My daughter just got #33 for her 9th birthday. She loves her Summerlyn. She is her first MAG doll (she has 4 historicals and 2 GOTY). She is much larger than my #61!
I got her off Zulily for $80 so I am not sure if all #33's have thin hair but her hair is very thin. Also ours is more blonde than red.
I am sure my Dd would give her an A+ but I give her a A- due to thin hair, having a left eye smaller than the other and she slightly looks off which made photographing her a bit difficult. She is a gorgeous doll overall and glad my Dd is happy with her.

I have this and love the colors, too. I also give it an A. The top on fits our Kanani tight and pulls. The neckline also bugs me so and my OCD keeps kicking in to "fix it" but its supposed to be asymmetrical. I find it odd but adore the shorts and shoes. LoVE the shoes!!

I really like this outfit and skateboard. Is it worth $48? No. I think $38 would have been max. The shorts are made from the same slickery material I had on mine when I was her age. I don't recall having a rainbow on any of my clothing but it's ok. It's still cute. The socks? Same as mine. The sneakers? Same as mine. These are thin material just like the ones I had as a kid. Even the skateboard is like a replica. HOWEVER, this skateboard should have had a better way to balance the doll. It's too small. The strap on top is too slippery so it won't stay on Julie's feet and it's too bulky on the top to get Julie to stand without help. The skate board is cute and historically accurate but it can't compare to the MAG skateboard. At least the dolls can stand on the MAG one. Okay…rant over. I am not returning it. I love it and don't think it will go on sale but $48 is expensive for this, to me. I did my best to get an action shot of Julie out front today and the wind kept blowing her over so I had to start over in my back yard.
Love these shorts! You won't catch me dead in these.
The shoes are thin but same as the ones I had as a kid. However, they are too slickly and the strap on the skateboard will not stay on.

My Dh bought me the dress and tea cart for Valentine's Day. I had Cécile in mind the moment I saw this dress. It was love at first sight. Lol! I love the bow headband. It's the type of material that you can move around and it just stays. They could have made the headband part bigger it was very difficult to get on.
Very delicate bell type sleeves. The mint green is very pretty with a blue/pink pattern. Lovely.
The shoes are also pretty much cuteness. They velcro close:

My daughter loves this dress. I think it's very modern and bright. I think it is very cheery. I do like it but, again, it looks very modern to me. I like the shoes but they are much harder to get on than her previous ones. Because they now have velcro they snag the socks. They seem a bit small and could have been made a bit larger. My Addys foot is a bit too big for these.
I will start with the shoes: The white ones are the new ones. The laces do not lace up.
They are definitely not as long. My Addy's foot did not shrink though. Lol
I would think the velcro would help young'ins put them on but they are just so small.
I LOVE the measuring tape. LOVE IT! It is ribbon but I think it works and Addy can hold it no problem
The bird is cute and I don't think its that bad. I will keep an eye on the bottom where it comes together. If this drops I am sure it may split. Addy CAN hold it but her arm has to be set high up to do it which looks odd. I would suggest using a clear hair elastic.
Amazingly, my plastic hating daughter loves the scissors a lot. They look like OG scissors to me. Big disappointment to me. I like that Addy can hold them easily and the look great in her apron pocket.
Here is the back of the dress/apron. I do like this dress. I don't love it. But I do like it a lot.
Without the apron
Overall I give it an A-. The shoes are a C because they are difficult to get on. I do think it is worth the $48 because there are many pieces to this outfit and I do reccommend it for those who love Addy or want a modern dress for another doll.
Here is the dress with a purple ribbon around the waist if you want to make it a modern Easter Dress

Here is my Josefina in her new BF Meet Outfit. At first I didn't like it since it seemed so bright but now I love it. Josefina looks amazing in bright colors. I think that the skirt is extremely thin and that better material could have been used but I do like the pattern and colors. I am glad they added a new pair of moccasins but I don't ever use them. I prefer Josie in her black/brown boots instead. Overall the outfit is fantastic. I knocked it down from an A+ to an A due to the thinness of the skirt.

I wanted 61 the day I saw her photo leaked. My dd and I named her that day. I love her hair color. Her wig is thin, her limbs are looser than my historicals and her left eye us a bit off but she is a keeper. We looked at another 61 and her wig was so messed up and her limbs so loose she could barely stand. Her facial paint, color of her hair are an A+. Her hair being thin and the slight eye issue...I give the overall doll an A. The workmanship/Quality Control on the overall run of this doll is a D-.

