Dolly Review: MiWorld Sprinkles Cupcakes

I’m a huge fan of MiWorld and have been since they debuted last year.  This Christmas, I received a new MiWorld room, Sprinkles Cupcakes.  I’ve never actually heard of Sprinkles before, so I can’t say much about how this miniature set compares to the real life store.  I can, however, give you a sneak peek into what it looks like and how it compares to past MiWorld sets!

Sprinkles is considered a ‘starter set’, not a deluxe set.  That means, it is one room as opposed to two rooms.  Sprinkles has a very colorful back drop.  The walls are decorated in lots of bright colors.  One wall features merchandise, like t-shirts.  The second wall features the menu board and 2D cabinets holding supplies. The backdrops fit well into the base.  Before you place the wall into the thin cardstock floor panel, remember to place down the thin pink floor piece.  The walls attach with a very tiny L shaped piece of plastic.  It’s very easy to lose, but, unlike past sets, seems to stay in place!

As far as large furniture pieces, this set has a few.  The biggest accessory is the display case.  It comes in multiple pieces, so you’ll have to put it together. I’ve found that mine stays together well and looks pretty neat when all is said and done!  It holds accessories well, too!

The second piece you have to put together is the table and chair set.  The table and chair aren’t the best accessories I’ve seen in a MiWorld set.  They seem flimsy.  My table is just slightly off due to pieces not fitting properly.  I love the ‘peanut butter cup’ look to the table top, though!

Besides the large set pieces, this set includes a number of smaller accessories.  Inside are twelve cupcakes, two t-shirts, two canisters (of what, I’m not sure), two coffees, two plates and two flavor capsules.  There are also three foldable boxes.

Like other MiWorld sets, there are some stickers you’ll have to apply to get the full effect. The stickers are easy to remove, but they have a few problems of their own.  Mainly, it’s hard to tell where some of the stickers go.  For example, there’s this huge Cupcake ATM sticker, but I’m not certain where to actually put it!

It would make sense to put it in the empty white space on the second wall, but then again, why would a cup cake ATM go behind the register?  The cupcakes get stickered with dots, which was strange to me at first, but I went with it anyway.

One major issue with the stickers is that they don’t like sticking to the miniature accessories.  To make sure the stickers stay on, you’ll probably want to tape these down with clear tape.

I think the MiWorld sets are really great, in general, but this set is a bit of a let down.  I love the color of the backdrop and the fantastic display case, but the table and chair set is a disappointment.  It seems to me that this set, more so than the rest, went through the most changes from prototype to actual product.  Still, though, you couldn’t ask for a better backdrop for your tiny dolls.
