Christmas Gift Idea for Kids #1: Olivia 2 in 1 Playset and Plush

I recently was afforded the opportunity to review two wonderful new kids toys from Spin Master, the Olivia 2-in-1 Transforming Playset and the Olivia plush doll.

I'll admit that when I received these toys to review, I had no idea who Olivia was. I did a little digging online and found the following information on the nick jr. website:

Olivia is today's girl. She is a 6 and 3/4 year old dynamo who believes she can do anything and sees every day as an opportunity to try new things. Her vivid imagination takes her on a grand adventures, both real and fantasy, and like all children, her antics occasionally result in endearing misadventures. The Olivia television series is designed to invite preschoolers into the life--both real and fantasy--of an adventurous, can-do 6-year-old girl, her family and friends.

Imagination, got it. Now the pirate ship part of the playhouse makes perfect sense.

First, K got to play with the 2-in-1 Transforming Playhouse:

Product Description:

The Olivia 2 in 1 Real World Playset Dollhouse magically transforms from Olivia's house to her pirate ship! Open the set and play with Olivia in her house - it's just like her real house on the show! 3 different play areas include her bedroom, kitchen and living room. When you're ready to go on a pirate adventure, simply close the set and by opening it from the opposite side, you can magically transform her house into her pirate ship!

The Olivia 2-in-1 Real World Playset Dollhouse includes:

  • Olivia figure

  • Dollhouse that transforms into a pirate ship

  • And more than 23 accessories and stickers!

Olivia inside her house:


Olivia in the Crow's Nest on her pirate ship:


She really had a blast pretending to be in Olivia's house (it looks just like her house from the show...or so I'm told) when the playset was open to that side. Once the playset was opened to the pirate ship side, K really got into making Olivia walk the plank.

The playset is really easy to switch from one scene to the other. You do have to press pretty hard to make sure the latch catches. If it's not secure, your pieces will go everywhere when the playset pops open. That was the only negative thing about the playset.

This was the Olivia plush K got to play with:


Product Description:

With the Olivia Basic Plush Doll - Cow, you can play with Olivia dressed in some of her favorite outfits from the show. High quality 9 inch plush, intricate details and bendable ears make Olivia the perfect everyday carry-along friend.

Olivia quickly became K's new friend to tote around everywhere.


The 2-in-1 Playset is offered for as low as $29.99 and the Plush dolls are around $9.99 each and are available at, Toys "R" Us, and Target. Find out about more great toys at Spin Master's site,
