Sleep & Snack Pet Bed Item# F5211 Give her favorite pet a cozy place to dream—and dine! Set includes: A comfy platform bed that's raised on silver-tone legs, with a soft vine-print mattress that's perfect for snoozing. A food and water bowl to keep her pet happy and well fed. Pet name stickers to personalize the bowl. $26
The Bed is two pieces - a plastic platform & a pillow.
My only complaint about the bed is the pillow obviously slides around a lot which can sometimes get a bit annoying.
The food dish is pretty standard. I like how there's actually pretend food in one side, unlike past sets.
I haven't used any of the stickers, but I think they're great for kids!
So cute!! Love the unique style! Very different from what they've done before. Also great because it will work for any of the pets! Some are too small for the bigger pets like Pepper & Chocolate Chip. Definitely one of my favorite AG pet beds. Meatloaf has claimed the one here.

Coconut will show off her Valentine spirit with a head band of hearts! Put on her locket necklace, then send her out to deliver a special valentine. Her necklace doubles as a bracelet for you. The locket has a picture of Coconut inside! Also includes stickers. $10
The Valentine is magnetic and is very easy to get Coconut to hold, since it's light.
The collar/bracelet was always my favorite piece as a child! I LOVED the little picture of Coconut!
One of my favorite Coconut sets as a child! Even after years of play, I've never had any trouble with the headband piece breaking.
Santa has a brand-new helper! Coconut's dressed for the part in a Santa hat and jingle-bell collar. Her sleigh holds a shiny package and a snowman toy. Comes with a gel-filled snow globe sticker for you! $18
Very cute! Made out of a foam kind of material. Pretty easy for my Coconut to hold.
Gift Box: A
Also very cute! I love the pom pom on top! The toy fits in well.
Santa Hat: A
Has an elastic band to keep it on, so it fits well & is easy to get on & off.
Adorable! Collar has Velcro, so it's very easy to get on & off!
Coconut makes an adorable Cupid in her shimmery pink wings with detachable feathers. She has a glittery toy bone, and her tiara doubles as a pretty silver collar. Includes Valentine’s Day stickers for you. $12
The wings actually come apart into two pieces.
They clip together and then the elastics go over Coconut's legs to hold them in place.
They were a bit hard for me to get on as a child.
Bone toy: A-
A bit heavy and hard to get Coconut to hold, but still very cute!
I really liked this set as a child and still do today!

This sweet puppy is a service dog-in-training! He has soft fur, a solid body, and a collar. When it's training time, your girl can slip on his service vest—it has a handle My American Girl® dolls can hold. Reward this special helper with faux treats for all of his good work! $34
I really purchased the Service Dog Set just to get Chocolate Chip, but I do like the Service Dog pieces!
2 Velcro strips make it easy to get on and off!
It also fits Pepper:
Cute, but rather boring as they don't open or anything.
I don't have much to add. #61 is a beautiful doll, mine came with a thinnish wig that I am considering exchanging. Her hair is very similar in color to my 93-94 Felicity. Felicity's has faded a little pinkish, but mostly ok. Comparison pic, (bodyless)Felicity on left, #61 on right: www.flickr.com/photos/81528134@N07/14551477362/in/set-72157645455502842 Felicity's head is in the shadow, but the ponytails are pretty accurate.
Edit: I did get an exchange, and her wig is much better. I wouldn't call it "nice and thick" like others have, but it is a nice wig and I would call it about average thickness.

Sorry that I don't have pictures, but I wanted to share that this is a great piece of furniture - very versatile. It's wood and this particular pink color will coordinate well with many existing MyAG furniture pieces. It is a good size and could easily be a small chest of drawers or credenza. It has three nice size drawers for storage. I love the orange vase and flowers that come with it. The flowers appear to be Gerber daisies in pink, red, yellow and orange. The clock is the same as the one that came with McKenna's loftbed set only yellow so nothing new about it. The three postcards are cute but again, similar to those in other sets. All in all, I give the set an A- because they could have come up with a different clock or perhaps another phone, or small television.
