We got this for our daughter and she loved it!!!! The character is made from a silicon soft base material that DOES NOT smell like a nasty rubber and is pretty thick and durable. In order words, it won't tear easily if you stretch it or if it gets caught against something where it must be pulled. The glasses are not removable and I like the fact that the skins of the purses are different tones to represent different ethnicities. The chain link rings are made out of a thick metal and strong so incase you have kids that like to put stuff in their mouth it would won't come offf easily with a pull and avoid accidental swallowing. The chain is short so it won't get caught along something as well. (This can happen with any toy even though may be rare but it nice the company thought about this in their design.
The purse is probably a little bigger than an adult hand which is fine for me to fit trinkets and also making our daughter feel like she is a carrying a mommy purse. I like this because its small and if she get tired of carrying it i can slip in into my own purse without adding extra weight. With other larger purses or bags she may go off to play or lose attention to it and it's me who get stuck holding it. I am fine with this being small and light weight.
Now the company from what I saw wants to instill that the little girls express what is on their mind. (IE not to hold in). They prizes have messages included that say something along the lines "what are you thinking today". One can ignore that an move on to just get the prizes or a parent can use that to try to teach a good lesson to have their kids open up and always express their emotions to their parents. They can use the little insert question as a small activity with their kids. I did that with my daughter and she said "happy to be with mom". If you look at the purse "the head" is the main attraction to inspire what is in "your mind today". That is a small reminder or tool that can be used for your child that many parent may pass up. I figure well I got this for her lets see if can learn anything form it.
The prizes are small" two erasers and a lip gloss (macaron shaped). My daughter plays with the lip gloss but does not use the eraser because she like them a lot so i dont see the utilization of the erasers because they are too small to functionally act as a real eraser. I wish they replaced those with another functional gift. Th lip gloss is cute and NOT GROWN UPPISH to inspire premature make up use if that 'sa concern. It also does not stink like a harsh chemical and my daughter like to try it on after i taught her how to use it. Overall, i see the purse as a cute every day gift, small birthday gift, or stocking stuffer that a little girl would. A parent can use the concept of the toy as well as a teaching tool if they chose to do so or just let their little girl enjoy running around with a new toy. I do recommend this toy for a fun little purse. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
