I just got Addy about 2 weeks ago. She is the only brand new AG I have ever bought for myself (all the rest except for her and Emily, who was a gift from my Grandma, came from the thrift store). I wanted her because she was the only available historical that I did not already own to have been around since my childhood and I've always been a Civil War buff. She is actually much more beautiful in person than even pictures convey. I love her. I have not tried brushing her hair yet, but I have heard about it falling out (and seen one on Ebay missing chunks of hair), but according to her care guide it should be okay if you use a pick and not a brush. Anyway, A+ for Addy because she is gorgeous and overall very high quality (her outfit too). Great doll. I highly recommend her.
