about

Welcome to the Seaside Diner! It has features just like diners in the 1950s and more than 30 pieces to inspire hours of imaginative fun. The floor and counter-front are printed to look like tile, and the countertop is printed with a familiar 50s speckle pattern. A grill is attached to the back wall with oven doors that pull out to reveal a drawer for storage. Two dolls can sit at the padded corner booth, and two more can have a seat on the stools at the counter. This set includes a metal pedestal table with a rectangular top and everything needed to run a diner: order slips to hang above the counter so the cook can see what was ordered, two pretend made-to-order burgers that include meat, bun and condiments, pretend hot dogs, ketchup and mustard, a pretend chocolate malt, a pretend strawberry malt, two orders of pretend fries and paper trays, two pretend breakfasts of sausage, scrambled eggs and pancakes. A doll-sized striped fabric apron and doll-sized hats printed with the diner’s name plates with a 50s motif, tongs for turning hot dogs and a spatula for flipping burgers on the grill, a serving tray that dolls can carry, a bell to ring when an order is up, menus, printed paper placemats and a sheet of stickers to decorate the walls of the diner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Diner, but where's the Seafood??? Bought this darling diner last year along with the jukebox and absolutely love it; however, I do have one complaint...Why does a Seaside Diner not serve seafood??? We need some Fried Clams, Fish & Chips, Crab Cakes, Lobster or Lobster Tails, Crab Legs, etc.! If AG would just add these items, I would happily purchase them separately! Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Detailed and Crafted Diner I had previously purchased the OG Diner a few months before the AG Diner came up for sale, and I purchased this too. The quality of the materials and sheer size of the AG Diner is a steal at the sale price and worth the full price. I’m guessing it’s at least 20% larger than the OG Diner. Though the OG Diner came with more accessories, the AG Diner’s table and bench more than blow away the little, numerous accessories. They are well crafted pieces of furniture in 1:3 scale which is more than I can say for OG’s entire playset. Also the color on the AG Diner are lovely where the OG Diner’s is garish and honestly, color scheme more for a hole in the wall, small town restaurant than a hip diner. The accessories, like food, drinks, shakes, etc., were also at least 20% larger than OG’s. I added my vintage, pink, lithograph, tin kitchen set from Wolverine to the set for a diner kitchen, and it’s just perfect to play cook, serve, eat and hang-out. The only accessory that was kind of meh were the stickers. I chose not to sully my playset with them. Overall, I love the AG Diner! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and Sturdy I purchased this for my daughter and was surprised how sturdy it was. It looks awesome and will provide many hours of imaginative play. The only downside is I wish it had more food and plates included or even that AG would sell an add on food set because she likes to have all of her dolls to have plates. Otherwise, this is a great piece. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 11 year old gives it 5 Stars and here is why! Maryellen’s Dinner set is a toy that your whole family will love and enjoy and also it will make many memories. I’ve had so much fun with it already and played with it with my Dad, Mom and sister. I love all the accessories and I love the colors, and so many dolls can play at once. And also your dolls can sit up at the counter without falling over. And it comes with stickers that you can pull off and put back on and they stay. And the best thing is that you can fold it up. Maryellen’s Dinner set is definitely worth buying. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Christmas Present! I got this for Christmas of 2017. The cushions are soft and low enough for the doll to sit there and not stand or look weird. It comes with an apron for your doll. The little signs for the wall above the booth are adorable. The booth and table can move wherever you put them, but the stools cannot since there attached to the floor. It came with realistic food and it looks like a real diner. Loved this set!

