Product Description

Product Description

This Horse and Carriage set is inspired by the upcoming DVD release, "Barbie in The Twelve Dancing Princesses."

Amazon.com

Since going to the ball in an SUV or minivan doesn’t quite have the romantic appeal of a horse-drawn carriage, and a dozen party-bound princesses are likely to squash any regular carriage like the pumpkin of another fairytale, the only viable solution here is…an expandable carriage! Based, of course, on the Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses DVD, this fancy carriage is cleverly designed to expand to enable all 12 giddy princesses to squeeze in on their way to their forbidden nightlife scene (an evil duchess has put the kibosh on fun and dancing). The horse is as finely gussied up as the young ladies, with long, silky blonde mane and tale and elaborate pink reins. The carriage itself is pink, purple, and white; when the base is stretched out and additional seats popped up, the floor changes from white to purple. The plastic used may not last through generations of girls at play, but should hold up for as long as needed. Dolls not included. --Emilie Coulter

The horse tips over constantly, and the reins don't stay on.

The only problem is that I can see it breaking where it expands if my daughters are not too careful!

If this flimsy contraption doesn't stay on, you can't pull the carriage with it.

My 3 year old daughter was very excited about this gift, but quickly lost interest. The version that we have is not the one pictured with the gold-colored reins, but the one in the customer-supplied picture with the pink reins. The horse's harness and reins do not stay on the horse no matter how hard one tries. If this flimsy contraption doesn't stay on, you can't pull the carriage with it. It's really a piece of junk and I was very surprised and disappointed, especially at this price point!

I was surprised and disappointed by how cheaply made this toy is. The gold post-toppers stared falling off just taking it out of the box. The horse tips over constantly, and the reins don't stay on. The carriage part feels very flimsy, and it comes apart easily too. My 3-year-old rarely plays with it.

I bought this carriage for my two daughters (ages 3 and 4) for Christmas. In my opinion, the toy is poorly made and does not fit the manufacturer's recommended age of 36 months to 8 years at all.

The horse does not stand due to close placement of the legs and a raised hoof. The gold tips placed atop various parts of the carriage have all broken off. Had I not known about the target age when I bought the item, I'd assume the carriage was made for a much older child who would either move it very slowly or keep it on display.

Moreover, I would like to know how the manufacturer envisioned all the dolls fitting into the carriage in anything other than an unnaturally stiff, corpselike position. Barbies are not fully articulated and, thus, a ride to the ball looks like a reenactment of scene two from Monty Python's The Holy Grail (Bring out your dead!).

Recommendation: Avoid this item.

I think this set is cool. When it's in the 6 people mode it has a white floor and 4 wheels. When it's in the 12 people mode it has a purple floor and five wheels. I've barely had it for a day and I love it already!:) P.S. Only tell your parents if they allow you to get expensive stuff 'cause this is more than $35.00!:0

My daughter received this for Christmas from Santa and loves it. This is her very first type Barbie vehicle of any type car or horse drawn and she has very few problems with it.

However the bridle does not stay on well and the horse is very unstable. You have to position her standing slightly crooked to the carriage to get her to stand up.

Also a big problem is the triplet dolls get stuck quite easily even though they have special seats just for them. The one long twirling foot on them gets stuck very far and is very difficult to get out. Not good for a 4 year old, quite frustrating. It expands easily, contraction takes a bit more skill, but easy to learn even for the little ones. Over all very nice carriage and my daughter is happy with it.

This carriage was a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be. There have been a few small pieces break off and with having a little one around, it's not too great. However, my four year old that plays with it, knows this and can pick them up. Also, one of the small princesses got her foot stuck in the little hole you put her in. I eventually got her out. Overall, my daughter loves it, and it's not terribly problematic, so I like it.

The carriage is fine but the horse does not stand up very well (my 4 year old gets frustrated)and the bridle is always coming undone. There is plenty of room for all her princesses and she enjoys taking them to the ball in the carriage -so it's just OK.

I was fairly disapppointed in this product. Perhaps it was aggravation after taking 6 Barbies and a vanity out of the packaging... perhaps because this carriage is not very child friendly. My daughter received this as a gift and is 4 years old. She becomes very frustrated because the horse rarely stay upright and the carriage is difficult to convert without adult help. In addition, some of the "Dancing Princesses" don't have bendable legs, making it challenging to get them to all fit in correctly.
