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.

I think this set is fantastic!
The lid slides open but stays on my cooler without any trouble. I love how the handles on the side can be postioned up and out for carrying, or flush with the sides of the cooler when not in use.
The food pieces are a nice scale for the dolls I think, bearing in mind that they were, after all, intended for children aged 8+. My set has the two drink boxes and straws, two oranges, two brownies and sub sandwich in four pieces with a wrapper, all beautifully detailed.
However, for some reason I didn't take photographs of all the pieces. I will edit to remedy that when I take some more pics. There was no newspaper in my set (from ebay, of course).
Yes, the fruit boxes are cardboard, but so are the ones in my 'fridge (albeit coated cardboard). I love the little detail of the straws, too!
