I’ve seen several different sets by Newberry on various blogs I follow, and I have to admit I was a bit envious. Newberry doll items were only available in Canada. But that changed recently, and Kmart has now started selling them in the US, YAY! While in a nearby Kmart, I found this set:
And out of the box:
You do have to be very careful taking the menu board out as it’s holding the parts for the table in place, but it will come out so you can reuse it.
You get a nice apron, I just wish it didn’t say Newberry on it. I’ll have to fix that!
Four coffee cups. They are a little bit big, but not horrible.
A tall table which has to be assembled. I’m tempted to find a dowel rod the same diameter and cut it down and paint it so I can use this as a normal height table as well.
A cake stand. LOVE this piece as it’s the right size for most all of my gorgeous cakes I’ve picked up on Etsy!
Six cupcakes, a little bit big also, but not completely unbelievable.
And these enormous donuts! Not sure what they were thinking there, but the girls have decided to start a new trend. Remember those giant chocolate chip cookies you used to buy at the mall all decorated for special occasions? Well, we are selling birthday donuts!
The coffee machine and cash register both make sounds when you press the buttons. Very cool, and I like the cups that came with the coffee machine.
The case is nice, but one thing I didn’t like is that they have a zillion holes punched in the shelves. They used those to hook all the items in place for packaging. I’m hoping I still have some of that fun cupcake design paper that I can cover them with. If not, a solid color or basic pattern will work too. Two shelves you can see from the front but there is also ample storage on the bottom for additional items such as boxes, bags, extra pastries.
Overall, I think this is an awesome set and will go great in my bakery set up. A fantastic set for anyone who perhaps wanted Grace’s Bakery, but didn’t want to spend $500. I paid $40 for this set, but if you keep your eyes peeled, you can frequently get it online now for less. I give this set a B+, and only because of the weird sized accessories.
“Can I help you ma’am? The cupcakes are delicious!”
Wait a second…who is that? Stay tuned! 😉
