I bought this for my mum as a christmas present as she has always wanted a set. After ordering the delivery was swift and i inspected the doll for any blemishes and was pleased to find that there were none. All the dolls in the nest matched perfectly well with their brightly painted design, the connections of the dolls were secure but not so stiff as to be difficult to separate and damage any part of the wood or paint design. The dolls paintwork is of a good standard and are laquerd so i guess if it is a toy for everyday use eventually over the course of time the varnish would possibly wear away. I bought this toy for an adult and as such it will not be going through the rigors of child use.My purchase is very satisfactory and fulfills its obligation as a set of dolls that have been desired for a long time but never actioned until now.
My overview of this product is very good value and i know it has brought pleasure to mum, so if she is happy then i am happy and iwould order from this supplier again if the need arises.
