The special kit is filled with everything her doll needs for a fun overnight outing: A pretend electric toothbrush A make-believe retainer and case A bottle she can imagine is filled with face wash A zippered, vinyl cosmetic bag, featuring nylon handles and a star graphic on the side $16
I just bought this from e-bay NIB.
electric toothbrush This is hot pink and looks very realistic, it has real bristles and a purple button that depresses but doesn't really do anything But it is cute!
retainer and case As with all AG retainers it is glued into the case. The case does open an you can see a little blue retainer inside. It looks like the kind of retainers they give out these days , that are more like invisaligne and not like theold ones with wire. At first I didn't think it looked much like a retainer so I showed it to my husband and asked him what he thought it was. His exact words" I have no clue, some kind of retainer for American girl or something?" So I guess they did a good job!! It will look cute on a night table or something.
bottle It's just that a bottle with a fancy lid. It could really be used as anything but I think it would have bean better if they spent the 10 cents to make a little sticker to indicate what is inside. But I will do that myself. It is cute but toothpaste would have been better.
vinyl cosmetic bag First off the handles are grosgrain ribbon! I love them!! The bag feels really nice, it is excellent quality. It says "My stuff" on the side and is about 3.5 inches in length. It holds all the items it comes with and could hold more. The width is about 1 inch and the height is about 2.
I give this set a B. Although the bag an the toothbrush are fantastic, it seems to be missing something for $16. I think they need a towel, toothbrush or something to really round out the set
I picked this set up off ebay with a lot, but it does not seem to have ever been used - the bottle is still in its original plastic bag. I agree with filleamerican's review, but thought I would add a picture. (and yes, it should have toothpaste!)
