Mikaella In Comfy Sleepwear
One of the great things about the new releases from Toys R Us is the variety of outfits that are available. This pajama set is a great example of the variety of types of clothing that they released for the Journey Girls. It is also worth mentioning that there were three different pajama sets released, making it so that your dolls don’t all have to wear the same pajamas. That is awesome!!!
The set comes with a gray long sleeved shirt, soft cotton pants, a sleeping mask, a little stuffed bird, and a pair of moccasin style pink slippers. Everything in the set fits perfectly, as it should, since it is made for the Journey Girls. The top is a simple gray ribbed long sleeve shirt. It has a pink collar, pink cuffs at the end of the sleeves and a pink hem at the bottom of the shirt. The shirt Velcro’s up the back for easy on and off.
The pants are a pastel purple, soft cotton fabric with printed birds on them. An elastic waist keeps the pants snug and make it super easy to put them on also. Gray fabric that matches the shirt is sewn on the bottom of each leg.
The sleeping mask matches the bird print on the pants and is accented by pink piping around the edges, matching the accents on the shirt. It has a simple elastic band to hold it on Mikaella’s head. Since the Journey Girls can’t close their eyes, this is a great way to make them “sleep”.
Since this is a fairly simple set, it is nice that it comes with a few accessories. Almost everyone had a favorite stuffed animal when they were growing up. It’s nice to see that a stuffed animal is included in this set. The bird is more like a pillow than a stuffed animal, but it totally matches the outfit. If you look at the pants, there is actually a pink bird with orange wings, just like the stuffed bird. The one thing that is a bit ridiculous is the tag on the bird is just as big as the bird itself. Cut it off if you’d like.
The last thing that is in this set is also one of the best additions, the slippers. Shoes are kind of a weak point in most of the outfits. These are awesome, partly because they are very realistic and they aren’t plastic. Yeah!!! The slippers are pink, matching all the other pink on the outfit. The soft fabric is pleated in the toe of the slipper with a stretched back. A light pink bow adorns both of the slippers tops. Getting the slippers on can be a bit challenging as the backs of the slippers catch on Mikaella’s heels, since the fabric doesn’t stretch.

Value 8 – Although this is a great outfit, it is just pajamas. Most of the things are not going to go with anything other than other pajamas. The top may be able to go with very casual outfits, but mostly it will go well with other pajamas.
Fitment 10– The outfit is a perfect fit. Even though the slippers are tight, they still fit well. You can tell that this outfit is made for the Journey Girls.
Versatility 4 – The pants and the shirt could be used for other outfits, but it would have to be the right outfit…like a lazy day outfit. Sleepwear just doesn’t have many other uses than sleepwear.
Cuteness 9 – Who doesn’t like little birds? The print on this outfit is adorable. The little birds are super cute. The colors are great together. There is just enough pink. And the slippers are awesome! Cute and functional, perfect.
Overall 7 – Don’t let the score fool you, this is an amazing outfit, it’s just not a very versatile outfit. The Journey Girls have a lot of great outfits, but almost all of them have been daywear, so it is great to get some sleepwear. The print on the outfit is really cute, the colors are great, and the accessories are nice too. The bird is a bit of a strange stuffed animal, but it matches the outfit perfectly, and it is kind of a cute little pillow. The slippers are awesome and stay on Mikaella’s feet well, once they are on. Every girl needs some good comfortable sleepwear; this is a perfect outfit for that. Buy it if you get the chance.
