My 2 1/2 year old doesn't get enough of this toy. He loves to change to outfits and will stay entertained for anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes playing (a long time for this age group). Joey is a great addition so that little boys can play with dress up dolls without having to use girl figures, and he also enjoys the different costumes and pretends with us each character. For the price it is great. The only thing is that if he drools on it, the paper becomes soggy so be careful if your child is a drooler.

Pros: Melissa and Doug toys are great. My 3 year old son likes this toy. It has different professions (e.g., fire fighter, police officer) and fantasy roles (e.g., super hero, knight). It also is a type of puzzle because they match the outfits and make the pieces fit together. Adults can also enjoy it. It reminds me of my old paper dolls, but better because it's magnetic.

Cons: The box is awkwardly designed and all of the pieces don't fit in easily. My son has already misplaced some of the pieces. It would be better if the box was enclosed (e.g., had a lid) and all the pieces fit easily inside.

I picked this up on a whim when watching my 3 year old nephew the other day. We were taking him to a 'nicer' steak restaurant, and I wanted to make sure we had something to keep him occupied while waiting for the food.
It was a HUGE hit! The character and pieces were well sized for table-top play. He was almost sad to have to put it away when the food arrived! After dinner, he immediately started asking if he could play with it in the car on the ride home.
Only downside- I wish the tray was more of a box that closed so that you don't have to worry about loosing pieces. A lid of some sort would make it perfect for outings to restaurants, etc.

I love wooden toys, generally like Melissa & Doug, and I'm all about encouraging creative play. But this toy falls flat. Since the pieces are not terribly interchangeable it stifles creativity, as it's difficult to put all tops with all bottoms, etc. It's more like a really lame puzzle. My son played with it once or twice, then just didn't see the point. It's not like he's dressing a doll that he can then go off and play with or something. You dress it, you look at it, you move on. Yawn.

Plus, the lack of a cover or lid to the box is a huge negative. The little pieces are constantly getting separated from the rest, making this an irritating toy to keep clean. Further, I don't know how but my son managed to peel off the face from the guy so now it's just a faceless blah with several of the pieces who knows where.

This is definitely not a toy that is worth it to me to deal with, especially since it fails at inspiring true creativity. I just chucked what was left of it in the trash (after less than a year of ownership).

My son loves this toy. The clothes stay on very well and he likes that it isn't a girl toy. Super happy with this toy. So happy, I am buying another one for my nephew.

New twist to paper dolls.
Love it is a guy with lots of choices of clothing.
Also found his clothes work on our girl magnetic dolls so no gender restrictions on career choices. LOVE THAT!!!

I am a preschool itinerant teacher and all the boys and girls love
the many outfits they can place on Joey. It is great because
the children can relate to the different characters, policeman,
fireman etc. Very educational. (How about making a girl and
an African/American one too with all the career outfits.)

I like this toy; I use it for work with preschoolers (speech therapy). Some kids like it but not all. It has a good selection of different "clothes" and appears to be very solidly constructed. I only wish the box had some type of lid; I thought it would have one of those slide-in plastic lids but it does not. I have to put it (and the girl set I got at the same time) in a separate box for transport.

I recently purchased these for my preschool classroom. The children and their parents have fun playing with them. Both boys and girls love dressing the dolls.

Melissa & Doug Joey Magnetic Dress-Up My three year old grandson loves dolls. His cousin has Maggie and he loves to play with her. So-- I bought him Doug. He spends hours with this and we have to take it with us in the car. It has held up very well as he has it with him all the time. It goes to be.

Very durable and great colors.
