My 6 year old loves this. It is large, colorful, and allows her to take her Barbies on "vacation". Like most Barbie toys it is made of rigid plastic which does hold up well. We have the beach house, car, and golf cart which are all holding up well with anywhere from 6 months (beach house) to several years (cars) worth of play on them. That is probably where the value is to be found here as genuine Barbie items tend to be rather expensive for the plastic you do end up getting, but they do tend to hold up to tough play and outside of some stickers that get wrecked over time, most of these sets hold up well enough to make good garage sale or hand me down items. It is a bit like legos for my son, I hate spending that kind of money of plastic but at the same time I know they will last for a while and hold kids interests over many years. Barbie items fit that niche for girls. Overall a spendy item but also, in a 6 year olds girls world, one of the top of the food chain toys. Good build quality and I anticipate she will get many years of use out of it.
