I am finally back from D.C.!
I had a great time, and took a lot of photos, which will be posted on my personal blog!
Now onto the review of what I got!
Slow Cooker Dinner Set
First of here is the entire slow cooker, with everything together. It was definitely smaller than it seemed in the catalog, but it has a very nice weight to it, and seems to be of a very high quality.
The control panel is very cute and realistic. You can move the dial from LO to HI, but you can’t press any of the buttons. I like the 2:30 panel, because you can pretend that that is the time left.
You can remove the blue inner lining, and reveal the ‘heating’ element for the slow cooker.
The lid is clear, and I assume it is meant to replicate the glass on human slow cookers. It would be nice if it looked more steamy.
The BBQ sauce is really cute, but it would be nice if the label had nutrition facts on it, for added realism.
There are small speckles on the outside of the bottle, that must have been embedded in the plastic, because the bottle is hollow, and very lightweight.
The napkins are really nothing special, they are sort of thin, though.
The embroidered swirls are nice, and are repeated throughout the set.
The forks are standard American Girl metal forks. The outer prongs are thicker than the inner ones, but I have noticed that before.
The napkins are too small for the forks, which is sort of disappointing, but I can just make my own.
The plates are fairly simple, they just have three thin lines around them. The sizes are like ones that I have in my kitchen.
The potholder is also a bright pink, like the napkins. They also have the embroidered swirls.
The tongs are fairly basic, but will be a very nice addition to my doll’s kitchen!
The rolls are cute, but really, nothing special.
The broccoli had nice detail
The bottom is really nicely realistic.
The milk is fairly basic, I like the pattern on the outside if the glass.
Why does the chicken have grill marks if it was in a slow cooker?
I love the butter dish!
The broccoli and the chicken both fit in, but the lid won’t close once they’re in.
The whole thing sets up nicely into a meal for two.
I really like this set, and would definitely recommend it to anyone considering it!
Rebecca Mini Doll
Here is the doll in the box. I do like the revised bow, though I liked it better when the box looked like the 18-inch one.
Once you take off the lid, the book is stored over the dolls legs. My mini dolls hair looked sort of squashed at this point.
Her outfit is cute, though it is a simplified version of the 18-inch one.
I must say that I like this body better, because it is better for sleeveless things.
I dressed her and styled her hair in two braids tied together.
I REALLY like mini Rebecca
Alright, this is getting really long, so I will do a part two tomorrow. What was your favorite part of my review today?
