Peg Garden--Gauging Interest

I am making something for my own kids, and thought I'd see if people might be interested in this as a new product. I will admit, I got the idea from THIS magic cabin product.

Mine would/does include:
peat soil that expands with water.
grass seed
bean sprouts
forget me not seeds
alyssum seeds
a mushroom table/chair set (wood)
3 pegcorn people (wood)
my peg people accessories (wooden bowls, muffins, plates, vases, etc)
a clay flower pot base (NOT plastic)
a real gourd "house" (from my own garden)
rocks, shells, other items I've collected (NO Plastic!)

I feel like this would be higher quality than what is already on the market, but what do you think about this idea? What would you pay for something like that? I would probably have to charge for shipping as this would be heavier than most of my toys, would you feel jipped if you were buying the one item that didn't have free shipping?

Thanks Kaysie!! We are doing them as a project for my son's birthday, I think. That will be the REAL test!

That sounds adorable! Maybe build the shipping into the price of the item?

We love those. I have quite a few saved to my Pinterest but I called them fairy gardens. Depending on price we would be interested in at least 1.

Super cute! I'm not sure about price either. Sorry, I'm not much help there. Could you do other themes? Maybe like pirate island?

Oh, as far as shipping, I think it would he totally fair to charge for shipping. It seems like that might be a fairly heavy package.

I think it's a great idea, but I have no clue on pricing and shipping.
