My oldest daughter fell in love with this doll the minute she debuted and begged for her for her birthday. I was pleasantly surprised when she arrived; Charlotte (as she is now named) is even prettier in person. We got the doll with the pierced ears, earring set and the cell phone and accessories. Here is our review - with lots of pictures!
Charlotte's hair is a honey blonde (rather than a light yellow blonde like #27) and her eyes are blue. She has the nice single layer bangs (which I love) and nice full sides; the back is a bit thinner than the sides but it's not really thin and looks very nice left down. With this wig, you can shake the doll with her hair down and when it settles you can't see through it. (Unlike my Jess, who suffers from premature alopecia and can only wear her hair in ponies or braids, poor dear.) My old #25 didn't have hair much thicker than this in back and #32 has the added bonus of the little shorter hairs in back so she can wear her pulled to the side without a problem.
We love the changeable earrings, too. The doll comes with a basic set of silver studs - hearts, round balls and stars (you actually end up with two sets of the stars since the doll comes with those in her ears, too) and three sets of earring jackets you can use to change the look (hoops, heart and stars). We love the hoops with the studs or stars best; I don't think Charlotte will be wearing the other earrings much. (We also got a set of the party earrings, which are much prettier and colourful.)
The hole in the ear is big but it holds the earrings in nicely and makes them easier (and safer, since the ends of the posts are blunt) for kids to get in and out.
I have to say I am in love with the new meet outfit! This outfit is actually something my girls would wear. The capri leggings and ballet flats have great mix and match potential...I'd definitely buy this outfit all on its own.
Here Charlotte is, straight out of the box,
I'd give this doll an A overall. There really isn't anything about her I would change and my daughter is madly in love with her...what more can you ask for?
