Okay...missing parts...needed TLC before it was usable
I went to put the item together and am missing 5 screws. The holes for the awning poles were drilled way too large and the poles won't sit in the holes without leaning way over. I had to use filler and glue to permanently glue the poles in place. The large round knobs on the top of the poles were also glued on at strange angles...had to pop them off and re-glue them. It is a cute set, and I like that the signs are interchangeable, but it's not quite worth the $50 price tag. Once all was said and done (purchase of concession table + lemonade set + ice cream set + sweets set), I'm wondering if I should have spent another $50 to purchase the AG Snack Cart instead (which comes with all the accessories)? Oh, well...my daughter loves it and that's all that matters in the long run.

Good price, good quality
For the price this is a bargain, especially compared to American Girl furniture, . The poles fit tightly for now, actually had to be hammered in a bit, so the holes were def not too big. I imagine if you remove the poles often, the holes will enlarge & poles will become wobbly. I'm not bothered by the screwheads showing on the table top. (They did paint all exposed screwheads white.) The pieces aren't solid wood, maybe particle board? But it feels like wood and is very sturdy. I also purchased the Sophia's lemonade set & the some of the other Sophia's sweets sets to go with this set. Those sets are also very nice looking & I know my granddaughters will love arranging and rearranging the pieces on the table. I feel certain my granddaughters will love this set. (Make sure the pieces are properly sticker labeled before tightening with screws. Two of mine were wrong & I had to reassemble. Luckily doesn't seem to have affected stability.) Easy to assemble. Shouldn't take an hour, even for a novice.

Just ok and a little pricey.
This stand was easy to construct (though I had one piece mislabeled). It fits the American Girls pretty well and cute for displaying some of their little food and dishes. The stand for the banner does not fit well and will require my handy husband to glue and secure in better. The holes predrilled into the base are too big so it just falls out. My daughter purchased this with her own money and is not that thrilled with as it is a little difficult to get the dolls to sit and use the table well. The finish was nice and wood construction is pretty solid. Overall, I think its too pricey for what you get.

My daughter wanted the AG snack cart and patisserie but they were pretty pricey so I opted for this as an alternative with some other doll sized food items also purchased on 2DayDeliver and locally, as her gift from Santa. She thinks he built this for her and loves it! It is easy to assemble and gives her options to play it as a lemonade stand, patisserie/bakery, a table and chairs for her AG dolls...lots of play options and she has spent a lot of time playing with it. I am very happy with the product. I would have bought it locally but 2DayDeliver had a cheaper price so I bought it on here.

She loved the little banner signs that can be changed out
So cute! Daughter loves it. She'd wanted a bake shop and an ice cream cart, and this can be anything! She loved the little banner signs that can be changed out. One detail on that - the banners tie onto the wooden dowels with ribbon. Although she's learning to tie her shoes, she can't do this herself very well. So, another, easier way to attach the banners would have been better.
We got it on sale for $45, so it was a good value for a wooden furniture set for an 18" doll. I probably wouldn't have bought it at full price however.

Bad product. I returned it
This is not worth the $. Made badly. There were no hole-plugs included. So you could see the screw holes on top of the table piece. Ugly. One of the round balls, that attaches on top of the poles, was glued to the pole,( which was loose therefore it wiggled and leaned), making it impossible to attach the different upper sign/ banners.. If you tie any of the banners on the poles, they just slid down. Bad product. I returned it.

Worth every penny!!
I bought this for my twin 5 year olds to play with their American girl dolls. They love it!!! It's very sturdy and well made! Perfect size! The dolls sit in the chairs just right. I would definitely buy this as a gift for someone!!!

This is super cute and seems to be pretty good quality. I only gave 4 stars cause 2 of the pieces were labeled wrong which gave us a lot of stress when building it an hour before her birthday party! We figured it out and she seems to like it. The signs are easy to change and it's easy to turn into a plain table as well.

Cute, fairly simple to put together. Not a fan of the banners- they don't stay on well, and they seem to pull the posts in, instead of helping provide stability. My kids gave up using them after day 3- and I gave up on trying to fix them shortly after.

Signs are very sturdy and nice
As others have said, the parts are mis-labeled so make sure to line everything up before you start screwing.
Also, one of the inserts for the poles is bigger than the other so you really have to push one pole in while the other wiggles. Signs are very sturdy and nice, but would have loved to have them on velcro tabs or something else to get them to stay pretty longer
