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.
I agree that the camera looks fake. I tried to open it to get the roll of film but it's really hard to open. I didn't open it because I thought I might break it. Plus, the button that you press down to take a picture doesn't work anymore. I take good care of my things so there was no rough play involved. It just stopped working.
The fins don't fit my dolls. I can get them part way on the dolls feet but not all the way. The snorkel fits perfectly. Here is my custom Katelynne saying hi.
I love the little guidebook. It fit's on the doll's wrist perfectly and there's a little snail charm too.
