3.0 out of 5 stars Great Concept, Slight Miss, January 12, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Melissa & Doug Abby & Emma Deluxe Magnetic Dress-Up Set (Toy)
First, this toy says it's for children 3 years and older and it's true. There are some REALLY TINY PARTS in this set. See those little feet on the figures? There's teeny tiny magnetic shoes for each of those teeny tiny feet. My daughter is two and she owns tons of toys for older ages and is fine with them, but this set, I won't let her have a large portion of the little magnetic pieces for fear they will be mistaken for a raisin, or even eaten by one of our dogs.

The magnets aren't as strong as I would have expected, but they do okay. You can't layer clothes, and if you prop up the doll in the pink stand, the clothes sometimes slide down the body a bit. However the pieces are well formed, nice quality, rich colors. My daughter calls them "bodies" and likes putting on and taking off their clothes (and playing with the clothes on the refrigerator and other metal surfaces).

Like others have said, this box (and most items I have gotten from Melissa & Doug) needs a lid! It's a lovely pink tray for the toy, but without a lid it's pretty pointless.

I am happy that the girls are different ethnicities, and are built like real little girls. The clothes are pretty fun - cute prints, styles that can't be associated with a certain decade and are fun and not sexy or mature.

Amazon was having 50% off Melissa & Doug toys near Christmas and I bought this on a whim. If I could do it again, I don't think I would buy this. It doesn't seem as though it was well thought out (teeny tiny pieces, unable to layer, magnets not even as strong as those for M&D wooden magnetic letters).
