Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love that it makes my daughter feel " normal" We visited an AG store in Tennessee. My daughter saw the kit and was so excited for her doll to be like her. I think it made her feel like she fit in. We used some of her supplies to help it adhere better [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very detailed My daughter is obsessed with this kit. Her doll Lyla is diabetic and we never leave the house without her supplies. The kit includes a glucometer and an insulin pump both of which are very realistic. There is also a little finger pricker and an insulin syringe. Both are safe of course but look like they could do the job. Included is a little vial of glucose tablets. The kit is very complete and realistic. I'm glad I bought it and my daughter was thrilled to receive it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completed Thrilled!!!!! My 5 yr old daughter was just diagnosed with T1D 2 weeks ago. March 10th was her birthday and she wanted AG items. I found this and she absoletuly was overwhelmed to get this kit. Now she tells everybody that her doll is T1D also and practices with her doll at the same time as her check. What a wonderful way to include this with your products. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs a little work, but still awesome. I am a type 1 DM with a pump and was an avid AG fan as a child. I still have all of my AG things from 28-30 years ago. I bought this for my daughter’s WelliWisher, but also since I thought it was pretty cool. My daughter thought it was great. However, the tubing is easily dislodged from the insertion part. I tried to use a glue gun to make it stay better, but it becomes disconnected constantly. Unfortunately, it fell off while we were out and about and the pump is gone. It was nice for the couple of days Willa had it. My daughter liked that her doll was like mom. I’d suggest super gluing the tubing into the insertion site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Impression I got this as a present for my daughter and she loved it! She enjoys all the different supplies and plays with it daily. The bag was a little smaller than I expected, but she loves it! The circle came off of the pump but she stuck it on and it works like new.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed I love the idea of this so I got it for my daughter, who has T1D, for Christmas. However, the infusion set will not not stick to the doll with the adhesives provided. We tried three times and could not get it to stay on. My daughter figured out another way to attach it but I could tell she was disappointed after initially being so happy when she opened it. Everything else is great though [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TYPE 1 GIRLS WILL LOVE THIS We got this for my daughter as soon as it came out! She is so happy for her doll to have "accessories" that are like her supplies. The pump tube doesn't stay in, but a little extra tape is worth using. We would love an expanded set with more diabetes supplies! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from inspiring I think this is a wonderful addition .It not only is a good teaching tool but allows the child to feel normal. not so different. So many children have diabetis and adults and it teachs the importance of taking care of yourself and inspires others to understand what the person deals with every day. thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love all the details! I bought this set a few weeks ago because I have a brother with Type 1 diabetes. When it arrived, I immediately compared his kit to AG’s. AG’s set is incredibly accurate! I love all the details they put into each product especially this one. You can tell they took time to make this like a real diabetes kit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite purchase My 8 year old Type 1 was diagnosed last December so we purchased this kit for her for Christmas. The look on her face when she opened it was priceless! She’s getting her pump in the next couple of weeks and has kept her doll’s pump for the occasion! In the beginning, she was not happy with all the injections and testing but doing the same with her doll made it much easier. Thanks AG! We love the diabetic kit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can never teach someone enough about diabetes! I have a 38 year old daughter who got 2 of the original American Girls dolls as a child. She has the entire line of accessories for her dolls, and has cherished them ever since. Each year on our birthdays and on Mother's Day, we go to the AG store and have lunch. We love to look over the new items, and when we saw this, we both had to have one. I am a type II insulin dependant diabetic. Yes, we exist, so this not just a product for type I diabetics. I use a pump, and even though I don't have a doll, I could not resist buying it. I have it displayed near my pump supplies basket, and get lots of comments on it. It usually elicits questions from friends, and I can use the tiny items to explain how a pump works and all the steps a diabetic must go through just to stay healthy and on track. Thank you AG for this wonderful product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for T1 kids! I bought this for my T1 daughter a few months after she was diagnosed and she squealed and hugged me! She was so excited that her doll could be like her! The only issue is that she misplaced the tube that attaches the sensor to the pump so it would be helpful if that couldn't come