Overall, its a nice product and my kid loves it. She really wanted it. That said, like most of these Barbie houses/motels/castles/studio apartments, its basically just a giant plastic clip together item. My kids are gentle with their toys and I don't think this will last more than a year or so. For the regular price, I do not think that there is enough value to justify the purchase. if you get it on sale, then it is probably worth your kid's happiness. I wish Mattel would spend a bit more time making these items a bit better constructed and designed (I'm looking at you cardboard inserts and Fences).
