*Molly's pajamas can be found in the books Molly's Surprise, Happy Birthday, Molly!, and Changes for Molly, as well as the short story "Molly's A+ Partner". They are also worn by Molly in the movie Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front*
(these pajamas were replaced by the Floral Pajamas in February, 2013)
I didn't see any reviews for Molly's pajamas, so I figured I HAD to do one, since her jammies are among my very favorite Molly outfits!
Molly's pajama set is very charming. It has red and white stripes (very candy cane-like) with three white buttons down the front of the shirt. (However, Velcro closes the shirt, not the buttons.)
The shirt is slightly long (it goes right down to her rump), and you can tie the matching sash around her waist. Please note that the sash is attached to the back of the pajama top and is not detachable. The pajama top also has a wee little pocket, which is adorable.
Her pajama pants are held up by an elastic waist, and the bottom of the pants are cuffed.
The fabric feels like thin cotton, but it looks and feels very comfortable and snuggly.
I'm sorry that my picture of Molly in her jammies is truly awful and blurry, but I don't have a better photo on me right now. But don't let my bad photo deter you!
All in all: Very well-made and highly recommended. A dolly must-have if you like pajamas (like me )!
I was disappointed in the fabric choice for these. I had anticipated that they would be softer and they are more of a stiff cotton instead. My mom made these for me way before patterns for AG clothes existed and she chose a soft flannel and the shirt buttons with buttons. I actually prefer her design to AG's. B- here for AG's version.

I think they are perfect for fall-they are crisp cotton. They are too warm for summer and too light for winter. They are from an authentic 1940s PJ pattern (My grandmother, Kit's age, says "PJs" is the correct term). I HATE HATE HATE the velcro. It's weird and leaves gaps in the front of her PJ top. I wish the buttons were real. My Molly is happy to have her PJs though and she likes them. Grade: B

I thought they should be softer like the ones for girls (which I am wearing right now!). But I still love to match my Molly. Molly is wearing her PJs and robe and slippers right now. Laura is mad because she doesn't have any ''real'' AG pajamas.
I love Molly's PJs. Recently bought them on eBay, so Molly has not worn them yet, but they were one nightwear that I always wanted the most out of the historical nightwear. They are tagged 1990 Pleasant Company, and the material is sturdy yet soft.
Definitely cannot wait to have a slumber party between by dolls!
Molly will be getting ready for Christmas soon, and won't have her bed until Santa brings it, so Petra is modeling these.
I had no idea that they were velcro! I was expecting buttons. I am disappointed. But otherwise, I like them. They seem comfy and large. Will fit any doll, PC or Mattel. The material is thin. I agree, it should match the girl's pajamas, which is so nice.

Molly's pajamas have always been one of my favourites - they just look so comfy! I bought the PC version of these from eBay in December 2017 so my Molly would have something to wear for the holidays. Overall, I'm pleased with them, save for a few minor quibbles, and give them an B+.
The top Velcros up the front and then ties across the middle. I do wish that the buttons were actual buttons instead of Velcro. If you don't line the Velcro up perfectly, the top can gape and look a bit awkward. I've also always struggled with the tie - it never looks right! There's always one end that sticks up while the other lays perfectly downward. This is probably an issue with my tying abilities, but it bugs the heck out of me. No matter what I do, I can't get them to stop doing this! So, great idea, but difficult to execute.
These are just standard pajama bottoms. The ends are rolled up and tacked to the pants for a cute look. I am impressed at how well the patterns were matched in this.
I like the pattern of the pajamas - the red and white stripes remind me of a candy cane and their colouring looks good on Molly. The fabric is a bit stiff and thin. I could see these working as either spring or fall pajamas; they seem too warm for summer and not warm enough for winter. Still, they look pretty comfy and, my issues with the top aside, make Molly look like she's ready for a snooze.
My dolls: Samantha, Tess (Bitty Baby), Kit, Emma (#4), Molly, Elizaveta (My Twinn), Aziza (Goetz Little Sister), Saila (Maplelea), Kirsten, Viktoria, Peggy (#58), Marya Gregoryavna, Byron, Caroline, Alyssa (Stardust Classics), Joan of Arc (Dolls from Heaven), Luciana, Addy, Kaya, Rose (Magic Attic), Odette (Vanage Kristelle), and Blaire.
