This doll was purchased as a mini me for my daughter. I'm assuming that this doll was designed to replace the #3 that they retired. She is similar, but not the exact same, which is probably why they gave her a new number. She was immediately removed from her Real Me meet outfit, as DD doesn't like it.

This leads to fly-aways when styling or braiding. It is incredibly silky smooth, though. It has been very easy for DD to care for.
