I bought my #42 in 2012 from AG-ATL. She still doesn't have a strong personality, but every time I consider selling her, I'm once again captivated by her looks. I enjoy her hair the most: it's thick and slightly textured so it appears unique compared to the other dolls released over the past few years.
I love Kaya's tepee! The cardLederhosen box it comes in doubles as storage space for the tepee. Just set up the tepee poles that radiate from the center and it's ready for Kaya to inhabit. I appreciate how well the tepee travels--it collapses and is lightweight (as I carried mine to various shooting locations). Two or three dolls can easily sleep or sit in the tepee. Grade: A+
Steps High is an integral role to Kaya's story. I've actually used the horse more than I thought I would in acting out various adventures for Kaya. My only drawback is that I wish I had bought him on Ebay where he's generally $25 cheaper than the AG price. Overall rating: A

I would not recommend the pajamas for girls. I bought a pair in March eager to get the discount on the doll pjs and the cute ones in a girl size. While the doll pjs are adorable, such is not the case with the girl's. First of all, the material is too thin--you would be able to see any patterned undies one is wearing. Second, the top fits snugly but the pj bottoms are seriously a size larger. I bought a size L for myself and the proportions were just completely off. If you check the reviews at the AG site, I'm not the only one that has complained about these frustrations. I was sadly disappointed because I would have loved to own a version of Rebecca's pajamas! However, I am content with the doll pajamas!
The outfit includes a terry robe, satin headband, and fuzzy spa slippers. I like how plush the robe feels and the embroidered details. Even though this is not an outfit my dolls wear regularly, it is well made and worth the $24 cost. Grade: A
Rating: A. Even though the frame is plastic, I still love the hammock. Lanie can lie down and scribble in her book as she bird watches. I love the green fabric of the hammock. Plus the hammock compliments the swing released a few years ago
I bought Molly's Chiffarobe when it was available on one of the weekly sales. Overall, I really like the piece of furniture and it certainly is huge! To put in perspective: my nightstand is 34 inches compared to Molly's chiffarobe at 24 1/2 inches.
Pros: The shoe caddy and the depth of the chiffarobe. The attractive white and red finish which matches the rest of Molly's collection.
Cons: the lack of a rod that stretches the length of the chiffarobe to hang more outfits. But this can be easily fixed with a dowel (and I realize the intention of not adding that was so a girl could place her Molly doll in the chiffarobe itself).
A. I enjoy Chrissa's party treats. The watermelon, sandwiches, and lemonade pitcher are realistic. My only gripe is that the cake stand is too small for the cake slices! While I like the "Words to Live By", the box is too big for the inspirational cards.
I give the Craft Studio an "A". I love all the art items that Chrissa would have used. The wooden craft table is the best item--pale blue that complements the Camp Bunk Bed set. (mod edit to remove broken image link)
I bought Chrissa because I loved the movie and I thought it would be a good idea to buy her before the end of December. I love her creative personality! Dress: "A" because it's lined! And Chrissa looks great in pink. Shoes: they're cute and would look great with jeans, but just don't coordinate with the dress. Chrissa herself: While I love Chrissa, I did find some minor flaws. 1) her hair is shorter than I expected (I thought it was going to be 1/2 inch to an inch longer) but I like that she has the cute flip to it. 2) she has a slightly "lazy" left eye although it's not too noticeable. 3) when standing upright, her entire head is downcast. I'm assuming this is the new trend with the AG dolls, though...
