PATTERN RATING: Star Rating. Patterns are full-size and on a separate sheet from the booklet. They have dot markings and seam allowances on the pattern pieces. The animals are gussetted, but despite this, have very little detail to recommend them. They rely on their quilting fabric print to give them charm. There are also a boy and girl doll with painted faces and club hands.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Instructions are broken down into steps, and each step has a photograph accompanying it. I don't think you can ask anyone for more than that.

SUMMARY- You can tell from the shape of the animals exactly what they are - and I've got soft toy books that I can't say that about. Despite that, the lack of small details like faces, hooves, paws, etc. really detracts from the toys for me.
