Shirt- Really cute! i dont get much use out of it though because i dont find the shorts suitible for anything other then gymnastics and all my other shorts that would work are being worn my fern (55)! Its quite thin, but i love the way it looks like something i would wear and the fact that its V-Necked!
Shorts- These are a velvety material, so i would never put them on my girls for an everyday outfit, however McKenna wears these for decency when she's wearing her leotard!
Leotard- The colour scheme makes me want to be sick!! Green, gold and purple?? McKenna, do you have eyes!? I couldnt lay my heart on any other leotard though! this was the one for McKenna! I even, shamefully, find myself liking it.. >_<
Ankle Support- Poor McKenna, always has a broken ankle now i have this! I know this ounds really stupid.. and its embarrasing to say... but on the website i thought this was another leotard! go ahead and laugh! i actually really like it, even though it has orange on it! the blue stripes are so pretty
Shaul- Heres another thing for you to laugh at me about! I cant physically put this on my dolls! i end up putting it on upside down, inside out! you name it, i can do it! theres one way i CANT put it on though.. correctly... i spend 5 minutes trying, then give up! i wish it tied at the front! for some people this might be harder, but that velcro back just doesnt work for me! I dont ever use it.. i'm too easily confused! Am i the only person with this problem? 3:
I will add pictures if i find my camera but ATM i dunno where it is...

I got this with McKennas starter collevtion in june. After being told it was backordered, it was great to go to the store and see it there! I use the bag to hold all my hair accesories, its starting to over flow now, though!
Bag: Verrrrrrryyy good!Everything fits inside nicely. one little complaint, i find the straps are too long!her bag hangs over her but when she wears it, so i ties knots in each strap and now its OK. I managed to put all her accesories AND a pair of flats in the bag, so its really good! i like the size cos u can fit loads in it, but it looks in proportion!
Book report and twisters letter: Had a good old laugh at how these were "made in china". It is printed on the bottom. Okay, this i just me being easily amused but in her books it says the she folder her book report in 3... well... the book report comes folder in 3.. :3 soo cute! didnt think i would be so amused at 2 pieces of paper but McKenna often does her "homework" or gets accepted for the Twisters team!
Card thing: I dont know what this is... is it for her to get into the gymnastics place with or something? anyway, all i use it for is a library card or a credit card.. it normally just sits in a mini doll bag.. i have no use for it!
Money:now... im not american.. but im sure american dollars arent only printed on one side! Not used much, McKenna has her credit card! xD i sometimes use them to display in the guitar case to make it look like they're playing for tips! took me a while to get used to the fact that they were only $1, i kept thinking $5 cos we have £1 coins and £5 notes in england.. i normally use them as £5 notes so McKenna can buy more stuff and so im not confused!
Journal: Soo dissapointed! No pen, how does she write!? Also, i HATE the colour scheme, and mines broken! the velcrop strap thing has split, leaving it looking ugly very dissapointed and would rather it didnt come with the set, then end up with a useless but of crap that McKenna cant even pretend to use!
Fantastig Gymnastics book: Its quite cute.. very basic but looks really cute when McKenna uses it! My friend who used to do gymnastics liked it, though! its just like a real book!
Trailmix: i have NO IDEA what trail mix is! i guess nuts and chocolate raisins??i can squeeze it fairly hard, i dont have the fiesta picnic set yet, but im assuming its going to be the same as the tortilla chips! My McKenna uses this as a snack after gymantics class.
Bottle: VERY CUTEEEE!! I love this! McKenna is often displayed drinking this or it sits on her shelf or bedside table!around the edge is a pattern of hearts, then the word gymnastics etc.. was actually really upset the lid didnt come off, though little kids might loose it! just a shame, poor old McKenna has 2 drink through the lid!
Necklace: Errr.. i lost this bit...... 3: All it was really was a bracelet though! nothing much! i dont think it added anything to the set!
Overall i think some parts are good, but a lot of it seems to be paper! would've loved to see a pen if AG was going to include that stupid notebook! A- from me, angry about the notebook!
I love this! after four hours in the store, the next day i decided i wanted to go and buy them! after a lot of begging, we went back and picked up these, the bow-toe flats and the sweet heart pajamas.
Shirt- Very cute! I like the white/grey colour scheme! The thing that annoys me is the logo thingy in the middle, so i just kid myself that its decoration! If you look at it, there is the pink/purple ribbon then green Ag stars xD
Pants- Hehe.. i like these.. :3 the material is odd but very nice to touch! more green/purple AG stars but they're all subtle! even though my sister hates the colour scheme, i love it! it works perfectly on McKenna.
Slippers- there are good and bad points to these GOOD: Very fluffy! Nice colour! Squishy on bottom!I like the stars! BAD: Big tags (easily solved, i cut them off!) Elastic is TOO LONG! It is so annoying!McKenna goes to bed wearing slippers and wakes up without! i find if i push them further up her feet they stay on slightly better but look weird! I feel they would've been better if the elastic straps were the same fluffy material as the rest of the slippers, and this would've looked better! i guess if i wanted to alter them it would be easy... but im a little scared to do that... knowing my sewing skills..
Overall i give them an A! would've been A+ if the slippers fitted but theyre soft and fluffy and i like wearing them on my toes xD
Ehhh... McKenna.. do you have eyes? Orange and purple.. Orange and purple.. sorry but.. WHY? I dunno, being english but do americans wear orange and purple?? The jacket is... well.. i hate to say it.. ugly! unlined, bad colour scheme and... >_< i dont put it on my dolls, i only use the trousers and shoes. oh well, it was free!
