We have a few complaints about this outfit, the tap shoes are difficult to tie, even for an adult. However there is elastic under the ribbon to hold the shoes on. We recommend pulling the ribbon out and using the elastic only for play.
Another frustration we had, was that the velour bodysuit left black fuzz all over the cloth body of the doll. So we also recommend having a lint roller close by when playing with this outfit.
