I didn't have any problems with Kit's beret being too small - ours actually seems to fit her head rather nicely.
The mittens, on the other hand, are a little annoying. One of them is too tight around the wrist, so I really have to struggle with getting it on. The other one is real loose, so I have to struggle with keeping it on. Looks like I ended up with both sides of the coin.
Overall, I give this set a B! I love the look and style, but the fit is lacking.

This outfit is adorable... we especially love the hat with the pom-pom! Emily just looks so cute wearing this! We did get lucky, we purchased this outfit just on the brink of AG changing the taps from metal to plastic - we got metal and we are very pleased.

I agree with everyone above. The jacket is quite thin, especially since Emily has no pants or regular shirts to go under it... when I go outside in the winter, I do not go nekkid under my winter gear. I would have liked to see Emily have at least one outfit, that isn't a dress, even if it was a totally seperate outfit, so she could wear something under this.
That said... it is a very, very cute set - I love everything else about it.

I have the same disappointments as everyone else... but interesting dog tag info above (not sure about Wiki - as I've heard anyone can post there) but if it could be found on another source, I wouldn't be nearly so disappointed in this set.
One thing that annoys me about the sweater that wasn't mentioned, is that the puff sleeves on Emily's dress are really hard to get to lay right under the sweater, with out looking really bulky. I really have to help dd work with it so it looks nice.
Overall, I have to give this set a solid B. I feel that the sweater redeems any other disappointments, because Emily can wear it over several of her outfits.

Emily was a gift for my youngest daughter from Santa, Christmas 2008.
It was hard to find an Emily with out too much of the white plastic piece showing a lot - I found the best one at AG MOA - after going through every one that they had on the floor and some they brought out from the back.
Emily's meet outfit is exceptional! The shoes are a hair tight, but with a little coaxing, we can get them on. Our headband is fine, not too loose or tight.
Overall, I give Emily an A! I am still not thrilled with what little bit of the white plastic piece that shows at her part.

This is also a great piece of furniture, I love it because it's so small - yet big enough to hold Molly's night time necessities. The color is perfect with the little red accents. The drawer opens and closes. I like everything about the nightstand.

I was lucky enough to buy this vanity on sale, during one of the "great AG sales of 2008/09" - and I am so happy that I did. It is just a great solid piece of furniture, and I am thrilled with how nicely it compliments Molly's entire bedroom.
Then, this is how it's set up in our display cabinet:

This outfit was a gift for my daughter from her Godparents for Christmas 2009. We got lucky, AG is in the process of changing all of the taps on the bottom of the shoes to be plastic, ours are metal. This is an overall great set, but the flimsy crown does frustrate my dd, because she can't get it to stay on properly without smooshing Molly's bangs down... we ended up using bobby pins to hold it in place. Also, Molly can not wear her underwear under this outfit.
Overall, I give this outfit a conflicting review... It gets an A+ for play value (especially since we have the stage - our Molly' is always performing) - but the crown gets a solid D.

I purchased this table used from a board member - long before we started to collect for Molly. I liked it because it's just so versitile and can transcend so many time periods. I also liked that it can fold down for storage. Just a really great table and I am very, very happy with my purchase. The chairs are great, dollies never slip off.

Another great Molly outfit.
I like everything about it, the color & style. I also think the pattern looks like poinsettas.
I remember having issues with the red saddle shoes at first, but after Molly has worn them a few times (with socks), they have streched out, so we really don't have to struggle much at all to get them on. I am not sure if anyone else has noticed this.
Also, I never did notice that our plaid didn't match up perfectly until I was reading these reviews before writing my own. Even though ours doesn't match perfectly - I do think it's pretty close.
Overall, I give this outfit an A-! Only because we had to struggle with the shoes, at first, but now they are fine.

I purchased this last year during the huge AG sale... I just looked at my receipt - I only paid $25 for it. What a steal at that price! I am not sure that I would pay the $145 (?) original price tag for it, but even at half off, I think it would have been a good deal.
This stage has a lot of play value at our house, it is used for all of our dolls (Molly, Emily and modern girls), and it stays set up all of the time. In my photos, it looks like the screen is sagging, but my girls didn't have it wound tight and I didn't notice when taking photos.
Overall, I have to give this an A+! Only because I got such a great deal on it... we've definately gotten our $25 value, but I am not sure that we would have got the full price value (especially if you figure in the cost of the Theatre seats).

Winter Outfit: I agree with all of the above posters. This is an awesome outfit. It was a gift from my dd's grandparents Christmas 2008 - they ordered it in the nick of time before it was removed from the website. I expected the slicker and hat to be made of cheap plastic, so I was incredibly surprised that it is actually made of real rain coat material, and the clasps are real. Just a super outfit, and one of our favorite!

I really like this outfit for Molly.
I like that the jacket is embroidered. Our buttons are fine - fairly easy to open and close. My one and only complaint about this outfit is that it does attract dog hair (just like many of Molly's items - so it's not unique that way).
We paired our outfit with the Midnight Holly accessories (from the 2007 Holiday outfit), because I just can't justify buying Molly's skating accessories if we already have something similar. However, once we have everything else of hers, I might consider it - since we'd like to complete her collection.

I don't have any photos of Molly's Saddle Shoes as a close up - but I do have a few with her wearing them. Our pair was purchased from AG sometime in 2008 - they fit our Molly perfectly, the laces are just the right length, and no problems with the soles (but I think that might be a PM issue).
Overall, I give the AG version of these shoes an A!

So far, this is my all time favorite Molly outfit.
The only things I have to add that haven't been added already... our shorts were a tight squeeze to get on our Molly, and I didn't have a problem getting the shoes on over her socks. I love all of the pieces that come with this set, and I really like the bright springy colors.
Post by AGmom2AlliTori on Jan 23, 2010 22:49:58 GMT -5
I love this set! The robe is adorable, I believe we have a Pleasant Co. version. The ties are great, and haven't frayed, which is good. I didn't have too much of a problem getting the fuzzy wuzzies on Molly's feet.

I really love everything about this outfit, except if Molly wears it with her underwear - somone once said that it makes Molly look like a ham - and it does. So, our Molly wears her birthday suit under it, then the skirt doesn't lay funky. Otherwise, this is an exceptionally well made dress!
The shoes are adorable and very well made.
Overall, I give this outfit a B+! Only because it gets drafty under that dress.

I can't add much to the reviews above. Our set was purchased sometime in 2009 at the MOA store. It has only been lightly played with and displayed by my daughters (who are in the higher age bracket for AG)... the paper doily under our case is starting to curl up - so that's kind of annoying. Other than that, this is a great set... just don't lose the little candles.

I really like this dress a lot. When we first received it, it was laying a little strange in the box - so I misted the ruffles and laid them properly - when they dried, they were fine. I am always careful about making sure that dd hangs this dress so the ruffles don't get weird again. I would still like to get a second dress for our Emily.
I love the little crown, it is made of cardboard, so you have to be quite careful not to rip it.

I don't have much of anything to add that hasn't already been said... except: Our accessories were purchased from AG at the end of 2008, and Molly's beret does not have elastic in it, however, there is a slight "give" to the fabric, and it fits our Molly's head perfectly.
