My daughter was brought this for her birthday back in November by a friend of mine because she knew I had brought the Disney princess little people castle. She explained it to me on the phone and I have to admit I was a little apprehensive, but when it came to her birthday and my daughter opened it, I was pleasantly surprised, it was the same good quality as the castle and complemented it perfectly. My daughter loves all the sounds it makes by pressing down on Sebastian you get 3 different sounds and songs, she especially loves when it sings under the sea from the film, she sits there dancing along.
This toys is designed for 18months plus but my daughter was brought it for her 1st birthday and to be honest its perfectly safe, there's no little bits, the 2 figures that come with it are a fairly reasonable size and my daughter certainly couldn't open her mouth wide enough to fit them in, so I had no worry about that. My daughter loves crawling around the floor pushing it along, and for any Disney lovers I would certainly recommend this product, and I feel that it will last a long time, I can see my daughter playing with it until she's 5-6 years old, so its defiantly worth the money as it will be a toy that lasts a long time.
I have since brought this for a little girls birthday in march where she will be 2, I think its a great addition to the castle but also think it can be easily played with without the castle.
I purchased this last October for Christmas for my little girl. I have to admit I went a bit OTT when I seen that Fisher Price had released the Princess sounds castle and I bought every available figure and this the matching carriage. It cost me £30 in Toys R Us, I have now seen it for £25.
The carriage is suitable for 18 months to 5 years and it requires 3 x AA batteries which come included.
The carriage comes with 2 figures Ariel as a mermaid and also Prince Eric. The little figures that come with the carriage are compatible with the castle and will sing when placed on the magic spot into he castle.
The carriage is a pale pastel blue and has a pink glittery see through hood which is in the shape of a shell. The carriage is pulled along by a purple sea horse. The wheels of the carriage have a starfish embossed on them. Inside the coach are two seats for Ariel and Eric. In front of them sits Sebastian the crab.
The carriage makes noises and sounds when Sebastian in pressed. These range from bubble sounds to playing the song 'Under the Sea'. The sound quality is good it is fairly loud but not too loud.
The seahorse at the front of the carriage has a misshapen wheel underneath it so when pushed it appears to bob along.
The carriage is made from sturdy plastic and is very robust.
My daughter was excited to see this at Christmas. We have watched the Little Mermaid hundreds of times as it was the first film I saw in the cinema as a child and my favourite. She immediately figured out how to push Sebastian to get the songs to play and we sung along. Last Christmas she was 19 months and it after Christmas it didn't get played with an awful lot. However recently I have noticed my daughter is more imaginative in her play and she will sit the figures in there and drive them around eventually pulling up at the castle to swap figures.
Overall this is a nice addition to the castle but I feel it is vastly overpriced as it doesn't do an awful lot. Having said that I do like it because it plays 'Under the Sea' and my daughter seems to enjoy playing with it which is the main thing.
I would five this 3 out of 5.
