The barbie doll is great, and I think will last a long time being played with regularly. The baby doll also will last. However the high chair seems to sit at a strange angle - when the baby sits in it she is practically leaning towards the ground. Also the small bits from the cot fall off quite frequently. I regularly find it broken apart, with bits all over the room. I don't remember barbie toys being quite so cheap looking as a child, but then most kids plastic house type toys seem to look quite cheap and easily broken these days. My daughter does love playing with it though so I suppose thats the main thing. Bit expensive for what it is though.
