  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Durability:

Pros:Durable plastic for those not so gentle tea drinkers

Cons:Stickers could have been placed with a bit more care

The Bottom Line: This tea set serves up to 4 children and parents don't have to worry about broken teacups.


My daughter started receiving porcelain tea sets when she was 2 years old. I knew they would not last long, so I allowed her some amount of supervised play with them. The first tea set would get used, and then returned to the storage box…at which point the storage box would be shaken and the next time it was opened, part of the tea set would be in pieces. This went on until all we had left was the storage box. She broke part of the second tea set before it even came out of the box, so that one stayed in the box. The third tea set, well, she doesn’t even know about that one. It’s in storage until she’s a bit older.

I was happy when, for her 3rd birthday, my daughter received a plastic tea set. I knew this would be more durable than her other tea sets and I hoped that she would be just as interested in tea time play…especially since her birthday party was a Tea Party.

27 Pieces
The 㦇 pieces” in this set include the teapot storage container and lid. This always seems like a cheesy way of counting pieces. It’s not really part of the toy, but I guess it kind of counts because we do use it as a teapot.

The Cinderella Tea Set has enough parts for a full tea
setup for 4 girls or, in our home, one girl, one mommy, and one daddy who is not afraid to set aside his coffee and have a cup of tea. All of the pieces come packaged in an extra large tea pot. I really like packages that double as a storage container. The package is clear, so you can see the tea set inside, and the base, handle, spout, and lid are “Cinderella Blue.” One side of the teapot has a Cinderella sticker on it and the lid is topped with a glass slipper.

The clear plastic of the teapot has some funny stretching to it that makes parts of it look a little stretched or warped, but this doesn’t concern me very much.

The colors in our tea set are pink, lavender, white, and Cinderella Blue. The set comes with four bowls. These are used for storing rocks, cell phones, cars, and any other small items we have around the house. They are then placed on tables as decoration.

Let’s Have Tea
We use our teacups for drinking tea, our saucers are only occasionally used as saucers, and our plates go mostly unused. I am frequently given one of the included spoons with my tea along with the order to “stir it!”

We pour cream into our tea with the creamer and add sugar to our tea with the contents of our lidded sugar bowl. Tea is either poured from the small teapot included in the set, or if we’re really thirsty, the extra large teapot container.

Cinderella
The plates have portraits of Cinderella and the small teapot features Cinderella enjoying a cup of tea. The cups, sugar bowl, and creamer all have smaller stickers of Cinderella’s glass slipper, while the teapot storage container has a large, fancy portrait of Cinderella. None of these stickers have been placed with any amount of care. I expected the stickers on the plates, at least, to adhere well because plates are flat, but if the sticker wasn’t placed directly in the center of the plate (some weren’t) they peel up at the edges. Some of the stickers on the round surfaces (cups, teapot) are wrinkled or bubbled. The sticker on the storage teapot is curling up at the edges and coming off. My daughter doesn’t feel compelled to pick at or rip these stickers off, so the pieces still look pretty nice, but if she ever decides that picking at stickers is fun, this tea set will start to look well used pretty quickly.

Storage
It has been difficult for my daughter to fit all of the pieces back in the storage teapot. It does take some amount of organization and it’s a grown-up job to get everything back in. My daughter can get the cups, saucers, plates, bowls, and spoons in on her own, but adding the bulkier items (teapot, creamer, sugar bowl) takes a little shuffling.

Overall this has been a pretty fun tea set with a lasting quality that we haven’t seen in other tea sets. That’s something I’ll drink to. Would you pass the sugar, please?
