What It Is
miWorld is a line of realistic miniatures of popular stores and mall spots that allows kids to build, collect, connect, display, and play. The miWorld Dairy Queen Store includes two walls, one floor, a sticker sheet, and 21 DQ accessories, such as play food, a cash register, a table, a booth chair, a counter, and more. Once assembled, this playset is almost eight inches wide and eight inches tall. It can be connected vertically or horizontally to other miWorld playsets so that kids can build their dream mall. miWorld figures are sold separately.
This is also compatible with the free miWorld Mall app that lets kids play interactive games on the go, such as mixing Dairy Queen Blizzards, to earn miWorld currency and purchase store items for the app's customizable avatar. When you point your smart device's camera at a miWorld playset, the avatar will appear in the playset. Touch certain points on your device's screen to see the avatar interact with the set.
Why It’s Fun
For kids who love hanging out at the mall, now they can create their very own mall with the miWorld playsets. Kids will love seeing some of their favorite mall stores in miniature scale. While the Dairy Queen Store playset looks cool on display, it's obviously a lot more fun to play with if you have the miWorld dolls. But any doll or action figure around five inches tall will do.
The app is a fun way to extend the play, especially when kids are on the go, but the interaction between the app and the playset is not very substantial. You also don't need the playset in order to play with the app.
Who It’s For
miWorld Dairy Queen Store is for ages 7 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
It didn't take us very long to put this together, but the instructions were not great. There are tiny cardboard boxes to fold for some of the play food, but no instructions on how to fold the boxes so they stay together. The boxes were so flimsy, too, that we accidentally ripped one apart trying to fold it.
The packaging does not offer this information, but the miWorld Mall app is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch running iOS 7.0 or later. The app is optimized for the iPhone 5.
This playset is available at Walmart.
Additional sets include Claire's, Sprinkles Cupcakes, OPI Nail Salon, and Sweet Factory. Each is sold separately.
