When we ordered McKenna’s starter set her Practice Wardrobe was one of the pieces of it that was on backorder. Like the warm up suit, McKenna’s practice wardrobe showed up well before the backorder date. Right now on the AG website it shows her Practice Wardrobe backordered until late June, but they are coming in and they are shipping them as they get them.
As American Girl sets go, I really think that McKenna’s Practice Wardrobe is one of the better values. It sells for $34 if you don’t get the Starter Set, but it really is two outfits in one. You get McKenna’s gymnastics leotard, a little top she can wear over it, her velour shorts, her gymnastics t-shirt, her ankle brace, 4 ponytail holders, a bunch of thin elastics for her hair and a headband. Ivy offered to play the part of McKenna’s best friend Toulane forever since she is a gymnast and a Toulane doll is not happening.
McKenna put on her ankle brace, the leotard and got her hair done using all the ponytails from her set (plus the ones from her warm ups) and began her stretching.
Toulane put on the t-shirt and the shorts and offered to help McKenna with her bar routine.
As McKenna got on her grips and started her bars drills, Toulane reminder her to keep her arms and legs straight – to which McKenna replied, “I’m an American Girl doll – I don’t have a choice!”
“There you go McKenna, only 99 more cast handstands to go!!” said Toulane with a little bit of sarcasm in her voice. To which McKenna replied, “Ugh, I can’t wait until my ankle has healed enough for me to vault and tumble, all this extra bars conditioning is getting old.”
