I posted this on my Tumblr a long time ago before this blog existed so I am going to re-post it here because the Lalapoosy and Woodzeez collections are too adorable and awesome to not talk about :D
Li’l Woodzeez Bakery Shop
I had been eye-ing this Li’l Woodzeez Bakery Shop for a long time and after reading the super detailed review from the Toy Box Philosopher, I decided to buy it. I won’t post tons of photos because The Toy Box Philosopher already showed many great photos.
I bought it mainly because the set is gorgeous and the miniatures are so detailed and you can’t beat this quality! At only $20, this is a bargain! I just checked the price again today and it's on sale right now at Target :) If you can't find it at Target anymore, you can still get it at Amazon here but for a higher price.
What was truly fantastic was that each muffin, cookie, croissant, cupcake, pie, etc, is actually and individual piece that you can take out of the tray like you can see in the photos above. You can even take out the gingerbread man! This is a big plus because usually the food is stuck to the trays like with the toys from Strawberry Shortcake or Lalaloopsy’s mini dolls.
I also bought it because it is scaled perfectly for my Lalaloopsy’s and Strawberry Shortcake’s dolls. In the photos I used Berry from the Berry’s Kitchen set. She fits so well in this bakery with her apron and her little glove. The chair is from Crumb’s Tea Party set (another Lalaloopsy doll).
The bakerycomes with 85 pieces listed below (taken from the Woodzeez Website):
1 bakery, 1 measuring cup, 1 flour bag, 1 shelf, 1 counter display, 1 round table, 1 cupcake stand with 9 cupcakes, 2 cakes, 3 slices of cake, 1 flower vase, 9 pies, 2 milk bottles, 1 mixing bowl, 1 donut tray with 6 donuts, 1 cookie tray with 6 cookies, 1 muffin pan with 6 muffins, 1 croissant tray with 3 croissants, 1 baguette basket with 5 baguettes, 1 rolling pin, 1 lump of dough with 1 cut out piece, 1 ginger bread man cookie cutter, 1 ginger bread man cookie, 10 loaves of bread, 1 open/closed door sign, 1 apron, 1 baker's hat, 2 oven mitts.
All the children I babysit are mesmerized by this bakery and the mini dolls and they spent hours playing with it. Truly a great buy!
Li'l Woodzeez Honeysuckle Hollow General Store
The next photos are the Lalaloopsy Mini Dolls Crumb’s Tea Party and Alice in Lalaloopsyland in Li’l Woodzeez Honeysuckle Hollow General Store (available at Target or Amazon too).
In my opinion the General Store is not as cute as the Li’l Woodzeez bakery. But it comes with 90 pieces and very well made miniature food and objects. With a price tag of only $20 it is really a good purchase.
What I really like was the little brown canvas bag in which you can put merchandise in. Now the Lalaloopsy dolls have a place where they can buy what they need :)
You get a total of 90 pieces in the General Store (the list is from Li’l Woodzeez Website):
1 general store, 1 counter, 2 small jars of jam, 2 large jars of jam, 2 jars of peanut butter, 2 jars of chocolate spread, 4 large plates, 2 small plates, 2 bottles, 2 jars of preserves, 1 coat hanger, 1 small can, 2 large cans, 2 milk cartons, 1 cheese wheel, 1 apple basket, 1 strawberry basket, 1 tomato basket, 1 banana basket, 1 green pepper basket, 1 carrot basket, 2 flower pots, 1 shovel, 1 welcome sign, 1 candy stand, 2 thread spool, 1 sugar barrel with 1 scoop, 1 broom, 3 bars of soap, 2 egg crates, 2 bags of flour, 1 box of dish soap, 1 box of laundry soap, 1 dust pan, 1 pair of scissors, 1 hand shovel, 1 small rake, 1 watering can, 1 door sign, 2 baguettes, 1 potato sac, 3 seed cards, 3 apples, 1 bag of soil, 2 canvas bags, 2 rolls of fabric, 1 apron, 1 food scale, 1 jar with 3 lollipops, 12 jars of bubblegum.
The store and bakery are great additions to Sylvanian Families (aka Calico Critters) toys, Lalaloopsy Mini Dolls, and Strawberry Shortcakes Mini Dolls too since they are all about the same scale. The Sylvanian Families food items are smaller though and I won't let my 3 year-old nephew play with them because he drops them all the time. But he has no problem handling the Woodzeez items since they are slighty bigger and somewhat just the right size for his little fingers.
Caution: Some children still put small items in their mouth at 3 or even 4 so it's best to know the child before letting him/her play with such small toys!
