I am not wild about the hat for this outfit, but I like the rest of the parts. I agree with the somewhat boring, but still a nice spring dress. My favorite parts are the over the shoulder purse and the pearls.

Since there are no pictures of this outfit, I thought I would add some!
The snowpants especially are really great, and could be used with lots of other things. The 2 negatives, the color is a little faded looking. I don't know if you can tell since I used color enhancement on the pictures, but the whole outfit is just a little faded. Also the gloves will not stay on at all, I think they would have been much better made out of the soft fleece material that the hat is made from. The snowboard itself works really well though, and the doll stands up very easily. If we ever get snow here, I will take one more picture! Grade A- due to fade and gloves, but really a very nice outfit, ready for a lot of play!
Here's a better picture of 2000 Kit taken today in Autumn sunlight. When I see other pictures, I think there is a little difference. Anyone know how to restore the freckles a little and still have them look natural?
This is one outfit that has really stood the test of time! Every piece of it is cute, the shirt, the shorts, the windbreaker, and the boots. The pieces are well made, and look great on almost every doll. The colors are still bright after years of play. A+ for the hiking outfit!
You do have to be more careful of the older sled since it is made of wood. Ours went through hours of girl/doll/dog play however, and is still going strong. It is one of the pieces that AG made that I think has heirloom quality in addition to play quality. If you don't mind being patient, there seem to be plenty of them available on the secondary market. I saw a dog/sled combo this summer for $24.99 that no one bid on! Be sure to get the dog with a harness so you can hook him up to the sled! (The paw protectors are really nice too!)

I purchased this set especially for the camera, since I am trying to get a camera for each of our dolls. Barksee is very cute, and the tote is nice. Pretty colors, and very useful. The camera however, was REALLY disappointing. It is very small, and just a tiny piece of plastic. To compare, I put it beside Kailey's awesome underwater camera, and Kit's delicate, but nice camera. Even Jess's butterfuly camera looks large and luxurious compared to the one in Kanani's accessory set! So because of camera, grade B-.
