about

Food in the 1950s was starting to become faster in the form of cans, casseroles, and frozen dinners, which meant more time for families like Maryellen’s to spend together, or even watch TV while they ate! Fully stocked with pretend food that Maryellen would have loved to eat, this retro fridge gives a peek at what was on the menu in the 1950s. This 26-piece set includes:
  • A perfectly pink retro fridge with a door that opens to reveal a freezer on top with an extra door, drawers, shelves, and a butter holder
  • Two TV tables that work like the real thing and fold for storage, with a fun ’50s pattern and a stand to hold them
  • An ice cube tray with ice cubes that lift slightly at the touch of a handle
  • Three frozen TV dinners with beef, chicken, and pasta that come out of their boxes
  • Two bottles of milk
  • Four bottles of soda
  • A casserole dish with a meal inside
  • A fancy plate of gelatin
  • A cooked ham with all the trimmings
  • Jars of relish, jam, mustard, and jelly
  • Four sticks of butter
  • A frozen treat that dolls can really hold

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Fun! Bravo, AG!! This fridge with all the accessories is one of my favorite items for my AG doll collection, second only to Maryellen's Diner! The fridge looks almost identical to the one my family had when I was a girl. Sadly, ours wasn't pink! We had the same type of ice cube trays, too! This set really takes me down memory lane! Please make more quality items from metal instead of cheap plastic, AG! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fridge! This fridge is so fun!! My grand kids have so much fun playing with this—especially my youngest, who loves taking things out and putting them back in. It is so cute! The quality is great. I love the frozen dinners—so realistic. All of the food inside is so a part of the 50’s. I did eventually take the TV dinners and popsicles out of the boxes, and put the boxes away, because my grand kids were ripping the little boxes trying to get the food out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, Quality, Quality! This refrigerator set is probably the highest quality piece that AG is offering right now! It is VERY impressive. Made out of a nice, heavy salmon colored metal, ( the interior is plastic) it holds LOTS of included fun, play food goodies. I love that the TV dinners come out of their authentic cardboard boxes and are SO detailed. Girls will play with this for hours! I also love how historically accurate this color of pink is to the 1950's! Pastel colored kitchen appliances were all the rage back then! Please AG, make a nice, metal matching pink or pastel colored 50's stove to go with this! I am CRAZY about this piece. I feel like it will be an AG heirloom piece in the future! Soooo well made! Two very enthusiastic Thumbs Up for this amazing fridge. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute, great quality!! My daughter saved up money to buy this and she hasn't been disappointed. The refrigerator I saw great quality, very heavy, lots of cute food included. All I would change would be to have the tv diner boxes be laminated, im afaid they won't last too long with just normal play. Overall a great toy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Daughter loves this set! My daughter loves this set and the food that came with it. Fridge is great quality, metal frame so pretty heavy and secure. She really likes the details with all the food, especially the soda bottles, ham and jello mold. The only downside is the boxed food (TV meals and popsicles) are very tough for her to open. She accidentally ripped one of the boxes trying to get it open because it was so tight-fitting. I had to tape the lip of the box for extra support so it doesn't rip further. I feel like AG should switch these cardboard boxes to the flexible plastic equivalent so that this doesn't happen, as we had the same problem with the soap box from the hotel set purchased for Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storage I got this refrigerator for my daughter last Christmas and she loves it. It was very fun for my daughter to open up all the food pieces and setting it up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super Food, Short Fridge, Flimsy Tables Like: ~ The fridge is actually made of METAL and not plastic. ~ The compartments inside are so realistic and I can see kids having so much fun stocking their fridge. ~ All the little foodstuffs are beyond adorable and have tons of play value. ~ The historical accuracy of the design and the food included is wonderful down to the TV dinners that slide out of their matching boxes. Didn't Like: ~ It is shorter than Maryellen! I understand that 1950s refrigerators were smaller than the ones we have today and would have been shorter than an adult, but shorter than an eight-year-old? I'm disappointed that the scale is so off. ~ The TV tables are very flimsy plastic. I snapped the tops on just once and there are already gouge marks. The directions included say you need to do this every time you take them down to put them on the stand so I can't see these lasting long at all. ~ I wish the eggs weren't glued into the door. I know there are safety concerns, but this is designed for 8 and up and being able to remove them would have increased the play value. ~ I personally wish it wasn't pink. It seems a very trendy color for a family who (according to Maryellen's books) was on a budget. I think white or even light aqua would have been a more accurate choice. Overall, I debated whether to purchase this for a while, but the fact that it is made of metal finally pushed me over the edge. With all the incredible detail in the food I don't regret it, but I'm still let down by the quality of the tables and the height. