Kit was my first doll and will always be my favourite. She is so adorable. I love her freckles. Personally I think she is the best american girl doll yet. Her hair never gets messy. It only did once but that was the year I got her (2003) and she was pre mattel My favorite feature is her freckles. There just so detailed. And her eyes are the most fascinating shade of blue. She is a great choice for a younger girl or new comer. I highly recommend her.
