I was excited to get the new and improved tea cart as I have the original cart and wanted to see the changes that the new cart featured. I noticed immediately the height difference. The new cart is a much better and more natural height for our 18 inch dolls. The larger front wheels give the cart a more antique and elegant feel. The new cart also doesn’t have top screws showing and a removable tea tray shelf.
I have had the Antique Rose Fine China Tea Set for a few years now and I love it because it matches my own china collection. It works so well with all my 18 inch dolls and it looks beautiful! The recent addition of the Colonial Cutlery Set brings me such joy!
The set of four forks, knives and spoons in the wooden cutlery tray slide nicely under the cart when not used in play. They are a good weight. This cart is so wide that I did not even need to open the second leaf for this photo! It is a great play piece.
The new cutlery set and the drop leaf cart make my dolly tea parties even more special. Thank you to The Queen’s Treasures for allowing me to review these special items.
