I have mentioned before that my daughter loves tea like her mother. She has many tea sets that she likes to play with but this is one of my favorites. Before she was born my mom found this plastic tea set that was in the Old Country Roses pattern which is the pattern of my China. We knew she would have to buy it. My daughter loves that her China matches mine and her American Girl dolls can drink from Old Country Roses at their tea parties. I love the fact that they are plastic and I don't have to worry when she plays with them that they will break. It warms my heart to see my daughter having tea parties. I know it will always be a special bond between us. I would love to find this tea set in stores again but I have not seen it anywhere. I guess she will have to keep these until she is old enough for her own Old Country Roses tea set.
