I like this outfit, too. I don't know if there is actually an outfit that I don't like. NE way, the shoes are a bit difficult and the fabric strap on one of them is too big. I have found this the case on both the shoes that came with the dress, and a replacemet pair after DD lost one of the originals. Anyone else have difficulty with the shoes?
Very cute dress and hat. I don't care much for the shoes, either. I find that I am buying more of the elastic bands for the shoes. So much so that I just bought a plastic bowl full at the beauty supply. I can use them for DD's hair too which is a plus(I guess).
This is by far my favorite AGT!! Even though AGT #15 was my first Today girl back in 1997, I came across #11 at a yard sale in 2004, and she knocked me over. Her shiny black hair is so pretty, and the style suits her facial features.
A lot of people don;t care for Addy's face mold, but I happen to think it is the best mold they have. I may also be biased in that this mold depicts what most of my family members faces are shaped like. Especially the cheek and forehead area.
I have all versions of this doll, too. I have the 1st issue, two Mattel issues(one on the way), and a PM issue from 1998. Most of my girls have been rewigged. Here are a couple of pics:
PM #11-rewigged(far left), 1st issue #11(2nd from left), Mattel(yard sale) #11(in red AG sweatshirt)
I bought this doll particularly because I don't know many collectors who have her. I didn't even expect to really bond with her as I was just on a kick to see if I could own all of the AGTs. Well, I am since over that kick, and have begun selling off my dolls. Everytime I find Kadijah (what I named my #1) in the sale pile, I pick her up and dust off her face and put her in the keep pile. I decided tonight that Kadijah stays, and decided to do a review for her (since there wasn't one).
I'm still not fully sure that I've bonded with her, but she has something on me, I guess. I love her textured hair. I don't have a preference for PM or Mattel, but I do notice the differences. My #1 is a Mattel purchased online two years ago. Her hair is much softer than my 1994 Addy, my 1995 #15, and even my 19?? #18's hair. I love her original style so much that I have never changed it. I have never even brushed her hair. It is so soft I can just run my fingers through it.
She has a more slender face, too and she is one of the newer bodied taller Mattel AGs. She has stayed strung tight the entire time that I've had her
For right now I am going to give Kadijah a B-. I'll probably change my mind later and come back to give her an A because that is what kinda hold she has on me.
I have to add my Rainne to this thread. She is my first Today girl. I just love her hair, though thanks to my daughter, Rainne's had a trim. She's still gorgeous though.
Rainne is on the right, and TD Kiana is on the left. TD Kiana really touched our hearts when she visited last year. Hosting her really helped us at a very trying time in our lives. We really miss her. She was so sweet.

I had to have her!!! The day she was realeased, I had not even seen a picture of her. I just heard that she was medium tone and had wavy hair. I called AGPC, and ordered her right away. Waiting the two days it took for her to get here was torture, but oh so worth it. She is IMO gorgeous!!
I broke down and purchased this set when I saw this pic on HB. It is adorable. Not to mention that I am greedy and now have all of the Bittys that AG offers except the brunette(who isn't far behind), and will need holiday outfits for all of them.
I have the AG version that was on sale for a while. The crown is flimsy and it is not made out of anything that heavy. The sleeves are tight on my Molly and she will never be able to raise her arms in this outfit. I like that the skirt is pleated. The material feels different. I don't know materials so I could not speculate. It is not as stiff as I thought it would be. I love the little blue bloomers taht come with it. They are very cute. I wish it came with tap shoes and socks. Bummer that it doesn't.
My Molly looks more like a super hero than a tap dancer...
It's Adorable! I was expecting this to be big and clumsy looking. I don't understand the urge I had to get these, but I'm glad that I did. The Fantasia flipbook takes me back to when I was a kid. The yo-yo is made of wood. The little ballerina feels like very hard plastic, but she is really cute. She has on a real netted tutu. The miniature paint kit is cute. I will have to keep it away from DD though. I'd like for it to stay cute.
What I really didn't like were the barettes. They are big like my daughters, and don't look like they would fit on Molly's braids.
These shoes are cute. I was expecting them to be soft and flimsy, but they are not. They feel really sturdy, I guess as far as doll shoes go. The sole is hard. I think they are rather cute. I'm glad that I got them.
I'm sure you could find some on ebay that are comparable. But I guess $8 with free shipping was appealing enough for me.
Well thanks to another Kirsten lover, I was able to get this set for about retail on ebay!
It is the cutest thing. The little honey pots are ceramic. They aren't heavy, but not cheap and fragile either. There's a little leaflet that lets you know what the days events are. And that little whistle is too cute. It really works too.
I can imagine Kirsten sitting under a nice shady tree on the fourth just chillin.
I bought this set with the CODE last year. I finally got around to getting Kirsten's Summer dress and straw hat last month. I love this set, but agree that the fishing pole is a bit more fragile than I would like. I wish it snapped into place. I was kinda leery letting my DD play with it.
