I purchased this for my 5 yr. old granddughter who is an Ariel fan. She asked for this for months! I could not find in stores, resorted at long last to internet. I found the dolls with difficulty, going to several stores on several trips to purchase Belle, Repunzel, and Cinderella. Assembly went ok, but a decorative part on the railings does not seem to stay attached. Sometimes the dolls make it down the "slide" ok, but not always. The "swing" needs constant hand motion, which is difficult if mounted to a tubside, since that blocks the back opening. The "spin" platform to send the dolls spinning into the water is difficult for little hands to use quickly to obtain the desired effect. All that said, my granddaughter is happy to have it and has played with it many times using a basin of water and setting the water palace on a support next to the large basin. She also uses regular "Magic Clip" princesses to add to the play, which can lay down on the slide, but can't use the "spin" platform.