I like that Maryellen can hang up the guest checks and can look at them while she is cooking! The apron is so cute! It folds up so nicely and has this secret compartment where you can put the food when you're not using it! It is used so much. The bell actually rings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and amazing detail! This Diner Set is adorable! Excellent quality, and amazing detail. It looks just like a real life diner you'd see in the 1950s. The diner furniture is exceptionally good quality and will provide hours of play. The food is much better than I thought it looked in the pictures. It is not flimsy hollow plastic. The food is solid and will with stand play. The hot-dogs and milk shakes were my favorite. When open the Seaside Diner can accommodate five or six dolls for a more enjoyable experience with your friends! I'm thrilled that this generation can now enjoy the 1950s diner experience with their dolls. While Diner is a large item, it does fold down quite a bit for storage and the play value is hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Toy! My daughter bought this and loved it! There are so many features, and ways to set it up! It is quite big, but it does fold up. It comes with a lot of realistic looking food, but it only comes with 2 menus and 4 place-mats. The hat that came with is made of paper and can break very easily. Even with those a few little things I think this set is definitely worth it for someone who is looking for a restaurant type set. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Fun! I bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughters (ages 8, 6, 5) to share. They absolutely love it and have been taking great care of it! They can spend hours just playing with their dolls with this set and using their imaginations. I love that they don't need to be "plugged in" when they play with their dolls. Great play set - expensive, but definitely worth it. Very durable and well-made. Cute accessories come with it too, such as food, plates, order chits, menus, etc. Love the vintage feel too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many ways to play We had one diner but I got another when it went on sale. Just in case we ever broke the first one or had missing pieces. Having them both set up takes up room but it gets played with almost every day. So many ways to arrange the pieces, the food items included are cute. Diner is by far my favorite large AG piece. All my kids of different ages play with this set and I find arranging the pieces is relaxing. The sale price is such a deal for the quality and hours/day/years of play that this set will receive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right quality product at the right price The story of MaryEllen is the story of my mother, right down to the soda shop, baton, roller skates, and green Castro convertible couch for a bed. I've invested in MaryEllen because I want my grand daughter to know her grandmother's story. I waited a long time to get the diner, mostly because it was difficult to afford. Just before the holidays last year, I noticed it went on sale and begged my husband to get it for me for Christmas. I'm SO glad I did, since I now see it in with the group of sale items that I know means they'll probably be discontinuing the item soon. This piece is the quality I came to know and love when I first started collecting American Girl dolls in the 1990s. Recently, I've noticed a number of items are coming out that don't have the same quality built-in. There are so many other play options out there for kids these days, but none rival the ability of the American Girl doll to instill values and ideals into our children. In a world where everything is so easily thrown away, these dolls and their accessories stand alone as something special to hold on to. My grandmother taught me the value of quality. I want to pass that down to my grand daughter as well. At the same time, I recognize the difficulty in keeping costs low on quality items and the Catch-22 of trying to keep sales up when something needs to be priced higher. I thoroughly appreciate how it might be necessary to provide options for lower-cost products to counter the lower sales rates on higher priced items. However, if the diner sold always at the cost it does now, I know I would have snatched it up more quickly. As to Maryellen's trailer, it is not quite at the same level of quality, but it is a piece I would like to get, given my mother and her camping trips. However, that is currently priced even higher than the diner's original price, so I may need to wait till you're ready to retire that one, too. I think if you can better match the price best appropriate to the quality items, you can gain more sales as opposed to folks waiting till it's on eBay to buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality & Detail This diner is amazing quality and detail! It is heavy and Huge! Be aware that the dimensions given are when it is closed. When it is opened it is twice that size, but that is wonderful and makes it comfortably accommodate 5 dolls at one time. You can have the cook, two dolls on the bar stools and two seated at the booth. It is very sturdy and will be an item that can be passed down again and again. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality, and fun interaciton! When I got Maryellen's Seaside Diner I was ecstatic! When I opened the box I was blown away on how realistic American Girl makes their doll sets. American Girl really captures the look of a diner in the 50's, and make it doll sized. I remember going to a diner looking just like this, I felt like I was in a diner! The interaction kids and their dolls can do with diner is AMAZING! You can open up the stove, you can ring a doll sized bell, you can open the back of the diner, you can rearrange the booth and booth table, you can create your own burgers, you can set fries on plates, and of course you can attend to your doll's food requests! The different seating options left me mind blown. Your doll has the option to sit at the counter top or on L shaped booth, i never expected a doll diner to have two options to sit! i loved playing with the diner and my dolls! I played with it for hours without getting the least bit bored! The color scheme really captures the color scheme in the 50's! So far with having the diner for a couple of days i have recommended it to everybody I know! I defiantly recommend this product, Seaside Diner, to anybody who loves American girl and having fun! Great job American Girl! