This smells DELICIOUS! I got the small bottle and it seems to last forever. I use it in my bathroom if I need to cover up from fragrance and squirt a little bit on myself if I'm going formal. A+++++++++++
I love this outfit! The shirt is too cute, (love the lettuce edging) and and the jacket/pants are also super divine.
The only downside about this outfit is that they skimped a bit on the shirt and pants length. If the pants are down to where they should be, and if your doll doesn't have the jacket on, you can see her back. And if the pants aren't where they should be on the doll (which is rather low), they look like cropped pants. I think the shoes/socks are the best part of the outfit.

Minuk is a very good quality GOML doll. Her costume is soft fur, but ther are a few small parts, so you shouldn't let any young children play with them.
She has a sweet face, with long black braids and large red, white and blue beaded earrings.
Her book is touching and sweet, but it has a couple very tough spots that children who are affected by dramatizing or young children probably should not read. I could tell that the author, Kirkpatrick Hill, did her research on 1890 Yup'iks, because her descriptions of their customs were very vivid and clear.
I sold my Bitty Twins (the worst mistake I've ever made, believe me. I love the first edition BT's so much more than the second edition BT's because I absolutely HATE baby dolls with long-er hair, like the second edition Girls.
I also don't like it that the focus has switched more from Boy and Girl to Girl and Girl. You notice that there are two coordinating Girl and Girl outfits, one Boy and Boy and one Boy and Girl, besides their 'Meet' outfits. I hate that.

I have to agree with FairyFanatic with the tights...they got pulled A LOT when I was playing with them. Don't tell DPS, but the poor dear had to not wear her diapoo when she wore the tights because the velcro snagged the tights. I probably'll give it an A too...because except for the tights, I love the outfit.

I remember as a little girl fussing about the fact that this outfit didn't come with pants. I'm still a little ticked about that factor...$24 (which is the going AG rate right now for outfits WITH pants) for a coat, scarf and hat (plus the normal activity and outfit for Bitty Bear).
This is a very sweet outfit, but I really don't think it is worth the originial AG price. The little car is very cute, but the wheel broke off and got lost a while ago, so it really doesn't work anymore. But it was cute while it lasted! The book is also very entertaining.

This is my favorite of all of the BB Swimsuit sets. It's not really a swimsuit type...but looks more babyish than the other, newer ones. The hat fits perfectly, and the shovel and pail are any little baby's dream. The Bitty Bear hat keeps getting lost then found again. Currently it's lost.
The book is a sweet little coloring book. Very cute. It got lost a long time ago though. (Yeah, lots of my BB stuff got lost)

I really honestly do like this outfit. The boots are very sweet and well-made. The jacket and hat are both made of good-quality yellow vinyl and the purple plaid is the perfect accent. I lost the Bitty Bear hat a LONGGG time ago. I got this when I was like 5 or 6 years old, so you can bet that hat didn't stay around very long.
The duck toy...I don't know if it's just age or what but the duck toy does not quack unless you smack it several times and wind the key until you think that the wires would break. The book is very cute...and entertains my Bitty Baby to no end.

This BB is one of the sweetest ones. Although I agree with Sprout's Mom...her head does scratch very easily. About three-four years ago, I sent her in for a head replacement and about a week after, her head was all scratched up again. I love the BB face mold, her little mouth looks so sweet!
