for her birthday. It was exactly like the one her teacher loaned her
over Spring Break!!! She was absolutely enthralled!!! I have never
heard her so excited over a gift! Plus the sender was able to send it
quickly so it arrived in Hawaii on time!!! I couldn't be happier!!!
Another reviewer mentioned there being a first and second generation of the original Kirsten dolls. Assuming that's true, we have both. And, both look identical to each other and not like the doll in the photo. I'm wondering if the seller bought a Girl of Today (the one where you choose the color of eyes, hair and skin) and simply tried putting in braids in order to up the price.
We have one from the very first year they came out (I bought it while pregnant with my now 23 year old. What can I say? We're Scandinavians from Minnesota, and her name is Kirstin.) And, I bought a second one when they announced the retirement of Kirsten. They look the same and not quite like the one pictured.
When the hair is taken out of the braids, it gets a very nice wavy, soft straw-like texture very quickly.It does not stay smooth. You can spray it with a water bottle for easy styling. There is a lovely amount of thick hair on this doll, perhaps going to her waist or more. You can truly do anything you want with the hair. I spent hours making elaborate hairstyles as a child with it :) But be warned, its pretty hard to get it back to the original hairstyle.
The dress is not as plain looking as in the photograph. The blue is more vibrant, but subdued at the same time. The patterns on the dress really jump out at you nicely. The apron is made out of a nice material, feeling like a real apron. The boots are faux leather and stand up to years of playing with.
The first generation doll, at least, is real quality. I had the doll since I was maybe 5 until I stopped playing with her as a teen. She still looked great, her clothes still looked brand new despite. Her eyes never scratched, the paint never did either. She never lost her huggablity, her soft body staying intact.
She is definitely worth the $350+ price based on only her playable worth. To look at on top of, she is worth even more. Then you take in her educational value potential, and she is worth yet more. Especially for a child. You will save all the money you spend on her by not buying Barbies upon breakable Barbies and such, plus she may get your child interested in history! And you can read her books with your child, too!
Over all, a great doll (and book series!). Other super quality dolls with first generations in the American Girl line include Samantha, Molly, Felicity, Addy, and Josephina. The first generations are no longer available through the American Girl website, though.
