I had to use a question mark in the title of this blog entry. This gift set has me confused in many ways. Whenever Integrity Toys (IT) has an online reveal of new dolls, the W Club members are given an opportunity to purchase an exclusive gift set. Last year it was High Visibility Agnes Von Weiss.
High Visiblity Agnes, though not a favorite for me personally, came with a purse, hat, two pair of shoes, three bracelets, earrings, sunglasses, a long mermaid skirt, a pencil skirt, a brown crop jacket, and a bustier. She cost members $135.
I think she actually holds her own and the two complement each other. My final thoughts, for what they are worth:
I believe IT missed an opportunity here. It wouldn't have been a major cost to include another pair of shoes, some hose, better jewelry (including a pin for the coat), and a hat. That would've tipped the scale. I believe the Royal Treatment is a lovely doll, but they overcharged for a gift set that wasn't executed well. It's left a bad taste in the mouths of their loyal collectors.
