Trellis Swing Item# F7459 $65
"When it’s warm outside, American Girls love to swing in the flower garden.

I do not have the Trellis swing, but examined it at AGBA yesterday for this review.
The swing is totally plastic. The construction is sturdy, but looks very much like it's plastic and fragile. The silk flowers are okay, but not very life like looking. There is a nice padded seat cushion and some type of clear plastic rubber band item to help the dolls to actually stay in the swing. Otherwise, they would fall out easily. I don't think it's worth $65. Grade C.
I just received my Trellis Swing yesterday. I am beyond fascinated by it. It sits two dolls very comfortably. They do not fall down or slip down at all. The cushion is attached to the swing in a very good way. The flowers are lovely- delicate enough to not look bold or cheap, but also attached well enough. The color combination is absolutely beautiful. And it is a good size overall.
Yes, it's not made of real wood etc, but it looks great as a display piece! Although it's tall, it doesn't take up much floor/table space. This is the only AG furniture that I keep out all year round - I love it aesthetically that much!
