Gabby’s Dollhouse Dress-Up Closet Delivers Hours of Fun on the Go!

Touted to be one of the hottest toys just in time for Christmas, Gabby’s Dollhouse Dress-Up Closet is a firm favourite for preschoolers. Just ask our toy reviewer Lily, who has barely put her Dress-Up Closet down since unboxing it! Compact and offering loads of fun, she’s taken it everywhere this week. Check out a day in the life of Lily and Gabby in our video below!

Gabby’s Dollhouse Dress-Up Closet is only one of the MANY adorable new toys in the Gabby’s Dollhouse collection. Be sure to also check out the Purrfect Dollhouse, plush toys and add-on rooms, all part of the extensive Gabby’s Dollhouse range available at Kmart, Target, Big W and all good toy retailers.

Let’s check out why the Dress-Up Closet is a dream gift for preschoolers and a lovely addition to any play space. Parent-approved too!

The purrfect portable playset

From a mum’s perspective, Gabby’s Dollhouse Dress-Up Closet is a toy dream come true – no batteries, no annoying sounds and it’s incredibly compact.

It features four play spaces on the inside, but it folds up into a small box which makes it easy to store and transport.

Take a look inside!

Open the cat-themed box and inside, it’s packed with fun surprises and different areas. This was another big tick as a mum – it entertained Lily for hours and hours.

The closet opens up a world of imaginative play and it was so nice to listen to her jabbering on as she immersed herself in this small world of wonder.

Inside, there are four different play areas:

  • A hair salon for Gabby’s hair (with three wigs)
  • A dressing room with three different outfits to choose from plus drawers to place additional accessories (a cape and a cat tail)
  • A catwalk for Gabby to strut her stuff
  • Then, upstairs, there’s a stage with several different backdrops to explore

Gabby’s Dollhouse Dress-Up Closet also comes with 14 accessories in total including:

  • 3 wigs, plus wig stands
  • 3 different outfits including hangers to hold the outfits
  • A toy camera, a tripod
  • A surprise box (which contained a lovely little butterfly backpack for Gabby to wear)

So many ways to play

The playset is the perfect size for little hands and Lily loved uncovering the different areas, putting the clothes on the hangers and twirling Gabby around on the catwalk.

She also had a lot of fun climbing Gabby up the ladder onto the stage.

Perfect for at home or on the go

But perhaps the thing Lily loved the most about Gabby’s Dress-Up closet was that she could easily take it anywhere with her.

Like most preschoolers, Lily is pretty active and isn’t a huge fan of staying home all day long. On the days we do have off from work/daycare, we tend to explore and, on this day, Gabby came along for the ride.

At home. In the car. To the park. To the beach. Off for a quick visit with grandma. And back again! It’s so easy to open and close and pack up again. Plus, the handle makes it easy to carry around.

A day in the life of Gabby’s Dress-Up Closet 

In the morning

After dropping her big sister at school, we ventured to the beach for a short little play. I thought Gabby might remain in the car for this one, but, nope, out the Dress-Up Closet came.

While Lily was hesitant to take Gabby swimming, they did enjoy a lovely sand play together.

Then it was off to the park for a picnic and a play. Gabby’s Dollhouse Dress-Up Closet came along for the ride (of course!).

At the park, Lily barely put her new toy down and it went down the slippery dip several times. So much fun!

A quick trip to the grocery store for some dinner items and then it was back home, where, after some quiet time, Gabby’s Dress-Up Closet came out for another play as she discovered the various accessories and the special surprise.

Afternoon adventures

Soon we were heading home to meet big sister Jade (10) after a full day at school. This time Lily let Jade have a go, and she loved it even though she doesn’t watch the series.

Quick stop at Grandma’s!

A quick stop over at Grandma’s place for a quick cuddle and a snack. Grandma makes the best after-school snacks and Lily was so excited to show Grandma her new toy.

The perfect accessory to any preschooler’s playroom

It’s quite amazing how something so small and compact offers so many hours of pretend play. I predict Gabby’s Dress-Up Closet will remain a favourite for Lily for many more months and, as it’s so compact, there are no dramas about finding a space to store it in her already-crowded playroom. BONUS!

As mentioned, the Dress-Up Closet is only one of the many toys in the Gabby’s Dollhouse range. You can find Gabby’s Dollhouse toys at Kmart, Big W, Target and good toy retailers.

In the range, there is also the Gabby’s Dollhouse Purrfect Dollhouse (RRP $109), plus plenty of smaller Deluxe Rooms you can buy (each sold separately) that attach to the dollhouse to expand the play.

The Dress-Up Closet retails for $69.99 and is the perfect present to keep up with any imaginative and active preschooler.
