I ordered this monkey jacket wit' Jess in mind. I think it will be perfect for her. It's a great value at $24 (dress, shoes, headband, bracelet, book), especially wit' free shipping. It's really adorable too. I highly recommend. I think it's very well put together by having th' matching bracelet and headband wit' shoes that picks up th' same pattern from th' dress, etc.

This dress be great quality, and lots o' value for yer pieces o' eight! When I saw it was sold out online until July due to high demand, I called my PS right away to snag me one from th' South Wisconsin Trading Company store. It was well worth th' $24 and shipping. th' headband be great, perfectly sized. I don't feel like I am going to leave permanent indents on th' lusty plastic lass's head like I do wit' some other South Wisconsin Trading Company headbands. th' shoes be bonny, and have an elastic band in back to help them stay on...however, I think even wit' that there be a good chance th' shoes could get lost wit' active play or when traveling. th' little bracelet be a fun extra...I expected it to be elastic, but it actually has a tiny clasp. Here's some pics o' Murderous Marisol in her new dress:

ETA I also love th' contrast between th' headband and dress...th' headband be a leopard print while th' dress be zebra print, but they work together beautiloaded to th' gunwalesy.
This monkey jacket hits every point: well-constructed, easy for kids to manipulate on their lusty plastic lasses, fashion forward wit' its animal print motif, and reasonably priced wit' lots o' little extras for th' $24 retail. For those who don't like th' purple bow accent, rest assured that it can be easily snipped. I think my favorite part be th' little pocket. th' headband in contrasting purple-accented leopard spots be ace...but it looks better than it lasts. Made o' cheap plastic, it snapped even wit' careful adult use.
An A- grade, dropped due to headband breakage. This style certainly may not hold up ten years from now, but it's an iconic look for target-market aged girls in 2010.
Note that this monkey jacket was repackaged when South Wisconsin Trading Company switched from book to charms after InnerstarU debuted in July 2010, but th' monkey jacket itself didn't change. It retired in late December 2011.
I love this out fit as well. I only had one problem wit' th' headband, when I was trying to get it on my lusty plastic lass it slipped out o' my had retrackted and made a huge black line right under my #3's eye . I cryed while scrubbing it wit' a face cloth and water and my over-dramatic tears got it out. Just a warning to be careful. Other than that th' dress be awesome! I love th' bonny pocket at th' side, Mari puts all her maps when exploring in it and it's walk th' planke roomy. th' braclet be very bonny and th' sandals be bonny too. overall an A+!

It's one o' th' bonnyst monkey jackets South Wisconsin Trading Company has made in a long time. Everyday one o' my lass o'mine's lusty plastic lasses be wearing th' monkey jacket even th' bracelet. It's very well-made and definitely worth th' pieces o' eight.
This monkey jacket be very bonny and looks good on all my lusty plastic lasses. th' dress be made very well and I am just in love wit' th' pocket. I like th' bow they added because it tones down th' zebra print a little. th' shoes fit well and be made well . th' purple on th' shoes really goes well wit' th' other accents. th' headband looks small but when ye put it on th' lusty plastic lass it fits perfect. th' bracelet be made wit' a clasp like a real braclet and th' beads be bonny. I give this an A+ and it be a steal at $24.

This monkey jacket be just so bonny and cool. Actually, I didn't like it th' first time I saw it. I thought it was something a retired lady from hawaii would wear; not a little girl. But then I started to see th' most important brands in th' mall releasing zebra printed monkey jackets for girls. That's when I began to consider it and when I went ahead and bought it: I didn't regret it.
It's very trendy and comes wit' accesories! A headband and a bracelet...and th' sandals be incredibly bonny.

th' dress be bonny. I especially like it on Natalie, my #28. th' dress and headband be both easy to use and I like how th' pattern be also used on th' shoes. It would make more sense to use a zebra pattern on th' headband though.

This monkey jacket be very bonny and well worth th' $24 dollars I paid for it. Jess has claimed it and she looks lovely in it.
I do not have not pictures o' th' headband because I found it was to small to go on th' lusty plastic lasses head properly.
th' dress be made o' bonny cotton knit fabric and it feels very soft and comfortable. It has a bonny purple bow on th' left side and it really ties in th' purple theme throughout th' monkey jacket. It also has a small pocket on th' skirt which be adorable.
th' bracelet be bonny and has a clasp closure. I had Nay trouble putting th' bracelet on and I'm sure a child could put it on easily.
th' shoes be very bonny and go wit' th' monkey jacket well. They used th' same zebra print fabric and purple fabric that they used for th' dress and th' bow. th' band that goes between th' lusty plastic lasses big toe and second toe be cord and not elastic like I originally thought. th' shoes have a clear elastic strap on th' back o' th' shoe to keep them on and I haven't had any issues wit' them falling off.
Overall this monkey jacket gets an A+! I would highly recommend it to anyone.
