I only have one Kit, but since no one with 2 Kits has been able to compare them, I will try. I have a Kit from the first year she was released, and a more recent Mattel #24. They have the same freckles and close hair color, so I thought seeing them together might help show the differences in face shape.
Kit's face is much rounder than Kelsey's.
She is always looking downward in comparison to my newer Mattel dolls, like the PM dolls seem to be.
To further illustrate that point, this was taken on eye level with Kelsey:
Kit is awesome and I love her, even if she does always stare at the ground

I love this outfit. The detailing is awesome. It's easy to put on and remove, and the fabrics seem durable. You get a shirt, pants, shoes, and a "book" that is more of a paperdoll playset.
The knees are made to look reinforced. The shoes are a dark teal color.
The shirt is the highlight. The green part is very bright, almost lime. The trim and stitching on the front detail is navy blue.
The "book" is a paperdoll type playset with a dog house and 2 dogs. It was a bit of a letdown for me because I was hoping for a story about puppies featuring 2 boy twins. It's cute, but I am skeptical that it would hold up to much play by a young child.
I LOVE this outfit on the bigger dolls. I don't think I can get Kelsey (#24) to part with it. Obviously, the pants become capris, but you could pair the shirt with something else. The shoes fit the BTs and the 18 inch dolls well. It definitely gets an A in my book.

I give this outfit an A. It seems sturdy and it's easy to put on the doll. I really like the colors. For $24 you get a shirt, pair of jeans, red sneakers, and the book the Bitty Twins Learn to Share. The sneakers are definitely easier to put on than the similar red sneakers included with the previous meet outfit (Plaid & Denim Outfit 2008-2010). The fit on the BTs is good, though this outfit really doesn't work for the 18 inch dolls. I especially like the shirt because it has such a good weight to it.

However, this outfit is not the best for the bigger dolls. The fit of the pants is really tight and off even on my slimmer Mattel dolls. I think the shirt might work with different pants. The shoes fit the 18 inch kids just fine.
If you want to cover the top of the pants with the shirt, you end up with this odd neck area gap:
If you pull the shirt up to cover the gap, it doesn't cover the pants:
The book was decent, but I was confused at the inclusion of a Parents' section about how to encourage toddlers to share tagged on to the end.

I actually really like this. I'm not crazy about the shirt's opening or the headscarf, but it matches my bitty's personality, if you will. We love pants in this house. The pants alone get an A for seeming durable and easy to get on and off. The shoes also come on and off easily, and I love the color. I'd give it an A-.
I think the pants and shoes really work for bitty twin boys as well. He's going to be fighting my bitty baby over them, I think.

I know it's been forever since anything was added to this thread, but I wanted to say that I'd give these outfits an A-. They are well made, but the shirts I have have always seemed very tight on the dolls, hard to close in the back, actually. I originally got this for a Bitty Baby rather than a Twin, so I though that maybe the fit was off because of that, but now I have a Twin and it's noticably tight on him, too. I really like the set, aside from that, but I wanted to put that caution out there. I feel like it would be rather difficult for a child to get the shirts on the dolls.
