Kirsten's hair ribbons come with an extra pair of bright blue (meet), cream (birthday), dusky blue (school), red (Christmas), flowered Swedish ribbon (winter). All accept the flowered Swedish ribbons are woven. The bright blue ribbons are longer than the ones that originally came with my Kirsten in 1987. The school ribbons are a slightly different color than the original school ribbons from 1987-8. They are duskier and a nicer match with her school shawl, I think.The ribbons are all tightly woven with fringes at the ends. The ends fray a bit but I haven't had any ribbons unravel in 20 years. The more recent ribbons seem to be more loosely woven than my original ones and I prefer the older, tighter ones. I think they look nicer and more authentic. The flowered ribbons are a classic Swedish pattern and are just a regular cotton ribbon. The pattern on my pair from this set is different from the original pair that came with her winter outfit. The pair from this set are trimmed in white and the originals in red.
Overall, this is a nice set to buy if you've bought Kirsten's dresses from ebay or made them yourself. If you already have all of her outfits, then don't bother buying this set of ribbons, unless Kirsten wants to share them so she and a friend can match.
