Special Edition - released February 13, 2014 Julie's Dance Set Item# F9442 $64
Julie can't wait for the school dance! She'll have true '70s style with this groovy outfit and accessories: A flower-print dress, featuring a stand collar and a macramé belt from her mom's Gladrags shop White patent knee-high boots A doll-sized ticket and poster for the dance A mirrored disco ball that really lights up and spins at the touch of a button to make the dance floor sparkle!
What a fun set! I know it's a bit pricey, but the disco ball is so cool! It is plastic and uses batteries (not included). The ball does rotate and light up. It shines all around the room like a real disco ball! It does "light up the dance floor" as in the description, but it probably could use some light shining down from the top to make more sparkles around the room; this you can do by shining a small flashlight from the top onto it.
You can see by my photos below, that the camera flash causes the same effect as the lights being turned on --- little reflections around the room!
The dress is double-knit...how accurate is that! It opens up in the back with velcro. The belt is actually macrame and measures 20 1/2" long in it's entirety. The patent leather go-go boots also have velcro up the back. Just putting them on Julie brought back the sweaty-feet smell that I remember when I took mine off many years ago! Ah, sweet memories of growing up in the 70's!
I forgot to take a photo of the poster and ticket, but they are thick card stock and pretty sturdy for a paper product.
I'm very glad I got this set and will give it a grade of B+, only because it seems like it could have included a hair accessory or bracelet for the price. I've paired it with Julie's meet accessories' necklace.
Although I feel the set is a bit pricey, it is a fun set. The spinning and flashing disco ball takes me back...LOL. The outfit is one of the cutest that AG has made for Julie with the boots, macramé belt and mini dress. The price C but the set A.
