I bought this set solely for the panda bear, who I have fondly named Cup. It is a great set, but probably a bit overpriced. However, the detail is great. The panda stuffed animal is very, very soft and looks so cute tucked under a doll's arm. The cast has nice details, such as the padding inside and the texture. The pink crutches are sturdy and adorable and the bandage is a cute touch. A, A+ if the price were lower!

I debated getting this since I have the Feel Better set but I wanted McKenna to have her own stuff, particularly her own cast with the signatures of family and friends, and her stuffed Panda.
The cast looks quite realistic and is easy to put on and remove. There's a purple support bandage for when the cast comes off. The little Panda is adorable and the Get Well card from the twins is a nice touch.
Having been extremely impressed with the Feel Better crutches, which are metal and look like the real thing scaled down for dolls, I was really disappointed with McKenna's. They're all plastic and don't seem very substantial at all. They also seem shorter than the FB crutches, and fall a bit short of the doll's underarm. The hand grips are just a whisker too low for the doll to be posed with her hands holding them, too.
I'd rate this set a B-, revised up from a C. The Panda made me do it!

By comparison, the Feel Better crutches fit better:

I was really undecided between this set and the Feel Better set so I ended up ordering both. The panda is adorable, and my new favorite AG plush! The ace bandage and cast are both nice and fit well. The crutches are plastic...but the Feel Better crutches I received are also plastic. If I had known that ahead of time I probably would have skipped the Feel Better set and just have gotten this one.

This set is adorable! I love every single piece. Unfortunately, little miss Charlie (my Shih Tzu, who loves my dolls almost as much as I do) accidentally sat on McKenna's leg this morning. Fortunately, the mail lady came by with her cast and crutches about ten minutes later, and we got her all fixed up. Talk about good timing!
The cast is nice and sturdy, and easy to open and close. The crutches are nice as well, and I love the color of them. It took me a few tries, but I finally taught McKenna how to "use" them. I really like the bandage, though I haven't used it yet. The card isn't really anything special, but it is kind of cute. The little stuffed panda is adorable, but was the extra long tag really necessary, AG? I don't really want to have to cut it off, but it's already getting annoying and I may end up doing just that. McKenna named her new stuffed friend Mei.
Overall grade: A

I like this set okay. My main motivation for getting it was the adorable stuffed panda, plus I also liked the idea of McKenna's friends and family signing her cast. I contemplated skipping this since I have the very old apres ski cast and crutches and whatnot, but I went ahead and grabbed this set anyways. I feel it is a little overpriced for what it is... maybe $26 would have been more appropriate than $30.
Now, I knew the crutches were plastic (unlike my older metal ones) and I didn't think that would bother me much. But the seam down the side throws me off, and the fact that they're a tad too short throws me off. The crutches could have been executed a little better.
