I really like this outfit for Josefina. I was surprised to learn the dress was cotton when I received because in pictures it always looked more shiny to me, but I love that its cotton. The pantalettes, socks and shoes that come with it are a great addition, I use the shoes with other Josefina outfits as well. The best part of this set is the mantilla that comes with it, it looks so beautiful on Josefina! <b>A</b>

Blah, I didn't like this set. The blanket, as others have said, was way too scratchy and the fake fur felt weird to me... it felt synthetic. It didn't seem like Josefina would be comfortable on either, so I returned it. I give the whole set a <b>D</b>.

I just received Nina today, yay sale prices! Anyway, I don't know why I waited so long to buy her for my Josefina, she's so cute. Her little mantilla, earrings and dress are adorable. I sort of wish the doll came in an outfit that's a little more seasonally neutral, but since that's the way its written in the story I suppose it makes sense. I give her an <b>A-</b> overall.

I LOVE these party treats. I wasn't planning on getting them at all, but when I saw them in person I knew I had to have them. I'm a sucker for miniature food. My favorite pieces are probably the little lemonade picture (with the tiny lemons floating on top!), the little sandwiches which look very realistic (meat, lettuce, mayo and tomato on wheat it looks like) and the cake of course. The dishes are cute also though, as are the watermelon slices. I don't really care either way about the box with the table talkers or whatever. Overall, adorable set, I give it an A!

I got Gwen at AGPC on 1/2. Actually, she was a birthday present from my sister who knew I wanted her and picked her out for me while were there. I think Gwen is adorable and I love her clothes. Yes, she is pretty much the same doll as #12, but I think mine has a special-ness to her, I'm not sure why lol. She has pretty coral colored lips and I love her sundress and sandals.

I don't even have a Kaya, but I ordered her foods set because I'm a big fan of miniature foods and because its so cute. I figure I can use it for other girls too in various ways/scenarios. Anyway, its adorable, I just love the little basket especially and all the foods. A+++ from me!

I just got this yesterday, and its adorable. The fabric is very soft and summery, definitely lighter than the scooter outfit and the colors look great on Kit. The shoes are adorable also, although I think they would have been better with snap closures than velcro, still very cute. The barrette however, sucks. Its cheap plastic and way too long for Kit's short hair. It falls out very easily and I don't like it. The meet barrette works much better. Overall, an A for the outfit, with an A+ for the dress, A- for the shoes and a C- for the barrette.

*Julie wears this dress in the book Julie and the Eagles* (Dress Retired December 2014)
Okay, so Julie's birthday dress came today! Yay! It is a very cute dress... I love the detail of the floral design on the front of the dress, and the cut and way it sits on Julie. The necklace is also very cute and very 70's- it was a little hard to get on at first because its a choker, but once it was one there's a little spare room so its not super-tight on her. The hat is okay, its cute enough I guess, nothing special. The fake blue flower is kind of weird. The only other real problem I have with it (besides the meh hat) is that its kind of see-through (in that if Julie's wearing her purple undies they kind of show through). Still, I give it an A- over all. I recommend it, it looks veyr nice on Julie.

I agree that this set is adorable. I don't have a problem with the static-y sound at all, it sounds great on mine and I love everything about it, especially the tiny records. It'd be awesome if they made more records though! An A+ from me! And since we need them, here are some pictures of this cute set: (mod edit to remove broken images)

I finally got this set with a record player that actually works & I LOVE it, especially the song by Earth, Wind, & Fire. When I put that song on I am there, 1974. I really hope they offer more records later. I want Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing by Stevie Wonder, Help Me by Joni Mitchell, & The Bitch Is Back by Elton John. I won't hold my breath.
HAHA, yeah I really hope they come out with more records too... anything by the Beatles or Elton John would be awesome. I wouldn't hold me breath on "THe Bitch is Back" either, LOL, but maybe "Crocodile Rock" would work.

This set is so cute! I just got it today at AGPC for my recently accquired Julie and it looks adorable on her. The fabric is a very soft cotton and the pajamas are roomy and seem like they would be very comfortable to sleep in. The pattern on the edges of the neckline and sleeve is really cute also. The PJ's look very 70s, like something Cindy Brady would have worn. The slippers are very nice also, soft and fuzzy! They get an A+ from me!

Mini-Julie is so cute! I never had a mini doll before, but Julie is a great first one to have. Her hair is soft and silky just like the big Julie (which I don't have but my sister does) and her little clothes are adorable. She's even got the little purple underwear (but they don't have a rainbow on them). Her sandals are little flimsy, but if you leave the plastic bands on them they just stay on just fine.

So, I was at AGPC today and along with some other things, I bought Mia's PJs for Amy (my #4). Overall, I really like them... the colors are a very nice purple, nice change from the usual pink shade that pajamas seem to be lately and the flower designs on the top and the pants are really cute. I am a little bothered by the fact that the seams are unfinished, but I guess that's the style of it. They fit Amy very well and I think the look nice on her. The slippers that come with it are pretty cheap- just purple cloth slippers (think the fabric of the ballet slippers in the 2 in 1 set) and the hairbands are a nice extra. For $22, its not a bad set at all. I give the pajamas a solid A and the entire set an A- (since the slippers are kind of lame and all). *Mod edit to remove dead image link*

I'm another big fan of this outfit! It was one of the more classic outfits AG came out with in 99', and I like it for that reason. Even now,9 years later, it still looks stylish (except maybe the necklace which is so typically late 90's). The sweater is adorable and well made, as is the skirt, and I love the thick socks and chunky loafers. The shirt underneath is okay, but I agree buttons would worked better. The necklace is very cute also, although mine tarnished a little bit. I still give the entire outfit an A.

I give this flute a B. The flute does not look that realistic, it is missing buttons and things, and does not make a sound. The book is cute, has real music and is nice. I give the book and the fingering chart an A. The case I give an A-, it has a nice padding but no handle and does not look that realistic. Good quality. The stand is an A+ because it is fully adjustable and can go up and down easily. All in all, the set gets an B. OH, and Kelsea wants me to mention that it's fun performing but she hates practicing. But that's just her.
Well, many professional-grade flutes come in cases that do not have handles, usually we carry them in a soft bag or soft flute case, but I agree that it is missing a few keys. I got a miniture flute at a gift shop at Lincoln Center that looks exactly the same.

I got this set off E-Bay and it is so adorable! I'm surprised I haven't heard/seen more about it. The tin and basket are so cute and perfect for holding cookies- the plastic ones that are included or your own tiny ones you make with the cutters and rolling pin! (I did use them to make tiny cookies and it worked very well!) Awesome set, A+!

I got this set for Amy at AGPC, and I think its very cute. The violin and bow, though plastic, seem to not have had any problems yet, and the bridge on my violin seems very secure, so they may have fixed that problem. The rosin is adorable, although it doesn't come out of its wrapper. The case is cute and realistic looking, but it doesn't open very far which is disappointing because its hard to get the violin out. The black stand is adorable, it looks exactly like the stands we used for band/orchestra in high school and the little music books are so cute. The only other problem is that i find the stand a pain to put together and adjust. I give the set an A-for the case and stand problems, but over all an adorable set.

I absolutely LOVE this bedding set. I got it secondhand (but in like new condition), so I got everything except the curtain and stickers, but it fits very well on the bed I'm using it for (the IKEA wooden doll bed) and I love that it comes with a sheet and pillowcase as well. A+!
Post by MangoTikiWiki on Jan 18, 2008 22:58:21 GMT -5
Amy has this bag and uses ALLL the time. When its not in use, it hangs from the end of her wooden bed, on the post. It goes great with most of her outfits, including her AGPC tee and jeans. Its a really cute bag and holds a few small items. A from me as welL!

This outfit is adorable... mine came without the headband, but has everything else. Its very classic mid-late 90's, I had a shirt just like the one that goes under the jumper myself around that time! The only thing with the shirt is that it has a split in the back, so it would look akward worn alone, but under the jumper it looks great. The jumper is made of a thick wool material and is very durable and the tights and shoes are just cute. The outfit gets an A from me! *Mod edit to remove dead image link*

I just got this outfit yesterday and it is adorable! Its made of a very soft sateen (feels like super soft cotton). It fits on my doll very well and the colors really seem to compliment my doll's black hair. The pattern is soft white flowers on a lilac fabric, simple yet pretty look for spring.
It comes with a necklace with a little purple stone on it, cute but not necessarily necessary to the outfit, purple sandals with kitten heels which are very cute, a little lilac purse which is adorable and two barretts with purple stones- look cute but one of mine was very tight and hard to put in her hair.
It also comes with a book "Be Your Best", a guide to manners at special events for girls. I never really pay much attention to the little books, but if you have a daughter that age it's cute and probably a good resource.
Overall the outfit looks terrific though and I give it an A (would be an A+ if not for the tight barretts).

I got a NIB Isabel from my sister for my birthday. She's a beautiful doll. Even the box is beautiful! Isabel has brown hair which is covered by a gold hair net, a crimson velvet gown with a white stiff petticoat underneath, beige socks and black shoes. Her gown is trimmed with lave on the collar, sleeves and bodice. She also comes with earrings, a necklace and a waist girdle which holds her keys, mirror and pomander. These dolls are very nicely made and the stand well in the doll stand that comes with them. Reading Isabel's story gave my Isabel even more personality, and the book contains a "looking back" section which describes the historical significance of her outfit and accessories. I give Isabel an A+. *Mod edit to remove dead image links*

*Molly wears this sweater in the movie Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front* (price increase from $24 to $28 January, 2012)
I was surprised to see no review up for this yet! Anyway, this is a really cute outfit. The red skirt and matching spankies are really cute and well-made. They are made of a thick flannel/felt material with a smoother underside. The skirt closes with velcro and the spankies are just pull ons with elastic. The jacket is made of a more fleecy type matierla with embroidered snowflakes and closes with buttons. The buttons are actually not difficult to open and close, a rarity for AG buttons! I really like this set, which I bought for my Emily and she looks just adorable in it. I give it a solid A.

I lovelovelove the colors of this swimsuit on my Beatrice! Only, it was awfully difficult to get it ON. Is it supposed to be really tight? I love that the cap is made out of swimsuit-material, though. Very nice detail, that was.
Yeah I had the same problem! I tried to put it on my Kit and I could barely get it over her shoulders and it doesn't close right in the back... :/. I love the sandals, the parasol and the sunglasses a lot though! I am really disappointed that the suit doesn't really fit my Kit though. She's not even a PM and isn't that chunky!

Overall, this is a very cute and well made outfit. The tiny overalls are adorable and sturdy and I love the little sugar bag patch on them- so realistic! The shirt is very cute and well made as well, and the hat is a nice touch. I don't like it as much as some of Kit's other outfits, some of her dresses, because I don't think she would really be able to wear it much other than for the purpose it was used for in the story (it wouldn't really be accepted as everyday wear) but all in all very cute, and one of the few outfits that's more of a "cold weather outfit" of hers. I give the overalls an A-.

I just got the night table and its beautiful. I love the colors, the design and especially the two drawers which are great for storing things! I agree, it does look fantastic next to Kit's bed as well. A++ from me!
