Lately on Instagram I’ve seen a number of posts with new items available from My Life As. Many of them are repeats of items I already have or at least something similar, so I was able to resist for the most part. Except one set. The aquarium set! I’ve thought about making an aquarium for my dollhouse, and not too long ago I found something else that worked as a small one, but this set was just too cute to resist!
And some cute decorations for in the tank. The lid on the treasure chest even opens and closes.
And of course fish!!! What is cool about the fish is they have little points on them that hook into different spots on the inside of the fish tank. I think this is the cleverest idea I’ve ever seen for something like this. I also thought the detail on these was exceptional. Love that there is a Nemo!
One thing I will say is you do have to make a choice of the castle or the treasure chest for decoration, it gets a bit crowded and you run out of space for the fish if you try and use both. Still so cute though! I think this will be a nice addition to the dollhouse living room. I do wish that the bottom part of the rack had a shelf so you had someplace to set the net, fishfood and any other accessories, but I think it will be easy enough to make one from a piece of cardboard for what I want.
I give this set an A+++. My Life As sets just keep getting better and better, and this set is no exception. And at $7.92, I don’t expect to see these stay in stores for very long!
After I posted this, I had a question about the scale on it. So I decided to add some photos so you can see. It is a bit on the short side, but the fish are the right proportion. However, I did discover that the tank comes off the stand! So if you wanted to make it look more realistic, you could set it on a bookshelf or something along those lines.
