This review is from: Strawberry Shortcake Playset - Berry Cafe (Toy)
My 4 year old DD had to earn this toy by not sucking her thumb. I had it in the closet for awhile, but finally came the time to open it, so I did it after she went to bed so I wouldn't have her hovering around while I try to pull all the tiny pieces out. The pieces are very tiny, but are comparable to Polly pocket size, so I don't recommend this to any child who still puts things in their mouth.

While I was putting it together, I got a close look at all the pieces and I was amazed by the quality! All the furniture is well painted and even though the pieces are small, they all are made well. There is nothing more annoying than when you have a table that is not quite level or sturdy and then the cups fall over when you set the table! With this toy, that doesn't happen.

Another thing that I like about this toy is that the staircase swivels. Moreover, you can take off SSC's dress and change her clothes (if you purchase another set, like the wardrobe). The window shutters open and close as does the door. The bird ride is pretty cool too, although your little one may need help putting SSC on the bird until they get the hang of it. Plus, who doesn't love things that smell like strawberries?! We've had ours for over 3 months and it still smells great! At first, I was worried that the fragrance would irritate my DD's eczema (she has it really bad on her hands), but it hasn't so far, which is yet another positive IMO.

The only thing my DD was dissapointed about was that it didn't come with SSC's pets, Pupcake and Custard. You have to buy them separately (in 2 diff. sets).

If you have/know a little one who loves SSC as well as playsets like Polly Pocket or Ponyville, then this set is for you! Keep your eyes open for sales if you want to save a little money. I got mine for $10 cheaper during an Amazon sale. I have also seen it sold as a combo deal at Wally World with other sets for an extremely good price.
