I paid way too much for this set on ebay, but it was the last thing I needed to complete my Josefina collection. I love the two little flags- especially the American flag with only 24 stars! It's fun to compare each historical character's flags; it's too bad they didn't put them in every doll's collection.
I love the pretty little mirror. I was surprised to see that it came with a built-in stand! The cover is really pretty. The tortoise is just awesome. I love the telescope! I am among the silly people who didn't realize how far it extended until reading its review.
The clay whistle is so pretty. I love the delicate brush strokes on the side to indicate wings. Unlike AGR's sets, both my herb gathering and summer fun whistles came on the junky plastic cording. I think it would be worthwhile to swap them out for a real leather cord. As with the flags, I really like that Kirsten, Samantha, Molly, Felicity, and Addy also have whistles. It's that kind of continuity that really impresses me with the AG collections.
