Dog Sled Item# G2236 $26 Get set for a winter adventure! My American Girl™ dolls can go for a ride with this sled. It has elastic straps to help her hold on while Pepper™ “pulls” her through the snow. Includes a turquoise lead that attaches to a soft harness.
This sled is much smaller than the original sled (Review for that sled is HERE). This new sled is plastic, but it's made to look like real wood. AG did a good job there of making it look real. A plus to this sled compared to the first issue one is that there are elastic bands to hold the doll's feet as well as her hands in place to help her stay on the sled.
Although the front is not big enough to hold a doll, it does hold her packages (or her puppy!)
The light blue lead is permanently attached to the sled, while the harness and leash can come off. The harness, however is attached to the leash and is quite hard to put on the dog since it has no velcro nor elastic to help in dressing the lead dog.
Just my opinion, but I think Pepper is much more to scale with this sled than the original husky and her sled.
Overall a cute item and fun to have. Much sturdier than the original wooden one. Grade A.
