You won't believe it; This is a real, fully functional salon chair, just like you see in hair salons. There's nothing else like it anywhere. It was manufactured exclusively for My Salon Doll. The perfect accessory for doing your My Salon Doll's hair! The straps keep your doll in place while you brush and style. Push down on the side pump to lift up the chair. Hold down the pump and push the chair down to return it to the bottom position. The wide base is very resistant to tipping over, and the heavy steel hydraulic shaft keeps the chair firmly planted wherever you put it. The rubber ring on the bottom won't mar surfaces and is resistant to sliding. The best of quality, you won't be disappointed!