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular. We bought this set for my daughter's 10th birthday, and not only did we get a HUGE reaction from her, but we were amazed at the quality and craftsmanship of the product. Every little detail is attended to. It's literally like owning a small piece of artwork. American Girl truly takes toys to the level of fine art. We love having this beautiful piece in our home, and plan to keep it for the next generation. Heirloom quality, and tons of fun for our girl right now. YES! I recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Cute, great price on sale We got this on sale for Christmas and my daughters adore it. The little booth is very sturdy and shiny and cute. This little foods, tray, etc. are precious. If we had paid full price for this I would have been disappointed: I don't really think the value would have been there. But on sale it is a great buy. If you have any small kids in the house, I recommend saving the paper menus, placemats, tickets, etc. for later, when they can be cared for by older kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Authentic, Sturdy Features This product made my daughter's birthday. There are features that make this product unique and worth the investment. As with all AG products, the toy is sturdy and made of quality materials. For example, the counter is slanted to allow 18 inch girls to sit effortlessly on the stools. The food is realistic. There are order tickets and menu items with real entrees so my girls can fulfill orders when they play with it. We use the jukebox with it, and it feels like a real diner experience. Additionally, it is designed to fold up so it doesn't take up a lot of space. I have two daughters, and because it is so well made, I know my both girls will have many years of play with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50's fun I waited till this was on sale but if I had paid full price it would have been fine. Like all AG products this is top of the line in quality and innovation.The Diner is made of a heavy wood and real vinyl. Everything has a realistic feel to it. It is huge and requires space but can fold up to fit smaller spaces or for storage. I just wish it had included a cash register.All dolls can use it just not Maryellen. If you have the space and have been on the fence whether or not to buy it now is the time. I highly recommend it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need more Burgers and food! I finally purchased the diner after eyeing it for several months. When it came on sale, I just couldn't pass it up. The diner is well built and sturdy for its size. A few minor details are missing....the "Seaside Diner" sign should have lit up, there should be more details on the kitchen side, and there should be MORE FOOD! I have several dolls and they can't all eat at once, they have to take turns eating because of lack of burgers, fries, milkshakes etc. Also, I would have liked a few more of the paper accessories (the hat, menus, order cards). Such small details/additions would have made this product so much better. Overall, very impressed and will be enjoying this diner for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge! This item was a Christmas gift for my 10 year old. It came in a HUGE box. Inside it was encased in styrofoam so if you are hoping to have a box to wrap it in, you will only have the outer shipping box to use. Anyhow, this diner is adorable. The booth seems to weigh as much as the big diner (probably not, but it sure seems as such) and it’s is very sturdy. Cute accessories and food items. I really wish it included a fridge or a better storage box/pantry to store the food, and wish it came with MORE tiny food pieces. The hat is almost impossible to put on the dolls head too. Regardless, My daughter LOVES it and is very impressed with the size as well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design for storage, girls love it for play We live in Southern California, and unlike our house with a furnished basement when we lived in the Midwest, toy storage in our current home is at a premium. The toy is 100% worth the space it takes up. While it folds nicely for easy storage, it still has a larger footprint than many of our toys. Both my kindergartener and my preschooler *love* this toy. They play with it separately and (gasp) together. As it has many little pieces, we did buy a small plastic storage bin for just the little pieces from the local big box store, and they have managed to not lose any of the pieces over the course of the year. I think that is because they love each detail so much, they notice when a piece is missing and go find it right away. Interestingly, they have their dolls play in the diner about 20% of the time, and they play with it without their dolls about 80% of the time. I think that is partially because it is difficult for them (if not impossible for them) to place the dolls in any static position in this set and have them 'stay still'. The dolls slip off the stools and out of the booth too readily. However, as I noted, the girls still love the set and still play with it frequently a year later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Amazing! Our 10 yr old daughter has been wanting this Diner for 2 years and it arrived today. She is delighted and it is truly amazing!! It is beautifully built (of wood) and just as beautifully decorated!! It comes with lots of fun items and the booth seating and table can be moved around or even used separately! This Diner is so versatile, so fun and so well built that it is definitely worth the money. So happy we were able to get this for our daughter. I will say that it is pretty large and heavy, bigger than the dimensions make it seem because it opens up. (And closes for storage) It can also be used in different configurations which adds to the fun. Our daughter opened it and added two more tables and chairs to make it look like a diner with extra seating! You and your girl will not be disappointed with this Diner!!

