I was in American Girl NY, and loved all the Lanie displays. The doll was nice but didn't feel compelled to get her. She looked like my niece so my sister got her fro her daughter (my daughter ended up getting Ivy- she only has Julie & Samantha.)
Two comments to add besides all the great reviews she's already gotten... 1. After the store had only been open about an hour, we saw a girl (maybe 8 or 9) carrying around a Lanie that looked worn out already! This doll appears to be high maintenance and may not be your first choice if your daughter is tough on her dolls.
2. Her eyes aren't as green as they appear in the pictures where the flash is used or in the AG pictures. I think because the light has to be hitting them directly and brightly for them to truly shine.
