The Easter dress is cotton, with a sweet bunny, duck and flower print. There's two plastic pearly buttons underneath a white collar. The collar on the dress is the same material as the bonnet, which is a soft, kind of odd material. There is a satin baby blue ribbon on the bonnet that velcroes to the other side of the hat, under bitty's chin. There are various little flowers on the ribbon, too. The socks are white, scalloped-edged socks that are identical to those sold with some of Bitty's other sets. The shoes are plastic, and of the same mold typical of early bitty booties.
The book with this set is called "Bitty Bear Colors Eggs", and is identical to that which is sold with the later, purple dress Easter set. The strange thing is that this set came out before the purple spring dress did, but the book cover pictures Bitty Bear wearing the purple dress. Anyways, it is a paint-with-water book. Remember those? You dip your paintbrush in water and colors magically blend together on the page. All of the pictures are of different egg designs.
Bitty bear gets the CUTEST bunny ears and bow tie, both elastic, and stay in place nicely.
The toy is a plastic basket with an attached duck. When you push it down it makes a squeaky noise. Very baby appropriate.
Overall: This is my favorite of all bitty baby's Easter outfits, though the plastic shoes leave much to be desired. The book was a touch of nostalgia, and most of all I find the outfit to be very appropriate for a baby's first Easter. It's soft and sweet and I absolutely adore the flowers on the bonnet. For some reason, though, I can't help but feel there's something lacking in the dress. I feel like there should be thicker material in the skirt part, or some sort of bloomer underneath.
