Have you heard about VTech Flipsies yet? I had heard a little bit about them, but I didn’t know a whole lot about them until I was sent the VTech® Flipsies™ Sandy’s House & Ocean Cruiser playset to review. I wasn’t sure what to think about it since it seemed very girly and my daughter is still a baby. I figured we would check it out and then I would save it for her when she got older. However, once we set it up and my boys got their hands on it, it became a whole other story! I couldn’t believe how excited my daughter and 3 year old were when the box came!
VTech® Flipsies™ Sandy’s House & Ocean Cruiser playset
- Flipsies Sandy’s House and Ocean Cruiser is a 2-in-1 doll playset that transforms from a beautiful beach house where she can spend time with her friends to an ocean cruiser that she can use to explore ocean life.
- Place Sandy on the eight MagicPoint locations on the dollhouse playset or other MagicPoint locations on Flipsies playsets (each sold separately) and she’ll respond with playful phrases unique to her own personality.
- Sandy magically gets to live out her dream of becoming a marine biologist through cute outfits, wigs and doll accessories that can be shared with all Flipsies dolls (additional Flipsies sold separately).
- Press the charm on Sandy’s doll necklace to see it light-up and to experience her friendly personality; 21 doll accessories include wigs, clothes, a dolphin, binoculars and more
- Requires 3 LR44 batteries (batteries included for demo purposes only; new batteries recommended for regular use); intended for ages 4 to 9 years.
I had no idea how much fun Flipsies could be! First off, Sandy is this cute little doll that comes with some great accessories! She has two different wigs, two tops, and other fun accessories to go with her house. She also has a necklace and if you press the charm, it will light-up and she talks. Just the doll itself is a lot of fun!
Sandy’s House & Ocean Cruiser playset is so cute! It’s a boat and it has a place for Sandy to sit and drive the boat as well as a pool, slide, and other fun things. When you get tired of playing with that, just flip open the side of the boat and it turns into a house! It has a bathtub, sink, kitchen, fridge, TV, bed, table, and more! The best part about the playset is that there are MagicPoint locations where you can put Sandy (or any of her friends that are sold separately) on and she’ll talk and say something about where she is at. It’s so cute and a lot of fun!
My boys LOVE this fun playset and we are going to be ordering more Flipsies dolls so both my boys can play with it at the same time. It entertains them for hours and since there is so many ways to play with it, it’s a toy that is never boring! There are just a few things I didn’t like about it. There is a pink railing along the ship that is very flimsy and is constantly coming out. I got tired of my boys asking for me to keep putting it back on, so I used a hot glue gun and glued it in. The other thing that I didn’t like and I think they shouldn’t have included is the tiny little silverware. It’s cute, but not needed and gets lost so easily. Ours are already lost and that worries me because I have a baby around that could swallow them. Those are the only negatives I have about it and really they are no big deal and would not keep me from buying it.
