Tiny doll was a big disappointment for me, but my child LOVES it. ADORES it.

Updated after a few months:
My child loves this. Took a little bit for him to warm up to it, but this doll is in his #1 favorite toy. My little boy is like Andy from Toy Story - has really amazing and detailed pretend games with his toys. This doll has the best acrobatic ninja skills ever. All of the things I noted as flaws in my original review are what makes it perfect for him. The way the arms and legs attach let him whip the doll around and spin him through the air with ease. The extreme lightness makes him easy to toss high in the air, and no big deal if he goes SPLAT.
My older son is the nurturing type and he plays with his Corolle like a traditional baby doll. But Son 2 is action-oriented, and so while this is not a cuddly doll it turned out to be *perfect*. Very happy in the end!
What a let down! We have a 14 inch Corolle (Suce Pouce), and I thought this would be a smaller version of the same overall Corolle body type. Wrong. This is a sad, scrawny doll with legs that flop from a flimsy bean-bag body. I am shocked at how under-filled this is. The resulting feel is off-putting. My child prefers to cuddle with a hard plastic bath doll to this weird one.
I've added pictures to show how this stacks up against the traditional doll. It seems like there should have been twice as much bean filling and perhaps some leg padding as there is with the arms. The classic doll has legs that are attached in a way to allow various poses, but the tops have some filling, which keeps ot feeling like part of the whole. The bath doll's legs just dangle and show the a hollow dip meant for padding. Very unnatural and unpleasant.
I expected more from Corolle. The light bean filling dries quickly; there is no reason if should not be generously stuffed.
