Chelsea Flipping Pup pool playset review.

Monday 27 October 2014

For this review, Liv was very lucky to be sent a Chelsea Flipping Pup pool play set. Which contains everything Chelsea and her 3 puppies need for a fun filled day at the pool.

For those of you who don't already know, Chelsea is Barbies little Sister. She was introduced in 2011 and is around 6 years old. She is very popular with younger Girls and can be seen in the programme "Barbie: Life in the Dream House" alongside her big Sister and other family members.

Chelsea comes dressed in a lovely swimming costume, duck rubber ring and holding a small dolphin in her hand. On further inspection she can also be used as a squirter! Stand her in the water and squeeze the rubber ring to suck up some water then squeeze again and it squirts out of the dolphin - Liv thought this was AMAZING and calls it magic - *soaks Mummy*

The lovely Pups can also "jump" off the diving board by pressing a lever making a lovely splash in the pool. 

What's in the box? (Image top left):
  • A slide
  • A ladder
  • 2 crossbars
  • A swimming pool
  • A diving board
  • 2 squirters pups
  • A flipping pup
  • A Chelsea doll
  • A boat for the pups to use on the slide
It was very easy to assemble, simply attach the crossbars and steps to the side, clip the diving board to the right side of the pool and the slide to the left side. Voila! Ready to go!

Two of the puppies are water squirters, while with a couple of easy steps (pop the lever up on the bottom of the slide and tuck the puppies legs under) the third pup actually does a mid air flip at the end of the slide! 

As you can see, Liv genuinely loves this play set and can't wait to take the pups and Chelsea in the bath with her. She doesn't need any help at all while playing with it which is brilliant as so many things are fiddly and she gets quite easily frustrated if she can't do something by herself. It was also lovely to be able to open the box and start playing - no batteries or extra accessories needed buying before she could get stuck in.

I would definitely recommend this toy to Family and Friends. Why not pop on over to Barbie.co.uk to catch up with the latest with Barbie and her pet pals. Do pop back and let me know how you get on.

This toy is recommended for age 3+ and the RRP is £22.99.

  1. This is lovely, exactly what I would have wanted to have as a child x

  2. Well, I never knew Barbie had a little sister. You live and you learn! My daughter is now 9 and while she loved her Baby Annabel she never got in to Barbie. We bought her a lovely Barbie Aeroplane which I thought brilliant but she hardly played with it. If you kids are in to Barbie I can see they would love this. Tx

  3. I know of barbie but was more of an Action Man kind of guy :o)

  4. I never ever knew Barbie had a little sister, wow!

  5. I remember my Daughter having something similar when she was little, sadly at 18 I think she is beyond Barbie now!

  6. I know my girls would adore this. They already have a few Chelsea dolls and this would be ideal to accompany them.

  7. Looks like a lovely toy and the price isn't so scary too.
    I like the colours of it.

  8. I didn't know that Barbie has a younger sister. You learn something new every day. I love the idea of the puppy doing a flip in mid-air.

  9. Lovely to see her enjoying her new toy. F is more into I tonsure at the moment. X

  10. I don't know much about these products with all boys but best get learning now I have a niece. Thank you for the review.

  11. Eliza is sitting over my shoulder asking for this for xmas!

  12. I would have loved this as a child, puppys and water. Win win!

  13. This looks so cute! A bit of fun and messy play.

  14. Great toy. I can see the joy on your daughter's face.

  15. This is so cute! I used to love Barbies, I remember my friend had all her sisters and I was so jealous of her skipper doll!

  16. Cute. My daughter has grown out of these really, although I'm sure she'd play with this :)

  17. These are so cute a little bit like the polly pocket sets that were once so popular.

  18. This looks like a nice little playset.
