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.

The shorts, shoes and socks are very 1970s. I grew up during that period so I do remember...lol. The shirt is so cute! Not only does it work for the1970s but also for the 1980s and even today! The skateboard is cute but I don't think my Julie will use hers as much as she uses her bike and roller skates. All in all an A.

This outfit is adorable! I agree that the price is a bit too high, but since I got it on sale, I can't complain. I am very into tie-dye and bright colors in general, so I knew I had to have this one for my Julie. Everything fits perfectly...no tightness here! The skateboard is cute, but it is quite small, and Julie's feet will not stay in between the board and the strap for very long. I give this set an A-.
This set is adorable! I agree that I only would have purchased it on sale. The shoes are really cute. My only issue is that my socks don't quite match, which is weird. The coloring at the top is slightly off. You can see the one on the right is a little lighter in color. It's hard to balance on the skateboard, but for me that's not a major issue. I wish it had come with a couple of soft hair ties for the price.
I give it a B+ due to the sock issue, balancing problem, and the price. But I do love it!

I picked up this outfit when I was in Chicago. I agree $48 is steep and I'm about 90% sure that it will go on sale again. Despite that I chose to buy it now anyway. My reasons... 1) I may not have the money when it goes on sale and 2) who knows if the website will be working by then.
