Below are some comparison photos between an early 1990s pram and a late 1990s pram
Left is early 1990s, right is late 1990s. The early 90s pram is double spoked and a good pound or two heavier than the late 90s one. Also the position of the front wheel is different. The wheels on the earlier edition feel like they are made of actual steel, whereas the later edition is a gold-covered light-weight plastic. The older edition is slightly taller in height than the later edition
Under carriage placement is different as well as one having a brass covered plate and the other not.

Below is pictured two pleasant company versions of Samantha's Lunch.
The one on the left was released in 1994. It is made of a hard clay-like material. rather heavy. The set on the right was released in 1996-7 and all pieces are made of rubber. I prefer the feel of the 1994 set, but the coloring of the 1996-1997 set.

I think this accessory set was a good idea, but I'm not sure what to do with it. It doesn't match very well with Samantha's birthday accessories. They should have added something else to it (though that probably would have made it more expensive). I wish they would have made it so it had like one piece that was removable to give a little more detail, (like they did with Addy's pie). But you take what you can get I guess.
though it is has a child-friendly feel to it.
I would give this set a somewhere between a B- and a C+

She a beautiful Doll overall with excellent details. I'm not sure about being extremely breakable, because I've had her for over 10 years (since I was a little girl) and she still is in decent shape & unbroken after being played with a bit. Her dress does get runs in it, and the hair gets frizzy, but overall she is beautiful.
