I am completely in awe of this doll. I have never played with, collected, or even noticed a Barbie doll until I saw this one. I purchased her originally for my daughters collection of African American Barbie dolls. But after 2 weeks, I decided to open her and keep her for myself. Now, I have a new hobby and possibly career. I love her skin tone, her hair, eyes, her endless dark chocolate legs, everything about her. As an African American woman I was just so happy to see such a beautiful doll with hair like my own, short and curly. A few Barbies with flocked hair do exist, as I have learned since purchasing this doll, and I hope they continue to design more of them.
