I think this dress looks great on the darker skinned dolls also. The color is really pretty, and the material is nice. Not that crazy about the shoes because of the shiny almost plastic look, but the rest of the outfit is fine. A- because of shoes.

We happened upon our JLY8 by mistake. I bought a TLC Felicity from another board member and sent her off to DH for a head replacement. She had had some butchered bangs cut into her wig so the DH just assumed she was 8, replaced her with an 8 head and shipped her home. They were great, looked into it, acknowledged the mistake, and offered to fix her, but both DD and I loved her as an 8. She's still in the DH box awaiting the perfect time to be gifted into DD's collection. I figured we can always find another Felicity if needed...

She is my Clementine, and my first AG doll. I've never bonded with her and can't stick a story to her. She is the doll that gets the most attention, however with those striking green eyes. I tend to dress her in greens to accentuate them. She's an older doll who came in the red vinyl jumper meet outfit and is my heftiest and palest, distinctly different from newer classic mold dolls. She's claimed Addy's Christmas dress for this holiday season and will look stunning in it; last year she took MG's special dress.
McKenna is wearing the whole purple dress outfit now and I must say the jacket makes the dress. Lindsey has the pet show dress on and is eying the jacket as well. The nutcracker, well it is plastic and one could probably get a whole box of Christmas tree decorations that looked like nutcrackers.

I just got Caroline yesterday! Here are some pictures:
Hair: Caroline's hair is gorgeous! The curls are so perfect and bouncy. It had a lot of fly-aways once I took it out of the hairnet, but that can likely be fixed by spritzing a little water. Caroline is my first curly haired doll, and it's a little scary, but its prettiness makes up for that. I give it an A.
Face: Caroline has the prettiest eyes I've ever seen. They're decal (which I prefer), are are a pretty, pastel aquamarine. He skin is very fair and rosy, and she has the same nice, pink color to her lips that my #38 does. She has feathered eyebrows rather than line, which is nice and more realistic. I give it an A+.
Overall, I give this doll an A - A+. She has an A for now, while I learn how to take care of her hair, but once I get the hang of it, she's definitely worth of an A+! I highly recommend her for those who know how to handle curly hair.

I have these pictures from over the summer, when I swapped MG and McKenna's outfits. I think they look very similar, but the biggest difference for me is the hair. In this photo I pinned back MG's curls and tried to copy McKenna's hairstyle.

I bought the skirt, sweater and ribbons from a board member. I absolutely *love* this outfit! It might be my very favorite Molly outfit. Really, I can't say enough good things about it. The sweater is darling and fits well. It's neither bulky nor flimsy. Our skirt fits well on our Mattel Molly. The skirt is a great match for the sweater--and they are both great mix-and-match pieces. I had the skirt with Molly's red Halloween sweater and the sweater with Molly's red skating skirt. It would be cute with khakis and the skirt would work with Nicki's meet leo and Em's cardi...
While I don't find it very Christmasy, both Molly and Kit have worn it this fall. I think Emily will enjoy wearing it, too.

I finally got this outfit and wish I had done so sooner. I think it is more an Emily outfit than Molly, however. It's a perfect holiday sweater that can be dressed up or down, and is particularly striking on the teal (MG) and hazel and green eyed girls. I think collar or dickey would make it more formal looking. A bit of scalloped would do just fine.

I've resisted buying this dress because the white overlay was a bit much for my taste, but now that I have it in hand, I really like it. It's a very pretty dress. I'm glad this review section is here because it let me know that the wrinkles are normal for this fabric, but a minute or two with the steamer took care of that. I'm sorry I did not get this sooner. I think the red heads, brunettes as well as the raven haired girls are going to look striking in this. That the hair band would not show up as well for the dark haired girls makes me wish it were red or green instead of black. But it goes well with the dress. The tights are nothing special.
The dress is an A in my opinion. I would say it needs dressy shoes, but with all the Ruthie shoes that go on sale on Cybermondays and Last Chance Sales, there's plenty of opportunity to pick up a pair for a reasonable price.

I am shocked that this fairly fragile set survived my childhood as well as it did... and glad, too, because I think it's one of my favorites of Kirsten's accessory sets. Either my set (from somewhere in the early to mid 90s) is newer than the two pictured above or I did some damage to the flag as a kid that I don't remember, because my flag doesn't have a plastic ornament at the top of the wooden pole and the fabric of the flag is just glued to the side of the dowel.
The honey pots and handbill are my favorite pieces, but the whistle (which I unfortunately didn't get a picture of - I think it's stored with my Kirsten's summer dress rather than with this set) is adorable too. A from me!

Well, I'll start off by saying that when I first saw the AG stock photos, I thought she was particularly blah, drab, and boring. I didn't have any inkling to buy her, and I thought she was ugly in just about all the photos on americangirl.com. But then I went to AGP Seattle and couldn't believe my eyes. Could it be the same girl? She's one of the prettiest, most angelic dolls I have ever seen. I went through several to pick out my perfect Cozi, and couldn't be happier. I find myself staring at her for minutes at a time because she's so beautiful. I'm in the process of developing a personality for her, because she won't (for the most part) be canon. I don't find regency dresses attractive. Cozi has luscious curls that aren't as hard to maintain as I originally thought. They're lovely, thick, and perfect. I do love her meet dress, which is weird because at first I thought it was quite ugly. But inperson it looked different. Her socks are a bit thick, and I would have preferred shoes with maybe a little bow or something, but over all I love her outfit.
I wish AG's photos could do her justice. I can't really describe it, but when you put her with any other doll, she outshines them. Most assuredly an A+

My daughter bought Inkpot, the kittie is super adorable, sweet looking and nice quality . The cat looked great, with Caroline dressed in the new Halloween outfit my daughter bought, along with Inkpot. I give Inkpot an A.

My friend like to show Caroline going for picnics with her mini dolls, which I think is adorable! I will be buying this set as soon as I find the money. Everything is really good quality and I absoloutly adore the little map, I keep stroking it, because I'm weird like that

Here are pictures of the Bitty Twins Travel Set with an 18" doll.
The set is very cute, great quality, and so much like "real people" ones, especially the suitcase. I think the size and style works for the bigger dolls. The colors and design are a younger style than the backpacks made for the 18" dolls. The main colors are red and navy blue, instead of purple, light blue, pink, tan, and the other colors that have been used in the past for the MyAG backpacks. Instead of stars for a design, these have round circles of different colors, and the hearts that are used on other BT items are embroidered on both the suitcase and backpack.
The suitcase unzips three sides so that the lid folds back and opens up completely. The zipper has two pulls rather than just one pull. This makes it easier to open because the zipper doesn't have to be pulled all the way around the three sides. Each pull can open up part of it. I hope this makes sense. The suitcase can be wheeled and can also stand up. It has a loop on one of the sides, but I have no clue what it is for. It's too small to go over the doll's hand.
The backpack zipper has one pull and opens at the top. It also has a handle that fits over the four fingers of the 18" doll so it can be held.
There is a pocket on the outside of both of them.
They're both nylon, but the sides and lid of the suitcase are hard. The backpack fits inside the suitcase for storage when they are not being used. That will help me to keep them together in one place.
