At the time of this "review" (Jan 2010) Kirsten Mini Doll is still available directly from American Girl for $22 plus shipping. (No affiliation, just a penny-pinching AG mini doll collector!)

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!

I did not buy my mini kirsten here. I bought mine at an american girl doll store in Kansas city on vacation. I was so excited because I loved kirsten since i was little and she was the first AG doll book series introduced to me when I migrated to the states when I was 8 from Germany. I Did book reports on her books etc. So therefore I felt I've had alot in common with Kirsten. Since Kirsten in "Meet Kirsten" migrates from Sweden to America. So at 27 now I was super excited to get her. Yet very sad to hear they retired her in the 18' version. She is still in 6' very beautiful and adorable and its a must get!. So if this is your favorite AG historical figure doll or whichever it may be even if they're retired buy the 6' mini version. It's better than having nothing of the dolls that remind us of when we were little. Felicity and Samantha are also retired in the 18'. However its cheaper on here. At the AG store I paid 24$ for her, but still worth it at the time because I had to have here right then and there. However Buy the actual book series. Her little book is not her entire book and you can barely read it. Its cute for display. I plan on collecting all the other little dolls and books and if I have a daughter someday use the dolls and books to teach her American History.

Kirsten is a well made little doll of wonderful quality made with the same attention to detail in her clothing as the larger American Girl dolls - we love her! Her little book is tiny and does not contain the full story of Kirsten but is a fun, tiny read none the less.

My niece just started reading the American girls series and fell in love with kirsten. Since she is retired the 18 inch doll was well out of my price range for her birthday, but this worked perfectly. She jumped out of her chair when she saw it!!

My daughter really likes this doll. I like the small AG dolls because they are affordable, so you can by many of them to play together with. I wish she had come with her whole outfit, including her bonnet. Also, I wish AG would make outfits and accessories that you could buy to go with the small dolls. It would make them more fun.

Mini Kirsten is adorable! She looks just like 18-inch Kirsten, though as I write this review, the 18-inch Kirsten doll is still retired. She's been retired for almost 3 years. For those who never got to get Kirsten like myself, the mini is a perfect alternative.

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.
