I love this outfit. The blouse is separate from the skirt, so can be worn with different things. The skirt is adorable, the sweater is perfect, and the oval hat is to die for! (The bow is supposed to go on the side of her head, for the perfect fit).

I'm not really sure what to call the new black pants at AGP. They are tight, soft, and remind me of dance pants. The cutest part of these pants are the gathered pockets, and the fold down waist. They cost $8 and are adorable.

I was thrilled to see that Kit's new items had to do with her story. In Kit Saves the Day Kit and her family are in the process of canning. I loved that the new accessory set had to do with that part of her story.
Overall I give this set a B. The price is high for how many pieces are plastic. The jars are plastic (oh I wish they were glass!) as well as the bowl. The colander is metal and the pot is metal. The jars don't open, so the fruit inside is stuck. The whole fruit is stuck together, but is cute. The apron is adorable.Kit wore the apron from this set in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl movie/DVD.

Ruthie is Kit's best friend from 1934. She comes in a pretty purple dress, a purple hair bow, blue socks and black shoes.
She is so pretty, her hair is dark! Almost as dark as JLY #25's. I'd say it is Jess's color and her eyes are gray.
Her hair is curly and easy to style, and will look good in lots of styles. I love Ruthie's meet dress because it is light and summery. The cotton is thin and soft, similar to Egyptian cotton. The detailing is cute, and Ruthie looks fantastic in purple.
I give Ruthie a B just because she has gray eyes instead of the beautiful brown that is shown in her books. Otherwise she is perfect!

I just got one today (February 2008) straight from AG. It was in a new box with a new pamphlet and it is wood! Heavy and nice with real metal. No plastic whatsoever. This is one of my top five accessories. I'm so glad I finally ordered it.
It didn't come with a recipe card however. I would love a scan if anybody is willing to do that.

I quite like them, I mix and match them with everything, even if they don't match. I few of my favorite outfits to mix these with are the jeans (with any top), Kailey's meet dress, and shorts of any type. I think the elastic and embroidery is nice and sturdy.
I love these shoes, I give them a B, just because the price is a little high.

I adore Ivy. She is easily the cutest doll I have in my collection. She looks so young next to the other dolls, so sweet, so innocent. My Ivy doll is only 7, the youngest of all my girls. She is too too sweet.

Santa's Helper outfit is very cute. I love the color of red, it strikes me as the color of candied apples. I'm sure Violet is going to be thrilled to have this outfit in her wardrobe. I love that the gold embroidery on the bottom of the dress goes all the way around the dress instead of just being in the front. The belt also goes all the way around. Although it is not removable it does wrap the entire way around the waist. The black books are must haves, they look great on, and are very versitle. I love the fake fur on the hat and sleeves, but the fur on the sleeves is too thick and won't fit through the Velveteen coat sleeve well. This means that Violet will not likely be wearing both outfits at once. I also love the hat and scarf. I wish this outfit came with a little extra, like a Santa mug or a roll of wrapping paper and tape. One of the things I love with the Let is Snow PJs is the little Coconut Mug, I wish all the outfits came with a little accessory. Grade: A

The Velveteen Coat is another great set, and it is so classic! One thing I didn't like about it was the price, it seems kinda steep for just the coat and boots. The coat is beautiful, and fully lined. The buttons are real, so there is no Velcro on the entire coat. The boots are just as cute, I love tall boots. The hair ties are really annoying, because they are too short to be pulled around the hair twice, but too loose if you only wrap them around the hair once. I'm not sure I'll use the hair ties much. Again, I would have loved this outfit to come with a little something else, like a Caroling book or a string of Christmas lights. All in all it is very cute. Grade: A- (because of the hair ties and the price).
Traveling Lily was kind enough to model the Velveteen Coat. She wore it with 2005's Christmas outfit, the black and cream one, it goes perfectly with this coat.

AG has changed Kit's Amelia doll. Now her coat is no longer removable, and neither is her hat. I could easily clip a couple of threads connecting her had to her head and remove it, but what really bugs me it the coat. Amelia's arms are way too short and her hands don't even poke out of the bottom of the sleeves. Her gloves look useless flapping there without any hands in them.
Needless to say, I'm going to return this version of the doll, and head to ebay.
