Families in the 1950s would gather in the living room to relax, read the newspaper, or watch a favourite TV show together. This set includes: a three-tiered boomerang table that was a popular style at the time, a fun yellow lamp with a seashell-inspired scalloped base and a two-tiered shade that really lights up! A mini reproduction of TV Guide Magazine (to let Maryellen know when The Lone Ranger is on!) A newspaper from Maryellen’s town and a figurine of a poodle wearing 50s-style glasses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish table and great accessories! We were able to pick this up at a great price. Very cute. My daughter loves the lamp, tv guide, and the newspaper. The table is much larger than we thought it would be. Nice accessories for the livingroom. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Memory Lane A .lot of historic research went into all parts of this amazing set. The best feature of this set is the children's conversations that can be sparked by the polio vaccine reports in the newspaper or by reminiscing over the shows listed in the TV guide or by remembering the older style of furniture. The Fifties was the first decade to use plastic in furniture construction, so it is credible that Maryellen's side table is made of plastic. The boomerang shape so popular in Mid-Century décor is used three times to form the three layers of the stacked side table and again in the overlapping print on the lamp's double shade. The table accessories- a knickknack, a local newspaper, a TV Guide-were typically found in every Fifties living room. Poodles were chic, stylish and popular. Their image was created everywhere in the Fifties from hair styles to felt skirts as well as the kitschy pink poodle in Maryellen's living room set. This whimsical poodle also wears an iconic pair of black cat's eye sunglasses. Marvelous fun! The 1955 newspaper in Maryellen's living room reports on the newly discovered polio vaccine which has a direct bearing on Maryellen's story as a polio survivor. Get out your magnifying glass and enjoy reading a genuine TV Guide. What a treasure! Thank you TV Guide for allowing the reprint in miniature of your April 9-15, 1955 magazine. It was great fun reading listings of familiar Florida stations including an ad for "Lucky Channel 13" in Tampa and seeing the black cat logo and CBS logo. WTVT started as a CBS station on April Fool's Day in 1955 and didn't change to Fox 13 until the early 1990's. The listings, articles and ads are like a trip down memory lane...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessories I've had my eye on this for a while. I love the design and colors of the table. It's plastic and not super sturdy like some other AG pieces but overall I think it's fine. I am impressed with how large the lamp is. I wish the light stayed on longer, it shuts off very quickly. The poodle is bigger than I expected. I love the TV Guide and newspaper. Glad to have this to put with the couch and TV console. A little overpriced in my opinion though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Set We got this for our 5 1/2 yr old for Christmas. My mom and grandmother rave about how it looks like something they had in their homes in the 50s. The TV guide and newspaper are precious and a great way to talk about history with our child. The lamp is super cute. I wish the table were a little more sturdy/durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An adorable edition to Mary Ellen's room! I purchased this set today and am very pleased, although it's quite an expensive item for $74 Cdn. However I love all things from the 1950's, and the table is well made of sturdy plastic, and the lamp is TOO cute! It lights up, but doesn't stay on long; it shuts off after around 30 seconds. I find this annoying; I wish it would stay on until I turn it off. The little poodle is cute, and I love the 1955 newspaper and the darling TV guide. I wouldn't recommend this for young children, but it's great for collectors or older children over age 12.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute piece Bought this when it was on sale so it was worth the money. Nice addition to add to her Maryellen doll. Don’t have couch yet (basically cause it doesn’t look like a period piece). Hopefully before her birthday they’ll add more furniture. I would recommends this, it’s very cute in person.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great historical/period piece We love MaryEllen, and just had to pick this up while it was on sale. It is detailed, down to The newspaper and TV guide that you can actually read! Those items are paper, so play carefully! The dog statue and light are adorable, but I feel like there is not much play value; this is mainly for decoration. The light does come with batteries, and it times out so that you don’t need to worry about batteries wasting. Very cute overall. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the 1950s? I bought Mary Ellen's table recently in order to change my display. It is authentic to the 1950s, especially the lamp. It is sturdy enough to display other items. I now have a Thanksgiving feast on the three levels. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great as decor! This is a great item to round out Maryellen's collection, but I don't find it to have much play value aside from turning the light on/off. Neither of my daughters (7 and 9) play with it. It's more for decoration. Cute, but not for play. I prefer the wooden items to this mainly plastic set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really attractive retro table and lamp! I acquired the sofa so I just had to get the matching table! It's so adorable and I really like that you can also buy Christmas accessories for it to put out during the holiday season. I don't think I would have bought this BEFORE buying the sofa bed, but it certainly makes the sofa fit into a room better without having to add much else. I am not sure my kids are interested in this, it seems more for older youth who are interested in dated pieces, or for adults who like nostalgia. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So cute After buying a ton of furniture from AG, I was a little disappointed in this piece. I absolutely love the idea of it and the looks. The shape, the accessories, and the colors are so perfect! My daughter fell in love with the lamp. However, if I had to compare it to Maryellen's other pieces, it falls below par. I wish the table was more durable. It seems like a lightweight plastic that could easily be broken. I really hope AG modifies this because it's an adorable idea for a table! If it's only for looking at, definitely recommend this, but not for play. