My little girl loves Minnie Mouse and all our family and friends know that so for her birthday this year there was a bit of a theme going with the presents as she received lots of Minnie Mouse inspired gifts. This Minnie Mouse sweet shop was one of the cute gifts that she received and its a nice play set that we enjoy playing with.
The set is just small but very cute and uses its size very well and also has lots of cute little Minnie-isms!
The set is plastic and has two doors that fold open to reveal a sweet shop inside. By sweets and this is the American I assume, they mean sweet like ice cream as this is really more like an ice cream shop.The sweet shop is shaped like a big round ice cream with cream and sprinkles on the top and a cone on the bottom although it is round and not cone shaped. On the top there is a Minnie Mouse bow, just to let you know that this is a Minnie set. The ice cream on top is a very light pink colour and then the cone is purple and the bow on top is a dark pink, very Minnie Mouse looking and her favourite colours! To me it looks like one of those little shops you get on the sea-front, a small little cubicle that sells sweets or whatever and if this is the look they are going for then they've definitely got it right.
Inside on the back wall you see a cute counter scene which is just a sticker stuck on the back wall. Its an ice cream counter so there are lots of nice treats to choose from and different cones you can pick including a chocolate covered Minnie Mouse one. On either side of the shop there are little shelves where you can prop yourself up and have a strawberry sundae or another sort of ice cream.
The set comes with a little Minnie Mouse plastic figure which I think is a nice touch because you can have her standing at the counter or serving at the little plastic cash register that comes with the set. Minnie bends at her waist so you can stand her up or sit her down which is good.
As well as the cash register there is a little plastic portable trolley that comes with this set. My little girl likes this part as she can take Minnie and the trolley and go serve sweets and ice cream treats to her dollies and teddy's!
What I like about this set is because it is small its very portable so we often take it and put it with our bigger Minnie and Mickey sets such as the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and we have Mickey and some of the other characters come and get some sweets/ice cream from the shop.
