I love this one! I've had it since I was a kid too. The pieces are really versatile. The only thing I don't like are the shoes. Mine actually came with different shoes... flimsy sandals that were meant to be flip-flops with beads on the toes. They're made of that soft "leather" material... They look alright, but they don't stay on in play very well.
Hi BuckinghamAlice! Are the shoes you mention the ones that go with the Kwanzaa Outfit? I've noticed that it often comes with those on eBay, and I want to message the seller saying "Wrong shoes!", ha. Did you get your Play Outfit secondhand or from AG, because I wonder if for a while they sold them with those flip-flop sandals?

Is there information available about the change that seems to have happened to Gwen between February and March of this year? I noticed that her picture on the AG website has changed (her hair is in a half-ponytail and they moved the headband to her dress as a belt). I found a Wikipedia article that says the "new" Gwen has longer bangs, too. Does anyone have first-hand experience?
I'm a little annoyed that it seems not only will Gwen's price sky-rocket on the secondhand market after 2009 because she is an LE doll, but possibly even MORE so right now if she is the "original" Gwen (that for some reason only sold for a month or two??!?). I'm a bit confused, and would love other opinions. I could just be misinformed!
