Great, but a few niggling issues
on 4 February 2015
I purchased the spongebob pineapple house playset for my son who loves spongebob. The box it came in was impressive and well presented. It is easy enough to assemble - mainly stickers. There are lots of household accessories ranging from furniture (bed with lever to jump spongebob out of bed, chair with sound effects, TV with picture you can manually spin, cooker with sounds and a little light, bath tub ) to small accessories (she'll phone, Gary's bowl and newspapers, jellyfish net, cardboard jellyfish) - that's just to name a few. A door on either side - both open, one has a smaller door that's Gary sized. My son loves it and I got another set of small figures so he can play with Spongebobs friends as well - only spongebob and Gary are included in this set.
I have a few issues - 1. the sound effects are very clearly not true to the character 2. the top of the pineapple just doesn't stick in and as it is a rubbery plastic and has sat in the box for some time it no longer fits the slot designated to slot the pineapple into it - we can't use ours with the set 3. There are two base plates that stick out to extend the floor when open and also a surf board that acts as a lift inside, neither sit very well when closing it - the plates have to be removed to close 4. My son likes to close it with all the furniture in it and walk around with it - there is no definite closing mechanism and stuff just falls out everywhere.
Overall my son likes it, but considering the cost I would have expected a little more likeness to the character sounds and a little better quality - but it is big for what it is, lots of detail and great for a young fan. My plays with it all time. I'd recommend - although shop around as I have found it cheaper.
