PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Some of the pattern pieces have to be resized, but are gridded to help the crafter. They are well marked with notches and seam guides, though are missing grainline(very common). There is a nice variety of fairy tale and story characters, but I wouldn't have known who some of them were if I weren't told(like Cinderella).

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are broken down by body part, and there is some illustration to help the crafter.

SUMMARY- I love the idea of this toy. I can imagine them giving endless hours of play to active imaginations.
