As some of you know, I have been selling off most of my collection. My DH knew when I saw #32 how much I really wanted her. He arranged for me to get her! She arrived yesterday while I was out running errands. She is beautiful! Her hair is silky and I love the side part. She has clear blue eyes and I love the range of earrings she came with. 4 pairs of studs and three pairs of danglies. The book is okay. My DH and I looked through it together last night. One thing, I wished she had freckles, so last night I freckled her. We named her Holly. Sorry no pictures yet.
Her hair isn't real thick but it is playable. By that I mean, I enjoy brushing her hair and sweeping it up into a ponytail as well as pigtails. I am completely smitten and I think my DH is as well.
As I posted earlier, I freckled Holly the same day she arrived. I lived with "freckled Holly" for two weeks and decided to remove her freckles today. I used window cleaner and q-tips. I was very careful to stay away from her blush and her eyes. The freckles came off fairly easily and she is back to her original self and my DH thinks she looks better without her freckles. I think so too.
My oldest daughter fell in love with this doll the minute she debuted and begged for her for her birthday. I was pleasantly surprised when she arrived; Charlotte (as she is now named) is even prettier in person. We got the doll with the pierced ears, earring set and the cell phone and accessories. Here is our review - with lots of pictures!
Charlotte's hair is a honey blonde (rather than a light yellow blonde like #27) and her eyes are blue. She has the nice single layer bangs (which I love) and nice full sides; the back is a bit thinner than the sides but it's not really thin and looks very nice left down. With this wig, you can shake the doll with her hair down and when it settles you can't see through it. (Unlike my Jess, who suffers from premature alopecia and can only wear her hair in ponies or braids, poor dear.) My old #25 didn't have hair much thicker than this in back and #32 has the added bonus of the little shorter hairs in back so she can wear her pulled to the side without a problem.
We love the changeable earrings, too. The doll comes with a basic set of silver studs - hearts, round balls and stars (you actually end up with two sets of the stars since the doll comes with those in her ears, too) and three sets of earring jackets you can use to change the look (hoops, heart and stars). We love the hoops with the studs or stars best; I don't think Charlotte will be wearing the other earrings much. (We also got a set of the party earrings, which are much prettier and colourful.)
The hole in the ear is big but it holds the earrings in nicely and makes them easier (and safer, since the ends of the posts are blunt) for kids to get in and out.
I have to say I am in love with the new meet outfit! This outfit is actually something my girls would wear. The capri leggings and ballet flats have great mix and match potential...I'd definitely buy this outfit all on its own.
Here Charlotte is, straight out of the box,
I'd give this doll an A overall. There really isn't anything about her I would change and my daughter is madly in love with her...what more can you ask for?
I'm editing my review because I sounded extremely childish in it.
So here we go.
She has fabulous pale blue eyes and her hair is a honey golden color. Her features are cute and mine has very thin hair but it's fun too style. I do recommend her cause she is very cute. She's kind of my mini me but with bangs ( I do plan on getting bangs cause my forehead is huge. )

I got this doll last year for my birthday. I named her Cassandra, Cassie for short. I love her so much, and shes been on heaps of adventures. I think hers is when me and my family went back to Australia. She's a wonderful doll, although putting her hair up makes her look a tad bit...awkward..in my opinion, anyway.

I give this doll a TOTAL A+ she has beutiful blond hair that looks much better then it does in the picture! her hair is easy to manage and looks nice in alot of different styles! I totally recomend #32 as a first doll or a new addition to a collection!
I love this doll so much that I own two! They are my identical twins. On the left is Alexis Sage Evans, and on the right is Anneliese Margalo Evans, or "Annie".
The reason I like #32 so much is because this doll still has a sort of "baby look" to her. She looks so sweet and innocent and child-like, whereas many MyAG dolls tend to look more mature. Annie and Alexis are younger than my other dolls.
Although my twins are the same doll, Annie and Alexis have subtle differences between them. I can easily tell them apart. Alexis has thinner, slightly longer hair. Her hair tends to flip inward. Annie has much thicker hair and bangs, and shorter layers at the side of her hair. Her hair naturally flips outward. Their faces have slight differences as well.
All in all, this is a very cute doll.

#32 was our first ever purchase and experience with American Girl dolls. We picked this one because our daughter wanted one that looked like her - and this was the closest one we could find - even though the eye color is wrong.
Now that I've seen and felt more than one AG doll and have something to compare to, I feel the wig of this particular girl is definitely on the thin side - and ours was even a little dry right out of the package. I didn't think anything of it really until we received Felicity - and wow what a difference! If I had known better I probably would have looked through more dolls.
But hair quality aside - she is an adorable doll. I agree that she does look a little more young than some of the models - perhaps because of her shorter hair and baby blues. She just has a sweet look about her and always looks like she would be cheerful and happy. My daughter loves her to pieces - that is the most important thing!
