Lalaloopsy doll's house and accessories.
Firstly who are the Lalaloopsy dolls, they are rag dolls each made from a piece of fabric that magically came to life when their last stitch was sewn. They each have their own unique names, personalities and date of sewn [ on their bottoms] Each doll comes with her [ or his as there are a 3 boy dolls too] own pet and accessories that co-ordinate with them. There are currently over 80 unique Lalaloopsy dolls with new ones coming out all the time. They are made my M.G.A. Entertainment.
As you might be aware my daughter is Lalaloopsy mad , and i mean mad , if she is not playing with them , she is talking about them, or watching them, or playing on their web-site , everything is based around Lalaloopsy ! So when we saw this on the american websites we couldn't wait for it to be released over here , as soon as it was [ April 2012] i was on the hunt for it and managed to pay £25 [amazon] instead of the £39.99 r.r.p. Which i am so glad about as it is smaller than i had expected .
In the packaging it looks quite substantial , but once out i was initially disappointed and did think it looked rather small ,the actual measurements are 27 cm high, 26cm width with a depth of 10cm. But it is made for the mini dolls and they do fit perfectly as does any of the furniture you might have that comes in sets with the mini figures .
Front of House.
The front of the house is covered in all the lovely detail you would expect of a Lalaloopsy product. From the chocolate button roof tiles and teapot chimney. There is a large bay window with open book roof and opening doors and small balcony. There is a smaller window again with open book roof and working shutters. The front door is stable style with the top opening in, and the bottom opening out. Next to it is a small mail opening and the cutest animal flap [ like a cat flap] for the Lalaloopsy pets . The swing on the front works well and fits 2 mini dolls perfectly .
The Sides of House
Even the sides have detail , on one side is a window with working shutters and and garden hose that come be wound . On the other side is a small lemonade stand , an animal lift that cane be wound up to the top floor and a bird flap .
The back is very plain , much more so than other Lalaloopsy items . There are 3 floors and it is completely open. There are some small details to the walls but they are in the same pink plastic as the rest of the back so don't stand out as well as they could .
The house comes with some lovely little accessories first the picnic bench with parasol , this is one of my favourite accessories, it's the perfect size for 4 mini dolls and is very cute. Lemonade jug and 2 lemon with straws completes the picnic table and great for imaginative play . There is even a tiny letter to post in your mail box .
The doll that comes with the house is Blossom Flowerpot. She was sewn for a pair of gardener's gloves, she is a very caring and kind soul who is a natural green thumb. This cutie loves to dig and plant flowers with love and care. She's always cheerful and helpful to others and also super patient. She comes with her own pet butterfly and 2 flower pots that can clip on to the window and balcony.
After my 1st thoughts on it being too small , i have changed my mind, it's the perfect size in relation to the mini dolls and furniture . My daughter loves it , its a well used and well loved part of her Lalaloopsy town . Sometimes it's a house, sometimes it's a vets . She retells all sorts of stories with the house and still plays with it for hours . Nothing has broken off, and everything still works how it should, which goes to show the quality of the house .
Perfect for imaginative play with the mini dolls, good quality and well made.
No back to the house so not easy to transport.
After a initial thought of 4 out of 5 [ due to the high r.r.p] i actually think it deserves a 5
its available for around £20-£27 at most places ,and for that price you are getting a lovely quality toy and i would certainly buy it again .
