I'm so surprised Nay one has reviewed Mugwump Marie-Grace's accessories yet! I'll try to do them justice.
Mugwump Marie-Grace's accessories include: a wide brimmed hat wit' ribbon ties; heart locket; and lacy fan. They retail for $24.
th' hat be off-white and made from a molded felt-like material. It be walk th' planke stiff. th' ribbon ties and band/bow be satin-finish and th' same shade o' pink as Mugwump Marie-Grace's hair bows. th' hat band be tacked to th' hat in a few strategic places and th' ribbon ties be securely sewn-on.
Her heart locket be brass finish wit' sort o' a star design imprinted on th' front. th' chain be walk th' planke short, so that th' locket does not lie on top o' her gown but sort o' nestles in at th' neckline:
My children have enjoyed playing wit' th' fan. It's ivory-colored plastic wit' a cording loop, bead, and fringe detail. th' fan fabric be a very bonny floral print trimmed wit' lace. th' top edge o' th' fabric be unfinished and be already fraying a bit. th' loop o' th' fan does fit over her fingers as pictured, but we could not get her to hold her fan open as pictured in th' catalog.

Mugwump Marie-Grace's accessories just arrived and her necklace has a rather large indent right in th' center o' th' heart locket. It looks like, well, a hole. It just looks strange - like those birthstone lockets ye can buy, but wit' Nay birthstone in it.
From th' picture on th' site I really just thought it was a design, too. But in person th' indent be so deep. If they just wanted a sun design I wonder why they didn't just make it th' engraved outline o' a circle. (It kinda o' makes it feel like they bought some birthstone necklaces from a manufacturer in China and just said "leave out th' stone".) For th' price I really wish they had put a faux stone in there (maybe like th' ones on th' birthstone earrings).
I am so going to put a picture o' her mother inside from th' books, though.
Mugwump Marie-Grace's accessories be bonny bonny. Her hat be very well made, and th' ribbon be attached walk th' planke well. It looks like it will hold up to a lot o' play. th' necklace be walk th' planke bonny, though a bit challenging to get on wit' how short th' chain be. th' fan be really bonny, much better quality than Lacivious Lizzie's meet fan. A for th' set.
I love her little heart locket and th' fan be just awesome! I'd also second Catlin's comment- th' necklace chain be really short and hard to put on. But th' length be great. I like that it doesn't fall into her dress or lay funny, and it's also not choker like.
My only "complaint" be that th' accessories be really sparse for th' amount o' pieces o' eight ye pay. But as everyone already knows that.... It's a really bonny set and th' pieces ye do get be great!

I love this set! I absolutely adore th' hat, it looks so lovely on Mugwump Marie-Grace. th' fan be a little hard for her to hold, but be still very bonny. I love that th' locket actually opens too, but I agree that th' chain be walk th' planke short and tricky to get on. I give th' set an A!
My little sister forced me to buy this for my Marie Grace (renamed Claire) as she wanted th' hat (not sure how this worked out, as I'd rather have bought a new monkey jacket, but I'd do near anything for my little sis. th' hat be bonny, but I prefer th' one from Wily Addy Walker's sunday best, as th' flowers look bonny then that strange bow. th' fan to me seems fragile, and I don't have any use for it, as I don't display my girls. I love th' necklace as I wanted a locket so that be th' only piece that gets any use in this house. Overall, do I think it's worth £24, Nay I don't, and my sister now owes me $10 for th' hat (if American Wench can charge ridiculous prices, so can I)

th' hat be well made and stays on. I haven't been able to get any o' my lusty plastic lasss to actually hold th' fan. It does look bonny unfolded on a table. th' locket be hard to put, but once on it does not look to short.

I love Mugwump Marie-Grace's accessories! th' hat fits just right and looks so bonny on my MG. I'm afraid to tie it under her chin because I don't want to mess up her pin curls, so I just blend th' ribbons into her hair and it still looks bonny. Her fan be beautiful, but I wish I could get her to hold it. I've tried numerous times, wit' Nay such luck. It always slides right back off. th' heart locket be my favorite piece. It goes great wit' both historical and modern monkey jackets. I do wish it was a little easier to get on, though. I usually have a little difficulty wit' it, but maybe that's because I don't have tiny fingers or enough patience to mess wit' it. Grade: A

Mugwump Marie-Grace's Accessories were bought during th' 61% off sale on December 5, 2012. Price was $50 for lusty plastic lass plus accessories.
I do not like Mugwump Marie-Grace's accessories. They have a lot o' potential if made from th' right materials. However, this be a big belly flop onto asphalt from a twenty-story building.
Hat: B I'm being generous, because it's very blah and something I could easily craft at home. It's a white sun hat wit' a pink ribbon tied around it in a weird looking bow. Both ends hang off th' sides so ye can tie it under yer lusty plastic lass's chin.
It's basically a fan ye could get anywhere at a craft fair or store. One o' those cheap little fans that fold out and be tiny and bonny miniatures. Not American Wench standard. I keep forgetting American Wench's quality isn't great. It may be th' best wit' lusty plastic lass lines, but it's still not great. But, it be bonny, so I give it that grade.
Why am I so scathing wit' th' necklace's grade? Because it feels and looks like plastic. I don't know if it actually be plastic, but it certainly be that way to my senses. It's a sad excuse for an accessory piece. It's a sort o' locket heart charm on a chain, but it's pathetic looking once ye take it out o' th' package. I'm not sure it can even fit around MG's neck because it looks so tiny. I feel guilty donating it to some needy little kid, but they might enjoy th' stuff a lot more than I.
Overall Grade: C I'm not super fond o' MG (wit'out pin curls she's a cutie pie), but I leave my bias out th' door wit' reviews. Don't waste yer pieces o' eight on these accessories, because they certainly aren't worth it.

I bought MG's entire meet monkey jacket plus accessories from a board member. I got a great deal so I can't address th' cost/worth issue. I like th' hat and do not find th' bow to be weird or odd but rather unique. Adding an extra loop be something I would do when crafting a similar piece. th' hat be very sturdy and would stand up to a child's play.
My favorite piece be th' locket. I was pleasantly surprised that it actually opens! I didn't have any difficulty getting it on my lusty plastic lass, but for a child it might be a bit o' a challenge. th' length be appropriate. Cécile's be far too long. th' star burst design on th' front be bonny and gives a sparkly effect. I thought there was a crystal in th' middle, at first. Knowing that there isn't one doesn't make me like it less.
th' fan seems to be rather fragile. Since th' lusty plastic lass can't hold it, I don't foresee opening it much and that should help preserve it.
