When Target was having its major clearance sale last July, which I now like to affectionately call, "The Best Sale Ever," I picked up a bunch of Tech Decks at varying prices.
There were five different SK8 Park versions available and some of them I got multiple copies of. Originally priced at $9.99, I got 2 at $6.68, then the next week 2 at $4.98 and the following week 3 at $2.98. I found the larger Hollywood High version at Ross for $12.99.
The small ones come with a skateboard, a full ramp, a half section ramp and four connectors (2 long, 2 short). I wanted to use the yellow one as a handicapped ramp, but the rise of it is too high. It's more suited for a delivery area slope.
The big one comes completely assembled with four skateboards. The "No Skateboarding" sign is only on one side of the stairs and apparently some miscreant youth has crossed out "skateboarding" for you.
The fence is attached by little holes in the side of the stairs and it just pops off with some tugging.
I have to say I think it looks better as a fence in my house's garden than as part of the stairs.
The back section of the stairs can be unassembled easily. You can use them as separate wholes if you like or reconnect them.
The SK8 Parks can have many configurations. The first photo, top left is what I've done for the steps to my house to give more of a landing for the dolls to stand on. So, my stairs aren't actually flush to the door, instead I made a cutaway so the second rise slides underneath the door.
The next set of photos will show you step clearance for different 1:6 doll feet. I'm not using any wires to hold them up, but each doll has one leg strategically placed against the side wall to help them balance.
Liv feet. In flat shoes she could not put one foot directly on the step below, or perhaps I gave up too quickly. About 3/8 of her foot overhangs the step, but it's not so much that she cant balance.
Barbie feet. These stairs are perfect for Fashionista heels. There is even extra room on the step and she was able to put one foot below the next.
Male feet. There was no way I could get both male feet on the steps. He had to put one foot on the landing and the other foot is on the step at an angle. Even then, more than half of his foot is off the step. It's doable, but hard to balance. He's wearing Liv boots, so Ken or Bieber may be even more difficult.
Liv feet. The large stairs are really too small in scale to be adequately believable (unless you work with smaller dolls or action figures, which I do ^_^).
However, once again, you might get away with it if you are using Barbie feet. This Fashionista has one leg against the railing to help her back leg balance, but really, no "human" railing would be that low. You could always pull the railings out, but I'm not about to.
Once broken down, all 8 sets will fit into two of the large bins from my storage towers. I like the various ways you can mix and match them and although made from plastic, they are rather sturdy. The railings on the SK8 Parks have a nice clank to them as though they are actually a metal alloy, which they could be, for all I know. The Hollywood High railing is lightweight plastic.
I'm going to recommend the SK8 Parks (especially if you find them on clearance) as they are a finely made product. However, I'm not going to recommend the Hollywood High if you want it for 1:6 scale. If you work in a smaller scale then it's a very nicely detailed product for the cost.
