This outfit is my favorite of all Kit's outfits. Even though it's only in her movie, and not in her books, yellow on Kit just looks stunning. The pleats are perfect, it matches with her meet clip and her meet hat. So many things can be added to this dress and still have it match. The flowers I guess give it the variation. The only problem is, the collar is attached in the back due to Velcro. I tend to love to put the cardigan from the school skirt set over top of this dress, but the collar in the back doesn't go over it. Good this Kit's hair sort of covers it up, and it isn't to noticeable.
The shoes are adorable, but I like Kit's meet shoes better. These are an off-white and it throws me off. I just throw these shoes aside.
A+++++++++ for the outfit - beautiful colors, brightens Kit up. B+ for the shoes - Great quality, but they don't tickle my fancy.
This is amazing! Though it can only go for Kit, since it says her name, and it says her dog's name. Yea, it's a scooter and it's cute for transportation, but it's plastic. My dad even said that metal wheels are like little death traps. It rolls smooth, Grace fits nicely. Instead of rope for the handles, it's plastic now, which is lame. Ropes are way more practical then. Yea, $24, I could get a new outfit. Only get this if: 1. You are trying to collect all of Kit's items. 2. It's on sale. 3. You love setting up scenes. It's ideal for scenes, and it's cute, but nothing I play with for hours and hours of the day. It actually gets minimum play compared to some of the other items.
C+ Because it's plastic and the ropes were replaced with plastic.
This is a beautiful outfit, and the pieces are ideal for mix-n-match. I put the little crocheted sweater over top all of Kit's outfits in the winter time! The shirt probably would look stunning under her overalls! Kit wore this in the movie at Thanksgiving, near the end. It is quite beautiful, but doesn't look like something she would wear to school. The socks I put with everything! Especially put them with her nightie because her bare little legs seem cold at night without them. The colors are close to Kit's nightie, so you can use the ribbon from her Nightie for this outfit instead of that goofy hat. The hat doesn't do me justice. I don't like static and her hair surely sticks up after taking that puppy off. The shoes go with anything, and are beautiful. They have Velcro closures, and can get caught, so Velcro them closed before putting them away with other clothes and shoes. My shoes got caught on her socks the other day and they started to fray.
Sorry that this review is kind of choppy and all over the place. Shirt - Beautiful, can be put with overalls, knickers, and other outfits. A+ Skirt - Solid pinks with a belt that can't be removed. Elastic to fit any doll, including PM dolls. A+ Jacket - Can overlap many of Kit's outfits, turning them from Summer to Winter. A+ Socks - Go with really anything, though they have a pink edge at the top. A+ Hat - Static! Can get snagged easily. Not my favorite. D+ Shoes - Brown, and can go with anything! Adorable! A+
This is a must in your Kit's collection. She received this coat from her mother who made it from one of Kit's Dad's old coats. The fabric is just like a real coat. My mother has a coat just like it, and they feel the same. It definitely is thick enough to withstand years and years of play. The belt is the problem. I undid it and I found it extremely difficult to get it back through. It took me about 30 minutes to get it undone, and it took 15 minutes to get it back on again. I'm afraid to take it out again. So, I looped the belt around the coat, and it is in the back now, and all you see in the front are the buttons. It looks a little silly. I first I took the belt out all the way. It didn't look to bad, but it was a little funny to have two belt loops and no belt.
This is a beautiful set! It comes with a cute little green box to hold three homemade newspapers, and blank sheets of paper to start a new newspaper. The little "ding" happens when you get to the end of the line, and when you go back to the beginning it "dings" again! It is definitely like a real typewriter by how you can roll the paper through the rolls and pretend Kit is starting a new page. The little picture of her favorite baseball player is adorable, and it gives her "inspiration" to write IMO. The eraser is cute, but CAUTION! If you erase on the paper to hard, it'll leave an orange/burgundy stain, which is quite...ugly. I just pretend to erase things. The rows of keys are all combined so if you hit a certain letter, the whole row of letters will push down. The space bar is separate though. Though, I was disappointed to see when you hit the backspace button, the typewriter still pushed forward, as if you pressed the space button. I put Kit's typewriter on wood surfaces and I dragged it along, and it left no stains or anything behind. It might depend on the typewriter. There are little black rubber legs underneath the typewriter that hold it in place, so when you are typing it doesn't move all over.
I give this set a A+ I probably wouldn't recommend it to any child under the age of 9, if some typewriters stain.
The striped nightie is adorable. It doesn't even matter if it's pink. Kit would wear anything pink because she knows that there are people out there who are less fortunate and have nothing. I like how it goes with her new bedding, but it isn't practical. I don't own pajamas that match my bed set. It's soft and the buttons on the front are fake. Like Joannep said, it Velcros closed in the back. The colors go together nicely, and yellow on Kit just looks wonderful! I was very happy to see they put yellow in the stripes to balance it out.
The headband is a pain. If you bought or are thinking of buying this set for a doll with bangs, it's nearly impossible to get the headband on there head without messing their bangs up. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to doll hair, and I will not stand for messy hair. It works well for Kit, but sometimes you get little bumps. Though not many girls wear there hair in a ribbon while going to bed because it'll just fall out if you are a "active" sleeper.
The slippers are interesting. I'm not quite sure if slippers then were anything like this. They just seem like shoes to me. But they are actually really easy to slip on and make it possible to make Kit stand up on her own (on solid surfaces).
A for the Nightie (wish it had real buttons) D+ for the headband (wish it wasn't so tight) A for the slippers (wish they looked more like slippers)
It's worth the $24 dollars in my opinion. I think it's really nice for Kit's collection, especially for winter time.
I'm editing my review because I sounded extremely childish in it.
So here we go.
She has fabulous pale blue eyes and her hair is a honey golden color. Her features are cute and mine has very thin hair but it's fun too style. I do recommend her cause she is very cute. She's kind of my mini me but with bangs ( I do plan on getting bangs cause my forehead is huge. )

