Julie’s sleepover fun has just begun with this groovy set! $50 My only complaint about this set is that if it for a sleepover, why is there only one drink? I would have skipped the Jello and added a drink, there are two plates.
The food is clumped together.
I remember these plate holders from the 1970s, they were so goofy!
My Gramma had this phone in pink (she was one cool lady!) The dial really works.
The drink and the Jello:
The Jiffy pop is the same as the old set. The old one is on your left and the new one is on your right.
The hugging monkeys are adorable!!! I had these in the late 1970s and their names were Mork and Mindy.
There hands have Velcro and they come apart and can be posed in different ways.

Julie's Snack Set (debuted August, 2014) Item# BKD67 $50
Julie’s sleepover fun has just begun with this groovy set!
An authentic yellow ’70s rotary phone with a dial that really turns A pretend layered gelatin treat in a fancy parfait glass Faux celery sticks with peanut butter Make-believe Jiffy Pop® popcorn Three pretend deviled eggs A drinking glass with a cute owl design Two plates in sunny flower-shaped holders A pair of hugging monkeys
I finally broke down and purchased this set. I really didn't want another Jiffy-Pop (and you'll notice that I even forgot to put it in the photos!) And although the hugging monkeys are cute, they weren't something I thought my Julie needed.
HOWEVER, the yellow telephone and paper plates with holders finally convinced me that Julie would like these in her room.
I took these items upstairs to the dolls' room only to remember that Julie was hanging out downstairs in Samantha's Ice Cream Parlor! I'm not one to run back downstairs on a whim, so Ivy got to model the new food-stuffs:
This set is very well made! The dial on the phone actually rotates and springs back to place -- just like the old rotary dials! It does not make any sound though.
I wish the eggs and celery were separate and may try to separate those. I'll update with photos if that works out.
My favorite part is the paper (although they are thin, sturdy plastic!) plates and flower shaped plate holders! I love that they are separate and that the plates can come out.
The jello-parfait is cute (needs a spoon!) and the kool-aid in the owl cup is very 70's.
Again, the monkeys are cute and all, but the food stuff takes the cake (pun?) around here!
Grade B+ (no A because I wish they hadn't include another Jiffy Pop!)
