This is a great toy, however, as another reader states, Melissa & Doug failed terribly in the container, and it IS important!!!
There are so many little pieces that, you want to keep them in a container you can close, otherwise it is a real pain, trust me.
I found a much better version of this toy, made by Circo (I believe this is a Target brand), the doll is nicer, there are more pieces of clothing AND the box has a sliding lid, BRILLIANT. I actually bought it too and looove it, as for the Melissa & Doug one, I have to find another box to put all the pieces together... not very smart.
With kids, you want to keep things organized and mess-free as much as posible, so GO with the Target brand, it is just as good quality, better design and cheaper!!!

My daughter received this for her 3rd birthday, and she loved it... she put different outfits on her and she played with it forever... what I like is that it comes in its own case so that all of the pieces stay together...

I bought this for a 3 year old for her birthday and she has been playing with it daily for the past few months! She loves to invent different costumes and sings while playing and dances around with the doll. My daughter has it and plays with it daily for the past couple of years! (she is 5 now).
My daughter loves paperdolls, but they don't last. This toy will last a long time!

This is a fun toy, my daughter loves to mix and match the clothes. But the box has no lid on it, which means endless searching for the lost ballerina shoe or the missing shirt. I've seen other magnetic dress up sets that have lids, and I would suggest getting one of those instead!

We got this for our not-quite-three-year old daughter last week. She loves playing with it. Even when she's not putting different outfits on the doll she'll play with it, talking to her "pretty 'rina". I would definately tell someone to buy this without any hesitation, it's a great gift for a child.

This toy is great, but I do wish the box had a lid for easier storage. I have had this over a year, and my kids haven't lost any pieces, but a lid would still be preferred. Other than that, it is a great, fun, and durable toy. My kids really love to put different outfits together.

My daughter (4 yrs) has 3 of these little magnetic dolls and she loves them. They are easy to play with and come with many different clothing options. I just wish there was a permanent cover to go over the box to hold all the pieces in place - I've resorted to putting it all in a shoebox to keep little pieces from being lost.

This magnetic doll with clothes and accessories was the perfect toy for playing on the go, at a park or in the car. The pieces are big enough so you won't be searching all over for the or accidentally suck them up with your vacuum. The colors are pretty and bright. A lovely toy to give as a gift as well.

This was a gift from my mom to my 2 year old daughter. She loves to dress her "Rina" (toddlerise for "Ballerina") over and over again. I rated it as 4 stars for educational, because we have talked about the doll missing shoes, or a skirt, or a shirt. We have been using it as a getting dressed teaching tool, and as she gets a bit older, I can see it as a coordinating clothing teaching tool. It is simple enough to set up (the doll has a stand to make it stand up on it's own) that she does it all on her own. There are some comments on the container not having a lid, and yes, that would be a nice feature to add to it. However, we haven't had any issues with it so far. Granted, we only have had it for about a week but still. My 2 year old has no problems carrying the box in such a way that the pieces stay in the box. if it became a problem ... they make this really nifty thing, called a ziploc baggy. ;)

I purchased Melissa & Doug's Nina Ballerina as a Christmas gift for my 3-year old granddaughter, who loves dressing up as a ballet dancer. She was thrilled with this toy. Its large scale and magnetic grip make it easy for 3 year old fingers to mix and match outfits, while the wood construction can withstand the sometimes vigorous plays she invents! My granddaughter can identify with the child-like face and figure of this dress-up doll, unlike some similar products that are on the market. This toy is a winner for any little girl!
