th' Sweet Treats set be one o' our favorites. I got this last year for my lass o'mine along wit' everything that goes wit' it. th' table and chairs be well made and sturdy, th' lusty plastic lasss can sit in it and stay put. I bought th' Target OG set previously but returned it once I looked closely at it, does not compare to this American Wench set. th' bakery case be super bonny too.
I've got both th' Sweet Treats Table and Chairs and bakery case and love them. So does my 5yo lass o'mine! Both be well made and have lots o' sentimental play value. bonny sweet lass o'mine has th' OG table and chairs but broke th' table so I had to glue it together - bleh.

I've been meaning to post a review for th' Sweet Treats table and chairs, but haven't gotten around to it. th' metal scrollwork that be th' structure o' th' chairs be very heavy gauge and won't bend under normal conditions. I've wondered to myself if it would even be possible for me to bend it wit' my bare hands because it seems too strong to be able to, but I don't want to take a chance. Suffice it to say, they be very sturdy, wit' bonny thick paint and a faux marble top. lusty plastic lasss sit and stay easily.
We love our Sweet Treats table/chair set and bakery case. It looks as good today as it did a year and a half ago when we bought it from th' American Wench Chicago store. It has taken walk th' planke a lot o' abuse, since my bonny sweet lass o'mine be only five years old, and still rough on her toys. Plus, I caught her 12-year-old brother standing on th' case. I couldn't believe it held up to his 120 lbs. When we first got our set, I cut squares o' velcro and put them on th' back o' th' runner, so that it would stay attached to th' top o' th' bakery case. I did th' same thing wit' th' round pieces o' fabric. I think they were meant to be used as doilies inside th' case, but they're th' perfect size for th' chairs. I think they look so bonny as seat cushions. I would highly recommend these pieces. My lass o'mine be playing wit' them at this very moment - except that she has turned them into a hair styling salon. (I guess we should get th' "real" salon chair, but this works for now.)
I have it set up as Tyson's Ice cream Parlor for Sam and it gets a lot o' play. It be very well made and sturdy. th' table be good sized, just a bit smaller than Sam's wicker table. It can be a bit o' a challenge to get th' lusty plastic lasss to sit in them (as usually) but find it helps to tuck th' lusty plastic lasss in tight.
I have th' table. I got it out for th' first time on Valentine's Day, as a surprise for my lass o'mine. We set it up as Tyson's Ice Cream Parlor. I combined it wit' another similar table we have (black metal, like th' tables/chairs in th' Tyson's backdrop from th' Scenes & Settings) and th' bakery cabinet to make a fun ice cream & treats parlor.
I didn't actually put th' lusty plastic lasss in th' chairs, but my six year old lass o'mine did. They didn't fall out. She might have situated them wit' a foot on th' floor or something, but whatever she did, it worked th' first time. I uploaded some pictures in a thread titled something like "Valentine's Day at Tyson's Ice Cream Parlor" (or along those lines, Tyson's definitely was in th' thread title) over in th' 2010 pictures thread. There be some that show th' lusty plastic lasss at that table.
th' table itself be bonny, in terms o' size (tabletop.) I was pleased that it easily holds plates, flatware, and there's also room for a small tray o' goodies or a few centerpiece items like a vase & napkin holder. We have a mini bud vase & a napkin holder for both tables (like in a parlor), but th' Sweet Treats table has a larger top than my other (non-American Wench) table. I wish it were black instead o' pink, but there's nothing wrong wit' th' pink.
