My eldest daughter was bought this set for Christmases ago when it was on offer in Asda in their usual £15 toys for Christmas deals.
The set comprises of a pushchair, a car seat, a high chair, a travel cot, a swing and a changing bag. All the items came packaged in a cardboard box and had to be put together by an adult before they could be played with.
The decoration of the items is pale pink with brown and a darker pink flowers on which I wouldn't have thought was the best decoration as I would have liked it to be more brightly coloured.
The items were pretty easy to put together however the car seat is also the seat for the highchair and for the swing and my daughter was not happy about this as she wanted to put one baby in the swing whilst she fed the other baby in the highchair which obviously wasn't possible.
The basis for the highchair, the swing and the travel cot are metal tubes which fit into little plastic connector pieces, they are pretty sturdy being metal pieces but we found that the rods kept coming out of the connectors and it was pretty much just a waste of time and effort especially when every time my daughter put her baby into the travel cot it came apart.
The car seat is made of pink plastic and has a liner in the same material of the pink and brown flowers inside it, the car seat has a handle for your child to carry around their baby which my daughter liked to do. The fastenings for the baby to go into the car seat fasten with Velcro and aren't exactly the strongest so more often that not if tipped the baby would fall out.
The pushchair seems pretty flimsy just like the rest of the set however over two years later my youngest daughter enjoys whizzing up and down the living room with this so it has actually lasted rreally well. The handles wiggle from side to side and the wheels clatter from side to side as it is pushed but it is still going and besides dolls both my daughters have decided to sit in this on numerous occasions and it has never broken.
The swing uses the car seat and you have to attach the car seat to the frame made with the metal rods with Velcro, if you put a doll which is too heavy into the seat then it will topple the car seat part forwards as the weight makes the handle move. The car seat is also used as the highchair but this time it sits on top of the frame and has a tray which holds the dolls in a little better, the high chair was an ok part of the set it was just that in the end the pieces which made the frames were no good and had to be thrown away so then the swing and highchair couldn't be assembled.
The changing bag is a little strange in my opinion as it is a piece of fabric in the same decoration as the rest of the set but it fastens along the sides with Velcro. The Velcro pieces are quite narrow so it is hard for a child to line them up, I think the idea is that it is a changing bag which changes into a changing mat but it isn't the best of ideas.
My eldest daughter played with the whole set a few times but she got fed up of it all falling apart and since this set has never really played with dolls even when we bought her a decent doll and pram last Christmas she has no interest.
The set is cheap and it certainly looks it too, I wouldn't have bought this as a present myself as it was on display in Asda so you could see what the quality was like but this was from a family member who always like to buy something which makes it look like she has spent more than she has. The rods and connectors went in the bin after about a month or so and then that left us with the changing bag, the pushchair and the car seat, the car seat has been sat in my daughters wardrobe for ages now with her having no interest in it at all but the pushchair is still pushed around a lot. I would suggest paying more for a better set or buying just a simple pushchair and car seat set.
