I have had my Molly since 1995 adn she is my favorite. I fell in love with her a few years beofre that but I knew Mom couldn't afford her, so I waited and read her books. What really drew me to her was the glasses, the dancing, the parent in the military, and the fact that she was a little bit of a tomboy. She is now my main model for showing off my sewing creations. I highly reccomend her, she is just so precious.
