I love this set. I bought two (second one Mattel) so that I could set a table. Wish there was a teapot, creamer, and sugar... I like this set more than the new pink one.
Mine survived my sister and I's childhoods with only the handle broken off the tea caddy. The dishes were actually pretty durable in our opinion. The original tea caddy had a little U-shaped handle that was different from the modern one. (I'd take a photo but the handle fell off years ago). I like the modern caddy's handle more and it seems less likely to break.
The teacups and saucers are so cute and pretty, and the set was really neat that it came with the spoon, napkin, and queen cake. The queen cakes are incredibly detailed and awesome. Wish I had 5-6 more to put in a little basket or something.
