I agree with a B+. I would give it an A had it come with a little reticule and an A+ if it had an Colonial-era British guinea or pound coin. Actually, Elizabeth can hold the fan if you wedge it between her fingers, but it is often dropped. I think it would actually be ivory or wood: if it was ivory, I would be glad that it was plastic here, or if it was wood, I'd be annoyed.

I wasn't going to get this set, but my mom, who wanted Felicity, and I did the Best Friends thing, and I ended up with them.
I'd rate them a low B. I don't think there's much to it for the price.
First we have the necklace. Along with the pearl drop earrings, it's my favorite part of the set.
Close up of the pearl drop earrings. They match the necklace.
Close up of the hat, which is off white like stated above, and the lace matches the lace on her meet gown. I hate this hat. It's going back in the box here in a sec... it will not stay on at all. It needs a couple of bobby pins or a stampede string or something.
Fan. Off white, plastic, and destined to live in the box with the hat.
The other set of earrings. They've got pink jewels in gold plastic. The set comes with another pair of posts, but I find them irritatingly redundant, since they're the exact same ones Elizabeth comes with. I guess it's handy if you lose a pair, but since the jewels in the second pair of danglies are pink, wouldn't you think the post would have pink jewels too? They don't... They're identical to her meet posts.
The necklace is very cute and the clasp was easy to use. The hat is already lost after eight hours - should have had some type of attachment pins. Fan has no use because she can't 'hold' it without using a magic elastic. Earrings - we haven't tried to take her earrings off yet.
