Our Generation Explorers set

Our Generation Explorers Set

Our Generation has been on a roll lately!  At least in my area.  I know it’s hit or miss in a lot of places.  I’ve seen a lot of older sets that haven’t been available come back and several new sets also.  This is a review on the OG Explorers set and I hope it’s detailed enough for you to decide if it will be a good addition to your collection. And of course after you watch it be sure to leave a comment on what you want us to replicate!

Explorers Set Includes:

  1. Hankerchief
  2. Sash with Badges
  3. Firefly Jar
  4. Foldable Camping Utensil (CUTE)
  5. Functioning Flashlight
  6. Rope Knot
  7. Compass
  8. Water Bottle
  9. Cookie Box w/clear tray (mine was missing the tray)
  10. 4 S’mores
  11. Knot Guide

Items that pair nicely with this set:

American Girl Camp Stove

American Girl Doll Campfire – Easy  

American Girl Doll Camp Propane

Giveaway Details

Somehow I ended up with two of these sets! I’m sure I could find a use for the doubles, but it’s much more fun to spread the love. Just leave a comment below with which item you think will be fun to replicate or what you will do with this set if you win.  Also, for a bonus entry share one of your latest crafts with us on the Brag Page!

    I would really like it if you could replicate firefly jar. It is so cute. Please craft it. Thank you.

    I had the utensil gadget when I was in Girl Scouts! I think that is my favorite thing in this set. I also like the bug in a jar. It’s such an improvement over Kit’s firefly jar from her Tree House. I may have to find this set.

    If I win this I am going to gift it to my little 5 year old girl named Kylie. She always had wanted a AG doll. But I always said no. So, on her 5th birthday I gifted her one (grace). Then she had wanted doll stuff. I said no to her because it costs to much. If she wins this it will be her BEST DAY EVERR!! ?

    A homemade firefly set would be nifty. My daughter and I always take our girls camping!

    I would love to add these pieces onto the og camp backpack set I got for my birthday last year, especially the cutlery tool and the sash. The s’mores look realistic and cute as well. I would love to try replicating the individual badges on the sash,

    I would luv it if you recreated the bug jar and the s’mores. I have an OG tent and my OG doll would love to have this set to use.

    As the mom of two girls who love Girl Scouts and camping, this set is sure to be a winner. I would love to re-create the firefly jar – and maybe make a few that are “real girl” sized as well.

    The smores look great. ..now I’m hungry lol

    Wow, I love this set! The best part is the foldable camping utensil – don’t know how you’d begin to replicate it, but it would be amazing!

  23. Joanna K Fedewa
    July 25, 2015 at 2:22 pm –

    Oh my gosh I love this set! Its so much fun! It would be perfect for my dolls!

    I would love it if you could recreate the smores and box. I love that box.

    The compass and the flashlight please.

    Wow! I’m in love with this set how cute! It would be AWESOME!!! if you could replicate another version of that box or the compass! The flashlight is super cute though!

  27. Bella
    July 25, 2015 at 8:08 am –

    I would love if you could replicate the flashlight! Every doll needs a flashlight for camping or in case the power goes out! You don’t have to make it turn on (that would be really difficult) but I would love to see how you can make a flashlight!

  28. Karen B
    July 25, 2015 at 7:55 am –

    I’d love to see the knot rope (thickness of rope, length to cut, etc…) and the dimensions for the handkerchief.

  29. Kristina
    July 25, 2015 at 7:38 am –

    I think this set would be perfect for camping play. The little details, like the s’mores and the patches are so cute. Hope I can maybe win!

  30. Emmy
    July 25, 2015 at 7:34 am –

    I think you should replicate the s’mores. I love camping with my dolls, and it would be amazing if I won because my local Target never has any good sets. ?

  31. Jocelyn
    July 25, 2015 at 7:15 am –

    Thanks for having this giveaway! I think it would be cool to replicate the tin water bottle. Thanks again!

  32. Emma Walters

    July 24, 2015 at 9:43 pm –

    So cute, I hope my Target gets the new sets soon. I would love to have you replicate the spoon/fork, the bug jar, and the knot guide. Thanks

    I love all your stuff , can you make a cookie box replica video and printable please

  40. sharon
    July 24, 2015 at 6:06 pm –

    I would love to see what you could do with the bug jar! I agree with Lauren H. glowing fireflies would be great!

