Our Generation has a bunch of new sets out or about to come out, and there were several that caught my eye. One of them stood head and shoulders above the rest for me. Unfortunately I never came across it at a store, but my patience was well rewarded. I ordered through the Target.com site, and I got one heck of a deal!
The Master Baker set has so many cool pieces in it. A couple of them are repeats of items I already have, but only one is something I’m not sure I would want two of (the scale). The box was a little bit bent up, but everything was okay otherwise. Getting it out of the box was another story, I’ve never had such a wrestling match in my life. Good thing there was little to no chance I would be returning it, by the time I was done, the box was completely mutilated. Why do they keep doing this????
The pieces I was least interested in were the hat and the apron. Both are very cute though, and I was impressed that the hat actually had a Velcro closure, so you can adjust it and easily get it on and off a doll without messing up the hair. The apron surprised me, it ties around the neck and waist instead of having Velcro. Both items fit nicely.
One thing that I was very impressed with was the mixer. It’s very similar to the one that American Girl sold last year for Grace Thomas. However, it is variable speed! There is a switch that allows you to adjust it to 3 different settings, what a cute feature! The timer also works, sort of. You wind it up and the hands go round and round, although they just keep moving, it’s not usable as a real timer. Still very unique!
Love the pan of brownies and the fact that you can remove them from the pan. Only one is loose, but that’s okay. I just like the fact that you can take them out and put them on a different plate if you want to.
The lid comes off the cookie jar and the set comes with 6 different cookies, as well as a cut out from the dough. You can never have too many cookies! The lid for this fits well too.
I give this set an A++. Lots of little gadgets for lots of fun play. At $29.99 it’s a reasonable price. Right now Target has it on sale for $24.99. They are also offering free shipping on everything for the holiday season. I REALLY lucked out, they were running a special code for 20% off, so I ended up getting it for $19.99, what a steal, and free shipping to boot!!
