5.0 out of 5 stars my 4 year old loved this, 8 Jan 2010
My 4 year old loved this. It comes with a little tu-tu, cardboard wand, slightly ill-fitting crown, tickets and invitations. She loves getting all the stuff out and putting on a little dance for us (often naked which is slightly disconcerting!). She has had it out quite a few times now. It comes with some throw around confetti stars that will instantly get lost, but otherwise it is well designed and you can put all the stuff back in the book fairly easily; this is a very good present for a little girl who likes dressing up/imaginative games.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad..., 21 Sep 2008
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This dolls house comes with a lot of playmobil bits to play with. It hasn't got real windows, but the decor is bright. The hinges are always falling off, I have glued mine on and now it is OK. Glue is a very useful thing to have with playmobil toys. The thing that irritates me is that there is no 'lip' to stop things sliding off the different levels, and there isn't much space in there so you have to be careful. And when the people sit down, their feet don't fit under the table, which drives my 3 year old nuts! Maybe best for slightly older child than mine, but she absolutely loves playmobil stuff and plays with it most days.

2.0 out of 5 stars a new incarnation..., 25 Mar 2008
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mousetrap (Toy)
Initially I was very impressed with the new version; the three different traps get set off throughout the game which makes it more interesting, and it seemed pretty sturdy and a big improvement on the old version. But one piece arrived with a broken hinge which was irritating; also like another reviewer the loop the loop section didn't work, the ball just didn't have enough momentum. Unless I'm doing something seriously wrong this is a pretty major design flaw. As there is no help or support number to call this one is going straight back to the shop; shame, if it worked properly it would be a great game.

I'm very pleased with this player, instinctually easy to use, silent on standby (I used to have a noisy philips combi)and good quality playback.

5.0 out of 5 stars use some glue and get a great pirate ship, 10 Jan 2008
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
The pirate of the caribbean stuff is being reduced all over the place so shop around (in boots online sale in jan). I think this ship is great, tons of features, nice powerful shooting cannon and very detailed. Some complain of bits falling off in play, but if you get some superglue you can permanently keep everything in place. I was presently surprised at how much of the ship was already constructed (mostly screwed together). I bought this a ship for playpeople; a couple of modifications to the winches with spare playpeople bits mean that they can now hold on. A couple of the doors are a bit fiddly to close, I help my 4 year old play with some sections. loads of different areas to play with. Comes with a figure, 3 cannon and a few barrels - you'll need to find some pirates. If you can get it cheap it is great value for money.
