I ofcourse bought these so that I wouldn't be without when Emily is released. I was really hoping that the skates in this set would be of better quality then the newer skates. My guess so far is that is the case. The wheels on the new skates look like the ones on Kit's scooter and I didn't want cheep crud skates like those if I could help it. I really like this set. A person could make a less expensive version if they wanted. Little clips can be found in many craft stores and you could pringt you own donkey game. The version of the donkey game is a nice thick stock. I was really surprised to find it so nice. the jump rope is nice and has wooden handles that are threaded onto the rope and knotted in the end.
The Bottle has all the detail that makes me grin. How cute is this!?! Pleasantry Farms Grade A milk! To freakin' cute!
I got my set today. It's so cute! I was so surprised to see that the glass bottle is really glass. I thought for sure it would be plastic by now. Also the skates have PC tagged stickers on the bottom! Mine came in a box with a sticker label detailing the contents, so I assume it is from AGP and really retiring :-(
My only gripe about this set is that the skates are not real leather. I don't think the amount of leather it would take to make them would be very expensive....other than that, I love it! I bought it right before it sold out, too. I usually miss on retired items, so I was excited that I bought it when I did!

Pro's: The quality... definately! The bottle is made of real glass, the clothespins are just adorable! The set is very cute.
Con's: The skates, I have to disagree with the others, aren't the best quality. I can't compare them to the newer skates because I haven't seen them in person; but these are chinsy and fake looking.
Detailed Review: The items in this set are very cute, and beacuse of the (overall.....) quality are worth the price. I wouldn't pay more than $20, though, just from opinion. The set has play value, but it's kind of fragile so I don't know if I'd want to play with it anyhow! I haven't used it yet, it is living a shelf life out in the closet. I tend to break these type of things!
