Hours of fun but lack of quallity control
on January 19, 2013
Past Christmas I bought 3 sets of this playset, and kids love them. I bought more characters for them.
First of all, be aware that I will take you 2 hours to cross reference all the little stickers and the diagram, and put them on the hotel. Stickers are numbered....1...2...3......I believe 80+ or so. Might be more. Tiny stickers. If you are buying it for younger child, make sure you have plenty of time to put the stickers on beforehand. Another problem is stickers don't hold up. Be aware they will fall off easily.
This item is lack of quality. Plastic is cheaply made. Some parts doesn't snap right. First set I bought as a gift, the hinge broke. The door won't close. The intended child is 5 years old and her parents spent a lot of time putting the stickers on. I returned and bought another set for her, this time I put the stickers on. Oh boy! I was going to give up. The second set, the door clasp doesn't click. However the door can still be closed with the key. I'm not going to bother exchanging it as I don't want to go through the sticker process again.
This playset is a lot of fun. The birthday girl opened this present and didn't want to open other presents. It's a rather huge set. Comes with a necklace for your child, 1 figurine, 1 pet, and a bunch of little tiny pieces of accessories like hairbow, handbag, etc. I gave another set to a 6 year old and she absolute love it.
Despite quality issues, I strongly recommend this set, along with extra play figurines. Your child / grandchild will ask you for more! Afterall it's a hotel and it needs more guests!
This item came in a big nice box and a handle. Will definately "WOW" the recipient!
