Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice big storage case Case is big enough to hold most of Gabriela's outfits and accessories, which is very helpful. Great play value with fun pieces to help Gaby write her poetry. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Constructed and Big! My daughter was very happy with the Performance Case. The case is nicely constructed, heavy and rolls well. The case can hold extra items, can daub,e as a table or a sit and chill spot for dolls. The accessories are also well constructed. The mic is very fun as are the headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great case to store things The idea is cute. My daughter loves to perform so she adores that it's a showcase and she packs as much in it as she can. I like that it has a inside pocket in the top. The earphones are super cute and my girl has hers to match. I wish the mic had a stand but my daughter finds a way to prop it up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Decent Product I like this product. It's not my favorite from American, but it's not the worst I've seen. The case is EXTREMELY roomy on the inside, though it's cheaply made. The top has a tendency to fall off if you're not careful. It has pretty nice play value. I just wish the quality were higher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loves this My daughter plays with this along with Gabriella McBridge the doll itself. She loves it and plays with it for hours. I would recommend this for girls 8 and up. Younger girls may break the pieces and not take care of the doll or the accessories.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun, but not sturdy enough. We bought this today after checking it out in the store. Love the accessories and its great for imaginative play. I thought it was detailed and functional for the price. But as soon as my daughter unboxed it, the lid fell off. Its easy to put back on, but it falls off EVERY time she opens it. Seems like a poor design. The laptop does the same, with a even tad too much pressure. They both have the same hinge design. It doesn't ruin the set, but its disappointing for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Fun Play Set My daughter was very excited to get this set. We liked this set because of the entertainment set inside the trunk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality This set is very poorly made. Everything in it is cheap plastic except the microphone. It will be going back, the quality is that awful. The trunk lid keeps popping off, the laptop lacks any detailing and is starting to come apart. The drumsticks look like cheap plastic. The trunk even has the awful plastic painted to look like chrome, the kind that chips. The shelf has the cheap fuzz you'd get on a $5 toy at a discount retailer. The quality is not there with this set, which is a shame. The $48 price tag is flat out ridiculous given the quality. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that you can personalize it! I love that this case comes with stickers so you (or your daughter) can personalize it! The case is on wheels so it can be moved by the dolls pretty easily. It comes with a drum pad and sticks that your doll can really hold, microphone, laptop and earphones! The drum pad can connect to the laptop and the laptop comes with two screens. The case has a main large compartment and also a shelf that covers that compartment, which your doll can place smaller items. There is also a place to keep small items on the back of the lid of the case. It's so cool and you can fill it up with so many things. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hinges are Cheap + Product Keeps Breaking My daughter spent over an hour looking in the NYC store before picking this as her present. She was so excited! Upon returning home and taking it out of the box the hinges won't keep the lid on the trunk. As soon as she open it the lid comes off! The same hinges are on the laptop as well and she has the same issue there. She is extremely gentle with her toys so this is not an issue of rough play. In the past products like this had a metal component to it and this is completely cheap plastic. I am so disappointed in the quality as we have made several purchases with American Girl and have never ever had an issue like this before. She is extremely disappointed. On a side note it was missing a few of the laptop screens and I think another of the paper accessories. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I will start by saying that there is ALOT of AG in our house...5 AG dolls, 2 Wellie Wishers and a bitty twin. We have the gourmet kitchen and the camper and tons of smaller accessory add ons. Up u til Gabriellas performance case, everything has been spectacular. My oldest got this for Easter and the lid on the case continually falls off as does the top to the lap top. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My Daughter loves this My 6.5 year old daughter received this for an Easter present. She was very excited to open the box. Once she opened the trunk, the lid immediately fell off. The material is not as durable as past accessory sets. The plastic does not seem as thick as other accesories and the lid constantly falls off. If we didn't live abroad, I would return it and ask for a replacement or refund. Saying that, my daughter has loved playing with this. