I bought this recently for my Barbie-mad 4 year old daughter. It is a lovely doll and she was so happy to get it.
My criticism is that the extras can be lost. She happily stuck the flowers onto the wings, which I had to show her how to do, but once she'd done it once she expressed no further interest in doing it again. I think the play value has come from the Barbie itself rather than the extras (i.e. the wings, flowers and wand).
The boots and crown come tied on with transparent, thin plastic bands but it you take them off (silly me!) then they will fall off easily and could get lost, which is our case.
The flowers are relatively easy to stick on (I recommend doing so on a hard surface and not on a sofa as you have to push the wand down so they stick onto the wings) and do come off easily after but only if you pull them (i.e. they won't fall off on their own). We've left them stuck on otherwise they could get lost.
All-in-all a very pretty Barbie but maybe the extra play value (i.e the flowers and wand) has been a little lost on my daughter.
