All the pieces are made of plastic, besides the box of the game, the book, and the cards for the game. Nothings is easily broken.
The good: It's a very functional set. All the pieces are to scale it's easy to play the 300 wishes game.
The bad: I have so much trouble with the box for the pizza. It never stays shut!! I have to keep it taped so it stays together.
Together, I give this set an A. Functional, cute, and only $22 for a lot of stuff.

I love my American girls and my rabbits Ag's: Kaya, Felicity, Lissie, Samantha, Sammy, Nellie, Molly, Kailey, Marisol, Jess, Nicki, Mia, Chrissa, Sonali, Cher, Lily, Hannah, Eleanore, and Charlie Rabbits: too many to name!
We ordered the replacement parts for the pizza and lemonade (2 sets of 2). They arrived today and dd loves them. She is having a pizza party right now with the girls. The lemonade is super cute and the pizza is more realistic looking than I thought it would be. Like rabluv stated, the pizza box doesn't stay closed, but it doesn't bother me too much. We will be ordering another pizza and more lemonade!
Great play value. Very durable pieces.
ETA ~ Here are some close up pictures. Sorry for not putting the pizza back together correctly.

From American Girl.com.
Sleepover Food & Fun Item# F6729 Get the set that’s guaranteed to make any American Girl sleepover a success. These make-believe eats and special treats are a great start to a night of doll fun:
Pretend pizza and two pink lemonades A doll-sized version of the 300 Wishes game 20 playing cards with 4 cases A mini version of the Snooze-a-Palooza! book, filled with step-by-step ideas for planning super sleepovers
Something that actually accidentally happened to end up in my bag at a store. I thought I was getting an outfit but decided to keep this.
The pizza and box is basically like any other dolly food one may find at some random toy aisle. The box is off-white cardboard with a generic pizza printing. The box is hard to keep closed. One cool thing is that there is a circular insert much like real pizza boxes.
There are six slices of pizza for the party. The pizza is made of a rubbery plastic with molded sauce, cheese and pepperoni. Not very realistic but it does fit in a doll's hand.
I was surprised on how detail the 300 Wishes Game is, almost an exact replica of the real thing.
Box opens up. Blame the camera.
There are four little hard cases with five cards each. Each card tells of a "wish" a young girl may have. Some girl that is for I had little desire to "Live on a horse ranch" or "See Koalas on a trip to Australia."
The game has three problems. First, it is very hard to keep all the little pieces together. The box does not hold the cases well, and the cases can not keep the cards. Pieces are going to go missing quickly. Second, I dare anyone to explain this game to me.
Yeah for awesome dolly books! This one is a full sized edition of the American classic Snooze-a-Palooza! This is great for doll book selves or beds.

The lemonade is exactly what you may find in the sweet treats set. The glass are small but fit in the dolls hands. I know that pink lemonade is a staple in a girls diet but I would had preferred soda cans.
For $24, you do get a lot out of you money. The pizza and the lemonade could had been better, but the game and book make up. It fits well into real girls' lives and looks neat for a modern doll's room. The only caution is that one should not buy this set for a girl younger than 8 or one that loses things easily. That is unless you like tiny cards in your vacuum.
And Cécile makes eight...and maybe room for one more.
