“ Brand: My Pet / Type: Play Pet Salon „
As I had spoilt my daughter rotten for her birthday and Christmas, it was getting difficult thinking of ideas for people when they were asking me what they could buy for her. My mum came home from shopping one day with a pet grooming salon that she thought would make a great little present for her. This wasn't something that I had seen before so I wasn't entirely sure whether my daughter would be keen or not.
What is the pet grooming salon? Basically you get a plastic pet carrier filled with grooming accessories and a little pet. The My Pet Grooming Salon comes with a little soft white kitten which is very cute with its little pink bow tied around her neck! The pet carrier is bright pink, with a yellow door containing a large paw print through which you can see the contents of the carrier. There is a chunky purple handle at the top of the carrier which makes it easy for your child to get a good grip and carry it around. The set comes with a really good range of accessories: Nail varnish, perfume, haridryer, brush, mirror, comb, scissors, nail clippers, tweezers, feeding bowl, food and more.
If I am honest I think this set is really quite pointless and somewhat confusing for a child, after all how many people put nail varnish and perfume on a kitten??!?! When my daughter has played with the set, she has simply used the brush, comb and food for her and just played with it as she would a normal pet set. She has used the perfume, nail varnish and hairdryer on her dolls so it hasn't been a waste of money by any means but I do think it is a strange set. My daughter has since received a pet vet set which I bought with some of her Christmas money so she has combined the two sets and it has turned out to be something she plays with regularly, though she will not keep the vanity items in with the set, they are in her doll box!
The cost of the My Pet Grooming Salon is £18.74 on Amazon at the moment, though I know my mum didn't pay that price for it thankfully as she came across it in one of the discount stores (like Home Bargains I think). I couldn't possibly recommend this toy at that price as I really think that it is way overpriced for what it is, but if you can find it cheaper it is a cute toy that a child will have fun with.
Thank you for reading my review :)
