Kirsten's trunk is beautiful and very detailed. The painting on the trunk coordinates with the painting on her bed and nightstand. It has a real Scandinavian feel. The two carved hearts on each side make real sturdy handles.
The trunk is quite spacious and can hold the bed and the doll if it isn't filled too full. There are three dividers in the trunk, which help keep the contents more organized. The trunk has more storage space than, either of Felicity's, Samantha's, Molly's and possibly Kit's trunk(s).
The lid isn't attached to the trunk so it slides around sometimes. You have to be careful that it doesn't fall off when you lift it off a shelf or carry it.
The trunk also scratches quite easy. I have had mine for 17 or 18 years and I've had to touch it up a couple times. I've been able to get containers with paints to touch it up from American Girl/Pleasant Company. The paints aren't always a perfect match but are close enough.
I am not able to fit all of Kirsten's belonging in her trunk. Without putting her bed in the trunk I can fit everything except for her dishes and straw hats. I have everything in her collection, except her whistle with a red string.
