I got JLY #25 several months ago. I named mine Juanita Mae Bankson after my grandmother after I learned that her cancer had come back and that my grandpa was in the hospital. My doll is from Switzerland, after my own ancestors.
Her hair is very nice and shiny but is the hardest to style of all my dolls. I can get it into pigtails, two braids, part braids, put up slightly, or put up with barrettes on either side with minimal effort. Her hair is pretty short.
I hate the outfit she came in, the I Like Your Style outfit, and Juanita only uses the underwear and the skort every once in a while.
I agree that JLY #25 can be for virtually any group of people (many Europeans and European immigrants come to mind) and can also represent biracial people (people who are half Polynesian, Tongan, even half Asian, Native American, etc).
