I adore this doll! The Jess mold is so sweet, and call me weird, but I actually like her thin hair It is so light and silky and has a lovely wave to it. I will say that if I were to change it at all, I'd make the shortest layers a little longer, because the longest part is almost twice as long as the shortest parts, but it is still a cute look. I paid close attention in picking mine out, and she had the best eyes out of the 5 that they had out in the store. Some of them were super wonky, so I'd recommend picking her out in person if you can. I give #30 an A- for the eye issues (but my Meryl gets a "perfect 10" from me)

I wasn't planning on getting this set, but when I saw it in the store, I decided the hat was too adorable to leave behind for that price. I also wanted to mention that it was advertised in Natick as "$14 with any purchase, not just a $50 purchase, which I thought was interesting!
Here is my new #30 wearing the tee while eating lunch with Clarisse!

The quality of this set is amazing! I was so surprised at how realistic it is. It hangs perfectly on the doll so she can really look like she's playing it. The detail is great and even the case is fantastic! A+
I love the velvet-y inside and the little compartment just like a real case!
The straps on the back were a great idea since it is much too heavy for an elastic to attach the handle to a doll's hand

A cello isn't really an ideal instrument for a doll with no elbows, but it is so cute! The case is a little plastic-y for my taste, but overall the quality isn't too bad. I do like that it has elastic straps on the back of the case so the doll can carry it. It is a bit tricky to get a doll a good sitting position to stay and hold the instrument, but it's still very fun! My main complaint is that the peg that you pull out of the bottom to get it at the right height doesn't stay, it often just falls back in when the weight of the instrument is on it. I give it an A-

I got this set for my modern girls and I love it! I think it's very versatile and I am also pleased that it is a real scarf with no velcro. The materials are nice, they don't feel like cheap acrylic stuff. I give it an A+

I think Chrissa is a lovely doll, even more beautiful in person! Her hair has a nice highlight to it, with the ends slightly lighter than the top, which looks very natural. I wouldn't say it is thick, but not thin either, probably just about right for someone with straight short-ish hair.
I think meet her outfit is really cute, and definitely age-appropriate.
The shoes are personally not what I would pair with this dress, but they are fun!

The snowboard gear is so fun and has great playability! It's super easy to get the doll's feet in and out of the board but she stays in it and standing pretty well.
The helmet is cute with a little clasp under the chin and the goggles velcro in the back. The only slightly annoying thing is that if you want the doll to wear the goggles over her eyes with the helmet on, the goggles have to go under the helmet, so you have to take the helmet off and put the goggles on top if you want them off her eyes and on the helmet (like in the picture), but that is a minor detail.

This is such a realistic outfit, I could totally see a snowboarder wearing it and the materials used are perfect! I also like that it isn't too matchy-matchy. The pants are snug, but I was able to get them on Mia okay, though I'm not sure how they would work on a chunkier PM doll.
The hat is really cute and super soft
(note that the goggles come with the snowboard gear)

This a really fun set with great playability! The gear includes: Boots Skis Poles Lift Ticket
I bought mine second-hand, so I don't have the lift ticket, but the other items are great! The boots are a bit tricky to get on, but not too bad, and they buckle like real ski boots. They don't seem particularly sturdy, but they work. I was skeptical about how the doll would stand in the skis, but I have had no problem getting her to stand at all!
The poles have a flexible plastic handle that allows the doll to grip the poles very easily
I give it an A!

I love this set! I absolutely adore the hat, it looks so lovely on Marie-Grace. The fan is a little hard for her to hold, but is still very nice. I love that the locket actually opens too, but I agree that the chain is quite short and tricky to get on. I give the set an A!

Rebecca is one of the most beautiful AG dolls hands down. She looks great in everything and I just adore her curls! Her wig is a bit thin, but the curls have so much volume, you definitely can't tell by looking at her. Her meet dress seemed a little awkward at first with the drop waist, but with a little adjusting, it looks really cute! I give her an A+!

I think these glasses are very cute! Lalaine (#8) used to wear the round silver glasses, but they looked very out of style, so I updated her a little with the rectangle glasses and they are great! I didn't really have trouble getting them to sit straight. I like the color with her red hair too!