The paper baskets are just like the concession stand ones and I don't see them lasting that long. For the price that you pay for this I would've thought that something would light up or the stove work or have a blender for the shakes as with other higher-priced American Girl items I have purchased and love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Amazing AG produce I own! I have sat on the fence about this item for months. It's expensive and there is a much cheaper competitor product on the market and I was considering. I just couldn't find a way to justify spending this type of money on what felt like a few pieces of board and a handful a food pieces. Yeah, the wooden pieces are what make it worth more but my kids can't play with wood boards so it felt like a piece that wouldn't get much action. I even saw this in store twice and while both times I was impressed I was still hesitant. I did buy this on almost blind faith in the AG brand and that I would regret it if I bought the cheaper one because I know that one is all plastic and I'm always so pleased with AG quality. Getting this item set up in my own home and watching my kids play with it has changed my mind. This product was the best thing I ever purchased from AG. #1 reason is the play value that we get since my kids can actually play fully immersed in the set. My kids can be the "cook", the "waiter/waitress", the "customer". The set is large enough when fully opened you can have 6 dolls playing and/or up to 4 kids easily playing with this at the same time. There's enough seats and things to do on the front and back of the diner to keep multiple kids busy. There are so many ways to set up the diner since the wood pieces move. You can move the booth anywhere also. So a child can cook and then actually walk out and serve the guests and this makes the set so much more fun and realistic. The other competitor set has so much more food but the actual diner is so tightly compacted and there's no room for a child to play "in" it. They have to play "with" it from outside of the diner. That's a huge difference. I also splurged and got the fridge and jukebox and those items make the diner experience just awesome! But even without them the diner itself is still amazing. The food is so cute and applicable to a diner. I do wish AG gave some forks. Luckily we have utensils and food from other sets which really helps this set come alive. This set is worth it even with less food and it's easier and cheaper to get extra food pieces as you can. The large wood piece itself and the possibilities are what make it worth it and different than other diners or large doll furniture type items. Kids could have a great time with this set without using any dolls in the play. The Seaside Diner name does not light up but the way they made the letters it appears to be lit neon pink when there is a room light on behind it. Behind the name is a shelf that holds lots of extra food, menus ect. The stools are sturdy, real vinyl and easily hold the dolls up. The window is awesome because a child can be in the kitchen and taking orders and handing out orders through the window. This is not possible with the competitor brand since the booth is basically 2 inches away from the cooking area and there's no window. The booth is large, sturdy, real vinyl and can be placed anywhere for play (my 2 year old manages to sit on the booth and shimmy the table up to herself). The working bell is so cute!! As large as this piece can be for play it folds up to a very reasonable size for storage. The fridge and jukebox both fit with this product (up against the walls) on either side when it's opened. I wish the phone was real and AG should consider making a separate phone for purchase after the fact. A real phone would be so great, or maybe a phone booth in the same colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and easy to store This diner is very sturdy and well built, definitely stands up to opening and closing for easy storage. I'm impressed that the stools and booth are actually covered in vinyl as opposed to being solid plastic mimicking vinyl. The food that comes with it is great and fun to play with at the table and on the grill. I agree with many other reviewers that I wish there had been a few more food items (such a sodas, forks) but the ability to assemble burgers is very nice. The stools actually spin, the menus are a little flimsy and might've been better as laminated pieces so they last longer, and the stickers start to peel on the edges a bit after opening and closing a lot. We added push lights behind the restaurant name on top so that it looks like a real neon sign when you turn them on. Overall a good buy with lots of play potential for any of the American Girl dolls!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, Cool Diner! We just got Maryellen's Diner Set and are thrilled with it. I knew it was high quality after seeing it in the store and reading other reviews and now I can say with certainty that I am glad to have it. The booth and bar stools are perfection, love the faux glass wall look and all of the little details that make it realistic. Our girls loved the bell, the ketchup & mustard and of course all of the food. The food itself is a great quality and perfect diner food, but I do wish there was more. For example, there is only 1 chocolate malt & 1 strawberry malt....would've been nice to have 2 of each and maybe some sodas too. Also wish the phone was a 'real' phone and not just a sticker. Overall a cool set and even better looking in person than online for sure! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the $$ This is an amazing piece! Lots of accessories and the materials used for the seats are just like you'd find in a real diner. I wish there was a bit more food though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cost is hard to swallow although the idea behind this is a good one, and the item itself is well made, at $365.00 it is a way overpriced. it IS a toy afterall

