Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hawaii fun.. We have been to Hawaii and my granddaughter wanted the Hawaiian outfit. She was very excited to receive it this past Easter in her basket from grandma. But, what really made her day was this Hula bag of accessories. Each item is very well made including the very realistic straw bag. Of course her doll uses the bag for many other American Girl accessories her dolls need for every day play. Very good quality item. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes! A Ukulele! This set is super cute! My favorite pieces are the tote bag and ukele. They can easily be used with any doll in multiple scenarios. The other pieces are a little bit more specific to hula, but I like that they have handles so that they can actually be held. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome details! I bought these for my Nanea collection. I love the American girl details! As a musician I will never buy you instruments and these do not seem like toys! They are so incredibly realistic. Once again the American girl Company has created no less than perfection!! Thank you! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun! I choose Nanea because I am learning ukulele. The ukulele in this set is darling! I love that it plays songs, but I also love how AG helps preserve batteries by limiting audio time/ The length of play is somewhat short, but just push the button again! Bonus...not sure if this was planned...but the way the uke can stand on its own is an added benefit for display purposes. The bag is roomy with a large shoulder handle and the quality is outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing details on Nanea’s musical instruments We got this for our daughter to remind her of our family trip to Hawaii last summer. We love the details — from the natural grass basket to the ukulele that “plays,” the set is a great accompaniment. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Authentic Hawaiian Set This is a fun little authentic Hawaiian set. The ukelele actually plays 2 songs. Nanae can hold several of the pieces in her hands. The other items make fun little sounds when you hit them together. The sheet music is darling. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect accessories for Nanea This set of instruments really elaborates on the hula theme. Nanea looks so much more lively holding any of these pieces. All of them have handles that are easy to slip on her hands. The bamboo sticks look adorably authentic when Nanea holds them. It looks like she is really playing! Although she can't grasp the ukulele to make it look like she is playing it, she can hold it. The best feature is to have the ukulele play 2 tunes. It sounds great and adds so much to the fun of this set. Great quality too. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Ukelele! This set was gifted to us, along with Nanea. I love the big bag and the ukulele! The music is perfect! All items are very well made, however, we don't really play with half of the items. Cute for sure, and a part of Hawaiian tradition, etc. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Authentic Set! I think this is great, the Hawaiian musical instruments were all well researched, and their design is very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks great! It's great, but after about 5 minutes of play, it started to get boring and frustrating. no matter how hard we tried, the doll would not hold the items. The ukulele was absolutely wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ukulele is awesome I am only reviewing the ukulele as I do not have the other pieces in this set. Nice size (smaller than Tenney's guitar and banjo), great Hawaiian song plays for a good amount of time. The little button on the back is a bit hard to push in for small fingers so I wish that was easier to find and push. The strings do make sounds when strummed. Overall very happy with the ukulele.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so cute! I am so glad that American Girl finally has a ukulele, since I play it and know how hard it is to find for dolls. the sheet music is detailed and accurate, however, the rest of the instruments are plastic. Maybe they could also have different shapes of ukulele and not just a pineapple, however cute it is. overall it is a great product and I like it a lot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Super cute but ..... We purchased this when we bought Nanea for my daughter's birthday. She was really excited to bring her home and to try out all of the things. We discovered really quickly that Nanea can't actually hold most of the things in the set. Her fingers and hands just don't fit properly through the handles. We had a moment of tears but thankfully she is resilient. I feel for the parents whose children are looking for a better and more authentic experience. That being said, she put all of the items back into the bag and hasn't brought them out since because it's "just too hard". [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Nanea's dances The sterling piece in Nanea's Hula Instruments set is the ukulele. While it resembles Kanani's, the acoustics are superior and there are two Hawaiian tunes, one easily recognizable. The instrument has straps so Nanea can hold it. The other items are perfect too, with hand or finger straps, and make a nice replacement for the too-heavy 'uli'uli in the Hula Outfit set. Everything fits in the roomy lauhala bag, but some items could go in a pineapple box, too. The only thing missing is a music stand for the sheet music. The ones that came with the violin and flute sets work well here. I think this is a great set. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the bag and ukulele My daughter really likes this little set. The bag is good quality and she has been using it to double as a carrying case for Mele, Nanea's dog, when we go out. The ukulele can be played with the strings, or you can push a button on the back to play pre-recorded music. She's not as clear with what she should do with the other items yet, but we are going to read the book this week and maybe learn more about them. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Authentic but so-so quality To start, I love that Nanea has a complete hula instrument set. But, the whole point of the instruments is to use items nature makes for us (rocks, wood, bamboo, gourds) to add something special to your dances. It would have been nice if American Girl had used materials that look somewhat natural for those instead of the. Having said that, I love that Nanea can hold all her items, the bag is well-made and adorable, and the sheet music is a nice touch! The look of the uke is nice, but I actually prefer Kanani's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute, but mostly cheap plastic I have mixed feelings about this set. While the bag is good quality and the ukulele is very cute (and can actually be strummed and plays a song), most of the pieces are cheap plastic, and they look it. For the price, the rest of the items should have been made out of authentic materials, such as rock, wood, and bamboo. I sorely miss the old days when AG focused on historically authentic materials. AG, please bring these higher quality items back! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this ukulele!! I love this hula set! It features a working ukulele that plays two songs once you pull the tab on the back. This ukulele has a plastic loop on the back of the neck so your doll can hold it while it plays. It also comes with a 'drum' with string so it can be worn by your doll, two sheets of music, two bamboo sticks with plastic loops so your doll can hold them and hit them together to make music, it also comes with a smaller brown set of sticks your doll can hold, and two river stones which attach to your dolls finger. These stones are also for hitting together to make music. All these hula implements fit nicely into the straw bag included with the hula set. I ordered this set online and have had no issues with broken pieces on the ukulele or rocks. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
