I have wanted Kit Kittredge for quite some time. Costco had a good price on Kit and Accessories, so naturally, I bought her. I would have liked to have had the earlier Kit, but this is the Beforever Kit.
Previously, the only Kit items I had were her desk, chair and her candy making kit. The Costco Set contained Kit in her Meet Dress and underwear, strappy scarlet shoes and a red barrette, Reporter Dress and Vest, White Mary Jane shoes, green Barrette, and a beautiful red cardigan that really buttons up.
This set also contains Kit's Reporter Set consisting of an accordion-style camera that really opens and closes, a camera case, an empty box of Kodak film, a flip top journal for taking notes, a faux fountain pen with Kit's name on it (the lid comes off the pen).
It also contains a fabric pouch to carry her notebook with a little pocket to hold her pen, a bundle of mini replica 1930s Cincinnati Newspapers. It does not contain the picture stickers that her original set had. This set contains her white felt cloche hat with red ribbon trim and bow. It does not contain her cuff bracelet, nor her purse.
Included in this set is Kit's paperback book, "Read All About IT". This set sells for $129.99 at Costco. My Costco did not have it, so I asked them to find out which Costco had it and went there. I am very satisfied with this set, although I thought Kit's hair would be very easy to fix since it was short. But I find myself thinking that if it was just a wee bit shorter it would lay better. Let me tell you, this was the EASIEST unpackaging ever. You just take the two boxes out of the big box, take the elastic off the doll's neck and the rubber bands off of her ankles and she's free. For the other accessories, you just lift off the plastic cover and nothing is secured except the white Mary Janes, snip one thread and they are free!