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the diner! With money I got for Christmas and my birthday I bought this diner and I am so glad I did! It is worth the price and is a wonderful product! It is great for play or to collect like I do. I love all the food items that come with it, but wish I could buy more and have more of a variety of food. I would be willing to purchase separately. If your considering this, it is worth it. So cute and realistic and just like the 50s. Thanks AG for providing a wonderful product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable diner I just purchased this set for my daughter's birthday. It is so cute. So far it has been a big hit with my daughter and her friends. The best feature of this diner is the versatility. It can be opened all the way, half closed, fully closed, so many options. I like how the booth and table are freestanding as well. It is easy for the girls to be behind in the kitchen and out in the restaurant area. I have seen other sets that are fixed in place and I think they are harder for girls to play with. Another plus would be the stools. It is easy for the dolls to sit on them. I think the styling is perfect, the colors, materials, and it is very well made. My only suggestion for improvement would be to include more food items. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of fun imaginative play I bought the diner for my granddaughter. She is five and I first saw it when my daughter and I drove her three hours to take her to the nearest AG store. As soon as I saw it I fell in love with it and I ended up ordering it online for her to have as a surprise when she came to visit me.She plays with it for hours. She used her own money she saved and bought the jukebox to go with it. I love the details they put into making it look like an authentic 1950's diner. It is built solid and sturdy with plenty of room for multiple dolls. She has room to put three dolls in the booth and two on the stools with room for another at the grill and another two working at the counter. With the list of AG dolls she wants she will soon have her third doll for the booth and another waitress. She also uses the waffle maker and tea set with the diner. I love watching her play with this item so much I already ordered her the kitchen as a gift for this coming Christmas. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this diner! I hesitated before purchasing this diner because of the price, but I'm so glad I bought it. I love the appearance and the quality. I wish it came with more food, but the food it does come with looks good. I also wish that the paper pieces were laminated so that they would be more durable, but overall, I am highly pleased with this purchase. It is so cute and is something that gets played with all the time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality This is one of the best AG large items. The diner is very sturdy, which ensure durability. There are some plastic items, such as the tong, spatula and serving tray, that perhaps could have been made of a more durable material to go along with the rest of the diner. There is NO silverware to eat breakfast with, not even a spoon. This seems to be the rule for many AG items. Not sure how the dolls are supposed to pretend eating breakfast without silverware. For the price of these items, one would think that silverware would be included. Overall, we are very happy with this purchase. There is a lot of attention to detail, which is nice. I am especially happy with the quality as lately the quality of some of the AG items has gone downhill, while keeping the same high end prices. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Large Purchase from AG! My daughter received this for her 10th birthday and this thing is amazing. The play value is outstanding! It has breakfast food as well as dinner food and the dolls fit comfortably on the stools or in the benches. Very excited about this purchase! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EVERYONE LOVES IT Everyone in my house loves it. My 9 year old son loves to play with it when I get it out just to admire it or when I get it out when my 9 year old niece comes over to play. It may be from American GIRL, but it certainly isn't just for girls. They play with it without dolls a lot of the times. They love taking orders, pretending to cook, serving the food ( all things both males and females might do in life like during high school or college... hence a server in a restaurant, working at a fast food place ( which those jobs can lead to many promotions and maybe they end up owning a franchise!). It teaches life schools in a playful way. They also use please, thank you, your welcome... plus they learn about tips and have to work out the math! Also it may help younger kiddos learn to read. There is much more to this toy than just being a toy for girls and their dolls. I'm 37 and love things from the 50's. It is amazing in quality! I really like how the hamburgers are molded so the sandwiches stay together. I like that the bench isn't attached because it makes it easier for the dolls to fit. I do agree with the reviews that it should have an actual phone, not a sticker phone. I didn't put that sticker on because it just doesn't look right. I'm not from the fifties but my grandma is and she can't believe how realistic the counter top and table top look and feel. The same goes for the bar stools and bench. Also just the whole look takes her back. In summary I believe it is worth the money. There is so much more to it then it being just a toy. It teaches manners, math, reading, and history. It is sturdy and the accessories are well made. It looks and feels authentic (except the sticker phone). It isn't a gender specific toy (or age specific either). I only gave "Product Appearance" a four because of the phone sticker. Well done American Girl! You really did wonders with Maryellen and her items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bEST PERCHASE EVER My Granddaughter's 1st AG doll was Maryellen so it was a must to get the diner. What a GREAT investment!!! We get hours of play with this set and it's so realistic to the diners in the 50's. She loves to ring the bell when the orders are ready. All the seating and tables are well made and the dolls sit so nicely on the stools at the counter. I also like when it's time to clean up, the diner folds up nicely. This set is worth adding to your collection of AG dolls. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I bought Maryellen's diner for my daughter and she loved it. She will spend hours playing with her dolls. The bell actually works there is a table and the stools her dolls can sit on and it comes with all the food and condiments like you would get in a real diner. I was really impressed with the design and quality, it's was worth the price [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
