Blume Skyrocket Secret Surprise Garden Playset
Updated: Mar 22
We would give this 4.5 out of five stars; and the price is amazingly good for the quality!
Blume, where outrageous grows. That is their tag-line, and it delivered — mostly. We loved the toy and Kimiko still plays with it daily. The watering to open/grow the doll is a very neat concept and Kimiko loved it, as you can see in the video. The toy is well made and stands up to the abuse of a 3-year old! The miniature parts and accessories are in abundance and work very well with the dolls allowing her to dress and accessorize them. We love the fact that the blooming can be done more than once (aside from the watering aspect - which is admittedly the best part).
There are a couple of cons that come into play. First, this is not any easy toy to open — they use absurd amounts of tape to seal the boxes and the parts! We are certain that there are easier ways to do this - or at least provide a pull tab based tape solution. Second, the water play is a great concept, but the watering can under the lid really is not effective.
All in, this one kept her entertained for a very long time and continues to do so — and the fact that the doll’s flower head dresses come off have made her enjoy constantly popping them off and on!
