"There were no desks in Kirsten’s one room school, so she sat on a split-log bench cut from a tree in the forest. A stream ran past Powderkeg School, and Kirsten loved to have Miss Winston send her to fetch a bucket of water so the class could have a cool drink from the ladle. A trip to the stream also meant she might see her friend Singing Bird."
The bench is great! A+ for this set. It is appropriately rustic and the metal banded bucket and wooden dipper with the leather ladle is excellent. Can you imagine having to sit on such a thing for hours at a time, though?
It works great with her school story outfit and accessories.

Caroline is a lovely doll.
I hadn't intended to get her, we were using my daughter's Lanie to time travel to Caroline's time, but the Jill's Steals & Deals from Feb. 2015 got me. (Who could resist Caroline and her nightgown for $55?)
I'm very happy to have her though I wouldn't buy her for a child -- those curls are too much!
Caroline's meet dress is pink Pink PINK! My favorite thing about her is her gorgeous eyes. She won't wear her meet outfit much, but many of the outfits in her collection are beautiful and we're happy to have her.

This set is nice to have for Rebecca but I wish there was a school book. The bagel is cute though the other clumped food is "eh". I like the bag and the real little pencil is, well, a real little pencil.

This set gets a solid A from me! It reminds me of the good 'ole days of American Girl. I'd worry about giving the crochet hook to a little girl (it's plastic, afterall, and bendable, so I suspect it would get bent out of shape easily).

Our Windsor Writing Chair is quite old and isn't perfect but it still looks beautiful. Our Felicity prefers to pose next to it rather than sitting because she looks unladylike when she sits. It looks beautiful in Felicity's bedroom with her bed and original clothes press which is matches wonderfully.
