Since I had a relatively easy time making the video where I asked for a doll's identification, I thought I'd try another one! It has voice narration as well as subtitles. Here's the actual dialog from the video and a few pics if you're unable to watch it:
"Because lack of space is always an issue, I've been taking a cue from the way My Fancy Life and Gloria package their play sets, which is very compactly.
The more brand name sets, like Mattel, Bratz, etc., have an excessive amount of packaging. So, I've started consolidating my sets by breaking them down and putting multiples in one box.
I'll either put a number to tell me how many sets are in a box or a graphic from the discarded packaging, so I'll know what's what.
While I'm doing this, I'm also going through and removing all the small accessories. I want to organize these into little storage bins to make it easier to find stuff, like so.
As I consolidate the sets, I'm also testing them out, seeing how they work and you know... playing with them. ^__^
Eventually, I got to the MiWorld sets.
This is Sprinkles and DQ. First impressions, I thought they were pretty cute. They seem well made and easy to put together. The colors aren't garish... or pink. They are simple pieces and not overly complicated. Even though the material is thin, it feels rather sturdy.
And then I tried to put the Sprinkles table and chair together. At first, the connections seemed to be easy. This small notch goes here. This larger notch fits there. Aaand they snap into place... but keep watching it. [chair shifts] You saw that move, right? I thought, "Hmm, let me try the table." Its pieces only fit one way too. Short end for the top and long end for the base. You poke it. And then you plop it. Get on there. There you go. [chair's leg falls off] Oops. I take a closer look to see why the leg wont stay put. It fits snuggly and nothing is blocking it. But watch. It just pops right out! What the heck?!
While I was fiddling with other stuff, the table fell over for no reason. I put it back together and watch... [table top leans over] *LOL* I try again. Will you fit! Okay, you think it's on but it's not. Just keep watching. [table top leans over] Really? Seriously? *scoff* Like... Whatever, man.
Other than the fact that you have to superglue it together if you want to use the table and chairs, it's got some very nice pieces... I guess."
