Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moving parts! So true to the times! Kit's Typewriter Set is a timeless piece, and is just perfect for Kit's time. I remember learning to type on a machine like this - it was old, but I loved the mechanics of it. I sure remember the rolling eraser, too. I (and my students) love that this one has moving parts. The copies of Kit's news sheets are fantastic. I added a piece that I typed and shrunk from my laptop; a paper my mom wrote on a typewriter like this, in the late 1930s. Kit is my favorite doll, and this piece is my favorite of all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kit must have her typewriter! There is so much detail put in with each doll but I would have to say that Kit has some really amazing treasures. We love this typewriter so very much! It’s sturdy and full of detail. If you’re getting the typewriter than you should really get her desk! We hope AG will bring back some of her older accessories since we just started collecting. Pretty please! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This typewriter is terrific! This typewriter is beautifully made and essential to any Kit collection. All of the pieces included in this set are really neat, especially the photo of the "Schnozz". I love that the typewriter "dings", I just wish that it was a little louder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mechanical Marvel This black dye cast metal typewriter would be amazing just to marvel at the detailed miniature vintage version.. But wait! It also moves! You can roll in paper and when you press the keys it starts a typing motion and sounds. The set comes with plenty of paper and a storage box. I had to explain the circular typewriter eraser and the attached brush. I think they get it as an old fashioned way to back space or hit the delete button. A must have for girl-reporter Kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Endless Creativity I got Kit's typewriter set, reporter set, and desk for my ninth birthday almost ten years ago. They have held up excellently, and provided endless hours of fun. I stopped playing with my dolls and put everything on display several years ago, but even after five years of being my favorite toy and getting daily use it looks brand new. While I am in college earning a degree in English and journalism minor, I think that girls with any interest would love it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Single Panel of Keys My daughter looked forward to receiving this item for some time. It looks authentic, and the fact you can put the copy in the typewriter is fun. The only disappointment was the fact the keys don't move individually. Rather they all function as a single panel of keys. I imagine this may be the most realistic option given the intricacies of a typewriter, but we felt it was significant enough to mention in case that makes a difference for purchasing for someone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable and so realistic! I bought this for my granddaughter for her 9th birthday. She has been wanting it for 3 years, but I was waiting till she (and her little sister) were old enough to take care of it. You should have seen her face when she opened her gift! She lit up like a Christmas tree! This little typewriter did not disappoint. It is beautifully crafted, and so very realistic and fun to play with! She and all the girls were enthralled with it. They immediately set to playing with it, sitting Kit at the desk with it and helping her "type" a story. It was with great delight that my granddaughter discovered that it also "dings" when time to return the carriage. I showed her how the old typewriters worked and told her all about the little eraser and brush that came with it....that could not be cuter! In addition, the little box and accessories are exquisitely made. Thank you, American Girl, for making this little dream come true for MY little doll!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic and lots of details to the whole set I got this set years ago and was astounded at how similar the typewriter was to my grandmother's. It is very functional: paper can be inserted and will slowly be rolled up the more you press the rows of keys down, causing the carriage to move to the left until the typewriter dings and you press the lever to make the carriage return. This set also comes with several articles that Kit writes in her stories, blank paper, a photograph of Kit's favourite baseball player, an eraser that really rolls (at least in the old set that I have), and a nice little box to keep everything in (helps make it easier not to lose parts). I love how many of these items come straight out of Kit's stories and how many moving parts they all have too. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Typewriter is everything! Amazing accessory for a doll! Literally seemed to grab my daughter when we saw this typewriter on display in the store! What? Kit writes?! This item hooked my daughter into loving this new to her character Kit! My daughter is a budding writer who loves to create books and loves reading books, and this character fits perfectly into my daughter's loves! I can't get over how quality this piece is, and all the items in this set. My daughter plays with this item like it's a real typewriter, and it's sturdy enough for my 4yo son to join in the fun! One of our absolutely favorite doll items to date, and probably will be for a long time! