    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)
    I’m not a huge fan of construction type playsets because I’m not a visual person and don’t like having to follow visual directions. My daughter, on the other hand, is a HUGE fan of Legos. She started with Duplos and has moved on to Legos, even assembling many playsets on her own. I have to admit, when I first opened this box and saw that the 159 pieces included so many tiny ones, I was a bit intimidated. My daughter, though, was excited about the possibilities and about working toward that goal of a finished structure. She’s never worked on a set this large with this many tiny pieces, though, so quite a bit of adult supervision and assistance are needed (at least for a six year-old).

    As always with these types of playsets, the directions are all visual and they’re laid out step by step. I liked that they are also in full color so that it’s harder to make a mistake. While Daddy and daughter put the set together, I also checked the compatibility of these pieces with my daughter’s Legos. While they are not always a perfect or easy fit, the MegaBloks will work with the Legos and allow for a lot of variation in play.

    I love watching my daughter get excited as she works through the various stages of assembly. She’s learning to follow an instruction manual, to develop patience, to work well with others (she and Daddy can both get frustrated at times), and to finish what she starts.

    This isn’t a groundbreaking toy, but it’s fun. She was thrilled with the fact that her “Legos” (to her, construction bricks will always be Legos) have Barbie and Ken as the main characters. The playtime and the variety of pieces in this set make it a great toy for kids. I’m pretty certain that this toy will get good playtime and not be a flash-bang that ends up under the bed or in the closet. I would, however, only get this large set if you know that your child already enjoys Lego or MegaBlok construction. This is no starter set!

    Not the same quality as Legos, January 24, 2013

    We have all the Lego Friends sets (the Legos aimed towards girls with more feminine colors, products like a hair salon, fashion studio, etc.) I thought this would be similar to that. However, even though they are the same size as Legos, they do not snap together with ease, and make my daughter frustrated. The two figures (Ken and Barbie) have these permanent stands on their feet, and they aren’t as easy to use as the Lego friends. It’s a cute set, but it isn’t going to be as durable as a Lego set (if you knock it over, it will come apart.) My daughter thinks the figures are too big for this set, and plans to use her Squinkies in it instead, so now the Squinkies will swim in style.

    I really love the way this pool set looks. It’s so bright and colorful, cheerful and adorable. It’s the most girly building set I have ever seen. Little girls would LOVE this. The pool can even be filled with water if you want, making it even more realistic!
    My two glaring complaints are this: First, the quality of it concerns me. Things totally fall apart with barely a touch. That is very frustrating. And Mega Bloks, unlike Legos, do not snap together as smoothly which results in warping sometimes in the finished product. They are not always easy to assemble because of this which is frustrating.
    My second complaint is: The little dolls are kind of poorly designed. They look cute but they are too big for this set and just don’t look/function right because of that. And even worse, they stand on these molded/permanent platforms that are molded to their feet, so if you have them sit down, that platform is sticking out in the air (which you can see in a description photo above). Ridiculous! They had a good thing going with these dolls being so cute and well designed in appearance, till you get to the bottom. How can you play with dolls like that?!
    But that being said, the set is very cute overall, and I love the little pizzas, hot dogs, and water bottles (or whatever those blue drinks are). The colors are not only bright and cheerful but many of them are glittery too, like the pool interior is blue with glitter, and the slide & steps are pink with glitter. It looks awesome.
    The set takes less than 1/2 hour to build since it has a very meager 159 pieces. For those who are not much into building, this is the perfect set to get. Aside from using some brute force to snap uneven blocks together, and some others falling apart while assembling, this is a very simple build. It has 2 sheets full of stickers for decorating the set (which I opted not to use because I am not into stickers at all – and it still looked awesome too), but youngsters might love this aspect of personalization.
    This set also comes in a nice reusable box with a handle on it which is great if you take it all apart and want to store it for later use.
    This would make a great gift for little girls, and you are sure to see a beaming smile from them when they see all the pink and Barbie, and the pool, and food, and all the other cute features this set has. I definitely recommend it for youngsters who like this type of toy!
