Dont believe the negative reviews
Date:April 2, 2013
Pros: well designed outfit and doll, beautiful hair extensions with lovely curls, posable legs
Cons: you must put hair extns' with a certain method, skirt reveals the dolls vulval area some angles
My only flaw Is that you have to push AND twist the extensions into the head- which is not clearly stated in the instructions given.
The other issue I had is the age range, It should not be for a BOY or GIRL below 5, it is a complex doll with delicate hair pieces that could easily be ruined by an impatient kid that has no idea how to operate the well designed doll.
Do you honestly think Mattel would make and sell thousands of these dolls if they did not work at all? Please.

Good Purchase
Date:January 13, 2013
Pros: High quality
Cons: extension plug is hard to insert
Overall I loved the concept!! My niece loved it!!! The only inconvenience in my point of view was that I found the extensions of hair a bit hard to insert, specially for a little girl, I sort of had to squeeze the dolls head in order to be able to insert the plug!!!! But the whole idea in general, LOVED IT!!!

so so

It is very difficult to push the long hair pieces into the dolls head. The knobs on the long hair are very small, you have to use a lot of force and it hurts your fingers. My girls are 9 and 12 and can't always get them in. It is difficult even for an adult.

doll
Date:April 15, 2012
Cons: Low quality, Not durable
I bought this doll for my 8year old granddaughter. She couldn't get the hair to stay in. I had to put the extensions in. It was very hard for me to get them to stay in. The holes are not big enough for the knobs at the end of the extensions
She was very disappointed and hasn't played with the doll since Easter.

Major design flaw
Date:March 1, 2012
Pros: cute
Cons: Low quality, design flaw
My five year old wanted this doll for her birthday. Grandma shipped it to her and she was thrilled to open it. However, the 'hair plugs' don't fit into the holes on the dolls head. The holes are too small. Even the adults can't get them in. I checked a few other sites and this seems to be a on going problem. My daughter went to bed crying and frustrated. I fixed the problem by pulling out a Phillips screwdriver and 'making' the holes bigger. All is well this morning.
Matel--PLEASE fix the problem!
