You can buy Our Generation items here in the UK from Smyths Toys and online at My Doll Boutique, but the range isn’t as big as what’s available in the USA, plus they are quite highly priced here in comparison. However, there is a special members only discount website here called Achica which has new sales of items every day of heavily discounted stuff that only lasts a day or two until it is sold out; and a few weeks ago they had a bunch of Our Generation stuff available for really cheap prices, including a few sets that I haven’t seen available in the UK on other sites.
I got a few of them, mainly for Olive (my Dollstown Ganga 7yrs) to use so I am waiting for her to get back from her faceup before I show you them. However, this set I am showing you today works for a few of my dolls so I thought I’d get on and show you it whilst we wait for Olive to come home.
This is a deluxe outfit set called “The Reel Deal” which I mainly got because I wanted the fishing rod 😉
It comes with a swim set (top and bottoms), sunhat, sunglasses, glittery jelly sandals, a fishing rod and a bucket.
Now the outfit just about works for my Disney Animator dolls. The swimsuit and sandals are a little big, the hat is a little small and the sunglasses are much too small; but I think she just about gets away with it. The fishing rod and bucket work absolutely fine for her.
The fishing rod also works really well for Will and Olive (please excuse her headless body lol!), although I do wish the rod wasn’t quite so pinky purple. I may paint it a different colour at some point. The bucket is fine for them both too and will probably be fine with the Littlefee/YOSDs as well. Generally, I’m pretty pleased with the set. I only really got it for the fishing rod but some of the other pieces work ok with my other kinds of dolls too so that is an added bonus 🙂
