Julie’s Hoop Dreams – Product Review

It’s pretty rare for me to see something in the AG catalog and actively pursue it.  Sure, there’s endless neat things for the dolls, but most of it I can carry on without.  Julie’s basketball outfit was not one of those things, however!

Every now and then I will check Amazon to see what is available for American Girl dolls via Prime shipping.  Amazon has most of the items for Melody, Julie, Maryellen, Gabriela… and probably more I haven’t searched on.

So, when Julie’s basketball outfit came up on Amazon, one click had it on the way to my house in two days!  It arrived in the usual Beforever box.

I hadn’t fully appreciated that the trim on the outfit was such a cute green and white stripe.

It comes with 70s style tube socks, and thick ribbon ties for your pigtails, naturally.  Shoes fit with ease!  It also comes with a basketball that is somewhat useless since Julie can’t hold it.

Never mind about the basketball, though, when you look this awesome!  Julie’s open for a pass!

I liked the careful sewing as the trim runs around the armhole.  The outfit it soft and comfy and easy to get on and off.  Definitely appropriate for kids.  This outfit is $34.00 new on Amazon.

I hope to bring you some stories about Julie and her hoop dreams soon.

BeForever 2017

The books that previously sounded like Felicity’s story are now listed in a 3 book set on Amazon and are called “BeForever 2017.”  The theme listed for the book is “Colonial Life.”  So curious to see if this is Felicity coming out of retirement or a new character. If Kathleen Ernst and Valerie Tripp are both on the project, I have the highest hopes!  Books in February and doll in fall like Melody??
