2-in-1 Soccer Outfit for Dolls (2006 - to present)
This set includes: * White “home” jersey * Teal “away” jersey * Nylon shorts * Headband (Light Blue) * Two ponytail holders (Navy Blue) * Socks * Cleats * Shin guards * Soccer ball * Ball bag * The book, "The Venus, Tara, and the Big Game"
The set is $34 from AG. I got mine on ebay for $14 and with shipping the cost was about $20.
The uniforms are made of nylon and feel more like the material soccer uniforms are made of today. I really like that they included a home and away jersey with this set.
The bag has a clip in front that you can unclasp to put the ball in. I found it somewhat hard to open, but without anything in the bag you can just slip the ball in without opening the clip. The thing I found annoying was that the bag just fits the shoes and the ball. You almost have to smash the shoes in so the bag will close. However, most of the time the doll would probably have the shoes on so I don't think it is that big of an issue. The outfit is definitely one that a girl could play with and is durable. The only issue I can think of with durability is the clip that I had a hard time opening could break. The book that comes with the outfit is enjoyable.
Overall, I give the outfit an A. The price of $34 seems a bit high to me as the last ones were only $24, but I guess the price is higher because of the extra shirt and the book.
I thought I would add some pictures of this outfit. It is well made, has lots of parts, and looks cute on. I like the home/away jersey idea, just like a real kid. The ball bag is also cute, you can stash both ball and shoes inside, but it is a tight fit. Giving this outfit an A for well made, pretty color, and realism.
