Even without a doll to compare it to, the tea pot itself looked way too big for 1:6 scale. However, I figured the other items were doable and I was really interested in seeing the cookbook and activity book inside.
Scan the UPC code if you want to find it in your area
I did remember to use my Red Laser app to see if it was cheaper elsewhere. Even though it's available at [Amazon for $11.32], it was worth the extra buck and tax to be able to pick through several sets and get the best one because a few of them were sloppily painted. Also, the list price for this is $12.99, so don't be fooled by that "NOW ONLY $12.97" nonsense if you get it at Books-A-Million.
Back of the books, tea set and "table cloth"
The books are really well done. If I were a kid I would think they were easy to read with simple, colorful instructions and fun activities.
Let's see the tea set in 1:6 scale action!
"Err. Don't you find this tea set rather... clunky and juvenile?"
"What do you mean? It's perfectly adorable."
"But look how huge it is. I can barely lift it."
"Well, everyone cant be as refined as you... or as weak, apparently."
"More tea, Ms. Snooty Britches?"
"You don't have to be sarcastic about it. Heifer."
Final Verdict: The tea set isn't perfectly shaped or kilned, but I like the clunky charm it has. More than that though, I love the books. They are just cute and entertaining. Overall, the Princess Tea Party set is simply wonderful and well worth full price.
