Kaya’s Winter Cape & Hood $22 WCO Grade: B
I really do like the idea of this set. I have a total bias towards fake fur. I would always rather see the real stuff. I know for kids it isn't always realistic but I always prefer it. The strings are the other reason I lower the grade on the set. The detail of that is written in the descriptions below.
The cape is nicely made and lined. They cut the fur in a zig zag in the edges so that it gives a skinned animal effect. I suggest when you put it on the doll that you put the cape on and then add the hood after. It can be a little tough to put on for kids.
The hood is made form the same faux suede that is used in the mittens. It is aslo trimmed with the same faux fur. Attached onto the front tip are two small feathers. One is red and one is spotted. I really do not like the ties for the cape or the hood. It is a stiff string that slips out of it's knots.
The mittens easily fit on the doll without any effort. They are finish trimmed with some fake fur like on the hood. the come up nice and high almost to the elbows.
The mocasins are nice too. Same suede material and faux fur. The laces are nice and long and easlity wrap enough times to hold the mocs on then be tied with little effort even for my daughter.