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! We love the living room set! So glad we got it to set up next to Maryellen's couch, it really completes the look! The lamp is so fun since it can be turned on and everything seems of good quality. I do always worry that paper items (the newspaper and tv guide) will get messed up b/c our kids do actually play with these sets, but so far they are fine. Being paper those items are more just cute and time period accurate. I love them, but they aren't great for actual play since they are paper! I would recommend getting this adorable set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ADORABLE I have had my eye on this set, but I never moved on it. I just purchased it on sell. Thank you AG! We all appreciate a good sale, we know it is not required, thanks again. Anyway, this is a Very nice set, and it is ADORABLE! The table is so stylish, as is the lamp, and the accessories complete it by defining the era. Now that I have it I think it is one of my favorites. If you grew up in the 50/60s or you just like that retro time period, this piece is a must! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great this is really cute. there is space on it. My daughter's other home made doll stuff would match this. I really want the gift card because they only have a doll apiece and home made stuff so something from american girl would brighten their spirits so please choose me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Accessories! This set is great to have with Maryellen's couch and completes her little living room. I had to explain to my daughter what a TV Guide is and what it was used for which was quite funny. She enjoys the lamp and how it lights up but like another review stated, it does turn itself off fairly quickly to save the battery. My daughter thinks the poodle looks a little mean with the cat eye glasses but I think it is absolutely adorable. I'm not sure how long the pretend newspaper will actually last but it is a fun addition especially given that it references Polio which is part of Maryellen's story. The table is made of plastic but is made well. We also have Maryellen's Party Punch set and it looks absolutely adorable on this table. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and fun. I love the look and colors of this product. I don't quite see why it was $58, much too expensive for an accessory of this nature, but it's fun to look at and play with! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The historical detail is amazing My parents had this exact type of furniture. I didn't think it would appeal to my daughter but she loved it! Even the TV guide has actual shows from the time period. AG never misses a detail. Will look great in our dollhouse which is some of the play factor. My daughter likes the little lamps that come on, but other than that, I don't see much playful uses. Interior decorating I suppose. A must have for collectors too. We saw the product in the store and it seems very nice. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Living Room Set We love this living room set. Everything about it, from the poodle to the table is super cute. My one complaint is that the light turns off so quickly that my kids spend most of their time turning it back on (and one wanted to use it for a nightlight, but couldn't because it stays lit for so little time). Absolutely adore the tabletop pattern! Great play value. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great set This is a great set, that looks beautiful in our doll's music room. The only reason we didn't give this set the highest ratings is because the super cute lamp has a battery saving function that didn't allow the lamp to stay on for very long. The set is plastic, but it is very sturdy. The design is exceptional.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A great piece for collectors Having collected many furniture pieces over the years, I feel this piece is not up to the excellent quality of the other items that I have purchased. The idea is great and a true 50's piece but it is made of cheap lightweight plastic. I don't feel it will hold up to play like the other furniture I have purchased. It's a collectors item only in my opinion. What a shame for such a nice piece!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set-unique! Absolutely loving Maryellen character and her whole collection! I love 1950's styles (in clothing and in furniture), so this set is an absolute design delight! Table is such an adorable and unique item, just absolutely love it! The colors and shape are perfect! Very original and functional piece - you can display lots of little items on multiple levels! Super cute! I added a little flower vase as well! The lamp is a great size, very substantial and nice solid yellow base and lamp shade is so adorable! The colors in this set go really well together, and all items are versatile! Extra accessories make the set even more fun to play with! I understand that the table is just plastic, but I still like it very much! I think the price point for this set is very attractive, it is very affordable! It was the first extra item I was able to add to my Maryellen doll purchase, so I am very happy overall! Would recommend it for the fun and for the affordability!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really cute! Love the poodle. This is a really cute addition to Maryellen's line. The table is a salmon color with multiple layers. The accessories fit on there nicely, and we added Julie's phone for an extra touch. The Poodle is definitely my favorite piece, though the lamp and the TV Guide are nice too. I did not care for the Vaccine newspaper. With so many other newsworthy things happening in the 50's it seems odd to make almost the entire paper about vaccines. One article maybe but not almost a whole paper. The rest of the set is cute though. We don't have Mary Ellen's Sofa but it looks nice next to the fold down sofa that came with Fun and Games table. We are looking forward to more 50's accessories for Maryellen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Accessories are best part! The best parts of this set are the accessories - the lamp, poodle, TV guide and newspaper!! The lamp is plastic, it has a very good weight to it. The lamp has a push button on off. The boomerang design is great! I also love the lacing (very 50's) on the shade!! The poodle is adorable (it is not ceramic). The TV guide and newspaper are perfect!! The TV guide is full of actual pages! To me the most disappointing part of this set is the table. The design is right, but it is lightweight thin plastic - very disappointing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect with the sofa bed! I purchased this in the Charlotte store today and it is just perfect with the sofa bed! Although it is mostly plastic, it seems substantial enough and the accessories are just too, too cute! Love the pink poodle statue and the lamp is so spot on for the 1950's. Probably not good with younger girls, but the 9 year olds and up should be okay with it.
