While browsing through Target a week or so ago, I happened to spot this little set in the Our Generation section:
It's called "Plaid to Meet You", and includes a doll-sized bag, laptop, and pen...well, it's possibly a pen.
Front view of the package.
Here's everything out of the package.
The bag is made of a leather-look material and a flannel-like material on top. It has real working clasps that are easy to open and close.
I love the adorable Scottie dog design on the top flap. :)
The bag opens...
...and has enough space to store both of the other items inside.
Here is the cute laptop that comes with the set. When I first saw the package, I thought this was a notebook or something. When I realized it was a laptop, I was so excited! I've been looking for a reasonably-priced doll-sized laptop for a while.
Here's a view of the front when it's closed.
And here it is open. The screen on the inside is from the Our Generation website.
The side includes indentations that give the impression of the various plug ins on a laptop.
The laptop is marked "Our Generation by Battat" and "Made in China" on the bottom.
And here is what I assumed to be a pen, although I thought it was kind of silly that they didn't put a point on it. When my mom saw it, she thought that maybe it was supposed to be a stylus for the laptop.
What do you guys think?
The set is very compatible with American Girl dolls. Here, Charlie shows how she can hold the bag.
The laptop is slightly small for her, at least for a standard-sized laptop. This doesn't bug me too much, though. Laptops are getting smaller all the time. Maybe she's just got a more compact model. ;)
I'm looking forward to incorporating this computer into Tess and Maggie's photostories for their blog. Of course, now I'll have to come up with another excuse besides "we couldn't get to the computer" when I'm behind on their posts. :}
I'm very happy with this fun little set from Our Generation. It was just $6.99 and is made well. If any of your dolls have been begging for a computer of their own, this just might be the perfect thing for you. ;)
Shortly after I purchased this set and before I managed to get around to reviewing it, Emily at The Toy Box Philosopher did her own blog review. I thought I'd link it HERE since she had a lot more pictures and went into more detail. Enjoy! :)
