Despite the high price I really like mine. It is just great for holding clothes and accessories for my modern AG dolls. Dresses and coats are hung on the top rod and pants. tops and skirts are hung on the botom rod. The two fabric covered boxes hold lots of boots,, hats and odd items. The pockets hold many pairs of shoes. My favorite storage solution is what you can put on the ribbon board. Sunglasses, ponytail holders, jewelry, scarves, etc. It looks very organized like a california closet system for AG dolls. LOL After all that there is plenty of space for a couple dolls or more stuff. The best part is that there is a nice flat space on top of the cabinet to set up a nice scene with a couple of dolls and even a table and chairs set. Close the whole thing up and it looks clean, simple and pretty. I have doll trunks but I could not be without this thing.

I first saw this doll online and I thought she looked too similar to #23 which I have so I passed until I saw her at the store. She was absolutely stunning! The contrast of her hair and skin makes her features pop. Her rosy cheeks and coral pink tinge of her lips are very pronounced on this doll. Her hazel eyes "change" depending on the lighting from green, to greyish to hazel. Her freckles make her look more real. Although she has a classic mold like so many of the other dolls #55 looks sweeter and more vulnerable. Her hair is also a striking feature. It is a nice length to play with and has the right amout of curls to add body and texture. To me this doll is "perfect" in every way. I named my doll Brooke and she is exquisite!
I have Molly's chifforobe. I am crazy with a capital "C" about Kit and Molly's era so I love everything that makes up their collections. Having said that, although the chiffarobe looks adorable amongst Molly's things I think it lacks in the storage department. It might help to extend the hanging rod all the way across the unit. The drawer is wide but very shallow and does not hold much at all. The chiffarobe is better designed than Felicity's clothes press but does not hold as much as Julie's Locker and Kit's trunk. I swear the issue of storing AG stuff has always been a pain in the rear for me. I am forever trying to find storage solutions.

Here is a photo. I owned Felicity's carriage and recently sold it. The other day I decided to watch a video I made with the carriage and I just cried because I missed it so much. IMO I think the carriage is THE most beautiful item AG ever made. I started a thread with my video of the carriage but just in case you haven't seen it here it is. When the second song starts you can see the carriage in the forest. It is soooo enchanting!

I loooove this outfit and it is my favorite outfit of Molly's and possibly my favorite outfit that AG has ever made. It is the quintessential dress for dolls, simple and sweet. The color brings out the blue of Molly's eyes as well as the rich chestnut brown of her hair. The style is so so pretty and the cut of the dress is very flattering on her. The material feels and looks like linen which has a great drape and quality to it. The hat is adorable and finishes off the outfit. With the brownie camera around her neck and holding the route 66 banner Molly is the picture of sweetness that transports you back in time.

Molly is my favorite AG historical along with Kit and Ruthie. I love Molly's era along with her story. Her wardrobe, accessories and furnishings are just adorable. I am absolutely taken by this doll and the era she represents! I recently made a video of my Molly and her friends, their accessories and furnishings set in a dollhouse that you have to see to believe! Travel back to the "30's and "40's by watching my video. The link is provided below. It is in 3 parts with the dolls coming in during the second song. I hope you enjoy watching it!

The Lu'au set is my favorite outfit for Kanani. Just one look and you feel like you are on the beach in Hawaii at sunset. I have the first version with the anklets. If I had one complaint it would be the lei being too short. I made a stop motion video of Kanani doing the Hula. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun. Take a look at my link and you will see just how gorgeous the Lu'au set is!
