Rated 3 out of 5Â by a mom of two Nice but..
I have paper cut outs of this type of toy, so thought the wooden version would make a great gift. Children love this and it really helps my kids consider composition and organization when making the costumes. The problem I find with this version is that only boys can be seen as police officers, construction workers and firefighters. Couldn't these be more interchangeable or there be mutually applicable occupations so that our daughters could see themselves in something other than a pretty outfit? According to this (Joey) version ONLY boys get to be cops and girls (Melissa) get to think about their leggings.

My grandchildren loved this magnetic dress up, Each piece is made up of solid wood. This one is perfect for little boys as they dress this wooden doll in fireman, policeman and several more outfits. It sells as a great price.

Although this could be an item for a girl or boy the Melissa & Doug "Joey" magnetic dress up figure sure was a hit with my grandson who is 4 years old. He also has the "Jack" magnetic figure. "Joey" dresses is fireman, policeman, construction etc. and "Jack" dresses is sports outfits like baseball, hockey, basketball etc. It is so much fun to play with and really helps him co-ordinate outfits and be silly and mix and match. This is a nice small toy that comes boxed to keep parts together. It fits nicely on the shelf too. I'd recommend it for hours of fun.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by best aunt ever got this for brothers kids---love it!!!
He loved this. I gave it to him before I gave his sister the princess and the ballerina. His sister loved hers but he loved them all. He put the dresses on the girls and loved matching the shoes with the dresses. Or the boots with the pants. I think he loved the girls one better because there was much more ways to dress them up - the gloves shoes hats crowns etc. His little brother chewed on one of the pieces and it started to fade but oh well. If the boys had more accessories, hammers, flags, flashlights etc---that would be great!!!
