I always just figured one would use the slow cooker to cook the chicken. The rolls and broccoli were just side dishes to go with the slow-cooker chicken. I can't thinking of the number of times my slow cooker meal is some type of chicken, where I add a side or two from my microwave.

This is one of my favorite pajama sets. My daughter absolutely loves these pajamas, and they look really nice on Julie. The material is not thin, which is a huge plus in my opinion. The slippers are wonderful. I also am not generally a fan of all pink, but I still really love these pajamas.

I just pulled mine down to take a quick peek. I'm not sure why one would consider it to look like bone. It definitely looks like it was made to look like wood. I ordered it about an hour before free shipping ended, so mine is recent. Tammy

I also purchased it on Cyber Monday. The outfit is really nice, and seems like a great camping outfit. As everyone has already mentioned, the wrist/sleeves are horrendous.
The trick we use that helps a bit, is to first put the dolls finger in the thumb hole. After the finger is in, then it becomes much easier to stretch the fabric over the remaining five fingers. My 5 year old was able to get one hand in using this technique.
The vest is just darling, though, and I love the fact that this outfit has separate pieces. Tammy

I agree. I got it last year when it was on sale. Actually, I got two. One for each of my girls.
The kids like it. Yes, the food is clumped on a plate, but it is still nice. It comes with two plates of food, two cups, a picnic blanket, and some silverwear. The girls have played with the set a fair amount. When one combines it with Chrissa's party treats, it is a good amount of food. The picnic basket is currently being used to hold iwako food erasers. As was previously stated, it can be difficult getting everything positioned carefully into the basket to close again. I almost seem 'ok' with clumped food for the twins, but not for full size dolls.

I bought my daughter this set last year when it was on sale. We bought it for Mia. :-) I definitely would recommend it. The cats are soft, and I like the eyes. Nibs has some great pictures of it above. Because there are two cats, it increases the playability. The only problem we've had with it, is the yarn ball has come undone a little. I think I can rectify that with a bit of glue.
Overall, though, I'd give this set an A. I enjoy the soft body animals far more than the hard body ones.
I saw them at AGPC and wondered if the fabric hadn't been improved since the reviews. They aren't brushed cotton but are a nice weight knit cotton fabric which I'd hope would hold up a bit better. Has anyone gotten them recently and washed them? Do they still have issues with pilling?
I saw them on Monday and also noticed they were a nice weight, but I never checked the material. Online says they are polyester.

I will give Mia an "A".
This is our first 18" AG doll, though, and so I really have nothing else to compare to.
Eyes: I LOVE the eyes. A+ Hair: I LOVE the hair. A+ I know that isn't very descriptive, but I think the combination is just very unique and beautiful together. I also love how the hair is just a bit different with that braid.
Clothes. B. My daughter really likes the sweater. I think the skirt is a pain to get on and off. The shoes are cute.
Overall grade. A. I've never had a love of dolls. I was always a stuffed animal girl. I enjoyed my barbies. I also recall my mom having this doll where you could press the belly button, and pull the hair to make it longer. The one thing I liked about that doll, was that the hair is so playable. That is what I'm loving about these dolls. The hair play is very fun, and I think Mia has hair that really lends itelf to play.
