My Life As Mini Ballet Studio Review
Hello everyone! Today I'll be reviewing the My Life As Mini Ballet Studio I got from my brother for my birthday (Thanks brother!). You'll also see the mini dolls that entered the family this holiday season! So let's get to it!
This set includes:
Piano and piano bench
Ballet outfit and dance bag
Locker and hanger
Let's start with the Ballet Studio. The Ballet Studio is made of a thick, sturdy plastic. The floor clicks into the back wall of the studio and the side walls you just push into the floor.
The side walls have windows,
And the back is detailed white plastic.
The purple roof is detailed to look like wood and roof tiles, there's also a molded on sign with a sticker on it that says "Ballet Studio".
There's a little handle on top because it turns into a carrying case!
All you have to do is flip up the floor and click it to the side walls... The only problem is that for some reason it won't click, so it will stay there when it's sitting on the floor,
But when you pick it up the floor falls back down. Now this doesn't bother really bother me that much but I thought you should know.
When you flip up the floor there's a sticker, there is also one on the inside of the back wall as well.
Next we have the piano and piano bench!
Mini Josefina: A piano! I love playing the piano!
The piano bench is good thick plastic. It comes to just below the knee and fits one mini doll.
The piano comes to Mini Josefina's shoulders and has little foot peddles at the bottom, sadly they don't move.
Then it has molded on keys.
I really like the size of the piano and how it looks with a mini doll playing it.
Here we have the radio!
Sadly the American Girl Minis can't hold this without some handy dandy help from their humans, but I think the My Life As Minis can.
It's a light purple color and the handle that goes up and down. I think it looks a little big but the stereo at my dance school is pretty big so maybe that's why.
Now moving on to the ballet outfit and dance bag!
The dance bag is just a simple bag with two handles, the corners are painted purple and the ballet outfit fits inside.
The leotard is pretty nice, it's made out of a stretchy fabric and fits the doll nicely.
The skirt is a semi see though material,
It is also attached to the leotard.
(Uh excuse the paint speckled on my thumb, I was crafting today)
It Velcro's in the back.
There are a pair leg warmers (I don't why but for some reason one leg warmer look a lot shorter than the other, but they really aren't that different in size) and a pair of ballet slippers.
The slippers are really big on AG minis though, I would think they'd fit MLA minis.
Here we have the locker, it's about 1/2 inch taller than the mini,
and has a hook and hanger.
The cute tiny little hanger comes off the hook, but the leotard doesn't stay on the hanger.
But Mini Molly's sweater does! And I think other mini clothes will fit too.
Or you can hang the dance bag on the hook!
And last but not least, the ballet bar!!! Ok, the bar slides a little on the floor but I love it for posing my mini dolls!
Mini Molly: Oh yeah! Katie only wishes she could do this!
Katie: *Rolls eyes*
Mini Molly: You've got to do lots of ankle strengthening exercises when you're a pointe dancer.
Mini Molly: Woo Hoo! Nailed it!
LOL this picture was inspired by a little boy at my dance school. We were getting ready to start dance class, so my ballet teacher was going to close the sliding glass door of our classroom when a little boy, who I think was about two, came over.
"What are you going to do with that?" The little boy asked, pointing to the ballet barre in the center of the room.
"That's a ballet barre," my teacher explained.
"Oh, are you going to jump over it?" He asked.
"Oh, are you going to go under it?" He asked him again
"Nope, why don't you watch and see?" He said to the little boy before closing the door.
I just about died laughing! XD
Three to five minis fit at the barre nicely, depending on what position they are in.
Overall, I really love this set and I would totally recommend it to you guys :) Thanks for reading guys! I really hope you enjoyed the post, come back soon for the intro to the new dolls that joined the family this holiday and birthday season! Who do you think it is? (Don't tell them Jewel! XD) Let me know in the comments!
Hello, I am Mini Molly, one of the newest minis in the ADU family! And you won't believe this but I risk my life for this blog, for I have been attacked by huge, hairy beasts!
"Oh no! There's one right there!!
"Oh no! Do not eat me! Please!"
"Ahhhhhh! It's trying to squish me like a bug! HELP!!"
Mini Addy: "AHHHHH!!!"
"No! I shall never let you hurt my friend! I shall conquer you! You uncivilized beast!"
"AHHHHHH!!! I'm slipping!"
Katie: Mini Molly stop it! That is a cat, not a uncivilized beast!"
"Oh, uh hehe, sorry!"
Have an awesome day everyone!
