Young Sweethearts Wishing Well Park - Parts

You can see additional photos of the Young Sweethearts' Wishing Well Park in my Webshots folder titled Mattel Playsets.

Additional items I would use to extend and to improve this playset are 1 or 2 "grass" mats for flooring, at least two 20" tall "park" backdrops (photos of a park) that would look better than the current backdrop of other dolls draped across boxes, etc, and additional "trees." Perhaps the Young Sweethearts tree is a fake tree amongst some "real" ones. Perhaps? Ha. Okay, it definitely is a fake tree. Perhaps I could cover some empty Mattel Fashion Fever tubes with papier-mâché to simulate tree bark? What to do for lower branches though? Need to consider it.

Any thoughts or additional ideas for the Park? Let me know.

Wow! that looks like an interesting playset. You're webshot photos show how complicated (meant in a positive way) the parts are.

For trees, I would start with dried branches. Nothing can beat natures design, me thinks. :) A substitute for grass mats are green felt papers. I think dolls are easier to pose on flat felt papers compared to posing them on grass mats. Miniature plastic plants here and there could also add to the realism.

I hope that helps. :)

Thanks, Niel! I love your suggestions. Dried branches, green felt flooring, and mini plastic plants here and there would cost less AND be easier to move about.
