We bought this for my daughter who is nearly 7 as she has asked and asked for it. I was VERY disappointed with the product. It is sturdy and the materials are good enough value but the MESS! Once Barbie is seated in the chair in position for a hair spray the spray goes everywhere. You are to hold it about 4" from the hair but it still managed to get in places I never noticed, down the back of the chair, over the table, all over the barbies seat, everywhere. It is easy to clean away but that's not the point. It means that my daughter will need to be supervised every time she uses it. Also, once you open the stencils off the hair the pattern is nothing like what you see advertised. We were lucky if you could make out any shapes it was only lines of colour. When you wash the hair as instructed with water the colour does not all come off either. My daughter is pleased with the toy but as a parent I feel it would be better to spend your money on something else. I can see this being a novelty for a week or so (if that) then being left in the back of the toy cupboard.
