Erin Go Bragh! Failte! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! Mimi is all decked out in her Irish outfit just for the occasion! When I saw this set available, I had to have it. Mimi is the only one of my dolls to actually go to Ireland, so it’s only natural that she got to wear it.
I LOVE the clothes. I wasn’t so sure about those yellow tights though, but once you put them on, they are no longer an in your face yellow and very tolerable.
The green cardigan is by far my favorite part of the whole set, but I really do love it all. And you can never have too many hiking style boots. (At least my gang can’t.)
The t-shirt is awesome with all the different Irish related logos. Somewhere I saw a comment that made me just shake my head. It was along the lines of “the only people that would wear an Ireland t-shirt are tourists.” UH–NO KIDDING! That’s the idea of this set as well as all the other sets. And actually, I have friends in Ireland who have been known to sport an Ireland t-shirt every so often too, so that thinking is wrong. I really like the skirt too, this whole set has endless mix and match potential!
The accessories are cute too, but I wasn’t as wowed by them as I was by the outfit. The bag is nice, but a little bit cheap looking. The postcards are cute. The shortbread cookie tin is nice…but the cookies are huge!!!!
Shortbread cookies ARE NOT as big as your hand. I’ve yet to ever see one this big. Usually they are a nice small biscuit, the perfect size for dunking in your tea or coffee. Ugh. Oh well. I may have to make some more realistic sized ones to put in this tin instead.
I’m loving this new travel theme, it’s all super cute! Having been to Ireland numerous times, these were definitely must have sets. The England sets, I’m not as sold on. I showed them to a friend from Wales and her comment was that the accessories were good, but the dress was a swing and a miss, it’s more Scotland than Ireland. The other sets are places I’ve not traveled too or are not as familiar with, so I’m not sure about the accuracy on those, but I think the idea of promoting travel and education about other countries is great and I hope that AG maybe adds some more to it. Maybe some Latin America? Portugal? China? Where would you like to see them go next?