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic Typewriter! My daughter received this as a gift to add to her growing Kit collection-- and I thought at first it wouldn't be that great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed My daughter received this as a Christmas gift and while it appears heavy and durable, I'm disappointed to read in other reviews that the typewriter is supposed to move and ding. Not sure if ours is damaged or what, but ours does not really move when typing and I haven't heard any dings, etc. While most of the typewriter is made out of heavy metal, ours just doesn't seem to function properly and has unfortunately remained in the box and not played with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Historical item - for Collectors Well, i consider myself a collector and a connoisseur of all the toys and especially AG historical lines and products. I think Kit's typewriter is an amazing item and for the AG buyers and collectors i urge you to buy this set before it is retired. It is a serious collector's set, and not a play set. I am a bit disappointed in fellow AG buyers who give this set a negative review. No, typewriter is not a ball not a jumping rope and not an outfit -it is a historically accurate amazing miniature metal version of an 'old school' typewriter and the quality and detail is amazing. It goes perfectly well with Kit's roll top desk and it should be displayed and marveled at like a work of art. If you want a lot of play value, you should buy Kit's miniature Golf set (which i will as well as soon as it is back in stock). Very unfair when buyers give a negative connotation to an amazing item or a set when they don't understand the true value of something. Thanks! Buy it and enjoy it! It is a fun set and should be appreciated as well. I recommend it! Great price for the quality and value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great "settings" prop I'd be hesitant to give this to a younger girl, but for older girls (who can be more gentle with it) looking to set a scene of Kit's room, or generally re-enact one of Kit's books, this is great! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great detail We bought Kit's typewriter set in the store. It is adorable! The detail is great. It was a little hard for our 7 year old to load the paper at first, but she got the hang of it after we showed her how it worked. It seems a little fragile which is why I only gave it a 4 on play value. It is just a tiny version of the old typewriters and our daughter loves pretending Kit is actually typing on the preprinted pages. Great purchase! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique I feel like Kit may have the most interesting collection out of all the dolls, and this set is one of the reasons why. It's a very nice quality, and unique to what you'd generally find when shopping for 18in. doll accessories. It is aesthetically pleasing and very representative of Kit's time period. It is however a bit delicate, and for that reason I'm taking off a star. Since AG is generally catered to young girls, it should be known that this piece is less of a toy and more of a prop for display or photography. Toying around with it too much could lead to damage easily. I do love the extra pieces this set comes with as well, even though the print on the newsletters is difficult to read. I recommend it overall, but a buyer would have to decide whether it's worth purchasing at the current price or not, given the play value. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute, but not a toy at all. My 9 year old daughter got this for Christmas. It is cute, and a nice prop to go with Kit. However, it is very fragile and has almost no play value. The "typing" doesn't really work well at all, and the carriage return lever was popping off frequently by about 6 months despite her best attempts to take gentle care of it. Keeping it safe wasn't made super convenient by the sizing of Kit's Desk & the typewriter though - the typewriter does not fit in the roll top desk with the top closed (it may not have been meant to per the books - it's been a while since I read them - but it certainly would have been convenient), so my daughter stores it in a drawer of her nightstand. Upon looking at the lever, it appeared that the rivet was just low quality, and its soft metal deformed a little bit every time the lever was used until the rivet no longer held the arm in place adequately. I just removed the rivet and am still looking for a small enough screw & nut to hold the lever in place at least decoratively. This accessory is not well-suited for little girls who still play with their dolls; it is better suited for a decorative piece in a doll scene. Quite a shame, because just a slightly higher quality of workmanship and this would be an awesome time period piece. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase This was purchased at a recent trip to the american girl store. Upon arriving home it was opened up immediately. Overall american girl did a lovely job with this product. I would say it is age appropriate, but i would recommend this to older children as there are paper pieces. American girl made the typewriter look as though it would have been in Kits era. The only thing i do not like is that american girl put a backspace button onto the typewriter. There is no backspace button on a typewriter. Overall i really like the set and i recommend to buy this. It is totally worth the $50.