The doll is beautiful and well-made in most every way
on May 28, 2015
I'm beginning to suspect that I received a defective doll. I bought it for my 2 year old. The doll is beautiful and well-made in most every way. The plastic looks like soft skin and her little face is very sweet. The clothes are well made. We really love her... EXCEPT... the hair. I've read other reviews that mention is hair is nice and not tangly. I must have received a different doll. Within two days of gentle use, the hair on this doll was a matted rats nest. And it is made of something not hair-like at all. It's almost as if the ends are barbed. It frizzes, knots and mats in a way which is impossible to get a comb through. We have lots of dolls and I've never seen anything like it. I tried to keep the hair in a braid just to preserve it. But, after a month, I had no choice but to cut much of it off. Either that or have a doll with matted dreadlocks. Eventually, she's going to have a matted afro. It's really a pity because the doll is so nice in every other way. I do wonder if mine is defective because I can't imagine a company making a doll and using that material for hair.
