Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, yet fun outfit This outfit is pretty simple. The cherry’s are cute as well as the red and white gingham accents on the shirt. It is a very fun casual outfit. The gingham hair tie is a nice touch. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for summer My daughter received this outfit for her Maryellen doll and just loved it! Such a cute summertime outfit and it’s easy to mix & match the shirt or capris with other clothing pieces. Easy to put on and take off although the buttons are a little challenging for bigger hands. Great quality clothing pieces! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality! Just bought this recently. I love the quality of the fabric. The white shirt is beautifully embroidered with red cherrys as is the white shoes. The only disappointment is the pockets on the jeans are not real. The buttons on the shirt and bottom of the pants really gives Maryellen her 50 look. I am so glad to have Maryellen’s play outfit in my collection,thank you American girl for making another beautiful outfit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love this!! I wanted this outfit for years and finally got it last weekend. This is one of the cutest outfits I've ever seen. I love how retro it is, and I love the cherry motifs especially on the shoes. The whole outfit is superior quality and really appropriate for it's era which my mom confirmed, as she was a child in the 50s too and remembers this style from then! We both love this outfit and highly recommend it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versitile I bought this outfit for my Kit doll. I think it looks lovely on her. The shirt is well made and looks darling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very detailed. I bought this outfit when it was on sale, just because it was so cute (we do not have the Maryellen doll (yet)). Everything about this outfit is precious - the embroidered cherries, the shirt trimming, the cropped pants. The only disappointment is that the sale did not include the shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute outfit I bought this at the AG store for my old Kerstin doll to wear. I love the cherry shoes and the button detail on the pants. I like that it's a historical style but not another dress, so it's a little different. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this outfit! I got this outfit for Maryellen when I went to the store for the Nanea Mitchell launch events. It was one of the first outfits I got for Ellie, and am very happy with it. Everything seems very era and character appropriate, and its well made. I love the headscarf, it's actually long enough to tie around her head. It ties in with the trim on the blouse too, which ties in with the shoes. The jeans actually feel like a real pair of jeans! The only minor gripe I would have with it would be that the shoes, while cute, don't feel 100% accurate. I think this outfit would go better with a pair of Keds or a penny loafer type shoe. Other than that, its a wonderful, adorable, historically accurate outfit that I could easily imagine Maryellen wearing in her stories. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable with cute details! This is such an adorable outfit! I think this one is cuter in person than in the pictures. I especially like the detail of red gingham trim on all of the edges of the blouse and the detail stitching on the jeans. I also like how well it fits the doll. It's very appropriate for the 50's but also looks good on my doll mixed with others wearing more contemporary summer clothes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

So much fun to go over to grandma's house and hear story's about how she wore an outfit just like that. And I love how interest my daughter was in learning more about her time period. So not only is this one of her favorite summertime outfits, she also got an amazing covo with her grandma about her when she was a little girl. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute and perfect for spring and summer! I don't have Maryellen in my collection yet (yet) but I loved the look of this from the moment I saw it and knew it would work really well with the styles my dolls like to wear. Every piece in this set is really adorable and good quality! The gingham ribbon is thick enough and long enough to tie all the way around the head, it's just that there's not quite enough length to tie in a bow. But if you're just using it to tie hair back like in the picture, it's perfect! This set is really adorable and I recommend it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Match Game I love all the '50's details that went into creating this put together look. The '50's was an era that was all about matching from head to toe. The checked hair bow matches the sleeveless blouse trim, the white blouse matches the white topstitching and white buttons on the pedal pushers( the term Capri pants was used for resort wear back then, never children's clothing), The embroidered cherry on the blouse is repeated down on the shoes and the whole ensemble is pulled together by the red buttons down the front of he blouse. It doesn't get more '50's than that. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Cherry On (the) Top I love this cheery, cherry outfit for Ellie! This classic 50s set is a must for authentic play &/or display! The pedal pushers were easily put on and fit nicely. The attention to the smallest details makes this outfit so CUTE on Ellie :) I find that when dressing dolls with a front opening top it's easiest to gently place the arms back a little & aim the sleeve or arm openings while gently sliding the clothing up toward the shoulders. (When I dress dolls with back openings I gently position the arms forward and aim accordingly while gently inching the clothing upward. I also try to fold the velcro section outward to try to avoid any potential snagging on the dolls underwear (NO PERMA-BRITCHES!), tights or even on the new body type-(my Ellie has the older body type but I'm still careful ) which does seem to want to snag on velcro.) When putting on doll britches I aim both feet in and gently inch upward paying attention to the bum to get the clothing over the little hump area. Sometimes I wonder if understanding how to better place clothing on a doll might help with younger &/or newer AG fans as it does make a little bit of difference on how an outfit fits & affects customer satisfaction :) I've included a picture with my review because one picture is worth...well with AG REWARDS about 5 points per review! Are you an AG REWARDS MEMBER? I wasn't paid or given extra points for that plug lol! I'm GRATEFUL that AG now adds on 5 points for product reviews. What a nice perk! THANK YOU VERY MUCH AG :) Yes, that's incentive but it doesn't and won't change the fact that I'll share an honest review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fun & cute The little details are what make this outfit. From the striped piping on the blouse, all the way down to the buttons at the bottom of the pants. What makes it is tying our doll's hair into the swoopy ponytale and wrapping it in the tie. Any doll will look straight from the 50's with it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute outfit, but not great value This outfit is cute but definitely not worth the price. I had a hard time getting the pants onto my pre-Beforever dolls, which was super disappointing. I haven't put it on Maryellen yet, but I think it will look cuter on her because it will fit better. I wish all AG outfits fit older dolls. