One of my favourites, the Flower Garden outfit, while not totally amazing is the perfect spring dress for any doll. The dress is a long cut, silky flowered material that fits well all dolls. An added bonus is that the velcro is no-snag. The bag is indredibly detailed with a cross woven ribbon design. It fits easily over your doll's hand and doesn't fall off. One of the best things is that it is an actual purse that can hold small things; I put a rolled up AG ribbon in mine. The hat is wonderful with vine stiched details. It fits their heads really well and can be positioned in a variety of ways. To top it all off, or in reality bottom it off, the shoes are of incredible quality and versatility. A nice cream vinyl, they secure with snaps and stay on no matter what.
No complaints about this set. Like a few of my other PC items, I got this from a friend when she found out I loved AG dolls. The pieces are very good quality and I would definately buy another set if I wanted to.
The pink fleece that is basically the whole outfit is thick and soft. The robe closes with the attached belt, while the slippers close with velcro on the flaps. Everything fits PC dolls exceptionally well, even the robe is big so you have to overlap the sides when tying it closed. I have no trouble getting on the slippers on any doll at all.
I don't have the plaid AG pajamas that originally matched it, and I don't pair it with more modern pajamas. Since the robe is so long and the slippers so fuzzy- like slipper socks- I just let my dolls wear the set alone to sleep. Hehe. ;D
Trendy dollies. I remember when this came out in late summer of 2010, because within the week I'd be hitting up AGP- MoA. I bought this there.
The outfit is great for the pieces and the coordination of all of them, but the pink and purple, bleh. I like how simple all the components are, just solid colors that can be used for any season or occasion. The white shirt is quality with a velcro back and that darn AG patch near the wrist. I very much appreciate that the skirt does not have velcro, it makes it so much easier to fit on PM dolls. The boots are stylish, if only they would fit PM dolls better, because they fit Mattel dolls perfectly, with no need to pull and strech them just to get the velcro on the back closed. The cape gives the outfit a pattern pop of pink plaid. However, I have no idea how the darn thing is supposted to lay on the doll's shoulders. The catelogues and stores have it displayed in different ways all the time! I ususally let the buttons be in front. Overall, not a bad outfit, in reality I love it and would wear something similar in fall, just not the colors.

I got this outfit from a friend when I was about 10. I didn't know what it was at the time, until she gave me a bunch of PC catalogues too. However, I only was given the shirt and dress.
Holy '90's! The dress is a colorful fruit pattern that I love. The cut, although long, has managed to retain its cool factor as I deem it "retro". It's just plain cute, and when you pair it with the shirt, even more so. I love that everything fits all girls so well, with no struggle to put anything on. The shirt can even be used as just a plain t-shirt. Hooray for mix-n-matching abilities!

I only have the performance dress and the medal from this set, as I got them in a lot from CL. Either way, I'll review them for the benefit of others.
I give the dress a grade A, due to the fact that I have been able to use it as a regular dress or shirt in addition to a skating outfit. The stretchy pink is accented with sequins and a floral applique. The color is vibrant, and although pink, doesn't bother me as some of the other pink hues AG has put out. I would have given it a few more points if only I wasn't constantly worrying about the bottom fraying. The ends of the sheer tule are not hemmed or finished in anyway, so watch out for snagging. The medal shocked me, being that it is made of actual metal! Very good quality. The rhinestone bobby pins are cute and well made.
Kaya was willing to model the fashion.

This outfit is great for mix and matching. I love it together, but when you take the basic pieces and match them with other clothes, it's awesome. The jean jacket can be used for any season, the coconut t-shirt has the glittery detail, and the pockets on the pants aren't fakers. The shoes are cute, but they don't always stay on. But they're sandals and they match a bunch of things. The hairtie is fragile so watch out for that so it doesn't unravel. I lost the watch unfortunately.
Yay the bowling outfit! One of the best AG values for your money. So many pieces and it's completely functional. Although it is a little frumpy, the skirt and shirt are adorable. The best thing is that the skirt can be mixed and matched with basically any shirt. The pins are set and you girl is ready to roll the ball. The glove can snag, but works non the less. With a little flick of her arm the ball is thrown at the pins, releasing from the magnet on the glove. The bag can hold either all three pins or the ball and glove. The ponytail holder is sparkly and the perfect size for the doll. Oh, I almost forgot the shoes. They aren't hard to get on her feet, even with the socks on, and the look rather cute.

She's a Transition #12 and I love her to pieces. I got her on my 8th birthday at AGP-C in 2001. So therefore I've had her for nearly 10 years. :O Her hair does shed a bit, but it doesn't seem as bad as others have described, only some uneven ends. The only complaint I have is that it's difficult to fit her feet into some of the more recent shoes (those canvas sneakers from the skateboarding outfit are killer ). What I really love is that her bangs and hair in different styles really highlight how many different personalities she can have.

With the debute of the Apple Blossom Crackling Fragrance Spray, there was a promotion for a whole bunch of Apple Blossom-related products, but mostly it was centered around this bag and matching coin purse. I have both, but seem to have misplaced the coin purse in moving.
The bag is a unique shape with it fanning out from the flat-based bottom. It is a calm, pale pink and the apple toggle is the same green as every Apple Blossom AG product features. The bag doesn't hold much, and doesn't have a zipper, so is seriously lacking safety wise. When I was young all I could basically put in there was the coin purse and the crackling spray. The base of my bag doesn't stand up flat very well because it's been crushed in a box for years, but when it was new the bag kept it's shape.
The shower tote from the AG Real Beauty line is of great quality and usefulness. It's made with a red soft plasic (vinyl?) and has star cutouts, imprints, and an "American Girl" imprint as well. It holds a lot of stuff- all the AG B&BW products I own- and has no flaws to it at all. Highly reccomended.
The white on it is nothing. Nothing except some deoderant that fell when I took out the tote.
Everything fits with tons of room to spare. I don't keep the bags in the shower tote.
I remember when this came out and they had a bunch of promotions for it. Of course I went right for them. The sensation when you sprayed it was so different and it tickeled for a while until you rubbed your hands together. The smell was pleasant, but unfortunately it didn't last for long.
I really liked these hand sanitizers. They had a great variety of smells that aren't so common on the market- even in today's Bath & Body Works selection. I had Apple Blossom, and although I didn't use much of it, when I did, I can say that it was pretty good.
I love this bag. It's the perfect size for overnights, as I many-a-times used it for. The material is very satin-y and as previously stated, the pins are not removable. The little pockets make it great and it closes with a drawstring and then the flap with a metal snap.
EDIT: OMG I finally learned how to put pictures in! And on my 100th post too. I knew I was saving it for something special!

I got this as a PWP for $16 at AGP-C when they were about to retire it in October 2008. I really like it for some reason, especially when it's something I'd never even think about buying. Maybe it's the price It's a bit fragile of an outfit, with layers of tulle, and the unfinished ends make it seem susceptible to fraying. The color is great. The bad thing is that it doesn't fit PC dolls that perfect, it seems awkward with the way it bunches. Other than that, I love the shoes, when they finally get on the doll's foot. The clips that come with it are great, and work perfect with a ballet bun. And the little program, eh, it's flimsy paper.

This is a great piece of furniture- I only have one chair. I got it for a great price when the old AGP-C used to have a wall of sales. One chair was $14. I couldn't think of a better price for it! The chair is sturdy, a pretty color, and the doll actually sits in it. The color really complements the pillow from Jess' Tree Swing that I have with it. Grade A.
