Once you take scissors to the 1/2 a million clear rubber bands that hold this doll and dogs to the cardboard packaging, your frustration is only beginning. Putting the pool together is a pain in the butt! However, it was all worth it to see my daughter enjoying the aftermath when it was finally assembled.

They don't make Barbies like they used to, though. I have a Barbie doll from the 1980's that's made much more durably than this one!

This is a toy that my 4 year old daughter asked for this Christmas. I picked it up at the store, and the price was just "fair." It should have been a bit cheaper considering the product issues, and it doesn't seem like it is made very well.

When I got the toy, I thought the pool would be a blow up pool. A blow up pool seems more practical than what they have put together, and it would have been more durable.

OUT OF THE BOX: The Barbie is great, she has movable joints (more than just a regular Barbie). Dogs are adorable, and my daughter loved those. One is plastic while the other is "squishy." The Barbie and dogs would make great bath toys. The plastic larger dog also swims when you move it's tail. (No batteries required for this product). The pool at first looks like it will be easy to put together.

PUTTING IT TOGETHER: The instructions for assembling the pool were difficult, and what you have to do to put it together is even more difficult. You basically put the top rim of the pool "Inside the plastic," and have to try and click the pieces together in a not so easy way. In my opinion, the rim of the pool should have been attached already. When I saw that the pool had only three "flimsy" legs to hold it up, that worried me. I knew right away it would not be stable, because the legs themselves are not stable to begin with. And..... A pool needs SOMETHING to hold it up.

WATER IN THE POOL: When putting the water in the pool, the plastic is so flimsy that I thought for sure it was going to break from the weight of the water. Luckily, it did not break while putting the water in it.

I was surprised at all that came with the set. The barbie has bendable joints which are great and has a switch in back to move her arms and throw the ball. The big dog actually swims (pool has to be pretty full for it to swim right), and one of the little dogs squirts. The diving board lets you push and make the dogs dive. The other little dog, ball, and float all have magnets in them and the dogs nose does also to push them around, this was a fun surprise for my daughters. It is easy set up/take down and the pool seems to be a durable material. Both my 5 year old and my 3 year old daughters love playing with it. as to be expected things get pretty wet playing with it, the dog and barbie retain water when they get pulled out.

My daughter wanted this toy very badly for her 8th birthday. She was excited when she got it and couldn't wait to get it out of the box. That is downfall number one. I understand the need to prevent theft but it took about 15 minutes just to get it out of the packaging. Once it was out of the packaging it took another 15-20 minutes to get the pool assembled. If this pool isn't filled with water it has a tendency to fall apart making it difficult to move without having to reassemble here or there. Once filled with water, if you keep it in one spot, it holds up pretty well. I kept wondering why they used pieces of pink plastic that you had to methodically slide through a series of plastic loops and then hook together instead of just using a top ring that you fill with air (sort of like the common "pop up" pools people use). After all was said and done, my daughter played with this toy for a total of 4 hours. Then she took it apart and had more fun "making things" with the plastic pieces. When I asked her if she wanted me to put it back together so she could fill the pool up and play she declined. She hasn't asked for it to be put together again since.

My 5 yr old daughter has a passion for anything dog related so of course this toy was at the top of her Christmas list and all she could talk about. I'd read reviews, most of which were not good, and just couldn't make myself buy it for what the price tag said. However she still got it from her godfather and so we set it up, luckily by the kitchen sink. Not long into playing with it, it got bumped as she was playing and one of the support legs came out and all the water dumped out. She was pretty disappointed. However, I then took some clear packaging tape and securely taped over each support leg of the pool, taping it to the side of the pool (so we can't collapse it now) and we haven't had an issue since, the legs can't go anywhere so no more spills. Since our tape fix it's a great toy now, that's why I gave it the 4 stars--it is easily fixable. We haven't had any other issues, diving board works great, in fact it's hard to take apart (since some people say theirs falls apart when played with). I guess the one thing that could now be sturdier is the basketball hoop, it does fall off kind of easily, but my daughter doesn't play with that part really anyway.