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of Kit's coolest sets. I received Kit's typewriter set as a gift over a decade ago as a child. While this set has changed since then, and I have the "holly berry bunch," the typewriter - the center of this set - is what matters. The typewriter... what to say... other than how it is one of the coolest historical pieces of Kit's. The fact that you can actually make the keys "click" and move the roller makes this piece so much fun! If you are a Kit collector, then this is a must-have, in my opinion. Since the pieces of the typewriter are so small and delicate, and paper pieces are included, I wouldn't recommend this for younger children, but at age 10 I fell in love with this set and have loved it ever since into my adult collecting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute....but beware, it is fragile... This is an adorable accessory for Kit! It moves, like a real typewriter, and it sounds like one too! It is tempting to "type" and pretend to use it with a doll. Just use caution as it gets stuck and may not work properly after a short time. It seems this is not meant to be played with but rather to look at or sit at a table or desk #it is a little too big for Kit's desk#. The flaw was a disappointment to my 9 year old. She is very careful with her AG accessories but still wants to play with them. The typewriter arm stopped working correctly after 3 times using it. AG did however send a new one out ASAP!! This one will have to sit on a doll desk and look nice. It is pretty pricey for not being able to use the cool features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Very Best Accessory in Kit's Collection My daughter got Kit's typewriter as a Christmas gift four years ago and loves it so much! The quality of the typewriter is amazing- it looks and feels like a real typewriter. The main frame of the typewriter is metal and even after being played with for a few years now, it still looks new! The keys are metal and make a clacking sound when pressed and the typewriter "dings" when it hits the end of a row. We just wish it could actually print the typed letters! Out of all of the American Girl accessories she has gotten over the years, Kit's typewriter is my daughter's very favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! So realistic - it's like they transported a 1930s typewriter into 2015!!! The typewriter is AMAZING - no ink, in case anyone was wondering. *Doll-owners under 8 years of age, beware: It's fragile! Kit's typewriter could easily break. Remember that the ones back in the day, the real ones, were easily breakable, too. The eraser is cute but small. I like that they have one of Kit's newspapers in there as well as several blank pieces of paper. The green box completes the set. The photo from Kit's stories throws everything together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully detailed! This set is really wonderful. It makes the ding! sound and the keys move when you press on them. They do move all together so not 100% authentic. I love that the papers are typed on and some are blank. The eraser and photo are also fun additions. It is probably geared towards older girls who won't tear/crinkle the paper or be too rough with the typewriter. Authentically detailed accessory for Kit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very detailed set This is a very detailed set and the typewriter is quite impressive. At first I wasn't sure if we were using it correctly and was afraid that we might break it but it does appear that you are supposed to push it back at the end of each row. The little box with the papers is cute as well. I'm not sure if it has as much play value for us as some of the other sets but it is definitely made well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love! I was thrilled when this piece was brought back from retirement! The attention to the details of the typewriter and eraser is great! And we love the papers and photo that have come with the set! Bring back more of Kit's line, but keep the integrity of her era! I promise not all of us collectors want everything modernized!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Little Confusing This set is super cute, a must-have for any Kit or Ruthie fan. The pieces are adorable, especially the Hard Times News. However, it can be a little confusing to figure out how to use some of the pieces. Have YouTube on hand to look up a video explaining this set, and you're good to go for playtime fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I have wanted this for so long. I have Kit's desk, but when I was ready to purchase the type writer, it had been retired. So disappointed! I was just thrilled when AG brought it back. My hubby got it for me for our 39th anniversary. That was our plan, and it was hard to wait for the two months. It looks great on Kit's desk. It is made of metal, it's heavy and has some working parts. I am so happy to finally have it. Thank you AG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Typewriter! I have been wanting this typewriter ever since I received Kit for a birthday present several years ago. I finally decided to purchase it, after seeing it reappeared from the archives! You will not regret this purchase...the craftsmanship is amazing, the typewriter actually works (doesn't actually type but it moves back and forth when "typing" just like a real typewriter would). The green box, the little reports, and the eraser are a nice touch.
