My daughter loves role play, and for her birthday she kept asking me for some pegs and a washing line for her dolly's clothes???? I know not the most exciting request, but that's what she really wanted.
Now my first thought was just to make a washing line myself in the garden next to their play house, and I really wish I had gone with my first instinct.
Instead while shopping at TK Maxx; I saw the Casdon (Cassidy) washday set which had been reduced to a fiver!!!! Well I thought what a bargain, I may as well get this for her and then she will be able to play inside with it as well as outside and I will not have to go to the bother of making her one.
Well her birthday came round and she had so many presents it was pretty ridiculous actually how many she got especially being only three!!!(may write a few more on the other items she got!!) Anyway..... she was so excited when she saw her washing line, my hubby put it up for her and for a couple of days it did not go too badly, the pegs were a little difficult for her to use, as she was used to my pegs, that you squeeze to open..... but it all seemed ok and she played with it non stop.
But unfortunately it was a bit short lived, within a week, the washing line had gone really saggy, so my husband tightened it all, but within a few days after that all of the toy just seemed to just be falling apart..... It's just not very durable.
I still stand by the fact it was a bargain and the iron and ironing board have been fine and so have the washing basket and pegs, coat hangers and also there was some packets of washing powder, so all in all it was still a bargain, but the one part of the set I really wanted was a bit of a let down.
She now has a washing line in the garden made from two pieces of doweling and a bit of my washing line - she prefers it much better, and on days like today when it's wet and horrible, we let her put her dolls clothes on our clothes horse.
Amazon sell this for 10.95 I think, and I do think its still a good set, and maybe if your daughters are not as destructive as my daughter, then it may be a good buy.
