Cold weather will be here before we know it! Actually, in this part of the country, it is usually here by now, but we have been having unseasonably warm temperatures. However, you still need to be prepared, so I’ve been looking at doll sized coats. I saw this one on the Target website and I thought it was cute, but I held off ordering it in hopes of seeing it in person first. Hubby and I were out and about one day and I ran across it, thought it was adorable, so I went ahead and got it.
Since I usually let the new girl model the outfits, Kanani was the lucky girl who got to try this outfit out first. I think it looks great on her, the fit on all of the pieces was good to excellent.
A not so great view of the back, but the fit is good.
And my favorite part–the collar isn’t attached to the coat, so you can remove it and perhaps even wear it with other outfits!
Let’s look at the pieces individually. First up, the tights.
These tights are really nicely made and fit very well. I’m just a bit confused as to why they threw in a pair of tights with this set! I guess maybe the thinking is that when the weather is colder, you might need these to wear with a skirt. I don’t know. Regardless, I like these a lot.
These are super adorable! They fit AG well, they took minimal work to get them on. I got a kick out of the cord on them to keep them together. That does present a problem though. In order to use them properly, you need to put them on before you put the coat on, and since AG hands are wider than OG hands, the extra bulk made it difficult to get the coat on. Not impossible, but a struggle. Without the mittens, the coat goes on and off easily. So cute though, and I can use them with other coats I have because of their neutral color.
One of my favorite parts, the removable fur collar.
I think the coat looks great either way and I love that someone thought far enough ahead to make this removable. I have a white fur hat that was made for Samantha that would go great with this, I’ll have to dig it out.
Last, but not least, the coat itself!
It isn’t lined, but the type of fleece they used is backed with a shiny material so that it doesn’t get stuck on clothing items when you go to put it on or take it off. Anyone who owns a polar fleece jacket knows what I’m talking about! It is a nice quality of material, and the whole item appears to be well made.
Overall I give this set an A, the boots prevent me from giving it an A+, they just aren’t all that great. But I love the rest of the set, so I didn’t mark it down too much because of them. This set is $17.99 regular retail, I managed to get it for $15.99 on sale. Sometimes it is even cheaper on the website, provided it is in stock. Hopefully the girls won’t fight over this one!
