Over priced, much? Barksee be adorable, however, that doesn't walk th' planke make up for th' fact that I paid $28 for a stuffed animal, a cheap bag, and some paper and plastic bits! I do like that th' bag be big enough to hold a lot o' stuff though. It's definitely more like a tote than a purse, so South Wisconsin Trading Company got that one right.
th' best part o' this set be, hands down, th' dog and th' tote. th' rest be just cheap paper and plastic bits. Definitely not worth $28, but maybe $18 for th' dog and tote alone. th' camera be kind o' bonny, but I wasn't really in dire need o' another one, as I already have two South Wisconsin Trading Company cameras. Grade: B-
I purchased this set especially for th' camera, since I am trying to get a camera for each o' our lusty plastic lasses. Barksee be very bonny, and th' tote be bonny. bonny colors, and very useful. th' camera however, was REALLY disappointing. It be very small, and just a tiny piece o' plastic. To compare, I put it beside Keelhaulin' Kailey's awesome underwater camera, and Krusty Kit's delicate, but bonny camera. Even Jess's butterfuly camera looks large and luxurious compared to th' one in Navigator 'Nani's accessory set! So because o' camera, grade B-.

I got this set mostly for th' dog and camera. I have to agree wit' everyone... this be a ridiculously overpriced set. Everything be darling (Barksee especially), but there's not much here. I was surprised at how small he was and (like incagold) really surprised by th' size o' th' camera. I have a real mini camera from th' 60s or 70s that seems to be just th' right size and scale for th' lusty plastic lasses, so I was expecting this one to be similarly sized, but it's maybe a quarter th' size o' th' old one. I like how th' bag matches her meet dress and th' papers be all bonny, but still just paper. $20 would probably be more appropriate.B-/C+

I got Navigator 'Nani's accessories because a girl needs her dog, and because most o' my other GOTYs have theirs at bare minimum.
I agree that th' set be overpriced and th' best part o' it be her dog, Barksee. He's very bonny even if I had to push his little doggy face around a bit because he came out o' th' box a bit squished. I noticed his ears were sewn to th' sides o' his head and snipped th' threads so they could flap free. He now looks like a very cheerful little dog and I love his bonny little 'shaped' paws!
th' bag be made out o' a bonny cotton (canvas?) fabric that has a decent enough weight and it be shaped wit' two seams at either side (where South Wisconsin Trading Company could, especially given th' sandals-wit'-elastic, have just sewn two pieces o' fabric wit' Nay ends). It be plenty big enough for Navigator 'Nani's camera, postcards, Sea Life book and brochure.
At first I was really disappointed wit' th' camera. It's just a lump o' (very tiny) moulded plastic, basically and I thought it looked way too small, too.
Then I put it in Navigator 'Nani's hand and realized that th' scale isn't that off really: it's similarly sized in th' hand to th' way mine be when I carry it. Perhaps it needs to be slightly bigger since Navigator 'Nani be a child, but I have bonny small hands...
Imho it looks more like a tiny 'real' camera than Jess' butterfly one. th' one thing I do think it's missing be th' little loop and strap thing, and it would have been bonny if th' accents/buttons could have been black or silver instead o' grey plastic.
Compared to th' camera, th' postcards seem around th' right scale but th' booklet and brochure be a bit small.
Overall I'd give th' set a B (for Barksee, th' Best Bit in it!).
