I bought this for my 3 year old niece who is learning ballet. I think the doll is great, as are the booklet and CD, and she does too. She loves doing 'good toes' 'naughty toes' on it. However I was a bit disappointed that it came in just a plain white box - I'm not one for excess packaging, but on opening the wrapping paper it was a bit boring just seeing a white box with a doll inside - it did make it look like a random doll you buy from a market stall. Is this why it is half price lol?
