The hairdryer comes as part of a set which included a purse and hairbrush too; it retails at around £20.
The hairdryer is bright pink in colour with an image of Hello Kitty down the nozzle, it has two heat settings, hot and warm, my hubby was a little worried about Lauren burning herself by using the hot setting but I was able to talk to Lauren about only using the cooler setting and so far, she seems to have listened to what I have said. I must say, the hot setting seems to be even hotter than my own hairdryer so I am quite glad she only uses the other one.
The switch which alternates the different heat settings is locates on the handle of the dryer, the switch is like small light switch, it is easy to operate, even whilst styling my hair. The hairdryer also has a cool shot button which is situated above the heat control switch.
I was quite surprised that this is a 2000watt dryer which is the same as mine, with the Kitty design; I expected it to be less powerful as it's definitely aimed at younger children. Unlike my hairdryer, this doesn't come with any different nozzles, the fact that this doesn't have any different attachments probably accounts for when the end nozzle on the hairdryer cannot be removed.
I was quite surprised at how long the cord is on the hairdryer, it measures around 1.5 meters which I think is quite a decent size, for use at home, the length of the cord isn't really important as we both have mirrored wardrobes in our room however I know that if we ever go away and take this with us, it will come in quite handy as I have stopped in hotels before where the mirror isn't situated anywhere near the plug socket.
One of the biggest pluses about the hairdryer is how lightweight it is, we both find it quite easy to hold and angle whilst using without adding any strain on our arms. In the past, Lauren has tried to dry my hair when we have been playing 'hairdressers' and found that my hairdryer is too heavy for her to use.
I would definitely recommend the set and it gets 5 out of 5 stars from me.
