Rated 2 out of 5 by majaersa Quality Lacking
Before having my daughter, I was a childcare teacher. I had several Fisher-Price Little People toys in my classroom, including the small dollhouse and barn. They were made of thick, durable plastic and looked brand new after 5 years of daily use.
When my daughter received the small dollhouse and barn as gifts (Christmas 2012), I noticed they weren't quite as nice as the ones I remembered. The plastic seemed a bit more flimsy and the colors were not as varied. Less furniture came with the dollhouse.
My daughter received the corner market this past Christmas. We had already noticed that the Little People look different. They are made of a thinner plastic and do not look anything like they used to. Upon opening the corner market, we noticed the plastic is terribly thin and it feels cheap. The colors are not varied, especially on the fence. There isn't even a piece of plastic in the refrigerator door! It is just a door frame that opens and closes!
We will not be buying any more Little People products. I do not like how the quality has gone down so drastically! I also don't like the look of the new Little People. It all looks cheap to me, but the prices go up!
