I remember buying Kanani the 2nd day she came out for my 4th doll, she's GORGEOUS!!!!!!! ;D I love her hair so much but, I barely touch it because it messes so easily I need to redo it a lot. I love the Jess mold, and it fits her perfectly!! And of course her cute little little hazel eyes which no doll has yet that has the Jess mold. And her outfit is SO Hawaiian!! Not counting the work that goes into her hair, she gets an A+!!

I've been wanting Kanani on and off for the past year; I almost bought her in-store last December when she was sold out online, and finally got off the fence and decided I had to have her. I received her catalog in the mail in Jan 2011 after no AG exposure for 15+ years so I give her credit for reintroducing me to AG as an adult.
She was purchased NIB at a crazy secondhand market price (well at least for me; up to this point all my dolls have been $75 and under). I don't typically use superlatives but this doll is stunning. Unfortunately, it took a bit of work to make her look in tip-top shape as her hair was a complete tangled wreck after removing the wig cap. I am intimidated by the length of her hair (one of the reasons why I didn't get her last year) and she will definitely be a display doll in the household. Her skin tone coloring is perfect and her hazel eyes are bright enough to prevent that beady-look I dislike in Jess. She looks fantastic in her meet dress even though it is very simple and of thin material.
At this point I have to give her an A-. She is beautiful yet her hair IS a bit crazy to deal with.
Update 12/19: Her hair is not as daunting as it seems. I style it regularly with little or no hassle. I'm going to upgrade her to an A!