The trousers are okay, i like to pair them with a white t-shirt.. i dont know why! the shoes are ADORABLEEE! Fern (55) likes to wear them when she goes hiking because they have more grip then the hiking boots, but McKenna wears them most! i have a mat thing from ikea which i use for McKenna to do gymnastics on.
Overall for a free outfit its ok. I would prefer to have a t-shirt instead of that.. bleugh.. thing, but oh-well. The trousers and shoes are cute! overall A- for the jacket
i LOVE McKenna. i got her starter collection and i am SO glad i did! it was either starter collection or doll and tent... My sister has emily and they have the same eyes but it doesnt matter! they look nothing alike! he eyes are soo pretty and her caramel hair look.. good enough to eat? can i say that? it makes me hungry though, because of the colour... mmm... anyway, it is SO easy to style! i like doing fishtails on her and her hair looks like new! (i got her in June) I had the choice between bright red lips, or tilted head in the store. because i didnt think the red lips suited Mckenna i went for tilted head and now.. its so cuteeee!! i notice some other people have this problem but my sisters Julie also has it.. maybe bacause of the josefina moul? i dunno..
Of course her unicorn came out ASAP! in the PS room i opend her and immediately took it out! who thought that would look GOOD? Her meet outfit is OK. i can live with it and her nickers are SOOO CUTEEE! Im no gymanst, but im sure gymnastic squads wouldn't have their own nickers?? and leggings?? oh well, i can live!
Overall i love her to bits! I got her ears pierced and it was the icing on the cake for me (i've really got to stop with these food metaphors now!) It suits my ones personality to a T!
ohmygosh! where to start!? this set is too amazing for words! I would add pictures but my webcam is broken and i dont know how... :L
Guitar: the quality of this is unbelievable! it feels like real wood! i feel if it were left on the floor out of its case and someone stood on it it might not survive, but all my dolls do with it is sit holding it or display it in its case under their bed so theres no chance of that happening! its smooth and shiney and well- perfect! i don't own any other AG instruments but my sister has an AG sized trumpet and even though its good, the quality isn't as good as this. One thing which is unrealistic, but my guitar is SO out of tune and untuneable.. i know its not possible to change this, but... well it would've been nice! There is a sort of chocolaty brown colour on the sides and bottom, but its lighter on the top.. like i said, i cant add pictures!
Strap- This is really good! it has its own section in the case and it clips onto the guitar with a buckle-like thingymabob. The flower pattern is lovely, the silver,pink,green and purple really match the brown shade on the guitar.
Case- This is soooo cute! it is leathery on the outside, with a plastic handle which the dolls cant use, and elastic "rucsac straps" on the back so they can carry it! i have never had problems with my dolls falling over when holding this, then again im very good at making dolls stand up! The inside is lined with a beautiful red fuzzy material, i love it! the guitar fits perfectly and the books can fit inside with the guitar aswell, thats what i do with my instruments so i thought McKenna should too! like i mentiond earlier, there is a section thing for the strap to go in to keep us OCD people happy! i dont know if this is realistic or not because i dont know how to play the guitar but.. its cute!
Books- Even though i dont use them much, these are incredibly well made! My friend played jingle bells from one and i think the other one might be a fingering/chord book? i prefer to display my dolls playing pieces, chords are boring! :L
Overall this instrument is adorable! fantastic quality, excellent play value, wouldnt want to step on it but then again, it comes with a case! maybe not for younger children but most of those have bitty baby/twins anyway so i think its okay! It also comes in handy if you're doing a taylor swift music video! and i used it for my art project! could not live without!
this is sooo cute! the shorts arent suitible for winter, so i pair the t-shirt with ferns purple meet pants instead!
T-SHIRT- okay, not the nicest i've ever seen but it suits Fern to a T! she pulls it off purfectly! its a little thin i think, but oh well. the flower is a bit shiney but you can't have it all!
SHORTS- One of my favourite parts of this outfit! they are like denim i think.. anyway! i even think they look cute with my "stand tall" create-a-tee and McKennas meet leggings- shock horror!
SOCKS- my only AG socks apart from julies roller skate ones, and im dissapointed they dont add anything to the outfit and they feel cheap! with mine i can see the white elastic when i pull them up so you can see them under the boots.. i dont tend to bother with these cos they seem pointless and cheap to me.
SHOES- i hate to admit, i think these shoes and the shorts were the only reason i bought this outfit! the quality is soo cute! i wish the soles had a little more grip but oh-well! they look like they have grip! i LOVE the pink/purple colour scheme! it suits Ferns personality perfectly! I could never get rid of them..
I bought my Fern in june, when i want to the NYC store!
HAIR: sooo gorgeous!i love putting it in 2 five-strand-braids.. i wasn't very careful with her hair- she was my 1st doll along with McKenna, but put it in rollers and the curl come straight back! its a bit dry at the ends, but i love her so much its not really a problem.
EYES: Awwwwwhhhh!! her best feature! they are green with brown liney spekkey bits.. dunno how to describe it! Greener with more light, darkey with less- just like mine! I couldnt ask for any better!
FRECILS: Fern wouldnt be right without frecils! she is my me-doll, so she HAD to have frecils, one little complaint- they're symetrical.. eh.. i know for a fact that NO ONE has symetrical frecils! anyway, wouldnt ever let me swap her for another doll!
Quality- as usual, AG have stunned me with remarcible quality! her wig cap isnt great, but the beauty and quality make up for it! mine has lovely rosey lips and cheeks, making her really sweet
