Angelina Sheldon is modeling the items for us today. The set includes the leotard, hair accessories, hairstyle card, hoop, and ribbon wand.
The ribbon wand and hoop are pretty cool. A doll can easily hold the wand, and you can probably make her hold the hoop too with some clear elastics and patience. The ribbon stays curly -- it was probably wrapped and heated -- it doesn't have a wire in it or anything.
The hoop opens and becomes smaller for easy storage. Which is nice. A big thin hoop might break easily while stored, so this opening and closing feature avoids that issue.
For McKenna's Practice Wardrobe you got a leo, shorts, tee, shrug, ankle bandage and hair accessories for $34. They could have at least grouped this set with the Team Gear set and charged the same price of $34, instead of a combined $52.
Very pricey. Probably only worth it if you a) Really like McKenna's stuff b) Really like gymnastics for your dolls or c) Collect for the GOTY like we do.
If you just really, really, really, want a long-sleeve performance leotard -- there are handmade sellers who offer them (Etsy) and most are less than $28. And generally they are not fluorescent lemon yellow. ;-)
Thanks for visiting us today!
