I've had Molly's bed twice now, and sold it twice. Both times it was a bargain, so I grabbed it. But I just don't like it. I've never seen a material covered bed in real life. Is this style accurate for the 1940's?
I've seen vintage doll beds on Ebay that are a lot like Kit's, but more realistic. Is a metal (iron?) bed something that a kid would have had in the 1940's?
I saw the cello today. It's plastic, but the color is very nice and isn't obviously plastic. It comes with a hard case (elastic straps so the doll can carry it on her back) a bow, a music book, and a tiny rosin. The rod on the bottom extends to make it the right height for the doll - like a real cello. The scale seems to be about right.
I saw it in person today. It looks like it will hold up well to kid use. The cupcake cups are plastic instead of paper, so while someone like me who likes more authenticity would prefer paper cups, the plastic is better for kids.
The cupcakes are very nice (each comes out of the baking cup). The krispy treats are lumped together.
Some of the pieces are very nice.
The overall feeling is "plastic". It's great for kids, but maybe not so great for collectors who like things to look a little more realistic.
I saw it today in Natick. For the most part it's nice, and if you want something to keep things in while keeping them easy to get to, it should work. The only thing I can say against it is that the pull out tubs are cardboard. If this is for an adult, not problem. But if it's for a kid, I think it would be a bit like the Barbie doll cases from years ago. The cardboard accessories box didn't last long. The cardboard in the AG storage tower is much sturdier, but I don't know how much rough handling it would take. For the price, I was surprised to see that they were shiny paper covered bins.
