I bought this for my niece. So, I didnt see her with it on a daily basis. However, I remember she could not open it up after she closed it. There's a little plastic part that sort of latches (but, not) in a way, which makes it difficult for a child to open it. My niece was 1 years old. I gave it a three because the mirror was sort of interesting. Maybe it could also have been give a 2. But, I think it will depend on the interest of the child. I think if it was a toy she could play with by herself, that opened and closed easily, I would have given it a 4.
