Description: Boy Twins are ready to play in this comfy outfit: A plaid shirt with buttons that’s mock-layered over a gray long-sleeved tee, cuffed jeans with contrast stitching at the knee, a lime-green training diaper, and a pair of red shoes with elastic laces for easy wear. The Bitty Twins Learn to Share book that teaches girls how sharing can make playtime twice as fun.
As far as “meet” outfits go, this isn’t a bad one. The pieces are well made, have some mix-and-match potential, and seem to appeal to the target age group. The style (but not the colors) is definitely something that my preschool-aged son would wear.
Shirt: While the shirt is a little bright for my tastes, it’s fairly cute and well made. The top fits the Bitty Baby/Twins without any issues, but is a bit boxy on the 18” dolls.
The buttons are just for decoration and the shirt fastens with Velcro in the back. While I’d prefer real buttons, this arrangement makes it easier for little hands to dress/undress their dolls.
I do wish that that the grey long sleeved t-shirt and plaid over-shirt were two separate pieces. It would add a lot more mix-and-match potential. Bitty Twin boy would essentially have both a “summer” and “winter” outfit.
Jeans: Jeans are a staple in most little boys’ wardrobes. Therefore, it’s nice that a pair comes with the Bitty Twin boy. The jeans are relatively well made and fit the babies fairly well. However, the rise is a little low. They make quite cute Capri pants for the 18” dolls.
Training pants: The training pants are fairly uneventful. They’re thinner than I expected, but fit the Bitty Twin/Baby well. I haven’t tried them on the 18” dolls.
Shoes: The shoes aren’t the most realistic, but are fairly versatile and well made. I like that they have an actual sole. The shoes are also relatively easy for little hands to put on/off Bitty and the 18” dolls. I do wish that the outfit came with socks. It seems like most preschoolers wear socks with their tennis shoes.
Book: The book is a typical Bitty book; I doubt it’ll see much use.
