The doll is closer to the newest version accept her hair is curly and her arms are bent.
I wish it came with a letter from Molly's dad...and/or pictures...but beggars can't be choosers.
The overall scale of the package/box seems off to me, not that I would really know...
The snow globe seems way too big and out of scale for the doll, more like a mini snow-globe for a real girl. It is nearly impossible to refill the water...although I did manage finally by using a squirt bottle meant for melted chocolate (similiar to this one pics.livejournal.com/chubbypanda/pic/003rxr9s) and holding it as tightly against the snowglobe hole as possible (after using a needle nose plyer to unplug the hole)... remarkably though, when I recently pulled out the globe after it being away for 15 or so years, it was only 1/4 empty.
The main reason (as a 10 year-old) that I wanted this was for the nurse doll... I remember wishing the doll had the sleep-eyes. She is in really good condition and I don't think she got much play...although her shoes are missing at first I thought maybe she didn't come with shoes..but then I saw the above reviews and now I vaguely remember the shoes constantly falling off...I'll have to search my barbie bin up in the attic...
For the original $16 this seems like one of the better/most reasonable deals in terms of price/quality that AG has offered.
I'm not good with grading items, so I will let you decide based on what I wrote above and these images:
I just got the accessories today. I don't have Ivy, so I was upset that the earrings don't come with posts and are therefore useless to me. I mostly got this for the bag though; I was a little annoyed because the flower patch was/is only ironed down in the center, so the petals flip up... I'm going to try to iron it down later, hopefully it'll stick.
This was the first item I bought of Mattel! When I saw it at the store I fell in love, and caved. Previously I had been a PM collector. So I think that statement alone speaks for how much I like this outfit . It is so pretty. And as you can see in other's images, it has great detail. - I prefer it with the apron, but that's just me.
My only wish were that the shoes were actually wood, and not plastic. Or (if warping is a fear maybe?), more realistic looking.
I don't know if historically accurate falls in the review section, but to me it is important, so I am curious about the blue color, according to the historical section the paisley print was becoming popular, but I do wonder about this particular pattern and color, which seems a little modern to me. -- I am not a historian though, so I'm not sure.
I rate this A (no + due to the shoes being plastic).
Just got this in the mail today, bought it for my 18" AG's to wear, I think it's adorable. I don't really like the headband though, it looks like something that should go to a mid-evil knights outfit or something! All in all I am pleased... It's a little bit tight but not too bad:
This outfit was featured in the "spotlight savings", and so, even though I do not have a bitty twin, I thought this outfit was too cute to pass up!!
I am pleasantly happy with this outfit!!
My only complaint is the price (even though i got it on sale for $19), the price of $26 does seem a little steep for this outfit. I think the $19 should be the regulare price. Since this is an all-cotton, pretty straight forward pattern.
I give it an A (would be A+ if the price were lower).
