Cleo is going to model for us today.
At 70% off, you can get this for $6.30. Can I just say that I really detest TRU's new price labeling system? Don't make me remember what percentage a color stands for and then have to do math on top of it. If it's $7 just say so!
Out of the box you get all these pieces. I'm leaving the Squinkies and ramps encased in their plastic because they are the only things I'm not keeping.
The set breaks down quite easily. The two sides pull outward. The black shelves pull downward. The yellow inserts will have to be pulled out with pliers, but cover them with a cloth first is you want to keep them. The wrestling ring is held with four screws that are easy to get to.
Once detached, the wrestling ring is three separate pieces. Without the ropes I think it makes a cool step or just use the flat top as a wall decoration or,
pair it with a base and try it as a table in a retro café or something. My base here is the vase stand from the Dora Explorer Art Room.
The columns on either end have tops that lift off for the Squinkie balls to go through and there's a panel in front of the columns that slides up so the balls will come out. I think one of those mini lights could be placed inside these for effect.
Even though there are raised knobs on the shelves, you don't have to limit yourself to only putting jewelry on here. I tried shoes, desserts, folded clothes... it all works! Just stick your stuff between the knobs and it looks great.
If you keep the background insert, it also looks cool as a DJ booth!
I like this set a lot and think it can have multiple uses in many settings, not just for fashion or food type stuff. I could see this in a garage/motorcycle type shop as well. The set itself is very well made. It's a good density to be handled by a little kid and nicely detailed. I got the only two left at the TRU closes to me, so happy hunting.
Edited to add more photos for those interested in the background for DJ purposes:
It's taped on the sides so you can open it flat to get the full graphics. If it's left as a box, Cleo can stand in the center, but not fully on the sides. If she's outside of the box there's plenty of room for photos.
