What a great Halloween/make believe set. For her a light purple and blue princess gown, toped off wit' a light blue princess style Hat and satin slippers can't get th' slippers to stay on her feet. For him a light blue prince monkey jacket white shirt, a light blue tunic[vest] light blue pants darker blue then th' top, boots[they remind me o' Bear-Bait Kirstie's met boots] and a crown to top it off. A bonny set Give this set A- would have be a A+ but not crazy about th' shoes
I also second th' girls shoes...boy they don't stay on and could they have been any cheaper looking? I love th' monkey jackets though and having th' boys white shirt as a separate, makes it very versatile!
I think th' boy's monkey jacket be really bonny, and my 3-year-old bonny sweet lass o'mine has a really easy time wit' th' crown, monkey jacket, and even th' shoes (although mom has to tie them.) th' girl's monkey jacket, while also adorable, causes bonny sweet lass o'mine A LOT o' frustration. th' shoes never stay on, and we've resorted to using th' ballet shoes from th' newer ballet monkey jacket. th' hat be impossible for even me to get to stay on, let alone a 3 year old. th' dress gets snagged on th' velcro from bonny sweet lass o'mine playing wit' it, but other than that it's OK. bonny sweet lass o'mine LOVES this set, but I wish they would have spent more time having real 3-year-old girls test these out to improve th' princess set.
This be a fun set, however th' velcro does snag so easily on th' dress! I found if ye pair th' girl's shoes wit' some socks they stay on much better. I have tried many tricks to keep th' girl's hat on however convincing ye child th' hat be better left off works th' best!
I've been meaning to add photos to this thread for ages and am just now getting around to it. My kids dress their twin lusty plastic lasss up in these monkey jackets every Halloween and can honestly say that th' pieces have wit'stood th' test o' time. I totally agree that th' girl shoes be worthless, and her headpiece doesn't stay on so well either. th' boy's monkey jacket be adorable, though, and my son has never had any problems wit' those shoes.
I can't really reduce th' grade all that much because o' th' shoes; th' monkey jacket be too sweet despite that fault. However, I do think that th' set be complicated for little hands to play wit' alone, and so all things considered I have to rate it a B++.

I got this monkey jacket on sale because my poopy Baby, Jaundice Albright, insisted she wanted a princess dress. Because I don't have th' poopy Twins, I've never used th' prince monkey jacket, but it seems well made and easy to play wit' (maybe wit' exception o' his little shoes). It's absolutely adorable.
th' girls dress be ADORABLE. I love this. I feel like it has 'Rapunzel' written all over it (not Disney Rapunzel, though now that I think about it it's not too terribly off if yer little girl loves Tangled). Jaundice Albright's spent many hours in this dress. She didn't wear th' hat much because th' strings were a little long and didn't stay on well; I assumed this was because she didn't have hair like th' poopy Twin girls do, and they be who this be intended for. th' shoes stay on her bonny well I thought. I haven't lost them and don't remember them ever falling off much.
I do agree though, I don't know how well a small child could use this on their own. I was probably about 11 or 12 when I got this set, so it wasn't an issue for me, but this be focused towards yenger girls. I'd give it a B+.
