I decided to get Chrissa's snowsuit and her gear. It arrived today. They are a bit snug but I love the sweater. I think I may have to get my knitting machine out and make a few of these darling little tops. The boots close up the side and slip on very easy. There is no extra length in the legs of the snowsuit and the elastic in the shoulder straps makes them easy for on and off. The hat and mittens go on fine and fit very nice.... The straps on the snowshoes are on rotating latches... you can set the boot in and then flip the strap over and then just lift the front one over the toe. It is not an exact fit but good enough for play. The inner tube is.... blow up and not much depth. (Thank goodness!) and just a bit larger than the old tube.
I know this set is expensive but I do like it. (Any my birthday is Tuesday) If you want it ... then wait as long as possible for a code but remember it's for a limited edition doll.

This review is for the outfit only. This is a really cute set and perfect for any modern doll. The sweater is good for mixing and matching, but the sleeves don't come all the way down to the doll's wrists. It closes in the back with no-snag velcro. The snowpants work just like real ones, and are waterproof so you can put your doll in the snow without worrying about her getting wet. The boots have a snowflake pattern on the soles.

I got the snowsuit for $20 for cyber monday as well. To be honest, I wasn't impressed with it in the beginning. For almost a year, I kept it in the box in my closet because I just didn't like it. It was only after getting it out again and changing Caroline into it that I started to like it a bit more. The most disappointing part of this outfit is I think the sweater; is just too thin and not really a sweater at all. It can be mixed and matched with jeans, or as I like to use it with Mia's meet skirt. The snowpants and boots are really good quality and remind me of the ones I used to wear in the snow.
Here are some photos
(you can see in this photo that the sleeves of the sweater are short)

This is a GREAT buy!!! The sweater can go with anything, and so can the snow suit, and boots. And everything is VERY realistic. It's really an amazing set. My dolls can't wait 'till it's wintertime again so they can all use it to play in the snow! A+
I just received this in the mail today from an ebay seller. I am so relieved because so many people in the review section said the outfit was too snug and the arms on the sweater too short. But I loved this outfit and decided to go ahead and get it anyway since I saw it brand new for a reasoanble price. Everything fits very well and the arms are not short. I am very pleased with how it looks against my doll's skin tone - she is a customized #44 with brown eyes (medium skin). I also like how the snowflake pattern under the bottom of the boots will leave actual imprints if you take the doll out in actual snow. Can't wait! This was a factory resale item, which I just read in another thread are not supposed to be resold but - oh well. I give it a definite A.
