The car is plastic and fairly sturdy, but I think you could easily lose a bumper with rough play so if your child is not so gentle you might want to think twice about getting this and just go with the Target car instead.
It fits two dolls fairly easily. You have to put the one that's going into the driver's seat in first because she'll have to go in a bit sideways.
Minis and Julie's dogs that she walks can fit in the back, but the minis don't really sit. I'm sure the regular AG pets (i.e. Coconut et. al.) won't fit in back, but they'll fit in the front seat.
The bucket of stuff doesn't fit in the back or the trunk. There is enough room in the trunk for some small items. The front lights turn on, but not the rear. They only stay on for ~30 seconds or so, though. The radio plays about fifteen seconds of four different songs all of which sound like they're from the 70s but none of which I recognize. There are videos on youtube if you want to know what the car sounds like. It has a wee little stick shift! I love it, I've been driving a stick shift almost as long as I've been driving.
There are seat belts, of course, but you can feel free to ignore them because no one wore seat belts in the 70s. LOL! This is a great item and your kids will have a ball with it but it's awfully pricey. Still, I give it a solid A for AWESOME!
