I just recieved them as part of my "Christmas haul" a couple of days ago. I checked them over thoroughly and I am so pleased! They are made of a durable material and the yellow color is so period appropriate (yes, I was around in 1974 lol). The chair seats swivel and the table is extremely sturdy. I leaned Julie against the table and not only did it not move but it seemed height appropriate for a ten year old. Even my DH was impressed with the quality and durability!
I could not find the answer online or in the catalog as to what the table and chairs are made from so....I called AG. I spoke with CS rep Linda who looked up the answer. The table and chairs are mad from metal and plastic and the seat pads are made from vinyl. The plastic is heavy duty. I would totally recommend this set!

I, too, love this set! It is plastic, but a very very hard plastic that really does mimic the original furniture of this design (which we had in our home when I was a kid as I am the same age as Julie!). The dolls slide a bit, but stay when posed or pushed up to the table pretty much like they do with most of the other AG tables & chairs. Sorry no pictures - we're moving so it's packed .
My dolls: Kirsten, Samantha, Addy, Original #6, #22 (Madison), #33 (Noelle), #40 (Lucy), #55 (Brooklyn), MG (Eve), McKenna (Laurel)

I have this set and love it. I know everyone hates plastic, but overall it's not bad. The plastic is heavy and sturdy. I love it because this was my era and we had a dinette set similar to this in the bright yellow color. I use it in my cafeteria scene for my dolls' school.
