I found my Addy in a Goodwill today and she was missing her drawers and stockings; however, her dress and boots were in excellent condition (I cannot say the same for her hair . Her dress is made of super-soft pink cotton with the white stripes woven in. It has velcro at the sleeve ends (I was surprised at that, because this dress has no cuffs). Mine has a label that says "Made in China for Pleasant Company, 1993". The dress is excellent quality. However, as a living historian, I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that they put buttons up the front of her dress. Girls didn't wear front-fastening dresses until they reached the later teen years, because front-fastenings were a sign of adult clothing. So the historical inaccuracy docks this dress to an A-.
The boots are wonderful. They're made of what feels like real leather, with thin soles and soft shoestrings. The ones that came with mine look brand-new, even after all these years. A+