I hate the Bikini. It shows the tag, and it's a pain. Love the pants though. They aren't very summer looking since they are pants not shorts, but they are amazingly easy to roll up into caprices (the computer corrected this, not sure if I spelled it right). The flip flops are amazing!!! As well with the shirt, one of my favorite shirts! The hat makes it all for me.
My neighbor got so mad at this, she threw it across the room. She thought it was the dumbest $10 she ever spent. Personally, it is like a real sweatshirt. It is cute, and the pocket is real! Stick little knick knacks in there! B+

Julie is my favorite doll of all time. Though I know many people don't particularly like her face or she doesn't look like the book, I agree it is a little odd, but she is gorgeous both ways! She was my first doll (I consider her my first doll since my first (my real first doll) I hated so much (not sure why I just didn't like her) so I like to think of Julie as her instead. She is the only one I play with at the moment, and I love her outfit. I usually put her meet jeans with tops of her other clothes because they are just wonderful. Her top can be used together, just as a sweater, or just as the shirt. A+ (times 1 billion) I ordered her right when she came out, and I'm glad I did.

It amuses me that AG made the front have diagonal stripes and the back to have horizontal. Hate the shoes! They fall off all the time. B+ I'm not a fan of tank tops, but love the pants and sweatshirt and the shoes are alright.
I have all the Angelina Ballerina books. I had her little sister, Alice, her doll, her house, and of course her! I loved them so much, especially since my DG (grandma) gave them to me before she passed away. I'm sure my Angelina is downstairs somewhere. Now, I think I might have to read her Christmas book.
P.S. You forgot Angelina at the Fair!

When I first got her (I have OCD) and I took her braids out. Her hair was all over the place after I played with her for a day. It drove me crazy because I wanted her hair to be perfect! But she had stray hairs everywhere when left down. I got so frustrated I just put her away. She has wonderful hair for up dos. It looks lovely, and I use her for my model when I sew clothes. So, She is wonderful really, love her hair color too.
