The bathing suit, leis, and necklace are awesome. The hair clip is very pretty and would look great in dark hair. I didn't plan on opening the grass skirt any time soon and not quite sure about the ukelele. It is cute, but I don't see my dolls using it.

This set just arrived today for me! It's so cute and tropical. I love that the bathing suit has snaps, too, because it can stay todether better, than say Jess' meet halter, which has a small square of velcro that I wish was a snap. The ukulele is adorable! And the colors are cute! Mom got the set, too, which was part of the reason I got it-I wanted it and decided that if she was ordering it, why wait until later. The leis are neat and look nicely made. And the necklace is cute too. A from me! And now, the pictures (don't mind the fact that I messed up and put the ankle lei on the wrist as a bracelet; I forgot):
and a comparison of the size of the ukulele compared to the guitar, in case anyone wanted to know.
This is a GREAT set! I am SO happy I got it. The highlights are by far the ukulele, the necklace, and the flower leis. The beaded necklace alone make the set IMO. The bathing suit is very cute, as well as the skirt. I think the snaps on the bathing suit are flimsy but that may be just me. Especially with the reduced price - the set is well worth the $18. If you like it, or some parts of it - get it. It is a great set.

This is one of my favorite outfits, and a must-have since I live in Hawaii.
Everyone above has done such an excellent job describing the outfit, so I'll only mention one or two things. First off, the kukui nut necklace - kukui nuts are generally round, not flat like they are here, and I haven't seen too many painted kukui nut leis (or necklaces). Small nitpick there.
ZenPug mentioned that it was difficult to see the necklace when the lei was on. It's very common to wear multiple leis on special occasions like birthdays or graduations. Also, you can see more of the necklace when you put the lei on the proper way. Leis should be worn with half in the front, half in the back - in other words, centered on the shoulders and not just hanging off the neck (that said, they do tend to slip).
LOVE the pineapple ukelele. It really is precious!
This is my favorite AG bathing suit! The colors are so vibrant and tropical, and it's SO easy to get on. The grass skirt is very cute as well. The clip stays in very nicely, and the leis/necklace really give the outfit a finished look!
