Snorkel Set - GYAW $16
Kailey and Tess love snorkeling! Put on Kailey’s snorkel, mask, and fins, then fill her pretend underwater camera with sticker film. Press the lever to see the pictures she took! Comes with a Sea Snoop’s Guide to Tide Pools guidebook.
The goggles are cute. They are really hard, clear plastic and made just like real ones. They fit her head very well. The snorkel attaches to the mask easily.
The flippers are snug, but fit okay. They are rubbery material, similar to real flippers.
The camera is a disaster. Why is it blue and lavender like the other pieces? I've never seen a camera that matched a snorkel set before. It makes the entire set look like it's a toy and not a replica of anything a real girl would use.
The camera, however, does have a neat function. It has this small roll of 'film' that you can insert and when you push down the button to 'take a picture' a small bit of the 'film' comes out of the side of the camera. Think instant Polariods. This 'film' is actually individual stickers with images of four different shells/items Kailey would find in the tide pools. Really cute. Comes with two rolls.
The Guidebook has pictures and information about the items that are actually on the sticker 'film'. Very cute.
Overall grade B+. Fun for Kailey. Not many other uses. Camera looks too fake.
