I agree Jo! This is a very cute set! I got mine from an HB member a while back and it's just wonderful. But to be honest, I have no clue how to get the towel tied on there securely. I think I'll just have to meddle around with it a bit. I'm with you though, I love the sunscreen! That is definitely one of my favorite parts of the set. I love the sunglasses as well because of the reflective lenses. This set gets an A+, from me.

A friend purchased the 3-in-1 Bed for me at the MCM sale and I love it! I think it's very neat how there is a vanity on one side, and a closet on the other. It is also nice that there is also a drawer underneath the bed for extra storage. I really like how there are lights on this set, which gives it that extra little touch. Because this item is so big, you can store several things on top as well.
The only drawbacks that I have to this set is of course it's size and especially the weight. This puppy is a pain to try and carry! I understand it is not meant to hold an excessive amount of outfits in the closet, but I can see that for someone who doesn't have any other storage space this to be insufficient. I can't complain though, I got this piece for a great price thanks to my friend. I give the 3-in-1 bed an A!

I will say that I'm really glad that I got the cabana, but I must agree that this is not the most sturdy thing in the whole world. I really like the colors used for this piece, it just has such a summery feel to it! My only problem with this set is of course the poles. The darn thing just won't stay up if it's moved too much. All-in-all, it's a great piece and I give it a B+.

The price on this set was great, but I'm going to have to agree! The top is too tight, and the bottom sits too low. I bought the set because I wanted it another bikini for my girls and I will have to agree that this one just does not fit properly. I give this one a B.

I got the original set with the red and white chucks as well. Recently I ordered #26 from my PS at AGPC, and I asked for the '06 set as well. However, I did not recieve the set with the pink chucks with rhinestones on them. The set had pink chucks, but they were like the original set with stars, only instead of being red and white, they were pink and white. I was a bit surprised to recieve this set, because I assumed I would be getting the ones like Johanna has. I give this set an A-, simply because I hate fighting with the belt and trying to get it through the loops of AGP jeans!

I got this set from AGPC a little over a year ago and I thinks it's a wonderful set. When I came home from AGPC, I put it on one of my dolls immediately and thought it was wonderful. I think all of the pieces in the set are just wonderful, but from what I can remember, the shoes were a bit difficult to get on. I love this set because of the color coordination between the dress, the shoes and the crown. I just love the red tap shoes! I sort of consider this outfit to be Marisol's, since she is the dancing girl in this house, but she loves to share with her sisters. I give this outfit an A+.

I have Jess' accessories I think they are just adorable! They are by far my favorite meet accessories of the LE gals because they come with so many neat things. I really love the water bottle, the letters, the map, and of course that cute Toshi! I really love the bag that is included with the accessories as well. And I have to agree with Sarah about the camera though. This piece definitely seems pointless. It does nothing whatsoever and if someone didn't know it was supposed to be a camera, they would just think it's a necklace or something. I must admit I really don't use Jess' meet accessories all that much, but that's simply because they haven't been of use with her outfits I've had her in so far. This is definitely a must have and a great accessory.

I really like my Jess doll, and I have had no problems with her. However, I think AG has definitely had some quality control issues with this doll. I love her hair color and part, but I can see how some people are frustrated. The only thing that I have noticed about my Jess is her eyes are uneven. But I think that this is just something with the face mold and every Jess basically has this problem. I've also noticed that my Jess has a bigger upper body than my other dolls. Asides from those minor problems, I think that Jess is great. I really love her pajamas, 2-in-1 kayaking outfit, meet outfit, and accessories. I think the tree is okay, I just don't like how she lays in it and how the speaker is on the bottom of the tree. I think my least favorite part though is the kayak. This part of the collection seems like a bit much (as does the scooter), I have yet to use it and I only blew it up to see if it had any holes. I must say though, I really do like the scooter. Although the scooter seems a bit impractical for a ten-year-old, this piece is very cute! My only problem with this piece was the cost! That was far too much for the scooter. Overall, I really like Jess and her collection. I would recommend to anyone that doesn't have her yet, get her before she's gone! You'll love her!

I really love this set! My favorites parts of this set would have to be the shorts, the tankini, and the kayaking shoes. I really love the color combinations! The part of the set I'm really not that fond of would have to be the rashguard. Overall, I do not like the look of this piece, but most of all I do not like how easily it can be snagged if the velcro is not lined up properly. I just adore the kayaking shoes not only for their color combination, but also for their cute soles. The sunglasses and sunscreen stick were a perfect way to top off this set! I give this set and A and not an A+ simply because of how easily the rashguard snags. I highly recommend getting this set before it is too late.
As for the Kayaking set, I really don't have much to say about this. I blew the kayak up just to see if it was okay, but asides from that, I have yet to use it because of lack of space and the fear of my cats destroying it with their claws. I can definitely say that this is my least favorite part of Jess' collection.

