Of my three offspring, the five year old girl is the toughest to buy for. I have an eleven year old boy, and an eight year old boy, and they're quite easy, because I was once an eight year old and eleven year old boy myself, although not at the same time, and in a way there's a part of me that still is. But I've never been a five year old girl, not even once.

Also, that's a tricky age anyway, because they can't quite articulate precisely what they want; so my remit was
She: "I want a doll, with stripy stockings"
Me: "Like a rag doll?"
She: "And she's got different clothes"
Me: "A fashion doll? Like a barbie?"
Me thinks: (heart sinks. So soon?! No, please don't let her fall for that souless commercial franchise already!)
She: "No."
Me (thinks): (Oh thank god!)
She: "You can cuddle her"
Me: "So a rag doll? You want a rag doll, like Jemima in..."
Me thinks: (oh what's the use; I work with people who can't remember Play School)
Me: "With stripy legs. Yeah, I get it."

But this filled the remit and then some. Much much more charisma than Jemima ever had, very well made, fair trade, and if you get one of the five or six packets of clothes - any one of which provides numerous combinations, you can change her outfit meaning she's a play-with role-play toy as well as a cuddling/companion toy. Recommend buying one of the set of clothes to maximise playability and give her a unique appeal over other soft toys competing for attention.

The manufacturers think she's called Rosanne, but my daughter is insistent her name is Amy. Lol... but that's the only criticism. C'mon guys, get the name right!

I love these dolls. I bought a small 7" one for my neice for her first birthday who goes to bed with her every night. And then for her second birthday wanted to get accessories, but they only do them for the bigger standard dolls. So Rosie was bought (love the hair, reminds me of mine!) along with the clothing set.

It was the perfect present, and she loves her. THe dolls are extremely well made, they are not plastic and horrible, they can stay in bed (or indeed in their own bed - nothing like an amazon box it arrived in for making a bed for them!) as they are soft. They are fabulous and I would highly recommend them as good first dolls for the very young who will keep them and play with them for many many years to come - and possibly even pass onto the next generation (they are that timeless!).

Both my daughters (23m and 2m) adore this doll. Originally bought for my elder daughter, she is now having to share and our baby is absolutely fascinated by it so I am off to buy another!

I far prefer this style of doll to the moulded plastic 'realistic' ones (which, frankly, frighten the life out of me!) and she is certainly very well-made and seems quite durable. She has endured many a trip to the playground and a fair amount of abuse and is no worse for wear because of it.

That she is fair trade is the icing on the cake. Can't really give much of a better review - I am back to buy another after all!

Its a lovely doll, I was really pleased with it when it first arrived and my daughter (20 months) really enjoys playing with it. Within a month however one of its legs had fallen off and we had to sew it back on. The second leg has now fallen off. They are not sewn on very well. With the second leg now reattached i'm hoping it should last. The children do not play roughly with this toy, the legs have fallen off though light wear and tear.

A little smaller than I expected but well made and lovely colours. I'm sure my daughter will love playing with her

Have bought this doll for my niece and daughter and am very pleased with the product. It is beautifully made, brightly coloured and seems very durable. My niece has had the doll for a year and it still looks great. I much prefer rag dolls like these to plastic 'realistic' dolls and I think it will be a treasured toy for many years. Tempted to buy some of the others in the range!

I`m delighted with Rosanne. My granddaughter is not two yet, but carries her around and cuddles her. The clothes come off easily so when the time comes we will be buying more for her more. Lovely also, that the money goes to the right place with fare trade, and great to have a hand made product instead of the gaudy plastic.

I was very pleased with the promptness of delivery and packageing. As an adult I think Rosanne is Fab full of colour and seems quite robust.It was a present for a 13month old her first respoce was to give her a kiss so I think she will be a winner. Also I like to think I'm helping one of my favorite animals the Elephant!

I bought this ragdoll for my niece. It has a lovely face and is very cuddly. My niece is only three months old so this rag doll is great as it doesn't have any small parts that may be dangerous. The clothes can be removed so I know in the future she will have fun dressing and undressing the rag doll.
