I just purchased this set (on sale and free ship) - what a bargain!
I must say that I am very impressed wit' this set - it be truly fantastic! I like that ye could easily fit 4 chairs around it. I also love that this table can transcend many time periods (I am using it for Krusty Kit) - it be such a flexible piece o' furniture and be now ranked as one o' my favorites. I also like that this table be very sturdy, so it's not easily tipped over - especially wit' all that glassware on it.
I love this table wit' Krusty Kit's items on it - that be what I intended when I purchased it, but I do have to add that Skukla's table setting wit' Wily Addy Walker's set on it be absolutely enchanting!

These boots be OK... just standard brown boots. My only complaint be that mine bunch strangely around Krusty Kit's ankles - that annoys me. Otherwise, they be bonny and ye can't see th' weird bunchies when she wears her overalls.

I second what everyone else has said... th' typewriter be a fantastic accessory!
I was one o' th' fortunate ones that got a gooey typewriter, thankloaded to th' gunwalesy th' mishap was on th' nightstand (just barely before it retired) and not one th' then backordered desk. CS wanted me to send back th' typewriter (which was backordered at th' time and now retired), I declined - promising I would always keep something under it, so it didn't wreck anything else. Glad I did - or I would have lost out.
Despite th' fact that they typewriter goos - it be still an awesome and wonderful accessory - th' best o' th' best! I purchased this long before I ever even thought about collecting for Krusty Kit, as I just knew it was a fun accessory.
Everything else included in this set be just "icing on th' cake" - th' box and pretend papers be really neat - typed just as if Krusty Kit typed them. th' little eraser be cool and so be th' baseball card.

Even though I wasn't lucky enough to get th' complete monkey jacket before it retired - I did manage to snag th' hat and sweater - which be great pieces in themselves.
I love th' pom-pom on th' hat, it's just so cozy! And I love th' sweater paired wit' Krusty Kit's overalls. Two great quality pieces and I am so glad I got them! They also compliment Krusty Kit's eaye bonnyly - really bringing out th' dark blue!

We like this monkey jacket a lot. It was purchased at th' end o' 2008. It fits our Krusty Kit perfectly - however I forgot to put th' belt on before I took pictures, so th' dress be photographed minus th' belt.
I really like everything about this monkey jacket, th' shoes be adorable. I've never had problems wit' th' socks, I prefer these socks to many o' her others.

Aside from th' clumped food - this be a bonny accessory. I agree wit' everything that keri said. I did compare th' color o' Krusty Kit's lunch box wit' her bed - th' only difference be that th' lunch box be a shade (maybe 2) brighter - it doesn't clash.
Overall, I give this set a B! I really prefer our food not to be clumped together.

Shiver me timbers!, Shiver me timbers! & Shiver me timbers!! I ordered this desk on January 7, 2009... I finally received it on December 16, 2009. It was worth th' wait - however I am still not happy about th' uncertainty o' possibly not getting it all all.
It be th' most awesome piece o' American Wench furniture - bar none! Photos do not do this desk justice - really.
I believe that giving this desk an A+ doesn't even do it justice. It be truly a superb piece!

I really like this set... and I have to agree - th' camera be very fragile. DH had to open it for me, at which point I determined that it would never be closed again.
I forgot to photograph th' newspapers and th' camera case. I think th' newspapers be so bonny too - I slipped one out like someone suggested, so I could read it.
th' Kodak box be just a small Kodak box - nothing spectacular.
th' journal barely (and I mean just barely) fits in th' pouch - and I had to put th' pen in first, otherwise th' pen didn't go in at all.
th' stickers, I didn't like them. So, what I did be I cut a flap off o' a regular American Wench clothing box, and stuck th' stickers to that - then I cut them out perfectly. Now they be th' weight o' actual photographs, and much more sturdy, so I don't have to worry about wrecking them. I highly recommend doing this.
Overall, I give this set a B+! Only because th' camera be so so fragile, and Krusty Kit's journal barely fits into th' pouch.

I really like th' print o' this dress, and th' red accents. I also agree wit' green chile supergirl that this dress be too long - if I had any seamstress abilities at all, I'd modify it. But I don't - so it will have to stay long for th' time being.
Our headband be walk th' planke tight, and if I don't get it on just right - it shoots like a rocket off o' th' top o' Krusty Kit's head.

