We got this on sale and based on that price I think it's a B-, if I had paid full price I'd put it at a C-.
It's really large, and can hold various stuff but it has no chair. Like other reviewers that's my one big gripe. We don't have the computer so DD uses it to hold other stuff. And while she does like it - it hasn't seen a lot of play. I'm also really nit picky and I'm not a fan of having to put the stickers on yourself. There's no diagram showing you where to put them so I think if I were to purchase this in the secondary market I'd be concerned about the sticker placement.

We bought these for DD's birthday and she loves them. I think her stuffed animals sit in them more than her AG dolls. Love that the seats fold up and save space. The only thing I don't like are the little paper tickets. Although they look authentic they wouldn't hold up to play so I've stored them away until she's older.

The Trail Bike is blue with a slight purple shine. There are two AG stickers on both sides. The frame is metal. The seat, handles and a few other pieces are rubbery plastic. The peddles are on a joint allowing them to swing flat for storage, the wheels do not spin independently like Sam's bike. And there is a back kick stand for support. Included with it is a matching helmet and a plastic bike lock.
Pros: It's nice and heavy. The details are fantastic and it looks like a real bike. It looks nice for pictures. The little lock is cute.
Cons: The doll doesn't sit on the seat but has to stand to ride it. The front wheel easily swings making it difficult to stay up, several times I've walked into the play room to find it on it's side. The wheel not moving independently makes it difficult for a child to push it a crossed the floor.

I'd also give it a C and am very relieved that I got it on sale. There's no music, the two buttons only play cheering and the stage turns SO slowly. It doesn't feel like 'dancing' so much as limping in a circle. The stand doesn't hold the doll well at all which limits how you can pose her. DD played with it for 5 minutes then she too went back to Sam's bike (which is made of win).

We just purchased this. She's a very cute dog, but ours doesn't hold her bone at all. She'll hold other items just fine but not that bone, which disappointed my daughter. The leash and collar are adorable. As is the fuzzy sticker.

A very cute item, I just wish the bandana attached with velcro, elastic or a snap so it'd be easier for younger children to put on. Also wish the hat was slightly larger so that it would come down and stay on Coconut's head better.

Really amazing piece. Made of metal, the wicker basket is too cute. I think it's one of my favorite AG items. The elastic loops on the peddles can be harder for a younger child to use and they may need help. But the doll looks so cute displayed on it.
