Finally, an awesome tea set that inspires imagination! Jun 09, 2008
I have been on a mission to find the best tea set for my daughter. Well, this it! Fantastic quality, it is made from recycled milk jugs, the plastic is nice and thick. A bonus is that it meets FDA regulations so you can actually drink from the set without worrying about absorbing some crazy chemicals. The lids on the teapot and sugar jar are great because they are interchangeable, they stay on when you pour the tea, and yet they are easy for little hands to take off and put on. The packaging is also nice, it is three pieces of recycled cardboard, and one rubber band holding the spoons together. So easy to open! No tape or twist ties! And we can recycle the cardboard, and the rubber band is biodegradable. Wonderful! Oh, and the best part? MADE IN THE USA!!! My daughter absolutly loves this tea set, and has been playing with it like crazy. WAAAYY better than the annoying musical tea set out there, she didn't even want to play with that one.

Wonderful product Jun 28, 2008
By Marisa Tenaglia
We just received this tea set yesterday. I am thrilled with it for many reasons. The product is extremely sturdy, the package was so easy to open and recyclable and it is made here in the USA. Except for sleep, my daughter has not stopped playing with it. I will be recommending this to all my friends with children.

Green Toys will replace the teapot if it leaks! Nov 10, 2009
By One Quirky Mom
This is a great toy, and the packaging is wonderful! It is a rare toy these days that can actually be taken out of the package by the child who receives it!
We were disappointed that the teapot leaked, as another reviewer had noted. However, I e-mailed Green Toys about the problem, and they very promptly shipped a replacement teapot to my daughter, along with a hand-written note of apology. This teapot does not leak! Kudos to Green Toys for being very responsive to their customers!

Flawed Teapot Makes This A Very Poor Set Feb 02, 2011
By Wendy Lohr
I purchased this set for my daughter for Christmas. I like that it's recycled and safe. I like the size of the cups, this is a 'child' sized set, not a 'doll' or 'toy' sized set, meaning that the cups are a good size for a child to actually use. Therein lies the problem. Children want to actually USE a tea set. Not just pretend to pour tea or water but fill the teapot with an actual fluid and pour it out.
The teapot has two problems. One, the spout opening is level with the opening on the top of the pot where the lid rests, this means if a small child who is still learning motor skills tips the pot farther to speed up pouring it ends up dumping water out of the top of the pot making a mess. The BIG problem with this set is that the teapot LEAKS.
There have been other complaints about this. People have said they've contacted the company and were promised a non leaking teapot. Well, I got the set. I gave it to my daughter for Christmas and I had water all over the place. I thought it was from her being careless or messy. I watched her and found that no matter how careful she was being, water was leaking all over as she poured. I had to take it from her to save my floors. Talk about an upset child.
I emailed the company Christmas night. I did get a reply two days later saying that they are aware of the problem (but apparently still sell the defective sets!) and had "made efforts to stop this problem." They offered to send a replacement (non-leaking, I assumed) teapot "Monday when I'm back in the office." I replied that I did want a replacement.
That was December 28th. I JUST received the replacement teapot (sans lid) on January 31 one MONTH after I was told it would be sent! It arrived POSTAGE DUE! Guess what? It leaks just as bad as the old one. DON'T buy this product if you actually want your children to be able to play with and enjoy it without getting water (or tea) all over everything! I did tell Green Toys that I would be waiting on their reply and the replacement before leaving feedback on Amazon.

Worth the extra money for peace of mind!!! Made in USA! Jun 30, 2008
By C. Reed
This tea set is the best I've ever seen. It's made from recycled materials in the USA and is even okay'd by the FDA as safe even to eat off of! That's amazing. The style is very adorable, and the lids are even interchangeable. My daughter fell in love with this set right away.
BEST PART: This set came in a 100% recycleable box with no wires holding things together!!! The only other packaging with a rubber band holding the spoons together.
Please spend the extra money and support a safe, reliable and eco-friendly American company!
