Aaryana's review is pretty thorough and pretty much covers the pluses and minuses with this set. I was also hesitant to buy it (because of the food being stuck to the plate) but I'm glad that I did. I think this set is worth the $28. It's a unique set and everything is very cute and substantial. I recommend it, especially for modern collectors. I received this set today with my order and I like it better than I thought I would. The waffles are very detailed so I actually don't mind them as much being stuck to the plate like they are. The accessory pieces - i.e., syrup dispenser, smoothie, etc. - are very cute and the set as a whole I think is worth the $28. I think it will be perfect for my DD and her collection.
