We love the Berry Wheelchair! My dd used her Christmas money to buy it, so I was really hoping she'd love it. I warned her that the doll's feet would probably stick straight out, but that's not the case at all! It is designed so that the legs angle down just enough for the feet to rest where they should.
The fabric is sturdy, sporting a very handy pocket. The plastic parts appear sturdy as well. The hand brakes move back and forth, but don't actually prevent the wheels from turning when they're in braking position. The wheels have a metal rim for the doll to push, and an authentic looking tread. Saige has sustained quite a few injuries using her new roller skates, so we're all pleased that she can ride in such style while she needs to. We give the Berry Wheelchair an A+.

I ordered these for DD7 and DD6. They are some of the nicest and most comfortable PJs we've ever bought from AG. In addition, they are extremely stylish. We've had them for three days now and the girls won't wear any other pajamas. That's how I know they're a hit.
The fabric is soft and comfortable with a bit of shimmer to the pants. It's very subtle. The glittery detailing on the top is part of the fabric and not sewn on - thus no itching. I love the wider waist band. It seems of good quality. The pants aren't slipping down or leaving marks on their skin.
My girls are extremely tall, like 99th percentile tall and of medium build, so I ordered larger sizes for them. My second grader is wearing the large (she weighs 80 lbs) and my kindergarten the medium (she weighs 65 lbs). From past experience it seems like AG pjs tend to run small. These sizes give them room to grow. The fit is loose but they aren't swimming in the pants or tops
I love the length of the pants on them and the wider legs. It's perfect as loungewear. If they wore their pajamas out into the yard it would be perfectly acceptable. They look adorable and oh so stylish.
So $10 with a $50 purchase. Includes fleece headband and knit poncho.
God, the headband is ugly. The poncho is cuter than I thought. Looks much better on the doll. Velcro all the way up the back; the no-snag kind. Headband is stretchy band covered with fleece. Fits fine.
Everything is pretty well made, I store all Saige's jewelry in her purse. The gold dangles sometimes twist around, but easily fixable to twist back into place. The bracelet is hell to get on. I don't like these clasps they use.
Love Saige. Not a lot to say. She's beautiful and my first GOTY doll. The only doll I have with pierced ears. Her hair color is near exact to mine! She has a cute head tilt, but does not seem to have even length legs. She can balance fine, but not with both feet flat on a level surface. Her clothes are cute, decent meet outfit. Haven't lost the ring. I prefer to keep it on her pinkie, then it doesn't fall off since you can wedge it up her finger more. The boots are to die for. Want some for me. Her earrings are cute.
A+ I purchased a TLC Pleasant Company Felicity with artist mark and no body tag that I restrung and attached a detached arm. Her hair was all matted so I gave her a downy dunk. Her hair is still dry and has a large bald spot in the back where her wig cap is visible; however it's under the top layer of hair so it's not really visible unless you look for it. If I pull her hair back in her ponytail, no one would know it's there. Her hair is the prettiest copper color. I was surprised at how beautiful she is. She is my favorite doll now. Her green eyes are a softer green than the Mattel Felicity's. Her face is so soft and she has the prettiest brownish red eyelashes! I love her copper colored hair. I purchased a 1993 Pleasant Company rose garden meet dress and shift, meet socks and shoes for her. I really like how well made her meet dress is and love the design also. I wish I knew what year my Felicity was from it's thought to be mid 1990s.
We've just got this swimsuit outfit and it is gorgeous! The swimming costume is silky and stretchy, the towel is thick and colourful and is really soft to touch, and the sunglasses and the flip-flops are quite realistic.

Grade: A+. Bitty Baby's Fuzzy Hedgehog is a sweet little creature. The purple is a lovely shade of lavender and very soft and plush. The hedgehog is a good size for a child and does match the hedgehog in the Bitty Baby Has A Tea Party book. My daughter really enjoys this stuffed animal. The cost is a bit on the high end for a stuffed animal this size but the quality is good.
Me and my sister both got this the year Felicity and Elizabeth retired, and they are pretty, and comfy, the only flaw I can see is that after a few washes the fabric starts to pill. It's nice and roomy though.
My dolls: Felicity Merriman, Addy Walker, Samantha Parkington, Julie Albright, Rebecca Rubin, Emily Bennett, Kirsten Larson,Josefina Montoya, Saige Copeland, Lacey (#58), and Molly!!!
My sister's dolls: Molly Mcintire, Elizabeth Cole, Kirsten Larson, Zoe (#13), Felicity Merriman, Kaya , Marie-Grace Gardner, Cécile Rey, Caroline Abbott, Samantha Parkington ,Kit Kitteredge Nellie O'Malley
For some reason, this has always been one of my absolute favorite AG outfits.. Could be because I had the matching dress when I was younger. I feel it's a tad dated now, especially the shoes, butI still like it. Here's a picture of Saige wearing it:
I purchased this outfit on sale. I wouldn't have purchased it full price. It is a very pretty outfit, but the fabrics are thin and the doll can't sit down in the pants; they immediately slip over her rear.
I'm a bit late to the Chrissa party. I bought her (nude, so no review of the meet outfit) from Ebay in 2013 with the plan to customize her. From the beginning I had a love/hate relationship with her. First of all, I scratched her face when I removed her wig due to my own carelessness (I've managed to polish some of that away, but it's still there, although not terribly noticeable). Secondly, none of the customs I did really worked for her, although I must say she makes a great boy doll. In the end I put her original wig back and... I fell in love with her. Not my favorite doll in my collection, but definitely a beautiful doll, and somewhat unique compared to many other AG's. Her coloring is fantastic, and mine has a nice, thick wig that is still in good shape 5 years after she was GOTY.
If you can find a nice Chrissa on the secondary market, I'd recommend her. Especially since we've seen so many GOTYs that look more or less the same, Chrissa is actually kind of unique. I give the doll an A.
I disagree with other reviewers who say that Chrissa is not photogenic: I found that each time I wanted to sell her in the past year, I would see a gorgeous Chrissa photo and realize just how beautiful she is. Here's one that I took recently that I like.

"Your girl's My American Girl® doll will be oh-so-sweet in this confection of an outfit! It features:
-A dress with a glittery "love" graphic on the front, tiers of satin ruffles at the skirt, and a big printed bow tied at the back shoulders just for fun -A fancy bracelet -Pink sandals with bows at the toes -A "Strong" rectangle charm for the doll's charm-keeper necklace"
I got this outfit, at AGB-Boston (I actually got it with the intention of modifying it into a separate top and skirt).
The dress is a pretty light pink color. The top is made of knit t-shirt material. The graphic is nice and has a little bit of foil print and rhinestones on it. The skirt has two tiers of satin and one of a heart print. I do wish that more of the printed tier was seen. The back of the dress features a big bow in the heart print, near the top.
The sandals are pink with two little bows. The bracelet has pink sparkly plastic heart beads and closes with a clasp.
My overall grade would be an A- for the printed ruffle not being more visible. I also think the outfit looks better as separates although it's pretty as a dress, too. Overall though this is a cute set. I love the color and the graphic on the dress and I think the bracelet is simple and cute.
Love, love, love this outfit! Hands down, one of my favorites that AG has made! It was an impulse purchase at AGP DC in May 2013, and I'm so glad that I threw it in the bag! The dress is incredibly soft and looks amazing on every doll I've put it on! The flats are adorable and versatile, and the headband completes the look perfectly! Can't say enough good things about this outfit! A++
