Review of the Barbie Rainbow Cove Princess Castle Playset
One of the hottest new toys for kids, according to Walmart’s 25 Hottest Toys for 2016 list, is the Barbie Rainbow Cove Princess Castle Playset. This castle offers hours of fun with fashion dolls in their very own castle.
This playset is expansive and boasts a full three floors to create whatever scenes your child’s imagination desires. The backdrop for the castle floors pop with all the bright, beautiful colors of the rainbow.
There is some assembly required by an adult but no tools are needed.
From the turrets to the bottom floor of the castle, it’s no wonder it’s in such high demand. Plenty of attention to detail is found in this castle and with the multitude of accessories, your child can create an atmosphere that’s fit for a princess for her dolls.
Some of the lovely features of the castle are found in the butterfly cutouts that you’ll see on the bright yellow doors of the castle. The turret at the top of the castle has a rainbow with clouds.
A lovely fairy doll (not included) can be fixed to the rainbow for more magical beauty. The holder will allow the doll to spin. There’s another rainbow between the turret and the end column of the castle.
The dolls can walk into the castle using the butterfly door or through the open access on the bottom floor which leads directly into the dining room. There are accessories for the dining room.
You’ll find a table and two chairs in bright colors. These cute chairs both have backs that are made in the shape of butterflies. There is a chandelier that hangs above the table, which adds to the glamour of the castle.
The accessories for the table include cupcakes for two fashion dolls along with teacups and miniature saucers. Fashion dolls can access the second floor of the castle using the stairs.
These stairs are brightly colored in keeping with the rainbow theme. On the second floor, you’ll find there’s a bedroom along with a closet and a vanity for the dolls to use. The accessories for the vanity include a bottle of perfume and a hairbrush.
For catching some sleep, the bedroom features a lovely canopy bed with a fluffy pillow. At the very top of the castle, there is a pool that’s shaped just like a seashell and the fashion dolls can relax and have fun splashing around.
The deck on the roof offers the opportunity to survey the kingdom. All three of these floors are packed with details to make the castle come to life and add to your child’s enjoyment.
This Barbie playset rates 3.9 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
Although most reviewers liked the set (and almost all kids loved it), there were two common complaints. First, some folks thought that the quality was not there for the price. Not all the pieces seem to snap into place so they come lose easily.
The second most common complaint was that none of the dolls are included.
The Princess Castle Playset is expensive and quite large (watch the video to get a good idea of the size) but seems to capture the imagination of children. If you have Barbie fans in your family and they have the room to store it, this playset could brings many hours of playtime.
Amazon has it in stock at the time of writing and the price is discounted (Sept 2016).