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Almost perfect A friend of mine purchased maryellens fridge for me and brought it back to the UK for my daughter as a Christmas present. The details are excellent and I love that the fridge is metal. However the door is quite heavy and the bottom hinge was broken when we took it out of the packaging. This item would be perfect if the hinges were metal instead of plastic. It's a real shame since we can't just pop back to the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this refrigerator! This set was one of those that when it first came out we knew we were going to have to buy it! Play food and furniture are our favorite things to do with our dolls. We like to stage a lot of scenes and play. I love the butter holder and the eggs! The tray tables are classic but probably something we play with the least. We don't use them much at all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy, fun fridge!!! We bought the refrigerator to go along with our gourmet kitchen, to set it up like the Chicago store had. So far we have used with our new Mary ellen's Diner and it is fun, love the casserole and jello mold! I really wish they would start using coated plastic in place of all the cardboard and paper, the TV dinners are hard to get out of the boxes and we tore them on accident. I laminated all the placemats and menu's. It is a good, fun buy overall. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this fridge! I am so glad I tried my kids (myself) to this fridge. I don't think the kids appreciate the nostalgia of the items the way I do. The fridge itself is a nice sturdy, heavy piece (not too heavy). I love the coral pink and pastel mint colors since these colors run throughout Maryellen's collection. The fridge door opens easily yet stays shut. I do wish there was more space in the fridge itself and the freezer compartment. The freezer has a large block of plastic (I think it's suppose to be an ice machine) but it takes up 40% of the entire space. I also wish there were not 2 missing eggs. As an adult I don't mind 2 missing eggs but every kid who looks at the fridge tells me there's 2 missing eggs. It comes with a decent amount of food items (no AG item comes with a ton of food) but the pieces you do get are so awesome. A ham with pineapple slices around the edges ... a circular jello mold ... casserole in a pink bowl ... I love all these food representations from the 1950's. My kids didn't know what these items were so it was fun explaining the era a little. When I opened the meatloaf frozen dinner and gave it to the 2 year old she said "dog food". I kind of wish the jello was permanently stuck to the plate. 4 sticks of butter is a lot but seeing the frozen dinner boxes with a piece of button on all the foods makes sense that there would be 4 sticks. This set looks awesome in the diner and the diner perfectly fits it right next to the grill when you have the smallest flap bent. Every restaurant needs a fridge, right? The fridge is expensive and luckily I got it on sale but eventually I would have broken down and paid full price, it was worth full price. The sturdy well made fridge and amazing little food pieces makes this fridge one of my favorite AG purchases of all time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Fridge This fridge is so very well made. Solid and true to the time period. Bought to go with Mary Ellen's Diner which is also very well made. Yes this fridge is expensive as well as the Diner, can certainly buy cheaper sets, but not that much cheaper. I do feel this set will be around for a very long time because of the quality. Not all AG sets are worth the high price but this one is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great authentic 50's refrigerator. Great details. Foods that can be used for every day meals, great for Holidays. It comes with a lot of food. The T.V. dinners are detailed to look like they did then. The boxes they come in have so much color and detailed to look realistic. It is worth the price for all the items that comes with it. The T.V. trays work well with dolls sitting on the princess pet bed and the galaxy pet bed. I put their feet through so that the tray goes over the lap. The pet beds are a good height for that . Add the T.V. dinner and it makes a cute setting. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute! This fridge is adorable! It's quite heavy and feels like metal. The food is cute and plentiful. My only complaint would be that the labels on some of the jars have the lettering right over the plastic seams and it might be a little too heavy for smaller children to cart around, but it's still a wonderful piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retro Refigerator! Maryellen's refigerator is difinitely a high quality piece. After opening it, I was pleasantly surprised to learn it is heavy and made from what appears to be metal. The door opens and closes easily and I love that it has a freezer and a storage drawer. The only thing I would change is the permanently attached eggs. It would of been more fun if you could actually remove them from the door and play with them. I'm willing to overlook the egg issue, since the fridge comes with plenty of fun and adorable foods. Every piece is so spot on and true to Maryellen's era. I just love the realistic looking jars of condiments, milk, and soda. My favorite is the TV dinners! I'm glad you can remove them from the box so your dolls can enjoy their meal! Well done on this set American Girl! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

