I bought this set for the quints, and they absolutely love it! The snowshoes are easy to get on and the dolls can stand in them well. I haven't tried them out in the snow yet, though. The hat is nice. I mostly wanted the snowtubes, though. They were a pain times five to inflate, but are tons of fun. The dolls can sit well in them and have fun sliding down hills, whether there real snowcovered or just a pillow.
My daughter has the snow gear. I think I only ordered it because it came with the pink hat to go with the snowbibs. She hasn't played with it much at all. Sorry I don't have much of a review on it for you. The snowtube is cute though!

I bought both the snow gear and the snow outfit for Inky, but I realized I had really only wanted the snowshoes. I ended up returning the outfit and selling the knitwear and innertube here on Playthings.
I love the snowshoes! They look so much like the ones I lusted after in the REI catalogue as a kid. I took Inky out in the snow with them on, and they actually work well. Inky was much easier to stand up with the snowshoes on and she only sunk into the snow very slightly. As I had returned the matching outfit, I didn't have the proper boots. Luckily, the snowshoes fit just fine over the boots I did have, which are from the 2008 snowboarding accessories.
I give the snow shoes an A, but since I didn't even take the knitwear and tube out of their plastic packaging, I'm going to pass on rating those.
