Comments about Mattel 1001134 Barbie Beach Party Pool Playset:
I'm sure if I had received the correct product, my review would be good. But I received the wrong product - and then HORRIBLE customer service to try and sort it out. Called the customer service number and they said I could exchange the item at a local store - and the correct item was in stock. Got to the store and they did not have the correct item, so I asked them to return/refund my original purchase. But they would not refund the shipping cost I had paid. They said shipping was not refunded just because I no longer wanted the product. I tried to explain that I DID want the product, but the product was not available, so therefore I should not pay a shipping cost. I was told I had to call customer service back and have them give me a return label to ship it back. Totally illogical!! I will not be shopping at Toys R Us again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This little pool set is adoreable. The bright colors are very cute. The palm tree with the bird that comes off so she can play with barbie is perfect. my daughter loves playing with it. it didn't take me long to figure out how to put it together. i've dealt with much more complex things. we haven't had any problems with things coming or falling apart, and my daughter has been enjoying it pretty much every day since christmas morning. for the price i don't think it was bad at all.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Kind of Flimsy

My daughter received this for her 3rd Birthday. It was a bit difficult to put together but aside from that it didn't last long. Almost immediately the palm tree came apart and the lifeguard chair is constanly popping apart also. I'm glad I didn't pay for it but still it's disappointing. I wouldn't buy this for a gift for my daughter's friends because it is so flimsy.
Good but few complantes

Horrible product. I returned it!
By Mother of 3
from Cedar Rapids, IA
After reading the previous reviews I decided my 5 year old would enjoy this pool for her b-day. It was easy enough to put together, however, within 2 minutes of my 3 year old and 5 year old using it, my 5 year old came running saying "Mommy there is water everywhere. It went whoosh all over." After cleaning up the mess I told my 3 year old she had most likely leaned her arm on the side of the pool while placing a Barbie inside and not to do it again. After 5 more minutes, my 3 year old came running saying that she accidentally did it again. At that point, I decided that the product is not really for 3+ year olds and packed it up and returned it to the store. The water would not stay in the pool. It is made of a flimsy silicone material and all a child has to do is lean their arm against the edge of the pool and the water comes running out.

My niece loved this pool! It takes a while to put together, but it's a fun toy for the kids. I purchased the beach barbie-- My niece loved swimming with Barbie.
Great pool for Barbie

About Me Parent of Two or More Children
My daughter has been wanting this pool for quite some time and just received it for her 6th birthday. The pool comes disassembled and unfortunately, I did not find the assembly to be simple. The soft plastic pool fits into the rim of the pink pool top and you have to afix the pool onto tabs, and then clip it into place with the clips that come with the set. Seems simple in theory, but trying to slide the pool into the rim, get it hooked in and clipped on took me well over 30 minutes. But, that's truly my only complaint about this product. The other items that require assembly (the lifeguard chair and the palm tree) were simple enough to snap together. Once I had all of the components put together, my daughter immediatley filled up the pool, grabbed her Barbies, and happily played. This set seems very sturdy. Even with the pool filled to the top, you can still carry it by the top and it does not feel like the pool will slip out of the rim. Once emptied, the pool is simple to wipe out with a dry cloth or paper towel. The colors are bright and cheerful and the included accessories (binoculars, a beverage, a bottle of sunscreen, a boogie board, and a cockatiel that can clip onto the top of the palm tree or the back of the lifeguard chair) add to the fun. The set also comes with a set of stairs for the pool, which, like the other reviewer stated, does not really fit over the side of the pool very well. I agree that a slide would have added to the fun, but my daughter seems totally happy with it as is.

The Surfs Up Pool Set is the one that my daughter really wanted. But I bought this pool instead because the reviews that I read for the Barbie Surfs Up Pool Set were really bad. So I was afraid to waste my money on that one. While I was at the store debating which pool to buy, I decided to open up the boxes of each pool and take a look at them. I could see why the reviews for the Surfs Up Set might be bad. There is nothing for the pool to hook into to hold it up. Where as with this pool the sides hook into the ring that goes around the top of the pool. So seeing that I decided on this pool. And I must say that after putting it together I find it to be extremely sturdy. I can't see any way of it ever falling apart or leaking. Although my daughter wanted the other one she was none the less excited to get this one. She filled it up to the top as soon as I'd set it up. No problems at all with any water leaking out. It's big and there is plenty of room in it. It was very easy to set up. It only took minutes. I think the pool is great and worth the money. However the reason why I am only giving it four stars is because I wish it at least came with a slide. It does come with a life guard chair. It also comes with stairs for the pool. The stairs don't really hang well onto the pool. It's like the handles on the stairs were not made wide enough to quite fit over the edge of the pool to hang them there. But over all if you are looking for a sturdy pool that won't fall apart or leak then this is the pool for you.