Starry Clip Hangers Item# F5327 Your girl can organize her doll's wardrobe with these three handy hangers. Each one has a bottom clip to secure hard-to-hang skirts and pants, plus contours to keep tops and dresses from slipping. $8
Pros: Very easy to use. Cons: Take up WAY too much room. Unless you have unlimited hanging space, skip these. I thought they would be really cool, but it's so much easier to just put pants and skirts either in a separate bin or drawer or through the little slit in the regular hangers.
Overall: C Would have been lower, but I can't deny that they are easy to use if that's what you're going for.
Charm-Keeper Necklace for Dolls Item# F8676 Your girl can express her My American Girl® doll's unique personality! This necklace features a metal pendant adorned with a translucent star and American Girl® logo tag that hang on an adjustable pink cord. She can simply slide each charm onto the pendant to capture her doll's one-of-a-kind character! $8
I was really excited to get my charm keeper necklace in a craigslist lot! I had been accruing lots of those little charms but, having no MyAG doll, had no place to put them! I think it's awesome that they started selling the necklace by itself!
The necklace is made up of a pink cord and a silver circle with a translucent star hanging in the middle.
The silver circle opens easily to put charms on.
Here's a full necklace. I can fit about 20 charms on one.
The pink cord is also adjustable by pulling on the two knots at the top.
Overall: A- I'm glad I have one to put all of my charms on! I'm not a huge fan of the whole charm concept itself, but the necklace is cool to put them on. Unfortunately, I can't fit all of my charms on a single one even though I don't even have any duplicates. It kind of bugs me. I wish they'd made something all of the charms would fit on. But I guess that's my collector mentality - wanting to collect one of each.
Spa Chair Item# F5355 She can treat her doll to a spa day! Just like the real thing, this padded spa chair tips back so she can "wash" her doll's hair with the pull-out sprayer, or give her a pedicure in the foot bath. The faucet and footbath make bubbly water sounds! Set also includes:
A faux bottle of shampoo A bottle of pretend spa salts Make-believe nail polish bottles An embroidered bath towel Three sheets of nail stickers A mini magazine for her doll to read while she enjoys salon treatments
This was purchased for my 8 y.o. daughter in December of 2013. Unfortunately she's already misplaced a few of the accessories, but you can see how this item has held up after 6 months of real-girl play.
The chair is made of nice heavy weight, durable plastic and has a substantial feel to it. It has a non-slip bottom as well so it stays in place during play. The seat is topped with padded vinyl.
The seat tips forward for a soak in the foot bath or backward for a hair wash. The velcro strap secures the doll into the seat, otherwise she'd slip down with the chair is in the forward position. I am using a plastic band to secure the spray nozzle in Cécile's hand.
The foot bath has non-working "buttons". The silver lever moves back and forth, but doesn't appear to do anything else. AG's description says that the foot bath makes bubbly sounds, but the button for the bubbly sounds is actually on the chair (turquoise button pictured under the left arm rest) and the sound emanates from underneath the sink portion of the chair. They are very nice bubbly sounds though! The foot bath also has a drain with real holes in the bottom, so it would be impossible to actually fill with water, which is probably a very good thing.
The sink portion features a sprayer that pulls out on red plastic tubing. The sink nozzle turns and produce a running water sound effect. The drain pictured is also a 'real' drain and would prevent the sink from actually holding water.
As I mentioned, my daughter has misplaced some of the accessories (the towel, a bottle of nail polish, and the stickers), but the ones she found are very nice quality and well made. None of the tops open. The Doll Style magazine has 8 pages including the front and back cover and has cute "articles" and "ads" that you can read if you have a magnifying glass or young eyes.
The price is pretty steep at $110 but it is a quality piece. I would say this has moderate play value for a child, particularly if your child is interested in pretend salon.
Overall, I would rate this item B+, with the biggest "con" that it is slightly overpriced. If it was $85, I'd give it a solid A.
