As others have said, the necklace is a tight fit, a pain, and that's why I have not taken it off even once since putting it on her when I got her for Christmas. It's heavier than I thought it'd be though, so I'll give AG that. I remember having a name necklace myself once, when I was a kid, except it was silver instead of gold like Julie's. Her bicentennial quarter is not as interesting to me as say, Felicity's bit, or Josefina's jola coin, but I understand that it too has significance. The remainder of this set, the hat and the purse, I absolutely love. The hat fits perfectly on Julie, and the purse, since it's versatile, gets a lot of use. Overall, I find this set to be well worth the $24, so those of you who usually get the dolls' accessories should definitely get Julie's. Grade: A (some points taken off because of uninterestingness of quarter and tightness of necklace)
There's probably no need for more pictures, but I want to add that this seal was much bigger than I anticipated she'd be, not that I'm complaining because that means I got my money's worth of course. People have been referring to it as a "he" on here, but if they've read the books they would know that Kanani names the seal Malana, and is therefore a female. Not getting snippy, just simply correcting those people. Anyway, this seal is very cute, soft, and hug-able. I give her an A+ for sure.
Cute costume, and the leggings have mix-and-match potential with other outfits. Two minor warnings: It is a bit difficult to get the shoes on, but thankfully, once they're on, they stay on, and it catches fur very easily if you have pets, as all black does. My advice would be to keep your doll, when she's in this costume, away from your pets. Besides those two minor cons, this costume is a must have. Grade: A
The best part of this set is, hands down, the dog and the tote. The rest is just cheap paper and plastic bits. Definitely not worth $28, but maybe $18 for the dog and tote alone. The camera is kind of cute, but I wasn't really in dire need of another one, as I already have two AG cameras. Grade: B-
This outfit is simple, yet cute, though I don't use the sunglasses much because I love Kanani's eyes. The shirt does have a tendency of bunching up, and it's almost impossible for her to sit in the capris (that's how tight they are), but the sandals stay on nicely, and I don't even mind that the belt isn't removable. Grade: A-
Everything about this set screams cute! The night gown itself, the slippers, AND the orangutan. Regardless of whether you have Lanie, this set is a must have! Of all the AG night time clothes I've seen, this one is probably my favorite! Oh, also, I haven't had any problems with the orangutan shedding, but maybe that's just me! The slippers stay on pretty good because in the back they have elastic straps. There is one downside to the night gown: It catches fur very easily if you have pets. Grade: A+
I'll admit I was being biased when I bought Ginger. I bought her simply because she's a calico, and therefore reminds me of my real calico cat, Dottie. I LOVE calico cats, so it goes without saying that I love Ginger, although she'd look even more like my Dottie if she was mostly white instead of mostly orange! I think it's cute how her head tilts to one side, and I like that her tail is posable since the tails on the dogs aren't posable! I give Ginger an A+ because of her posable tail and just her overall cuteness. I was glad when they released Praline so that she's not the only cat amongst four dogs anymore!
I love this dog's piercing blue eyes, but I'm disappointed that he's too big to fit in the bed and carrier, as I "play" with him more than I do with Sugar, the other dog I have. AG should have a warning about that on the site and in the catalogs. For this reason, this dog gets a B+ instead of an A from me, but he's still one of my favorites of the AG dogs. I'm going to be getting the dog sled for him and the snow flurry outfit for my JLY #27 so that I can display them by the tree in the living room around Christmas.
This dog's fur appears to be well-groomed on the site and in the catalogs, but in real life, he looks like he was hit by a tornado. No matter how many times you brush back the fur around his ears, it's sticking straight up again within minutes of holding him, but maybe this is how a real Yorky's fur is. I wouldn't know since I don't have one. Still, he's a cute dog in spite of his fur being untamable. I give him an A. Not an A+ because of his untamable fur, but not an A- or B because other than that he's cute.
