Such a pretty mini doll! she's a cutie. AFAIK, she's just about exactly like the bigger doll. the only bad thing seems to be that her hair doesn't like to stay down and it fluffs up and can be very annoying.
I love my American girls and my rabbits Ag's: Kaya, Felicity, Lissie, Samantha, Sammy, Nellie, Molly, Kailey, Marisol, Jess, Nicki, Mia, Chrissa, Sonali, Cher, Lily, Hannah, Eleanore, and Charlie Rabbits: too many to name!
This is EASILY my favorite Mini Doll. She's just like Big Nellie in every way.
For those of you having problems with her hair, try a little water and a fine toothed comb, or, even better, just a tiny bit of braid spray or other spray-in conditioner. Nellie's hair (big and little Nellie's hair) needs lots of weight to stay down and look cute.
We just got our Nellie mini doll recently, and I like her so much more than I thought I would. Her eyes look demonic in a lot of the pictures I have seen, and since we ordered her online, that's what I was expecting her to look like. She's really cute though! The hair on ours is a little uneven, but not at all poufy. She's probably my favorite of the five mini dolls we have.

I love my mini Nellie! She's absolutely adorable. I think the best thing about her are her bangs. Compared to mini Samantha's and mini Molly's, Nellie's bangs are the best.lol. They're nice and short and lie on her head very smoothly. Her hair gets easily ruffled if you lay her down but it's just as easy to comb it back straight. I love the texture. Her dress is cute as well, my only problem with it being the sash, which comes untied easily. Also, the elastic in the sleeves is almost nonexistent, so her sleeves are actually kind of long, not elbow length like to Big Nellie's. I love her hairbow too. Haven't tried to take it out--I'm afraid I won't get it back in.

Mini Nellie is so adorable! Marisol loves her! I don't know why but Mari has claimed almost of Nellie's things that I own. Mini Nellie's hair can get kind of poofy. My girls love dressing in Nellie's meet dress and matching mini Nellie. A+

Mini Nellie is cute! Definately cool to have if you can't find the 18". The stockings are a bit thicker than I'd like, but on the bright side I think they are less prone to snagging. Definately looks like Nellie in miniature. We purchased her with the intention of giving her to our eldest. However since I was able to find a Nellie on Ebay, we are giving that one to her instead (after a new head).
