Oooh! I like that you were able to figure out where to touch the screen to make the functions work. We have an iPad mini, and we did download the app, but I don't think it will fully work inside the console. I can see trying to build one of my own that fits the mini.
Do the records play (spin and make noise) without an iPad?
I could also see the possibility of making a variety of black and white pics of 'TV show' snippets to glue onto a piece of foam core so they can be seen through the TV.
My 7 year old loves to play with this set! She also likes to play dress up and put on makeup for play too, and not her dolls can do the same! She really plays with it a lot. The rubber bands were a little too small to twist and get into Isabelle's thick hair, but my daughter immediately put them on Isabelle's wrist like a bracelet, the way she does-and they look adorable!
The nail stickers didn't last on the doll, fell off within a few hours. Wish it came with 10 sheets of nail stickers and none of the other sticker sheets.
Welsh the top came off the lipgloss! Love the mini spray water bottle and the mini pick! So cute!
