I think someone said you attach her to her base and her crown lights up. I have Loop without her base so.

Yes, the stand itself has a button and she lights up that way when you "plug" her in or whatever... The shoe it goes into connects with [something something technical] in the stand. I had her as a kid and I don't think he shoes were removable either.

Glitter Glide was definitely designed better for this gimmick :P

The Ice Skaters are such pretty girls. I certainly wouldn't mind having Glide to go with Loop.

I think the front shoes come off, the back ones don't as they're part of the connect to the base.

I feel like there's a button on the base to activate or something...or am I mixing that up with Blossomforth? She definitely has a button on her base to play music. Hrm...

Yup, there's a heart shaped button on it.

I think there were two bases? One made her light up, the other, bigger base held Loop’s base and make it spin or something to that effect.

Yep! My secondhand Glitter Glide came without her front shoes:

I was gonna say, she clearly has strong feelings about it xD.

Yeah, there's definitely the smaller base into which the skate slips and then a bigger one. And I think this has wheels? And you can roll it along a table and they spin? Is that right? It's a long time since 2003 and mine are now away somewhere in a box...

Yes, she has two bases, a spinning one and a battery operated one :) I made a short video showing what they do https://youtu.be/zREyq9UV9xk and please note I have two glitter glide bases, I’m not sure if I have loop de la’s big base (should be pink on top like the mib picture), but they all do the same thing!

If you get the bases and find that they’re not lighting up, try pushing the back of the foot that goes in the base right down, it needs to be below the level of the groove else it has trouble working!

This thread was a good reminder to check mine, one had only one battery with some rather corroded contacts in the other space, thankfully I got it cleared up and batteries replaced! I’m guessing they have wires running from their shoe to their crown, wouldn’t want to rehair these two!