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cheery cherries The shirt is just as cute as it looks in the picture, with velcro fastenings on the front and neat trim details. The fabric is a nice smooth cotton, light but not too thin. The pants were a bit of a surprise. They are completely stretchy, kind of like capri length jeggings, with pretend stitched pockets. They're easy to pull on for children, I guess, and maybe most kids don't miss having real little zippers, belts, and pockets in their doll clothes. The shoes feel exactly like the little pumps that come with the new Truly Me lavender Meet dress and with quite a few AG outfits now. They slip on easily, and the cherry trim is a nice touch. A fun playsuit for Maryellen! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use It is very simple for little girls to dress their dolls with Maryellen's Play Outfit: velcro top and elastic pants. That is really a plus! The only thing I would change is making the waist elastic a little bit stronger so it does not fall off after a lot of rough use (5 and under girls)... Other than that, all the items match very well together and do not need to only be used on Maryellen. I personally love the fact that it is so historically accurate, but can also be used as modern day outfit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this play set! I had to get this play set. The cherry shoes are so detailed and cute! They really make this outfit. I don't have a Mary Ellen. I bought it for Kit and she looks so cute in it! I think it would work for any doll. It's easy to put on and very nice quality as well. You can pair the capri pants with an AG tee shirt and make it a modern outfit. I love having extra options!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The top is perfect! When Maryellen was released, I was thrilled. I'm a Mary Ellen, and I wore clothes like this. The rule was, if you're going to make a top (and this would have been hand made), you needed matching trim and you absolutely needed something matching for the hair. Often we wore little triangle scarves, trimmed with blouse trim. It had to match. Matching was very big then. Yes, we would have worn this with denims (ours had real pockets). But these were not capris. Capris back then were very slender pants that stopped just above the ankle. We would have worn cut-off jeans or we would have folded our pant legs to this height. We would have worn tennis shoes without socks, which means our feet were pretty stinky. I remember seeing cute embroidered slip-ons like these, but they were worn by my elderly aunts and were called house slippers. The matching pretty much stopped with the top and the hair/head accessory. These were comfy clothes. I bought my sister one of these outfits, too, because we often wore clothes like these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit I am so happy that I got this outfit. It is a great fit and a great look. The pants go on easily, and can be removed without the scare of removing a leg with it. Some AG pants are so tight, but not these. The piping on the blouse brings back memories, The shoes are adorable and go on easily and are not too loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maryellen`s play outfit The detail on the shirt of red and white check trim along with the red buttons and the cherries on the shirt which match the cherries on the shoes tie everything in so nicely. The white trim and white buttons on the side of the jeans just makes the outfit . The only thing is the jeans are hard to get on the doll other than that the product is excellent. The shirt fits great , the red and white check ribbon for the dolls hair is the perfect touch to the outfit. Good quality of material in both the shirt and pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mary Ellen's Play Outfit I absolutely love this outfit. It's so cute and so 50s. The colors and patterns on the fabric are perfect. I don't have ME yet, however it does look very cute on Kit and other dolls. Very pretty outfit. I recommend this item to both kids or adult doll collectors. Easy to put on and off. I love the hairpiece...very cute and perfect to the time period. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite AG outfits This is one of the cutest outfits that AG has produced and it's very well made. The top is a bit sheer and velcros in the front, making it easy to get on. The pants have a stretchy elastic waist and the shoes slip on with ease. The gingham hair bow brings the whole outfit together and the cherry motif is the sweetest detail. This is not an outfit to miss! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cherry, Cheery and sweet I love this outfit, Simple yet so colorful! I was on a reserve about buying it since I don't like the fact that the shirt doesn't button but is a Velcro closure. I find that to be a little disappointing and takes the unique appearance away from AG products. I have always loved the tiny details. However, I couldn't pass up this darling outfit and I'm glad I didn't! Her pants have tiny buttons details on the sides and the red piping on the shirt just finished the outfit to perfection. My favorite detail is the cherry on the flats. Too cute! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable outfit Every little girl in the fifties had play clothes, so of course Maryellen needed one too! And this is perfect. From the cute shirt, to the adorable capris (actually, they'd be called pedal pushers), to the hair ribbon, to the shoes (though I do kinda wish they were white Keds-type!) is just adorable, and looks so cute on Maryellen. This is a must-add to your Maryellen collection. