Kayak and Paddle: A+ This is so much fun. I like playing with the kayak. . .the girls fight over who gets to take the kayak out next.
Some were disappointed that this item is inflatable. I don't know how they would've done it any other way - I guess it could've been a canoe and a hard side. The plastic is very think, more like a vinyl. It seems durable to me.
The paddle is adorable - it's a rain stick, too and makes noise when you flip it.
It also comes with an awesome AG lifejacket. So cute!! Perfect for playing titanic ;-).
This set is well made and worth the money if you plan to play with it.
Swimsuit and Kayak Outfit. A - This is one awesome outfit. An all time favorite. I love that the swimsuit/Tankini is sporty. The whole set mixes and matches really well - the pink shorts go with so many other tops. You could actually dress two dolls with this one outfit; have one wear the swimsuit and one wear the shorts and the kayak long sleeve shirt.
The fabric on the long sleeve shirt will snag on velcro, so be careful with it. It hasn't happened to me, but others report this, and it certainly is that sporty, strectchy, spandex material than could snag/pill. This reduces the play value (like Mari's fish net tights) and is the main reason for the A -.
The little swim shoes are very nice; They might double as tennis shoes for some other outfits.
It also comes with sunglassed (go well with Jess' meet outfit) and a cute sunscreen tube necklace.
