I bought my Marisol the summer she came out. I give MY doll a B- because of what she looked like when she came.
When I got her, it was a hot thick summer, I spent most of my time swimming. I got her later one night and when my mom brought her to my dad's, I said, "Where's the shipping box?"
She came in just a doll box. O.o not brown box or peanuts. To this, I was dissappointed. The box was dented on the corners and edge. When I took her out, her head was a wee bit loose and her left eye stuck. O.x Yeah, that's really what a girl my age really wanted to see. I stood her up, but didn't care much, for she was my first and ever american girl doll!
Now the outfit, I love big time. And for that matter, she is the only doll that wears it! lol. The little clip on the purple sweater broke so I just tuck it in. And I lost her hat but Recently AG said there is a replacement one. Her hair was long and gourgeous, but now she needs a head replacement..
I have tighented her hair but due to an accident (or a few actually) The heat ruined her hair cause' I played with her constantly, and her left eye sticks even worse.
But she was well loved and I am happy with her. She was my first ever AG doll and I remember my friend trying to talk me into picking Nellie at first lol.
Overall I rate her an A-. If she didn't come the way she did she would get an A++++++++!!!