It is very good quality, the fridge is real metal. I love all the details. The TV dinners actually come out of the boxes and look like real TV dinners. Too adorable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love how american girl made this fridge metal. I love the tv dinners, they are so cute. The one thing I would change is making the eggs able to come out instead of the dolls never eating their eggs [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing detail and so much fun This refrigerator and food set is adorable. The details are perfect. It is just like my grandmother's right down to the ice trays. The quality is also excellent. It is heavy and substantial. You don't need to be gingerly with it. My 8 year old got this for Christmas from her grandmother and has really enjoyed it. She was relieved that Maryellen finally had some food in our house to eat after living with us for over a year... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Pink Refrigerator This fridge is absolutely adorable and the attention to detail is amazing. The drawers within for food storage and the storage on the doors of the fridge are very realistic and the eggs, TV dinners, ice cube trays are so "1950" too. My grand daughter absolutely loved this and all of her friends can't keep their hands off it. It sparks a great deal of imaginative play! I would recommend this to all as it is well made and includes a lot of refrigerator stuff to play with over and over. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Accessory/furniture set ever! I have bought so many furniture sets throughout the years and this one is my favorite. The refrigerator has a metal casing and it comes with a bunch of vintage style food. All 3 of my kids have had a blast playing with all of the intricate details. Great value for the price! It is just a must have for anyone who is setting up a doll house or just enjoys the realistic AG doll food. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fridge I really like this item it's really high quality metal very heavy but that is really realistic. It's really cool that the TV dinners and the popsicals come out of the box. There are three different TV dinners in this set. this set comes with a lot of very cool items. The refrigerator has three compartments and a shelf for all the jars and in the freezer there is a place for the butter it holds a lot of item in the main two shelfs. I like the colors they go well with the kitchen. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If You're on the Fence, Buy it! It took me a long time to purchase this fridge because I was hesitant of the cost. I finally made the plunge and I am SO pleased that I did. It's a must-have, can't-live-without item for your American Girl collection! Yes, it is a sturdy plastic and so are the components, but I feel that's how it should be. I love all the details that go into this fridge. There are SO many little items that make up this item that it encourages hours of play time. The little trays and tray holder, and the freezer meals...the details that went into this fridge are impeccable. Really, American Girl did a great job with this one. It finishes off our kitchen nicely! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously?! Seriously AG? So amazing! I've had my eye on this for my daughter's and my own collection and finally we got it yesterday. The order arrived quickly which is always good for impatient collectors, and the quality is amazing. The refrigerator itself is beyond sturdy. All metal and HUGE. The items inside are made very well and are realistic. Our collection has a lot of food in it, so we will have so much fun loading up this accessory with other food items from AG. One of the best made items we have purchased. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retro & PINK!!! As a child of the 50's, l couldn't resist this purchase. My Aunt actually had a pink refrigerator, stove, washer & dryer. Some people have said that the TV trays are useless, but they work wonderfully with Maryellen's couch. I have 4 granddaughters & even the 12yr. old love's it. It's fun to show them what things were like when I was a little girl. There was always jello in the fridge. The metal ice cube tray is historically accurate & so cute. TV dinners were a luxury. Definitely worth the $. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great throw back! Love that Maryellen's whole collection reminds me of simpler times. The refrigerator itself is heavy and sturdy, a great quality piece. Love the jello mold, ham, and all of the great fridge food it comes with. The tv dinners and trays add so much to imaginative play, wow! The drinks are awesome. I do wish it'd come with more than 1 popsicle in the box.... other than that though, no complaints here! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings back memories of Grandma's house My daughter and I love the fridge! First time in a couple years that my high schooler was excited over a toy! I have been telling her how much it was like my Memere's fridge when I visited her in the late 60's. And how upset I was when they replaced it. It is such a work of art!!! I remember the ice tray! We had ham like that with the pineapple and cherries. And the classic Jell-O mold. The milkman brought milk in those glass bottles. I remember the TV trays. So many great memories! Will go great with KIT's stove. Recommended!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kudos to the design team By far, one of my daughter's (and mine) favorite pieces. My daughter loves to play with it alone or with her dolls. It is extremely durable, even a little heavier than I expected. There's nothing cheap quality about it... Although I must agree with another review. The TV dinners are a bit snug in the boxes. Just removing them over time will wear it out in a short period of time. That'd be the only complaint. I love the adorable ice tray. Ice lifts but doesn't come out. It's so nostalgic. There's more than enough space to store the supplied food and all the food from the slow cooker, milkshakes, and much more. The draw holds a lot too. I'm VERY glad that the eggs don't come out. I would've had nightmares about keeping up with them and stepping on them. The ham is very detailed and so cute. It doesn't come off its platter like the jello mold but that's great. There's also plenty of soda for 4. I'm just in love with it. Great job on the design and details. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic Love this fridge! There are a lot of realistic, great food items. I was disappointed the eggs didn't come out, but I'm sure there is a reason for it. It was number one on my daughter's wish list and she was thrilled. The TV trays seem cheap to me. The whole fridge also appears front heavy when the door is open. It didn't stand nice, but we also had it on carpet and have not tried it on a hard floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ectremely Impressed When this arrived I was extremely impressed. This is not a flimsy plastic piece of doll furniture. It is metal and extremely sturdy. And since I was a little girl in the 50's I can say it is authentic. There is a great assortment of food items to go into the refrigerator. I love that there are TV trays to hold the TV dinners. I would recommend this to any American Girl Doll owner but it is a must if you have Maryellen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect New Item for Maryellen The Maryellen Refrigerator is one of her best!!! This is quality made. The refrigerator is so heavy made of real metal. It looks authentic to the ones in her day. Plenty of storage for all the food that comes with it to fit nicely. There is even more room if you buy additional food sets. The TV tray set is so cool to have with it. The only thing is I wish they made the tray tables s little taller and wider so slide up over her legs when she sits on the couch. Other than that, it's perfect. The food pieces have nice details. I love the Traditional ham dinner that would be served back in her day. The TV dinners are perfect too. only thing I wish they made the cardboard boxes they come in a little bigger. The ends of the boxes are so tight when you go to open it can rip the end. This really is an exciting set. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Mary Ellen Item So Far Received the Mary Ellen refrigerator last month. My granddaughter absolutely loves it. She had never seen a refrigerator with a small freezer compartment inside, so she got a history lesson from me about what our refrigerators used to be like. She was thrilled with the T.V. trays and frozen food. She totally rearranged her doll house to display the pink refrigerator! I would recommend this purchase to any American Girl fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful addition for dolls I recently purchased this item to go in the diner. It is so cute and I just love all the food accessories that are included. The snack trays are a tad short but work fine. The TV dinners are a flash back to my childhood! My Granddaughter is going to love it! The only minor flaw is a tiny "nic" on the door handle that is a factory issue that AG should consider fixing. Since they all seem to have it I kept mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutest little fridge ever! Both my daughter & I love this refrigerator. There's a ton of pieces for it, but it has extra space if you want to squeeze additional things in too. It's very sturdy, and is encased in metal (except for the door & back). It reminds me of my grandmother's old house. My only complaints are that when sitting on carpet, the fridge leans forward slightly. Also, the tiny cardboard boxes that the frozen food come in, while SUPER cute & detailed, are also SUPER DUPER difficult - even for an adult - to open without almost destroying them. I took the food out & put them away so they wouldn't get lost/damaged. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best items ever made by AG This item has just about everything your doll will need to have meals with friends. Love the metal outside, the TV dinners are colorful and look exceptionally real and delicious. The TV trays are a good size and will most likely bring fond memories for anyone growing up in this period of time. This item goes so well with several of the food and dining pieces that AG has already made. The quality, thought and character that has gone into creating this piece is outstanding. I too am hoping for matching pieces to come along. The price is very good for what you get with this item. It will keep you wishing you could join them join them for a meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY IMPRESSED When I first saw the frig online, I thought, cute but way too pricey. When I read akvdale's review and learned that is was made of metal, I decided to give it a serious look. I waited one week to be sure I really needed (wanted) it. I have a really nice refrigerator already, but I love this style! So we picked it up last night and I am thrilled with my purchase. This piece is real "Pleasant Company" quality. I checked it out very thoroughly. It's heavy, the door hinges are solid, the inside is also nicely put together. The food items are adorable, just be careful opening the boxes with the frozen dinners and the popsicle. The way the box flaps were cut, makes them catch and it would be very easy to accidently rip the box. The food is a good scale to the dolls. I no longer think this set is over priced. The quality is A-one, and METAL IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN plastic. I have two minor cons. I do wish the frig was about 3" taller, and the TV trays are useless because they are way to small for the AG dolls. They'er still cute. I hope AG puts out a matching Range next year!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to American Girl Quality!! The refrigerator is Metal!!!!!!!!!! Thank you AG!!!!!!! I feel that this is finally AG quality for Maryellen!! Very heavy quality perfect workmanship! Love the TV dinners they look just like the dinners of 50's! One of my favorite details is the ice cube tray, it has an arm lift up to remove ice, just like the old cube trays did - and it lifts up the pretend ice a little bit!!!! Even the popsicle box has one in it!! I would have found this perfect if the eggs were separate - they are stuck in the refrigerator door!! The TV trays would have better if they were metal not plastic. Overall, this is a must have!!!

It is so much better in person and what a great addition to to Maryellen's collection! Aside from the pink color, it is exactly like the ones from the 1950's. And the TV Trays? WOW! And the TV Dinners? Another WOW! I always have a Christmas display of my AG dolls, and I am going to use Maryellen again this year! As a child from the 1950's, what wonderful memories from a wonderful era! Bravo American Girl! And the Christmas set, although kind of pricey is also awesome! Love it all!