off. Otherwise, she loves this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing!!! I bought this as a gift for my 10 year old niece who has type 1 diabetes. She was diagnosed just over a year ago when she had a horrible stomach flu which led to her being hospitalized & in a coma for 2 days due to Ketoacidosis. Through her eyes, Her entire life literally changed over night. She went to sleep a "normal" 9 year old & woke up diabetic, having to completely change every aspect of her life. Being the only child in her school system who is diabetic, she has felt very alone through all of this other than with immediate family. As soon as I saw this kit, I knew that I had to get it for her! She was so happy when she opened it today & saw what it was! She was just put on the insulin pump a few months ago. This kit has that & literally everything that she uses or needs to control her own diabetes. Her American Girl dolls are very important to her so she is very excited to use these & share her day to day life with her dolls!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've dreamed of this since I was a little girl... I love this! I've had type 1 diabetes since I was 7. I always dreamed of a set like this for my AG dolls. Even though I'm 34 now I still had to have it, to share with my 9 year old daughter and also because the set is simply so cute. My favorite pieces are the mini glucose tabs and the insulin pen that clicks like a real one. Thanks AG for fulfilling my doll dreams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of diabetes care kit I purchased 35 kits for diabetes camp. I was a bit confused about the stickers for "personalization" so I called customer service and they couldn't tell me. After looking at it closer, I realized it was an insulin pump skin. I called customer service back and suggested they add to the description of the product. I nearly threw them away because I thought they were weird for stickers. My only complaint is that there is no discount for purchasing so many. Camp hasn't happened yet but I am sure they will love it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product - And Not Just For Diabetics! My daughter has a genetic disorder called Noonan Syndrome, and part of her treatment is growth hormone therapy in the form of daily injections. We purchased this Diabetes Care Kit, and many of its components can be used as growth hormone therapy! My daughter loves giving Rebecca a shot every night, just like she gets herself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AG, You did it again!! My daughter loves AG! I am in nursing school and I teach her a little here and there after class. She turns that around on her dolls and I can hear her "taking care" of them. She has them in a cast, wheelchair, using crutches, and attending an ortho appointment for braces! When she saw the diabetes care kit, she just had to have it. Now she is able to help her dolls when they become hyper and hypoglycemic. I taught her how to use the equipment and now she checks their sugar levels all the time! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such an amazing gift! We saw that this was going to be released and were over the moon excited to get it. Our daughter is 10 and was diagnosed type 1 when she was 4. She just loves all of her American Girls and accessories. One thing we always wanted, was to make her feel like any other kid especially carrying and wearing a pump and pack. How awesome that her doll also now wears one and carries a pump pack and meter. She just loves this product!! Thank you American Girl!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pump problem and could be more educational. When I found out that American Girl makes this kit, I was surprised and told my daughter who has Type One. She was excited because her doll is also diabetic ;) One problem with the kit...the pump doesn't stay on. The stickers just don't stick. This is sort of disappointing for her. We also can't figure out what some of the stickers are for. One thing she loves, though is the insulin pen, because she uses one too! The thing she loves about it is that you can actually click the pen for correct units! Overall this is a great product for kids who are diabetic. One thing to mention, though, is that there is no explanation of what the things in the kit are, so if you're getting it for someone who doesn't have diabetes it's sort of pointless unless you have direct knowledge of the condition. From an educational perspective, it would be nice if it came with a quick overview of the condition and the way it's managed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The pump is the problem. So I have had a Diabetic doll .( For videos) with diy pump so I was astounded when ag released this Beause my doll would have a realistic pump.The cord on the pump comes off the "neddle' the cirle easily. So easy fix buy super glue.Also the adhesive stickers stuck .I would recommend double sided tape for that .I didn't return only Beause the rest of the set was amazing.So I would recommend to friend who has super glue and double sided tape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute for girls who can relate to the product. We got this to educate my daughter about her grandmothers illness, so she really didn't grasp the full use of each of the items and what they were for. The items are small and the stickers tear easily and don't stay on well. I would say this is more appropriate for someone who better understands what each items purpose is. Even though we tried to teach her, she only uses a couple of the items in her Dr/Vet sets. