This set, on the whole, is great. The play features work well, the stickers are detailed, and it is a lot of fun to play with. The exterior of the house is great, and it really looks unique. I love the new designs of the mini dolls, but personally, I'd prefer the standard eye shape for Emma. When we play with it, we switch out the eyes with Charlotte's eyes from Emma's House.
My problems with the set comes with the building process. The rope was very difficult to get on without it falling out. It was a neat idea, just very difficult to do.
My other issue with the set is the fact that you cannot remove the floors from the building. When you try to remove the furniture and access the windows, you have to take apart part of the build.
But apart from those two issues, I would whole heartily say if you are a friends fan, you should buy this set. If you are new to friends, this is a great starter set but you should make sure you have a total of 5 mini dolls to make the 5 beds and chair set up work.
