My mom just received a #3 with this outfit (red vinyl jumper, black turtleneck, tights & boots). She also received the accessories (hat, scrunchie, lunchbox purse, library card and the 3 dollar bills). Instead of the notebook necklace mom received the old AG necklace.
When we purchased the doll, we intended to resell the outfit. However; it is soooo much cuter in person that we decided to keep it! The attention to detail is just amazing and we second the other reviews here and give it an A+. No picture can truely do justice to this outfit, IMO.
My DH bought Kaya for me right after she came out. I have changed my Kaya several times since then and the ties on the moccasins are not as fragile as they look. I have changed her from her Meet to her other outfits several times and I have had no problems! Also, if you pay attention to how the moccasins are tied when you take them off, it's not that hard to retie them. The little tab on the back helps pull them off and I have had no trouble putting them back on.
I will say I am an adult collector and a child would need help if they were younger than nine or ten I think.
My eldest daughter saved half of the money needed to purchase Kirsten in 1990, she received her for Christmas that year (her dad & I supplied the other half) when she was 10. I still have her as a display doll and she is in like new condition. She was played with for about four or five years. Kirsten has the tan body and ash blonde hair. She has never developed silver eye or any other problems. The only thing that I did was wash her hair. The quality of these dolls is just amazing! I'd post a picture but I don't know how. (I'll have to go to Tech Talk when I have time.)
I just received my Apres Ski outfit in the mail today from ebay. My 24 (Lauren) that my daugters gave me for Christmas is wearing it. I think there must be a difference in the sweaters because it fits her fine, a little baggy like you would expect but not overly so.
I think the sweater and the leggings will exchange well with other outfits because of their colors - so basic. The socks are adorable! Overall I would rate this outfit an A+ partially because of it's versitility.
I have had Steps High since Jan. 2003 and so far she has held up very well. I guess I'm too much of a purist though because NA ponies DID NOT WEAR SHOES!!!!! If you notice they made Steps High over the exact same mold as the other PC/AG horses including the shoes. If they had left off this little bit of plastic, Steps High would be truely unique.
Still, I love her!! I would give her an A- for including shoes.
This is a lovely addition to Kaya's outfits. I find it is very easy to put on and I don't have any trouble getting the cape or moccasins tied. The only problem I have is the red strings will bleed onto the dress. For this reason, I give this set a B+