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter was just diagnosed w/ Type 1 Diabetes My two daughters (age 10 and 8) LOVE all things American Girl. We were all shocked a few weeks ago when my 10 year old was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I have to say, she has been amazing and strong. I have been on the internet constantly searching for all the information I can about diabetes. Knowing all the unique sets AG has to offer for their dolls, the thought crossed my mind...I wonder if they have anything specific for T1D. WOW - I was so excited when I saw this product. I purchased one for each of my daughters. They were both so excited when they received it. My 10 year old even said she thought she might cry with excitement. The joy she had as she took out each piece and could relate to everything is indescribable. Special bonus points that the insulin pen lid comes off and you can turn the dial like her pen!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH AMERICAN GIRL!!!! This product brought so much joy to our girls at a time that they needed some!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real to life I bought the AG Diabetic kit for my daughter because we have a diabetic dog. Her older sister also loves it. She wanted a diabetes test kit for her stuffed dog So she could test him. The smile on her face is worth every penny. This kit included everything she needs to be a great caretaker for her diabetic stuffed dog. this kit is a great training tool for kids to become comfortable with diabetes and testing. while my daughters are too young to do real diabetic testing on our diabetic dog, they are learning the skills to help a pup in the future. Thank you for making this kit. I even think our diabetic dog likes to watch the stuffed dog get tested. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So worth it! I recently bought a doll and the Diabetes kit for my 23 year old daughter. As a child she always wanted an American Girl doll but, I was never able to get her one. Here recently she heard about the Diabetes kit and loved the idea of a doll with Diabetes. My daughter was diagnosed in 2011at the age of 18 with Type 1 and it has changed her life so much. She wrote, illustrated and published a children's book about type 1 for her thesis project in college. She uses it to go into children's classrooms and help their peers understand what they deal with on a daily basis. She just days ago passed her exam and is now officially a Registered Dietitian. I bought her this doll as a gift because it was a childhood dream and I thought she could use it when sharing her book and also in her practice as a Dietitian and Diabetes Educator down the road. She absolutely loves the doll and the kit, it turned her into a child again. This product is so awesome and I think it is wonderful that children with Diabetes can now have a doll that is like them. Thank you, American Girl for this amazing product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This was an amazing product not only because it made me feel a whole lot better about T1D but also because i could show my friends and cousins {who are afraid of needles} what I have to do every day with out them freaking out. The only suggestion is to make the kit into different colors and make the sticker a little more durable for play because they sometimes fell off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Accessory EVER by AG! As a type 1 diabetic mom, having a type 1 diabetic daughter for 17 years now, I purchased this for my neice - or my surrogate daughter as I like to call her!! It helped her to understand the device my daughter wear and I wear daily, further explaining how and why we get insulin through a pump was much easier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! This is an awesome product! My granddaughter was 3 years old when she was diagnosed with T1D a year ago. It's very important for kids particularly to feel accepted by the people around them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best gift ever My daughter received this gift for her birthday and once she got it she couldn't stop playing with it. She thought it was very realistic because her aunt has diabetes and she always helps her. She hooked it onto her doll and the insulin pump was very good quality. The stickers held it on for 3 days and the stickers to decorate it made it very personal because she could personalize it. I think this would be very good if you have someone in your life with this disease if you don't it would still be a very good gift even if there is no one in your family with the disease. It would be very fun for them to play with because it is really realistic. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kit For Dolls I think it's great that this is available for the dolls, now there is something for dolls with Diabetes. Girls who have Diabetes now have something for their dolls too, although someone who doesn't have it can have this set for their dolls, as well. Nice variety of related items for the doll, and it can help kids learn about the different things used for Diabetes treatment. This would make a great teaching tool. I got this for my doll, & I like it. I added some things to it, as well. I would recommend this set. Thanks, American Girl! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was seven years old and I bought my first AG doll when I was eight. I always wanted my doll to be just like me but when I got older and bought more AG dolls I soon forgot about a diabetes kit. The day before my fourteenth birthday I bought the kit. I love it it's super accurate and adorable! It means a lot to me that American Girl would make this set so thank you! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Overdue!!!! I can't say how happy we are that this product has finally come out. My 8 year old daughter was diagnosed last February with TID, and when she saw this kit, she lit up like a Christmas tree. Her Aunt, who is also a TID, took her to New York specifically for this kit! It makes dealing with this disease just a little more tolerable for her, now that her "Lilly" doll has the same disease she does. Thank you AG!

