For Bitty: OK, we established the shoes are horrid, cheap plastic, ill fitting . The suit and towel are nice and age appropriate. Reminds me of set from Gymboree. Grade: B
For Big Girls: The shoes actually fit better, but are still cheapy. Suit fits fine, but pattern a bit young. Grade: B-
In Conclusion: This set is probably the best swimsuit for bitty, but it's sad that AG didn't add the detail on the shoes and 3 flowers intead of just 1, so it looked the book...that (and better quality of the shoes) would have made this spectacular.
First Impression: The bunny slippers are better than previous ones.
For Bitty: The robe is very plush and soft, slippers are beyond cute. Nightgown is cute, but the material is truly horrid. I almost bought this in little girl size for my daughter, so glad I did not. It's polyester and itchy and just weird feeling....but then again dolls can't feel. Grade: A-
For Big Girls: Nightgown can be a baby doll, but robe does not work with a lot of hair. Grade: C
In Conclusion: might be a bit overpriced for what you get, get it on sale.
For Bitty: Very age appropriate. Things yo would actually see on a baby. The jumper and turtleneck are nice, but I love the knit outfit. The knit is nice and soft. The shoes are pain, they are hard to get on, but as they are knit, the may loosen up. Grade: A-
For Big Girls: Knit is not appropriate, jumper and turtleneck can work, but a bit young. Shrug and cap can look a bit like a hoodie. Grade: C
In conclusion: A lot of nice pieces for Bitty, wouldn't get it for the big girls on their own, but they can share if they have a little bitty sister.
First Impression: Darling, but black already looks faded...not a rich black.
For Bitty: Oh, my! These leggings are a pain! I had a hard time with them, can't imagine a child trying to do these. The shoes are hard to get on as well, not a fan of the knit shoes.The hat doesn't seem to want to sit right.... and yet, once on it is charming. Grade: B
For Big Girls: top of sweater is a bit wide, leggings go on much easier. Probably a bit too young for a 9 year old. Grade: B-
In conclusion: Probably more appealing to little ones, but they will need help with it.
First Impression: Shirt looks used, guess it's suppose to be 'rustic'?
For Bitty: Not a big fan of the pants for a baby. It's like IRL, when you think the jeans look 'cute', but then you barely use them because the don't fit right and are not comfy for the baby. Scarf does not flatter her face. Shoes, do not like the fake holes with no laces, would have looked cuter without the 'eyelets' Grade: C-
For Big Girls: As much as I don't like this for Bitty, I love it for the bigger girls. Some how the shirt is charming, shabby chic, if you will. Wear as on bitty it just looked worn. Pants are adorable, since they are now appropriate. Scarf looks better with hair. Grade: B+
In Conclusion: Would get it for big girls, but would pass for bitty, unless you can get it for a great price.
A very true to life sleeper I thought, I bought mine preloved and the lace was down right yellow. I decided to risk it and washed it. I used oxy clean spray prewash on the lace, washed it in warm with detergent and clorox2 and it came out wonderful.
ETA: The one flaw I would say is the sleeper opens too much at top. I just added a hook and eye and it stays shut and looks much better. Also, I switched out the blue bow for a pink one for a girl and I like the contrast.
