I just got this set about two weeks ago for Lindsey and I love it! The only things I'm a bit disappointed in was that the gelt were plastic and had no real weight to them. I've also found that getting the candles into the menorah is a tight squeeze. My favorite part of this set would have to be the Star of David necklace. A+ for this set!

I LOVE the necklace, it is gorgeous. And I absolutely ADORE the menorah. It is heavy and well made. However the candles are plastic, and very easy to lose. I have lost several. Also they are just candles, no fake flame or anything. Also the coins are very cheap, light, plasticy. But the other items in this set make up for it.
I give this set an A-. It is a good price, though!

Hanukkah Gifts Item# GCAHR $14
"To celebrate Hanukkah with her American Girl doll, she can use everything in this set:
* A menorah with pretend candles * A silver Star of David necklace and six golden coins, called gelt * A dreidel—a toy that Jewish girls have loved for centuries"
I love this set. It is definitely worth the cost. The Menorah is real metal (3" x 4"), the candles (1 1/2") are a rubbery/plastic. The coins (7/8" diameter) are plastic and the dreidel (1 1/2" tall) is wooden. The Star of David (1/2") necklace is the best part. Lindsey loves it. Grade A.
This is one of my favorite sets. I also love that the menorah is real metal and has some weight to it. The candles are kind-of hard to get out and I broke one of them as a girl, but I still think it's great that they aren't glued in (I wouldn't be surprised if that happened now) and you can add them with each day of Hanukkah. I loved playing with the dreidel as a girl and that it came with enough gelt to actually play. Marie wears the necklace all the time and it looks like a real necklace.
Mine is the version with a gold menorah and dark blue ribbon for the gelt bag.
