Addy's Party Treats ABAP $29
I received mine today and much to my surprise they came in a PM box! The box was white and had a removable band around it with Samantha, Kirsten, Molly, Felicity, and Addy pictured on it. This set is too cute. It comes with a cherry pie that has two slices cut out of it, two scoops of ice cream, milk bottle, flowers, and a pie server. Everything is glass, ceramic, or metal except for the banner of freedom and paper lantern. No 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 full price. Some of my set is tagged PC which is a nice plus. The pie plate is real metal and heavy. I was very impressed with it. The pie server is also metal and very nice. The cherry pie is cute. It comes with two slices cut out (why only two?) but when you put the slices back, they don't match up to the pie. I think the whole pie should have been cut. The tiny scoops of ice cream are really cute. They don't really look much like ice cream, though they are detailed. The glass bottle is awesome. It's real glass and it's NOT the same as Molly's. It doesn't have the Pleasantry Fresh farms on it and I think the glass is heavier. The flowers are cute like all other historical flowers. They don't fit in the glass bottle nicely because the stems aren't long enough to go all the way in the bottle, so they sort of balance on top, but it doesn't look bad.
Grade: A- for the pie not being sliced all the way and looking kind of fake.
I got this set the other day in the burgundy box--circa 2002. I love this set! It's mixable with Kit's Party Treats and the little server is of the same design as Josefina's silverware. The paper lantern and the banner are nice touches to the set. I like how the pie isn't cut all around--the set like all the others is only meant to serve two! Overall this set is very nice, and interchangeable with Josefina's and Kit's sets. It would be sad if this were to get retired. Grade: A+

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

Comparison of Molly's milk bottle from her Party Treats with Addy's. Molly's bottle has a centered raised heart with 3 stars within the heart, and under the heart also raised reads: PLEASANTRY FARM ------------------------- GRADE A MILK
