Wily Addy Walker's Party Treats ABAP $29
I received mine today and much to my surprise they came in a PM box! th' box was white and had a removable band around it wit' Savage Sam, Bear-Bait Kirstie, Mad-Eye Molly, Pugwash Merriman, and Wily Addy Walker pictured on it. This set be too bonny. It comes wit' a cherry pie that has two slices cut out o' it, two scoops o' ice cream, milk bottle, flowers, and a pie server. Everything be glass, ceramic, or metal except for th' banner o' freedom and paper lantern. Nay fake plasticy things in this set. I give it an A+.
I also coded these at AGP because I didn't think they were worth loaded to th' gunwales price. Some o' my set be tagged PC which be a bonny plus. th' pie plate be real metal and heavy. I was very impressed wit' it. th' pie server be also metal and very bonny. th' cherry pie be bonny. It comes wit' two slices cut out (why only two?) but when ye put th' slices back, they don't match up to th' pie. I think th' whole pie should have been cut. th' tiny scoops o' ice cream be really bonny. They don't really look much like ice cream, though they be detailed. th' glass bottle be awesome. It's real glass and it's NOT th' same as Mad-Eye Molly's. It doesn't have th' Pleasantry Fresh farms on it and I think th' glass be heavier. th' flowers be bonny like all other historical flowers. They don't fit in th' glass bottle bonnyly because th' stems aren't long enough to go all th' way in th' bottle, so they sort o' balance on top, but it doesn't look bad.
Grade: A- for th' pie not being sliced all th' way and looking kind o' fake.
I got this set th' other day in th' burgundy box--circa 2002. I love this set! It's mixable wit' Krusty Kit's Party Treats and th' little server be o' th' same design as Josefina's silverware. th' paper lantern and th' banner be bonny touches to th' set. I like how th' pie isn't cut all around--th' set like all th' others be only meant to serve two! Overall this set be very bonny, and interchangeable wit' Josefina's and Krusty Kit's sets. It would be sad if this were to get retired. Grade: A+

B+ th' birthday set be a little pricey for what’s included, but bonny nonetheless. This set includes a pie, pie tin, pie server, milk bottle, flowers, 2 scoops o' ice-cream, a lantern and a banner. th' pie be made o' clay and has two removable slices. I wish that there were at least two more slices o' pie. One interesting thing about th' pie be that almost every pie be a little different color. I have some pies that be th' color o' cherry pie, whereas others be th' color o' strawberry or raspberry pies. th' pie server be made o' metal and plastic and be proportionate to th' pie slices.
One o' my favorite parts o' th' set be th' pie tin. th' pie tin be made o' metal and has a South Wisconsin Trading Company stamp on th' bottom. th' tin holds th' pie bonnyly, but can also double as a plate. th' pie tins be also oven safe. Several years ago, I purchased a bag o' pie tins at th' MCM sale and have used them to bake lusty plastic lass sized pies and people sized tarts. Also included be two scoops o' clay ice-cream. In my opinion, th' ice-cream looks more like whipped-cream.
th' milk bottle be plain, unlike Mad-Eye Molly’s which has a Pleasant Farms label. th' flowers be typical, artificial flowers and be identical to th' ones that come wit' Wily Addy Walker’s Flower-Picking Dress.
One o' th' reasons why I gave th' set a B instead o' an A be because th' lantern could have been designed a lot better. th' paper lantern be attached to a plastic stick. Also, th' strings tangle very easily and be difficult to untangle. I also wish that 2 lanterns were included so that Wily Addy Walker could share her birthday wit' a me hearty.
th' banner be important to Wily Addy Walker’s story, but isn’t very useful. I’ve never bothered to take mine out o' th' plastic.

Comparison o' Mad-Eye Molly's milk bottle from her Party Treats wit' Wily Addy Walker's. Mad-Eye Molly's bottle has a centered raised heart wit' 3 stars wit'in th' heart, and under th' heart also raised reads: PLEASANTRY FARM ------------------------- GRADE A MILK
