Some of you may recall I wrote earlier this week about my daughter Danica’s new Pinypon dolls and toys she received for her birthday. Danica loves these adorable little dolls and they have been a very big hit in our house with all three of my older children.
We also received for review the new Pinypon Weekend Getaway Hotel which is now available exclusively at Costco Stores.
What makes Pinypon dolls stand out from all the rest are its mix and match possibilities. Swap their adorable heads, mid-sections or feet and hair! Plus Pinypon’s attention to detail makes every playset an interactive adventure. Tucked inside the Hotel are 50 (!) accessories for imaginative play — Pinypon friends can drive up in their convertible and check-in to a hotel. Once unpacked, they might put their toes in the pool or relax on the terrace.
The Weekend Getaway comes with 4 of the adorable pint sized dolls which come with cute outfits including skirts which are all interchangeable. Just pop off their heads and bodies and mix and match the outfits and hairstyles. Each doll head has a different face on either side so you can change them up even more. Eyes open, closed, winking, etc. The set also includes a cute little pet turtle. There are SO many accessories included with this set including dining utensils and computers. There is a check in desk for the hotel, a dining table, a little cell phone which the dolls can actually hold, and even a pool.
The stairway for the hotel is easily removable and can be flipped over to make a slide for the dolls. The hotel features a little merry-go-round type feature for the dolls pets to enjoy a fun ride. There is a bed for the dolls and also a bed for the pets.
By far my favorite feature of the Weekend Getaway Hotel is how easily packable it is. The side of it opens up and ‘locks’ closed with a key that comes with the hotel. The plastic key comes attached to a string necklace so kids can easily keep track of it. I wouldn’t trust it to stay closed too much as the lock is easily turned, but I still think it is great that all of the dolls and accessories can fit inside and the door can be latched closed for storage or for taking it with you on a trip! It also comes with 3 small pretend keys that fit in various doors of the hotel. They don’t actually lock at all, but it is fun for the kids to have hotel keys.
My boys love the convertible car that comes with the set. It comes with a trunk space for the dolls luggage and even has a hitch on the back for hauling trailers from other sets. Danica loved that the car came with stickers so she could decorate it her own way.
I can’t say enough how much my kids (girl and boys) love these Pinypon sets and all the accessories! I will warn though that this toy is recommended for ages 4 and up and comes with MANY tiny little pieces which I have to keep out of the babies reach. This toy also came with some assembly and around 80 stickers that needed to be applied. I think it took me a couple of hours to get it all put together! I would still totally recommend it, but if you are setting it up for Christmas morning make sure you give yourself some time.
We don’t have a giveaway for this play set but be sure to enter the giveaway for your choice of Pinypon Snow Ski Lodge or Pinypon Car & Tow! (Ends at 11:59 pm CST on 12/9/13)
