My Life As can be purchased at Wal-mart in the toy section. It is a registered trademark of Wal-mart so as far as I can tell there is no website or really any other information about this brand. They have a pretty nice range of outfits, accessories, and dolls! And here is their clothing display:
|All the piiiiiiiiiink|
I was pretty impressed with the quality of what I saw while I was browsing. They have a really cute selection of leggings and animal hats!
It took me quite a bit to decide on one outfit. This pink tracksuit was a strong candidate:
|It has real embroidery!|
And so was this little corduroy dress:
|I was so close to getting this one but the fur!|
But in the end I fell in love with this:
|Here is is on my kitchen floor!|
Everything is attached to this contraption with plastic fasteners.
The water bottle is adorable!
It's just one piece of translucent, pink plastic with a butterfly sticker. I expected it to be cheaply made but honestly the plastic is nice and thick and I think it would hold up really well to everyday play. The only part I would be worried about is the butterfly sticker.
This jacket is amazing.
On the shoulder is the only place where the stitching isn't perfect and it doesn't effect the jacket at all. It just looks a little messy in profile.
The zipper pull is a cute and detailed molded pink butterfly. Butterflies seem to be the My Life As emblem? They are pretty much everywhere. Like the left side of the jacket, which has an iron on pink butterfly. I like it!
The yoga pants are black spandex with another iron on butterfly on the hip. They feel like real yoga pants! The waist band is made from the same purple material as the jacket. Unfortunately it's not very stretchy so getting them over my doll's rear end was a little hard but on the plus side the waist band lays very nicely against her body.
I had a pair of AG shoes for her to wear so I didn't buy any specifically for this outfit. Plus all of their athletic shoes are plastic and we all know how I feel about that! But I already had one pair of their plastic shoes and recently they have come out with fabric shoes! So I bought a pair and now I'll go over both.
I bought this pair of shoes in January. It was right before I got Jade and Lilly and I wanted to be sure they would have at least one outfit apiece when they arrived. I found these and even though they are plastic I thought they looked enough like jelly sandals that I could deal with it. Each shoe is one molded piece of clear plastic with silver glitter imbedded in it.
They had a few styles of fabric shoes, including some cute pink canvas slip-ons, but I thought that these mary janes would work the best for me.
And now, to finish up, here are a couple of pictures of Jade in her new yoga outfit:
She can easily hold on to the water bottle with a little help from a clear rubber band!
My over all impression of My Life As is very good. I love the outfit and while both kinds of shoes have their issues I still think they are pretty solid. You can't beat $2! The outfit is well made and I think it's adorable. To be honest I wasn't expecting much from this brand but the outfit I got is my favorite so far and I will definitely be buying from them again!
