This set contains a necklace, belt pouch and a flat basket, I got it as a gift along with Kaya for Christmas 2006. I didn't think I would like the set because you don't get as much as with older meet accessories, but I was pleasantly surprised with it. The triple strand necklace is red (long), blue (middle) and green (short) plastic porcupine quills that are shaded to look like the real thing, alternating with white beads, it fastens with an easy to use lobster clasp that stays securely fastened. The belt pouch is a little woven bag with a painted design and trim, a loop fastener and loops to attach it to her belt, all made of the same material as her meet dress. It doesn't hold a lot but then it wasn't meant to really, girls carried bits of food or small knives or tools in them. I usually keep two of Kaya's finger cakes and the magnetic berries from her Foods in it, I've also put her meet necklace in it. The bigger bag is a flat 'cornhusk' basket (originally made of bear grass or hemp, later of corn husks and that name is used now) with handles, again made out of her meet dress material and again the design looks painted, but it is pretty. Girls used this sort of basket to gather roots, but not berries, those it would crush. I saw some that were very similar to it in museum collections. A-
When Purchased: I purchased Kaya's Meet Accessories directly from AG in 2006.
Description: With Kaya's Meet Accessories you get a bag, belt pouch and a necklace. The bag and belt pouch are both woven with painted-on designs and both have leather accents. The 3 strand necklace is made of colorful beads and secures with a metal clasp.
Durability: All of Kaya's Meet Accessories seem very durable.
Playability: I think little girls always enjoy having little bags to store their doll items. This accessory set provides 2 plus a cute necklace.
Value for the money: Although on the pricy side, Kaya's Meet Accessories add to her Meet Outfit (and other outfits) nicely.
I'm really not thrilled wit this set. I paid 19 dollars for it with free shipping so it might not be worth it for me to even send it back. The necklace feels cheap and the other two pieces seem like something I could pick up at the dollar store.

The necklace is the only worthwhile piece in the set. The bag and satchel are gross quality with poor printing. Luckily I obtained this set as a lot with the doll otherwise I'd be really disappointed at retail price.

Kaya's accessories are authentic-looking but there's not all that much to them. The necklace is my favorite part. The bag is just like the ones shown in many photos of women Nez Perce from the era and later.
