I just received this in the mail today from an ebay seller. I am so relieved because so many people in the review section said the outfit was too snug and the arms on the sweater too short. But I loved this outfit and decided to go ahead and get it anyway since I saw it brand new for a reasoanble price. Everything fits very well and the arms are not short. I am very pleased with how it looks against my doll's skin tone - she is a customized #44 with brown eyes (medium skin). I also like how the snowflake pattern under the bottom of the boots will leave actual imprints if you take the doll out in actual snow. Can't wait! This was a factory resale item, which I just read in another thread are not supposed to be resold but - oh well. I give it a definite A.

I have this set and love it. I know everyone hates plastic, but overall it's not bad. The plastic is heavy and sturdy. I love it because this was my era and we had a dinette set similar to this in the bright yellow color. I use it in my cafeteria scene for my dolls' school.

I purchased the newer tub for my niece. It is a lot smaller than the previous version, which I actully like. It will take up less space and go well with her "Mommy gotta go" bathroom set that features a toilet and sink connected. The soap dish doesn't fit well so I took it off completely and superglued it to the wall in the shower of Lanie's camper. Overall I like it and I like the pale pink bubbles better than the blue. My only complaint is there seems to be less bubbles. You can still see some of the dolls private parts. Eek!

I just purchased this but I think it looks nicer without the turtleneck. I love the searing blue color but I don't care for the silver shoes. I plan to replace those, still it was a good buy for a PWP.

Even though I don't care for the outfit, when I saw the accessories, I just had to get them. The little box is just too cute. The bracelet is very classy and the "Twas the Night before Christmas" book is now the featured book on display in my Library scene. I'm going to pair the fur purse with last year's holiday PWP giveway, which was the ddep red sweater, mittens and headband. The silver loop earrings are so cute, that I've decided to get Kai's ears pierced so she can wear them!

I went after work to AGPNY and purchased this outfit. I love it. THe shoes are my favorite and the little bow on the back is really cute. I'm using the outfit on my Karito Kid doll, so the pants look like capris, which IMHO look better as capris. The sweater is thick and soft.

I don't like writing negative reviews, but this set isn't even worth the $10. The finger nail stickers don't stick! The toenail stickers were a little better, but there is no way these stickers can be used again. They are a pain to take off and usually tear or bend so that they can't be used. Not at all impressed. Save your money. The little cardboard emory boards are cute but are not sturdy and can end up bent.

I absolutley love this. It is made of wood and is very well-made and heavy. The mirror is real not those fake plastic ones where the image is distorted.
Dispite the pretty pink and green colors, the storage bins are hard cardboard like the storage bins that went under the camp bunk beds. I took them out altogether and use the entire tower as a bookshelf.
The earring tree is some type of foam rubber with holes in it to place the earrings. The tray is plastic.
This item looks wonderful in my doll's room and I am glad I purchased it. I don't feel I wasted my money.

Rolling Suitcase ID card Luggage tag Travel wallet two faux plane tickets pretend passport travel stickers
Unfortunately, I do not have pictures but this is my favorite out of all the things I ordered in this release. The suitcase is like the newer ones made today of the extremely hard plastic (forgive me I don't know what they call it). It rolls very easily and the handle comes up. The inside of the suitcase has a mesh pocket that can hold smaller items, just like a real suitcase.
The luggage tage and travel wallet are made to look and feel as it is leather and is very soft to the touch. I simply adore the little travel stickers. The bigger ones can be placed on the suitcase itself and then there are stickers with just the country names that can be placed in the passport.
I've reviewed all of the other suitcases made by AG and I really think this is the best. I just wish it had come with a travel pillow like the one in the Our Generation suitcase that came out earlier this year.

My doll wears her capelet open like in the last picture. This way it doesn't look so tight and confining. My only disappointment is that the boots are hard to close as you can also see from the photo. I wish it had been a blazer as opposed to a capelet but it is still cute.

I've seen this outfit in the store and whereas I love the colors, I do not like the style. It seems more like a baby doll dress - something the Bitty Twins would wear as opposed to the 8-12 age range the MyAG's are supposed to represent.
I purchased the outfit yesteday. I love it but I didn't like the blouse layered under it so my doll wears it without the blouse and it looks great. I think had the dress been totally sleeveless, and the blouse been a turtleneck it would have looked better underneath. But I did not like it layered under cap sleeves. However, overall, it is really cute and I give it an A.

I actually like the set but largely because pink and green are my favorite color combinations and also my sorority colors. Overall, I don't have a problem with it but I do wish the watering can was a little larger but not so large that it could not fit in the tote.
Although I don't own this outfit, I've seen it up close at AGPNY. It is very indicative of the 70s when I was a girl. It actually reminds me of the performance outfits the Partridge Family always wore.
I use mine strictly as background props for my stage diorama. The dolls can't sit on the stool, but I think the idea was for them to be kind of proped up with one leg on the floor. The chair is a sturdy metal, but the other pieces are plastic. They work well as props but that is about it. It really was not worth the $42. I guess that was because of the stool being metal.
I think they have improved on the tent since the posts from 2007 and 2008. I just purchased this last week with the free shipping code (YEH!) and I love it and find it to be very sturdy. I tried doing things to see if the tent would collapse and it didn't. If you snap the poles into the holes securely, you should not have any problems.
