This set includes PJ top, bottoms, slippers, and a little dream book.
The top actually closes girl-style! Shock! The frogs are decorative, the shirt closes in the back with velcro. The fabric is a lovely deep purple with silver metallic snowflakes and lighter purple snowflakes beneath. Lavender trim accents hems and forms the frogs.
The slippers are horrid. They will not stay on feet and the doll cannot stand up while wearing them. I've had this outfit for years and I actually hid the slippers in my box of Annoying Doll Items. Overall Grade: A+
I adore these pajamas, but I agree that the slippers are horrible! I love the idea of them--soft, purple, squishy, they look so comfortable--but in practice they're useless. The fabric of the pajamas is soft and the metallic snowflakes add a nice accent.
I really love these PJs. The slippers are my favourite part, but if you want them to stay on, it’s not going to happen. The material is thicker than the more recent PJs that AG has been making, and this is one reason that I like these ones more. They just seem more durable, in my opinion. The snowflakes on the PJs are very pretty and shiny, and I’m a big fan of dark blue. Molly’s wearing these PJs right now, and she looks stunning in them.
My grade: A (The A lost a + because of the slippers not staying on well.)
The PJs - you have to realize that, upon buying this set, it will ONLY really work for winter. I wish the design had been stars rather than snowflakes so it could work year round, but we knew it was snowflakes when we bought it, so... I love the thick, satiny fabric these PJs are made from, and the color - rich dark purple - is great. The snowflakes are printed in an elegant silver tone, and all is edged in a lighter purple trim. The pants pull up with elastic, and although there are frog loops on the top they aren't functional, instead the top velcros up the back. They look really nice on Ashley, I think overall I'll give them a B.
The slippers - these won't stay on the doll's feet, I wish they had those clear elastic straps the new AG slides have. They are a cute, realistic concept, and would probably look nice in a bedroom display, but for actual use I'm afraid they get a C.
I had a set of these PJs from eBay for a little while. The snowflake print on the fabric appeared to be wearing off. Either they're not very durable or they hadn't been handled very kindly. Otherwise I liked them fine for fit, color, usability, etc. I didn't have the slippers.

I give them an A+. They are nicely made. The top is a knit and the pants are a silky polyester as someone mentioned. The outfit has a good fit on the dolls and doesn't snag. The color looks good on any doll made by AG.
We have the pjs for girls and dolls. The shirt hasn't held up to machine washing very well, but the pants are nicely made. You should be fine if you're planning to buy these pajamas for dolls. The color is goregous on most of them!