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maryellen's Cutest Set I am a sucker for anything with a cherry motif so I have been coveting this set for awhile. I put these play clothes on Maryellen as soon as they arrived in the mail. They clothes are everything I'd hoped they'd be, she looks so cute! The set includes a white sleeveless shirt with red gingham trim on the arm holes, collar and front opening. It opens with Velcro and has buttons as decoration. There is a patch pocket with a cherry appliqued on the front. The capris, or pedal pushers, are a lightweight denim with white decorative stitching and decorative buttons on the outside legs. The side pockets are real pockets. The white ballet flats have a cherry applique on the toes. There is also a red and white gingham hair tie that could also be a headband if you wish. Maryellen's play clothes are easy to put on and would be excellent for a child to enjoy on any of the dolls. It would look just as cute as a modern outfit. If I had to tweak anything, I'd choose real working buttonholes on the blouse, but it really isn't a big deal. My other idea is that Maryellen might have worn a Keds-type tennis shoe as a play shoe. All in all you will not be disappointed if you choose this outfit for yourself or a special little one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheerful Cherry This play outfit is perhaps one of my favorite American Girl playouts. Although they don't do real buttons on outfits anymore, and everything seems to Velcro, I'm okay with it in this too cute for words play set! The top is just precious with red gingham lining and red buttons. The pedal pushers are just so darling, and I'm so so pleased they made the waist elastic! The shoes are perhaps the best part, as they are a sparkling white with a cherry embroidered on the toe, love the gingham hankercheif, as it could either go around the neck or in the hair, I'm super in love with Maryellen's Play Outfit, and I'm very tickled pink about all of the precious cherry accents. I would definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the shoes! My little girl just had to have this outfit for her Maryellen. She insisted that Maryellen needed the cherry shoes. She has dressed Maryellen in this outfit almost every day. I wish the little hair tie was a little bit longer. It's a little difficult to make a cute bow with but it's still super cute. It's versatile enough to use as a headband if tied in a loose knot on top. My little girl has had lots of fun with this outfit and we highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Play Outfit This is a perfect Play Outfit for Maryellen. The Capri pants are perfect for the time period. Also the use of gingham again with the kerchief The cherry design is classic. I think it is much cuter in person

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice, cute shoes, ribbon too short to tie bow This set is just as cute if not cuter than it looks on the computer. The shoes bring the entire outfit together. It's very well made and all around great outfit to own. My 8 year old love it. The hair ribbon is too short to tie a nice bow. You can knot it but we can not tie ours in a bow. Because the ribbon is too short I gave this 4 starts. I feel the ribbon is a big part to the set and it should be longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect 1950's play outfit! These "pedal pushers" are adorable on Maryellen and true to the time period. I should know, since this is close to what I wore as a young child in that decade - only a lot cuter! The short-sleeve shirt is especially cute. Love all the detail and the cherries on both top and shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pedal Pushers.....!!! Of course I had to buy the play outfit that was what we used to call "pedal pushers." Now the modern phrase is "capri pants," My Mary Ellen doll had to have these along with her poodle skirt. Love the cherry designs on the shirt & shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cute and playful outfit! Maryellen's play outfit is very cute and playful! The only little problem is that the pockets on the jeans are stitched but that isn't very important! Top-The top is a sleeveless white blouse with red gingham all around it. It has 4 red buttons on the front and velcro just underneath it. It has a red and green cherry pattern on the right that reappears on her shoes. Pants-The trousers are blue denim with 2 white buttons ont the side at the bottom. They have elastic at the back so it is easy to put on. Shoes-The shoes are white flats with the red and green cherry pattern that was on the shirt. Hair attachment-The hair attachment is just a long red and white gingham ribbon that goes with the shirt. This outfit is a must-have with Maryellen's collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect 50's Pedal Pushers! Adorable play outfit perfect for 1950's! Embroidered cherries on top and shoes nice quality and representative of era. Lovely accents with contrast stitching on bottom and trim on top. Dark denim pedal pushers perfect for ME's frequent bike rides. And, nice coordinating hair tie. Only negative would be that pockets are stitched illusion. Otherwise, great addition to ME collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable and Authentic This outfit is just too cute. It is even more precious in person. Love the pants, shirt and especially the shoes. This outfit is very much what a little girl would have worn in 1954.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO SO Cute!! This outfit knocks me out! The colors are crisp and bright. The blouse has perfect bias piping around the collar and down the front and around the bottom, and it is really well sewn and the seams of the piping meet perfectly. The cherry motif on the front of the shirt and on each shoe is excellently done and just the perfect accent! The pockets on the capris are just ornamental...but done very nicely and the buttons at the hems are just darling. I highly recommend this outfit! The shoes go on nicely but also don't fall off easily. I highly recommend this for every age child because it's durable. I bought this for myself...but will happily share it with my grandchildren. Sonali is wearing mine right now and looks super in it. :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable outfit!! The cherry play outfit is adorable!! I love the embroidered cherries on the top and shoes!! The top is finished with a nice gingham check. The only thing that I would want different would be for the pants pockets to be real!! There is only stitching on the pants to show where the pocket is. Overall I do think you get a lot of nice +'s with this outfit for the price!
