OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Little girls can accessorize like their favorite twin genies with the Shimmer and Shine Dress Up Trunk from Just Play. The cute, sparkly storage trunk comes with 19 dress-up accessories for kids to role-play as Shimmer and Shine from the Nickelodeon animated series. It includes a pair shoes, two bracelets, 12 jewels, two barrettes, and a genie bottle. The shoes are purple genie slippers with gold trim that feature a sparkly gem with a picture of Shimmer and Shine on it. The two child-sized gold plastic cuff bracelets look like the genies' wish granting bracelets seen on TV. Each bracelet has three pegs for attaching the included gems, which come in different shapes and colors. The genie bottle features a spinner for kids to spin the arrow to see which gem they land on. This is one way to choose which jewels to wear on the cuffs. The sparkly purple genie bottle can also store the gems that are not being used. Finally, two purple genie bottle shaped barrettes can be worn in a little girl's hair. All the accessories can be stored in the mini trunk, which can also be used to store other treasures. 

Is It Fun?

This set features genie-themed items inspired by the Nickelodeon TV series Shimmer and Shine. Fans of the show will appreciate the familiar details, and love dressing up like Shimmer or Shine. It comes with many accessories (19 in total), offering kids a variety of options. There are genie bottle shaped barrettes for hair play, and shoes and bracelets for dress-up fun. The two bracelets are completely customizable using the included 12 jewels. A genie bottle with a spinner offers a game-like element, as kids spin to see which gem the arrow lands on. This is one way to choose which jewels to wear on the cuffs, or they can just choose whichever they prefer that day. The sparkly genie bottle can also store the gems that are not being used. This is great because they are small, and can easily get misplaced. When not in use, all the accessories can be stored in the sparkly mini trunk, which can also be used to store other treasures. This is a really cute set for Shimmer and Shine fans to act out genie storylines. It's fun on its own but also can be worn along with the Shimmer and Shine dress-up sets (which are sold separately) to help kids complete their genie looks. 

Who It’s For

The Shimmer and Shine Dress Up Trunk is for fans of the series ages 3 and up. 

What To Be Aware Of

This Shimmer and Shine Dress Up Trunk is a 19-piece accessory set. The child-sized accessories can be worn on their own, or along with the additional Shimmer and Shine dress-up sets (sold separately). The purple genie slippers seem to run a bit big for 3 and 4-year-olds but one solution is to keep the plastic tag attached because it makes the fit smaller.