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gabby Needs This Set Love this trunk and all of it's extras. The first think I feel in love with is that it comes with it's own stage. Everything fits into her trunk easily. We even put one of her outfits in there too. Headphones are super fun and well made. The computer has fun little screens you can change and of course the drum set and sticks are the hit!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Music Lovers Toy My daughter had a $50 Gift Card to use from her birthday and she was torn between this and an outfit + the mini BeForever doll. I thought this was a better value because it came with so many accessories for the doll. Her dolls have so many outfits already, so this was much cooler. Considering my daughter loves music and anything related. Plus she re-named her Josefina doll after her cousin, Gabriela..so this was perfect. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good purchase I purchased this for my daughter on Gabriela's debut day and she was very much wowed! Overall, I'm a little less impressed with this set because just about everything is made out of plastic. Also, the lid to the case came off within minutes of taking it out of the box. We were able to pop it back in place easily. I don't know if that was a design feature -- had they used a plastic hinge it probably would have broken easily. My daughter however loves this set and has played with it a lot. There are lots of little creative pieces that encourage imaginative play! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice, but... I like the dance case, but there are a couple of things wrong with it. The laptop comes apart, and GABRIELA is printed on the front of it, and it looks kind of like Isabelle's makeup case with her name on the front of it. I like the box though because it is very sturdy. I also like that the laptop connects to the drum set and the microphone. It also looks the slightest bit cheap. Overall I really do like this product. I really like the design, but I wish this was a better product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performance Case The other reviews are correct in saying that the quality of this product is not as good as it could be. The top of the case has fallen off several times and the laptop also comes apart. Both can easily be popped back in, but for the price you pay that shouldn't happen. Regardless, my daughter loves this set and all the accessories. It is adorable and she's had so much fun playing with it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but not the best quality My daughter received this as one of her birthday gifts from her Auntie. She wanted this and some other items from Gabriella's collection. The case is cute, however after the first day and a couple of times after that, the laptop in case keeps coming off of the hinges. You have to stop and put it back together. All of the items are plastic and don't seem the normal quality of AG items. Not sure how long this will last but my daughter likes it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not great quality for the price Gabriela's performance case is okay, but not really worth the price, considering the contents are plastic. This is the first time in years we've gone to a GOTY release weekend and left disappointed. This is actually the only GOTY item we bought, but it isn't that great. The drum machine is cute, but it is just plastic. We haven't had problems with the computer breaking so far, like others have mentioned. We didn't like that her name came plastered on the case since we wanted to use it for other dolls too, so we covered it with electrical tape. I think putting her name on the product is a bad idea, because it reduces the usability for other dolls, unless you want to cover the name like we did. Some of the pieces are okay, but it just isn't really up to the AG quality that we have grown accustomed to. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality Isn't American Girl My little girl loves this case so much but she cannot play with it. The kid to the case is constantly falling off as is the laptop. It frustrates her to no end because she loves it and WANTS to play with it. It frustrates me because it's $48 for such poor quality. Not what one would expect from American Girl. And from the reviews, it's a defect that just hasn't been fixed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FUN SET After reading the reviews, I was wondering if this set was really what I was looking for. I always open the products, (if possible) and check them out before I purchase. My store knows I do this, but this box was so sealed, I was uncomfortable taking it all apart on my own. One of the sales ladies helped me and we inspected it piece by piece. This trunk was put together fine, the top did not come off. The computer came apart as the lady opened it. She popped it back together, and it has stayed together for me. I do wish the drum pads were not hard plastic. Something softer may have sounded somewhat real. The mic and the earphones are cute. Since these are just props to go with the Melody sets we have, they work for us. I do think this set is a little over priced, but metal hardware on the trunk and a couple other tweaks could have really driven up the price. I think AG did a good job.

