Guidecraft is a 46 year old company that specializes in educational toys and furnishings. Guidecraft products allow children’s imaginations to grow, via education toys and fun whimiscal painted designs.
My children own several products from Guidecraft, including the Pirate Table & Chairs, Kiddy Rockers, Princess Deluxe Rocking Chair, and Doll Buggy. Every Guidecraft product my children have are used often, especially the Rockers.
When Guidecraft asked me review an item from the doll furniture collection, I was really excited! My youngest daughter loves her dolls and did not own a buggy, so I knew she would enjoy playing with it. We decided to pick the Espresso finish doll buggy, just because it matched her room decor better than the natural finish. The doll buggy is designed for children 3+.
It arrived in a large box within a mailing box. The box the buggy was packaged in, was pink & brown and showed a young girl using the buggy with photos of the buggy in different angles.
Inside the box were easy to follow instructions, the buggy wheels & rubber tires, buggy bedding (to keep baby comfy) and smooth Espresso finished wood slabs used to form the buggy and handle.
The instructions are well written and easy to follow. My husband and I were able to put the entire doll buggy together in about 15 minutes. Even without his help, I would have been able to put it together. It was a breeze!
Once it was together, you could tell it was going to be a pretty sturdy toy. The wood was nice and solid and not flimsy at all. When the buggy was completely assembled it was sturdy and did not wobble at all. We tested it on the different flooring in our home and it glided across the tile, carpet and bamboo flooring with ease.
Before it was even put together my daughter waited patiently to take it for a spin, so when she was able to get her hands on it, she was off! She was really excited to have a new toy for her doll’s, since we did not have any doll furniture of any sort.
For the last several weeks my little one has played with the doll buggy and has enjoyed it very much. The doll bed in the buggy is pretty big and will hold large dolls or several dolls. The handle has remained sturdy and the buggy too. The only issue I have noticed is the tires coming off track when the weight in the buggy is to heavy. A few times my daughter put several dolls in the buggy and when she pushed it across the carpet, the tires slid off. Now, it’s an easy fix, just pop it back on.
I think this is yet another great product made by Guidecraft! The only thing I would like to see changed are the tires somehow being attached to the wheels to prevent them from sliding off.
This doll buggy retails for $70. I know it may sound steep for a doll stroller or toy, but it is a quality toy that will last! It’s well worth the purchase when you consider it’s made from sturdy materials that will hold up over time.
