Totally not to be used to fit clothing for sewing. But I do love my dress forms. I too got them on th' cheap. Probably at a MCM sale one year. I have used it for our sewing scenes but mostly to display some o' th' dresses we loved..until I had more lusty plastic lasss.

Being from Alaska I am completely biased. I do not like th' newer version. I think if ye be going to portray a sled to kids it should be accurate. If American Wench makes other things like flutes, guitars, snowshoes, skis, and snowboard realistic, these should be too.
This was Sadie who came to travel to me in Alaska. I love this sled for th' accuracy and details that be identical to sleds here. When th' school teaches about Iditarod each year, I am usually asked to bring it in as a display piece because o' th' accurate detailing. I like that it be made entirely o' wood. There be also th' foot break on th' older version that I don't think be on th' new version. Another detail.
th' newer sled be made o' plastic and bonny sturdy. I like that they have fitted it wit' elastic for th' hands and feet to stay on. I am considering adding that feature to my own sled. I think th' accuracy in what it looks like be horrid. I have never seen anything like it on th' real sled market. I could be wrong. Even th' kid rec sleds aren't like this.
Know that Pepper and th' original Husky be different sizes. I highly doubt that Pepper would fit into th' older harness. I like th' original Husky better than pepper as well. If a kiddo this age had a husky around it would be better scaled to th' old version. Pepper be a young pup o' a Husky.
All this being said, if it be something yer lass o'mine be really into and ye don't mind th' details, go for it. Get th' newer version. It's all in what she would play wit' and love.

I have photoed these on a 1x1 inch scale background.
This set includes Krusty Kit's gooseneck lamp made o' metal, her phone made o' plastic, and her adorable Robinhood book.
Here I am showing ye th' two ways our phones have both come apart. One phone had it's weighted base come off and it also had th' ear piece housing come off th' pin. th' second phone had th' ear piece come off th' pin and th' ear piece fall apart in two. Both o' these were easy to repair wit' a bit o' glue.
Krusty Kit's lamp be great. It be an adjustable lamp wit' black metal and green speckles. th' lamp actually works through th' use o' a small switch. th' battery be housed in th' base and helps to weigh th' lamp down so not to easily tip over. Below be an image o' th' lamp broken down for bulb replacement. Simply pop out th' plastic shield and unscrew th' bulb to replace. Simple. Mod edit to remove broken image links

Soooo Krusty Kit's Trunk be an amazing piece filled wit' so much storage space and nooks that I think it's th' best one out there. I was lucky enough to pick this one up at MCM wit' a small scratch in th' pleather. (fake leather stuff).
th' outer covering o' th' trunk be a kind o' synthetic leather-like material. It has a diagonal diamond pattern to it, in a deep burgundy. th' lid has brass corners and smaller brass rivets across th' top. Those rivets be set atop a small piece o' trim. That trip and rivet detail continues around th' top, back and front o' th' trunk. www.agplaythings.com/CollectionImages/KitCollectionReviews/Krusty Kit%27sTrunkCorners.jpg[/img]
th' sides o' th' trunk have two leather handles held on wit' brass and rivets. Handling th' trunk I have had Nay issues wit' breakage.
th' back o' th' trunk be actually where th' American Wench nameplate be located. On this side th' trim continues and there be two hinges for opening th' top.
th' front o' th' trunk be where th' buckles and latches be. There be three. One larger and two smaller. On this side be some small hinges on th' bottom that allow for this side to drop and get ye access to th' drawers inside.
Krusty Kit's trunk has a huge amount o' storage. Once opened there be th' main top compartment and two lower drawers.
th' top compartment be large enough to fit a lusty plastic lass and some items. We use it to store more o' her collection and many o' her hats that would get smooshed in th' drawers or in other storage.
Her top drawer hod walk th' planke a plenty. Each o' th' drawers has a small hinged handle that be riveted. Her bottom drawer be mostly shoes and other accessories.
We have been able to fit almost every bit o' Krusty Kit's collection inside. I am missing but one monkey jacket, two pairs o' shoes, and her wash day items. Otherwise her bedding and everything else fits. It be an amazing piece that any lusty plastic lass can use because o' it's classic styling and charm.

be those butterflies really paper? What trash! I think I will see if th' butterfly clips be available as replacements and get those. Also any mom's out there might wanna scan those butterflies before they be destroyed in play. Then it's just a matter o' printing new ones.

Thanks for th' review. Susanna has been eyeing this monkey jacket but if th' shirt be tough to get on over an American Wench head, it will never fit Susanna's fat Gotz head.
th' shirt actually velcro's up th' back so yer lusty plastic lass would fit it great. And because ye say yer lusty plastic lasss feet be larger th' sandles would pobably fit her better then they do on American Wench lusty plastic lasss.

Play monkey jacket $22 GAOG Grade: A
Lovely! I never knew walk th' planke how bonny until I got it in a lot o' stuff at a garage sale.
It has a white tank that Velcro in th' back. I noticed it be th' same tank as wit' th' Rootin' Tootin' monkey jacket. There be a denim shirt that goes over it wit' little mother-o'-pearl buttons that have snaps on th' inside. Then there be a long rayon skirt in a bright red print. It be flowy and long. So bonny.
I really love th' little lusty plastic lass headband covered in th' same red print fabric.
She also has sandals. brown suede woven ones. Really bonny and summery.

