Top critical review
fragile and poorly made
on January 28, 2013
There is one other review here that mentions the cheap quality of this toy, and the specific examples given are exactly two if the issues i have noticed watching my daughter play with it--in particular, the pieces do not even stay connected. I don't mean that they sometimes separate due to handling by our child, but rather the connecting pieces fit so poorly that they routinely disengage just while the toy is sitting on the floor. The "elevator" is the only moving part in the entire toy and it does not work at all.
On the positive side, the one doll included with the toy is nice--my daughter loves these; and some of the small pieces (the clothes rack and the little dresses) my daughter loves to play with. But the main item itself--i.e., the "Fashion Boutique" is so cheap i am considering whether to just throw it away.
