Country Nurse Set

I recently also acquired the Country Nurse Set, and what a delightful set. I mainly ordered it to stock my small JP clinic and also to get Myriam Chantilly a work outfit as she is the Sugarbush Valley nurse.

The boxed set.

Neatly and securely packed, with a leaflet containing the patient charts and cold medicine. These can easily be pressed out. The other packet contains the slippers, bandages and a pink blanket.

A close up of the nurse and the wheelchair. Personally I would have preferred a blue/green one, like the one that came with this set.

Oliver agreed to help out his aunt to show off the wheelchair. The child figures fits perfectly.

However, an adult figure has a much more snug fit, and one needs much more patience to get them seated.

The set also includes a trolley, though plastic, it is quite sturdy, with drawers that can actually open and close.

The little pills and ointments that came with the set is adorable and so is the "glass" jars. Note that the two larger ones has removable lids. (Hannah insisted to show that babies can also ride in the wheelchair).

Obviously the set includes crutches, a cast and a hot water bottle.

Just look at all this little accessories. There is actually a syringe and thermometer too!

Lids on, cold medicine box of pills folded and patient cards pressed out.

Complete set. Note that Oliver is wearing a slipper and the cast, which is really easy to put on.

All and all a very cute set at a reasonable price, especially because it includes a figure too.

After I looked at all the accessories I took a closer look at the mother. It was obvious that she was a Periwinkle family member, or was she. On closer inspection, there was a big difference. The Nurse was much lighter in colour and her flocking was unbelievably soft. The Periwinkle mother (Kate) was also a bit shorter. To me they are thus not from the same family and now Im wondering if the Nurse might be, what they call a Buttermilk Rabbit Family member? Can anyone help to confirm this. Or is it just a Milk Rabbit family?

In these pictures the differences is more evident.
Front.

Side.

Back (notice that the Nurse's tail is a very soft/light pink, almost like her the inside of her ears, while Kate's tail is the same colour as the rest of her body)

Any comments or extra info on this set will be much appreciated.

  2. I have this set and I was amazed too at the soft flocking. My dentist rabbit is similar to the nurse rabbit and I have the Milk Rabbit Family from Japan too but I didn't unbox them yet. https://www.flickr.com/photos/95398109@N02/8721398959/in/set-72157633501714976 I do wonder if they are the same. I'll go take a closer look when I get home!

  3. Wow wow - this set is so beautiful and detailed! I like the colouring of the nurse slightly more than the Periwinkles - thanks for comparing them though as I was going to buy this set as a mother for my periwinkle children but have decided differently now! As for being in a different family, perhaps the nurse was Kate Periwinkle's sister-in-law - and Kate's brother works in the Big City? Just an idea :)

    1. Glad I could help. I still like the "old" Periwinkles, but these new one are just so "soft" looking. I decided to call her Jane and think she will be Alex's sister.

    4. I recently got an eBay bundle which had most of the accessories for my'Arty fairy' craft shop - it came with a lovely dress once worn by the otter mother, so very pleased about that. I'm sure that you'll find the perfect dress soon!

  5. It's such a cute set! Congratulations :). I love the costume and the little medical instruments. It's really interesting how different the colours of the womens bodies are. I wonder why?
    Many greetings:)

    1. You will not regret it! There is so many stuff in there that you can actually break the set up and use the little bottles somewhere else, and there will still be enough supplies to stock the clinic.
