One of our Doll Diaries community members, Kristen, was lucky enough to get Julie’s Egg Chair the day it came out and has been kind enough to take photos and send her review to us to enjoy!

When I first saw this chair online, I couldn’t wait to see it in stores (and to have Ivy to lounge in it). Recently I went to the BeForever launch at the American Girl Store in San Francisco/Bay Area (Palo Alto). They had this on display and Ivy really enjoyed it. I was given permission to get this, (and Ivy was thrilled), so here is the review!

American Girl Julie Egg Chair Review

Julie’s egg chair set comes with the chair, the ottoman, a sheet of stickers to decorate, and the cable to play music from a music player or music playing device. You can see Ivy sitting in it (with my phone plugged in), the chair & ottoman, and the backside of the chair, decorated with the sticker sheet.

In this collage you can see the inside of the chair, with a soft bright orange polyester material, and velcro on the cushion (detachable). The speakers are on either side of the doll’s head (sitting down).

The ottoman is an orange plastic, with the same soft bright orange polyester material. It has feet on the bottom to stand.

In case you were wondering, the chair is about 6.5 inches in depth and 17 inches tall.

Overall, the this set is a bit overpriced ($100), but it is a great piece of furniture to add to any dollhouse/room/space. On the scale of 1-10, I would rate this a 9.

Thanks again Kristen! Does anyone else have this piece already? What do you think of it? If not, is it on your wish list?
