-This trunk is covered with a soft, lilac, faux-leather (but very good faux leather!). It has a stylized star on the front with the words, "Dance Studio" underneath it.
-The trunk has a metal (not plastic!) handle and metal clasps.
-Inside is a mirror (that comes with a protective film on it, be sure to remove the film!) and a removable wooden ballet bar. Inside there are also two hooks (one for hangers, one which I use to hang ballet slippers off of) and a cubby.
-The trunk also comes with an adorable shoe box sporting the same stylized star that is on the front of the trunk.
If you remove the dolls shoes and the ballet bar, a doll can stand inside in front of the mirror. You will probably want to put the ballet bar back in after the doll is inside, because this stops the doll from flopping around. It is a rather tight fit with the doll, but it works.
All in all, I give this trunk an A-, purely because the soft outside dents and gets rub marks on it quite easily. But this is great for storage, display, and play. I highly recommend it.

I bought this trunk specifically for my Marisol, to keep all her outfits together, and to store her, as she is my own personal doll, and I wanted to keep her collection separate from my daughter's.
I love this trunk, and the dance theme. It holds all of Marisol's outfits (4), and although the trunk that is exclusive to Mari, is designed to hold all her gear, it does not allow for hanging. I now have her Jazz outfit in here as well, and it holds everything! I do have to keep the tap shoes alongside the shoe box, but everything else fits inside the box, tights, hair items, warmers, etc...
It even has little hooks on the side that I can hang her boas on as well!
I rate it an "A", and love that it is lavender and not pink!!!