I agree Colette. This is my biggest problem with Jess' Palm Tree the length of the string and ridiculous Jess looks when she's resting in the chair. It just seems flawed since it's supposed to be where she sleeps, yet it does not recline enough and it doesn't allow her to sit up straight so basically she's in a very foolish position. I'm also not too impressed by the sounds because they are sort of muffled since they are one the bottom of the tree. This may be because I have carpeting and that muffles the sound a bit. This is a very cute piece, however I give it a B.

When I first saw this piece, I thought it seemed a bit foolish. But, I wanted to get Jess' whole collection so I asked for this as a birthday present from my parents. I have to say that asides from the cost, the scooter is great! The quality of the scooter is not as cheap as it appears online. I love the sounds and how the light on the scooter works as well. I also liked the basket on the back. This is a great display piece for adults, and I think it would be perfect for hours of play for children. Although the pictures makes the piece seem as though it would take up a lot of space, it is actually not that bad at all. I give Jess' scooter an A+!

I love Jess' pj set! I'm going to have to agree with you Jo, the elastic on the backs of the slippers seems so impractical! Although I realize what they were trying to accomplish, they just push her toes too far out of the slipper. The color and patterns on the pj's are just wonderful. I love the style of the tank top and the capri bottoms. I give this set an A-, simply because of the slippers.

Of the LE dolls so far, Marisol is my favorite. I never thought I would collect an LE doll, but the second I saw Marisol, I fell in love with her. Marisol has the most amazing hair and skintone. Asides from my Maia (#21), she is probably one of my favorite dolls. There is just something about this doll that I adore so much. I have her whole collection, but the things I like least are the stage and the jazz outfit. The jazz outfit is okay, but I just love the other outfits in this collection so much more. I am so glad to have Marisol, and for anyone else thinking of getting despite ebay costs, get her! You will not regret it!

I agree that the color combinations used for this outfit are not exactly the best, but I have to say that I just adore this outfit! I definitely agree with Colette about the tights, but asides from that I really like this outfit for some reason. I adore the toe shoes, the leotard, the tutu, and the choker. I haven't had the ballet outfit on one of my dolls for quite some time, but I agree that there should have been a least and extra snap to hold the tutu on a bit better. Although I have the stage, I think it's a bit lame that the tiara does not come with this set. All in all I definitely give this set and A+! I was just too wonderful to let it pass up!
Post by parklife268 on Nov 25, 2006 20:06:16 GMT -5
I love this outfit too. I was so happy that they came out with a tap outfit besides the AGP tap outfit (which is very cute as well). I really love the color combinations that are used for this outfit. I like that the skirt has some weight to it and the cute little bowtie and tap shoes. My only problem with this outfit would have to be the velcro used on the leotard. You have to be so careful when you put the leotard on afterwards because the tights snag very easily on them. Overall, I give this outfit and A-, simply because of the snagging caused by the leotard's velcro.

I think this is a pretty cute set. My favorite part of Marisol's meet accessories would have to be the cell phone, followed by Rascal. I really love Marisol's ankle wrap as well, but I do not like how easily it snags. I think that the bandages are neat, but I do not plan to use them because I don't think the stickiness would last too long if I did. I also have yet to use the earrings. When comparing the water bottle of Marisol and Jess, Jess' is by far the best. I do have to agree that Rascal is not at the accurate scale size and could be just a bit larger, but not too much more. I do like the dance bag that comes with the set. I give Marisol's Meet Accessories an A-, due to some of the pieces in the set.

When I saw this outfit, I knew I just had to have it. When I orginally got Marisol, I got her meet accessories and Practice outfit as well. I just love this outfit because it was so realistic as to what ballet dancers practice in. I was in ballet when I was younger, but I never got wear anything as cute as this when I practiced! Asides from the skirt being a bit wrinkled, I adore the leotard, the footless leggings, the legwarmers, and the ballet flats. This is definitely one of my favorite outfits for Marisol, hands down.

