'Deluxe' robe - two different products,
This review is from: Harry PotterTM and Hermione GrangerTM Deluxe Gryffindor Robe - Kids Costume: 5 - 7 Years (Toy)
I bought my daughter's 'deluxe' robe some time ago, and my sister bought her daughter one around the same time, both girls the same age and size but living in different parts of the UK.
Although described the same we ended up with two different products.
Mine is velour - not really my taste, but it's lasted ok and done very good service over the last 2 years, including periods of intense use, three trips to the WB Studios and various birthday parties. The sizing is accurate - as a tall 8 year old and is now definitely ready for the next size up (8-10), but is still happy to wear her robes as 3/4 length!
My sister's is fleece, and really could be used as a dressing gown or cardigan layer outdoors. It looks and feels nice, and honestly given the choice I would have rather had that one. The down side is that is attracts hair and fluff - you can definitely tell they have a white cat!
So in summary, both have been good, but the velour one, to me, felt less worth the money.
And if you decide to buy one, good luck in the product pot luck!!
