Since Addy is my newest historical, she doesn't have a lot of clothes compared to Kirsten and Felicity. So whenever I have some extra money I try and get something for her.
With summer fast approaching (while other may say summer is already here, I don't feel like it is because I'm still teaching), I figured it was time for Addy to get a summery outfit. So, without further ado, here are pics of my Addy in her Summer Dress:
Kirsten was my first AG doll as a girl. I got her in 1995. My only complaint about her is that she has dry hair (compared to my newer dolls, at least) but I think that's more due to my not knowing how to "properly" care for her hair back then, than being any fault on Pleasant Company's part. Her face has very little face paint, but I love the sweet, innocent look it gives her.
I just got JLY #25 for Christmas! I knew that she was beautiful from the many pictures people have posted on the board, but she's even more stunning in real life! Sometime I just find myself staring at her - she's that pretty!
When I got the chance to thoroughly inspect her in person, I noticed a few aspects that I wasn't expecting:
--If you look closely at her hair, you can see that it truly is "black-brown" (as the description from AG states) - she has highlights of brown mixed in throughout all of the black! This was a nice surprise!
--Her skin-tone appears to be lighter than my other "light-skin" dolls. I really like this about her because it makes the contrast with her dark hair that much more prominent.
So, overall, I would definitely give her a grade of A!!
Here are some pics of my #25 (I've named her Isabella), to enable those people who haven't bought her yet to put her on their list (hehehe):
I got my violin set right after it came out, and it's held up really well over the last 13 years. My case is less-sturdier than the newer case, but besides that I like the whole set very much. I've played the violin myself since I was 10 (I'm 24 now), so I appreciate AG's making a quality product.
Here's the stand:
This isn't the kind of stand most students would have at home, but it is the kind that would be used in a concert setting.
Not exactly the same as the hard-plastic case I have, but a pretty good representation.
The violin in the case:
The bow wouldn't be as loose as it is in this case in a real case. In a real case, there would be an attachment that would hold the grip of the bow in place.
The violin itself:
I really like this violin. I've found the PM set to have a nicer color on the violin - not as two-toned as the Mattel version.
The bow has real hairs! It's such a cool detail!
The rosin included is real - I'd recognize that smell anywhere! - but most people don't have a loose chunk of rosin. More often, the rosin is set in a wood case, or is a circular disk stored in a cloth.
The second AG doll (my first was Kirsten) that I received was my #7, which I named Kaitlyn. She is basically my mini-me, except for the fact that she still has bangs and I started growing mine out in the 7th grade. She was bought around 1996/1997, so she is Pre-Mattel. She has a slightly chubbier body and less face-paint than my Mattel AG (Felicity), but on the plus side she has the soft eyelashes for which PM's are famous!
Here are a few pics of her:

I got this outfit for Christmas and I love it. Yes, the jeans are a bit tight, but I was able to get them on both Kirsten and a #7. They're tighter on Kirsten than on my # 7, which doesn't make sense because 1.) they're both PM dolls from around 1996 / 1997 and 2.) Kirsten wore them without underwear and Kaitlyn wore them with underwear; but, overall, they still look good on both.
Here is a pic of Kirsten in the outfit:
and here are pics of my #7, Kaitlyn, in the jeans and other tops:
