I've been wanting Kanani on and off for the past year; I almost bought her in-store last December when she was sold out online, and finally got off the fence and decided I had to have her. I received her catalog in the mail in Jan 2011 after no AG exposure for 15+ years so I give her credit for reintroducing me to AG as an adult.
She was purchased NIB at a crazy secondhand market price (well at least for me; up to this point all my dolls have been $75 and under). I don't typically use superlatives but this doll is stunning. Unfortunately, it took a bit of work to make her look in tip-top shape as her hair was a complete tangled wreck after removing the wig cap. I am intimidated by the length of her hair (one of the reasons why I didn't get her last year) and she will definitely be a display doll in the household. Her skin tone coloring is perfect and her hazel eyes are bright enough to prevent that beady-look I dislike in Jess. She looks fantastic in her meet dress even though it is very simple and of thin material.
At this point I have to give her an A-. She is beautiful yet her hair IS a bit crazy to deal with.
Update 12/19: Her hair is not as daunting as it seems. I style it regularly with little or no hassle. I'm going to upgrade her to an A!
