This outfit is very pretty, but I imagine it doesn't hold up well. The velcro snags on the dress very easily. I also find that the dress is really tight, which I guess it's supposed to be but it creates more velcro issues. I love the way it looks on Mia, just wish it was made a little nicer.

Sweetheart Pajamas for Dolls + Charm
My American Girl® dolls can have sweet dreams in these pajamas! They feature:
A short-sleeved tee with a heart graphic at the chest Scrunchy heart-print shorts with tie details at the sides A pair of fleece-lined, knit slipper socks with dangly heart appliqués A “Kind” round charm for the doll’s charm-keeper necklace
The slipper socks are what sold me on this outfit. I absolutely love them! The t-shirt is cute too and looks great with jeans and skirts. The shorts are nice too but very short. They're a little see through, but only with Lanie's dark blue undies. I give this an A+

Hawaiian Monk Seal
In her stories, Kanani helps to rescue a baby Hawaiian monk seal. This one is cute and cuddly, with a plush body and sweet whiskers. Includes a mini newspaper with an article about the seal pup Kanani saved.
I don't typically buy a lot of AG plush, but I like sealife and wanted to get this guy. He's nice and soft, and pretty large.

Kanani's Paddleboard Set Kanani's favorite sport is paddleboarding—she can "catch waves" at the beach with this set:
A graphic paddleboard she can stand on A long paddle she can really hold A nylon life vest with buckle closures to keep her safe A printed beach towel for drying off Faux sunscreen, a map of Kaua‘i, and a mini Beach Sports magazine
This set is great! I was surprised at the sturdiness and weight of the paddleboard. The towel is really nice and pretty large compared to some of the other AG beach towels. The sunscreen is cute and the lid does come off, but the bottle is hard so it's not squeezable. The life vest is nice and has the same pattern on the back that's on Kanani's swimsuit. The map and magazine are ok. They're just paper so not that exciting. Overall I give this set an A+.
Back/bottom of paddleboard - has warnings about not putting in water or sand

From AG's website:
Kanani’s family lives near the ocean, so she spends a lot of time at the beach. This outfit is perfect for sun and fun:
A halter swimsuit featuring a vibrant print and a gathered keyhole at the neckline Nylon board shorts with a contrast waistband and a floral graphic at the left leg A printed headscarf with an attached side-tie to pull back her long hair
I love the swimsuit. It's very stretchy and ties behind the neck. the keyhole is a nice detail. The shorts are cute and match nicely. The headscarf is weird. It's made like a headband with a stretchy piece in back so you can't tie it yourself. I honestly can't see myself using it very much. I would give this outfit an A-. The minus is for the headscarf because otherwise I love this set.

I love this ornament! It's my favorite out of all the ones I have. Felicity has such a sweet expression and the teeny tiny horse brush is so cute. I also love that she looks so much like book felicity. The paint on this ornament is also very well done.

I like the vivid colors in Josefina's outfit. Sombrita is adorable although she's more of a pale gray and white in ornament form while the doll size Sombrita is black and white. I'm not thrilled that the hook is in her head, but I choose to ignore it since I don't hang them.

I love the detail in this ornament, especially in the log and on Kaya's dress. The pups are really cute, and if I remember correctly they're actually fuzzy (I already put myornaments away). Even though the hook is clearly visible, I'm glad it's not sticking out of the top of her head since I do not hang them.

This is one of my favorites out of all the Hallmark ornaments. I love her chair and birthday outfit anyway, so of course I like them in ornament form. Her face is very sweet, I tried to get a closer view in the third picture. It's also nice that the hook is in her back instead of sticking out of the top of her head. I don't hang them, so that position is nicer when they're on display.

I love the chair in this ornament, very detailed. Samantha looks very sweet in her birthday outfit.
While I do have a Christmas tree hook on her, I do not hang her on the tree. The Hallmark ornaments are fairly heavy and don't hang very well. I've had these ornaments for awhile now, but haven't had a place to display them until this year.

Rebecca's coat is nice and soft. It fits well over her meet dress and it's not too tight. It looks great with the hat from Rebecca's accessories. The ends of the muff are stretchy so it's possible to put it over both hands

This gown is gorgeous! I love the detail at the sleeves and the snowflake designs. The shoes are really cute, but a little tighter than most of the other shoes I have. The glovers are stretchy and very easy to use. The tiara is a pain and hard to get on right. I'll have to try an updo like AGR. The comb part is flat so it doesn't work very well with the contours of the doll's head.
I know others have mentioned that this gown looks more purple than blue, but to me it's all blue.

I've had this for a couple years, and it's one of my favorites. I absolutely love the vest and shirt. The both seem very realistic to me and I get a lot of use out of them since they look great with jeans.

This is one of the few accessory sets I had when I was younger and it's still one of my favorites. The beans that came with mine are definitely seem real. They don't look or feel like plastic at all, and they vary in size and shape.

Overall a very cute outfit with versatile pieces. I love the pants. they are such a nice color, fit well, and are super soft. The shirt is cute and has the same stretchy material around the neckline as the headband. The headband is really stretchy, unlike the older headbands. It's very easy to get on without messing up their hair, however it's a very thin material, so it seems like it may be easily snagged.
The shirt looks cute with the MyAG meet pants too.

I got Sadie the first year that the Girl of Today line came out. I chose her because she sorta looked like me. My hair is almost the exact color of Mia's, but this was as close as I could get at the time! I love her soft PM lashes and her hair is super thick.
