4.0 out of 5 stars Solar Powered wings and a little planter,
This review is from: Barbie Thumbelina Solar Garden Play Set (Toy)This is meant to go near or on a window so it can receive sunlight. The solar panels in the front create energy to power Thumbelina's wings and make them move back and forth "fluttering". The set comes with a planter - part compacted dirt disk and part food. You put the seeds in the top and it sprouds Alyssum flowers. Very little care is needed for the plant part.
In all, the movement of the wings is cute and the 'garden' part is well thought out for younger kids. They can enjoy watching the planter sprout its real plants.
3.0 out of 5 stars Would not buy it again.,
This review is from: Barbie Thumbelina Solar Garden Play Set (Toy)This was not as nice as I had hoped for. It's not horrible, but I would not buy it again. It was a gift from the Easter Bunny, and I went ahead and gave it to daughter (age 6), but we didn't keep it very long before we threw it away.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to get your kids to start learning about planting.,

This review is from: Barbie Thumbelina Solar Garden Play Set (Toy)I got this for my 5 year old and she loves it. She keeps it at her window and takes care of whatever it is she's growing in there. We've had this now for 4 months and it's still working. Thumbelina bobs around back and forth through the solar powered panel and so far it's still going. Definitely a cheap little fun way to get your kids into planting.
