View Full Version : Does anyone have one of those Disney dress up trunks?

It comes with a few outfits and accessories. I think I have even seen them at BBB around the holidays. Wondering if they are worth it. We are planning on getting DD dress up stuff for the holidays. I bought a few costumes from Kohl's that seem ok at around 10 a piece but with no accessories and am wondering if these trunks are worth it.
Any experience? I think I saw one at my big lots and was going to check the price out.

I think a trunk is a great purchase.
We have a lot of princess dressup clothes. Last year we purchased a trunk from Sams or Costo that had several dresses, shoes, and accessories. It was not Disney, but the same concept. We use the trunk to store all of DD dresses/fairy outfits. We use a plastic box to store all of the accessories. DD also has a few Disney deluxe dresses that came with accessories/shoes, a disney shoe collection, and a disney dress collection that came in a bag, and a couple fairy wings.
Each of these types of dressup clothes have a different quality/style. Some of the dresses are one piece dresses that have a stretchy bodice for "one size fits all"; some are one piece with velcro fasteners in the back; some are two pieces and do not seem to be as elaborate. My daughter seems to play with the generic dresses from the trunk or the two piece dresses from the disney collection more than the deluxe disney dresses. They are easier for her to put on and she can mix and match her outfits. She loves to put on wings and wear more than one skirt at a time.... She has her own sense of style. : )

I just saw this at Costco yesterday and am torn about whether or not to get it. DD has some dress up clothes (hand-me-downs) and is starting to really get into it. When I mentioned it to DH he said "isn't that what her toybox is for?" But her toybox is already full.... At Costco it was $35 - is that a good price?

I ended up picking up the last one for $25 at my big lots. It is Disney, 27 pieces (3 skirts, 4 tops, 3 headbands, and bracelets/earrings make up the rest). I am not so sure how great of a deal that it is .
How many pieces is the one from Costco? If it includes more, and/or shoes, I would guess it is a good price....
