Santa brought my three yr old this doll and King Dominick for Christmas, and boy was my daughter thrilled! The batteries are going to wear out quickly! The doll is very nicely made, her gown is lovely, and the signing clips are just the right volume, not too loud, and the sound quality is good. I thought the music would be annoying after awhile, but it's not loud or distorted, so maybe it won't get tedious. The olny issue I've noticed is that Erika's hair was matted when she was opened, and I don't know that most little girls would be careful enough with a brush to take care of it. (Barbies with curly hair all have the tendency to matt up, and it's a headache to brush.)
But, the doll's beautiful, and because my six yr old got Anneliese from Santa too, my gilrs are going to enjoy acting out the movie.
