I got Baby Polly today! She is cute and a steal at $28. I don't think she is worth $48. I wish the cradle were an inch or two longer. I was disappointed in the blanket. I was hoping for something a little nicer.
We just got this set and it is very cute. I was surprised at the size of the box, I thought it would be a little bigger. The pieces are tiny and if you have a little one, you may want to put the small pieces up so they don't get lost. On the other hand, the basin was huge!! It is heavy and is a nice sturdy piece. The candle and holder is nice and seems to be my daughter's favorite part of this set.
I ordered the replacement parts for this set so I could put them in the cabinet from Hobby Lobby (for my daughter's birthday). Very cute pieces, but I agree it would have been nice to be able to remove the pieces. I may try to make my daughter a few doughnuts out of clay so that she can put them on plates for the dolls.
ETA ~ I was able to get them all off. I boiled some water and then dipped the pan in for 30-40 seconds. I used an old pizza cutter to score around the edges and then I pulled off with a pair of pliers (they get pretty soft). You might want to cover the edges of the pliers so they don't damage anything. I didn't do this and I have a few marks, but they aren't too bad. Now the doughnuts pop on and off the pan.
We got this set off of craigslist (after being outbid numerous times on ebay). My daughter loves it and has been playing with it non-stop. The juice boxes are cardboard, but my almost 4 year old has been really gentle with them. The rest of the stuff is nice and seems to be of good quality. The food pieces are smaller than some of the pieces out today.
Overall I give this set an A! It is great for play.
We got this set (minus the multiplicate table, eraser and pen) in a lot of Kit items off of ebay. It must be the older set because the crayons are real. My almost 4 year old was really excited about the pencil box and it's contents. I did grab it and add it to my box of AG things I am saving until she is older.
