American Girl Z’s Media Kit Play Set Review

There is a lot of excitement right now with the release of Nanea and her collection. She represents such an important time in history and her stories are well written to reflect that. However, American Girl also released several new items for other collections. Z Yang got a new media kit! We have seen sneak peeks of this set on American Girl’s Instagram page and we’ve been patiently waiting!  One thing that I am disappointed about in this set is that there is only one light included. You need at least two lights when filming and three is ideal. Even American Girl staged their photos with two lights set up for Z.  One light is a bummer. If you want to craft this set, you can watch our DIY Green Screen & Light Kit video.

*Z’s Dress is from The Simple Life Pattern Company.  You can find the pattern HERE.

Z’s Media Kit $60 Includes:

  • A reversible fabric backdrop screen with a frame—it has a Seattle scene on one side and a green screen on the other
  • A working studio light
  • A clapboard
  • A bag that holds the poles and screen
  • A pretend megaphone
  • A booklet with tips and tricks for studio lighting
  • A mini award

Watch and tell us if you like to take pictures of your dolls!
