We have only had our Molly for 2+ years. We do have 2 pairs of glasses for her (not sure how that happened), we have not had any problems with either pair. Actually, I like the fact that they don't fall off easily.

I really like this dress, it is made of high quality velvet, and it's perfect for Molly's time period. I must say that I like it more now than when we first received it - it's definatly grown on me. Occasionally, we have issues with the white collar portion laying flat, so I mist it with a little bit of water to get it to lay down.
Overall I give this dress an A! The quality is just amazing, and the fit is perfect.

Mattel version I really like this set a lot... I really thought I'd missed out on it completely when it "sold out" on the website right before Christmas. I was kind of kicking myself about it (especially when the prices skyrocketed on Ebay), since we have the rest of Molly's table set, so I sent my PS an email, and she was able to locate a set for me.
I think the above review is very accurate, so I will only add my photos. However, I would grade this set with an A - I love how this Tea Set is replicated from a real set, so that makes it unique to me.

My daughter just received this outfit for Christmas, it is one of the last remaining outfits, still sold by AG, that she needed to complete her Molly collecton.
This set was purchased at AG in the fall of 2009.
I love all the memories that this outfit brings to mind. The hat fits Molly's head perfectly. I really like the crisp white of the shirt, ad how nice the collar lays - no velcro! The tie around her neck is just the right length. The shorts fit our Molly perfectly (even if they are a little lopsided in the photo).

Well, we really like this bed. I was fully prepared to not like it, as a matter of fact, I cringed when I had to buy it - but dd collects for Molly and she begged for her bed for Christmas.
After putting this bed together (which was super simple - just a phillips screwdriver), and setting it up with Molly's other bedroom furniture - it went straight from the very bottom of my favorites to my 2nd favorite.
I love everything that this bed comes with. No, it's probably not worth the $18 price hike it took a couple of years ago with the introduction of the accessory pillow and rug - but those two items add such charm to this bed that I am glad I opted to purchase new - rather than buy used.
I expected to dislike the "lego like" frame on the bed, but it actually seems very sturdy. It would have been nice if it would have come with sheets - but none of the beds do - so I just shrug my shoulders and enjoy what it does come with.
And a photo of the bed set up in Molly's bedroom - I think it is adorable - and so perfectly "Molly".
Overall, I give this bed an A! It did not earn the + just because I don't think that the accent pillow and rug warrant the $18 price hike... if the bed was priced more in the $45 price point, it would have earned the +.

Another great outfit for Molly! This outfit was purchased by my BFF in the sale right before it retired a few years ago, it sat on her closet shelf for a few years, then she gave it to my dd for Christmas when she started collecting for Molly.
We love almost everything about this outfit.
The jacket fits very nicely, I am extremely pleased with it. The scarf is the perfect length to tie. I love the little hat (although the chin strap seems a little long - something we can live with). The khaki pants are adorable, the perfect size/color/style for Molly.
My only wish for this outfit, is that I wish it came with a shirt to go under the jacket - Molly is a little chilly under there.
We do not own Molly's brown oxfords, which would match this outfit perfectly.
Overall we give this outfit an A! It would have got the + if there would have been a shirt to go under it.

This is one of our favorite outfits for Molly.
The plaid shirt is so nice, the little red buttons actually button. The sleeves fit our Molly, and I haven't noticed any issues with our shirt being too small. If anything, it fits just right.
The navy blue cords are probably my favorite, since Molly really doesn't have many pants. I've seen some reviews where people say that these cords are too tight, however in this photo our Molly is wearing her bloomer underwear underneeth the cords, and there was room to spare. So, I don't know if we got lucky with bigger cords, or if our Molly has an unusually small bottom. Either way, they fit her fine, and I am extremely happy about that.
Our outfit (purchased used) did not come with navy hair ribbons, so I cannot comment on those.
Overall I give this outfit an A+! We love Molly's collection, and we are glad we added this outfit to it.

Our Molly doll was a gift from Santa in 2007. She is gorgous! She has beautiful coloring and "Pleasant Company" stamped on her neck.
Molly's hair is a pleasure to style. Dd (10 y/o) has been caring for her hair since she got her - although she is quite careful. Molly's hair is a beautiful color, and we love her curls when her braids are out.
Molly's glasses aren't quite as round as some I have seen, we must have a newer style.
Overall, I give Molly an A+! She is a fantastic doll, we really enjoy her and her collection.
ETA: remove Meet outfit review and put it in the proper place.

Ours is incredibly short.... the sleeves end about 1" before the doll wrist.... The bodice is an extreme empire waist... and the skirt falls about 2" above her knees. We are very, very disappointed. All that said - it is still an extremely cute dress - if we tug a bit, we can get the sleeves to just touch her wrists. The empire waist, we can live with, and as long as the doll has the matching tights on - the skirt doesn't look nearly as short as it actually is.
Dd loves this dress, so it stays. I am apalled that I paid $36 for it. I might email my PS and see if there are any left to exchange it with.

I recieved Kit for Christmas 2008 from my husband. She was so sweet. My poor girl had some awful wig issues - the worst part being that only the edges of her wig were glued down - so every time I brushed her hair, the brush would get caught in her netting. I was afraid her wig would rip eventually.
I went to AGMOA yesterday and sifted through their Kits, to find one with a good wig. I was very impressed that I was albe to find one with no lumps, good glue and thick. However, when I got her home and took out her pony tail, I discovered that the hair in the pony was a good 2" longer than her other hair. I was very disappointed! I decided that rather than exchange her again, I would just give her a hair cut.
Overall, I still give Kit an A. I love her character and all of her stories, which really adds to her appeal. I would have enjoyed her more, if she wouldn't have had the wig issues though.
