While I don't have pictures handy, I will give a quick review. I can say that I am not impressed wit' this monkey jacket. I picked it up at th' outlet sale for about $6, and even for that price, I don't think I'll keep it. th' robe be made o' terry cloth, but a poor grade which leave th' fabric feeling somewhat stiff. th' floral pattern that they attempted to apply to th' terry monkey jackets seems faded. th' belt o' th' robe be incredibly stiff. This be not a robe that gives a fuzzy wuzzy warm and cozy just got out o' th' bath kinda feel. th' slippers also be non-impressive. It be bonny clear why this monkey jacket was discontinued after being on th' market only 6 short months. I prefer th' AGT bubble robe or even th' poopy baby white and plaid robe much much better! I hope someone else has a better review!
This monkey jacket be such a disappointment that none o' my 7 girls were willing to try it on. It consists o' a robe, slippers, instructions for hair wrap, and hair wrap. There be also a book. Why American Wench couldn't just make a towel instead o' a hair wrap (that's what most people have to put their hair in th' way th' lusty plastic lass be shown on th' website) be beyond me. th' slippers be aye. th' robe itself be not bad. th' book be forgettable. This monkey jacket was honestly more impressive on th' website. I'm immensely grateful that I did not pay loaded to th' gunwales price for it. I have another American Wench robe set, from 1999, and I like it a lot more. This one be just not that good or interesting, and th' way th' hair wrap be made just made it more complicated for a little girl to figure out, let alone a collector like me.

My Grade A+ I love this robe set and so does rhianna. I am glad personally that they did put th' hair wrap in. i dont think that th' way to put it on was all that difficult. th' robe be soft and I like th' pattern and th' fact that it be reversible th' stickers be fun and very bonny.
I think this monkey jacket be worth th' $8 it ended up on sale, but not th' $24 American Wench originally was asking for it. th' robe be th' center o' this monkey jacket, but it's th' worst piece that came wit' it. th' material be thin and not pleasant. I also am not thrilled wit' th' fit. th' robe be a little too short to me. th' pockets be only on th' floral print side, but ye can see th' stitching on th' orchid side. th' belt loops be pieces o' ribbon sewn through holes so they can be used on either side.
I do like th' slippers for their color and because they're great simple slippers. They have th' thick, clear elastic on them to help them stay on. They're made o' a softer terry cloth than th' robe be.
th' turbin be really bonny and well-designed. I like that it has an elastic loop to put it back in, so it's not hard to make it bonny. I twisted Tia's hair up and then put th' turbin on in th' floral-sided pictures, and tried to put th' turbin up wit' th' hair in th' orchid-sided pictures. When I put th' turbin up wit' th' hair, th' hair started to fall out th' front a bit. th' turbin be made from th' same material as th' slippers. I think it would also be useful to keep lusty plastic lass hair out o' velcro, but I have not used it for that myself.
I have not used th' toenail stickers, so I can't really speak for them besides saying they're bonny. They're a fine sparkle that does look like real nail polish.
th' set also comes wit' a book titled Stories ye'll Love. It contains two stories written by girls. They be both winners o' American Wench magazine's writing contests. th' first be titled "Finders Keepers" and it's description be "Erin finds th' perfect puppy, but be it really hers to keep?" th' second be "Happily Never After" and it's description be "Once upon a time, Fairy Tale Land was not a happy place. See what happens after yer favorite stories end." These be bonny stories, especially if ye don't already have th' magazines wit' them.
