I have the hat that I got it a lot off craigslist. Licorice wears it all the time. Made well, not going to fall apart anytime soon, but doesn't really stay on head. Just kinda sits there on top. The stars are cute; they're embroidered on the front in a group.
Got the original licorice back in my younger days and she's still meowing. I lost the yarn ball a while ago, but still have her metal stretchy collar and her fluffy bed. She's a cute cat and somewhat proportional to the dolls.
Love this outfit. It fits well even on PC dolls and is very cute. It's a good value considering you get the boots, as well as all the mix-n-match possibilities. The only worry I have is the scarf snagging on the velcro.
Got the complete set in great condition off Craigslist for a steal of a $15 price. I love it, but it's difficult to pose dolls with tighter limbs. Yet, it looks great with the dolls, however they are posed. It also makes for easier storage as it folds like a regular scooter.
I got all the pieces off Craigslist for $15 from a girl not much older than me that was selling parts of her childhood collection. The with all the things in it is kinda bulky when the doll wears it, but fits well and stays up. Everything is well made, and the computer still works, I just have to replace the battery.
A nice little book from the AG Hallmark Collection that is an analog version of goodreads.com for girls. Entitled My Reading Diary, there are 3 sections: Books I Have Read, Books I Want to Read, and My Top Ten Books.
The tin is small and rectangular, about 2 inches tall. The lid has all 7 original historical characters in their holiday outfits pictured. Included are 5 small cookie cutters in the shapes of a star, circle, moon, heart, and gingerbread man. There are also 8 recipe cards, one for each of the 8 original historical characters, with recipes related to each of their stories and cultures.
I never knew that the books were sold at Hallmark, but a thrift store find shows that they were.
I have the Hallmark AG Collection version of Meet Felicity. I'm not sure if only the meet books were released, or the rest of the core series for each character. The only differences are on the back cover and spine of the book.
I got this outfit at the MoA in April. I like that there are individual pieces for mix and match possibilities. Although I like the style and quality and the colors individually (blue is my favorite color), the whole combination seems drab and dreary to me. Well anyway, I love the shoes. They are great, I can't stress that enough.
I got this outfit from the Cyber Monday sale in 2011. I love the classic look of the romper. It's very 30's-esque to me. Timeless in a way. Although it does not fit perfectly. It is snug on Petra who is PM. I like the hat, it's simple, but I'm not that much of a fan. The shoes are cute and fit well.
When I was little I had this costume for Halloween, as well as the matching one for my doll. I have no clue where either outfit is, but have one saving grace of the doll headband that is currently in my possession. I love it and it's adorable. I imagine it can be used without the costume for a more boho look.
While I seem to have misplaced the circlet, the outfit still looks fine. I find it to be especially cute- maybe it's all the lace and frilly-ness. The outfit is generally good quality except that the socks are exceptionally easy to snag.
Something I thought I'd never get my hands on. I got this off CL for $30 which I believe was a steal. It's in great condition and is adorable. Good quality. I used Samantha's meet tights, but wish it came with its own pair. The outfit is a deep blue, low key and timeless. The hat is kinda fragile, don't throw it around and it will be fine. And take care with the lifesaver to not nick chunks out of the styrofoam.
Samantha was the last doll I got before I went on doll-buying hiatus. I purchased her at AGPC in 2004 with my own money that I earned having a fun fair for kids in my neighborhood.
Ain't she a beauty? I love her to pieces. And her condition is great. Her hair has maintained its curl after all these years. Her light skin contrasts with the dark hair, making for a striking, yet eye-pleasing combination.
Kaya was my first historical doll and the most important doll I own. I love her to pieces. I got her for my 10th birthday from my dad who had my aunt get her from the MCM for him. She's somewhere around a first run doll, with the darker skin tone. She is lovely, really. Just don't take out her hair. I did when I was young, and managed just fine, but that's because I was very careful and prepared with my mister and brush at hand.
My Kaya is historical, but I'll put her in modern clothes to see how pretty she looks. I really love her skin tone- wish they would use it more.
I snagged these on Cyber Monday for $7 (?). And I love them, so I wouldn't mind paying full price. They remind me of uggs in their shape, but the fabric, fit, and detail is so much better. They are rather classy with the sparkly bow and smooth, neutral shade. They fit PM feet well, after getting them on, that is. They velcro up the back. They won't fit with socks on, and even if they do manage with smaller doll feet, I worry about snagging, which happened to me.
I got these shoes off Cyber Monday for $6 (?). While they are cute and versatile, they aren't outfit specific, I would not buy them for their original price. I put them on Petra and they were a bit of a squeeze. They go on fine, but when it's time to velcro the zig-zag straps, you really have to pull to secure them. That saying, Petra is a PM #12, I have yet to try them on Kaya who has considerably smaller feet.
The sweater is adorable, and a great addition to a sweater wardrobe. It goes great with jeans. The color is literally that tomato red. I like how the edges curl up, making it seem thicker than it actually is. While the polar bear design is not appealing on an actual sweater, seeing as this is for the holidays, it screams Ugly Sweater Party to me. The headband is sort of ridiculous, it would be nice if it could actually cover the ears and wasn't a total wrap around headband. But it was kinda difficult to get the headband around the head, and then to have it sit in a good position with the hair nice.
While I don't have Kit's bed, I got this set at the fabulous price of $11 on Cyber Monday 2011 as a cover for the AGoT bunk beds.
It's great! It's a nice big cover in great shades. Perfect for keeping your doll warm on chilly nights. The throw pillow coordinates well and has the same colors as the quilt. I found that it surprisingly goes well with the bunk beds and their lurid yellow frame.
I love how detailed every piece is. The book has colored pages. The phone holder lifts up when you pick up the ear-piece. And the light actually lights up AND the neck moves too! The only downfall I can see about this set is that there are only 3 pieces that comprise it. All the other nighttime sets have many more things.
I'm not sure how this works, but I've had only one AG hairbrush ever. And I got it over 10 years ago at the same time I bought my first doll. It works fine, has forever. There are no bristles missing and the only real wear and tear is a few dings on the sides from so much use. Heck! I even have the original PC sticker still on the handle.
This bedding set was made for the 3-in-1 bed, but most pieces can be used in any other bedroom setting. This was the second set of bedding released to go with the 3-in-1 bed.
While the set includes a few more pieces, such as light covers, I got this in a lot from CL, so I'll only review what I own.
The blanket is not really so much a blanket as a double-sided satin quadrilateral of fabric. It is literally just that. There's no stuffing or layering. The stool cover is in the same green satin as on one side of the blanket. It goes over the stool and remains their until you want to take it off; there's no elastic and there's a rim of sequins. The actual tiara of the bedding is quite ghastly. It looms over the top embedded with glued-on "jewels". Behind it there are two bars attached and then those are attached to the weight that balances and keeps the tiara in place. The draperie is a sort of mesh tulle, thin and a deep magenta. It hangs through the loops of the bed and is very long so that it touches the ground on both sides of the bed. The small round pillow is satin and in a cylindrical shape in a solid pink. There were a few other small accessories that came with the set, but I can only attest for the perfume bottle and the powder container. Each are just small pieces of plasic, cute but nothing else.
