When I saw this tea set I thought it was so adorable. I'll be honest my girls have at least 4 tea sets already but they play with them. They REALLY play with them all the time and they enjoy playing with them. So I don't think it's bad for them to have a ton of variety. Plus most of the time they incorporate them all together.
I really thought I was getting a pink flower and gingham pattern so at first I was pretty disappointed with this pattern ~~ Had I read the disclosure that patterns may vary it would not have been a surprise. But the more I looked at it, the more I thought it was adorable. It's prefect pattern for boys or girls and it's bright and colorful.
It's a metal set so I don't have to worry about plastic breaking into pieces when they get stepped on. I KNOW it will happen eventually. The metal is pretty toughly constructed so I don't even know if it will bend a lot. I did not put it through the test nor did my girls, yet.
It's an adorable, complete set with tea matching (fruity) cups and saucers, serving tray, tea kettle, and snack plates. So my girls have everything they need to host a "proper" tea party.
My girls loved it and they really liked the pattern. Which is really nicely painted with lots of details. They will get tons of use from this tea set. Now if I could just stop them from fighting over which plates decoration they want!!
I received this product complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion but the opinion expressed is all mine.
