Introducing: miWorld by Jakks Pacific
While finishing up last minute Christmas shopping, my mom and I stumbled upon a new toy line that is pretty exciting! Long time readers of the blog will know I have a weakness for tiny, realistic looking doll house/Re-Ment like common day things. miWorld (pronounced ‘my’ world) is a line of small ‘rooms’ based on popular stores, such as Claire’s, Opi Nail Salon and Dairy Queen.
There are starter and deluxe rooms, as well as expansion packs. Each starter room, when put together, is 7.5 inches wide and includes 2 walls, 1 floor, 1 sticker sheet and over 25 accessories. They are priced around $15.00 and offer three room choices: Sprinkles Cupcakes, OPI Nail Salon and Dairy Queen Restaurant.
Deluxe rooms, when put together, are 15 inches wide and includes 4 walls, 2 floor pieces, 1 doll figure, 1 sticker sheet and over 50 accessories. Priced around $30.00, there are two options: Claire’s Jewelry and Accessory Store and Sweet Factory Candy Shop.
Besides these completed rooms, you can purchase a ‘shop girl’ for $5.00 and collector accessory packs at $3.00 that have 6-8 super tiny, realistic mini accessories that match various starter or deluxe sets.
Now, what I really like about these is that even though each is its own room, you can connect the rooms teogether, even build on top of other sets! That makes displaying them seem far easier. Currently, these are exclusive to Walmart, but after December, they should be everywhere toys are sold.
I think there’s promise in this line. I can’t say I’ve seen them outside of the box yet, but honestly, I like them! I love that these aren’t just random ‘generic’ rooms, but actual storefronts. I also love that they should stack and connect to each other so you can make your own little shopping mall!
miWorld’s should be great for photo backdrops, assuming the doll is the proper size! I’m a horrible judge of doll proportions to doll sets unless I have both in front of me, so as of right now, I’m not quite sure what doll size would fit best in these. I know the scale is too small for Barbie and probably too big for Nano Freya, but that’s as good as I can say right now! For more pictures, check out the miWorld website.
