I think this set is really, really cute. The coat is good quality. I don’t think it’s actually wool, but it feels close to it. It was a little tricky getting this on my relatively skinny PM Kirsten, but I was able to do it. The bonnet is very sweet and also good quality. The beanbag game I could live without. The target is just a flimsy piece of cloth and the targets are painted on. The coat goes with a couple of Kirsten’s outfits, not just her school dress, so you can get a lot of use out of it. I would never have paid $28 for it, but I think it’s worth the $18 sale price. I’d highly recommend this to any Kirsten collector. A
I really, really, like this dress. I think it’s absolutely adorable, and love how it looks on my Kirsten. My favorite part of the dress has to be the boatneck neckline. I also love the little flowers for her hair. The basket does have that cheap plastic feeling, which is a bummer, but for little girls plastic probably holds up better for play, so it’s forgivable. This was Kirsten’s first new dress in 10 years, so she really likes it : ) Overall, I’d give it an A- .
My favorite thing about the housecoat has to be the buttons on it. It’s nice to have a piece of clothing without Velcro. I like the fabric and think it looks really nice with Kirsten’s nightgown. The sockar are very nicely made. And let me tell you, they hold their shape. Mine had been stuffed away in a drawer for years, and when I took them out they were still the same shape they came as. I was impressed. However, I also found the sockar a pain to get on and off. I had problems with them when I was a kid, and I still have problems with them now as an adult. All in all I’d give this set a B+, because although it looks cute, I don’t think the sockar are very child friendly (or uncoordinated adult friendly for that matter).
