I have it an like it a lot. I love the display that it makes. It is nice and sturdy, actually quite heavy, and no problems with chipping paint. But, it has been displayed only, so I don't know how it would stand up to play. My only complaint it that the top of the table is a little small. It doesn't easily hold all of there treat set and I worry about something falling off and getting broken. The dolls kind of slide out of the chairs, unless you prop their feet against the table, which is doable.
If you have the funds, I would get it. It has been rumored that it will be gone at the end of the year.
I just wanted to add that the table can not be opened all of the way. There is a piece of wood in the back that stops it when it is partially open, as seen in Sweet Repeat's picture. I was just surprised at this.
This is my favorite piece out of the whole collection. It reminds me of the detail that was put into Pleasant Company items. The parrot can be removed from the cage via a swinging side door, and fits nicely on a finger. I love the book, as I do all small historical book. The magnifing glass does not magnify, just clear plastic. I give this set an A+
I'm not sure which one was PM and which not, but I have has two Posie's. One was heavy like a paper weight, and the other had a more hollow lighter body like Licorice. Sorry that I can't be of more help.
I just recieved this dress. I tink that it is beautiful on Rebecca, but it is quite large in the bodice area. I know that it is supposed to be blousy, but it was also a little wide at the shoulders. The ribbon is just a ribbon, not a clip on bow, and I had little bit of a hard time trying to decide how to get the ribbon to look right.
Dress- A- because of fit, and wish the ribbon was a clip

I just recieved this dress, and love the dress itself, but try as I might, I could no get the hat to go down on her head, it kind of just sits on the top of her hair. Everyway I tried it, it looked terrible. I wish that AG had sized this correctly, because the hat itself is lovely and would look beautiful on Rebecca if only you could get it on.
Dress and shoes - A hat- A for cutness, F- fail for fit
Skukla- I love that ribbon with the dress, maybe I will just use that ribbon in her hair instead of the hat.

I may be going against the majority view, but I don't love the party dress as much as I thought I would. I don't get the black wool jacket with a very light,airy summer dress. I prefer Josefina's riding dress. I have seen the party dress alone on other dolls, and love it on them, but don't care for it as much on Josefina.
