$50.00 Let's be honest. What you're really buying here is the Silkie Chicken, nest and eggs. That would probably be the item that prompted you into paying this price. The Silkie is actually really adorable. She's weighted with a nice amount of pellets inside, so she weighs a decent amount for her little size and sits very well. The faux fur used on her is nice quality, and she's a nice size. The embroidered feet are adorable! Her nest and eggs are plastic and fit her well. I think the nest and eggs are the same as found in the Wellie Wishers Chicken Coop but am not positive (similar enough, anyway).
The Garden is advertised with signs in the store as being for Blaire to plant vegetables. If that's what you wanted, then look elsewhere. This is a sort of window box with some flowers and herbs in it. No sign of vegetables. No sign of a garden, for that matter. The herbs and flowers are removable and look very cute, but the size, plastic and construction of everything really makes you think of Wellie Wishers. If they moved it to the Wellie Wishers area, more would sell. It just doesn't feel like an 18" doll piece. The basket is the same-but-lighter-color as the plastic basket in Kit's Gardening Accessories, if that helps anyone to know. The watering can is a cheap plastic and likewise sized for Wellies. I'm buying this set for my Nanea doll to have a chicken -- and she may use the garden as a window box, or else I'll use it with my Wellie Wishers.

Here are some additional pictures of my Nanea's Silkie Chicken. This is a really nice quality pet! What's proving to be very fun is the fact that it can wear a lot of the pet accessories. It fits really well in the pineapple skirt for Mele (comes in Nanea's Birthday Accessories), and it can also wear the old AG pet leash and collar perfectly! Some photos are included here, and more can be seen in my blog entry here: islandshiregazette.blogspot.com/2019/02/meet-flossie-naneas-pet-chicken.html
