Kit’s Hobo Camp Supplies $24 QAAN
This set includes Kit’s flour-sack bag ,can of tomatoes, can of evaporated milk ,binoculars, a lantern and her harmonica.
The little flour sack bag is terrific! I love the graphic on the bag.
The lamp is plastic, so I try to think of it as bake lite. It is a nice color, and it really lights up.Very cute.
I love that the little tomatoe and milk cans are made of metal. They are very cute, and the lables are nice.
The tiny harmonica is metal and plastic, and it really plays! Too cute!
The binoculars are very nice. They are made of brass and leather-looking hard plastic.They are heavy and seem very sturdy. You can look through them. They have a long leather looking strap so Kit can wear them around her neck. Very nice.
A+ for a great set.

Rabbits: too many to name!
I love this set so much! I mean, I knew that I would like it when I ordered it, because I love the 'doing' sets and this one is so cool, plus I like tiny things, but it exceeded my expectations, believe it or not!
I took lots and lots of photos so that if you want to attempt to replicate any part of the set, or to see exactly what something looks like if you're getting another version, you'll have better luck.
My favorite part? Hm... I love the way it comes with the smaller bits wrapped up in the bag, and I like that the lamp actually works! So does the harmonica and the binoculars, though they aren't calibrated for human size.
I don't like: you can't replace the lightbulb in the lamp, so be very careful not to break it. Also, the strap on the binoculars is leather-like on only one side. The other side looks felted or something.
When you open the box...
The lamp - the handle rotates, by the way:
With the directions for the batteries, so you can see how they go in and stuff.
The binoculars come wrapped up in tissue paper and plastic - the plastic is NOT resealable:
(When you take off the plastic and paper, this is how it looks.)
Check out how you can bend them to change the 'size'!
The binoculars fit in your doll's hand, but they're a little heavy for her, and she can't hold them up to her face at all, unless you stretch her arms with elastics or something.
The flour bag:
A close-up so you can read the directions
With the flap open, the bag is exactly as long as a square accessories box is wide.
It's just a smidge more narrow, though.
It fits easily over your doll's head to hang diagonally, even filled!
The tin cans are pretty cool, but simple. They have a nice weight to them, but all the other neat things are in the pictures:
The bottom and top of each can is a lot like a coke-can, with a softly rounded edge.
The cans are as tall as the height of the flap on the bag, and a little thinner than they are tall.
Harmonica - it actually works! There are four tones, but most mouths will probably be too big to really get it to play. I love how it fits in the little pocket on the front of Kit's overalls.
It fits well in your doll's hand, but she won't be able to hold it without an elastic or tape or something - it's a bit too narrow to wedge between her thumb and finger.

This is one of my all time favorite Kit accessory sets! I love everything about it!
The binoculars are adorable, so is the harmonica. The flour sack bag is so neat, I love how you can actually read it - same with the evaporated milk and tomato cans. The light is neat too - I would have never known that it actually lit up if I wouldn't have read the review.
If you get a chance to purchase this set, you will love it!
The harmonica really works! It's definitely my favorite thing in the collection. I like the lantern too, but it's not as easy to use as some of the other flashlights. The bag and canned food are realistic. The binoculars really work too!
