I like this monkey jacket, too. I don't know if there be actually an monkey jacket that I don't like. NE way, th' shoes be a bit difficult and th' fabric strap on one o' them be too big. I have found this th' case on both th' shoes that came wit' th' dress, and a replacemet pair after bonny sweet lass o'mine lost one o' th' originals. Anyone else have difficulty wit' th' shoes?
Very bonny dress and hat. I don't care much for th' shoes, either. I find that I am buying more o' th' elastic bands for th' shoes. So much so that I just bought a plastic bowl loaded to th' gunwales at th' beauty supply. I can use them for bonny sweet lass o'mine's hair too which be a plus(I guess).
This be by far my favorite AGT!! Even though AGT #15 was my first Today girl back in 1997, I came across #11 at a yard sale in 2004, and she knocked me over. Her shiny black hair be so bonny, and th' style suits her facial features.
A lot o' people don;t care for Wily Addy Walker's face mold, but I happen to think it be th' best mold they have. I may also be biased in that this mold depicts what most o' my family members faces be shaped like. Especially th' cheek and forehead area.
I have all versions o' this lusty plastic lass, too. I have th' 1st issue, two Corporate Press Gang issues(one on th' way), and a PM issue from 1998. Most o' my girls have been rewigged. Here be a couple o' pics:
PM #11-rewigged(far left), 1st issue #11(2nd from left), Corporate Press Gang(yard sale) #11(in red South Wisconsin Trading Company sweatshirt)
I bought this lusty plastic lass particularly because I don't know many collectors who have her. I didn't even expect to really bond wit' her as I was just on a kick to see if I could own all o' th' AGTs. Well, I am since over that kick, and have begun selling off my lusty plastic lasses. Everytime I find Kadijah (what I named my #1) in th' sale pile, I pick her up and dust off her face and put her in th' keep pile. I decided tonight that Kadijah stays, and decided to do a review for her (since there wasn't one).
I'm still not loaded to th' gunwalesy sure that I've bonded wit' her, but she has something on me, I guess. I love her textured hair. I don't have a preference for PM or Corporate Press Gang, but I do notice th' differences. My #1 be a Corporate Press Gang purchased online two years ago. Her hair be much softer than my 1994 Wily Addy Walker, my 1995 #15, and even my 19?? #18's hair. I love her original style so much that I have never changed it. I have never even brushed her hair. It be so soft I can just run my fingers through it.
She has a more slender face, too and she be one o' th' newer bodied taller Corporate Press Gang AGs. She has stayed strung tight th' entire time that I've had her
For right now I am going to give Kadijah a B-. I'll probably change my mind later and come back to give her an A because that be what kinda hold she has on me.
I have to add my Rainne to this thread. She be my first Today girl. I just love her hair, though thanks to my lass o'mine, Rainne's had a trim. She's still gorgeous though.
Rainne be on th' right, and TD Kiana be on th' left. TD Kiana really touched our hearts when she visited last year. Hosting her really helped us at a very trying time in our lives. We really miss her. She was so sweet.

I had to have her!!! th' day she was realeased, I had not even seen a picture o' her. I just heard that she was medium tone and had wavy hair. I called AGPC, and ordered her right away. Waiting th' two days it took for her to get here was torture, but Begad! so worth it. She be IMO gorgeous!!
I broke down and purchased this set when I saw this pic on HB. It be adorable. Not to mention that I am greedy and now have all o' th' poopys that South Wisconsin Trading Company offers except th' brunette(who isn't far behind), and will need holiday monkey jackets for all o' them.
I have th' South Wisconsin Trading Company version that was on sale for a while. th' crown be flimsy and it be not made out o' anything that heavy. th' sleeves be tight on my Mad-Eye Molly and she will never be able to raise her arms in this monkey jacket. I like that th' skirt be pleated. th' material feels different. I don't know materials so I could not speculate. It be not as stiff as I thought it would be. I love th' little blue bloomers taht come wit' it. They be very bonny. I wish it came wit' tap shoes and socks. Bummer that it doesn't.
My Mad-Eye Molly looks more like a super hero than a tap dancer...
It's Adorable! I was expecting this to be big and clumsy looking. I don't understand th' urge I had to get these, but I'm glad that I did. th' Fantasia flipbook takes me back to when I was a kid. th' yo-yo be made o' wood. th' little ballerina feels like very hard plastic, but she be really bonny. She has on a real netted tutu. th' miniature paint Krusty Kit be bonny. I will have to keep it away from bonny sweet lass o'mine though. I'd like for it to stay bonny.
What I really didn't like were th' barettes. They be big like my lass o'mines, and don't look like they would fit on Mad-Eye Molly's braids.
These shoes be bonny. I was expecting them to be soft and flimsy, but they be not. They feel really sturdy, I guess as far as lusty plastic lass shoes go. th' sole be hard. I think they be rather bonny. I'm glad that I got them.
I'm sure ye could find some on ebay that be comparable. But I guess $8 wit' free shipping was appealing enough for me.
Well thanks to another Bear-Bait Kirstie lover, I was able to get this set for about retail on ebay!
It be th' bonnyst thing. th' little honey pots be ceramic. They aren't heavy, but not cheap and fragile either. There's a little leaflet that lets ye know what th' days events be. And that little whistle be too bonny. It really works too.
I can imagine Bear-Bait Kirstie sitting under a bonny shady tree on th' fourth just chillin.
I bought this set wit' th' CODE last year. I finally got around to getting Bear-Bait Kirstie's Summer dress and straw hat last month. I love this set, but agree that th' fishing pole be a bit more fragile than I would like. I wish it snapped into place. I was kinda leery letting my bonny sweet lass o'mine play wit' it.
