American Girl Nanea's Hula Outfit Review (American Girl)

American Girl Nanea's Hula Outfit
What It Is

The American Girl BeForever Nanea's Hula Outfit is an accessories set for the new 2017 American Girl BeForever doll Nanea Mitchell. The American Girl BeForever doll series introduces young kids to fictional characters from the past and relevant pieces of American history and culture in the process. 

Nanea's Hula Outfit, which is sold separately from the doll, is inspired by the hula lessons that Nanea loves getting from her grandmother in the book series. The outfit comes with a red top, a faux-ti-leaf skirt, a lei po'o for her head, a lei made of faux plumeria boom (inspired by the one Nanea made herself before a performance), two kupe'e leis (worn on the wrists and ankles), and two 'uli'uli pretend feathered gourds to hold and dance with in a performance. 

All the items slide onto the doll easily and are held in place by elastic bands.

Is It Fun?

While the American Girl dolls are perfect for classic doll and hair play, it's the add-on accessories like this Hula Outfit, sold separately, that create new opportunities for storytelling and recreating moments from the books. This outfit really has a high quality make to it as well that's going to last for years, so for collectors there is also a lot of value in this purchase.

Who It’s For

The American Girl BeForever Nanea's Hula Outfit set is for ages 8 and up. We think this will likely age down a few years as well. Additionally, while intended to go along with the Nanea doll and storyline, this outfit works with any 18-inch American Girl doll kids want to make do some hula dancing.
