Magnified Peep Window

Description: This Precious Places® set includes a cute little white ballet studio with a key-activated light that illuminates the interior of the studio. There is a magnified "peep" window on the side of the studio that allows children to peep inside the ballet studio for a magnified view. The magnetic key can be used both to turn on the light, open a lock on the back wall to lay the wall down, and to move the figures around in the studio or on the accessory sidewalks. The studio has a gap under the floor to allows the key to move under it. The figure has a magnet on the bottom that follows the magnet in the key when the key moves under the floor, thus making the figure appear to "come alive" and move by itself. Designed for children ages 5 years and older. The light requires two AA-size batteries and one 3V (.2 amps) bulb.
