Light skin, layered brown hair, brown eyes Your girl can create a unique personality for her My American Girl® doll! This doll is 18" tall, with brown eyes that open and close. She has light skin and layered brown hair that can be styled, and she has a huggable cloth body. Plus, she arrives with a True Spirit Outfit and a charm-keeper necklace.
I looked at Ms. #59 closely while I was in LA. She is very similar in construction to #39 and #60 - light skinned classic mold, same style wig.
She has medium colored brown hair, lighter than Chrissa but darker than Kanani. Her wig is very smooth and silky with the layers. Given the wig similarity to #39, I am guessing the same issues will come out for some people - too silky to handle, random hairs sticking out of braids, etc. None of the dolls I saw had their hair in braids.
She seems that she would hold well to play, and I did not see any noticeable issues with this doll overall.
This doll was purchased for the intention of customisation, but I thought I'd review her before she isn't her canon self.
I give her an A. I think she's perfect for a young girl as a first doll. Hair easy to maintain, long enough to put in different hairstyles etc. However, it is rather silky and somewhat on the thin side. The top of her hair towards the back is extremely thin. My doll brush snags the wig cap every time I run it through her hair. Another thing I noticed is that the layers on the right side of her hair are not the same length as the left. Again this might be my particular doll who has this problem. I plan on cutting her hair so it does not bother me, but if this was a doll I wasn't customising, I wouldn't be happy.
This also may/may not be of significance to this doll in particular, but I found it difficult to pick her out. A few of them had weird eye and hair issues. So if you're looking to purchase this doll, I suggest to do it in person.
