* This item is paired with Molly's Stage and Screen and associated with the movie, Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front. Molly's Velvet Theater Seats were introduced in 2006 and retired in 2008. *
These are A+ on authenticity!
They are very plush and very soft. The "movie theater" seen in my album shows the seats in use. I love them so much that I ordered another set. I plan on building a tier so that it looks more like a real theater. They are absolutely awesome. I just wish that the popcorn had seperate pieces in it for a popcorn fight, and where's the soda?
I couldn’t wait any longer and was really afraid that the Theater Seats would be one of the items that sold out first this year, so I went ahead and got them. For the price ($40), the Velvet Theater seats have got to be one of the best values from AmericanGirl.com!
The box they arrived in was huge and very well packed. When I pulled them out of the box my daughter gasped. She had no idea I had ordered them and I made it very clear that the Theater Seats belong to me. They are very heavy and well made.
The seats themselves are a beautiful shade of deep red and the velvet is very nice. The seats fold down when a doll sits on them and fold back up when she gets back up. Love it. It also came with doll popcorn, licorice ropes, two paper tickets and Molly and Emily trivia cards.
We don’t have Molly or Emily, but Marisol and Kit are reading to watch their friends take to the screen on Sunday!

Velvet Theater Seats Item# USAA $40
"Molly and her friends often went to the movies to watch feature films and to get news about the war and other current events. This set features everything they need to enjoy the show:
* Two quilted velvet theater seats that even flip up! * Two movie tickets, a bag of pretend popcorn to share, and pretend licorice whips"
Great set of doll furniture! The seats are very thick plush and made to look (and act) just like real theater seats. When the doll is not on them they fold up!
The small bag of popcorn is really paper, but the kernels are plastic. They do not come out of their bag. There are 5 licorice whips that are all stuck together and also two paper tickets. The girls have to share their goodies.
The frames for the seats are metal based with plastic covering the ends and on the feet (to prevent surface scratching?) The construction is so durable.
The sides have engravings on the ends to make them look more authentic.
Two dolls can sit comfortably and enjoy the show together. I love this set and it is well worth the price. Dimensions are W: 17" x H: 14½" x D: 8½". Grade A.

We bought these for DD's birthday and she loves them. I think her stuffed animals sit in them more than her AG dolls. Love that the seats fold up and save space. The only thing I don't like are the little paper tickets. Although they look authentic they wouldn't hold up to play so I've stored them away until she's older.
