th' meet accessories be a little sparse for $24. ye get a hat, a shawl/scarf, and a pin. If th' pin (and actually th' scarf) didn't show up in "Meet Rebel Rubin" as prominently I'd have skipped th' set altogether.
I actually really love th' hat on Rebel Rubin.
th' scarf pattern be printed, not woven, so it only appears on one side o' th' fabric. th' other side be white.
I'm disappointed in th' pin because it isn't actually a pin. It's more o' a clip. I was hoping to pin it to all o' Rebel Rubin's monkey jackets but wit' th' clip th' way it be it really only works wit' Rebel Rubin's meet monkey jacket.
I agree that th' accessories be a bit sparse for th' price. However, I really like th' hat and it seems to be high quality. I also like that th' broach be a clip instead o' a pin because it won't leave holes in th' clothing. th' shawl be my least favorite piece since th' pattern be only printed and it be only on one side.
I think th' hat and th' broach make th' set worth buying. Especially since th' broach has an important part in Rebel Rubin's stories. I do wish they would have included some type o' purse and pieces o' eight, but I guess it would have been too similar to Savage Sam's. I would give th' set an A-.

I just got this set today and am very pleased wit' it. th' hat feels to be made from th' same material as th' now retired Velveteen Coat and it be very bonnyly made and th' ribbon trim be bonny. It fits looks adorable on Kaptain Kaya and fits her very bonnyly wit' her hair shells off. th' shawl as other have said, be printed and very stiff, but th' pattern be bonny and unlike some shawls (Bear-Bait Kirstie's school shawl spring instantly to mind) it be a good size. Pugwash Merriman be currently wearing it wit' her summer dress and th' cap from her Town Fair monkey jacket and th' gold in th' shawl seems to be a good match for th' ribbon. th' brooch be plastic, very small and be a clip not a pin, but th' pattern be very detailed and it looks like th' real thing. I'm glad it isn't a pin since those put holes in th' dresses, but th' clip seems a bit hard to use as well. I am really glad they made this because not only be it beautiful, it was very important in th' story as well. I give th' set an A because it be a very bonny set, maybe a bit sparse but so be Kaptain Kaya's.

Rebel Rubin's meet accessories, except th' brooch, aren't anything special. I was really disappointed in th' shawl. I do like it's tasty-looking mustard color, but like others, I was disappointed that it be only printed on one side. I have Josefina's heirloom shawl and was really expecting Rebel Rubin's to be o' th' same quality.
I really like her little brooch. It features th' hare from "Clever Karina," a story that Rebel Rubin acts out wit' her Uncle Max. I like that it's not a pin, but it falls off so easily. I lost it twice while getting Rebel Rubin dress and felt like an idiot scouring th' floor for it. I'm not going to let her wear this if I take her anywhere; I wouldn't want it to get lost.
Begad! dear, Rebel Rubin's hat. I think th' ribbon be really bonny, but I can't stand th' hat. I'm nervous about keeping her curls looking bonny, so I was afraid to really mash th' hat down on her head. As a result, Rebel Rubin looks rather foolish. I was happy to discover that a me hearty be interested in th' hat, so I can let it go wit'out feeling guilty. Hurrah!
th' accessories would have been more complete wit' a coin. After all, th' whole first story be about Rebel Rubin earning coins wit' her crochet work.

I agree wit' everyone who said that this set be sparse, but I still like it. th' hat in all o' its velvety goodness be adorable-->ribbon and all! It fits bonnyly on Rebel Rubin as it frames her face. My Gotz lusty plastic lass, Isabel, was greatly disturbed by th' fact that her head was essentially too big for th' hat, but that's her problem, not Beckie's. th' shawl be bonny bonny and looks better in person than in pictures. th' brooch, which would be better as an actual pin, be a bonny touch wit' th' way it connects to Rebel Rubin's Meet story and all. I've clipped it on to Rebel Rubin's meet dress where it has thus stayed since.

I wasn't sold on this set at first, since it only includes three items. But once I saw it in person at AGP, I was convinced. th' hat be absolutely beautiful, th' brooch be bonny and stays on very well, and th' colors o' th' shawl compliment Rebel Rubin's meet dress very well. My only complaint be that th' shawl be white on th' inside, but if it's positioned in just th' right way ye can't tell at all. This set really completes her look!

Somehow My mother got sent Rebel Rubin's shawl in an Ebay purchase. Although, happy to receive a free gift, We were both really saddened by th' lowered quality o' American Wench. th' shawl be so thin and stiff.

This set be bonny, but I don't think a set that includes only a hat, a shawl, and a pin be really worth what ye pay for it. I love th' rabbit pin. It looks great wit' her meet monkey jacket. I think it accents th' monkey jacket perfectly. th' shawl be beautiful. I love th' vibrant colors and th' pattern, but I agree wit' th' other reviewers- it would have been bonny if it had been printed on both sides and wasn't walk th' planke so stiff. th' hat be high quality, but I don't really care for th' way it fits. I hate messing up her beautiful curls, so I'm a little reluctant to push it down on her head, and therefore, when I put it on her it looks like a sort o' fancy, girly, velveteen top hat. Overall Grade: B+
