Newberry Dolls Table and Two Chairs
Newberry Dolls 18" Dolls (Round) Table and Two Chairs (MSRP $24.99): Flat white composite wood, round table & two chairs. Some assembly required. The box contains precut pre-fab wood pieces that must be screwed together. Rather like if IKEA made Doll Furniture for American Girl. Never heard of this brand before, but the set had a couple great onsite reviews. As a miniaturist modeler I LOVE kits to assemble --- and customize!

*The onsite description stated this was a Kenyield Table and Chairs, but this product actually came labeled "Newberry" on the box. Seems "Kenyield" may be the (Chinese) company that manufactures it for the Newberry Dolls label. After opening the box and putting this together I discovered the scale is a good bit off (especially if the dolls are an "adult"). By this scaling, an 18" American Girl Doll appears as a young preteen at best in an oversized-for-a-child setting or perhaps like Alice after she shrank to enter Wonderland --- feet wouldn't touch the ground even if the dolls legs could bend at the knee. The set is well made, prefab composite wood, sturdy and an adorable design. A shame about the scale. Again, a child may not mind the size discrepancy.