I couldn't resist this set! It is so very colorful, and well made, too. It reminded me a lot of last year's Easy Breezy outfit, which I also love, but I feel there is even more value to this outfit for what you pay ($28 retail as of June 2014). I love the flow-y ruffles on the lovely yellow shirt, and also appreciate that the design at the neckline is embroidered and incorporates little faceted plastic turquoise "stones" that are sewn into the pattern. The shorts have a great, colorful print, and open at the fly with velcro. There are two side pockets. The melon orange flip flops are my favorite, with foam bottoms and textured straps that look like miniatures of the real things. Three round yellow beads embellish each strap, and they are sewed to the plastic with heavy duty thread, so they're not going to come off easily. There is an elastic band that goes across the doll's foot to hold each flip flop on, and they stay on very well (rough play will cause them to fall off eventually, thought.)
Bottom Line: A+. This is a great modern outfit, and makes me smile every time I see Cat wearing it this summer. I only wish that maybe they could have brought the price up to $34 and thrown in the matching accessories that currently sell separately for $24; almost the same price as the outfit itself. I love the hat and bag, but can't bring myself to go for it all. The Sunny Isle definitely can stand well on it's own.
School Backpack Set Item# F5289 This smart set has everything My American Girl® dolls need for back-to-school. It includes: A backpack that features two side pouches, a front zippered pocket, and a screen-printed American Girl logo A colorful notebook with lined pages for taking notes A mini math textbook so she can study up Three pretend mechanical pencils A faux water bottle with flower graphics $28
Backpack: C The colors weren't horrible, but the quality was rough.
Notebook: A Very cute little notebook! I love the colors & that the paper inside is really lined!
Mini Math Textbook: A This little textbook caused quite an uproar from anti-common core crowds and ultimately caused the early retirement of the set. I personally think the cover is cute and I love that there are actual textbook pages inside!
Mechanical Pencils: A So cute! Love the bright, happy colors!
Water Bottle: A Again, very cute and I love the bright colors!
Overall: B+ The set has some adorable pieces but just missed the mark. The backpack was sub-par quality, and the controversy over the textbook sunk it.

Dreamy Bedding Item# W0573 Inspire sweet dreams with this bright bedding! It's made to match the Dreamy Daybed, featuring two cotton sheets for the bed and trundle, two printed bed pillows, a floral throw pillow, and a reversible comforter with a blooming butterfly design on one side and multicolored stripes on the other. $34
LOVE these colors!!! Great bedding! It looks wonderful in Kanani's room! My only complaint would be that it's not as soft as I'd like. It's just rather stiff. I think washing it may help, but I haven't gotten around to that yet.
Cadet Cap for Dolls Item# F5131 American Girl® dolls can add a pop of color to any outfit with this cap, featuring an embroidered American Girl® logo, a curved brim, and tab details on the sides. Cotton. Imported. Berry. One size. $8
Cute item and fits very well. It's easy to get on & it stays on pretty well. My dolls don't end up wearing it very much, but when they do, it looks great!
Purple Espadrilles Item# F5323 My American Girl® dolls will be all set for sunny days with these sandals! They feature woven soles and bows at the toes. $14
Just like all other AG shoes, these are cute but pricey. I do think they're a bit more worth it than others, just because they are a more intricate style. I love the espadrille look & the purple color. One shoe does have one of the annoying long tags, but luckily it stays pretty flat so it's not a huge issue.
My biggest problem with these shoes is getting them on. I alway end up having to contort my doll to get them to slip over her heel. Maybe I'm just challenged, but I definitely wouldn't give them to a young child. Frustration would be swift I think.
Polka-Dot Flats Item# F5319 These slip-on shoes add a sweet touch to any outfit. They're printed with pale pink dots, and feature ribbon-bow accents at the heels. $14
Honestly, I would not have purchased these if not for the adorable little bow on the side. Even then, they're pricey. They're pretty basic ballet flats. Easy on & off. Cute with a lot of the store exclusive pieces.
Purple Tank & Brief Set for Dolls Item# G1415 American Girl dolls can stay cool in this stretchy purple tank with an embroidered graphic at the chest. Matching briefs have a satin bow and elastic trim for easy wear. $10
I inherited these from a younger cousin when she was done with her AG dolls. I'm not a fan at all and these are currently in my To Sell pile. The set didn't hold up well to play at all. There is no velcro in the tank, so it has to go over the doll's head which stretches out the fabric. The purple color is nice, but I feel like it would show under a lot of shirts. I just don't see the need for the set at all really.
