I was looking for an alternative to Barbie and all those adult looking dolls for my daughter. It was very hard to find one, but this fits the bill! It's expensive, but looks more like a little girl. The hair is fab - it's been washed and styled a few times already and stood up to everything! The clothes seem well made and are easy enough for little hands to take on and off. The eyelids open and close too, which fascinates my daughter. She loves tucking the doll up in bed and seeing its eyes close. Overall the doll is well made and I think my daughter will play with her for a long time.
