Wow, got to be first reviewer for this, too! I'll just say that I really dislike how Coconut is the theme of this party, because if you don't have or like Coconut you're stuck with little Westie decorations all over everything. Also, it cuts down on versatility.
The balloons - while a nice idea in concept, the balloons are made of plastic and wire and are kind of hard for the doll to hold. The handle is made of thick twisted wire with a loop to slip over the doll's hand. The balloons to this set are pink and blue with "Happy Birthday" logos, and a silver one with Coconut. I do like the color choices and all the curling ribbon! B-
The tiara - another good concept but doesn't exactly work. The tiara is made of plastic and is not wide enough to fit on the doll's head! We have a doll from this same period but the tiara still sits strangely on top, leaving a gap between the crown and the head. As far as looks go, it is made of pearlized white plastic and silvery tinsel, with a holographic "Happy Birthday" sticker on top. B-
The gift bag - a cute idea, made of sparkly plastic-coated paper. It actually holds a lot, including all the favors if you'd like to use it as a favor sack. The strap is pearlized pink curling ribbon, and the bag is edged with shiny trim. A+
The favors - these look like real favors you'd get at a birthday party! The stickers are made of blue and pink candies and are really removable. The sketch pad are just like things my sister and I actually had, and I'm glad it came with the little plastic stick even though it's no big deal. The blowout is the best part. It really works! Or at least it did, until the paper got a rip in it. A The cake and platter - Coconut appears again, here he is in tiny plastic "candy" form on top of the cake. The cake looks pretty realistic with pink and lavender glazing, with the aforementioned candy Coconut and little silk flowers decorating the top. Even the glitter makes sense, I had sugar glitter on all my cakes at this time. The platter is plain pink, scalloped plastic, with a paper doily lining it. The paper doily is very fragile and crumples easily but looks nice when it is intact. A-
