I didn't see a review thread for this, so I figured it was time to make one...
Sock Monkey - A
My sister hates sock monkeys, so I had to get this for that reason alone. Joking aside, it’s a cute, fairly standard toy. I could do without the HUGE tag. It's appropriately sized to Kit.
Stocking – A- I honestly don’t care for the kind of cheap-feeling felt material. The embroidered design is nice and I like that Kit’s name looks hand-written. Again, it has a big, stupid tag. It’s fine, but not incredible. The sock monkey fits inside nicely and looks pretty cute.
Good Value? Honestly? I’m not sure it’s worth the $20 I paid. The sock monkey is nice, but the stocking feels a bit cheap. I only jumped on it because the BeForever line was being phased out and I didn’t want to miss it, otherwise I might have waited for a sale or coupon.
Overall - A- Since I don’t have Kit’s Amelia Earhart doll, I like this set as a Christmas gift for her. The sock monkey is very cute and is sized to be a satisfying gift for Kit. The stocking leaves something to be desired – I wish it was just a bit thicker and made out of a nicer, maybe less-stiff material. Maybe it’s period authentic? I don’t know. Kit looks happy, at any rate, and I’m pleased to have a gift for her.

Is this kinda pricy for what it is? Likely. But eh, it's worth it. It's a stand alone accessory. And holiday one at that. I'm always happy when the historicals get something that's not a huge set. It's cute and well made. Decent size. Would buy again. It's just pretty cute.
