The Rebecca Mini Doll is really very cute. I wasn't sure if I liked the Meet Outfit on the 18" doll, but now seeing it in person on the mini, it looks very nice. The main difference is the buttons on the Mini Rebecca's dress are embroidered on. She has a nice full head of hair, which seems silkier, less stiff, and as a result, more in scale to the doll than some of the other minis. Her eyes are not really hazel, but more light brown-hazel is hard to reproduce in a monotone color. Her boots have embroidered buttons, and open in the back with velcro. I noticed on the 18" review that the dress sleeves were tight. On the mini doll, there is no velcro on the sleeves, and the hands come out easily, but it is a bit hard to get the hands back in the sleeve-they get caught between the red and the black velvet part.
The Mini Dolls are a great way to collect the entire historical collection if one doesn't have the space, budget, or simply don't want all the 18" inch dolls. DD and I have also found they make great birthday presents for her friends. We both give the Rebecca Mini Doll an A+.
