This review is from: Barbie Mini Kingdom Magical Expandable Castle Playset (Toy)
My 3 1/2 year-old daughter loves this play set. We got it at Target today, and she has been playing with it for the past several hours. We also bought a couple of the dolls (sold separately). This is her first interest in any kind of doll toy. She is enjoying the castle more than the dolls, but that will change in time. She is spending lots of time opening and closing the doors, playing with the furniture, pushing the button that lights-up the crown, and her favorite part is the key that unlocks the play set. I like that it is on a smaller scale than the other Barbie play sets since we don't have room for a super-jumbo princess palace. This one fits easily on part of our slim coffee table. The whole thing folds up to be neatly put away. The dolls that I bought had snap-on clothes, which is great for little hands. I also like that there are princess gowns instead of trashy hooker fashions.
