I've wanted Nellie since she came out a few years ago, but wasn't actively collecting AG at the time, and passed her up.
With my recent AG collecting revival, I was disappointed to find that she had been retired around 6-8 months ago. Through Ebay hunting however, I managed to find a very gently used doll for a good price, and Nellie finally joined the doll family as my third doll.
I thought the pictures I'd always seen of Nellie were always darling, but she's even more adorable in real life.
Her hair has a nice volume to it, and it an easy to take care of length, not to mention it's a nice colour. Her face detail is beautiful, and her eyes are a very pleasant dark blue.
I like her 'meet' outfit for the most part, except I feel that the colour looks too washed out, and needs to be more blue - a periwinkle colour would have been nice. I'm not too keen on her shoes, but eh, that's the least of my complaints. Her tights are really easily snagged on the velcro of her dress, which is a little annoying, but I don't think much can be done about that.
I really like her accessories. They all seem to be high quality, especially the hat and purse.
Overall, I give Nellie an A+!
