4857 Summer House
« on: March 03, 2011, 02:52:01 »
Ok everybody, i promised a review of this set, so here we go. I will warn you though that I'm having serious problems with my camera, so not only is the quality of some of the pics kind of bad, but I wasn't able to take all the pictures I wanted to take. So when I get my new camera, I may add some.

To start off with, here is a picture of the house from the front.


And a close-up of the family.

The little boy's sandals are part of his feet; the rest are removable.

Here we have the furniture that came with this set.

You'll notice that we have an indoor table and chairs and an outdoor table and chairs. This is one thing I find a little odd about this set; the whole focus of it seems to be on cooking and eating! There is no living room in the house, no couch, or outdoor lounge chairs, yet we have two dining sets, a full kitchen inside, and a grill for outdoors.

In line with this, here are all the cooking/eating tools that came with the set, including two sets of four plates.

There were four green cups included, but one was missing when I took the picture. The egg in the bottom of the pan is a sticker.
And here we have the food that came with the set, quite a variety.

Interestingly, all the cans and jars, all the food with stickers, came with the stickers already on, rather than on a sheet for you to apply yourself, the way they usually do.

Here are some close-ups of the bathroom interior. I love the 1-inch tiles!  :love:



Notice there are lots of shelves in the bathroom, so you could add lots of accessories here.

Here are the bathroom accessories that came with it:

And now the loft/bedroom:



And the things for the bedroom shelves. Not very much there, but there is a lot of shelf space where you could add books, etc.

Well, that's about it for the interior of the house. Like I said earlier, there is no living room, and there is only one bedroom, which is rather cramped! I have to say, I don't think I would find a stay in this house very relaxing at all.  :lol:

One last thing, I really love the new plants that are on the trellis.

This section came wrapped around the trellis and held in place with a rubber band in the box, presumably so it would have the right shape.

And here are a couple of pics of how the plant attaches to the trellis, which I found interesting.



Well, I guess that's about it!

I really like this set. the kid and the father are very cool clickies!

I wonder.... is there any fridge and any Playmo kitchen????? I mean I could understand there is no fridge in the victorian serie, but what about the rest?

Thanx bb for the review.... I would get this one!

i think there are in most of the modern houses. That's something I forgot to point out, that there is no fridge.

Yeah, I just checked, and these two sets both have refrigerators:
