Caroline is a lovely doll.
I hadn't intended to get her, we were using my daughter's Lanie to time travel to Caroline's time, but the Jill's Steals & Deals from Feb. 2015 got me. (Who could resist Caroline and her nightgown for $55?)
I'm very happy to have her though I wouldn't buy her for a child -- those curls are too much!
Caroline's meet dress is pink Pink PINK! My favorite thing about her is her gorgeous eyes. She won't wear her meet outfit much, but many of the outfits in her collection are beautiful and we're happy to have her.

This set is nice to have for Rebecca but I wish there was a school book. The bagel is cute though the other clumped food is "eh". I like the bag and the real little pencil is, well, a real little pencil.

This set gets a solid A from me! It reminds me of the good 'ole days of American Girl. I'd worry about giving the crochet hook to a little girl (it's plastic, afterall, and bendable, so I suspect it would get bent out of shape easily).

Our Windsor Writing Chair is quite old and isn't perfect but it still looks beautiful. Our Felicity prefers to pose next to it rather than sitting because she looks unladylike when she sits. It looks beautiful in Felicity's bedroom with her bed and original clothes press which is matches wonderfully.

I'd give this set a B. The plasticy cake tower is weird. The ring of tarts and fruits is odd. The cake stand is nice and the dishes are pretty. I'm glad I picked this up on cyber Monday for a deal, but I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it.

The Finale Outfit is very cute and my dolls wear it a lot. Here is Lindsey who happened to be wearing it on a visit to an AG store when she decided to try out the doll hanger in the party room.
This outfit was sold at American Girl stores that had theaters when they were running the Circle of Friends show. It is a doll-size version of the outfit the actresses were in the finale number of the show. It includes only the long-sleeve, purple and pink t-shirt with three stars on the front plus AG on the sleeve, and white cropped pants with a star near one hem. It came in a burgundy American Girl Place box with a black American Girl Place hanger.

There are few AG products I dislike, but this is one of them. It is very poorly designed. The sticks don't stay in the holes and it is very easy to knock over. I put it together for this picture (after having to lock my cat in kitty jail to make it possible) but I doubt I'll ever bother to again. My girls never liked it, especially after a few of the poles broke. The fire was always a huge favorite, however.
I've seen the new one at the AG store and it looks much better designed. Hopefully the new poles are also sturdier.
