Great if you Don't Like Quality Toys
on March 5, 2015
My daughter just turned 7 and received some money for her birthday from her grandparents. She is at the age where she likes to buy toys so that she can act out scenes from her favorite television shows and movies. She just recently started watching Powerpuff Girls, which I don't understand why anyone would want to watch, and asked if I could find her some Powerpuff Girl toys - don't all syndicated shows and movies come complete with an expansive set of toys? So, I turned to Amazon - they have it all and we are Prime Members, so shipping is always free. There was not a huge selection of Powerpuff Girls toys - and it seemed that much of what we had to choose from were super expensive for what the toy was. I do not want to pay $70 - $100 for Powerpuff Girls figures, which my daughter may tire of in a month or two.
So, we settled on these figures, which seemed like a deal for $14.99 - I knew the figures would be small from the description, but I did not realize how cheaply made they would be until they arrived. As usual, they arrived within 2 days of our order placement in a plastic bag material containing all 10 of the figures in separated pouches. My daughter arrived home from school that afternoon and was so excited that her new Powerpuff Girls had arrived. The figures just felt like they were made out of super cheap plastic - one of the figures would not stand due to an error in the mold on the bottom of the figure - I was able to manipulate the plastic and get the figure to stand for a period of time. The paint or ink on the figures was blurred and not clear and one of the figures had her arms crossed across her chest making her like she had huge naked breasts without nipples. I guess what matters is that my daughter loves them and that she is having fun playing with them. I am a little concerned that her 2 year old sister might get her hands on one and put it in her mouth - I am thinking that lead paint may have been used to paint them since they are so chintzy. We have told the 7 year old that she needs to keep these toys out of the reach of her little sister. I tried to find more information online about where they were manufactured, but have not been able to find anything.
