PATTERN RATING:Star Rating. Patterns are full-sized, have seam allowances marked, as well as having notches and dots to help guide the seamstress. They are on separate pullout sheets as well so you don't have to destroy the booklet getting the patterns. Mr. Roberts gives a nice array of patterns for cowpoke play, along with the steeds to go with them! The Unicorn was a plus I wouldn't have expected. The equines don't have the details I like(hooves!), but these toys are designed for very young children, and in Cabbage Patch land, I think not having hooves may be nitpicking.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Instructions are broken down into steps and heavily illustrated. He gives cutout guides as well - something that is often lacking in instructions. I don't see how you can get better than that!

SUMMARY- I think you get your money's worth here. Clearly other people think so too, since my copy is from a second printing!
