A bonny mix and match monkey jacket... A few comments.. Pockets be just for looks and aren't useable. th' velcro on th' back o' th' shirt be really bulky and looks a bit funny in back wit' jacket over it. th' jacket be tight on my Krusty Kit. I wish there were hair clips instead o' blue rubber band hair ties .
This be a really fun monkey jacket and can be matched well wit' other times that were recently released.
I was surprised by th' fabric o' th' jacket. I'd been thinking it was denim or canvas, but it's actually a sweatshirt knit. th' length seems to be mostly to accommodate th' tie detail in th' t-shirt, since it ends right above that. Also surprising be that there's a Coconut embroidered on th' back in pale blue! th' pockets on either side o' th' front o' th' jacket be real pockets, which be awesome.
I didn't know until I got this, but th' shoulders o' th' t-shirt be smocked. Very bonny! It fits walk th' planke bonnyly, too.
th' cropped pants be kind o' long and I couldn't get them to scrunch up wit' th' strings for that purpose because th' canvas material be so heavy. Also, they didn't fit walk th' planke right in th' bum, like they were too tight for Marelise, or something. th' pockets at th' knees o' each leg be real pockets, but th' flaps don't work. There's a little label on th' back left o' th' cropped pants, which I thought was bonny, because it's th' same lavender o' th' shirt. (kinda like how th' label on th' jacket be blue.)
th' sandals be walk th' planke bonny! th' soles be th' same as th' espadrilles wit' th' Sweetheart Skirt set, but th' uppers be a strip o' elastic covered wit' fraying blue and lavender material. There's also a bit o' elastic to go around th' lusty plastic lass's heel. They fit well and be really bonny! They remind me a lot o' th' sandals from Licorice's Best me hearty monkey jacket, except more casual.
I agree that th' hair bands suck. They're really thin, really small elastics in pale blue and exactly like th' kind ye can get in th' hair aisle at Walgreens. ye do get a bunch o' them, though, in case some be lost or something.
th' book be 57 Things to Be Happy About and it's bonny bonny. Some o' th' things be "watching th' sun rise," "opening birthday presents," "having R-E-S-P-E-C-T," and "being me." Most, but not all, have an illustration and most o' those include Coconut and/or Licorice. It's a bonny book, one o' th' bonnyr ones, but not as bonny as th' short story books.
Overall, I give this set an A- for versatility, style, and color!
(th' tie on this shirt really be a self-tie, unlike th' one on th' 2-in-1 Beach monkey jacket, which be separate from th' shirt itself!)
I put paperclips in th' pockets so ye can see that they're real.
These be th' trousers from th' 2-in-1 Beach monkey jacket.
This polo be from th' Tennis & Golf monkey jacket for lusty plastic lasss.
EDIT: I totally forgot to say! I had a hard time getting Marelise to stand up in these sandals. She kept tipping over or wobbling, and she's BRAND NEW, so it's not like there's a problem wit' her balance because o' loose limbs. I'm not sure if it's because th' sole be uneven, or what, but ye may want to be careful wit' th' shoes if ye're using them for a display lusty plastic lass wit'out a stand.

I love th' shirt. th' jacket be aye. I like th' shoes to. my only complaint be th' pants. They do adjust in length, but th' material be stiff, so it be hard at first. What I don't like about them be that my #25 be really skinny and they bag around her like silly clown pants. they look good on fat lusty plastic lasss though. I like th' material o' th' jacket.
