Fun with Some Limits
Date:October 30, 2013
Pros: Durable
Cons: limited play
This is a fun idea, 6 year old daughter enjoyed it. The way the dresses are set in the paper frames means the seams will be on the outside once they are decorated...not like the picture. The markers also bleed into the fabric. We ended up making some of our own clothes and using my grownup fabric markers... so I guess it was inspirational. for additional activities.

A pretty good deal, and my daughter loves it :)
Date:December 16, 2012
Pros: good value
Cons: barbie's legs don't bend
My daughter had put the refill pack for this decorating set on her wish list, not knowing (at age 8) that it would work better if you have the whole design set first, so I went ahead and got this for her, as well as the refill pack she had requested. She was delighted that there were so many dresses to decorate and a doll to put them on, plus she loves all the different templates and stickers to decorate the dresses. I wish the doll's knees would bend, so I would change that, but on the whole, it's a pretty good value and my child loves it, which is what really matters.