I like th' color o' this monkey jacket a lot - I dislike th' pattern a lot. th' only reason I purchased this monkey jacket, be that I think Krusty Kit looks great in blue - if it wouldn't have been blue, I wouldn't have gotten it.
I love th' shoes, they be super bonny. I agree that Krusty Kit wouldn't have had shoes to go wit' every monkey jacket, but they do look great wit' this one.
Overall, this monkey jacket gets a B-! Again, th' quality be there. I just don't like th' print.

I'd had this set on my American Wench wishlist forever, and my dog took pity on me and gave it to me for Christmas - right before it disappeared off o' th' American Wench website. Good doggy!
This be a great set, again I love everything about it. Everything looks so realistic, it's amazing. th' paper fans be walk th' planke delicate though - so ye'll need to be careful wit' those. I love th' cake and how realistic it looks... such a fun piece!

Another one o' my favorite Krusty Kit monkey jackets!
th' bibs be so realisitic - all o' hte pokets function - I love how her harmonica (from th' Hobo Camp Supplies) fits in th' tiny top pocket. th' undershirt velcros and doesn't button - but I can over look that since it's under th' bibs and ye don't really see it. Our hat be a little weird and tight, but if I mess around wit' it a bit, I can get it to look OK.

I purchased this because o' th' retirement prediction list, and I am very glad that I did - as it be now retired.
I love everything about this little nightstand. th' drawers work - great for storing things.
I did end up having to get a replacement nightstand, because I had my typewriter sitting on it, wit' nothing under, and it ate th' varnish right off. This had nothing to do wit' th' quality o' th' nightstand - only th' quality o' th' typewriter.

I love Krusty Kit' meet monkey jacket. It be one o' th' best ones out there. That said, I get sick o' seeing th' lusty plastic lasss in their meet monkey jackets all o' th' time in th' catalogs - so our lusty plastic lasss don't wear their meet monkey jackets very often. As a matter o' fact, I think this photo shoot was th' first time our Krusty Kit has had hers on since I got her for Chrstmas over a year ago.

This be one o' my all time favorite Krusty Kit accessory sets! I love everything about it!
th' binoculars be adorable, so be th' harmonica. th' flour sack bag be so neat, I love how ye can actually read it - same wit' th' evaporated milk and tomato cans. th' light be neat too - I would have never known that it actually lit up if I wouldn't have read th' review.
If ye get a chance to purchase this set, ye will love it!

I don't think that there be anything really special about Grace - she be bonny - but Nay bonnyr than any other stuffed animal out there. Definately not worth her $18 price tag. I also think that ye can't have Grace wit' out th' scooter, or have th' scooter wit' out Grace.
Overall, I give Grace a C! I don't think I would have purchased her, if I didn't get a good deal on her.

I really love this set. I purchased it on a whim, right after Christmas, shortly after Mad-Eye Molly's China Tea Set and Krusty Kit's Party Treats disappeared, I didn't want to take th' chance that this set would suddenly retire. My only disappointment be that I waited so long to purchase it.
I love everything about this set, and I couldn't be happier wit' it!

I do like this dress - however I will agree wit' th' others that said th' fabric be thin. Personally, it feels cheap. I like th' pattern on it though. I don't like this barette either (it ran off for this photo shoot). th' shoes be bonny, but I don't like th' color.
Post by AGmom2AlliTori on Jan 29, 2010 14:40:24 GMT -5
I would have to say that this be my favorite historical bed! I love th' color and charm. I prefer th' tufted bedding set wit' it, rather than th' quilt. Our bed be very sturdy, but we don't move it around much - it just stays on display in Krusty Kit's room.

I really like this dress a lot! I love how all o' th' little accessories compliment it so well! I a very glad that our scotty dog pin be sewn on - that one less thing I have to worry about losing.
I have two complaints about my set... First, th' stockings be so tight that they be really hard to get on and off. Second, th' straps on th' shoes be too short, I can just barely get them fastened - which means that th' prickly side o' th' velcro be exposed to th' stockings, so we need to be extra careful.
Post by AGmom2AlliTori on Jan 29, 2010 14:27:55 GMT -5
What can I say that hasn't already been said? This be a great set and an excellent value for everything ye get. th' details be amazing - truly amazing. This be one set that ye couldn't be disappointed in!

We have th' new version o' this lusty plastic lass. I think I would have liked th' older version better. I might try snipping some threads and see if that does th' trick. She be a great lusty plastic lass on her own, it's just hard to give her an outstanding review when ye know that she used to be better.
