I got my Mini Samantha today as a present for Elise.
I did not see it coming that the doll would have a soft cloth body like the 18 inch AG dolls. This is a very nice plus.
The hair is beautiful. Very soft and easy to style. The bangs were poofy originally- BUT they were also easier to sweep to the side than on the original Samantha doll.
The outfit has the same problems as the Meet Samantha outfit. Plus the tights are so bulky that they make Mini Samantha look like she has a thicker waist than what she does. So I just did the same thing I did with the 18 inch doll's tights- snipped them to make stockings. This makes Mini Sam's dress fit better over her bloomers and stockings.
I really like the doll's poseability.
The mini Meet Samantha book is cute and high quality. The print is very small- but I can still read it with my glasses (I'm farsighted, so this may not be an issue for you).
Overall an A. Would be an A+ if the tights were not so bulky or if she had stockings instead of tights. This is a similar issue with the 18 inch Samantha Parkington doll.
I feel as giddy as when I got Samantha 11 years ago. In my stories, Elise gets a Samantha doll as a present for being a junior bridesmaid at her friend Anjelika's wedding.
