I just got a used one from EBay too. My daughter liked this one so much we are getting another for her. I'll add to my comments after the second one arrives.
Meanwhile the first was perfect in every way, just a wee bit dirty on the legs. I had read enough reviews here that I opted not to look at new in box dolls with hair nets and very basic photos, and instead looked at used dolls that were photographed in detail from every angle. I could then see which dolls appeared to have thick wigs and which didn't. My experience of getting several dolls from eBay has taught me NIB is nice but not necessary if you work with a really good seller who takes great pains to accurately represent the product.
My Chrissa arrived with no wear marks and a thick beautiful wig. It is much better than the new Emily doll's wig I had that had almost put me off short straight wigs forever. Chrissa can endure a busy day without flyaways. I can just smooth her hair down with my hand.
Dark hair and blue eyes is a stunning combination. The meet dress is dull on Chrissa but took on new life on Marisol especially when paired with light purple leggings from the current Striped School Dress and Charm set. Chrissa looked better with the bold dark colors of the striped school dress itself.
