I think this is generally a very cute set. I would give it an overall rating of B+.
The apron has light yellow lines where you can embroider a flower pattern. However, it's generally rather plain looking without embroidery. I suspect it would be plain even with the embroidery. I wished AG had added a fringe or had given it a cuter shape or made it a different color. B
The antique-looking needle book has four color choices that include, green, red, yellow, and purple. There certainly would be plenty of leftover thread. But it's not very interesting to me as a plaything because it's human-sized and I can get thread anywhere. B+
The doll-sized wooden hoop actually works and has a metal screw. A
The lamp is actually a substantial piece, with a decent amount of detail. It's made of real metal and you can lift the deflector (? that round sideway piece that looks like the top of a tin can) off its rod. You can also spin the deflector piece around the lamp. The wick inside is a piece of cloth that look kind of like a flat shoelace. There's a working screw on the side of the lamp that turns and lets you move the wick up and down. I'm not sure why they added this feature. I would have preferred a real candle, but perhaps they were trying to be historically accurate about something. Yes, there's no glass in the "bulb" part and there are two obvious seams on the plastic. But I think the "glass" looks realistic enough that I sometimes forget it's plastic unless I touch it or stare at it closely. I think it was a smart move on AG's part because it would have been annoying to ship and replace parts all the time. A-
So I give the set an overall rating of B+ because I think the apron is too plain and I wish there was a thimble too. Out of Addy's entire collection this is not one of my favorites, but I'm being very critical because I already adore everything about her collection. If you do find the lamp, however, I do highly recommend trying to get it.