  41. Amanda Smith
    July 24, 2015 at 5:31 pm –

    The items that I think would be a challenge to replicate are the S’mores, Bug Jar, and Foldable Camp Utensil. I’m thinking that the camp utensil might be replicated using shrink plastic and some brads & paint maybe? It would be a good challenge to see if it’s possible. Looks like a great set!

  42. Holly
    July 24, 2015 at 5:06 pm –

    My daughter is in love with diy american girl doll items so she loves you website!! She thinks that the spoon and fork gadget would be so fun to make. If she had this set she would take out all of her dolls on a girl scout camping trip!! (Even me)

  43. Sue
    July 24, 2015 at 5:05 pm –

    I would like to see the firefly jar made, with firefly or course. ?

    Also, was on brag page for the “Fireworks on the beach” stand. I made the fireworks from your blog. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway. ?

  44. Lauren H.
    July 24, 2015 at 4:48 pm –

    My favorite pieces are the s’mores and the bug jar. It might be cool to figure out a way to make it look like glowing fireflies inside.

  45. Amy Gao
    July 24, 2015 at 2:45 pm –

    I want you to repeclate the of s’mores

  46. Agnieszka
    July 24, 2015 at 12:54 pm –

    I think it would be really cool to replicate the utensil tool. It’s really cute and since I’m a scout I’ve seen people actually use them at camp!

  47. Cindy V.
    July 24, 2015 at 12:37 pm –

    This would be so fun if we won because when my daughter’s cousin comes to sleep over,their american girls can be camping in the tent roasting some s’mores!

  48. Jwahlquist
    July 24, 2015 at 11:04 am –

    My daughter has the OG camp trailer and the tent set and loves to have the girls go camping so this set would fit right in. I would love to see a better version of the smores box and smores to fit inside the box with out falling out ?

  49. lediamond
    July 24, 2015 at 10:46 am –

    Like you said in the video it doesn’t have a closer to the other end of the box it would be nice to create your version because it would be organizing and the box is veryuch cute and detailed. And thank you ?

  50. lediamond
    July 24, 2015 at 10:43 am –

    I ment smores sorry?

  51. lediamond
    July 24, 2015 at 10:42 am –

    I would most likely replicate the stores box but add a closer to both ends to be more secure

    • Rudy
      July 24, 2015 at 10:43 am –

      Yes! What is up with the box?

  52. Liana
    July 24, 2015 at 10:11 am –

    I am going camping in a few weeks and I would really like to have this set for my dolls! I would have a lot of fun setting this up! It’s such an adorable kit!

    • Rudy
      July 24, 2015 at 10:42 am –

    I’m loving all of the new OG sets! And thank goodness we have you to show us what they look like, because I know my Target never has any of them! Lol I love all of the items that you recreate, but I would love to see you make the firefly jar! :). Thanks for the giveaway!!

    • Rudy
      July 24, 2015 at 10:43 am –

      Thanks and good luck!

    I would like to see printables for:

    Knot Guide

    Cookie box

    Compass dial

    Badges (printables could be mod podge, glued to foam, them glue to a fastener to pin on sash or glued directly to sash

    The s’mores would be nice to make but I would like to see the foldable camping utensil. The untensil is the wild factor of the set.

    • Rudy
      July 24, 2015 at 9:51 am –

      Coming right up!

  55. Liana
    July 24, 2015 at 9:33 am –

    I would use the set every day and the s’mores are just 2 cute! I ❤️ American girl and your channel! It would mean a lot 2 me if I won because that would be sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooawesome!

    Please choose me!

    I have a lake house in Lake Erie and we do s’mores a lot I would love to have s’mores for grace too and I can not find that in stores either ?

  57. Emily Z.
    July 24, 2015 at 7:56 am –

    I think the s’mores would be the most fun to replicate! You could probably make them out of polymer clay or craft foam! I’m taking my dolls camping in Yosemite in a few weeks, so I would use this set to create a camp scene for them. ?

    You should totally replicate thethe smores and maybe make a printable for a better box for the smores ?
