I’ve been checking out the local Target stores for some of the newer sets. It’s been slim pickings in our area, but I did come across a pair of shoes that I hadn’t seen before. They aren’t even on the Our Generation website for some reason, but neither were the tennis shoes that I picked up for Louisa at Christmas time. Not sure what it up with that because I’ve noticed reviews of other items not on their site on other blogs. Hmmm…someone needs to work on that!
Regardless, I had to get these when I saw them. I’m a sucker for doll shoes to begin with and there is just something about tennis shoes (or trainers as our British and European friends refer to them) that get me every time. And not just for my dolls, if you looked in my own closet, you’d gasp!
Aren’t these fun?! I loved that they were denim and trimmed with the bright pink. I know that we all complain about the overabundance of pink in the AG spectrum, but this is just the right amount.
Here we are out of the package. You can see how they are also lined in pink, a nice added touch! However, when I turned them around, I discovered something I wasn’t expecting…
Flowers on the sides! I thought they were just a plain pair of tennis shoes, but they aren’t. Why in the world they were packaged so that you couldn’t see this accent is beyond me. Fortunately it wasn’t a deal breaker, I like the trim, but for some people I can see where this could be an issue. Strange, isn’t it?
I give these an A+, they are well made and fit perfectly. While the flowers were unexpected, they aren’t a deal breaker in this case, but I’m glad I was able to review them for others so you can be prepared! At $6.99 I think these are more than reasonably priced. The fact that they aren’t yet on the OG website makes me wonder what else might be coming out. Did anyone else happen to catch a couple of new kitchen accessory sets on the Target website? I saw them one day and I’ve been kicking myself for not ordering them at the time because they have since disappeared, ugh!
