When ordering any mini doll, remember that they are more of a collector's item, not really a "toy." I'm an adult, & I'm "collecting" them for display. Yes the mini dolls' hair is delicate, & would be almost impossible to fix back if it comes undone..... shoes are tiny, clothing details are tiny.... that's what makes them so cute!! :-) If you want a play-doll for your daughter, then order the $95 18" doll.... or buy an off-brand 18" doll & buy or make the clothes separately. The mini dolls aren't made to stand up to hours of play.
If you're ordering this doll because you want to read the book, buy the real book instead. The mini books are abridged, and the text is TINY..... that's what makes them so cute!!! :-) My daughter & I have the Meet Samantha books - my book is the mini abridged version, & hers is the "real" story. Mine is about 2 chapters' worth of the big book - just enough to give you a taste of the whole story.
Again, I'm collecting the dolls for display. I love miniature things, and I love the historical aspect of the American Girl series but can't shell out $950 (plus tax/shipping!) to buy all the 18" dolls.... these mini dolls are a perfect fit for me!
Her clothes are fully removable, but I don't see why you would remove them, as American Girl doesn't make any extra clothes for the minis. Due to how tiny her laces are, I imagine her shoes would be difficult to retie if they came untied. Due to her extremely scaled-down details, I would recommend leaving her hair braided. Imagine trying to rebraid it with normal-sized adult human hands. Overall, the minis are more for display than for play, in contrast to their 18-inch counterparts. In spite of how it looks, her hair is actually held together not by the blue ribbons, but by clear rubber bands under the ribbons. Another thing to keep in mind is that the minis' hair is rooted, whereas the full-size dolls' hair is glued-on wigs. Therefore, don't expect the same hair quality from the minis that you would expect from their 18-inch counterparts. As their eyes are painted-on and not glass, they therefore stay open. They do not close. Though it may not hurt to mention that the minis' eyes used to be glass. When the minis were first released in 1995, their eyes were fixed glass. This changed in the early 2000's, when Mattel took over. Check Ebay if you're interested in the glass-eye minis.
Her book that comes with her is as tiny as her, and is abridged. Meaning, it's incomplete. I don't have the book nearby to look at, but based off of memory, either it has the beginning and end, and the middle is skipped, or it only has the first 3 chapters. The text is also tiny; so tiny that you almost need a microscope.Read more ›
