She enjoyed playing with it and it had plenty to keep her occupied - a jacuzzi, lots of different accessories lend well to imaginative play, music , sound effects and lights. And to be fair, this was one of her favorite toys that was played with frequently.
The issue was durability. Barbie toys are often not the most durable, but some are worse than others and this unfortunately fell into that category. The ship opens up in the center, and within a short 4 month period of careful play, was not lining up correctly or shutting as it should. The top which opens would spring back up and by 6 months refused to close at all.
Its a shame as this is a fun toy for little girls. Right now the price is pretty low so its a good deal for the money, but really, it would be nice if Barbie products with a big name like mattel behind them, could have the quality to go with the creativity!
I bought this for my 3 year old granddaughter and she loves it. She can manipulate it very well and her imagination is sparked to keep her playing for hours. It is versatile and should be a favorite of hers for some time to come. it is varied enough that she can also share and play with her friends with it. It is not too cumbersom or heavy for her to move and is self-contained so easy to clean up when play is done.
We live in Florida and have a covered patio so we put it out there, on a table and that way they can fill the pool up and I don't have to worry about water getting everywhere. If you live in a colder climate and cannot use it outside during Winter, maybe put a tarp or plastic bag on the floor, then a large towel, then set it on that for water play.
They play with it for hours, a few times a week. I was hesitant to buy it because generally when my daughter REALLY wants a toy, it ends up being the one she plays with least. (Last year it was Baby Alive....she played with it once....sigh).
I think that because the cruise ship incorporates 'water play' which my girls love, it keeps them interested longer. If it didn't have the pool, I don't think this would be as big a hit with my daughters. It *appears* to be kind of flimsy (especially the top with the disco ball which turns into a water slide into the pool) but it hasn't broke yet and my girls are pretty rough on toys, so maybe it is better built than I first thought.
If your daughters love barbies and water play, then I would say this is a great toy. Although my daughters would have been just as happy with a large bucket of water and a few barbies....lol.
I would recommend this, but buy it on sale, don't pay $60 or whatever the full retail is. It is not worth that much.
Also, maybe girls that are a little older than mine would play with it longer and use more than just the pool function. I remember playing with my barbie townhouse, camper, corvette etc. for HOURS when I was about 7, 8 , 9 years old. I would have LOVED this at that age.
This is the most wonderful gift a little girl could receive. My 16 year old daughter helped my 7 year old put it together and they played for hours. The sound affects are wonderful. I'm really glad that I purchased this item.
