My lass o'mine, who be almost 9, and her me heartys be always playing wit' them. I think they play wit' th' babies more than th' 18" lusty plastic lasses.
My lass o'mine bought th' tub wit' her own pieces o' eight. She loves it. th' little accessories be bonny. I'm sure ye could find another tub similair for a little less, but this be what my lass o'mine wanted.
As much playtime as my lass o'mine and her me heartys have gotten out o' th' items I would say they be definitely worth it for her. I guess it depends on how much yer child already plays wit' poopy. Over here it's a daily occurence.
