I absolutely ADORE this doll! She was the second doll that I got (after Kit) and I received her April 2005. After a few years, I lost interest in my dolls, and they were packed away in a box (I will admit, they weren't well taken care of...it makes me shudder to think about). After being in the box for a few years and going through many moves, my #13 Dakota was still in great shape! Her hair was very messy so I straightened it, and now it looks perfect! Her hair doesn't frizz at all in my experience, and the bangs stayed great as well.
The only problem I've had with her is that she has sort of a "lazy eye" in that her right eye tends to shift a bit to the side when I move her around a lot. But it can eerily be moved back into place. However, this is a defect on my Dakota, not on the doll's design. Also, this is not a result of having her in the box for so long, she had the lazy eye since the day I purchased her from the AG store in New York.