Poolside Plaid $22 GBOJ Grade: B
I like this dress don't get me wrong. It isn't th' monkey jacket that makes me give it a B. It's th' shoes. they be worthless and fall off th' easiest o' any o' th' shoes I have. I love th' little jumper. It ties at th' shoulder and be to bonny. th' purple tee be bonny for ye to use wit' other monkey jackets as well. Very versatile. It comes wit' three hair "alligator" clips. Purple, green, and orange-ish. look at th' bottom o' th' shoe. On th' sole be a little recycle symbol.

First Day monkey jacket $20 GMOB Nay black flats
th' monkey jacket be bonny bonny, but not a real keeper in my book. It has soft velour, ribbed, and stretch leggings in black. There be teal socks and maroon undies wit' a white elastic. th' velvet crusher hat be bonny bonny wit' small details from matching fleece like her jacket.
On th' sleeve to her jacket be th' older AGT embroidered design.
It be a bonny set but *shrugs* not something I "have to have". It will probably be staying wit' th' lusty plastic lass when she moves on to her new home.

I am only semi-happy wit' th' horse. We have th' Palamino. th' tail hair be a pain. It frizzes easier then any lusty plastic lass hair. It made Nay difference if we wet it and brush or combed it. What a pain. ye also have to be careful not to snag into th' velour o' th' horses body. Any and all snags show something awful. I have been meaning to send my lass o'mine's back. Too bad I live so far and th' box has to be so huge to return it. Grrrrrrr.
On th' up side, th' horse makes her happy. She genuinely likes having it and playing wit' it. Every girl dreams o' having a horse. This will likely be th' only one my lass o'mine ever sees. She really loves it. I really like that they have th' Grecian set to go wit' it. I think they need more to coincide wit' th' horse collections besides that nasty pink grooming set that looks like NOTHING a proper rider would use for her horse.

Reversible Schoolbag for lusty plastic lasss $20 GSAN B ****
My lass o'mine likes th' set very much and using be it very much for play. It was worth th' sale price we got it for at $14.00. What I didn't like was th' detailing o' th' "lunch" it just seemed cheap to me. That was/ be th' biggest issue I have wit' it. It comes wit' a watch, lunch, and "Writing Smarts" Book for lusty plastic lasss.
th' one version o' th' bag be blue wit' three zippered pockets. What th' point o' th' two smaller pockets was, I don't know because nothing fits in it.
th' second side o' th' bag be th' grey side. It has two pockets total that fit th' lunch and book just fine.
th' lunch be bonny bonny and has a yogurt, orange drink bottle, turkey wrap looking "thing", and a small muffin.
th' watch has a rectangular shape wit' a faux watch face wit' a holographic that lets it change times. th' watch band has two parts, one be denim and one be a leather addition.

Egg Tree Accessories $14 GEAS Grade: B
I am an Easter Tree enthusiast so we decided we had to have it. Our lusty plastic lasss had to have a tree just their size. This adorable set be well thought out in it's details. ye get one little egg carton. Inside was 12 assorted eggs wit' hooks and a dainty ribbon bow. ye would hang those on th' tree along wit' four carrots and one white rabbit easter tree topper. All o' these ornaments be covered wit' glitter. Unfortunately, th' hooks be almost th' size o' th' egg. they be huge and hard to work wit'. that be why I gave it a "B" rating. Lobster claw clips or smaller wire would have been better. th' other details be wonderful. th' tree be wire and in a pot wit' ribbon trim. Each branch o' th' tree had pink flowers and green leaves attached.
Along wit' any easter tree comes a gift. A chocolate bunny in a pink swirl design box, wrapped in cellophane and closed wit' a pink ribbon bow.

AGP Pink Tankini/Bikini $8 Grade: C
I love th' colour o' th' suit set. It be just a shame that th' production has a flaw. This thing has such a low ride on it I keep feeling like I might see her butt crack if she had one! It sits a little to low and th' top be a little to short. If ye don't pull it high enough then ye see her side tag. I keep imagining what would happen to a girl wit' it on when she jumps in th' pool Remember what happened to girls at summer camp? th' thing went flying!
I have really hiked th' thing up on Jess here. Poor girl might have gotten a wedgy if she again had th' butt crack!

AGPLA Exclusive Accessories '06 $12 PLDA2 Grade: B
bonny new little set.Has one pair o' White socks wit' red and pink trim. Also included 1 white, pink, and red elastic belt wit' an inner star charm. 2 clear glitter star hair clips, 2 pink hair bands, 1 "watch" wit' red elastic band and a pink facing. Finally a red pair o' hightops wit' pink laces and a rhinestone stripe on th' sides.
I like th' red and white star design shoes from th' other stores better. It be just bonnyr in my opinion. That be why I give this a B. Because th' design o' th' shoes just isn't as creative.

I am guessing that or a hallmark reseller be yer best bets for finding them. I actually walked away from buying a Bear-Bait Kirstie bookend before Christmas and have been kicking myself since. Unlike th' statues, I really like th' carving and paint jobs on th' bookends.

i just got jess today and I have a wierd problem... be it normal for her hair to be longer in th' front than in th' back? it's not too short in th' back but it be a noticeable difference.
besides that she be lovely and I am a very big jess fan!!
OK so I am looking for a better description o' yer problem wit' her hair. Could ye take a picture maybe and then we can see what ye mean? I think our lusty plastic lasss hair be a little longer in th' front but it isn't really noticeable.
