When I first saw the long haired BTs in person, I didn't care for them. First impressions, however, can be wrong. This little girl is adorable. DD and I love her. DD is thrilled to be able to brush her hair and while the wig is a bit on the thinner side for a collector, it is ideal for a young child just learning to care for a doll with hair. I know some people feel the hair is a bit too long for a toddler, but for a little girl the length is great. DD brushes her hair (and brushes and brushes) and is enjoying the styling options. Personally, I prefer her with her hair down or in braids, but DD likes the ponytails.
I do think the BB legs are a little silly on a doll that goes to preschool (and as she has school clothes, I assume she goes to preschool). I'd like to see AG pay for a straighter leg mold but that's a small point. I love that she has the same body as BB as that greatly expands the wardrobe options.
Personally, I don't care for the meet outfit. The ruffles on the denim jumper are a bit much for me. I prefer the cleaner line and more classic look of the BB 2-in-1 Travel jumper.
As a collector, I'd like to see the wig a bit fuller and I'd like to see the leg mold changed to better reflect the updated age of the revised BTs-- aside from those points the doll is great. I give her a B+

Here's a picture of her with her hair down (in the BB Let it Snow PJs):

And just 'cause I think she's extra cute in it, here's DD's Maggie in her sleep hat:
