Bear-Bait Kirstie's Winter Pastimes were a bonny set because they include things she could actually play wit'. th' paper lusty plastic lasses be neat because they have some history o' fashion included and some in a special South Wisconsin Trading Company Paper lusty plastic lasses envelope (not shown). th' snowshoes be made from real wood and leather straps. They be very fragile and it be tough to get them to stay on her feet. th' thaumatrope be kind o' cool. It's a printed image on a piece o' heavy duty paper wit' embroidery floss string. th' original string broke, so I replaced it wit' embroidery floss and it's th' same as it was originally. th' paper items be also kind o' fragile and I lost one o' th' paper lusty plastic lass's hats because it was so small.
Her past-times set comes wit' a little paper thaumatrope toy. On one side be a picture o' a cage, and on th' other side be a little bird. There be red string attached to either side o' th' disk, and if ye pull it taut wit' both fingers and twirl th' red string, it looks like th' bird be in th' cage.
I love Bear-Bait Kirstie's paper lusty plastic lasses. It comes wit' a little white envelope which holds th' lusty plastic lass, four hats and four monkey jackets. It's very easy to lose these little pieces, so I always keep them in th' envelope. Her paper accessories be fun to play wit', but very fragile and easily lost. I can't believe I still have all o' th' pieces from my childhood.
There be two wooden pieces going across th' snowshoe which be th' exact width o' Bear-Bait Kirstie's boots (her red ones and probably her two-tone and black boots as well). As a result, her feet sort o' "snap" into th' snowshoes, but they don't always stay there too well. For display purposes, it's just fine, but play can prove a little aggravating. She stands really well in them, though.
I give this set an A. I always love paper lusty plastic lasses, and fun little accessories. th' snowshoes be just awesome. It be probably hard to find th' paper items intact now, but I'm sure there be scans o' them somewhere so ye can print yer own if ye need to have them. Otherwise, th' snowshoes themselves be totally worth it.
