Mighty World Sets
The Mighty World sets from International Playthings have some great accessories that can be used in 1:12 miniature modern designs. Although I'm sure someone somewhere is using the accessories in the Construction series to outfit a miniature modern garage setting, I prefer the Town Life series.
I’m quite partial to the fruits and vegetables available in the Farmer’s Market set. They are well made and very close in quality to those you can find in Japanese candy toys. I’m also fond of the dishes available in the Dinner Time and Baking Time sets. The silver pots and pans look like a pro-chef series when in a 1:12 modern setting. The various Barbecue sets have some decent looking steaks and condiments. The Dessert Cafe has desserts and dishes that can be used, as well as a good looking coffee/espresso maker. As most know, it’s the accessories in your miniature design that make it come alive.
The Mighty World sets generally cost between $4 - $50.
