When my grandparent’s gifted my sister and I the Salon Chair and Wrap Set, I was very excited! When we opened it I knew it would be a great addition to our dolls’ bathroom, for we had never had a doll salon chair before. :)
It is now one of my favorite pieces in our dolls’ house. :) So today I’m going to be giving you all a review of the set.
Jessica will be my helper today. ;)
The Salon Chair and Wrap Set costs $60, and comes with a salon chair, and a wrap, flip-flops, and a headband for dolls.
I will start off with the wrap.
The wrap is made of the same material as a towel, so it’s perfect for dolls to dry off with. I love the adorable heart print! The arm straps are made of stretchy material so it’s not hard to get it on and off the doll. Up by the neck there is a little bow attached to the seam. Oddly enough the bow looks like the one Hello Kitty wears. XD
The wrap from the back.
The wrap closes in the front with Velcro.
The headband is made from the same material as the arm straps. It’s extremely easy to put on the doll, and fits very well. :)
Next, we have the flip-flops. They are the normal AG flip-flops, but in pink.
They stay on the doll’s feet with elastic in the back.
As you can see, Jessica is not perfectly stable with these shoes on. With our set, the flip-flops rise up in the middle of the sole, making the edges off the ground, and hard for Jessica to stand. She tends to lean forward or backward, which could turn into her falling.
Now we have the salon chair itself. Most of it is made of sturdy plastic.
The cushions are plastic as well, but hollow. If you press down on them, they will bend a bit. I like how they are not too squishy; they look comfy, but are able to hold the doll in place.
Here is the seat from the side.
The straps also help with holding the doll in place. :) They fit just perfectly around the doll – not too tight, and not too loose.
They close with Velcro in the front.
Underneath the seat is a little lever, just like on real salon chairs. If you press it..
..the seat will rise, making it easier for you to style your doll’s hair. :)
To lower the chair you press the lever up, and push the seat down.
The bright pink base of the chair has a rubber cover and a small lever. If you turn it…
…it will create a suction, helping the chair stay on the floor.
The chair’s suction doesn’t work very often, probably 2/5 times. That’s okay – we are using our chair more for looks then actually styling dolls’ hair with it. Besides, the chair is still fairly heavy and stays on the floor well, so even if you do style hair with it, it shouldn’t be too big of a problem. ;)
All in all, I rate the Salon Chair and Wrap Set 4.8 stars out of 5. It has great play value, super cute details, and is worth the $60. :) It would be a great addition to anyone’s dollhouse. :D
