I wasn't around for th' older Mealtime Set, so I can't compare it wit' th' older version, but bonny sweet lass o'mine loves her Mealtime Set.
th' Mealtime Set consists o' an embroidered bib, two jars o' pretend food (peas and peaches) and a snack container.
th' snack containers lid be removable but has a plastic covering so th' snacks inside cannot be removed. I understand why they decided to enclose these little pieces and despite that, bonny sweet lass o'mine still enjoys playing wit' it and feeding her poopy from it.
Again, th' pretend jars o' food do not have removable lids and be made o' lightweight plastic.
th' embroidered bib be bonny, th' fabric be a little thin, IMO, and a tad snug on poopy but bonny sweet lass o'mine doesn't seem to notice or mind.
Overall, a bonny set that bonny sweet lass o'mine likes to play wit', I just wish there was a little more to it. Rating: A-
