I was soo happy with this doll. To accompany the new digital design of the character barbie in the webasodes "Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse"; mattel wowed us all by creating a brand new line of face molds that resembles the characters from the show. This idea is genius and I was so excited for them to come out, considering these could be very rare and high in value years later.
Cons: articulation still needs work on the feet & body!
I have seen this doll in the "Barbie Collector" mag. & at my local Walmart & WILL be getting one SOON! I like what I see & I base my review on that & experience in repairing & modifying toys for over 48 years! All in all, I can see that this doll is well made & should be excellent for any little girl to use to play along with the "webasodes" of "Life in the Dream House!" The ONLY problem I can see is STILL in the articulation department. The head, arms & part of the legs are very good but the feet are still stiff & so is the waist. COME ON MATTEL! At one time, her waist was articulated & some of the dolls had articulated ankles as well as the rest of the body! At one time, you ALMOST had Barbie on par with other FULLY articulated 1/6 figures! COME ON MATTEL! GET WITH THE PROGRAM PEOPLE! YOU ARE ABLE TO DO SO MUCH BETTER BY BARBIE THEN THIS!
