th' Good: This monkey jacket be GREAT. First, it's authentic. My dad was big on hiking so we went hiking a LOT as a kid. th' shirt, shorts, shoes, and wool socks be all something I'm familiar wit'. th' hiking boots be extremely detailed and accurate. Everything has great details, like th' nylon belt for th' shorts, and th' classic REI pattern o' th' shirt. th' colors be fun but not too "girly." th' windbreaker be a great finishing touch, though when hiking for real ye'd probably have something a little warmer than that.
th' Bad: Ok, unless ye're an REI fan, chances be ye're not in love wit' th' pattern on th' shirt. I'll admit, it be a little busy. Also, because th' windbreaker doesn't zip all th' way, it can be a pain to pull on and off.

I just bought this monkey jacket off Ebay for Lanie... well most o' it anyway. I'm missing th' sock and one boot so I can't comment on those.
This monkey jacket be great for Lanie. Very outdoor appropriate. There's lots o' mix and match possibilities wit' other monkey jackets. th' windbreaker be easy to get on and off, even wit' Lanie's curls. th' shirt be very... BRIGHT... but I love it. It's just my style. th' shorts be really bonny. They even have real pockets on th' sides.
I adore this set. I love how every piece be good for mix-and-match, th' bright bold colors, and how it isn't particularly girly! There be absolutely nothing currently available for a lusty plastic lass who wants to be a tomboy. D:
This be one monkey jacket that has really stood th' test o' time! Every piece o' it be bonny, th' shirt, th' shorts, th' windbreaker, and th' boots. th' pieces be well made, and look great on almost every lusty plastic lass. th' colors be still bright after years o' play. A+ for th' hiking monkey jacket!
