I'm tall, my husband's tall, my kids are tall. . . and although you may argue... there are some DISADVANTAGES to being tall.. This particular disadvantage is ok in my book because I feel the same way as Jessica about this kind of toy.
Here is Abby's friend in her FAB barbie car (it even has a radio and goes FAR TOO FAST for my taste)... see how she fits so nicely in the car and can easily move the steering wheel about and operate the pedals. . .
Now, here is Abby in the car. . . see how her knees are almost to her chin and she looks like she is sitting in a matchbox car? She can BARELY move the steering wheel because it is wedged between her knees...
Well, guess what? Abby and her friend are the same age. . . and much to my Abby's dismay, she has already out grown her dream.
