I’ve wanted a wheelbarrow for my mini stable for years. Years and years and years. I’ve always thought that Breyer’s was more Classic scaled than Traditional, and while Enterprise Props has a nice one it wasn’t quite what I was looking for.
Last week I stumbled across this accessory set by the “Our Generation” doll line. It’s a cute gardening set for 18″ dolls with a… really out of scale wheelbarrow?
I lucked out and found an eBay seller who was just selling the wheelbarrow. It arrived a few days ago.
I think it works?
I couldn’t leave it pink, so I masked off the wheel and handles…
… and gave it a new paint job.
Now I finally have a 1:9ish scale wheelbarrow.
1:9 is such an odd scale so it’s always exciting to find pieces that work with it. For me anyway, but I’m just weird like that.

Looks so much better after the paint job!
You have such a good eye. Did what kind of paint did you use to get such a even finish
Thanks! It’s one of Krylon’s “Short Cuts” spray paints. The silver is alcohol ink. I’m not sure if it was the best choice as far as paint goes, but so far so good?
I think it works great! 18 inch doll stuff is always way to small.
Great job, it looks amazing!
I just stumbled across your blog whilst doing my own frustrating search for a 1:9 scale wheelbarrow. It’s nice to know there is one out there, so I’ll keep looking Great paint job!
