Ok - I went and got mine. It is manufactured in such a way that it is supposed to be loose. It has a loop at the end of the handle that goes around the inside top of the basket.
It has some give!! If it didn't and you gave this to a child it could easily break. Every time a child would put something in the basket it could press upon the handle. If stationary it could pop off - but because it moves slightly it will not.
Try and think of this as a positive and not a negative. These are the little quality extras AG puts in their items that are sometimes overlooked - and many times misunderstood.
I have No. 25 - Sophia - and I think she is a very pretty doll. I think she looks French. When I first got my doll they had a traveling outfit that had a corsage on it and I just pictured her by the Eiffel Tower.
It was the Sightseeing Outfit from 2005.

Ok - I personally feel this should have been divided in two. That way the cost would not have seemed so bad - but you still would have paid the $58 - and now with the code you can get it for $48!!
The apron and hat should have been offered together and they could have sold for $24. The Santa Hat is Velvet and very lovely and the apron is a heavy fabric with velvet and fur accents.
That leaves us with $34 to account for - The gingerbread house is nice and heavy and it has a separate cake stand. Together they would go for about $18 - now we are down to $16. There is an adorable box of candy canes and that would be at least $5. So we are left with $11 to cover 3 containers of sprinkles, the icing bag, a plate of nonpareils and a bowl of gum drops. I'm sure you would agree that all that wold be worth $11.
There is so much in this accessory set and thus the price. But if you can get $10 off - it's great.
I wish it was separate for another reason. I would so totally buy the ginger bread house for Samantha!!
Well, we asked for more accessories - and you really have them in this set!! I love it - and with the $10 code I love it even more.
One of my favorite MyAGs has this outfit on and she is right next to my bed - even without the mini Coconut (who is to die for cute) - I think the set is worth it. I love the slippers and the headband - the pjs are so nice and then to top the whole thing off you have mini-Coconut.
I think the set has more pieces than usual. Usually we would get the pjs, slippers, and headband in one set and it would sell for around $24. The current pjs for MyAG in the catalog are $24. So, you are paying about $12 more for the mini-Coconut. A little pricey - but the full sized Coconut is $20.
In conclusion - it's a little pricey - but it is a whole lotta cute (plus not all your friends will have this set as it is only sold in the stores. Of course you can call the store and order it - which is what I did. I saw it on one of the boards and fell in love with it).
Good luck with your decision - but if you like pjs and you like Coconut - you will love this set.