Dd got her from my mom for Christmas 2013. She is an A+++ from Dd. She is the most spoiled rotten girl at our house. The girl has everything. Its Caroline's world at our house and all the other girls get to be in it:

I love this set. The earrings are awesome. The bag can be used with all modern dolls and is in style today. The beret is cute and we have used it with different outfits. Amazing how much the set was going for right when it sold out….$89 on ebay! Not worth it at all but someone bought it.
Here is Caroline rocking the hat modern and Julie with the purse:

LIke Jamirae, I was a completist for Ivy and just had to have all of her things. I bit the bullet at $14 and got it. TBO, Ivy has only worn this once. I personally can't stand the outfit but Dd said Ivy had to have it. It is true to the style, color, material…everything. I realize I have Julie and Ivy but I HATE a lot of the 70's fashion.
I was Ivy's age during the 70's and I remember having this outfit. I didn't like it then and still don't. I will give it an "A" for accuracy but the collar bugs me to no end. Ivy's hair keeps going under it.

I love her New Years outfit but it is NOT for little girls. It will snag so easily. I put her in this dress and she is carefully handled with it on. Her shoes are made of velvet and shouldn't leave the house or be kept out in the open as it may get dust on them. I love this outfit and red is one of Ivy's "wow" colors:
When Dd goes out with her the velvet shoes stay home:
Overall: A So. Adorable. Worth $14? Probably not. Did I have to have them? Oh yes I did. And I don't regret one dollar. They look perfect with the current PWP and will go with so many different other things as well!
I love these shoes and they will go with many things. After seeing your review I need those black tights!

This is a very pretty outfit. It looks great on my Addy. I do wish the top came apart so it was 2 separate pieces but I understand the ease for little girls to dress their dolls. I think the material is quite thin but I am not a seamstress. The color is amazing and I think other than Rebeccas new meet this is the best outfit in the BeForever collection thus far. I give it an A.

I bought this a few days ago and love the hat. The ribbon is beautiful and looks great on any dark haired doll. I like the purse. It is thin but well made. Wished it included her coin. I give it an A+ as well.

I saw this in the store yesterday and LOVE IT! I love yellow so it took all I had not to get the doll and girl outfit. I had other items on my historical list and got the cabana. I will be getting this outfit July 5th when I visit my family in St. Louis. I may have to pick up #30 while I am there too. I just love this outfit on her. I think it looks great on all your girls…especially Betsy.

The turtleneck is right on with something I would have worn as a kid in the 70's. My mother used to crochet me jumpers like this but I don't recall ever having a polyester jumper. I think its very cute though.
This was a gift to me from my mother when she bought me Julie and it was my favorite outfit in her entire collection at the time because I just love flower pants.
I don't like that there are no shoes in the box. So glad I didn't pay for it. It seems like most of Julie's line has no shoes and Julie just wears her meets shoes with everything. Don't like that.
It fits my Julie just fine. I have used her turtleneck with so many other outfits and many times with her meet pants. I like that.
Like others have said: needed shoes and another accessory like a ribbon for her hair or a clip or SOMETHING.

Julie was the first doll my mother bought me…for my 46th birthday! She will always be special to me. She is my JLY doll. I love her silky straight hair. It is so easy to take care of. Since I like her hair straight I really don't try to do anything with it except braid it in different ways. She looks "older" to me than all of our other dolls. So, she is always the oldest of all the girls.
I was a child of the 70's (8 in 76) so I really like the bell bottoms and the flower jumper - squeel! I don't care for her Meet outfit at all and wouldn't have worn what she has on other than the fact she has bell bottoms and the purple crochet hat. It has mix match possibilities but I just don't care for her two-tone pants. Bleh.
I love her face mold. It is my favorite. I am so glad my mother bought her for me because I would have never bought Julie on my own. I am more attached to DOC and more of an 1800's historical vibe. But, Julie has added lots of modern fun to our group of girls.
Overall she is an A+. She is made well, I love her eyes, her face mold, her hair….sigh.
I am a child of the 70s... In grade school, I ate Wonder Bread, Hostess Cupcakes, and had Kool-Aid in my thermos!! I LOVE Julie's lunch! VERY accurate and appropriate! I also love that my DD loves Julie's things!! I give this lunch an A+ for play value and A+ for accuracy!
I just got this for Julie yesterday. It is so adorable and I am thrilled that I got this! It is "totally" 70's.
I was a child of the 70's (8 in 76) and her lunchbox looks exactly like the one I have, including the thermos. I just wish it wasn't made out of plastic. My father ate Pringles like crazy and I would find them in my lunchbox. Also, I loved Hostess cupcakes and ate them all the time. My mother always bought Wonderbread so this entire set is "right on" with the era and what my parents would have put in my lunch box. A+ for accuracy!
I wish the lunch box was a bit bigger. It is difficult to put all the "puzzle pieces" in there. I have to put the thermos in first, then the sandwich, then the pringles and then the cupcake….in that order to get it to fit. The other thing that I wish is that the Pringles weren't stuck together.
Other than the minor things I give this lunch box an A. My daughter and I are so thrilled with it. Brings back memories!
