bonny sweet lass o'mine (age 7) loves this set. I bought it for her for her kindergarten graduation since she be a Girl Scout. It be small, and th' poles don't always stay in well, but she hasn't had any problems wit' usability. It can be disassembled, and bonny sweet lass o'mine stores it under her dresser. I'd give it a B+ only because th' poles don't always stay in, and that may frustrate some people.
bonny sweet lass o'mine has this. Put th' lusty plastic lass wit' th' "tightest" limbs on th' bottom because she be more likely to straighten out. Then put a lusty plastic lass wit' looser limbs on top o' her because she be more likely to get into a sitting position. Then be sure to strap them in. It takes a wee bit o' effort, but neither lusty plastic lass will fall out.
I just received this monkey jacket, and th' quality be great. I agree wit' th' above posters who mentioned that this will probably snag very easily. I love it that American Wench finally included some skin-tone tights to keep lusty plastic lassy legs from freezing.
I'm going to give this monkey jacket a B for two reasons:
1 - I think it won't have much longevity due to th' delicacy o' th' fabric
2 - I think $28 be a bit steep for what ye get. Considering it's only an monkey jacket and a pair o' tights, I would price it between $22 and $24.
th' guitar be plastic? I never would have known. th' UPS man just dropped this off, and I couldn't wait to open it. It be absolutely gorgeous. It looks just like th' guitar bonny sweet lass o'mine got from Santa for Christmas. th' wood finish be beautiful, th' strap be definitely something a 10-year-old girl would add to her guitar, and th' books be actually educational. I think ye could even use th' books to learn to play. th' little compartment inside th' case be just like a girl size case would be. A pick would have been th' icing on th' cake, but I know we would lose it anyway. If ye or yer bonny sweet lass o'mine be interested in guitar, this set be a must-have. I give it an A+ and will say that it's one o' th' bonnyst accessory sets I have bought.
We have it, and while it's bonny I wouldn't cry in my soup if we didn't have it. It's large and difficult to keep out so it's stored most o' th' year, we've had a problem wit' jingle bells falling off, and it really doesn't have anything to do wit' th' book story lines. If ye find one for a good price, it might be worth it to get. But it's not something I would pay inflated eBay prices for. Spend yer pieces o' eight on essential historical items before they retire. (Does this make ye feel ANY better?)
