Dolly Review: The Queen’s Treasures 1930’s Style Stove

This week, I’ll be posting a few reviews on products from The Queen’s Treasures. I first came into contact with the line at Toy Fair where I received a tour of the booth from the owner, Joann.

Last month, I received a few items for review from the company. All the pieces I received were from a series themed around the Salvation Army Doughnut Girls. Long story short, in 1917, a Salvation Army ensign and her team was tasked with bringing comfort to the solders fighting in World War I. They decided the best way to do that was to give the soldiers a taste of home and began making doughnuts. The doughnut girls are an important part of the Salvation Army’s legacy and still today, the Salvation Army remembers their story during annual Doughnut days.

Now, onto the review!  For review is a 1930’s Style Stove.  This 1930’s Stove is so cool. I love the look and feel of the 1930’s, so it’s no surprise that I am a fan of this unique piece of 18″ doll furniture.

This stove is hand crafted out of wood. Because of that it feels much sturdier than other plastic doll furniture. The company has a passion for putting together well crafted furniture pieces for 18″ dolls and this piece showcases that.  It is scaled well to your traditional 18″ doll, like American Girl.  One leg of my stove is a little shorter than the other three, making this piece of furniture wobble a little.

The design, in terms of color, is simple. This stove is off white with details done in black. Equally simple are the small black decorative elements, seen on the oven and second drawer. I think its elegant look is very 1930’s. The three drawers open and close easily with the use of a ball bearing.

You can open the oven and even pull out the inside tray. Again, none of these pieces are made of plastic.
