Last year when we were still snooping for tidbits about the Girl of the Year 2016 Lea Clark left and right, one of the leaks that appeared were a pair of pajamas with a Cheshire Cat looking face printed on the shirt. It was eventually dispelled as Lea's, when we found out the green parrot rompers were her actual PJs. However, since then, quite a few of us have wondered if this factory prototype was just that, a prototype, or if it would ever be produced and released.
Recently, cdaizybug on AGPT shared the link to a finished eBay auction showing what looks to be the "final" version of what started out as the Cheshire Cat PJs prototype we saw last year. It seems the cat PJs were just a prototype with the cat face as a graphic "placeholder" and the pants made from scrap fabric (from the fabric used to make the meet dress for Lea's mini doll). The final version shows a Pomeranian dog where the Chershire cat's face was, and the pants made with a teal paw print patterned fabric.
I do not know when these will be released or if this is even the final version but my guess is this is the final product and it will be released this fall.

eBay Leaked Photos:
The eyes looks a little strange but I think the embroidered matching dogs on the slippers are a cute touch!
I know there were quite a few people who really liked the Cheshire Cat graphic and will be disappointed it is not being used.
Front of the pajama pants. On the back, there is the standard AG ego tag.
It looks like the PJs set will come with 2 matching elastics for your doll's hair.
Overall, this is not my favorite PJs set created by AG and I will not be picking it up, though I do think the slippers are cute.
