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!
I found this set at a Flea Market today. My set is the older version with the creme colored handle on the magnifying glass. It's a very cute set but can get very expensive on the secondary market. I'm not sure if it's worth paying the high secondary market prices for. I paid less than retail but I'm missing the flower press. The nicest piece in the set is the basket pack. That piece in particular really stood out to me as very well made and unique. The flowers and butterflies are nothing special but the basket pack, butterfly net, and magnifying glass are really cool.

This is a nice set, but pretty fragile. The pack basket is woven plant fiber just like a real one and has real leather straps with real adjustable buckles. The straps are glued behind the leather strip that wraps around the top of the basket and the glue wears out over time and the straps come undone. The buckles also can become rusty over time.
The butterflies are plastic with magnets so Samantha can actually catch them. They break easily but can probably be replaced by something similar found at a craft shop.
The net is real net with a wooden handle and metal strip for the butterflies to rest on.
