This jacket was available for club members to purchase for $15 or use points they had been awarded. It is made of shiny material with one side in red and white and the other in dark and light purples.
I give it a B simply because it snags so easily with normal play and the cuffs yellowed significantly over time. However, the jacket looks cute on most dolls and is great for mixing and matching. The little star patches are a nice touch and it certainly is a fun piece to own.
I got this jacket at the 2006 Cubs vs. Astros game. I had to bribe my DD to be able to keep it for myself, but it was worth it. The jacket is sturdy and well made with red embroidery on the back of the jacket and hat that says American Girl. It is an adorable miniature of the real warm-up jackets worn by the team. picasaweb.google.com/mineymae/CubsJacket?feat=directlink

I'm totally with you on emily's accessories. The dog tags should have been metal. They look silly plastic. But her album is darling and I really enjoy that she gets a sweater instead of a hat like so many other girls get. Overall it is a good set and definitley worth getting for your Emily doll. I'm going with a solid "B".

I love my Emily. She looks gorgeous and after about twentysome attempts I managed to get her headband the way I wanted it. I love that she has blue eyes and red hair. Poor Felicity needed a fellow carrottop in the collection. :) I have to admit, though, I was expectig her to look more like the illustrations. But I am satisfied.
