The Elusive Dining Room

During my several years searching e-bay and the internet I have never run across any parts of the Dining Room set. On the This Old Toy website they say about the Dining Room, "This one-year-only set is so hard to find that we have never seen the set nor any accessories to this set. We are beginning to wonder whether this set was ever mass produced."

How about you? Have you ever seen any of the pieces of the Dining Room furniture set? Do you have any of the pieces? If so please tell me about it so that I know my search is not in vain. Thanks!


  1. Thanks for the precious places info. I've been looking for the dining room for a while too and haven't found anything yet. Please post if you ever find any of it.

  2. I have to say that I bought every set for my daughter when they came out. The only set that I do not have in precious places is this dining room set. Never saw it on the market; because, if it was being sold, I bought it for her.

  3. Jessica - thanks for the info. I was only 8 years old when these sets came out, so my memory isn't that distinct. It's nice to hear from someone who collected them when they were still in stores.

  4. Have you seen the pictures of the dining room set on the back of the village map? At least the one map that I have has it on the back. I really wish I could find a set but unfortunately I think the only time I will ever see it is on paper. The hutch is super cute too!

  5. Sarah,

    Yes, I have seen the picture on the back of the Village Map. There is also a picture of the Dining Room on the back of the box I have for the Living Room furniture set. You can also see pieces of the dining room set on the Magic Key Mansion box. But you're right, all of the pictures in the world aren't the same as having the actual set.
