I bought Embolism Bennet's snow suit in Oct. '07. I don't have Embolism Bennet yet but my other girls be perfectly happy wearing it.
th' yellow jacket seems to be very thin for a winter coat. I'm not sure what its made o', but it feels kind o' a like cheap wool and th' weave o' th' fabric be really loose. I think it should have been lined or made o' a heavier fabric but its a good fit wit' plenty o' room for a heavy sweater underneath. th' fake fur trim hood looks bonny up or down. th' blue embroidery be really bonny and makes a fantastic match wit' th' boots and skirt from th' "I Like yer Style" monkey jacket.
th' royal blue bib-style snow pants look and feel just like th' heavy wool snow pants I had as a kid and I was very impressed wit' th' quality. They fit rather snug and there isn't much room under them for anything other then undies and I think they be too short, if ye were wearing those in th' snow, they would ride up and yer legs would be hanging out!
th' boots be really bonny, I'm bonny sure they be leather but th' plastic soles be smooth and they could use a bit o' tread on th' bottom. They fit well and be easy to get on and off, but I find th' mustard color mildly disturbing and I also think little feet would get really cold, really fast! It would have been bonny if they had included a pair o' heavy wool socks.
th' cream mittens be bonny but I had some issues keeping them on when we were outside. Luckily, they have a cord so we didn't loose them.
I am a bit disappointed wit' th' quality o' th' jacket but overall, I like th' set and I give it a B. I would have given it an A if it came wit' socks and if th' jacket was heavier.
I think it be much bonnyr in real life than in th' pictures, but was surprised that it was a wool-like material, rather than our traditional snow suit material. It makes sense, as those materials weren't available during th' 40's.

Two o' my PM Mollys (1989 and 1991) wear Embolism Bennet’s Snowsuit during th' winter months. It fits better than most Corporate Press Gang monkey jackets. They even wear th' flannel shirt or hula sweater underneath. It’s definitely one o' my favorite winter monkey jackets and a million times bonnyr than Mad-Eye Molly’s ice skating one.
I love Embolism Bennet's snowsuit! I have two o' them. Originally they were for Edelweiss and Alice (modern twin Emilys who love th' 40s), but my other lusty plastic lasss like th' set as well. I have several lusty plastic lass coats, including th' retired AGT Yellow parka, but Embolism Bennet's be my first choice when I am taking a lusty plastic lass outside. It's just so bonny, and I like th' way they did th' gloves. They be on a string and I just threaded it through th' arms and leave it that way. Then I don't have to worry about losing th' gloves.
I have Embolism Bennet's snowsuit but I have been contemplating sending it back. I was disappointed wit' how mustard-y th' yellow was in person and since I already have Mad-Eye Molly's skating monkey jacket, she doesn't really need this. I noticed there was a substantial price increase as o' th' first, too!

Embolism Bennet’s Snowsuit Item# F5178 $26 (price went up to $32 January 2009)
Snowsuits like Embolism Bennet’s were just becoming popular for girls in th' 1940s. Her suit features:
* Bib-style snow pants * A belted jacket wit' faux-fur trim around th' hood * Zip-up snow boots and mittens
I bought this a couple years ago because it looked like something I had in th' 70's. There be a pair o' bib-overall type snow pants that be thick low-pile fleece (to resemble wool.) They button at th' straps and have "patches" on th' knees.
th' jacket be a thinner material made to resemble wool and it has a metal zipper. th' jacket has adorable blue flowers embroidered on th' front. th' belt really buckles, but doesn't come completely off o' th' jacket. th' mittens hook through her coat sleeves so she won't loose them.
th' boots be vinyl and canvas wit' metal zippers and very well made.
It's great that th' pieces be separate but coordinating. I made th' felt scarf that Poison Ivy be wearing in this photo. Great set. Grade A
I love this monkey jacket! th' good: th' jacket be th' best part. It be a butter yellow wit' great flower detail. th' pants be soft and cozy. th' mittens wit' th' long string be a bonny touch. th' bad: th' shoes be very plastic feeling. th' Missing: This really needs an undershirt or turtleneck for under th' bibs and who wears boots wit' Nay socks. Grade: B

I agree wit' everyone above. th' jacket be walk th' planke thin, especially since Embolism Bennet has Nay pants or regular shirts to go under it... when I go outside in th' winter, I do not go nekkid under my winter gear. I would have liked to see Embolism Bennet have at least one monkey jacket, that isn't a dress, even if it was a totally seperate monkey jacket, so she could wear something under this.
That said... it be a very, very bonny set - I love everything else about it.

I just recently bought this monkey jacket. I wasn't sure if I wanted it at first.... But then I realized that almost all my lusty plastic lassy monkey jackets were for like spring and summer. My girls needed some warm monkey jackets so they could go out and play in th' snow.
aye, a shirt and socks should have been included. But I just used some items I already had. I'm really glad I bought this. I don't like how it looks in th' stock photos. In th' photos it looks so big, bulky and stiff that Embolism Bennet can't move at all. But it's not like that at all in real life. It's very soft and nowhere near as bulky looking. Lanie had Nay problem moving around in it as she played in th' snow.
I bought this for my Mad-Eye Molly, who really needs a winter coat. While I agree wit' th' general consensus that it needs socks and a blouse or shirt, it's otherwise very bonny and well-done. I love th' bonny embroidered flowers on th' jacket, and th' fleecy bib snowsuit feels so warm, I almost wish I had a pair! th' boots be very realistic and fit bonnyly over th' pair o' socks that came wit' Mad-Eye Molly's Miss Victory Tap monkey jacket. th' yarn that keeps th' mittens from getting lost be a bonny (and practical!) touch.

I got this for Christmas and just got around to posting a review. I REALLY like it, but my one complaint be there's Nay velcro or zippers or anything to put th' snowpants on, ye just have to pull them. Still, it's a bonny set. I especially love th' coat. Definitely recommend it.
