The blueish one; we got one last May. My daughter loves it (she is six), but I am not impressed. It is hard to get the doll in and out of it, and you can't use a lot of the pockets when there is a doll in it. The main compartment is not deep - doesn't hold a lot.
On the plus side, it is pretty solidly made.
I guess I would just say, if you've got a doll in it, don't plan on using it to carry much else. If you want to use it for school, it is fine for a younger child.
Hope that explains it. We did not get the suitcase, just the backpack.

I love the bluish backpack! LOL!! I found a suitcase/backpack set with an extra backpack inside at a kids' resale shop last year. DD#2 and I each used a backpack to take a doll to AGPlaceNY a few weeks ago. There was plenty of room in the main compartment for a day-trip's worth of stuff. It's definitely a "take a doll to Grandma's" kind of backpack, not a school one, but it is sturdy and I love the pearly finish on it. Stylish, pretty and functional.
I have one, and it can fit two dolls (one in the bag, one in the front part thing). It's really a pretty colour, and I used it almost every day after I got my first AG (for a couple of weeks, maybe a month), and I use it every once in a while, and it still looks new.

We were not overly impressed with the quality of this backpack. However, it has held up pretty well despite feeling a little "cheap." DD takes it to her Grandma's every time she spends the night and her JLY rides along! She also recently started taking it to a friend's house when they get together so her doll can join the fun there as well. Looks really cute on! I give it an A for function and B for craftmanship....
