Here is AG's description: Little injuries deserve a little tender loving care! Set includes metal crutches, a fleece-lined arm cast and leg cast that fit both left and right limbs, a stretchy wrap bandage, a finger splint, a penguin-shaped ice pack, and two sheets of reusable cast stickers and bandages. Includes sports-injury tips for you!
Here is my review: I really liked this kit! For those with young children, the set is sturdy and easy and fun to play with! The only little part that might be the problem is the finger splint. It is really cute, but small, and easy to misplace- or for the little ones- swallow. The casts are super cute, though I prefer the leg cast. The arm cast isn't as realistic as I would have liked, and I'm not a fan of that shade of yellow, , but since I am totally a girly-girl, I love the purple! I've already decorated both casts; the stickers press on without a lot of fussing about and don't fall off, and each cast has a hinge, so it swings open, you put the doll's arm or leg inside, and snap it shut. Really cool! I thought I was going to have to slide it on. The stretchy bandage only has one velcro side, so it snags when you put it on, because you have to attach it on itself. It is still pretty cute, though...I like wrapping up my doll's ankle. I think it's just the same bandage that was in Marisol's accessories. The crutches are very sturdy, (made of plastic) and my dolls can balance on them for quite a while...especially my loose-limbed dollies! I really love them! Finally, the ice pack, while it is kind of thin, it too is adorable! It's sort of like those squishy, plastic keychains, and it shaped like a penguin. Perfect to calm an injured dollie's nerves! Some may think the set is plasticy, but I like a lot of the new Mattel things (minus that new horse accessories set- bleh!). Like I said, it is very playable. All in all, I totally recommend this set. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures. I am a real silly when it comes to things like downloading pictures. I hope this review helps!
oOOO we love this set!! My daughter had a couple of accidents last month , she fractured her arm 2 times in different places and Johanna sent this as a surprise for her!!! She loved it!! It has lots and lots of playtime!! I love that there are enough peices to make alot of dolls have a boo boo!! This is highly recommended to bring to the ortopedist office. When DD brought in Marisol with a broken arm , leg, crutches, and a ace bandage, the Ortho Dr couldnt get enough, he brought the doll all around the office to show the nurses!!! Wicked Cute!!

You just don't get any cooler than this set! I got this set when I exchanged a duplicate Ready for Fun Outfit, and I'm so glad that I did. I wasn't able to get the original set before it retired, so this worked out great for me. To be honest, I like the Feel Better Kit much more than the original crutches set. A+++ for this set and every piece that is included.
It is a great set. I am a Emergency Room RN and it is so realistic. Although the casts are made of plastic, the lining feels like what we use on our splints. The crutches are so realistic too!! And, that finger splint-almost exactly what we use!! An a+ a hit and great play value.
Just got this for my sister! She loves it and she likes to play "dollie hospital" with it. I actually got mine at AGPNY, but I do not think that alters anything. It came in a box kind of big, but I did like it.
Overall grade: A+
All my Girlz: Stella Retucilli(#22), PM Felicity Merriman, Marisol Luna, Molly McIntire
I got this almost a year ago, but it is still so much fun! My little sister is always taking it and playing doll hospital with her friends so its annoying to find my doll without her cast on The only problem I found it that the stickers don't stay on the casts well, but overall I would still give it an A+

I just bought this set at AGPC and I love it! I'm a nurse also (used to work ortho, now work hospice though) and it is so adorable and realistic! A lot of other reviewers have said all the great things about this set, but I agree! The only minor complaint I have is that my leg cast tends to pop off, but it could be I got one with a looser clasp than others.
PS: No, it does not fit the BB/BT. Their arms and legs are shaped differently and thus it doesn't work!

DD loves this set -- I knew she would. This set is one of the first things she pointed out in the catalog -- the wheelchair was the second!
I love that it's easy for her to play with (LOVE that the casts have hinges and so they open and close). She ADORES the crutches -- she is constantly interested in/fascinated with people's injuries and wants to know how bodies heal, etc. She's 7, and has always been this way, so this set was perfect for her.
For play value, I give this set A++++. Tons of imaginative uses -- I wish AG made a doctor's uniform or set of scrubs, because I think I'll be buying an off-brand set, so that Amanda (DD's JLY) can "doctor" other dollies.

Just bought this set for my DD's 8th birthday, she is IN LOVE w/ this set, she plays w/ it everyday. I was HIGHLY impressed that the crutches are METAL!! I thought at $30f(fall 2011) that the set was a little pricey, but after seeing it in person I think it's actually not too bad a deal. (of course free shipping came about a week AFTER her birthday). I think for a girl younger than 8 though it could be a little frustrating as the casts are sometimes a little hard to get off. She loves to play doctor w/ her dolls and now she can do that more realistically, she likes to pretend they got thrown off their horse and broke their leg/arm. Anyway, this set is great and I don't think you'll be disappointed. I give it an A+++
