I must admit that I have always liked the old glass-eyed minis much better than the current ones. The painted eyes and rooted hair always scared me. Like you don't want these Lilliputians sharing your bedroom with you at night! I bought Nellie, Kit, Sam and two Kayas -- kept their books for Gina's library and gave away the dolls. I originally bought Julie to steal her book but she is kinder and less freaky looking than the other minis. I planned to make her over into Ivy (Antina's has mini wigs that would be perfect) but I may have to get another one to customize. I think I like her! Astounding! B+ because she's too tall.
