. Her amiibo looks so great and is really well made. I think anybody who enjoys Animal Crossing or just nice looking amiibo will enjoy making Mabel a part of their collection.

    Like just about every amiibo, the sculpt and paint job is a perfect real life representation of the virtual character. Mabel brings a few nifty items to the campground in ACNL. However, unless your a big fan of this character or a completionist, I recommend waiting on her unless she goes on sale.

    Sanic Hegehog, also known as Sanic The Hotdog, is an image of a poorly drawn cartoon of Sega's mascot, Sonic the Hedgehog . The meme is also used with broken English, similar to Dolan and Dankey Kang. He is Taels' BFF.

    I admit, I give 5 stars solely because I am an avid Amiibo collector who also loves animal crossing. A side note would be that functionally, this is not a very useful product. The wiiu game it is compatible with is not worth the time or money to play it, so I would really only recommend this to collectors.

    The Amiibo is great. I anticipate being able to use it with Animal Crossing for the Switch, whenever that arrives. What was not great was the Amiibo packaging was bent and damaged. Luckily I wasn't just keeping it as a collectible or I'd have been returning it.

    This amiibo doesn't function with as many games as others--indeed, the Animal Crossing amiibo series is newer and therefore only works with a few newer games, with Animal Crossing amiibo festival being the primary one. Still, it's a nice little figurine of Mabel, so if you like her you'll like this.

    These figures are a bit on the small size, but they make up for it in quality construction and overall cute factor. Now that you can use them in a few different games they're also much more worth it as a purchase. If you like Animal Crossing, this is a good addition to your collection.
