I originally declined to purchase the MyAG Kayak and Gear set because of its similarity to Jess's kayak. However, time passed, the kayak set retired, and I decided I still needed it. One detail that drove me to pick it over the Jess set is that it doesn't say "Belize Adventure" on the side, has more realistic coloring, and the paddles are shaped more appropriately.
The set includes:
blue drawstring storage bag
red life vest
Please not that the box and the kayak both state that they should not be placed in water. I placed my kayaks into flowing water at my own risk; I recommend that you only do this if you are prepared for the potential consequence of a wet doll!
The kayak does float well, although it tends to loll from side to side because it cannot support the weight of a doll. When I was using it, I placed rocks under the kayak to hold it flat. It's a great toy!
The life jacket is well-made, though the straps are a bit loose. I thought it should fit more tightly, but it's not a big problem. The bag easily fits both the kayak (when deflated, obviously) and the life jacket.
Like the Jess paddle, the MyAG kayak paddle is a rain stick. It's not particularly lovely sounding, the beads tends the thunk from one side to the other in a most unpleasant way, but it's a cute touch.
