This advent calendar was a great idea, but the little perfume bottles, or whatever they are don't seem to make sense. Plus, snapping five or six pieces together is way too easy. It's like a throw-away toy. The little set of combs, hairdryer, and brushes don't make sense, either - are the dolls grooming themselves at the ice rink? Brushing the squirrel? I know I like the "girl Legos" because they leave behind some of the ridiculous fluff of Barbie and makeup dolls - but I'd still like to see the set make sense, and be more cohesive. The price of $30 is about right, for the number of pieces, and the little pull-down winter scene play mat pulls things together. My suggestion would be to put a list inside the box of what some of these things are, for Mom and Dad. :)
If we'd had to pay more, I would have been disappointed - so this is a good price-range, for Lego.
