Since then, the line has grown to include many fun playsets, including the latest addition, the Weekend Getaway Hotel. What makes Pinypon dolls stand out from all the rest are its mix and match possibilities. Swap their adorable heads, mid-sections or feet and hair! Plus Pinypon’s attention to detail makes every playset an interactive adventure. Tucked inside the Hotel are 50 (!) accessories for imaginative play — Pinypon friends can drive up in their convertible and check-in to a hotel. Once unpacked, they might put their toes in the pool or relax on the terrace.”

 My Review

 As any mother will tell you, toys accumulate very fast and those little pieces of sets almost always get lost.I was delighted to see that the Pinypon Weekend Getaway Hotel was not only a really great toy, but it also provided easy storage. Your child can open up the hotel and use the many accessories for pretend play. Once they are done and ready to clean up, all they have to do is fold it up, pick it up by the convenient handle and put it away. No stray pieces to be lost or misplaced any longer as this toy has created the perfect solution! Something else that stood out to me about the Pinpon products was that all of the people can easily be taken apart so that you can mix and match their pieces. This allows your child to give their little characters new hair and outfits with ease. I can’t tell you what a relive this method is because when those little polly pockets were the must have item, i was going crazy trying to change their outfits for my daughter. I just love toys that can allow your child to play independently and not have to rely on their parents to do the fun stuff for them.This was another fantastic Pinypon product that we could not find a single complaint about. Once again, the price is simply unbeatable when you consider all of the products that are included.
