I bought this on a whim for my girls, they like dolls, and everything pretend, but I wanted them to use their brains and do more than just pretend play. The girls really like the set, it is cute and is interesting for little girls. It was great "daddy" quality time, he helped with the building so he wasn't stuck pretending to be a princess. Hours of play building it, and once it is built,. I would have given it 5 stars, but one of the pieces was melted, bummer for the price.
