When I recently attended my local blogging conference, Blog On, I came across the Belle’s Musical Tea Party Cart and thought it was a lovely toy. I love Beauty And The Beast, it’s one of my favourite Disney films and Holly chose to dress up as Belle at her last birthday party. We have been trying out the toy for a couple of weeks now so I thought I’d share my thoughts.
1. It’s a lovely looking toy – a large cart featuring a tray with a spinning top where Mrs Potts, Chip and another cup sit, two spoons, a shelf underneath, wheels and a handle to push the tray around. The cart has a button on the front that when pushed plays “Be Our Guest.”
2. It’s quite thin plastic so I would say if your child is a little heavy handed you may need to take care, although it did need a bit of pushing down on to get it to fit together and it took that well.
3. There are lots of opportunities for play – my two set it up with Holly’s dolls and had a tea party, hosted by Anna and Captain America, which included filling Mrs Pots with juice and, of course, proceeding to spill it everywhere (although I should point out it does say not to be used with liquids, but we didn’t have any problems)!
4. It pushed really easily, in fact Jack was running around the house with it, over carpet, our long-pile rug and lino, serving Holly when she rang, and it was absolutely fine.
5. Currently for sale for £49.99 (although I believe it has been on at £60), I do feel it has quite a high price tag. It is a large toy but apart from the music and tease there isn’t a huge amount to it that warrants the higher price tag.
It’s a lovely toy for any Disney Princess fan and will bring lots of fun to playtime, it quite expensive in my opinion, though.
