Hi everyone!  :wave:

This is my first attempt at doing a review, so if it's not very good.... well, be kind.  ;)

Here are the front and back views of the box.

All in all I really like this set. It has pretty good play value and looks impressive, but took almost no time to put together. It has lots of accessories:

a working shower:


which has a hole that allows the water to drain back into the pool

Here is the bikini lady, who btw has a hair style that is new this year. I really like it.

and a back view: 


And here are the kids from the set. All three kids have new style hair, and even the baby is in a swimsuit!

Now, I did have a few complaints about this set. The first one is probably not a big deal for most, just an observation. The pattern on the bottom of the pool is not a sticker, but is actually printed on.

A much bigger complaint is the way the hot tub/ baby pool and the grass connect to the side of the pool. They have notches that slide together:


but the problem is, they do not fit tightly, and everytime you move it at all they come apart, and then you have to stop and put them back together. And if you have water in the pool, you are likely to end up spilling some of it.  :(

The other complaint involves the sandals for the klickys. One of the child sized pairs is sort of a purple color, and they are very inky. The klickys and sandals were all in one bag together, and as I was taking the klickys out, I couldn't figure out why they all had purplish marks on their skin. Fortunately, the marks rubbed easily off the klickys. However, the mom's yellow sandals were stained by this purple ink.

Here you can see how the purple sandals look sort of inky. They still keep rubbing purple off on my hands when I handle them. I would be interested to know if this is an isolated case, or if others have had this same problem.

Well, that's about it. Here are a few more pics of the klickys enjoying the water!

Great review
Those curved steps are interesting, they might be useful as risers for a choir at Christmas time.