I think this item is cute, but it's definitely not one of my favorite LE accessories. Although visually I think it is quite nice, I really don't get much use out it, except for displaying with the Seaside Cabana. I really like how the set comes with lip balm disguised as board wax. I really like the detail of the boogie board, but asides from that, it's a pretty so-so piece . I give it a B+.
Post by parklife268 on Nov 3, 2006 11:03:33 GMT -5
I love Kailey's wetsuit and bikini! I got some great use out of these pieces this past summer when I used them in a display for my dolls. This is a great set, it's just a shame that it goes for so much no ebay!

I adore my Lindsey! When she was first introduced, I think I was a bit annoyed about the whole LE thing because I knew that would be just one more thing to collect. I did almost get her because she was an LE, but I decided on getting Kit instead. I love my Kit but I am kicking myself for not getting Lindsey when she was available. I told myself I would never get her due to cost, but I just couldn't stop thinking about her. I got a pretty decent price for her, but I was told she was in hardly played with condition. I wasn't too surprised when she arrived and she wasn't in hardly played with condition as was claimed and her hair was fried. But, I had prepared myself on getting a new head and sent her in. Once I got her back I fell in love. I am kicking myself though because when I got her back I thought her eye was loose and I sent her in for them to replace the head free of charge. I totally regret that because there was just something about the first head they gave her. Either way I'm so glad that I have this doll. I just wish that they wouldn't have had problems with the skintone the year they introduced her. Both her and my Kit are quite pale. Either way, this is a adorable doll. If you have the money and you like her, I say go for it!

I wasn't too fond of this outfit at first, but I needed another Christmas dress for my dolls. But, once I saw it in person I just loved it. The color combination is great and it looks very nice on my girls. I don't like the accessories either, they cost too much for one thing, and the only part I really like is the bracelet. This dress gets an A+!
Post by parklife268 on Dec 3, 2006 18:14:11 GMT -5
I still can't believe that I didn't like this outfit for the longest time! I have say that it was other people's personal pictures that sold me on the outfit. By the time I realized I liked the outfit, it was off of the website. I was a bit bummed but I lucked out when I found out they still had it in stock at AGPC when I was there in July of 2005. This set is just amazing, my favorite parts would definitely have to be the blouse and the wrap-around sweater. I really like how the bottom of the skirt comes off as well for a different look. This is one of my favorite outfits and for that it gets an A++++++!
Post by parklife268 on Dec 3, 2006 18:01:59 GMT -5
This is a really great outfit. I haven't had too much trouble with it, but then again the newer dolls are thin so I just pull it down so it looks longer. I wouldn't dare to try and put this on my older and chubbier dolls, because there is no way it would fit. I have to agree that I think the pocho would be better if it had velcro (though due to the material being thin, that wouldn't work). There was one time where I was pulling the shirt down and I pulled the poncho by accident as well and it got streched out a bit. It has appeared to have taken its shape again, but I'm sure with constant use it could easily get stretched out. I really like the color combination that they chose for this set, and as much as I dislike those types of boots, I really like this pair. A+ for the Sightseeing Outfit.

I really love this set! There are so many wonderful pieces and it matches so great! Not only does the outfit match perfectly, but it matches so well with the cabana and seaside accessories. I knew I had to have this one when it came out! A+++!
Post by parklife268 on Dec 3, 2006 18:41:28 GMT -5
I have this on my Jasmine, and she looks wonderful! This is probably one of the best sets they have ever come out with my opinion. The colors are just wonderful. I love the jeans and they of course work with so many other outfits. This is an A++++++ outfit! It's a must have!!!
Post by parklife268 on Nov 27, 2006 19:36:44 GMT -5
I really like the dress itself, but I have agree with everyone else about the shoes. The just don't seem fancy enough for the dress and there really isn't anything to them. Because of the shoes, this dress gets an A.
Post by parklife268 on Nov 27, 2006 19:00:13 GMT -5
I love the Grecian Princess Costume. You definitely get your money's worth with this set. I really like the choice of color that are used for the gown. The jewelry, the headband and the shoes are great. The only part that I have had issues with would have to be the armband. That little guy does not want to stay on because it is a bit too big for their arms. Of the most recent costumes, this would have to be my favorite. I give this costume an A+.
Post by parklife268 on Dec 22, 2006 10:30:32 GMT -5
I have the Denim Jumper outfit and I really like it too. I agree with Keri about the hook-and-eye closure. This thing can be a real pain! You have to be a bit careful with it so that you don't unhook it because it does come undone easily. I do agree that the legs seem a bit bare without tights, but I do think it works both with out without them. I really love the mix-and-match factor of this outfit. I like that the Denim Jumper, Field Trip Outift, and Flower Power outfit can work together to make new outfits. This is a great set! A+!
