Mine is the plastic revised version, and I think it's beautiful. The first thing I noticed is that it is very light. There's almost nothing to it, weight wise. However, that isn't a bad thing. The workmanship of it is beautiful, and I personally don't find it being made of plastic to be an issue.
It looks to me like real wood, and it has the texture of real wood. The lighter front 'wood' is like a smooth laminate, while the back is a darker type of blend.
The ribbon is beautiful, and it matches the birthday set perfectly. This isn't by any means an essential, or even functional part of her collection, but it is beautifully made and makes displays look extra pretty.