A few issues: - box lid and computer top keep separating and have to be reattached - it is ALL cheap, thin plastic. Many of the other sets we own are made of a wood-like product, which can withstand childhood play. This is not going to last. - the new packaging is tacky and looks like something you would find at a mass market discount store, not the AG boutique - Gabriela's name is permanently affixed to the box. Past girl of the year sets did not have names like this on them. - the concept is fun and the pieces work well with other AG toys. Lea's camera works with the laptop. Don't waste your money, you could get three accessory sets of this quality at another store for the same price of this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed My daughter was so excited about the new GOTY and her corresponding products. Upon arriving at the store and viewing the products and the packaging, we were both immediately disappointed. My daughter decided to only purchase this performance case and tap shoes instead of purchasing almost the entire collection as she had previously planned. Overall, the case is a disappointment. The mechanism that attaches the wheels is made of plastic. Normally, these are the type of things that I expect American Girl to construct with metal. Also, the contents are plastic and cheap. The drums, drumsticks, laptop, and headphones remind me of something I might purchase at a discount retailer. Actually, I have purchased headphones at a discount retailer for $3 and they are much better quality. I truly hope this is not reflective of a new direction for American Girl. Overall, this product is not composed of the quality material that we've come to expect from AG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I got this set for myself and enjoy it. I wish there wasn't so much plastic. I wish the drumsticks at least was wood. A couple more pieces would be nice for the price. I wish Gabriela wasn't on the front and rather was a sticker. I understand this is a Gabriela set, but I do not plan on getting the doll since I already have 3. I got this for my Lea and now have to say it was a hand-me-down trunk from her cousin Gabriela. There isn't too much for the dolls to do with it. The trunk is a good size, but has SO much space inside!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute Cute concept, but the product construction is questionable. The top of the performance case came off the very first time I opened it. I just wedged it back on. It does however randomly come off repeatedly. The laptop came apart (screen from keyboard) as well first time out of the box. It has springs inside the connection point so that was tricky to re-attach. I didn't want the hassle (and cost) of shipping them back for replacements, so I still have both.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap set--quality does not match cost. Admittedly, my daughter does love the set--she has been wanting a computer for her doll, so we purchased this set (sidenote: why doesn't AG make a computer accessory?). HOWEVER, everything feels cheap and flimsy. In only 12 hours of ownership, I have had to reattach the lid to the laptop more times than I can count. Also, while the set comes with stickers to decorate the box, I hate that "Gabriela" is printed directly on the box (while I understand it is one of Gabriela's accessories, we didn't purchase it for that particular doll). Overall, I'm disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO QUALITY CONTROL. CHECK FOR DEFECTS! We purchased this from AG Atlanta and my only "joy" in purchasing this was that I didn't pay shipping on it. It took FOUR of this item to find one without defects!!! When we took the first case out of the box, I found three LARGE silver paint fingerprints on the front of the case. Upon returning it to AG Atlanta for an exchange, the second case had silver paint over spray all over the front and the red headphones had deep scratches in the plastic where someone tried to scratch off excess paint. The THIRD Performance Case I was presented had a defect in the purple pocket on the lid...it had a dime-sized hole where it didn't meet up with the corner. Finally the fourth case was defect-free. There was clearly NO quality control on this item and for $48, I would expect some quality control -- the same quality we've come to expect and appreciate from American Girl. Defects aside, the set really has no play value. The drum pad is the draw for items with play and yet it does nothing. In the past, AG has always provided quality accessories with unique features not seen elsewhere. This item missed the mark entirely and seems like it was thrown together at the last minute. The rumor mill says that Gabriela was an afterthought and her collection was revamped versions of previously released items. After seeing it for myself at the store, I can't help but feel this is true. So sad....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Advanced Collector I love the idea of the case and its contents. I have no problem with the case being plastic....the actual case is cute. The earphones are cheaply made; multiple colors fading and/or running into each other. Laptop also cheaply made...snaps apart upon opening.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun but Cheaply Made I was excited, but a little disappointed with this set. The laptop keyboard is coming off after a short time playing with it. The top of the case fell off but I was able to fix it. The drum pad is just plastic it doesn't make a real drum sound. The laptop plugs into the drum pad and the microphone. The plug also fits in Lea's camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love this! My 9 year old daughter made this purchase on New Year's Day in Scottsdale. We traveled 6 hours for the premier of the Doll of the Year. We love this set. The trunk is well made. it has a extra shelf inside and has wheels. It comes with stickers to decorate and personalize the trunk. The computer has 3 pages that you can switch out with on the screen with a total of 6 options. The mic plugs into the drums and computer. It came with headphones, that fit the doll nicely. (Headphones don't plug into the computer.) Drum sticks fit nicely into the pocket in the lid of the trunk. All of the accessories that came with the trunk fit nicely with room to spare for Gabriela's other accessories. This is well worth the money. Buy this and skip her Showtime kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product to hold all the accessories! My girls love this! It has wheels so they are able to roll it across the room. It also contains lots of space to hold all the smaller pieces in Gabriela's collection. Very well made!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! My daughter loves this set! She loves the fact that it has wheels and she loved the headphones, laptop and drums. Gabriela looks very cute with the headphones on. I loved the fact that it has an extra tray inside and allows for way more storage than just the items it came with. My daughter put all the stuff it came with, her accessories and bag, her entire meet outfit and her earrings in it and there's still room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Original and Fun! I love this set! I adore that flight case so, so hard - it's such a cute accessory for Gabriela's story line, and original to boot! I like the wide range of accessories that come with this, there are a lot of pieces and they're very nicely done. The headphones and mic are especially cute. :)
