Do you like spring sports? Our American Girl dolls do! Actually, they like all sports and one of these days I am going to photograph all our sports outfits being modeled, but for now, join Emily, Marisol and Gwen as they get ready to play and I review three new sports outfits.
It’s a beautiful spring day in Dolltown and friends Marisol, Gwen and Emily all meet up outside The Ice Cream Shoppe. Marisol is getting warmed up for her first 5K run of the season, Gwen is ready for her lacrosse game and Emily can’t wait to get on the golf course and make a hole in one.
Gwen says goodbye for now to her friends and makes sure she is ready for the lacrosse game.
The Lacrosse set is from American Girl and it is adorable. I had really wanted a Field Hockey outfit because Natalie plays Field Hockey, but this is as close as I am going to get. The set comes with the sports top, a charcoal gray skort, deep pink socks, the cleats, the lacrosse stick, the face mask, a lacrosse ball and stick on mouth guards. This is one of American Girl’s better sports outfits, in my opinion. They really paid attention to detail and made the outfit in line with what the girls are wearing on the field now. I give this outfit an A.
And a closer look at the lacrosse stick, face mask and mouth guards. I love that American Girl took time to add in the safety items that girls playing field sports need! The stick on mouth guards are precious – and I know in Natalie’s field hockey league the refs want bright colored mouth guards so there is no mistaking if the girls have them in or not.
Emily heads into the Club House to pick up some last minute items before heading out to the green.
The 9 Piece Golf Set Emily is wearing I found on Amazon for around $30. I really thought the golf bag and doll sized clubs were adorable! We have the retired Golf & Tennis set from American Girl, but it only comes with a putter. That said, the golf bag and clubs that came with this set are a little small in comparison to the dolls. I think I may make Ellowyne a golf skirt and give her the golf bag instead.
Emily practices her putting in the clubhouse while waiting for a golf cart to be ready.
The golf outfit really is adorable and in this case the skirt is actually a skort which is nice (the retired AG set has a simple wrap around skirt). Overall, I give this outfit a B.
Marisol is warming up for her 5K by doing a little stretching!
The 2-in-1 Running Outfit from American Girl is absolutely adorable – right down to the yellow trimmed no-show socks! You can mix, match and layer the four pieces of the set to get multiple looks. It comes with a sleeveless yellow and navy running top, a light blue running jacket, light blue running shorts, navy blue long running pants, the adorable socks, running shoes, a race day number and a charm for Innerstar U.
Marisol is “pumped” – I mean “pumping” out her pushups before her race.
Congratulations Marisol! You finished your 5K race with ease. It must have been all that pre-race training.
I absolutely love the colors of the 2-in-1 Running Set and the fact that it basically is two outfits makes this one of my favorite American Girl values! The set is $34 and overall, I give it an A.
What are your favorite sports? I love to walk, run and play golf. Megan is a gymnast and will be trying out for the High School cheer team soon and Natalie is a swimmer, plays field hockey and likes to join me on the golf course, too.
