I compared her to American Girl, my generation, and journey girls. She has a beautiful face and I like this her eyes clothes when she lays down. I did not want to spend the money on American Girl as my daughter is 4. I do agree that the haircut will need some trimming. I washed her hair in Dove shampoo and conditioner and possess had no issues with flyaway hair. Her face looks more realistic and lifelike compared to other dolls I compared. I like that her head can move more as being a human head. The knees and elbows do not bend, but I don’t like the look from the articulated knees and elbows on other dolls. I am thinking of getting another one for my daughter, but wish to wait to allow her understand the new one having a pink fluffy jacket and rain boots so my daughter can select. She is more costly than some of the other dolls, but worth the money, and you will almost buy a couple of these for the price of an American girl doll.
With two girls (6 & 8), I knew the 18 inch doll conversation was just a matter of time. I also decided a long time ago that I would never cough up the $100 for any real AG doll, so I studied up on the more affordable alternatives (Adora, Alexander, Journey, Gotz). As Christmas approached, I realized that my older daughter knew the gap and expected a genuine AG doll. I mulled in the decision for quite a while, but finally went correctly. She is very dark-haired with hazel eyes as well as a dusting of freckles across her nose, hence the AG was the one decent match. My younger daughter (dark blond/light brown hair with blue eyes) actually liked the design of the Alexander dolls better, so she chose this “monkey” doll.
