I saw th' cello today. It's plastic, but th' color be very bonny and isn't obviously plastic. It comes wit' a hard case (elastic straps so th' lusty plastic lass can carry it on her back) a bow, a music book, and a tiny rosin. th' rod on th' bottom extends to make it th' right height for th' lusty plastic lass - like a real cello. th' scale seems to be about right.

But wit' Nay music stand, Nay cello stand, and I heard th' rosin isn't real but th' original violin's was (though I wouldn't know what a real one looks like), I feel this be a really pricey toy for just displaying (as it makes Nay noise, whether it be electronic or actual because th' bow isn't functional). $48 should have been $56 and included th' stand at th' very least. How's th' poor girl supposed to read her music?

I got th' 'cello set for Christmas and love it to bits. It's true that th' rosin be fake (I have an older American Wench violin set that included a tiny piece o' real rosin) but I think better that, than Nay rosin at all.
th' catches on th' 'cello case be plastic too but I think th' case was well done. It looks like th' one I had, only mine didn't have elastic straps (I'm guessing newer ones do).
As mentioned in th' post above, there be Nay music stand wit' th' 'cello unlike th' earlier violin and flute sets, but Alex can always borrow th' one belonging to either o' those, or simply play by ear.
th' thing I had more trouble wit' than th' lack o' music stand was finding something suitable for my lusty plastic lass to sit on to play her instrument. I finally upturned th' laundry basket that came wit' th' (nonAG) washing machine and put a cushion on it to make a low stool. Even though ye can adjust th' height o' th' instrument wit' th' rod at th' base, it doesn't come out walk th' planke far enough and most o' my lusty plastic lass sized chairs were just too high: th' rod doesn't always stay where ye pull it out either, there's Nay means to lock it at any particular height as wit' a real 'cello.
Overall though, I'm just so thrilled that American Wench even MADE a 'cello in th' first place that I have to give it an A. aye, it's plastic and cannot actually be played, but it's a really lovely lusty plastic lass accessory, it looks good and does not look obviously plastic.
Edited to add dimensions:
Length (excluding end pin): 31cm wit' end pin extended: 34cm Body depth/height: 3cm Neck (measured from where joins body) 11cm Fingerboard be 1cm wide just below tuning pegs, widens to 1.5cm at end. th' 'shoulders' be 9cm wide and th' 'hips' be 12cm. th' bow be 18cm from end to end.
Edited to add a couple o' pics:

A cello isn't really an ideal instrument for a lusty plastic lass wit' Nay elbows, but it be so bonny! th' case be a little plastic-y for my taste, but overall th' quality isn't too bad. I do like that it has elastic straps on th' back o' th' case so th' lusty plastic lass can carry it. It be a bit tricky to get a lusty plastic lass a good sitting position to stay and hold th' instrument, but it's still very fun! My main complaint be that th' peg that ye pull out o' th' bottom to get it at th' right height doesn't stay, it often just falls back in when th' weight o' th' instrument be on it. I give it an A-