She made such a big deal about it that my 4 yr old son (who does NOT have diabetes) asked when he could get a kit and suggested that he could help clean the house to earn it. Who could say no to that?! So, I now have a 2nd kit on backorder so my son can have one to use on his stuffed animals and maybe my house will even be a bit cleaner until mid-May when the backorder is available! Thanks AG! This is a really great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you! Thank you for finally offering this product! I know myself and other type 1 moms have been asking for this for a long time. My daughter heard they would be available January 1st and came in and woke me up (earlier than on Christmas) to ask if we could go online and order one. It means the world to these brave girls who endure so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great addition to the collection! I am a nurse and appreciate all the health themed accessories: crutches (2 styles now!), wheel chair, allergy-free lunch and now this new type 1 diabetes kit! As others have noted, AG could have made different choices regarding items to be included. But I think they actually did a great job in identifying key elements. This is a wonderful set that can be used for both play and educational purposes. I have a set for myself and will be gifting several more! Well done AG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this!! I plan to order one to show my girls what I have to do and use it as a teaching tool for them! I am a type 1 diabetic and wished they had more things like this out when I was diagnosed almost 12 years ago! I have had an American girl doll since I was 5 and that was almost 20 years ago I'm excited to pull her back out and show my girls and have this amazing kit to make it easier to explain my condition to them! Thank you again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it My daughter has type 1 diabetes. She got this in the mail and didn't know what it was. I told her it was a late Christmas gift. She opened it and her face lit up. I loved how well the stickers stuck to the doll and how they gave you stickers to put on the insulin pump. I would suggest that they add a bottle of plastic test strips though. That was the only thing missing from the glucose meter. I would also suggest they add a small bottle of insulin that was the thing missing from the pump. They could also add a bottle of keystone sticks, a glucagon injection, a carb book with carb counts of food they might eat, and an inserter to fake insert the port. My youngest daughter saw the set and asked what if you don't have a pump. She has diabetes as well, but no pump. My other daughter wanted the set but she has injections you just inject. They should make another product just with injections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "FINALLY! My doll is JUST like ME!" My daughter has Type 1 Diabetes and was really excited when she heard about this kit. We are both really happy with it and absolutely love that it comes w so much! ...almost every thing that I have to carry around for her is included in this kit. This kit is also a great way my daughter can help teach her friends about her T1D without it being "sooo boring". Things we love about it: That it comes with a pump AND a pen (my girl isn't on a pump, so she was thrilled abut the pen). - The dail on the pen clicks just like her real pen, so she can count the clicks for the appropriate amount of units. - the blue tip of the lancing device can be pressed into the device so her doll can "really get a finger poke". - if you could write tiny enough you could use the log book. - My only con is that the meter always reads 104. T1D isn't like that. It would be super cool if the meter had a way to click through a few readings, a low, a high and in range. My daughter has this to say: "I think it's really great that American Girl did that because I just feel really happy that my Caroline can be just like me. I do not like the orange gluc tabs because that is the gross flavor. I like that it comes with a pump and a pen because if I decide I want a pump then I already have one for my doll."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is amazing We have owned American Girl dolls for about 16 years or more and I am so impressed with the company for taking this step to make all of our Type 1 kids feel included. American Girl has always been a great product but I am buying this for my future grandkids to play with so they will honor their dad/uncle and all of our warrior girls!!! I think next we need a doll going thru chemo treatments with no hair and a ton of cute hats!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not stick The dots to stick the stuff on the doll are not very high quality. They kept moving and falling off of my dolls. But the other stuff was very cute and worked fine.
