There are cute pink fleece hats for girls and dolls at our local Borders. I don't know if other book stores are offering this set too. You get the girl and doll hat for like $11. The hats were on the same display as the contest to win the MY AG doll.
This is a really well made set. The spider frying pan is super heavy definitely real cast iron or some sort of metal. It does have three legs it stands on although they have sunken down into the carpet in the photo.
The bowl is real pottery as well, and again very nice to look at.
The set also includes a wooden spoon, recipe to make your own sweet potato pudding and a little pretend greenery to embellish your creation.
The lantern is made of wood with little plastic windows meant to look like that mica stuff. The windows always seemed like they were put on wrong as they are glued to the outside, not the inside. But that's the way it was meant to be.
The plate of cookies is nice, although the cookies are those rubbery things that I know many people don't like. It is nice that you get the recipe to make your own real bizcochitos.
My favorite part of this set is the Ramillete kit. There was also a little bottle of glue that came with the set originally. I did make one ramillete and there are enough materials to make more, but you would need to find another little stick and sprig of greener. Pretty easy to find at most craft stores.
Overall grade: B+
If you can find it for not to much on ebay go for it, it's nice to have the old mini craft kits that seemed to be important to each doll's collection back in the day.
The outfit is well made and the material is soft and silky feeling. The embroidery on the bodice is pretty. I don't much care for the style of the purse. The buckles are fake. The straps are actually attached with velcro. The ability to take off the flowers at the waist is a nice feature to give the dress two different looks.
These are great. The material is kind of a rough tweedy kind of fabric. Not sure how to describe it. The wooden bottoms are faux wood pattern, made with that soft material. The flowers make these sandals look great with jeans. I also love the shoes box. It's really sturdy and great to hold small items. I use them to hold Coconut accessories and some doll jewelry.
This set has a lot of play value. The notebook cover is made of material and looks just like real covers. You can also take the spiral bound notebook out of the cloth cover. The backpack has two pockets, the large main compartment and the small front pocket. The calculator really works (with battery of course). The report card is fun. It's carbon paper so you can fill out the top form and it copies onto others. Just like I remember from when I was in school. There is also the pencil and math book. The math book is the same as the one offered in all subsequent school sets. It's cute and has a couple chapters from a real math book.
I'm not super thrilled with S[rocket either. I think I would give him a B or B-.
I was also super disappointed that the leash is not removable. The interesting thing is that if you look really closely at the picture of Nicki's whole world collection in the catalog it looks like the leash is attached with velcro. And even if you look at the close up picture of Sprocket online you can see a rectangular stitch box at the end of the leash where it looks like it is removable from the collar. I wonder why they made the prototypes this way and then got rid of it. I think it decreases the play value to always have a leash on the dog...Especially for the $24 price tag.
