Kanani is very pretty. I had little interest in getting her, though (content to look at pictures here) until I saw her in person and fell in love. I love her hair! It is long and I agree could be hard for a young girl to deal with, but I think it will be a lot of fun to style and play with. I was worried about small eye because I didn't get to pick my Kanani in person. My sister has Jess and #30 and both have small eye. But, I lucked out and my Kanani doesn't seem to have it. I really like the Jess mold with the medium skin tone. My Kanani has a bit of a head tilt - which I know is fixable, but I think it's adorable and can make her look a bit shy or a little coy and teasing depending on the angle you look at it!
I like the dress. It's simple and made of lightweight cotton. I think it will work great as a summer sundress. The color is a very pretty light blue. Mine doesn't seem to be too big. Grade: A
I was a little disappointed the necklace has a ribbon instead of a clasp, but it works fine. It feels obviously plastic, though, but it looks cute with the dress. Grade: B
The flower is just a fabric flower on a clip but I think it's something my dolls will use a lot. It's a fun hair accessory. It does seem a little fragile. Grade: B+
The shoes feel flimsy to me and I suspect they do not stay on well without the clear elastic they come with. I haven't taken them off yet to know for sure. Grade: C+
I don't think I can grade the doll objectively (I like her so I got her) but my overall grade for her meet outfit is B+. Extra points for all of these parts coming with the doll. I thought for sure the necklace or flower clip would have been part of the accessories.
