Manufacturer’s Description: Welcome to Zahramay Falls, a magical world where genies live, work and play! These cute, collectible mini figures put Shimmer, Shine and all their friends right in the palm of your little genie’s hand. Little genies can create the most magical adventures with this beautiful playset inspired by Shimmer and Shine’s genie palace!
Review: We were sent this Shimmer & Shine Playset to review, and both Lydia & Georgie have been having a lot of fun with it! They are fans of the Nick Jr show and really love pretending to go on all sorts of genie adventures.
This playset has plenty of features and if your child collects toys from the Teenie Genies range, then they can play with them all together as it has lots of spots to fit the little characters on.
The girls favourite feature about this set is the neat “flying” that the genies can do thanks to some neat magnet trickery. Pop a genie at the bottom of the wall in the living room, push down on the “floating” pillow, and the genie flies up to the mirror room. This works with the special Shimmer & Shine genies included in the playset, and there is also a special chair that you can use with any of the other toys from the Teenie Genies range to make them fly too.
The top of the Genie Palace has a large pink gem which opens up & fits both Shimmer & Shine inside. Rotate the gem, and the magic mirror on the wall below spins, showing two different people – their friend Leah, and Princess Samira. There is also a magic carpet which can be spun around the top of the palace, and fits both genies on.
Included in the playset is the palace furniture, including two beds, a table ready for a tea party, and a bathtub. The girls have had a great time arranging and rearranging the furniture and playing make-believe Shimmer & Shine games with the playset.
I like the way you can store the two special floating genies away securely in the gem on the top of the playset, and the whole thing is of the good quality I would expect from a Fisher-Price product.
The little pegs that you slot any additional genies you have onto make it the fun easily expandable – by buying another Teenie Genie toy for their collection you get more play value from the original set, and the children’s interest in it will be revived which each additional character they collect.
5 stars for this lovely toy – it’s perfect for any little fans of Shimmer and Shine!
